MAY 7-13, 2014 UCW 23 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM This week the Buzz is all about Mom. We'll look at the hilarious new movie Mom's Night Out and hear from a couple of recording artists who are doing their best to juggle their music career and their most important job — motherhood. With so many family-friendly movies coming out this year, Mom's Night Out is unique in its approach. Faith and family are definitely a part of the storyline, but not the central part. The moms in Moms' Night Out portrayed by Sarah Drew, Patricia Heaton and Andrea Logan White, just need some time away from the crazyness of life at home. Their husbands, played by Sean Astin and Courageous stars Alex Kendrick and Kevin Downes are willing to help make that happen… they think. What unfolds during this night will touch your funny-bone and your heart in equal measure. If you treasure family, you have got to see this movie! Here are a few reviews of the film: "Moms' Night Out is the type of film we wish there were more of: fun and funny for the whole family, touching and sweet, with a simple reminder of God's love for us. This isn't just a Moms Night Out — this is a date night and family night all rolled into one." Gary Smalley "Moms' Night Out is a game changer. I laughed out loud so many times, fell in love with the characters, saw myself in their real- life situations, and wept at how the film spoke directly to my heart. This is a must-see for every mom and just a fantastic, feel-good family comedy. We loved it so much!!!" Francesca Battistelli "As a mom I can totally relate to this film, and I think every mom will feel like their life is being played out on the screen. It's hilarious and heartwarming and a quality film that the whole family can enjoy together." Natalie Grant Moms' Night Out comes out this Friday in theaters everywhere, including Millstone 14 in Hope Mills and Marketfair 15 in Fayetteville. Francesca Battistelli Francesca Battistelli loves being a wife to percussionist/husband Matthew Goodwin and mom to two adorable kids. Eli is almost 3 and Audrey will have her first birthday in June. Often you will find the whole family on the road when Battistelli is touring and she wouldn't have it any other way. In fact you can hear Battistelli's story in a nutshell in the song "I Am Home" from her new cd "If We're Honest". Very fun and honest song…kind of like Battistelli herself. Natalie Grant After being told they had only a 3 percent chance to conceive a child, Natalie Grant and her husband and longtime producer Bernie Herms, were blessed with twin girls (Grace Ana and Isabella Noelle) in 2007 after numerous fertility treatments. Then in 2010, they got "the miracle we never asked for" with the birth of their third daughter Sadie Rose. After Sadie was born, however, Grant experienced postpartum depression, driven in part by her feelings of inadequacy when it came to parenting and the overwhelming pressures of trying to balance her busy work schedule with motherhood, family and faith. Her album Hurricane brings us with her through the process of God bringing her out of depression and into real peace. Happy Mother's Day to all our mom's! Now go treat yourself to a great movie and have a wonderful weekend! Celebrate Moms This Week With Movies and Music by STEVE TURLEY STEVE TURLEY, Christian 107.3 COMMENTS?
