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.
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.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia
The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.
The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting. There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe. The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food. In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision
When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.
Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long. Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru. Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages. “At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said. Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1910950709034153 “The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.” Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking. “There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.” His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick…
