I hope you all have a beautiful weekend... filled with sunshine and blue skies! We are having a bit of a drought here in the Mid-west, though, so we would be grateful for some cloudy skies and rain. Our fields look good right now, but they are needing moisture. Please pray rain comes our way. What's your weather like in your area?

As I stare at the calendar here at my desk (yes, I'm old school... I keep a real paper calendar), I can hardly believe this is the last weekend in June. I'm planning to enjoy some of the movies airing this weekend (especially Christmas!) and spend some quality special time with my family and soak up every bit of Summer that I possibly can. Do you have any special plans this weekend or movies you hope to see (old or new)?

Please note: I haven't pre-screened the new movies listed above. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in comments below. Thank you!

UPDATE: I have learned there will be a same-sex relationship in the upcoming Christmas in July movie, Campfire Christmas. Due to my own personal faith and beliefs, I will not be promoting this film. I wanted to be certain you all were aware.

Keep cool, everyone, in this Summer heat...
Blessings to you all! Net

πŸŽ„Jen Lilley to host GAC Family's 'Great American Christmas in July' Event!πŸŽ„ See Here:

GAC Family is making the first day of Summer 
- even merrier and brighter!!!

Exciting news today from GAC Family... Jen Lilley (“Royally Wrapped for Christmas,” “USS Christmas”) will be hosting their Christmas in July movie marathon event, which airs July 2nd - July 4th! And if that wasn't special enough, GAC Family will be giving us sneak peeks of their upcoming 2022 Christmas movies!

Thus far, GAC Family has only officially announced two holiday films, "Catering Christmas," starring Merritt Patterson and Daniel Lissing, and "The Christmas Farm," starring Jill Wagner and Cameron Mathison. I'm excited to see if they may announce others... possibly with Danica McKellar, Trevor Donovan, Candace Cameron Bure, Susie Abromiet, Jessica Lowndes, and of course, Jen Lilley! (These actors all have contracts with the network.) I think it's a good possibility we might hear something about Jen Lilley's new Christmas movie, especially with her hosting the event and all!

See even more details in GAC Family's press release below...




24/7 Christmas Movie Event Kicks Off July 2

NEW YORK, NY – June 21, 2022 – GAC Family, America’s family-friendly destination for holiday movies and seasonal rom coms, today announced Jen Lilley (“Royally Wrapped for Christmas,” “Days of Our Lives”) is set to host the network’s first-ever Great American Christmas in July programming event, which kicks off July 2 and features 24/7 Christmas movies throughout Independence Day weekend. Fans of holiday romantic comedies will be able to celebrate Christmas early with encore presentations of GAC Family’s original Christmas movies, as well as first look previews of all-new holiday films planned for Great American Christmas 2022.

Programming highlights for Great American Christmas in July include encores of Christmas Time Is Here, The Great Christmas Switch, A Christmas Star, Jingle Bell Princess, A Kindhearted Christmas, A Christmas Miracle for Daisy, Royally Wrapped for Christmas, Joy for Christmas, A Lot Like Christmas, Angel Falls Christmas, and Much Ado About Christmas. The programming event also includes holiday movie fan-favorites, Debbie Macomber’s Mrs. Miracle, Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle, A Cinderella Christmas and A Match Made at Christmas.

GAC Family previously announced that Great American Christmas, the network’s holiday programming franchise, will return October 28 with an all-new slate of original Christmas movies.

GAC Media, LLC is home to Great American Channels: GAC Family: Stories Well Told and GAC Living: Life Well Lived. As the flagship service, GAC Family features family-friendly series, original holiday movies and seasonal romcoms that celebrate faith, family and country. GAC Living is the unscripted companion to GAC Family that celebrates Great American family-friendly traditions every day and every season. GAC Media, LLC was established in June 2021 by Bill Abbott and a group of US-based family offices.

My Take:

I'm delighted to see GAC has acquired the rights to Debbie Macomber’s two original "Mrs. Miracle" movies starring the incredible Doris Roberts ("Everybody Loves Raymond")! I absolutely love those two films; it will be truly wonderful to see them both air on TV again! In the words, of Mrs. Miracle... they're "off the hook!"

Also, announced in the press release, is the premiere of "A Match Made at Christmas" on GAC Family! This movie was released in 2021 via streaming sources. I haven't had the chance to watch it, yet, myself; however, we received a great review of this movie from Amy Lama, who is a loyal follower and friend here at 'It's a Wonderful Movie'. I've included Amy's review of "A Match Made at Christmas" below and a synopsis of the film.

