Remembering Actress Patty Duke... "To Everything there is a Season..."

I know we were all saddened to hear of the sudden, recent passing of actress Patty Duke, on Tuesday March 29th at the age of 69. She was wife, mother, and actress on stage, television, and film.

- Actress Patty Duke -

Patty was born Anna Marie Duke on December 14, 1946 in Elmhurst, New York, to Frances and John Brock Duke. At the age of 8, her mother sent her to live with talent managers, who changed her name to Patty, hoping for success.

Patty will best be remembered from The Patty Duke show, which aired from 1963-66, where she portrayed the roles of identical cousins. Her rise to fame and notoriety first came when at 16 she played the role of Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker". She received an Academy Award in 1960 for Best Supporting Actress for her amazing portrayal.

At her passing, Patty was married to Michael Pierce for nearly twenty years. She had three sons, Sean Astin, Mackenzie Astin, and Kevin Pearce.

Patty Duke pictured with her two actor sons Mackenzie and Sean Astin

Patty Duke portrayed countless roles on TV shows & movies... including: The Virginian, Valley of the Dolls, Two on a Bench, Hawaii Five-O, Marcus Welby, M.D., The Streets of San Francisco, Captains and the Kings (Mini-Series), The Miracle Worker (TV Movie portraying Ann Sullivan this time as Melissa Gilbert portrayed Helen), The Babysitter, It Takes Two, George Washington (Mini-Series), The Love Boat, Perry Mason, Prelude to a Kiss, One Woman's Courage, Cries from the Heart, Harvest of Fire, Frasier, A Christmas Memory, and many more... plus she won 3 Emmys for her roles on the TV series Touched by an Angel!

Hallmark movie watchers have also been blessed to see Patty Duke in a number of Hallmark made-for-television movies, including the Hallmark Hall of Fame film "A Season for Miracles" in which she portrays, so poignantly now, an angel.

Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie: A Season for Miracles

Patty Duke also starred in the fun Hallmark Channel movie "Falling in Love with the Girl Next Door" with Patrick Duffy, Shelley Long, and Bruce Boxleitner, as well as one of the Pioneer Series "Love Comes Softly" films "Love Finds a Home". Ironically her actor son Mackenzie, had a role in the second film from the series "Love's Enduring Promise" and her eldest son Sean, also an actor, had a role in the last film of that series (so far)... "Love's Christmas Journey".

Actress Patty Duke in Hallmark's "Love Finds a Home"

Patty also worked with her son Sean in 2012 on the faith based film, "Amazing Love", which is a touching story of the Old Testament prophet Hosea.

Following Patty Duke's passing her family released this statement, "This morning, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, matriarch and the exquisite artist, humanitarian, and champion for mental health, Anna PATTY DUKE Pearce, closed her eyes, quieted her pain and ascended to a beautiful place."

"We celebrate the infinite love and compassion she shared through her work and throughout her life. I love you mom" added Sean Astin.

Our prayers go out now to her dear family and friends, as they enter this new season without their beloved Anna "Patty" Duke.

*Where will You stand?* Jesse Metcalfe and Melissa Joan Hart star in "God's Not Dead 2"!

Coming to a Theater near YOU - 
April 1st, 2016, the All New Theater Movie Release...
God's Not Dead 2!

Storyline via official web-site:
"From the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?

Welcome back to Hope Springs … home not only of Hadleigh University, but also Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history. Her love of teaching, her love for her students, and her love of life all come from the same place: her love of Christ.

So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace, their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ.

When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace’s reasoned response lands her in big trouble—almost before she even finishes giving her answer.

With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case that could cost her the career she loves and expel God from the classroom—and the public square—once and for all!

GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the beloved Pure Flix movie from 2014 and features an all-star cast. Coming to theaters beginning April 1, 2016, GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 will have audiences standing proudly for what they believe … while they still can. Where will you stand?"

I first saw an extended trailer of the movie, "God's Not Dead 2", with my family when we attended the KLOVE Christmas Concert in December, 2015 and I knew I just had to share it with all of you!

Let me tell you... the crowd at the concert, which had been extremely loud, talkative, and boisterous, in between a break of waiting for the next music artist to come out, became in a moment absolutely silent, completely absorbed in this powerful story the moment it hit the big screen in front of us. It was evident by everyone's reaction, we were all in awe of this amazing account, based on a real life event, and how it impacts our life today... how we must as Christians and Americans continue to fight for our way of life and religious freedom, before it's too late.

