Family TV time

Truth Be Told poster from Moms4Family TVHow often do you sit down to watch tv with your children, only to grab for the remote during commercials or suddenly realize the content isn’t quite appropriate for all viewers in the room? Too often in my house – especially when it comes to the commercials. Make plans this Saturday (tomorrow night) to gather the family for a special Family Movie Night with Truth Be Told.

When leading marriage counselor Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is offered an opportunity to host a relationship talk show, she jumps at the chance. But fearful that being single might ruin her big break, she conspires with an old college friend and recent widower, Mark Crane (David James Elliott), to pose as a married couple with kids. Their story starts to unravel when Annie and Mark join her eccentric soon-to-be boss (Ronny Cox) for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. Comical misunderstandings mark the event as Annie struggles to keep up the ruse, finding herself emotionally invested and conflicted by her own conscience. Will she confess the truth about her marital status and her feelings for Mark… and will the truth set them free?

One of my favorite things about Family Movie Night is that it’s sponsored by Walmart and P&G and the commercials they provide are just as wholesome and family friendly as the show they’re supporting. It’s refreshing to be able to watch something with my husband and daughters without worrying about inappropriate movie content or offensive commercials.

Join us in watching Saturday night. The more families who watch will help shows like this post good ratings, which in turn will make networks more receptive to this style of programming and encourage sponsorship of other true family shows.
