The second summer I was a youth group intern, the summer between my sophomore and junior years of college, the youth pastor left to take over at another church. It was one of the most challenging experiences of my life. And for some reason, escapism that summer came in the form of watching Mary Poppins and Joel Osteen.

I can’t explain it.

I just know that as a kid, and even as an adult, this film holds a sweet and special place in my heart.

When I saw this trailer for Saving Mr. Banks, well, I just already teared up so that’s gonna be a real treat for whoever is forced to sit beside me in December 2013.

Have you seen this trailer yet? Are you excited about the movie?
