I did not care for this movie, I thought it was poorly cast and the story line was rather dull. I have all of the other Janette Oke's Love Comes Softly Series, but I did not care for this one and would not recommend it.
My wife enjoys this series of movies very much, and it's also nice to have movies that are clean with language and other things.
Overall this movie is presenting families of conservative and even Christian values however it also seemed to get mixed in with Santa clause and praying to St. Nick. This unnecessary compromised kind of blew it for us.
Besides all that the spiritual component in this film is definitely lacking for a "Christian" film.
