Lily Lawson shared her experience of being on the set of her first Hallmark movie and how she made a new friend.

“On my last day on set, This sweet kitten ( Ninja) was waiting for me to take her home,” she wrote. “I knew I was getting a kitten somehow, she was showing up in dreams lol I just didn’t imagine it would be this special ❤️🫶🏾🐈‍⬛”

Hallmark Jenny, also known as Hallmark Channel’s Chief Fan Officer, shared that Hallmark and Dayspring are working together “with the goal of inspiring, enlightening, and lifting up viewers by celebrating a life focused on #faith.”

“For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that my relationship with Jesus is something that is very important to me,” Dara wrote. “In my latest interview with Benjamin Hollingsworth, there was space made to talk freely and candidly about what my faith has looked like these past few months.
