Guess Who's Coming to Christmas - UP Christmas Movie


Guess Who's Coming to Christmas

Previously Titled: Jingle Bell Rock

Network: UP
(previously known as: GMC)

Original Air Date: December 8, 2013


Drew Lachey
Mackenzie Porter


A jaded rock star, in order to repair his tarnished image, publicly agrees to fulfill a kid's Dear Santa Christmas wish. To his dismay, he ends up agreeing to spend the holidays in small town America and performing in the local holiday Christmas concert. He's mortified at the prospect of staying in the home of an idyllic, close-knit family but soon realizes the true value in what they have – love, caring and a memorable holiday spirit.

from UP-TV:

Jaded rock star Dax is found by New York paparazzi passed out in his car with a frozen holiday turkey in the passenger seat. In order to repair his tarnished image, Dax publicly agrees to grant a fan's "Dear Santa" Christmas wish. To his dismay, his manager Jason drops Dax off in Cedar Grove, a Midwest small town, where he's committed to spend a week and perform in a local holiday Christmas concert. At first, Dax is horrified to be stuck in the Reverend Harding family's home with strict rules and a curfew. But he soon becomes charmed by the Reverend's wife Lynne, teenage son Tim and very surprised contest winner and daughter Kelly, a sassy, unemployed book jacket writer. Dax begins to appreciate what the Hardings have as a family – love, caring and an uplifting holiday spirit. The movie features an original musical duet by Lachey and Porter, entitled "You."


Drew Lachey plays a jaded rock star determined to restore his image by fulfilling a kid’s Christmas wish. But things go south, or in this case north, when the wish means he’s supposed to perform at a small town Christmas concert.

The movie also stars country singer-actress Mackenzie Porter as Lachey’s love interest.

When competitive sports anchor Bruce Dalt (Bruce Boxleitner) gets in a scuffle with a ref at his son’s basketball game, he is suspended from his job and sentenced to community service — manning a red kettle and ringing bells for the Salvation Army for the rest of the Christmas season. At first he finds this humiliating, and in his self-pity determines to be the world’s worst bell ringer, but as he encounters the people behind the kettle, his life – and especially his relationship with his son – is changed by something as simple as ringing a bell.

Duck Dynasty Season Finale Tonight, Jack!


Just wanted to share today that my family's favorite Reality Show, "Duck Dynasty", will have it's Season Finale tonight at 10 PM (est) on A&E!

Are you a fan of the Show and the Robertson family?

My family absolutely is! We even go around quoting them or saying phrases the way they do. Such as... "Hey!", "Noooo", and "Jack", like Uncle Si.

Or, "Happy, Happy, Happy", "Now we're cooking with Peanut Oil", and "That's what I thought", like Phil.

And, one from Jase... "When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it, Quick-ly!"

If you are not familiar with Duck Dynasty - it is a show about the Robertson family who make Duck Calls. It's a Family Business first started by Phil Robertson who created and patented the Duck Calls they create. From there, his son Willie took over as CEO and made the company what it is today - a multi-million business. Also working at Duck Commander, is Uncle Si, Phil's sons Jase and Jep, and Willie's wife Korie. At the end of every show, you will see the family come together and gather around the dinner table, and Phil will always say a prayer over the food and the family.

All in all, it's great fun and we thoroughly enjoy the show - laughing pretty much the entire time it's on! Plus, we love the re-runs, too! Like an "I Love Lucy" show - good comedy never gets old and we enjoy watching them over and over again!

"At the end of the day, it's all about Family."
-Willie Robertson

Duck Dynasty... a Family with a Calling!

Praying for Boston

Hearing about this terrorist attack on Boston, at the Patriot Day Marathon, was devastating... an attack on our Country, our beloved USA, our fellow Americans. And, then to hear three had been killed, including a very innocent 8 year old boy - was absolutely heartbreaking.

Then, we personally learned that some of our relatives were there, as well. They had trained for a year and were running the race. No word had been heard from them since the bombing took place and cell phone service had been cut off. It was hours later when we learned that they were all right. My Aunt was in tears, crying with relief. My heart ached for those who did not receive the same call... for those who were not coming home that night.

Our Prayers go out to the Victims families, the Wounded, the Survivors, and all of the Rescuers. God bless them. We pray for their physical and mental well-being.

God Bless America!

Movie Review: Ring the Bell


Ring the Bell

Rated: PG

Available on DVD: April 9, 2013

*Please Note: This Movie is not currently being aired on TV... although it would be a perfect fit for numerous networks, such as: GMC, INSP, TBN, NRB, etc...

I was given the wonderful opportunity to screen this movie before it was released on DVD... so I could share my thoughts on it with all of you! Please see my Movie Review and the Official Trailer Below!

Ashley Anderson McCarthy ... Daisy Cooke
Casey Bond ... Danny Cooke (Scooter)
Robert Caso ... Peter / Fess

Rick Sutcliffe ... Himself

from the official site:

Slick, big-city sports agent Rob Decker has it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stands in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? Sometimes the next big thing isn't what you expect.

This heartwarming story of redemption will entertain and inspire the whole family.

The Movie Features Christian Music Artists: Mark Hall of Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West and Baseball Legends: Rick Sutcliffe, John Kruk, and Ben Zobrist.

Movie Review:

There is a large bell that hangs from a tree at the Cooke Boys Ranch. Danny and his sister Daisy Cooke welcome in young boys there, who may be troubled or abandoned and have no other place to go. When the bell is rung, everyone comes running because they know someone has just made the most important decision of their life!

What is it? Why is the Bell rung? It is so wonderful... that it even changes the course of life for Rob Decker, a high-powered sports agent, who until this moment in his life has only sought fame and fortune. Rob has come to the small town of Middletown to give a young man the chance to change his life - not knowing his life would ultimately be changed forever!

This faith-based movie will draw you in for the chase of the next great baseball pitcher, while you also discover... as Daisy shares with Rob, “Sometimes what you are looking for, is not what you are looking for.”

Rob Decker believes that every person will choose money and power over anything else in this world, until he meets Danny Cooke, also known as Scooter, the legendary high school baseball player, who had many choices and opportunities playing ball, but chose the unexpected, in order to fulfill God’s calling.

“Ring the Bell” is such a Moving and Inspiring story of not only choosing, but listening, praying, and following the path God has designed specifically just for you!

See or Skip:

See! "Ring the Bell" is Powerful and Amazing... a Home-Run Hit!

Great for Youth Groups, Sports Teams, Baseball Fans, Family Viewing, etc...


Ring the Bell - Available on DVD
