๐ŸŽ„ Three *Purr*fect CHRISTMAS MOVIE TREATS from Hallmark this Week... the Cat's Out of the Bag! ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿพ DE*TAILS* HERE:

You'll definitely want to *paws* (pause) this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night for Christmas on Hallmark!

Here are the CHRISTMAS MOVIES you can look forward to seeing this week on ALL THREE HALLMARK NETWORKS...


Hallmark Drama's
"Home for the Holidays"
classic Christmas movie presentation is...
"Angel of Christmas"
on Wednesday, January 29th at 9pm/8c..

image: Hallmark Crown Media

Storyline via Hallmark: Susan is a newspaper staffer who decides to generate some Christmas spirit by writing an article about her family’s storied 100-year-old, hand-carved, heirloom Christmas angel. This leads her to accidentally meet Brady, a cute, upbeat artist who insists that he and Susan become fast friends (at least). It turns out that this angel also has the spiritual power to bring people together – as it seems to be doing with Susan and Brady. What’s behind this enchanted ornament? As time moves on, more about this captivating artifact is revealed.


Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
"Miracles of Christmas"
classic Christmas movie presentation is
"Holiday Hearts"
on Thursday, January 30th at 9pm/8c.

image: Hallmark Crown Media

Storyline via Hallmark: While planning an annual Christmas party, Peyton is forced together with Ben to care for a friend's daughter. While finding their Christmas spirit, will there be some romance along the way?


Hallmark Channel's
"Countdown to Christmas"
classic Christmas movie presentation is
"The Nine Lives of Christmas"
on Friday, January 31st at 10pm/9c.

image: Hallmark Crown Media

Storyline via Hallmark: Fireman Zachary Stone (Routh) is a confirmed bachelor who doesn’t believe in love or commitment. When a stray, tabby cat named Ambrose shows up at his door, Zachary takes him in and slowly starts to see that a little companionship might not be so bad after all. Zachary’s commitment to solitude is further challenged when he meets Marilee (Sustad), an animal lover and veterinary student who teaches Zachary how to care for his new feline roommate. Chemistry immediately develops between the two, but Marilee has vowed not to date until she graduates and Zachary is not ready to jeopardize his independence, though he senses Marilee is special.

With Christmas rapidly approaching, Marilee’s sister Jaclyn (Bennett) convinces her to add romance to her nose-to-the-grindstone life of work and school, while fire chief Sam (Harrison) encourages Zachary to understand the importance of love, marriage and having someone special with whom to share the holidays. When Zachary’s model girlfriend Blair (Hobbs) pressures him to get rid of Ambrose and has Marilee fired from her job at a pet supply store that her father owns, Zachary sees the light, realizing he is in love with Marilee and that life is better if shared with someone special.


Once again, I hope you all enjoy watching Christmas this week!

"The Nine Lives of Christmas" is *ONE* of my absolute favorites! Is it *ONE* of your favorites, too? As Zachary asks Marilee, how do you know it's THE ONE? Well, you just know... right? I've loved this movie, like many of you, since the very first time I ever watched it, and yet each time it replays, I get caught up in watching it again, as if I've never seen it. And... I know it was one of those movies that my sweet Aunt, who just passed away last week and went to be with Jesus, loved too! So... I may watch this Christmas movie this week with a smile and a tear or two.

I often say, that is the most beautiful thing about Hallmark movies... not only are the films meaningful and a joy to watch, but they often hold warm, wonderful memories of our lives. I hope you'll enjoy watching, too, and make some special new memories!

Get ready to Fall in Love this February with Movies on UPtv!

UPtv, the television home for uplifting entertainment, will be airing delightful romantic comedies this February - with a cable movie premiere every Sunday night!

The February, 2020 UPtv Premiere Movies include:

Mr. Write - Sunday, February 2 at 7 p.m. ET

Storyline: When editor Dori meets her idol, romantic novelist Michael, she’s crushed to learn he doesn’t really believe in true love. But when Dori’s own romance falls apart, it's Michael who works to renew her belief in love.

But Dori’s dream job becomes her nightmare as she realizes Michael isn’t everything she imagined. Dori breaks the news to Michael that the executives think he’s an ill-mannered, washed up novelist and want to terminate his contract. Not wanting to be dropped from Heartstrings Press, Michael agrees to work with Dori for 30 days. While Dori wrestles with Michael’s languorous behavior she’s also in the midst of planning her wedding to her fiancรฉ, Philip (Preston Vanderslice). However, things go awry for Dori when work becomes an obstacle in her relationship. Dori must learn what true love really means before it’s too late.

