Special Delivery! "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" airs Thursday nights on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries! #POstables SEE HERE:

Dear POstables,
Every Thursday night - just before Christmas movies air at 9pm/8c. on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, you can see an encore airing of your favorite "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" movies at 7pm/6c.! Get caught up in the mystery of solving lost letters with Oliver (Eric Mabius), Shane (Kristin Booth), Rita (Crystal Lowe) and Norman (Geoff Gustafson)!

Storyline via Hallmark: The POstables' investigation leads them to a public figure who could be brought down by the contents of a damaged letter; Oliver, Shane, Norman and Rita are personally challenged in the aftermath of Valentine's Day. Movie 6 of 12.

Storyline via Hallmark: In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans handyman and blues singer-songwriter, Gabe Recolte was left homeless before he had the chance to express his love for club owner Hattie. Movie 9 of 12

Storyline via Hallmark: When The POstables discover an antique vase with a letter inside, they trace the package to three little girls who attempted to sell the vase 18 years ago in order to save their family farm. Movie 10 of 12.

Storyline via Hallmark: The POstables take a road trip in an old Winnebago in order to track down a small boy who they fear may have been kidnapped. Movie 11 of 12.

Storyline via Hallmark: When plans for Rita and Norman’s long-awaited wedding begins falling apart days before their nuptials, their challenges inspire changes that make their wedding more meaningful. Meanwhile, Shane convinces Oliver that the team should urgently focus on finding clues to deliver a package containing a wedding dress. Movie 12 of 12.

Trying to figure out where a lost letter belongs is certainly intriguing, but for many of us devoted POstables, it's the element of faith woven into each story that draws us back each time to these inspiring series. I hope you will tune in on Thursday nights and be uplifted by "Signed, Sealed, Delivered's" hopeful message.
Sincerely your friend, Net

Still have CHRISTMAS on Your Mind? See Andrew Walker in the Hallmark Channel Premiere of "Christmas on My Mind" TONIGHT!

In case you haven't heard, the Hallmark Channel has extended their Christmas in July Movies to August 1st!

Tonight they are premiering for the first time on the Hallmark Channel, the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie...

Storyline via Hallmark: A bump on the head, an unexplained wedding dress and temporary short-term amnesia lead Lucy Lovett on a search for the truth about her breakup with longtime sweetheart Zach Callahan. She returns to Bedford Harbor, Maine for the town’s Christmas celebration and rediscovers the woman she used to be, what matters most, and that a Christmas miracle can bring back love thought to be lost forever.

This family friendly Christmas movie is a sweet rom-com. Andrew Walker is, as always, a joy to watch! "Snowed Inn Christmas" and "Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow" are still my 2 favorite Andrew Walker Christmas movies, but this one is fun, too!

Hope you enjoy this premiere of "Christmas on My Mind" on the Hallmark Channel!

Be sure to look for more Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie premieres coming up on the Hallmark Channel this week in the Christmas Movie Schedule!

Dear Friends, Here we come to another weekend. Like many of you I've been watching the latest news on TV as coronavirus numbers go up and down. I keep praying cases will decrease so life will able to return to some normalcy. I wear my face mask when I'm in a public place - to protect myself, my family and those around me, but I sure miss smiling at people and seeing their expression back. I hope when things are normal again - we won't lose that friendliness.

Again, I want to thank all of you for your prayers for those in my family who have the virus. I hear they are getting better each day, which is, of course, a great blessing! My heart and prayers go out to those who lost loved ones through all of this. I cannot imagine.

I also want to share that I am fully aware of the latest news coming out with Hallmark and their desire to have more inclusivity with their movies. I know many of you here share my concern on their willingness to produce movies that include same sex couples. This is definitely not something I support according to my Christian faith and beliefs. (I spoke more in depth about this - here.) I've been talking this over with my family, pouring out my heart, and for now, I'm taking it one day at a time here at *It's a Wonderful Movie.* I'm disheartened over their decision, but I want to be here for all of my dear IAWM friends. I will continue to stand on God's word and share which movies are family friendly and which movies include content of concern so you and your family can decide what is best for you. If I personally see any objectionable content I will be changing the channel, and I hope many of you will join me.

As I've shared in the past, each of us has to make the decision for ourselves – on how we’ll respond and what we will watch. It has always been my goal to only share family-friendly programming here at It's a Wonderful Movie, and I will do my best to be even more careful and cautious with the programming I share here in the future. However, if I haven’t pre-screened a movie, it’s sometimes difficult to know. That’s why I’m also truly grateful for those of you – who take the time to share your reviews. Your support and kindness at this time has been such an encouragement to me.

Thank you for being understanding. I hope you all have a nice weekend!

God’s Blessings to you all… Net

give you peace at all times

Starring Elizabeth Henstridge and Ryan Paevey

Storyline via Hallmark: With Christmas approaching in New York City, Jessica, an archival historian enmeshed in a declining romantic relationship, is hired to create an exhibition honoring the history of Christmas at The Plaza Hotel. There, she meets Nick, a handsome decorator who’s been commissioned to deck out the iconic landmark. When they’re paired together to prepare the exhibition, they wind up enjoying a host of holiday traditions together and find themselves falling for each other. Tensions soon rise as Jessica must figure out her romantic priorities and decide with whom she’ll ultimately spend Christmas at The Plaza.

Starring Tricia Helfer and Eric Mabius

Storyline via Hallmark: As mayors of neighboring New Hampshire towns, longtime rivals Liam and Sarah are determined to best each other on their way to leading their hamlets to victory in the annual statewide “Christmas Spirit Competition.” When both towns unexpectedly advance to the contest’s final round, the mayors decide their best hope lies in working with, rather than against, each other. As they collaborate on a celebration showing what Christmas means to their communities, they discover their own holiday miracle: love.

Starring Merritt Patterson and Jon Cor

Storyline via Hallmark: A photographer whose career is on the fast track yet whose personal life lacks the fulfillment she seeks, finds romance with an unlikely candidate while visiting her grandmother in Bainbridge Island, Washington over the Christmas holiday season.

It's great to see these new Christmas DVD releases from 2019; I'm hopeful we'll see many more!

I would tell you my favorite picks, but I love them ALL!

However, ...if I had to give the edge to just ONE, it would definitely be "A Christmas Love Story!" I am such a lover of music and singing, especially at Christmastime, so this movie has everything I love best! ♪ Plus, Kristin Chenoweth and Scott Wolf are too cute together!
