DVD review and giveaway: Christmas Lodge

This week I had the chance to review another Christmas movie, this time Christmas Lodge. Here's a bit about this DVD, from a press release that I received:


Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.
This is a very family-friendly movie- there isn't even any kissing between the romantically involved characters, and when the main character takes a trip with her boyfriend, they clearly state that they are staying in separate hotel rooms.  There are also many discussions about prayer and faith. I thought this was a really sweet movie, and I enjoyed the messages of family and faith.  In my opinion, the main character, Mary,  is very well portrayed by Erin Karpluk- she's an actress that I really like to watch on screen.

All in all, I thought this was a very enjoyable movie, and would be a  nice addition to your family's Christmas movie collection!

And I have good news! I'm giving away a copy of this DVD. Open to US mailing addresses, enter with the Rafflecopter widget below.

For the month before Christmas I prefer to have 'all things Christmas'. That means music, tv, and movies, as well as anything else, should be holiday-themed! I'm not a stickler, but I do try to make our home a 'holiday escape'. This would be a great movie to add to the holiday collection! :D

Thanks!
