Signed, Sealed, Delivered & A Free Bible Study

It can be challenging to find television programing which you can feel comfortable about the entire family watching together as so many reflect a value system which does not match what we value. There is however; a new series which runs on Sunday evenings on the Hallmark Channel which families can feel comfortable watching together; "Signed, Sealed, Delivered".

I was recently invited to watch an episode and share my thoughts about it with you; and let you know of a link where you will find a FREE seven-day Bible study from the American Bible Society which focuses on the themes in this series. You'll find the study at this link as well as a link where you can watch previously aired episodes of Signed, Sealed, Delivered.) 

The Hallmark Channel has this to say about Signed, Sealed, Delivered; "The new original series "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama that follows the lives of four postal detectives who transform themselves into a team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow always on time. The team includes charming Oliver O’Toole (Eric Mabius), the group's leader is a man of faith who prayerfully approaches his work with the goal of making a difference in people's lives; new team member, Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth), a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited, “girl next door” Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe) who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson), a master in conventional research methods.The show aires SUNDAYS, 8/7c on Hallmark."

While I thought some of the story-line dragged a little in the episode I watched, I do think this is a series which families with older elementary children; especially girls, will be able to watch, enjoy together and talk about. I watched the episode, "The Future Me" where a couple with Down's Syndrome want to get married and Rita competes in a contest at the Post Office. This show provides opportunities for families to talk about acceptance, bullying and how we each have a "future" and the support of family can help us become who we want to be!

If you have not already watched "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", mark your schedule, plan to pop a bowl of popcorn and watch it this coming Sunday - and get ready to have some important conversations with your grandchildren! Enjoy!
