DVD Giveaway: A Telling Silence

010956 DVD Giveaway: A Telling Silence I never quite expect a third movie to be as touching as the first, yet When Calls the Heart: A Telling Science managed to reach out and pull heart strings as well as its predecessors.  Each of the When Calls the Heart movies have somehow been able to reach deep within and I look forward to seeing what Michael Landon, JR does next.  They manage to tell this very touching story without anything inappropriate and without being predictable.  A movie that has you wanting to yell at the characters on the screen is, in my book, always a winner.

Since I was a little girl I have loved Michael Landon JR as an actor.  I am greatly enjoying his work as a director as well!  Movies with true content are rare these days and I’m glad to say I’m starting to see a few more of them!  So many movies these days are filled with trash or just don’t have a good story, it is wonderful to say that this one isn’t plagued with that issue!  I hope you’ll take the time to see it, you won’t regret it!

My Thoughtsanswered-300x169 The War Room: In Theaters August 28

Here’s the deal: this is a really good movie.  It’s not predictable like so many others and the message is a real and true reminder.  You won’t regret seeing this film.  It has touching moments as well as moments of humor.  While it does set out to give you a reminder, you’ll be entertained and pleased you spent your time and money.  The movie makes for great conversation for a date night, a girls night, guys night, or a group event.  You won’t regret spending you evening watching this film.  Make plans to see the premiere August 28th, the message you are given from the movie can change your life if you choose to implement it.

Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.
