Podcast: Suffering, Body Image, and Hollywood Standards with Melissa Kerley

Melissa Kerley is woman on a mission to make faith-based films that inspire thoughtful reflection. Today we talk about enduring suffering, what it’s like to work in an industry that’s focused on image, and her latest film, “Faith Under Fire” that stars Dean Cain and Kevin Sorbo. Here are some of the places we went in today’s conversation:

  • Melissa shares her personal story of losing her sister to breast cancer a few years ago and the impact that had on her and her family.
  • We talk about the roles of different types of movies from Hallmark Channel to entertainment that keeps us guessing and makes us think about biblical truth.
  • We talk about what it’s like to be a Christian in the film industry and Melissa’s approach to casting women who are beautiful on the inside.

Check out Melissa’s movie and let me know what you think. Dean Cain? Kevin Sorbo? Could be a good one!

(**Sound quality is a little rough on this one, but I think you’ll still enjoy our conversation!)
