What Is Hallmark’s The Gift Of Peace About?

According to the Hallmark synopsis, artist Traci (DeLoach) has a crisis of faith. She stopped “believing in God after her husband tragically died despite her prayers.”

Moreover, she is now about to go into the Christmas season. This is her second without her beloved husband. In addition, she has an important Christmas Eve gallery showing. But, “her creative spark has dimmed.”

Trying to reignite her inspiration, and deal with her loneliness, she goes to a support group. Unexpectedly, this is a faith-based group.

“Realizing she chose the wrong group, Traci leaves abruptly. While Christmas shopping a few days later, she runs into Michael (Elliott), the leader of the group, and apologizes for running out. He convinces her to give the session another try and if she still feels the same way, she doesn’t have to stay beyond Christmas. Although skeptical, Traci agrees. As she participates in Christmas activities related to each week’s theme of comfort, peace, hope, and joy, she bonds with her vibrant, new spiritual community and her art becomes more inspired. Traci finds the strength to keep moving forward and open her heart again, realizing that true faith is more than just answered prayers and that love surrounds us, always.”
