Mentioned in this Episode
- Did you see the pillows in Lara’s home? At the time of recording the podcast episode, we didn’t know for sure if they were from the Candace Cameron Bure line of pillows available on DaySpring.com. But, they are! You can get your own “Be Still” pillow too! It comes in a set of 2 for $60.
- BJ Harrison plays Martha in this movie. She has a pretty deep resume, including a ton of Hallmark movies. Check her out in Maid on Netflix as Denise – so good.
- We weren’t fans of CCB’s hair in this movie. Here’s a look back at some better hairstyles.
- Did the writers of this movie lean in hard for the conservatives likely watching this movie? Hear us out:
- “Special Snowflake” was the name of a fellow contestant.
- There was a Ted Nugent quote used by Candace Cameron Bure. Nugent is often viewed by others as a controversial conservative.
