FILM SYNPOSIS: It all starts with one little seed of
love."The Miracle Maker is coming!" Everyone in the tiny hamlet is
excited when they hear the news that the renowned man of wonders is coming to
their village. But the humble traveler who appears isn't what anyone expected.
They were looking forward to someone magnificent who would change their lives.
But it seems this man can barely take care of himself, let alone fulfill the
dreams of others. However, miracles can come in all shapes and sizes-and
sometimes from unexpected places.
The Miracle Maker is a movie I could watch over and over throughout the years. It is a nice clean family movie.
The setting is small town in west. Horse and buggy was the mode of transportation. The people are down trodden. When a telegram comes saying, " A Miracle Maker is coming" Everyone gets excited about it and hopeful.
The children are really good. One little girl I can still see her angry marching across town. Another of the children has a big roll and hardly has any lines, but gets his character right.
Lots of familiar actors are in the movie.
I would buy this DVD to give as a Christmas Gift.
This movie was made in Utah.
I was given this DVD so I could post a honest review.
I'm now staying with my brothers. I feel lucky because Home health will becoming for at least 3 weeks of PT, OT and bath aid to help shower and dress.
I think this will be longer than I want to heal. I have to have help even opening laptop, bottle of water, hair& dressing. don't sleep to well, but more comfortable in recliner over bed. My daughter took me to walmart to get shoes, shower seat ect. it hurt even to drive power wheelchair so that is not happening again for awhile.
My dog is glad to see me.
still on pain killers,still can't hold kindles for long. will do what I can, when I can.

My review: From Baptist Preacher to Mormon Teacher by Wain Myers, Kelly L. Martinez
I found this to be a truthful book, a reminder to me of things I need to keep working on, a interesting book that I did not want to put down. I found myself crying quiet tears in a few spots. I learned some new things too. I appreciated Wain telling his story and sharing his testimony and love of Jesus Christ. The lessons he learned along the way.
This is a fast read that is full of life lessons Wain has learned. I like how he and his wife don;t think of your kids, mine and our kids. That is tough to do. In fact I want to ask now which were your wife's two children now. It is not important as long as your children all feel your love and support.
Constant with your discipline of the rules is very right thing but hard to do.
Wain shares his love of scriptures, prayers that were answered and special people along the way that made a difference in his life.
I like how he answers tough questions. I hope I can do that the right way too. With love and testimony not fighting. Too find out what the real issues are.
Thank you for being willing to write your story to uplift those who take the time and effort to listen and hear what you have learned that can help strengthen there lives too.
Your story made my day.
I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishers. In return I agreed to give a honest review of From Baptist Preacher to Mormon Teacher.

About This Author
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but
think I’m a European. After spending my senior year of high school in
Germany, I developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured.
My flying Dutch husband and I have lived in Ohio, Virginia, the
Netherlands, Germany and now Istanbul. We still haven’t decided if we
want to settle down somewhere – let alone where. I’m leaning towards
somewhere I can learn to surf even though the hubby thinks that’s a less
than sound way to decide where to live. Although I’ve been a military
policewoman, a commercial lawyer, and a B&B owner, I think with
writing I may have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up.
That’s assuming I ever grow up, of course. Between playing tennis,
running much slower than I would like, trying to adopt every stray dog
within a 5-mile radius, traveling to exotic new locales, singing off
tune, drinking entirely too many adult beverages, addictively watching
new movies and reading books like they are going out of style, I write
articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, review other
indie authors’ books, write a blog about whatever comes to mind and am
working on my seventh book.
This is a fun light hearted murder mystery. I want to read more of the series. DE says this is the last one, but it was my first one.
I want to go back sometime and read the first two books in the series.
There is a lot of characters in this novel a wide range of them. They make me laugh. I can see why they scare some people.
Delilah has left her husband and moved back were her grandma lives. She does not want everyone to know her business but they all do. Dee works for Jack at his dress shop.
Gray-Haired Knitting Detectives travel in a pack together. One is a matchmaker. A couple of gay lovers, a detective and his pregnant wife.
When Delilah's husband comes to town and gets murdered Delilah is the chief suspect. The only suspect. So the group steps in and plans to make sure the right murder is locked up. They also think that she should date Tommy.
I loved the scene in the Police station when the detective falls apart and starts yelling.
I was given Love in the Time of Murder to read for free and in return I agreed to give a honest review and be part of it's book tour.
