Change of Plans: TONIGHT!

There's supposed to be a great family movie on Fox TONIGHT (Sat. 1/8/11 at 8PM, 7 Central) called Change of Plans.  The movie is supposed to humorous and heartwarming with a message  that is pro-children, pro-adoption, and pro-family!  WOOHOO!  (Only we don't have TV in our home, so we'll have to wait for the DVD, which apparently will be out in March.  So, be sure to let me know if you like the movie!)  Oh, and there will be a live webcast after the movie where Paul Pennington, Executive Director and Founder of Hope for Orphans, will answer questions about adoption!  I'm re-posting Family Life's email message from Dennis Rainey that will tell you more about the movie and the webcast:
If you're anything like me, you sometimes have a hard time finding quality entertainment that you can watch with your family. That's why I am so excited to tell you about a new movie airing on Fox this Saturday night (8 PM, 7 Central), as part of Walmart and P&G's Family Movie Night series.

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.

To view a trailer for Change of Plans and to read more about the movie, visit the movie's official website by clicking here.

Immediately following the movie, you can tune in to a live webcast sponsored by Chick-fil-A's WinShape Foundation that features FamilyLife's own Paul Pennington, Executive Director of Hope for Orphans, as he and other leaders answer questions about adoption.

Join me and take some time with your family this Saturday night to watch this important movie. It's pro-family, pro-children, and pro-adoption - all things that are close to the heart of God. While you're at it, invite your friends and family to do the same, and make sure you tune in to the webcast afterwards.

One Home at a Time,
Dennis Rainey
