When Calls the Heart Season Premier and Season 1 DVD collection Giveaway (ENDS 5/3)

OK, the season premier we have all been waiting for is HERE!
Tune into the Hallmark Channel this Saturday for the 2 hour special!
About the series:
The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West. “When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion. The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a turn of the century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.
The second season of When Calls the Heart is highly anticipated!  When we last saw Jack and Elizabeth, they had shared their first kiss.  Of course, things are still not set in stone, but their relationship has progressed beyond friendship, but they still remain proper and sweet to each other.  As this season begins, Elizabeth receives a telegram to return home to her mother who is ill.  Jack escorts her home and meets the family, but as Elizabeth fits right in to her former life, Jack does not.  Not only that, a former beau, Charles, shows up and starts to pay a great deal of attention to her.  Meanwhile, back in Coal Valley, a trial to clear Noah Stanton's name is underway.  The results will leave you astounded!  This 2 hour special is full of mystery, secrets, love triangles and new beginnings!  This season is one not to be missed!  Be sure to tune in to the premier on the Hallmark Channel this Saturday.

Missional Women- Free App!!

Missional Women

Have you ever wanted to learn more about how to impact your world for Christ?
What are resources that help you in that journey?

Recently, the Missional Women blog hosted by Laura Krokos launched a new FREE App that has many resources available that will help you in your mission to reach the world for Christ.

The app has a lot of different parts.  When you tap on Blog you will get a screen with these titles: Ministry, God's Word, Relationships, World and Life.  Under each of these topics are about 10 blog posts.  There is also an Audio Bible reading plan or just an online Bible.  There are resources for Discipleship along with a link to subscribe to the Ministry Resource Library, free wall paper and lockscreens, videos, free printables, discipleship material and how to start a relationship with God.

One of the parts of the app that I really like are the challenges.  There are two challenges: Prayer and Evangelism.  Each have 31 days of different prompts.  I started the Prayer challenge and was thanking God for being the Creator.  The Evangelism challenge has a lot of great spiritual conversation prompts. 

Here is an example of one of the videos that shows Laura sharing the barriers and how to break through them when sharing the Gospel. 
Be sure to check out the app store on your digital device to download this great resource for free!
I am excited to see how this ministry will help women to engage in the culture and make a deep impact for Christ!
