Planted With Hope by Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore (35)

In the second installment of the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, you'll return to a town and a family you've already grown to love.
When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally--some space away from her four sisters! But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?
The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.

REVIEW:
Lovely story with yummy recipes!
I tried two recipes and loved them both, but then adapted the second again for a third pie. The Luscious Lemonade Pie was my favorite, while the hubby loved the Peanut Butter Pie. (See photos of two of the three pies below.) I can't wait to try more recipes though like the Sausage and Potato Soup now. 
The story follows a young Amish woman as she blends into a new society. She meets the man of her dreams. Then develops a closer relationship to God. The way that the authors told this story, I really liked a lot. With peeks back in time, you watch Hope grow. Almost as nicely as her garden. 
I want to read more Pinecraft Series books. I'm hoping for more recipes in them, but I love the setting and characters too. Made With Love was where it began and I favor it slightly, but this book was a great continuation of the series. I look forward to whatever comes next!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
