“ … To hold our children, life means so much to us. As we know it means so much to others. And when you watch this film and you’re a part of it, your emotions are moved unquestionably and all you want to do is reach out and just say anybody that’s impacted negatively, that it doesn’t have to be that way. People will love you, God will love you, and that there’s hope and there is mercy and there’s grace and redemption. And that’s what we want to show with this film, and that’s what Abby’s life shows us.”But I have to say, the highlight of the entire night for me was the car ride to the screening. I had the privilege of having dinner with Ashley, Brooks, the producers and other pro-life champions. Towards the end of dinner Ashley, along with a a dear friend of mine and I struck up the beginning of a great conversation about God moments. Those little moments when God reaches down and makes a connection with us through people, circumstances and holy signs. We were so into the conversation we decided to ride together to the screening. In the car, Ashley shared her heart so openly, and what struck me the most was her unwavering faith in God. She spoke of how she finds none of her value in her projects, but in God alone. She has no fear of not ever working in Hollywood again after this film, because in 2012 she gave her career over to God and she knows He will take care of her either way. Then we bonded over our love for Hallmark and I thought dang, this girl is the real deal. At the end of the night one of the producers told us of ways we could help the film. The number-one thing that was requested was prayer. One Facebook you can search for Unplanned Movie Prayer Team and join the cause. They are also in need of financial help for marketing. You can go to UnplannedFilm.com to donate. Finally, go see the movie! Get a big group together for a night out. This movie has the ability to change hearts and save lives. How are you going to help?
