What are you doing this Saturday night? Any chance you have a little time to watch a family movie together?
It's pretty rare that I'll encourage you to watch a TV show with your family. (I have very low opinions about television.) So, I'm pretty excited to tell you about Change of Plans, a pro-family, pro-adoption movie on Fox this Saturday night.
Check out the trailer here: Change of Plans
Change of Plans tells the story of a young couple, Sally and Jason, whose lives are turned upside down when Sally's best friend from college is killed in a tragic accident. Sally and Jason are forced to make some life-altering decisions when they discover that she has been named legal guardian to her friend's four children, three of whom were adopted from third world countries. Change of Plans stars Brooke White (American Idol) and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) and according to the official website, portrays how "fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others." What a great discussion starter for you to engage your kids around issues that are truly important. - Dennis Rainey, Family Life
After the movie is over, take a moment and talk with your children about the story line and what it means to invest in the lives of others.
Don't forget, this Saturday night, gather the whole family together, pop some popcorn and spend a night at the movies - in your family room!
