Years ago my mom called me and said she was mailing me a book that I simply HAD to read. She does not do this often, so I anxiously awaited the package. Finally, the book arrived and it was called “Same Kind of Different As Me.” Once the kids were in bed I opened the cover and began reading. Within 48 hours, I had finished the book and called my mom so we could discuss it. It was an amazing book. Then recently I was reached out to in order to gauge my interest in helping to promote a movie that is releasing this October. You can imagine the joy that filled me when I saw the movie was called Same Kind of Different As Me!

“Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody.” Words of wisdom from a homeless drifter; words that never would be shared with the world if not for a wayward husband, a forgiving wife, and an unforgettable true story that brought the three of them together.

With more money than they could ever possibly need, Ron and Debbie Hall have everything they could ever want … except for a loving marriage. When Ron’s unfaithfulness is brought to light, Debbie invites him to stay—as long as he remains truthful and does what she asks of him. But when her request includes serving the homeless at an inner-city rescue mission, Ron would prefer to write a large check instead. Guided by her faith and spurred on by the dream of a homeless man she senses will change their city, Debbie befriends a disenfranchised man named Denver. More surprisingly, so does Ron. Despite vast differences, their lives begin to intersect and they all are changed … forever.

I must have watched this trailer half a dozen times now.  The cast includes Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou and Jon Voight.  The movie will release October 20, 2017, but you can secure tickets and learn more by visiting their website today.

I am so excited for this release and cannot wait to see it.  Plus….BONUS!  I have two FREE Fandango movie tickets to offer to one lucky reader so you can go see Same Kind of Different As Me!!!
