Walking Upright: Order My Steps...

"Who said Walking Upright would be easy?" On the surface self-assured, Tyler Kensington seems to have it all-a fulfilling career on the fast track, a steady relationship, and a tight-knit circle of family and friends. But, upheaval is just around the corner.

Faced with reality of losing her job and her relationship, Tyler ventures into unfamiliar territory when her best friend Alex convinces her to relocate to San Diego. Her mom chides her about growing in her relationship with the Lord and her "I grew up in church" mantra will gradually mean less and less. Her friends, Alex and Rae, though well-meaning, are in no position to offer Tyler spiritual advice. San Diego brings a new friend and co-worker, Chrissie, an older lady who becomes like a mother figure at her new church, Yolanda, and finally meeting someone who isn't "packaged" to her taste-who isn't even on her "menu." Tyler whines to God, "This Ain't What I Ordered!" "Watch what unfolds as Tyler Kensington, the self-assured, "I grew up in church girl, experiences the Word growing up in her."