Movie Trailer - "God's Not Dead 2"::

Actor Jesse Metcalfe, who all of us TV movie watchers know from the Hallmark Channel movie "A Country Wedding" and the much anticipated upcoming Hallmark Summer Series "Chesapeake Shores", stars in this new film "God's Not Dead 2", alongside an all star cast with...

Melissa Joan Hart ("Sabrina", "The Santa Con", "Melissa and Joey"),
David A.R. White (from the original "God's Not Dead", "Faith of our Fathers"),
the late Senator Fred Thompson ("Law &Order", "Secretariat"),
Pat Boone ("April Love", "State Fair"),
Robin Givens ("Head of the Class", "A Christmas to Remember"),
Sadie Robertson ("Duck Dynasty"),
Ray Wise ("Mad Men", "Agent Carter"),
Ernie Hudson ("Miss Congeniality", "Dear Secret Santa"),
Hayley Orrantia ("The Goldbergs"), and many more!!!

Here's a Video Clip of Melissa Joan Hart - behind the scenes of "God's Not Dead 2"::

Interview with Melissa Joan Hart and Jesse Metcalfe on "God's Not Dead 2"::

The first movie in this series, "God's Not Dead" was a box office hit starring Kevin Sorbo (by the way, another Hallmark star with movie credits: "Avenging Angel", "Shadow on the Mesa", and "The Santa Suit"), Shane Harper (of Disney Channel's "Good Luck, Charlie"), and Dean Cain (Yet another Hallmark alum, "Operation Cupcake",  "The Case for Christmas", etc...). It is an impactful film of faith that takes you through the course of events through many people's lives that don't connect until the end of the story. The first "God's Not Dead" movie is available on DVD.

God's Not Dead 2: The Heart of the Story:

 sincerely hope this new movie in the God's Not Dead film series - "God's Not Dead 2", will surpass all of Hollywood's expectations and be even greater than the one before!

Please check the official web-site here - to see when  "God's Not Dead 2" is playing in a theater near you!

In Rememberance, "Goodnight Earl Hamner", Creator and Narrator of "The Waltons"...

Earl Hamner on The Waltons porch

Surrounded by his family, Earl Hamner, best known as the Creator and Narrator of "The Waltons" television series... passed away on Thursday, March 24, 2016 at the age of 92.

From the beginning, and still today, we devoted fans welcome Earl Hamner's show, The Waltons, into our homes with high regard, knowing each episode will give us a warm, heartwarming family story and values we can always depend on. Based upon his own upbringing and family life growing up, The Waltons in a way over the years have become extended members of our own family. The character of John Boy, on the series was based on Earl's Hamner's own childhood days growing up in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Video Clip via INSP, of Earl Hamner talking about The Waltons and John Boy...

Born on July 10, 1923, Earl Hamner, Jr. was the eldest son of Doris Marion Giannini and Earl Henry Hamner, Sr. Earl would eventually have eight siblings, one more than portrayed on The Waltons weekly television series... Cliff (Jason), Marian (Mary Ellen), Bill (Ben), Paul (Ben), Audrey (Erin), James (Jim Bob), and Nancy (Elizabeth).

Eric Scott (Ben), Earl Hamner, Jr. (Narrator), Kami Cotler (Elizabeth),
Richard Thomas (John-Boy), Jon Walmsley (Jason), and Judy Norton (Mary Ellen)

According to Earl Hamner's official web-site, "Money was short, and books were a luxury they could not afford. Their "library" consisted of the Holy Bible, (the King James Version), and a manual of bee-keeping. Doris and Earl strongly encouraged all the children in their growing family to excel, and Earl Jr. became interested in writing at an early age. He was writing his numbers at the age of two and reading at four. His poem "My Dog" was published on the Children's Page of the Richmond Times-Dispatch when he was six. Earl claims he knew he was going to become a writer from that day."

While studying at the University of Richmond, in 1943, Earl was drafted into the army. "Hamner then spent several months at the 19th Replacement Depot in England learning how to diffuse land mines, one of the most dangerous of Army jobs." via his bio. "Two months after D-day he landed on Omaha Beach, and, because his officers had discovered that he knew how to type, he was re-assigned to the 542nd Quartermaster Corps which he served in Paris. He loved Paris, learned to speak French, and made friends with the French people including a special girl named Jeanine. It was here, after the end of the war, that he began in earnest sending off stories for publication and amassing rejection slips."

