Here's an incredible testimony from an Actor/Writer/Director
- Liz Wallace
"Before "Light in Film," this year specifically, I felt a lot of brokenness and hopelessness within the film industry. As an actor and writer, earlier this year I was pursuing acting but I was not ready, and was not in the right environment for myself. I ended up being physically sick straight from January to April and felt my soul being torn from me like nothing I was was okay to anyone, and how I needed to be someone else. I felt myself being pulled apart, opened up to areas I should never have been opened to and then left with struggling to get back. And pain, so much pain filled my life and I lost the joy in my life. Sadness grew and sorrow for those in the film industry who escaped and coped with what got them by; like everything was so fake and lacked the love that we all seek. I hit a point that I said okay God I’ll stop. I’ll stop trying this my way because I’m only headed in a downward spiral. I gave it over to Him and continue to do so everyday. He has healed me so much and brought me my relationship with Him and my joy back. Then I finally had the chance to try out "Light in Film." After the first night I was there, I was hooked. I have found "Light in Film" appeared in my life when it needed to and I’ve met incredible people that God continues to work through.
God has really opened my eyes and heart to see where I’ve been and who I’ve been before and how much I want Him to change me to be more like Him. I find that my relationship with Christ has grown significantly this year and I feel so much of His joy and peace in my daily life. I find myself seeking relationships with others in order that Christ may be seen through me and that they will find Christ.
It’s not even a possibility to not have "Light in Film" in my life. I have witnessed God speaking through people at "Light in Film," telling me exactly what I need to hear. Christ has shown himself through these amazing people and I’m so excited to be a reciprocate of that love and grace and I’m excited also to pursue to become more and more involved. I always look forward to "Light in Film" every other Wednesday as I have found such community there. It definitely takes priority over other things. I can’t wait to see all that God does with "Light in Film."
As I grow with the Spirit, I have felt such incredible love at "Light in Film." Such acceptance and want for relationships, connection, and growth that I feel "Light in Film" will continue to grow to impact and influence people all over in the entertainment industry. I see lives transformed by the gospel and God’s love."
