Have you ever witnessed ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances and rise to the occasion?  You don’t want to miss out on this episode where I talk to Andy Erwin, producer of the film Ordinary Angels, about the uplifting and emotional film based on this true story. This is a story of a hairdresser who becomes a hero and a friend to a widowed father and his two daughters. Andrew and I discuss: The shift in faith-based films The impact of telling authentic stories The criticism and challenges faced by Christian films  Friends, we get the scoop on the story behind the film Ordinary Angels and how it came to be. Andrew tells us about the involvement of Dave Matthews and John Berg in championing the project. He also touches on the message of the film, which focuses on finding purpose and the church as a place of hope.  I love to see excellence portrayed in faith-based films. That’s why I loved watching Ordinary Angels in theaters, and I hope you go watch it too! If you've seen the film, head on over to Instagram and let’s show Andrew some love.

The film 'Ordinary Angels' was inspired by a true story and championed by Dave Matthews and John Berg. The film explores the themes of purpose and the church as a place of hope. Christian films should strive for authenticity and not shy away from portraying real-life struggles. ⋇ Convoy of Hope - Empowering Women and Girls Together Donate here ⋇ Order Bianca’s new book GRIT DON’T QUIT ⋇ The Grit Don’t Quit Bible Study is now available. ⋇ So grateful to our sponsors!
