Let God DVD Review

This faith-based film  follows  the story of young housewife, Amelia, who heads west with her husband during the 19th century gold rush and is left alone without resources in the harsh wilderness when her husband is killed in a savage attack. Battling winter, hunger and the unknown, Amelia must take life into her own hands as she struggles with a loss of faith and battles for her survival.

I am one that loves movies about what would you do to survive when all odds are against you. Would you keep your faith, turn away from God, what would you do to survive? This movie is about a young couple who decided to travel to be part of the California Gold Rush and did not tell anyone including family. However, Amelia does tell her best friend even against her husband’s wishes. While the young couple are traveling something tragic happens Amelia’s husband is attacked and killed which leaves Amelia in the wilderness alone.

Zipadee-Zip Review


Babies are little miracles. We get to watch them slowly grow from little droolers, to toddlers, to children. It can be hard taking care of babies, there is a big number of things that they could need at any given time. Since babies cannot talk, it is often difficult to figure out what has got them upset, and an unhappy baby is an unhappy household. 

With so many potential things to upset our tiny ones, comfort should not have to be an issue. Luckily there is a great little product called the Zipadee-Zip, which allows comfort to come automatically so that we can focus on all of the other things that cause our babies discomfort. 

Here are some great things about the Zipadee-Zip

1. Sleep - Aids swaddle transition and teaches self-soothing skills
2. Travel - Encourages sleep and settling on long car or plane rides
3. Dr. Office Visits - Eliminates tedious clothing changes
4. Grocery Visits and Plane Rides - Provides a GERM-FREE environment
5. Breastfeeding - Prevents a baby from scratching themselves and momma!
6. Stroller walks or walks/rides in a sling or baby carrier - can be worn while buckled or strapped in!
7. MORE SLEEP! Aids transition to crib off of a swing, or rock and play sleeper and helps sick little ones get rest when they wouldn't otherwise

When Calls the Heart 'Lost and Found' DVD Review

“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 19th 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.

When Calls the Heart: Lost & Found is a touching and gripping tale from Janette Oake, that was brought to the screen by director Michael Landon Jr. and the Hallmark channel. Lost and Found is the first film of this new series, which is a continuation of the original film.

Honk Honk! Beep Beep! Children's Book Review

Honk Honk! Beep Beep!

Father and child rise early for a trip to watch the sunrise on the mountaintop.  Along the way they meet many friendly faces, some headed the same direction, and others in their own vehicles—big rigs, bulldozers and trains--with their own places to go and things to do. Nothing beats the start of a brand new day, especially when there are many vehicles to spot along the way.  

With a simple, playful text and boldly colored, toy-like illustrations, Daniel Kirk captures the fun of a special drive.

This is such a cute little book with the illustrations and the story. I really like that the book is a board book. This is nice because the pages are also board, which allows the pages to last longer without the fear of the pages being ripped. The board pages also allow young readers to get used to flipping from page to page.

The Book Thief Blu-ray Review

Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany.  When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**).  Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father.  When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him.  Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey). 

Now and then, I get the urge to watch a movie sort of different than what I am used to. I’ll admit that World War II, as bad as it was, has been responsible for some really great, classic films. There are countless retellings of things that actually happened, as well as fictional events. The Book thief is a good film, so I would have to say that the book is probably amiable as well.
