What a Yuletide season it has been for our inaugural feature film, Miracle on Christmas: it has aired on two American TV networks, made the bestseller list for DVDs at major retailer Barnes & Noble and now will run again on Cozi TV this Saturday. All we can say is thank God from whom all blessings flow!


The movie, written and directed by yours truly, came out last Christmas and stars Christian actress Erin Bethea as a woman wavering in her faith until a surprise visitor joins her family's Christmas Day celebration. Fellow Christian players Jason Burkey, Micah Lynn Hanson and Brett Varvel - who stars as the visitor - make up the rest of the principal cast in the picture.


Though it looks a lot like Hallmark Christmas fare, with bright lighting, bold color schemes and ornaments galore, Miracle on Christmas is very much a faith-based movie, focusing on the hope we have because of the birth of Jesus regardless of our circumstances. The story thus deals with serious, real-life issues, though it endeavors to do so in an uplifting way.


Speaking of which, there is lots and lots of Christmas music throughout, including Hark the Herald Angels Sing, O Holy Night, We Three Kings, and Joy to the World, to name but a few. In a word, if you like the Christmas classics, you're in for a treat!


Our movie will air on Cozi TV - a national over-the-air channel - on Christmas Day (Saturday, December 25th) at Noon EST/11:00 AM CST, and you can find the network in your area via this link to its website. You can also stream the film anytime on Amazon Prime Video and Tubi TV, and that latter one is free and doesn't even require you to sign up. The DVD is also available to purchase from Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon.
