Moments With Mercy- Interview With Tammy Gillis!

Image
Hey y'all, I am so ecstatic to be sharing this interview with you all!

The first film I saw Tammy in was "Unleashing Mr. Darcy".  I remember really enjoying her role in that movie and admiring her acting.
A couple months later my sister and I sat down and watched "Signed Sealed Delivered - Impossible Dream"... her performance in this movie and the previous SSD movie, "Truth Be Told", really showcase her acting ability.
If you haven't seen any of these films I highly recommend them!!

At Hallmarks TCA event they announced the sequel to "Unleashing Mr. Darcy", "Marrying Mr. Darcy"!  They have JUST finished filming this movie and Tammy has been sharing some fun behind the scenes tidbits (if you don't follow her, you're missing out!).  "Marrying Mr. Darcy" airs on June 2nd and is definitely a movie you don't want to miss!

And now for the interview!

Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself
Tammy: I am…

Moments With Mercy- Interview With Paul Greene!

Image
Hi Hearties!  This is the second time I've had the privilege to interview Paul Greene.
Paul is one of my favorite "Hallmark actors" and one of the actors I respect the most in today's Hollywood industry.

Paul's film credits speak for themselves, so without further introduction, let's get started!

Mercy: What is your favorite part of being on the set of When Calls The Heart?
Paul: One of my favorite parts is being in Canada. But that’s also one of the most challenging parts, as it keeps me away from my family. I am Canadian, and I love Canada.
I also love the magic in Hope Valley. It has a very special feel when you walk down Main Street.

Mercy: How would you like to see Carson’s character evolve?
Paul: Most of my movies I do are romantic comedies, so I would love more comedy opportunities for Carson. That's challenging when he deals with life and death situations, but that would be fun. I enjoy comedy.

Mercy: How long have you been playing the guitar and sin…

Day 20 - 40 of When God Calls The Heart!

Hi Hearties!  Back to share my thoughts on day 20-40 of When God Calls The Heart. I will share a little bit from around 5-8 devotionals...
 I am so sorry for this being so late!


Day 24 "Be Somebody's Hero" Deut 20:4 "At some point in our lives, God calls each of us to overcome out fears and stand up for whats right..."
 Sometimes we're afraid to stand up for whats right.  This chapter encourages us, telling us that "God will go with us into battle".
Day 25 " Loving The Unlovely" Eph 4:32 "The Bible says that a soft answer turns away wrath.  Theres always a deeper reason for an obnoxious persons behavior..."

First, can we bring back talking like this!  No one says lovely or unlovely anymore... Anyways, :)  This is something that everyone probably needs at some point in their life.  We've all had times that we respond to someone in a way we shouldn't.  whether it be family, friends or a stranger.  It's been on my hear…

Moments With Mercy- Interview With Ryan Kelly!

Image
Hey y'all!
 I am so excited to be sharing this interview with you all.  Ryan is not only one of my favorite members of Celtic Thunder but he also sings with Byrne and Kelly which is composed of Ryan, Neil Byrne and Nicole Hudson (also with CT) as well as Peter Sheridan.  Byrne and Kelly's tour starts tomorrow and my sisters and I are going to see them in St. Louis!  This will be such a fun event and I can't wait.

It was an absolute honor to interview Ryan (for those interested, it was actually conducted last week)
so without further ado, let's get started!


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

Ryan: I'm Ryan Kelly. I'm part of Byrne and Kelly, and we've actually been with the Irish music group Celtic Thunder from the very beginning. A few years ago, we decided we wanted to try some of our own music as well as working with Celtic Thunder and so that's how Byrne and Kelly started about five years ago. And now we still tour with Celtic Thunde…

Review And Giveaway of Celtic Thunder X!

Image
Hi, fellow Celtic Thunder fans!

How many of you have heard of Celtic Thunder?   Celtic Thunder is a favorite in my family, so when I was given the chance to review their new show, "X", everyone was thrilled.  We often pull a dvd out and pop it in the player while we're doing a puzzle, playing games, or just to relax and enjoy together.

We've loved the previous shows, and this cd/dvd combo is no exception!
It's filled with such a fun mix of songs such as "I'm a Believer", "Phil The Fluters Ball", "Celebration", etc. Some songs such as "The Streets Of London" that will make you think, and of course we can't forget the powerful ballads like "Without You" and "Crow on the Cradle".

Some people have seen promos for X and have been a little hesitant regarding the content and whether it is "traditional Celtic Thunder" material.  If you are one of those people, PLEASE... do yourself a huge f…

Review And Giveaway of When Calls The Heart Coloring Book

Image
Hi Hearties!
I reached out to Jake at FishFlix about doing a review and giveaway because I knew they carried Family Friendly Movies, I was thrilled when he offered to send me the WCTH coloring book!
When it arrived, I have to tell you, I was stunned.  While I knew it would be good quality and expected it to be a nice book, this coloring book is GORGEOUS!
They did a wonderful job with the details.

One of my favorite things about FishFlix is that they specialize in Christian Movies and When Calls the Heart DVDs!  It's nice to see a company with Christian values and I will definitely be going through them to buy Dvds etc. in the future!

While I know its technically a "coloring" book, meaning you'd expect me to be using crayons,  I'm actually using colored pencils for this!  :)  I'm slowly working my way through the coloring book and I am totally enjoying spending my free time coloring.  Also, my mom who has been down with a bad head cold recently is super exci…
