Movie Monday

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite books and movies. If you have never read the Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke, you are in for a real treat. I discovered this series of books way back in 1983. I loved all pioneer books and this was a new series of christian based books my local Bible store carried. I could not get enough! I devoured them and wished for more. I was very happy when Michael Landon Jr made the books into movies. However, he has not been true to the books. I get aggravated at some of the changes he has made to the stories. But, they are good family based movies and I highly recommend them. But, I encourage you to read her books. I have been an avid fan for years and know you will enjoy them.
Hugs to all

I've got most of her books in this series (unless she's added more in the last seven or eight years! Has she?).

I was also diappointed in the movies...they were good, but not what I expected. Hallmark does a good job, though one of their movies that is my alltime favorite is "THE MAGIC OF ORDINARY DAYS"....I think you'd really like it...check it out!

Yes, why can't they stick with the book?

Did I tell you I sent my dues to Sisters On The Fly. Not heard back yet.

Hi Lorri, I just wanted to let you know that I made your Chicken Pot Pie recipe, and it was utterly delicious! We didn't want to stop eating it! So Good! It will become a regular recipe around here, for sure! Thanks for posting the recipe.

I've watched the whole series. I agree with you on how somethings turned out. But I do love to watch them. I wish they made more good movies like this. Rosemarie
