I have not had cable for a long time. My husband and I have been watching DVD’s and youtube for our entertainment. We recently decided to get Netflix. I really did not know how much Christian themed content was available on Netflix!! They have so much on there. Since it is the Christmas season, I have been watching quite a few Christmas movies. I was so excited to stumble upon The Heart of Christmas. I recently posted that the song One Last Christmas was one of my favorite Christmas songs. Did you know that story is also in a movie?!?! The movie stars Candace Cameron Bure too.
Though you know the sad ending, the story still warms your heart and gives you hope. I think the biggest thing I learned from the movie was the support of the doctors and other parents at St. Jude. It seems like it is one big family and much needed, especially when facing such trials as a young terminal child. The movie is also a reminder to live each day to the fullest. Each moment is a gift from God and should not be spoiled!
I give The Heart of Christmas 4/5 stars.