Stars: Charlotte Sullivan, Corey Sevier, Christie Laing, Colin Lawrence, Brittney Wilson

(*Caution: This movie includes a fortune telling manicurist, who predicts Katherine's future. I think the character is supposed to be cute and funny... however, I personally don't believe in psychics; therefore, I wanted to make all of you aware of this storyline. The Bible strongly condemns spiritism, mediums, the occult, and psychics - Deuteronomy 18:10-13)

Stars: Brant Daugherty, Larisa Oleynik, Shaun Sipos, Beverly D'Angelo, Elliot Gould

Please Note: These four movie titles may be familiar to those of you who have the station PixL, since they originally premiered there; however, if you don't have that channel, then you're sure to enjoy these films when they have their cable movie premiere on UPtv this February!

Several of the movies above either star or co-star actors and actresses you may already be familiar with, including: Corey Sevier ("Northern Lights of Christmas"), Katrina Bowden ("Love on the Slopes"), Andrea Brooks ("When Calls the Heart"), Andrew Francis ("Chesapeake Shores"), Ryan Kennedy ("Marrying Mr. Darcy"), and Brant Daugherty ("Mingle All the Way," "A Christmas Movie Christmas").

Look for the first movie in February - Sunday, February 2nd at 7pm/6c. and additional cable movie premieres to follow every Sunday night!

๐Ÿ’ฎ JUST MY TYPE ๐Ÿ’ฎ a New Spring Fever Hallmark Channel Movie Starring Bethany Joy Lenz and Brett Dalton! #SpringFever @hallmarkchannel MORE DETAILS:

STUDIO CITY, CA – January 21, 2020 – Bethany Joy Lenz (“One Tree Hill,” “Guiding Light”) and Brett Dalton (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,”) star together in “Just my Type” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, March 28, (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Spring Fever” programming event.

Credit: ©2020 Crown Media United States LLC/Photographer: Eike Schroter

Pop culture writer and aspiring novelist Vanessa Mills (Lenz) escapes run-ins with her ex by retreating to a quaint B&B in rural Washington. A chance meeting with the illustrious, elusive and reclusive author – and local resident – Martin Clayborne (Dalton) has Vanessa star-struck and determined to land an exclusive interview. With a big promotion on the line, a persistent Vanessa creates reasons to see Martin, who eventually becomes intrigued enough with her honest offer to let him finally tell his side of the story to his devoted fans. A spark ignites between them as they spend more time together during the interviews, but it’s clear they are more than literally worlds apart and that Vanessa has put her own aspirations, dreams and romantic life aside. It’s when Vanessa is back home in Portland and a mysterious gift arrives from Martin that she makes a surprise decision, leading her to assertively take her own advice and “go boldly in the direction of your dreams and live the life you imagine.”

ICYMI: CHRISTMAS MOVIE NEWS on "Angel Falls" Sequel and a Jane Austen themed Movie!

image: Hallmark Crown Media

Last week news was released on two upcoming Christmas movies at Deadline.com - by New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz.

The first Christmas movie announced was: "Christmas in Angel Falls 3," starring Rachel Boston and Paul Greene, who will be reprising their same roles from the first "Christmas in Angel Falls" film, which premiered on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in 2017. According to the article, this sequel "will continue the story of an angel who falls in love with a mortal and gives up her wings."

The second Christmas movie mentioned was: "Christmas at Mansfield Park." No news, yet, on who will star, however we do know this movie will be an adaptation from Jane Austen's novel, "Mansfield Park." I simply adore Jane Austen's books and authentic movie portrayals, and I have high hopes for this one, as well. Austen's "Mansfield Park" has a bit of intrigue and mystery to it; I certainly hope this Christmas movie will too!

Have a Wonderful Day, Everyone...

A Special Gift + INSP's 2020 TV SCHEDULE and NEW EPISODES of THE COWBOY WAY - Coming in February!

I want to begin this post by saying a very special *Thank You* to my dear friends at INSP for the lovely gift they sent me at Christmastime! This sweet cocoa mug, with marshmallow shaped snowflake (so adorable!), warmed my heart the instant I received it!

Thank you ALL at INSP for this delightful, delicious gift! You certainly added an extra dash of sweetness to my Holiday Season and brightened my day!


