The Heart of Christmas on DVD (Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

If you want a family holiday movie that will really make you appreciate togetherness, you need to see The Heart of Christmas!

The Heart of Christmas, a GMC original film starring Jeanne Neilson and Candace Cameron Bure, has recently been released to DVD and is now available in stores.

The movie is based upon the true story of two-year old Dax Locke and his battle with leukemia.  His story is told through the eyes of his mother,  Julie Locke, who kept an online journal of their experiences at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. I love the fact that this movie does not sugar coat what families go through. GMC has done a tremendous job showcasing all aspects of families who go through hard times like these. You are definitely going to need a box of tissues!

You can purchase The Heart of Christmas on DVD for the suggested retail price of $27.97.  However, you can purchase right now at for only $9.96.  This is a great price for a family movie!

I received a copy of the movie in order to write this review. All opinions listed are our own.

We have an interview coming up with Julie Lock in the upcoming week! I’m really excited to talk with her about this movie and how has it affected her watching her son’s life story played out on the big screen.
