Happy Valentine’s Day … When Calls the Heart: Rules of Engagement

Flowers for Valentine's Day at Thoughts in ProgressToday is thought of as the day for lovers, the day for romance, the day for surprises and love.


I hope you are having, will have or have had a wonderful day and get to celebrate in the way your heart desires.

To celebrate this day of romance I want to share my thoughts on the next DVD release from the delightful When Calls the Heart series inspired by the bestselling series author Janette Oke. The latest release is WHEN CALLS THE HEART: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.

Mounty Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) returns to Coal Valley and his relationship with the local school teacher, Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), seems to be resuming. However, when an unexpected part of Jack’s past arrives in town, Elizabeth isn’t quite sure where she stands.

Meanwhile, Bill Avery (Jack Wagner) continues to investigate the mine explosion with Jack’s help. A budding relationship appears to be growing between Avery and Abigail Stanton (Lori Loughlin), even as she fears where the investigation may lead. A judge (James Brolin) arrives in town to hear the investigation. 

When Calls the Heart Rules of Engagement - Thoughts in ProgressThis on-going series is both entertaining and uplifting. The characters are realistic and likable making it enjoyable to follow their lives. The story has several plots playing out at the same time, but blend together for a comfortable small town community feel. The setting is inviting and wholesome.

WHEN CALLS THE HEART: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is a movie that entire family can watch and enjoy together. While it is entertaining, it also features elements of inspiration and education that can be discussed among those watching. It’s a charming movie for all to enjoy.
