Easter Special: Jesus, His Life Series Finale on The History Channel Series Finale

Guest Blog Post: This post is written by my movie-loving expert reviewer
husband, Boulder Mt. Man. Enjoy!

"And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed,  saying, 'Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done'. Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground."   Luke 22:41-44

As Easter Sunday nears, Luke 22:41-44 is such a powerful reminder of what Jesus Christ gave up for all of mankind. This has always been one of my favorite passages of scripture because of the reminder that Jesus put Himself before us. He did not have to do this, He chose to do it of His own free will. He loved us that much. It is a challenge to me to attempt to put someone else before me even at half of that level.

The History Channel series, “Jesus: His Life” explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures, all of whom played a pivotal role in Jesus’ life including Joseph, John the Baptist, Mary Mother of Jesus, Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene and Peter. 

Each figure takes a turn guiding viewers through the emotional and epic story of the most famous man in history, through his birth, death and resurrection, all conveyed through a combination of scripted drama and interviews with prominent religious and historical experts. Utilizing some of the world’s most respected Biblical scholars, historians, faith leaders and theologians, the series weaves together the canonical Gospels, historical sources and cultural context to create a complete portrait of Jesus – the man and the Messiah.  The series finale airs this Monday, April 15 on The History Channel at 8pm ET/PT.
This is a really exciting series on The History Channel that is probably long overdue. 

Don't miss the epic series finale of: “Jesus: His Life”, this Monday, April 15 on The History Channel at 8pm ET/PT. Here's a quick glimpse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMKbNKH6mp0&feature=youtu.be

DoubleTree Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Views - Family Travel Review

DoubleTree by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort

Spring in Myrtle Beach is beautiful. We loved partnering with DoubleTree by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort in early March. This beautiful property has all of the amenities you'll need and plenty of space! We loved all of the opportunities right on the property. Come check it out!

We arrived to the most incredible welcoming staff with beautiful ocean views! From the moment we walked through the door, we were in our own private paradise. DoubleTree Myrtle Beach has its own private beach so you get a quieter experience with other guests only. It was nice to be spoiled.

We loved all of the decks with comfortable, pretty outdoor furniture to relax, outdoor seating at Ocean Blue restaurant and the patio seating all in the main resort building. DoubleTree Myrtle Beach is unique in that it has separate buildings and with those two buildings come with their own amenities. Convenient, clean and fun. Their private oceanfront beach was our favorite!

DoubleTree Myrtle Beach keeps the tradition of homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies which is their original recipe for the resort! So delicious. Our boys were happy to enjoy these.

Here is a Pro Tip for Families and Groups: 

At DoubleTree you can get adjoining rooms with oceanfront balconies! The boys had their own bathroom and room and we had our separate room and bath making it a suite for our family. Here is the view from our room at sunset. So fun! I love the pink clouds peeking through the cloudy sunset.

We spent time relaxing in the community room with an ocean view. So fun! Bright and beautiful! 

Here is the beautiful deck Oceanside. So mesmerizing to relax here! 

We loved the Fitness Center! Our family enjoyed working out together after our drive down to Myrtle Beach. It was so wonderful. We all enjoyed the activity including weights, treadmill, and elliptical.  You have key access anytime you'd like.

The Fitness Room had plenty of towels, headphones (disposable so helpful!) and filtered water! We were really set then! I needed the headphones since my headphones were still packed. It was great to just workout while there and not miss my music! Really thoughtful amenities there. There was plenty of equipment for all four of us to do our own favorite workouts.

The Fitness Center was locked and you just scan your DoubleTree Key Card to get in for easy access wheneve you want to workout. We enjoyed working out and having the equipment we needed for full workouts! 

We enjoyed the treadmill! My favorite! :) 

Then, it was on to the indoor pool! It was a little cool earlier in March so it was great the boys could still swim and enjoy the indoor heated pool. There are six pools and two lazy rivers on property! 

Here was another great view from Ocean Blue Restaurant! I'll have a separate write up of the amazing breakfasts we had there! Here are the views - indoors and outdoors. The choice is yours and the service is exceptional. We loved the healthy omelet options and more. 

Our rooms were modern and spacious! The beds were very comfortable! Our rooms were so spacious and we loved the oceanfront patios. Our boys' room connected for our own private suite. :) We all loved it.

The on-site Concierge was helpful in answering questions and making recommendations. We loved the Guest Services Texting. Every time we needed a thing, we texted and asked and they helped us quickly making our stay all the more pleasant.

We loved the Farm Fresh Omelettes. Made to order. The Chef was so accommodating. 

We enjoyed choosing our vegetables, meats, and cheeses. 

Here are a couple that we created! I tried the Low Country Omelet with crab and soft cheeses. It was delicious! 

Here is my hot and fresh breakfast! I love grapefruit so I enjoyed this fresh grapefruit with my meal. 

After the hearty breakfast, we walked on the beach! It as so refreshing. 

The boys have always loved the beach. We're fortunate. 

 The DoubleTree pool by the restaurant, Ocean Blue, was inviting as well! We almost had breakfast poolside. :)

I was very happy doing a little photo editing in the Cabanas! These were vibrant, comfortable and private! The minifrigerators were cute, too.

I had a relaxing and beautiful view! The Cabanas are great for catching a nap, too! 

Thank you DoubleTree Oceanfront Resort Myrtle Beach by Hilton for hosting our family! We loved our stay and hope to see you again soon. We hope you get to go!