After being discharged from the army in 1946, he found work in radio, and in 1948, "received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in broadcasting from the College of Music of the University of Cincinnati." (source)

Earl's own life experiences during the depression were the basis for his writings and the eventual Waltons TV show, beginning with his novel, The Homecoming, which first became a Christmas TV Special. Before the success of The Waltons, however, he wrote episodes of The Twilight Zone, and the movie Spencer's Mountain was based on his novel.

Earl Hamner married Jane Martin in 1954. They had two children, Scott and Caroline. Both had roles, as teenagers, in The Homecoming Christmas Special when it first appeared on TV, CBS, in 1970.

The Waltons - The Homecoming Special

Writing was a part of Earl Hamner, all of his life, from that first moment he learned to read at a young age of 4. At a time, when a man, or even a young boy, was expected to work with his hands and money was scarce, I would say that was quite fortuitous of his parents to instill the love of learning at such a young age, especially in that day and age, where times were truly hard.

If you would like to know more about Earl Hamner's life, writings, and TV shows, I encourage you to visit Earl's web-site, and read the tribute given there, written by Earl's devoted friend, James Person, Jr., who wrote Earl Hamner's Biography, Earl Hamner From Walton's Mountain to Tomorrow.

Biography of Earl Hamner

The Waltons series began in 1972 and ended in 1981. Six Reunion movies followed, with the last one airing in 1998, A Walton Easter.

The INSP web-site gave a wonderful tribute to Earl that includes heartfelt, touching statements from The Waltons cast members. Thankfully, we can continue to watch The Waltons every weekday on the INSP television network and hear the amazing voice of Earl Hamner narrating the story.

The Waltons Home - Saying Goodnight...

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Earl Hamner's dear family, friends, and the cast members of The Waltons, who I know are like family.

Earl's son shared that his dad died peacefully in his sleep, so it is appropriate that we all say now...
"Goodnight Earl".

We are grateful to Earl Hamner for the joy he has brought into our homes and our families lives each time we turn on The Waltons and return to a simpler time. I pray the legacy of this endearing series will carry on forever...

NOT Airing on TV this Easter...

An Easter themed movie, sadly not being shown this year, is The Waltons last reunion movie "A Walton Easter". It is a very nice family movie that is typically shown each Easter. It is, however, available, thankfully on DVD.

Also... Unfortunately, as many of you already know, there is not a listing this year on ABC, or any other station, for the Charlie Brown Easter Special, “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown”. I know all Charlie Brown episodes are something truly special and dear for each holiday, so the whole Peanuts gang will be wholeheartedly missed this Easter Season.

You can, however, see the animated movie HOP on Freeform (formerly ABC family) - March 26, 2016 at 10:30pm/9:30c. And, on Easter, March 27, 2016 at 3:30pm/2:30c. and repeats at 10pm/9c.
The Disney Channel will also air HOP, as it has several times this week, once more on Friday March 25 at 5:20pm/4:20c.

Plus, the sweet cartoon Mickey's Great Clubhouse Hunt airs on March 26 ....
on Disney Channel at 7am/6c.
on Disney Jr. at 7:30am/6:30c.
on Disney Channel at 10am/9c.
on Disney Jr. at 6pm/5c.
on Disney Jr. at 9:30pm/8:30c.

then again on Easter Sunday, March 27:
on Disney Channel at 8am/7c.
on Disney Channel at 11am/10c.
on Disney Jr. at 12pm/11c.
on Disney Jr. at 8pm/7c.

There's also the all New Easter themed cartoon...
Kate and Mim-Mim: "Mim-Mim's Eggscellent Easter"

See it this Weekend on Disney Jr.

March 25th at 7pm, 10pm, and 1:30 am
March 26th at 3:40pm, and 1:30 am
March 27th at 5:30pm

There are also several adorable Easter themed Max and Ruby Cartoons airing this Easter weekend on Nick Jr.

You may also find Religious Easter Cartoons on TBN on Saturday Morning, March 26th.

I pray you all have a very Blessed, Holy, Joyous...
Happy Easter!

I am the resurrection, and the life:

John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.

John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
