My children do not typically watch a lot of television. There are several reasons for this. First, we do not have cable, satellite, or any local channels. Secondly, at our home, movies are only allowed during the weekends. Thirdly, it is rare to find good quality entertainment. When we do find such a movie we are quick to purchase it.
With many families reporting much concern about prime-time television broadcasting content that is not suitable for their families Wal-Mart and Procter and Gamble have partnered together to provide top family-quality entertainment. Some of you may have heard of these movies: Secrets of the Mountain and The Jensen Project. Their goal was to produce a clean, wholesome movie that parents would gladly watch with their children. We have watched both of these movies.
For a fun family night be sure to make plans next Friday, December 3rd.
At 7 p.m. CST on NBC you can watch their third movie: A Walk In My Shoes.

What would you learn if you stepped into someone else’s life? Ever judge someone just by looking at them? Of course, we’ve all made snap judgments about people. But what if we really got to know them? How would our opinions change? And what if we were forced to become them… how would the shoes fit then? Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey can’t understand her students’ lack of effort and why their parents don’t seem to care. This is especially true of Justin Kremer, a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting. This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly, a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. When Trish wrecks her car, Molly is there as Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has personally judged and criticized. Trish discovers that there is often more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with. Her husband, her daughter, the ex-Marine next door… No one is left unchanged.
Before the movie airs next Friday I will be posting a complete review so be sure and check back. For more information you can also visit their website.
