Here We Come A-Wassailing
You’ll meet a young woman whose Christmas drive home in remote North Dakota starts out as a lonely trek through the snow, but turns into quite an adventure. As she picks up a ragtag assortment of strangers who are stranded, she wonders if God has placed her on a Christmas mission. Will her rather reserved mother welcome her new band of friends home for the holidays, or will she turn them all away? You’ll marvel at how God’s detours often lead to greater blessings. It’s a Christmas miracle in the making you don’t want to miss.
Ring of Kindness
Christmas brings fresh feelings of loss for Taryn as she grapples with the death of her husband. Her sorrow is punctuated by the fact that during their last Christmas together, she lost her wedding ring. When she receives a random act of kindness from an elderly man at the grocery store, she sets out to pay it forward by offering her tree and ornaments to a family whose house burned to the ground. In focusing on bringing holiday joy to others, she receives more than she could have imagined. You’ll marvel at how God restores what is lost when our hearts are open.
Henry and Rose Pearson challenge each other to spend no more than $20 on a gift. Not a problem for an experienced shopper such as Rose, but her rough-around-the edges retired sailor husband almost gives up. Something inside urges him on, and at the last minute, he finds a gift at a secondhand store that takes his breath away. Henry’s quest for the perfect gift pays off in an incredible way, bringing the couple back to their very first Christmas. The story behind it, and the joyous surprise he gives his bride of over fifty years will make you cry tears of joy. Not to be missed!
A Father’s Gift
A young couple anxiously awaits the birth of their first child during the harsh winter of 1866. Life in Northern California is hard and the townspeople want to rally around them, but Cole Foster is suspicious and somewhat embittered toward his new neighbors. Having witnessed how the gold rush broke up his own family and led his father to abandon him, he wants to rely only on himself. However, God brings him into a season of need that softens his heart so he can learn to trust again. And, there is an extra surprise in store that rights a wrong from many years ago.
