Christmas in Winter Hill

My review:

“God allows the rain to fall on the just and unjust. We’ve all had our troubles.”

Krista decided to relocate with her 8-year-old daughter, Emily, to Winter Hill, Washington. She’s taking on a new job as city manager and hoping for a new start. Winter Hill seems like a sweet little town, but Krista soon learns that along with this small town comes a huge annual Christmas festival, and as city manager she’s going to have to get involved. The issue is that Krista really doesn’t like Christmas. Growing up in foster homes, Christmas was never her favorite time of year and only brings back memories or her past. The town seems welcoming at first, but once Krista starts making changes at her new job everything becomes quite a mess, and it seems like moving to Winter Hill may have been a huge mistake.

“Christmas is a time for miracles. Maybe it’s time for yours.”

Lauren Daigle “Rescue”

Lauren Daigle has such a beautiful voice. The first time I heard her sing she sounded very similar to Adele to me. Her songs are powerful.

“Rescue” is one of my top favorite songs for 2019. You can also watch the story behind the song below if you’d like. If this is your first time hearing her, I hope you enjoy it.

Danny Gokey “Haven’t  Seen It Yet”

I’ve spoken with at least three people in the last week that mean a lot to me who are dealing with multiple struggles. One is a close friend who doesn’t deal with stress well and has dealt with a boatload of bad luck over the past two years. It’s very hard for him to see anything positive right now and I know exactly what that feels like. I’ve had personal struggles this year including issues with my own health and often wonder about my future. This song brings me hope and inspires me to maintain strong faith no matter how hard life gets.
