WATCH: Veteran and Star of ‘Indivisible’ Shares the Incredible Prayer That Changed Her Life

Published

on

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.

“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.

Pure Talk with Skye Marshall

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.

Mississippi Governor Delivers Message Condemning The Burning Of Church That Opposed COVID-19 Restrictions

Published

on

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves released a statement on Thursday condemning the burning of a church that had opposed the restrictions put in place concerning the spread of the coronavirus. The church had filed a lawsuit against the state for its prohibition on large gatherings. Reeves took to Twitter and stated that he was both “heartbroken and furious” with the shameful action that was taken against the church. “What’s this pandemic doing to us?” he asked in his post. “We need prayer for this country.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The church, First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, burned to the ground sometime early Wednesday morning, according to police. Grafitti was found in the parking lot reading, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.” The burning is being investigated as arson. “We’re in a time where I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a growing hostility toward churches, across the board,” Thomas More Society senior counsel and lawyer for the church Stephen Crampton told Fox News. “And now, here are churches like First Pentecostal that are sort of stirring up the waters by being outspoken and somewhat firm about seeking to protect their constitutional rights.” The church had filed a lawsuit back in April after the pastor of the congregation was given a ticket for holding a drive-in service on Easter, which happens to be one of the most important holidays for Christians, who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead on that day. This belief is the foundation of the Christian faith and it is shameful to not be able to celebrate it together with other believers. Especially when this church was willing to compromise and simply worship from their vehicles and maintain social distancing guidelines. A district attorney later ruled in favor…

Additional California Churches And Sheriffs Join In Defiance Of State, Local Orders

Published

on

Phase 2 of California’s plan to reopen officially kicked off on Friday, but that part of the plan still didn’t allow for the opening of houses of worship for in-person services, something that clearly violates the First Amendment rights of the citizens of the state. While Gov. Gavin Newsom has done his best to strike at the heart of the Constitution by instituting strict stay-at-home orders in the name of safety and security, true patriots have stood up and said enough is enough. Several thousand church leaders in California have stated that they are now planning to reopen for services regardless of what Newsom says about it. They are joined in their defiance by a long list of sheriffs who are actually taking up the mantle to defend the Constitution. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: California Church United, a network of 3,000 California churches, representing 2.5 million members, announced it plans to open May 31, instead of waiting until the state implements phase 3, which includes allowing modified reopening of houses of worship. Many churches are reopening nationwide on May 31, a date specifically chosen because it falls on the Day of Pentecost, a significant date on the Christian calendar. Some plan to open Sunday, May 10. “Our churches are part of the answer, not part of the problem,” Danny Carroll, senior pastor at Water of Life Community Church, said at a news conference held at the Water of Life mega church in Fontana, Calif. “We’re an essential part of this whole journey and we’ve been bypassed … kicked to the curb and deemed nonessential,” Carroll said. Gov. Newsom has acknowledged the work put forth by folks in various faith communities in helping to care for the homeless and others who are in need during the crisis in a press…
