CFDb Review!

An enjoyable film that reminds us that God is needed in our lives and how we need to pray and trust in Him and have faith that He will work things out. I especially loved the way that the town got together to help someone out.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.

Film Synopsis:

When Martha Evans (Kristy Swanson) finds herself homeless with her two young daughters and stepson just a week before Christmas, she puts her trust in a new town full of friendly strangers and prays for the best.

Martha’s no good husband, Cal (Bart Johnson), has left her for the last time, emptying her bank account and disappearing without a word. Hopeless, Martha takes the kids to a sleepy town where she moves into a motel and begs the owner of the local diner, Trudy (Tess Harper), to hire her as a waitress. Taking a chance, Trudy decides to help Martha and her children, even as things go from bad to worse when Martha’s car breaks down and her bills start piling up. Then, as Martha begins to meet more of the locals, including handsome sheriff Joe (K.C. Clyde), perky teenage babysitter Jeanie (Danielle Chuchran) and grumpy but warm-hearted diner regular Les (Edward Herrmann), Martha finds her faith just be restored—-until Cal returns. Can the town still give Martha the merry Christmas she needs, or will her past prevent her from the happiness she’s found this holiday?

    There are requests out there to find out what is the name of the song with “Mary’s Child” in it and who performed it. Does anyone know?

    12/19 – Answer – the album will be on Amazon this week. The Song is Mary’s child and the artist is Craig Clyde.

    Here is a link to amazon.

    The movie A Christmas Wish was great! In the motel that they were in there is a picture on the wall, where can I find out more info on it? I believe I have one like that.

    I am looking for the sheet music for the song “Mary’s Child” from the movie “A Christmas Wish” that was on Hallmark Channel. Our small choir would like to sing it for our Christmas program. But we have not been able to find the sheet music for the song. Thank you and Merry Christmas, Sheryl
