Keep in mind these movies make great:

  • Youth activity nights

Most Loved LDS Movie of All

Once I Was a Beehive is by far and away the favorite and I agree with you. It's full of humor, insights, and boosts your own testimony in the process. Lane Speer is a 16 year old girl dealing with the loss of her father when she somehow gets roped into attending a LDS girls camp with her new Beehive cousin. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and even cringe. Don't miss it! You can watch now on Netflix but I recommend buying Once I Was a Beehive- it's the kind of movie worth supporting.
