Christmas Lodge DVD - review and giveaway

Are you ready for Christmas? I can't believe it's only a month and a half away. I have to admit, I have done NO shopping yet. After watching Christmas Lodge on DVD, I am definitely in the mood for Christmas now, though.

Synopsis: 
Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.
I loved the way this movie worked faith in God into the story line. There aren't enough movies that are willing to openly discuss God and faith.

The scenery in this movie was incredible! I am not an outdoor kind of gal, but the scenes of the mountains and hiking trails actually made me want to visit there. I now have a desire to find a little mountain lodge like the Christmas Lodge to go visit. I can see how someone with a love of the outdoors, like main character Mary, would have such a passion for a place like that and want to see it restored.