"A Match Made at Christmas" synopsis:
"Holly's lifelong dream was to fall in love with the perfect guy, so when she meets skeptical, Christmas-hater, Chris, she's not interested. That doesn't stop Great Aunt Lillian (who's never wrong) from "pairing" them together in front of a crowd. Real feelings start to emerge for both Chris and Holly as their friends and family find ways to throw them together, but Holly's mistakes and Chris' stubbornness drive a wedge that seems too overwhelming to overcome. But their time together will teach both Chris and Holly lessons about honesty, family, and love."

Amy's review of "A Match Made at Christmas":
πŸŽ„"I just wanted to let you all know about a movie called “A Match Made at Christmas” streaming on Amazon Prime and Pure Flix. I am personally acquainted with the filmmakers and a lot of the people who were extras in the film, and my brother even has a mention in the credits because he was an investor for the movie! It’s rated 13+ on Amazon, probably because the “drama” in the movie makes it more geared to teenagers and adults, and there is also a bachelorette party scene at a bar (nothing too wild). The filmmakers are Christians, so there is nothing of concern as far as suggestive content and language (unless you count a single use of the word "crap"). The story is more of a drama than a comedy and has some depth and realism to it. It centers around a young woman whose brother is marrying her best friend, her relationship with said best friend, and her rocky relationship with her brother's best man. The leading woman and the woman who plays her best friend are very good. The leading man I thought was less good, but my mom and I both liked him better on a second viewing. There are some great scenes, and I enjoyed the movie a lot. ~Amy Lama

(Thank you, again, Amy... for giving us this wonderful review!)

I've also learned that GAC Family will air the movie "Christmas in Carolina," which was first released in 2020. It is rated PG and available on DVD at Amazon.

"Christmas in Carolina" synopsis:
After losing her parents in a car accident, Elle (Moore) a career driven investment banker has given up on love and Christmas until she meets Wesley (Saxon) a former NBA player and CEO of a small marketing firm. Wesley invites Elle to his hometown in South Carolina, with hesitation she accepts and is thrown for a loop where she falls in love and finds the spirit of Christmas again.

πŸŽ„'Great American Christmas in July' on GAC FamilyπŸŽ„ 
is certain to be a fun, exciting movie event!

May your day be Merry & Bright!🌟

Happy first day of Summer, everyone!
Blessings, Net

🌼🌴Aloha! It's Official: Lacey Chabert to Star in Hallmark Movie ‘Groundswell’ - filmed in Hawaii🌴🌺

Deadline made this Hallmark movie announcement today: "EXCLUSIVE: Lacey Chabert (Christmas at Castle Heart) and Ektor Rivera (Sugar Plum Twist) are set to lead the Hallmark film Groundswell. The project is set to premiere on August 21 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Groundswell is an adaptation of Katie Lee Biegel’s debut novel. Beigel serves as executive producer on the project and will make a cameo appearance.

In Groundswell, on the heels of a personal and professional setback, Atlanta chef Emma (Chabert) travels to Hawaii where she meets Ben (Rivera), a handsome, reclusive surf instructor whose lessons help her to regain her footing."

My Quick Take:

Finally, this movie is officially announced by Hallmark today, although, many of us have known about it for some time now. Lacey Chabert shared the above image on her Instagram on their 8th day of filming in Hawaii.

Over the years... Lacey has starred in many destination type movies on Hallmark - from Italy ("Christmas in Rome") to Romania ("A Royal Christmas") to Africa ("Love on Safari")! Hope this one is just as good as all of those! What is your favorite Lacey Chabert destination movie, thus far? Mine would have to be "Love, Romance, and Chocolate" with Will Kemp, which was filmed in Belgium.

Happy movie watching! Net πŸŒΊ

Father themed DVDs:


What I'm planning to catch on TV this weekend...

I'm hoping to watch some of the "Leave it to Beaver" marathon on FETV on Sunday evening, 7pm-10pm. They are calling it "A Very Ward Father's Day Marathon." I've always enjoyed watching the reruns of this series. It's refreshing to see a show with honest and decent children, who still get in trouble and make mistakes, but ultimately, respect their father and mother.

I'm also looking forward to seeing the new "Duck Family Adventure!" My family and I always loved watching "Duck Dynasty" together; we would laugh so hard at all of their hilarious antics. Plus, it was always beautiful to see the Robertson family come together at the end of every episode for a family meal around the long dinner table and pray before eating. And while I know this won't be exactly the same... with Uncle Si, it still has to be a whole lot of fun! Plus, I'm hoping there will be elements of faith along the way, as well.

