Movie Review & A Giveaway!

I was so thrilled to be with my good friend Michele Ashman Bell at the premiere of A Candle in the Window, the movie based off her book of the same name. I loved her Christmas story when I read it years ago and was excited to see it made into a movie. When Michele was at our book club a few months back she gave us the behind-the-scenes of what it was like to visit the set and see your words come to life. What a fantastic experience! I am so happy for her and for how well this movie turned out.

A Candle in the Window features a family who has lost their mother and is experiencing the holidays without her for the first time. The littlest girl has such faith that her mother will visit them on Christmas Day, but the middle child is still upset about not having her mom there for all the things they used to do together. I thought the man who played the father did an excellent job in portraying his hidden grief while trying to be there for his girls. All of the performances were well done, but the littlest girl truly stole the show with every scene she was in. Adorable!

This is a story about miracles and love and is definitely one your family will want to watch every holiday season. We really enjoyed it!

"Papa, would it be okay if we put a candle in the window so Mama can find her way home?"

John's family is struggling to face Christmas without his loving wife. However, six-year-old Emily is full of faith. Even though her older sisters try to gently lower her expectations, the young girl truly believes her mother will visit on Christmas Eve. In fact, she is so certain her mother will come that she puts a candle in the window to guide her mother on her journey home. Before she passed away, their mother made sure the most cherished holiday traditions would still be there—beautiful handmade dresses, new patent-leather shoes, and a lovingly crafted doll for little Emily. But on the way to a Christmas Eve celebration, the doll is lost, and Emily is heartbroken. Emily—and her grieving sisters—need their mother more than ever. Inspired by true events, A Candle in the Window is a beautiful reminder that our loved ones never leave us and prayers really do get answered—especially when you have the faith of a child.
