Love's Christmas Journey is a 2011 made-for-television Christian drama film based on a series of books by Janette Oke though there is no corresponding book for this film. It aired on Hallmark Channel on November 5, 2011. The film is part of the Love Comes Softly series of films on Hallmark Channel that includes Love Comes Softly (2003), Love's Enduring Promise (2004), Love's Long Journey (2005), Love's Abiding Joy (2006), Love's Unending Legacy (2007), Love's Unfolding Dream (2007), and Love Takes Wing (2009), and Love Finds a Home (2009), as well as two prequels; Love Begins (2011) and Love's Everlasting Courage (2011). The story focuses on Ellie King (née Davis) and Aaron Davis, the now adult children of Clark and Marty Davis and half-siblings of Missy Davis. Clark and Marty were introduced in Love Comes Softly along with Clark's daughter Missy. While the rest of the films, excluding the prequels, follow the lives of Missy and, eventually, her family, this story does not include her and is set at an unspecified point, part way through the series.


While still mourning the loss of her husband and daughter, recently widowed Ellie King (Natalie Hall) visits her brother Aaron Davis (Greg Vaughan) and his children for Christmas. Ellie does her best to enjoy the holidays, even making new friends with Mrs. Thompson (JoBeth Williams), a local shop keeper, and handsome admirer Deputy Strode (Dylan Bruce). Settling in nicely with her brother's family, Ellie also meets Erik (Bobby Campo), a young man abandoned by his outlaw father whom Aaron has taken in as one of his own. When Aaron travels out of town to purchase adjacent land for farming, Ellie agrees to watch his children, but the season's festivities are threatened when Aaron goes missing.[1][2]
