Strong as an Oke

Jeanette Oke is one of Christian Fiction’s most beloved authors. Her “Love Comes Softly” series of books has sold more than 11 million copies worldwide. Michael Landon, Jr. has taken on the film adaptations as a labor of love. Hallmark Channel has boosted their ratings with every airing from the series. I recently had the privilege of writing a Biblical discussion guide for the latest: Love’s Unfolding Dream. I invite you to download the guide. The movie is showing periodically on Hallmark Channel and will be available to buy or rent on May...
