I hope you find many delightful Christmas movies you are looking forward to seeing during this Christmas Season! Personally, I feel it is a blessing to see so many heartwarming stories and familiar faces on GAC Family!

Joyous Christmas Blessings to You!

God bless us, everyone! Net


  1. 12 is the perfect amount of Christmas movies for one channel. I’m most looking forward to A Kindhearted Christmas, A Christmas Miracle for Daisy, The Christmas Star and the When Hope Calls Christmas episodes.

  2. My Angel’s Christmas List

    Gabe is actually Guardian Angel whose works as barista & plays guitar & Allie is a singer & ER Doctor

  3. I really enjoyed the preview show. So many of these movies look good. I was hoping they would get the Home and Family show back together for a new show or the same show. Maybe that can still happen. There were a few surprises too some movies i didnt know about like the Cindy Busby and Maggie Lawson movies. Can't wait to watch these :)


  4. Hi Net! I’m so happy to see the return of When Hope Calls! Do you have any information on whether Marshall Williams will be returning as Sam this season? I haven’t found anything about it but that’s a storyline that probably won’t be resolved if he doesn’t.

    Thank you!

    1. Marshall Williams is in it for When Hope Calls Christmas: A Country Christmas

    2. Awesome! Thank you for the info!

  5. A Christmas Giveaway was an originally title for Joy for Christmas

  6. I'm looking forward to so many of these.


  7. We enjoyed the GAC Family Christmas Preview Special. Everyone in my household plans to watch all 12 GAC Family Christmas movies. I hope also The Home and Family Show finds a new home on GAC Family. Probably re-named but still the same fun show.

    1. Karen E J Klein, Same here! I plan to watch every single GAC Family Christmas movie. They all look appealing to me and so many actors we already know and love. Looks like they are getting a great start - and I hope many here will be supportive.

      I do wonder if a show like Home & Family would probably be on GAC Living, instead of GAC Family??? Unfortunately, we still don't have GAC Living on DirecTV, yet, but I hear it's being added to many of the other cable providers.

      Hopefully, it will come soon for us! I'm sure at GAC Media - they have lots of projects and ideas in-the-works! :)

    2. Yes, Directv doesn't carry GAC Living. (sad face)

  8. Trevor Donovan signs up GAC Deal for movies on GAC Family

    1. Yes, Trevor Donovan will star in and executive produce original films for GAC Family.

    2. Trevor Donovan has 2 Christmas movies: 1 for Hallmark & 1 for GAC

  9. Do you think GAC Family will do movies like Winterfest Movies, Romantic movies, Spring Fling Movies, Literary Movies, Fairytale Movies, June Weddings Movies, Summer Nights movies, Fall Harvest movies, Christmas movies, & New Year’s Eve Movies?

    Any National Day movies
    Like National Strawberry πŸ“ Day
    National Arbor Day

    Holiday movies
    4th of July
    Memorial Day
    Patriotic Day
    New Years Day
    New Year’s Eve

    1. I do think GAC Family will celebrate various holidays and most likely, highlight the various seasons. It's all so new for now - so we will have to wait and see! :)

  10. Did you see the scene on youtube with Abigail and Cody in Brookfield looking at the tree? I've missed her so much! You would think no time has passed since her last episode, except that Cody is not taller than her haha

  11. I watched both episodes of When Hope Calls, S2 E1&2. Is that the only Daniel Lissing involvement in the series as an apparition in Abigail's dream? Will he be a series regular? I hope so.
    It was so thoughtful of the orphans to ask "Santa" for a pony for the new orphan boy. Also how kind Donnie was to forgo the roadster he wanted to give the orphans what they really wanted.

  12. GAC Family will air most of their Christmas movies commercial-free (90 min. version) starting at 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.(CST) on Christmas Day.

    1. Namegirl, Thank you so much for sharing the times. Even though I already recorded all of GAC Family's movies, I'm happy to hear they are doing this! Have you seen the commercial with Jen Lilley announcing the Christmas day movies? She is always so bubbly and sweet!

  13. I have no idea what the GAC channel is but we are stuck with what we get on our cable. I have loved having the Hallmark channels...both of them and hope they play some of these movies. I wanted to see Lori M. again!

    1. ~Lavender Dreamer~ GAC Family premiered 12 new Christmas movies this year with many stars you would know from Hallmark. I haven't seen them all, yet, but I enjoyed all the ones I have seen very much.

      If you need help finding GAC Family, you could try contacting your cable provider or call GAC's toll-free hotline for more information: 1-855-701-2804.

      The channel really is wonderful - hope you're able to get it! :)

  14. Good morning Net

    That is awesome. Would u happen to know or can u find out through your contact at GAC whether they plan to release on DVD Angel Falls Christmas and The Great Christmas Switch

    1. No word, yet, on those titles being released on DVD. However, since 6 GAC titles have been released, I'm hoping that means we can expect more to come!

      See those DVD releases here:
