gratefully acknowledges the millions of families nationwide
whose continuing support made this film possible.
During the filming of this movie,
on-duty Utah Highway Patrol Trooper
JOSEPH S. BRUMETT
stopped on the interstate to assist
professional animal handlers traveling to the set.
In performing his duties, the trooper was
struck and killed by a motorist.
This motion picture is dedicated to the memory of
and all those who have given their lives
while in service to others.
When Jed and Martha Richards agree to raise young, orphaned Daniel, Jed is delighted.
But Matha, still grieving for her two little girls who died on the trek West, finds herself swept away each day in a thousand wistful memories.
As her golden-haired daughters dance through her aching heart, she can't help comparing them to this awkward, dirty young boy who annoys her at every turn--and needs her so desperately.
Jed and Danny both reach out to Martha, yet her anguish isolates her and threatens the marriage relationship.
But spring sometimes comes unexpectedly, and for Martha it comes on a snowy Christmas Eve when Danny's innocent heart is finally able to rescue hers.
Color, 94 minutes. Featuring Leigh Lombardi, Sam Hennings, Claude Akins, and introducing Logan Hall. Produced by Heart Productions Inc. exclusively for Feature Films For Families.

You may want to discuss the following with your family:
1. Martha couldn't see how much Danny needed her love. Is it easy to recognize others' needs when we are engrossed with our own?
2. What did Danny mean when he said Martha was "hallowed"?
3. Martha lost faith in God because her little girls died. When sad things happen, does it mean God is not watching over us?
4. What did Martha learn about Danny's feelings at the manger scene?
5. Who did Danny say was taking care of Martha's little girls now?
