Celebrate Christmas in Hope Valley
Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Whether it’s in the fictional town of Hope Valley in the early 1900s or in our lives today, nothing is more profound than celebrating God’s most important gift to the world.
When God Calls the Heart at Christmas is about a celebration of faith, family, friends, and the most meaningful Yuletide traditions. Inspired by best-selling author Janette Oke and the Hallmark Channel original TV series When Calls the Heart, these twenty-five devotions not only explore God-moments from the series, but also commemorate favorite holiday recipes, stories, and traditions – many of them contributed by the Hearties, the beloved fans of the show.
Journey with us to Hope Valley as we focus on all the reasons for this most blessed season. As shepherds and angels learned on that holy night so long ago, when God calls the heart at Christmas, you can expect a celebration.
My thoughts on the book: If you’re a fan of the TV series When Calls the Heart, you’ll definitely enjoy reading this book. It encapsulates the mood and spirit of the show, although I would’ve loved a real Christmas novel with all the characters from the show (like one of those Christmas specials). Yet, it is still an interesting read filled with touching stories from Hearties fans and flashbacks to key episodes.
The book is mainly about devotions; faith being a major element of the show and the books it is based on. If you’re not a religious person, you can approach it as a self-help book. I thought it gave an interesting, genuine perspective on the true meaning of Christmas and life values in general. Besides, there are quite a few good recipe ideas for the holidays. You’ll definitely get something out of this multifaceted book. It is quite short, so it’ll be quick to read during the busy festive season.
A lovely gift to put under the tree!
🎄🎞To keep the magic going, why not watch one of the Christmas specials from When Calls the Heart? They’re filled with all things Christmassy. A truly indulgent moment best savoured with hot cocoa! 🎅☕