Now... dear friends, kick off our boots while I share the latest INSP news...

Since the beginning of January, 2020 - INSP has changed around their schedule a bit. The Waltons are gone, but not for long, as they'll be back in March!

However, all the classic westerns you remember, from Daniel Boone to The Big Valley, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and lots more are on INSP's schedule - from morning's first dawn, high noon, and all through the dark of night!

Plus, "The Cowboy Way" returns with Season SIX and all new episodes this February!

Here are all the details straight-shootin' from INSP...



Buck Up
for the Season 6 Premiere
of INSP’s Award-winning
Original Series
The Cowboy Way
on Wednesday, February 5th at 8:00PM ET

WHO: Bubba Thompson, Cody Harris and Booger Brown

WHAT: Season premiere of The Cowboy Way

WHEN: Wednesday, February 5th at 8PM ET

WHERE: INSP - available on DIRECTV (channel 364); Dish (channel 259); AT&T U-Verse (channel 564); fios√ by Verizon (channel 286). To find out where to watch in your area, click here.

Big changes are coming for the cowboys and their families in season 6 of INSP’s original series, The Cowboy Way. While Bubba, Booger, and Cody have built a strong friendship and success as a company, the cowboys’ day-to-day work schedule and life on the road is taking its toll. With a desire to be home more as their families start to grow, they find their business at a crossroads.

Bubba, Booger, and Cody start exploring new ways to expand the company, and each is determined to do it on their own terms. Tensions start to rise as they struggle to see eye-to-eye about what their next move should be. Things get even more complicated when each cowboy is presented with a dream opportunity - leaving them to question if investing in their partnership is what is best - for themselves and their friendship. As they decide the fate of their future, the cowboys will have to make hard decisions that will put their friendship to the test.


(- End of Press Release -)

A little more on each Cowboy- from INSP:

Bubba Thompson is a rancher and skilled carpenter. He and wife, Kaley have a fun-loving relationship, often laced with good-humored “bets.” They have a daughter, Andie.

Retired pro-rodeo, calf-roping champ, Cody Harris produces popular rodeos. As he works at life on the other side of the arena fence, he is supported by his wife, Misty. They are devoted to each other, often sharing poignant moments and coming together to make those big life decisions. They have a young son, Carter.

Chris “Booger” Brown is an expert cattleman and a renowned horse and dog trainer. When it comes to joking around, he can give as good as he gets, but should a friend or neighbor need his help, the jokes take a back seat, and he’s ready to help in an instant. He is married to Jaclyn, a pharmacist, and is dad—and cowboy mentor—to young son, Matthew.

Together the cowboys own Faith Cattle Company. In each episode, you’ll share in Bubba’s, Cody’s and Booger’s emotional stories—the business and life challenges, the accomplishments, the joyful events, the unconditional support, the adventures, and lots of laughs.


If you want to catch up or binge watch previous episodes of The Cowboy Way, you can watch Seasons 1 through 5 with Amazon Prime - CLICK HERE!


Hope you enjoyed this news today from INSP!

Update on my Precious Aunt and a Thoughtful Message from Hallmark Actor, Paul Greene...

Thank you all for your continued prayers for my precious Aunt. I feel the love and support of this dear "It's a Wonderful Movie" family, which means the world to me.

Each day she is a miracle, defying the odds the doctors have set before us. She fell on Friday and hit her head causing a brain bleed.

My aunt lives alone, but she has children, grandchildren, and siblings who check in on her, from time to time. However, since this occurred early in the day and many of them were at work, it could have been many, many hours before she was discovered. But the Good Lord had another plan. On Fridays, my aunt drives a neighbor/church friend to get her hair done, go shopping, out to eat, and pick up groceries, etc. Well, when my aunt didn't show up at their scheduled time, her friend became worried. She thankfully called their pastor and they went to check.

From there, my aunt was taken to the hospital, where we learned there was bleeding in her brain. She had stopped breathing in the ambulance and was put on a ventilator. The doctors said the bleeding was in the middle of the brain and there was nothing they could do surgically. They didn't give us much hope, at that point, but we didn't give up, we were all still interceding for her healing. I'm so grateful for each and everyone who said a prayer, too.

On Saturday, the doctors advised my cousins to remove their Mother from the ventilator, informing them she would most likely only live 10 minutes after doing so. The family all gathered around her singing praise songs and hymns. 10 minutes passed... 20... 30... and so on... and now nearly 48 hours have passed, and she is still breathing on her own- Praise God!!!

