Like many veterans who return to civilian life, Skye Marshall, despite having landed a great new job at a pharmaceutical marketing firm, felt like something was just not right.
She found herself convinced life in a cubicle just wasn’t for her, but she had no idea what to do about it or where to go next.
This was when her mother presented her with a simple–but powerful–solution.
Do you think the 2nd Amendment will be destroyed by the Biden Administration? (1)
“You need to ask God for clarity,” her mother told her, she recently told PureFlix’s Pure Talk.
This admonition came with a caveat: “But whatever it is, you’ve got to do it.”
“I prayed and I prayed and it was within two weeks I woke up right before my alarm clock and it was as clear as day — ‘Acting, go to L.A.,’” she recalls.
Indivisible star Skye Marshall asked God for clarity on her life — and the Air Force veteran was truly shocked by His response. Watch her explain how she landed in Hollywood, and what she's hoping viewers take away from her new film. #PureTalk

Not the typical answer to a prayer that one would expect, and Marshall resisted the call.
But as time went on she couldn’t deny that God was making himself clear.
“I could not run from it, so for me [it was] getting that message and receiving it,” she says.
She finally packed up and headed out to to LA, with nothing more than God’s call to bring her there.
Interestingly enough, she ended up landing a role that she couldn’t have been more perfect for, confirming God’s hand was clearly in her decision to leave everything behind and pursue acting.
PureFlix Insiders explains:
She explained that her character is in the Army and that the film shows Shonda getting a letter informing her that she would soon be deployed to Iraq. Through the film, Marshall said people will get a sense of what soldiers go through after receiving the call and going abroad to fight for America.
Marshall is particularly excited about the role, as she has long wanted to play a veteran or an active duty officer. Despite her own experience in the Air Force, she had previously been turned down for such roles, being told she didn’t have “the look.”
But when she heard the plotline for “Indivisible,” she knew it was the perfect story for her.
“I was like, ‘Please God — please! This has to be the story I tell,’” she said.
Marshall also shared some of the lessons she took away from her real-life military service, noting that she learned “laser-beam focus,” integrity and the importance of accepting herself. She also highlighted an important point that is driven home in “Indivisible.”
“A lot of time people will say, ‘Thank you for your service’ and they have no idea what that service is,” she said. “It’s not only just the military member that’s enlisted, so is the wife, so is the husband, so are the kids. … It’s not just that service member. You’re thanking the family for their sacrifice.”
We don’t often think of acting as filling a need, but this film appears to be a powerful look at the challenges veterans face in their lives and relationships, and Marshall was clearly a perfect candidate to share this message:
“Just because they’re out of the uniform, the battle hasn’t ended,” she said, explaining that PTSD and other issues can often negatively impact marriages.

America Gets Tutored in the Doctrine of Devils
College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?”
College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?” Universities across America show an outright disregard and disdain for Jesus Christ, a survey by The College Fix finds. “A look at hundreds of religious studies classes at universities across the nation uncovered that, for the most part, professors prefer to snub the subject of who Jesus is and what he preached. Classes that are focused on Christianity, meanwhile, tip-toe around or altogether avoid the topic of Christ’s teachings.” College Fix says, classes in witchcraft, shamanism, yoga, after life beliefs, gender and religion are, but a few of the courses schools now offer the students in American colleges. But it doesn’t start there – it begins in kindergarten classes and elementary education. Drag queens are reading to the kiddies on anything they see fit, all while dressed in full gay regalia. Prophecy News Watch site says “Queer Is In, Christian Is Out.” The piece written by author Jonathon Van Maren that many classic ideas, teachings, and stories for children are getting LGBT makeovers, like these. “According to Christianity Daily, the fairytale Cinderella will be coming to Amazon Prime in September with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter. Porter told CBS that the new version will be “a classic fairytale for a new generation.” The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men. This book was newsworthy not because there is any shortage of this sort of thing lately, but because it is “the first book of its kind to be written and illustrated by same-sex adoptive parents,” and “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.” PBS, as…
Leftists on God, Creation, and Religion
What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God…?
As many citizens know, even those on the Left, our nation was founded based on a strong belief in God. The Founding Fathers recognized that the rights of human beings are bestowed by the Creator, not by other people. They did not require that anyone be religious or adhere to any particular religious doctrine. Concurrently, the often misquoted phrase about the “separation of church and state” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. The statement was part of Thomas Jefferson’s response in 1802 to a religious association in answer to their letter from October 1801. https://usconstitution.net/jeffwall.html An Immutable Right The Danbury Baptists, a religious minority based in Connecticut, lamented that their religious liberty was regarded not as an ‘immutable right,’ but as a privilege granted by the state legislature. Jefferson’s carefully replied, but focused only on religious liberty on the national level. His letter included the phrase “wall of separation between church and state.” This phrase has served as a type short-hand for the First Amendment’s ‘Establishment Clause’ which forbids the government from passing any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This Establishment Clause forbids the government from establishing an ‘official’ religion and from unduly favoring one religion over another. Any reference to God, per se, is an entirely different issue. Whom Do We Trust? Religious sentiment heightened throughout the dark days of the U.S. Civil War, as hundreds of thousands of soldiers died. A clamoring arose for the U.S. to acknowledge the deity, and subsequently the Secretary of the Treasury mandated that the words, “In God We Trust” appear on various Federal Reserve notes and on all coinage. www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspx In 1956, “In God We Trust” became the official motto of the U.S. Today, this phrase, and the words “one nation under God” in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance,…
