A Week Away Coming To Netflix Friday, March 26!! #Ad #RWM #AWeekAway

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Netflix.

    "Every once in awhile, somebody is just a week away from an experience that changed everything for them."

One week.  It doesn't sound like much, but if last year taught us anything, it's that things can change very quickly in just one week. 

One decision. One experience. One week. That truly is all that it takes for your world to completely change. That is why I so loved this quote from the new Netflix movie 'A Week Away'.

Here's a little bit about the movie:

A Week Away is Netflix’s first musical film of its kind, releasing March 26th Troubled teen Will Hawkins (Kevin Quinn) has a choice to make - go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp. While at camp, and with the help of his music, new friends and love interest (Bailee Madison), he learns the healing powers of kindness, forgiveness, and faith can be found in the most unlikely of places.

When I saw this trailer for the very first time, I couldn't help but to think back on my own Christian summer camp experience... an experience that showed me just how true this quote could be. For me- like some of the characters in this musical- it may have lasted only a week each summer, but it shaped the course of my life tremendously. At 33 years old, I still look back on those summers as some of the greatest moments in my life. 

For me being raised in a church, there was never a time when I didn't believe that the existence of God was real. I was the good Christian girl who never got into in trouble and always followed the rules... When a friend invited me to attend a local Christian camp that her grandma's church had offered to pay for us to attend, it seemed like a no-brainer (you know, aside for the lack of an adventurous bone in my body anyway). I didn't realize just what an impact it would have on my relationship with God. It was there that I first heard contemporary worship music (a far cry from the conservative hymns I'd grown up with in my country church) and learned what it meant to wholeheartedly and unapologetically live out my faith. 

Many in attendance were like myself those who'd grown up in the church, whereas others still were much like Will-- church camp wasn't really their scene. And yet, we saw changes in each of us summer after summer. It was a place that allowed me and so many others to experience a range of emotions from laughter and fun to true spiritual change. In just ONE WEEK. 

As Netflix's first Christian original, I loved this idea of a movie depicting that experience in some way. While I intend to share my full review about the film itself very soon, for now I encourage you all to check out the trailer for 'A WEEK AWAY' below and set a reminder to check out this unique musical on Netflix when it premiers. 

 'A WEEK AWAY' is coming to Netflix this Friday, March 26th.
