Are you looking for something fun to watch with the kids tonight? I highly recommend watching GodMothered available on DisneyPlus. What’s more, the movie is filled with lessons kids can learn.
Set at Christmas time, GODMOTHERED is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.
Here are 3 Lessons kids will learn GodMothered available Exclusively on DisneyPlus
Don’t Give Up: The main character in the story Eleanor who only heart’s desire is to become a Godmother. When she realizes that she will not accomplish her goals in her current circumstance, instead of just giving up. She makes changes necessary to achieve her goals.
Often, as we are working towards our dreams, obstacles will arise to set us off course. By watching Eleanor’s humorous journey, viewers will be inspired never to give up and create their goals if they don’t give up.
Find Your Inner Happiness: When Mackenzie meets Eleanor, she is, of course, skeptical and wants absolutely nothing to do with her. However, Macken believes that sometimes life isn’t as simple as happily ever after. However, through a series of events, Eleanor helps Mackenzie find her inner joy and happily ever after. Things happen in life that break our spirits. However, if we step back and spend time during stuff we use to love, our hearts will eventually, and we will find happiness again.
It’s Ok To Grieve: A tragic event causes Mackenzie and her family to stop doing what they use to enjoy because they are heartbroken because of their loss. Often when we lose someone, it hard for us to do the things we enjoyed doing with them because it’s a constant reminder of what we lost. However, we have to remember that our loved ones, who are gone, would want us to keep going after are a dream.
Overall, Godmothered is a beautiful film that is much needed this holiday. Although the story is set against a Christmas-themed background, the story isn’t center around Santa Claus, and it brought out the holiday magic inside me. If you are looking for a movie to see with the kids, I recommend this one.
