Time for Another Family Movie Night

Sometimes life gives you more than you bargained for.

Such is the byline for the newest movie from P&G and Walmart, airing tomorrow night on FOX, and boy – can I relate to that statement! Just when I start to feel comfortable with where I am and what I am doing, God brings me out of my comfort zone with events that challenge me to trust in Him.

Change of Plans is a wonderful story of a young couple who are living a life just according to plan – their own plan, that is – when they get thrown a curve ball and must decide whether to adjust or give up on what could be an amazing opportunity for them to enrich their lives.

Here’s the official movie synopsis:

Up to this point, Sally Danville’s life has played out just as she hoped it would. A beautiful and free-spirited musician, she and her fighter-pilot husband, Jason, live life on the go, free of domestic responsibilities. But with a single phone call from Child & Family Services case worker, Dorothy (Phylicia Rashad, The Cosby Show), she learns that things don’t always go according to plan. Sally (Brooke White, American Idol) is met with the news that her best friend from college has died in a tragic accident on a Peace Corps mission and has named Sally the legal guardian of her four kids – 3 of them adopted from third-world countries. Now Sally and Jason (Joe Flanigan, Stargate Atlantis) must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with the culture clash of life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.

This is sure to be a story that makes you laugh and cry. What’s more, it can provide many teachable moments with your kids to discuss how we can make all the plans we want in life, but if we live a life for God and let Him direct our steps it can be an amazing life full of tremendous blessings!

While all opinions about Change of Plans are completely my own, I have been compensated by Walmart for my time and efforts to tell you about this movie.
