If your stove has a blower I don't think so. Im an no proffessional HVAC man but I don't like running ceiling fans in the winter. (feel that the cooling effect of air movement negates any benefit)
From the pic you posted, my amateur opinion is that, since heat will rise up your cathedral ceiling to the bedrooms above anyway, I would not use the ceiling fan at all. Instead use a small fan to blow/suck warm air from the upstairs hall into the bedrooms.