As for the new movies... I'm looking forward to seeing the premiere of A Romance Wedding on UPtv! First, I like the actress who plays the lead, Morgan Kohan. She's wonderful as Lillian in the When Hope Calls series. Plus, Morgan and her opposite in this, Drew Nelson, are a real-life couple! And to top it all off... we have a wonderful review from Maria, who is a loyal follower and reviewer here at It's a Wonderful Movie! Here is Maria's review:

πŸ’ "I found a way to watch 'A Romance Wedding' early, and I really enjoyed it! And I'm proud to say that it's also clean. :) I'm sure you'll all enjoy it when it airs." –Maria (Thank you so much, Maria, for sharing this with us!)

The other new movie airing this weekend is Moriah's Lighthouse on the Hallmark Channel. I haven't pre-screened this movie, but here is an extra detail you may want to know: actor Paul Campbell (Surprised by Love, A Godwink Christmas, etc...) and Terrence Cunningham (director of Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Enchanted Christmas, etc...) created the script for this movie, based on the book by Serena B. Miller. You may be familiar with Miller's other books-to-movies: An Uncommon Grace and Love Finds You in Sugarcreek.

Now, like I said... I don't know if the movie Moriah's Lighthouse will be a good one, yet, but I do like the theme of lighthouses for Father's Day weekend. When I think of lighthouses, I think of strength and security; they are steady and dependable, a guide lighting the way home. That's the most important role of fathers - guiding and loving their children, showing them the way and leading them through the journey of life.

I pray all of you fathers and grandfathers out there have a very Happy Father's Day! I'll be enjoying this special time with my family, showering my precious, hardworking Daddy and all of the fathers in our family with lots of love, and remembering my dear Pa-Pa and Grandpa in heaven.

How blessed we all are to have a heavenly Father - who loves us and calls us His children. He is always there when we call on His Name.

I hope you all have a nice, relaxing, peaceful weekend.

Blessings to You All! Net



"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” —which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."
~Ephesians 6:1-4

"As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;"
~Psalm 103:13

πŸ’— Hallmark Channel’s "When Calls the Heart" renewed for Season 10! πŸ’— #Hearties

Congratulations to all of the cast and crew! I'm overjoyed to share this news with all of you... "When Calls the Heart" will be returning to the Hallmark Channel with all new heartwarming stories with a Season 10!

ET exclusively revealed the news today, with statements from leading actors...

Erin Krakow, series star (Elizabeth Thornton) and executive producer: “I am thrilled that When Calls the Heart is coming back for a 10th season. With our amazing cast, crew, and talented writers, we can look forward to more adventures, laughs, tears, and stories of romance throughout the community of Hope Valley. We are so excited for all the viewers, especially the Hearties, to continue this journey with us!”

Chris McNally (actor, Lucas Bouchard) - "I'm feeling very grateful. I'm really happy. I'm very proud, excited to get to spend more time in Hope Valley with all of these people I really care about," Krakow said. "And it's just mind-blowing to think about a decade of When Calls the Heart. It's really pretty amazing. I'm really happy."

Chris also added, ""We're also moving into the 1920s and exploring a new decade -- the Roaring Twenties. And I think that that's another character element in itself that will be really fun to play with."

My Take:

I am so happy "When Calls the Heart" will be back on the Hallmark Channel with all new stories, as we look forward to Elizabeth and Lucas' wedding, the arrival of Rosemary and Lee's baby, and so many potential, fascinating adventures and mysteries in Hope Valley! I'm truly thrilled to know we will have more from this delightful family friendly series!

As Christmas approaches, Noelle (Candace Cameron Bure) is at a crossroads in her life when it seems that love, a connection with her father, and her dream career are out of reach. When she stays late at her job in a department store on a snowy Christmas Eve, she accidentally gets locked in after closing. She isn’t too concerned about the prospect of spending the night in the store… until a quirky woman appears out of nowhere in the shoe department and tells Noelle that she’s her guardian angel. Soon, Noelle finds herself revisiting Christmases past, present, and future as she must work with her new neighbor, a handsome, Christmas-loving firefighter, to plan the annual Christmas Charity Gala. Will visiting the holidays of yesterday and tomorrow help Noelle take new chances and discover the true spirit of Christmas? And in realizing that the only thing standing in her way of leading a fulfilling life is herself, will the love she has longed for all her life be the best surprise gift of all?

I just adore Candace Cameron Bure and Jean Smart ("Designing Women") in "A Shoe Addict's Christmas" together. Jean is absolutely phenomenal as the angel, Charlie, giving Candace's character, Noelle, advice on her future. As Charlie, Jean Smart is quick-witted, quirky, and a whole lot of fun to watch. She's a real scene-stealer!

While I love all of the fashion and shoes in the movie, what really touches my heart is the additional story in "A Shoe Addict's Christmas" with the cross necklace and how Noelle gradually rediscovers her faith again. I would love to see Candace do more Christmas movies on GAC Family that have elements of faith, like this one!

Happy Christmas in June, Everyone!
Blessings on your day, Net
