To the people of faith who have been there for me so many times, I need your prayers, big prayers.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to go into film. I wanted this even as a really little girl, and not in a silly, ‘I wanna be a star,’ kind of way, but in a concrete writing films at 6 years old, I am moving to LA, this is my life’s purpose kind of way. It has never gone away, but I have lost hope time and time again.
When I was a kid, no one believed me. Everyone warned me that it doesn’t happen, and that if it does you lose your soul, but I knew better, so I kept writing and kept hoping, but the despair that had been sown in me was so deep that I never tried. Then, I went to college, and the year after I started to believe again, I experienced the most nightmarish season of depression and anxiety and spiritual warfare of my life. Years later, I married my husband who also wants to make movies, and immediately we went through a season of complete despair and misery.
This year, I have finally recovered hope and faith in God, and I believe in His promises for me again. I have been submitting my screenplay, I made a short film alone, I am consistently writing, and Patrick is making video games. At the same time, we are fighting despair back desperately with everything in us. With every step forward, huge things that scare and intimidate us are happening. We are fighting fear with everything in us, but we are tired and we are hurting.
I feel crazy saying this, but I believe 100% that we are fighting serious spiritual warfare right now. I believe we are meant to do what we have always felt called to do, and I believe we are meant to do it now. I am writing to you because we need your prayers. We need the strongest most unfailing prayers you can give us. We cannot make it through this without you. We have things we are meant to say, and we cannot win this fight without you.
Please pray for us.
