Speaking Up For Unknown Soldiers #06 – WETv
This week Colonel Garry Thomas will be “Speaking Up For The Unknown Soldiers” with special studio guest Ginger Fondren. Another original production from the Nashville Broadcast Network on WETv
NBC has announced its upcoming holiday film “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” will air Thursday, Dec. 10th 9-11 p.m. ET/PT
“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” is based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton’s remarkable upbringing. This once-in-a-lifetime movie special takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a raggedy patchwork coat that helped make Parton who she is today.
The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smokey Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Dolly’s whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life around the time she was 9 years old.
Three cast members were recently added to the production, which begins this week in Atlanta.
Jennifer Nettles will play Parton’s mother, Avie Lee Parton. Gerald McRaney, one of the most respected actors of his generation, will play Grandpa Jake Owens. Ricky Schroder will portray Dolly’s father, Lee Parton.
As previously announced, Alyvia Alyn Lind will portray 9-year-old Dolly Parton. Alyvia most recently had a role in the Lifetime movie spoof “A Deadly Adoption,” with Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. She has also appeared in “Masters of Sex” and “Transparent.”

Picture yourself standing at the edge of an ocean, on a beach covered with pebbles. The pebbles represent problems-yours, your family’s, your friends’, the world’s. As you pick up these small stones and hold them close to your eyes-examining their details-they obscure your view of the grandeur all around you. Usually, as soon as you put down one pebble-problem, you pick up another. Thus, you fail to enjoy the beauty of My Presence and to receive My help.
The ocean represents Me-endlessly glorious and continually present with you. I am calling you to put down all the pebbles for a time so that you can experience My Presence and receive My unfailing Love. Draw near Me by praying, I choose You, Jesus. I choose to see You-to find You-in this moment. Practice doing this until it becomes a habit: a delightful habit that will keep you close to Me on the path of Life.
Holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. -Hebrews 3:1
“The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. -Psalm 33:5”
By faith [Moses] left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. -Hebrews 11:27
