Film Review: Our Beautiful Secret


Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture.  Thirty years ago the Peavey family was told that their son would not live past his first birthday due to his severe disability.  Little did those physicians know that Jonathan Peavey would not only live but go on to participate in marathons and other races.

Our Beautiful Secret is a wonderful documentary created by Angela Peavey demonstrating how Jonathan beat the odds and inspired his family and others in the community with his special personality.

The documentary shares stories of the family’s challenges as well as interviews with community members who have been privileged to know Jonathan.

I would highly recommend Our Beautiful Secret for anyone interested in one family’s journey with cerebral palsy.  For more information on the documentary please visit
