When Calls the Heart: Heart of the Family DVD Review

Just when you think that nothing could separate people who care for each other, think again.  Elizabeth returns to Hope Valley and takes care of a homestead while the father is away from his two children.  She doesn't seem to be able to handle all that the life offers, but at least Jack steps in to help out.  Also, now that Clara is now in Hope Valley, Abigail employs her at the cafĂ©.  Clara is asked to an ice cream social, but feels so shy and unsure that she refuses the invitation.  Then Charles Kensington comes to Hope Valley on business, but also to spend time with Elizabeth and Bill Avery gets involved with a counterfeit ring and becomes very mysterious in how he wants to handle it.  All of this and more happens in the latest release of When Calls the Heart.
I must say that I like all the different story lines and angles.  It's interesting to watch how the new characters connect with the old.  I still have a sweet spot for Jack and Elizabeth, but I think they are still trying to figure out what will work for them.  I'm interested in the all of the intrigue with Bill Avery and how his ex wife is involved.  But I guess I will have to wait for the next episode.  Until then, keep watching When Calls the Heart!

Find a Way DVD Review

A community is rocked when a superstar high school football player never wakes up one morning. His friends are wondering why this happened to such a promising young man.  The football coach whose son happened to be a good friend of the young man that died felt that his father favored the one who died more than his own son.  It was tragic to hear their conversations and even more when the son needed to decide which parent he should live with.  A young lady who knew the boy who passed tired to ignite the need in her family to see others for who they truly are and to be aware of the needs of others instead of focusing on themselves.  These two young people experienced pain and separation in the midst of a crisis in the community, but they eventually did find hope and peace.

This movie was full of regrets and hurts, but eventually as hearts were healed, relationships started to mend and true healing began.  This movie made me think about how I live my life and what I need to do daily to keep God first and give my family the best of me.  It was interesting to see how one person could affect a whole community.  Each person had to find a way to make sense of the situation and deal with the upheaval in their family.  This movie had a good message of hope in the midst of sorrow.
