Christy--DVD Recommendation

Courtesy: Christian Cinema

This dvd series which originally appeared on CBS from April 1994 to August 1995 was based on a book by the same name by author Catherine Marshall (Wikipedia).  Christy (played by Kellie Martin) leaves her home to serve in a mission in the Appalachian village called Cutter Gap in Tennessee as a school teacher.  She faces several challenges as the new teacher in Cutter Gap. She has to get used to the mountain people's way of living.  She has to find a way to win the people's trust.  She has students and parents that are against her teaching at the school.  But she doesn't have to do all these things alone.  She has her faith in God to lean on.  She also has a lady named Alice Henderson (played by Tyne Daly) as her mentor.  

It is a GREAT tv show for all ages!  It has to be one of my all time favorites!   There was a time when I wanted to be a school teacher.  This show really ministered to me and spoke to me as a born-again Christian and a then teacher-wannabe!   I think it would be great to go serve as a teacher in the mission field, especially in the mountain community! 

If you are looking for a tv show that is entertaining for both adults and kids, this is it!  You can purchase it for a reasonable price at: Amazon.
