One of my favorite people on the planet, and dearest family friends, is producing a very, very special movie. It is really close to my heart, and you need to know all about it. The film is called Alison's Choice. And it is produced by the wonderful Bruce Marchiano (see his Facebook page / and his website) He is such a dear friend of mine. I respect and admire him and his heart for the Lord immensely. He's the real deal. And has such a passion to save the lives of precious babies and to love on their sweet mamas. You may remember Bruce - he played Jesus in a beautiful portrayal, in The Gospel According to Matthew movie - a word for word portrayal of the book of Matthew in the NIV version. I am so thankful for his heart and his passion for Jesus. I recently met up with him and his precious family for dinner in North Hollywood, and we chatted all about this new film! Bruce and I met years ago... when I was just a little kid! He spoke and ministered at my family's church when I was about 14 years old, and became such a close, trusted friend to my family. He also became a significant role model in my life - I look up to him so much, learned from his faith and genuineness, and his care for people. He, his amazing wife, and precious daughter and son have amazing hearts and I truly just adore them!
So let me tell you about Alison's Choice. Oh, it is so close to my heart and such an important film, my friends. I encourage you to check out the website here.
Simply put, Alison's Choice is a film about life.
It is about a precious young woman who is facing pregnancy. The website describes the film like this:
“What would Jesus say to a woman having an abortion?” Now in development, Alison’s Choice is a feature film that answers this question, and in doing so, seeks to save unborn lives. The story is as compelling as it is simple: Alison, a teen, is facing pregnancy. With nowhere to turn, she finds herself in a “clinic” about to end her baby’s life. Suddenly a man appears. His mop tells her he’s the janitor. Conversation begins and it quickly becomes clear that this man is no mere janitor, but Jesus manifest. And he’s come to save the life of her baby.
