For the good citizens of Hope, Washington, the future appears hopeless- until a small boy's crazy idea for a Homespun Christmas begins to turn things around. A century earlier, when pastor Fergus McKay came as pioneer to the small logging village of Hope, he envisioned a place where couples could fall in love and grow old together in service to God and community. But over the years, the hope died - and all that remained was a village filled with despair. This Christmas, will the vision of that young minister find fulfillment at last? Can the Christmas wishes of one small boy ignite the fires of optimism in the citizens of Hope, Washington, once again? Enjoy the holiday season as it once was - and may be again - in a town called Hope. Discover a real Homespun Christmas.
