Moments With Mercy: Interview With Charlotte Hegele!

Image
Hey y'all,
Charlotte is one of my favorite actresses and when I reached out after finding out she would be rejoining the cast of When Calls The Heart this season, I was so thrilled when were able to work out an interview!  While we actually conducted this interview last month, with the premier tomorrow I thought this would be a great time to share it with you all!
First I'll tell you a little bit about Charlotte and then we'll get started!
"Charlotte Hegele was born in Toronto but spent most of her formative years in London, Ontario. Although Hegele began acting in community theatre, she knew film was where her ambitions lay. She returned to Toronto in 2008 to attend Humber College's Acting for Film and Television Diploma Program. After graduation Hegele began work on several projects filming in Toronto and quickly landed a lead role on the award winning Canadian hit Bomb Girls."

And now for the interview!

Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Moments With Mercy: Interview With Kristin Booth

Image
POstables, It is with great joy that I'm sharing this interview with you all!
Kristin, since the very first time I saw "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", became one of my favorite actresses.  She is such a beautiful and talented person and I'm amazed every time I see her acting ability.
Straight off I'll share a little bit about Kristin, and then we'll get right into the interview.

"Kristin Booth is a Canadian actress, born in Kitchener, Ontario. She graduated with Honours BFA from Ryerson Theatre School at Ryerson University in 1997. She is also a graduate of Rockway Mennonite Collegiate in Kitchener, Ontario."



Mercy: What started your interest in acting?
Kristin: When I was 12 years old I auditioned and was cast as a chorus orphan in a summer stock production of “Annie.”  I fell in love with performing and never looked back.

Mercy: What is your favorite part of being in Hallmark films?
Kristin: Hallmark is a family and they make family-friendly entertainme…

Review of "When God Calls The Heart" Written by Brian Bird and Michelle Cox

Image
Hi Hearties,  I was so excited to receive the "When God Calls The Heart" devotional for review.  I've decided to share my thoughts on the first day (today), day 20 (halfway through) and on day 40 (the last devotional)! 
I hope you all decide to follow along on my journey!

Now, so far I've technically done the first 5 days since I did the preview on the Bible app they offered before the book released but I've decided to restart at the very beginning again :)


First of all I have to comment about the dedication...  Brian and Michelle put- "This book is dedicated to the Hearties, the best fan group in the world."  That, to me, was so sweet and I speak for myself (and I'm sure for all the other Hearties) when I say thank you both SO MUCH for that.  We are all so grateful for you both!!

Right underneath the dedication is Jeremiah 29:13, which I have to say; is one of my personal favorite Bible verses.

The next part is the Foreword.  Written by the lovely…

Review of Love In The Rain!

Image
Hey y'all, I am so excited to share my review of this wonderful book with you all!
As many of you know I have already interviewed both the authors of this book- Kerri Brown and Cleopatra Thomas.

I received Love In The Rain in the mail Monday morning (with a lovely note from Kerri) and may or may not have finished it by that afternoon... :)  I'm a very fast reader but the book is also very interesting.  Just ask my family, if I'm not interested in a book it will probably take me around a week to finish it.  If I really enjoy a book, I'll finish it within a few days.


"When Judith Marshall left her city home to start schools across the Canadian frontier, she had no intentions of falling in love.  But when she meets the handsome and charming Constable Henry Allen, her plans may change.  Every time they make progress in their relationship, they are torn apart.  It seems hopeless.  But what does God have in store for them?"

Okay, first things first.  One of my favo…

Review Of WCTH Boxed Set Season 4 and Giveaway of When Calls The Heart Cookbook!

Image
Hey y'all!  I am so excited to share this review and giveaway with you all!

I reached out to Edify Films about this and was so thrilled when they agreed.  I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it arrived. 

Now, When Calls The Heart is a favorite in our family, and this is my personal favorite season.

When Calls The Heart is based on novels by Janette Oke, and tells the story of young teacher (Elisabeth Thatcher) who comes West to teach in a coal mining town (Hope Valley). She falls in love with the Mountie- Jack Thornton.  This series while mainly focusing on Jack and Elisabeth also tells the story of others in Hope Valley. 
Personally this series has a huge Little House on The Prairie feel to me, and I love that it is completely family friendly! :) 

I have to comment on the case because so many times I buy dvd/movies and the discs are ok, but the case is not well made.  That is not the case at ALL with this company!  The cases are very sturdy and well made.


Not only does th…