She looks comfortable as she is resting and I know this time is healing. Each step, each day has been a miracle, thus far, and I know there are many steps to go...

My family and I keep repeating the same scripture- that has given us great peace throughout this difficult time... "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." ~Matthew 19:26 (NKJV)

When all of this first happened, I recalled right away that this similar event happened to Paul Greene's mother. (Paul Greene of "When Calls the Heart") I remembered praying for her and Paul when it occurred, and being so happy, rejoicing with their family when she recovered. Knowing Paul's mother was able to overcome this, gave me and my family such great hope. My Momma suggested reaching out to him and his Mother for prayer, so I sent a prayer request through my friend Ruth Hill, who I knew could get the message to Paul. Ruth responded right away and let me know she would be praying, along with Paul and his mother (a prayer warrior, as Ruth called her), with all of us. And Paul, so graciously and giving, sent the most beautiful, encouraging voice message to my Sister through Instagram, to play for my Aunt. Paul's reassuring, calming voice was telling my Aunt she could get through this, many people are praying for her; it is possible. It was such a precious moment when we played that message for her in the hospital; everyone became silent all at once and gathered around to listen. I just know if my Aunt could've responded at that moment, she would've been overwhelmed and elated by Paul's sweet message. She just loves "When Calls the Heart" and all the Hallmark movies. From now on, Paul will always have a special place in my families' heart. And as we all listened intently to Paul's message, who plays a physician on "When Calls the Heart," it was a comfort knowing our hope is in The Great Physician.

My aunt's condition is the same today, but we are beyond grateful she continues to breath on her own. Family stays by her side 24/7, and she is never alone. And we know The Lord has been by her side every moment along the way.

Thank you all for your continued prayers. If you would like to add her name to your prayer list, her first name is Margaret.

God Bless You All, Net

I hope you all have a nice weekend.

For those of you who are prayer warriors, I must ask you to be in prayer for my dear Aunt. She fell on Friday morning and was found unconscious in her home. Her brain has been bleeding, and the family is all around her. We're praying so hard that she will wake up.

Like many of you, my precious Aunt loves the Hallmark Channel, all the new movies, classics, and "When Calls the Heart." I just love talking about all of them with her. She is one of those people who is bubbly and fun, always a joy to be around. Please say a prayer for her... my family is heartbroken, but keeping the faith.

Take care dear friends, Net


"LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress."

In honor of that milestone, Crown Media Family Networks is launching its first ever national holiday, ADOPTION EVER AFTER DAY, on Sunday, February 16, 2020. The annual holiday will serve as a day to encourage shelter-pet adoption as well as a day of service to America’s neighborhood shelters.

Storyline via Hallmark: Julia Palmer (Cole) is a professional matchmaker who is trying to convince Daniel (Paevey), the handsome newcomer to town known as “Mr. Stay Single,” to sign up for their matchmaking services. Landing him as a client would be a big feather in her cap and her chance to take the reins at the firm. While working with Daniel, who reluctantly agrees to be matched, Julia begins to develop feelings for him. Because he’s a client, however, she must stay professional and keep her feelings to herself while she helps him search for love. When she finds out that hers is the only heart he’s after, she must decide if she’s finally met her match.

A Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere
Saturday, February 15, 9 p.m. ET/PT
Starring: Erin Cahill, Brendan Penny

Storyline via Hallmark: Bakery owner Kelly (Cahill) hasn’t thought about love since Andrew (Penny) ended their engagement for culinary school in Paris. Now he’s back, and so is their chemistry. Unfortunately, Kelly’s still hurt and won’t see Andrew before he leaves. But little does she know that when she’s selected as a contestant on the Valentine’s Day Bake-Off, Andrew is as well. In fact, none of the contestants will meet until the final show when only two are left. Win or lose, it’ll be sad when Andrew leaves for Paris since he and Kelly have finally discovered the secret ingredient of why he should stay – love.

Based on The Secret Ingredient by USA Today Bestselling author Nancy Naigle, it is the first-ever movie adaptation of a Hallmark Publishing original novel.

The audience instantly loves their charisma and, despite their initial dislike for one another, a romantic flame ignites. But when Terrie’s old boyfriend asks David to help him win Terrie back, explaining he got cold feet when she brought up marriage, David takes a step back, afraid Terrie may have already sold her heart.
