When Calls the Heart

Do you watch When Calls the Heart?  If you don't know about his darling show on the Hallmark Channel, you are in for a treat!  This is a family-friendly series I highly recommend.

This charming series takes place in a turn-of-the century coal mining town.  Residents face hardships, celebrate life's special moments, and often weave their faith into the story.

A friend told me about this show last year and over the summer my kids and I binge-watched the first four seasons.  (The first three are on Netflix, we bought the fourth on Amazon Video.)  We would spend the day outdoors, swim at the pool, then settle in for rest in the afternoon by watching and episode (or two) together.  We eagerly awaited the show's return with a fabulous episode airing on Christmas day and airing weekly starting in February.

It's exciting without being too scary and romantic in a completely appropriate way.  We like to shout "woo woo!" when Jack and Elizabeth kiss.  It's so fun to get wrapped up in a quality series that I can enjoy with my kids.  My husband occasionally watches with us too.  If you're looking for something to enjoy as a family, give When Calls the Heart a try!
