In Obama’s America, it’s considered risky for public figures to speak out against the president’s anti-Christian agenda. Luckily, there are still celebrities like Jennifer Garner, who aren’t afraid to take a stand in the name of God.

According to The Blaze, Garner grew up going to church every Sunday, but that all changed when she moved to the liberal world of Hollywood. While promoting her new movie “Miracles From Heaven,” however, she revealed that her starring role in the Christian film changed all that, and she is now taking her children to her local Methodist church every Sunday.

“I grew up going to church every Sunday of my life, and when I did move to L.A., it wasn’t something that was just part of the culture in the same way, at least in my life,” Garner said during a Q&A after the movie’s premiere in Dallas, Texas. “But it didn’t mean that I lost who I was.”

Garner returned to Christianity when she agreed to play Christy Beam, a mother whose daughter Annabel survived a disturbing, real-life ordeal in which she was trapped for hours inside of a hollowed-out tree. Beam published a book in 2015 about a series of purported miracles Annabel experienced, including meeting Jesus during the tree experience and her dramatic healing afterwards.

Beam’s story had a profound impact on Garner.

“There was something about doing this film and talking to my kids about it and realizing that they were looking for the structure of church every Sunday,” the actress said. “So it was a great gift of this film that it took us back to finding our local Methodist church and going every Sunday. It’s really sweet.”

“I fell so in love with this family, I fell so in love with their love for each other. I fell so in love with their faith,” Garner added, going on to speak specifically about Christy Beam. “It was a transformative experience to play this woman right here, she made me stronger.”
