It is something not often shared by those in Hollywood. But when such a thing is, it can have a memorable and moving impact.
During an interview with Pure Flix Insider, Andrea Logan White, the star of their streaming show “Malibu Dan the Family Man,” shared her story about finding Jesus and knowing He is real. It began with a lifestyle and culminating moment that many can relate to.
The interview video was published on Facebook. It is more than 16 minutes in duration, but the relevant quotes are included below.
White introduced the topic by sharing that it all happened when she was about 22 years of age and struggling with obtaining consistent acting work. She’d been living a worldly life, common in Hollywood.
“I was doing everything to try to do what it is to make one happy in the world’s eyes.” It was at this time, in one of her darkest moments, she cried out for help, while at a stoplight at Sunset Boulevard.
“God, if you’re real I need you to show me who you are, because I don’t know why I’m here and I don’t want to live anymore.” And then her miraculous answer came.
A man in a car next to her honked his horn at her and gestured toward his radio before driving away. Not only had he been listening to a Christian radio station, but as he drove away White saw that his bumper sticker said, “Jesus loves me.”
White located the Christian radio station and was immediately greeted with a pastor saying exactly what she needed to hear, and when she needed to hear it. “It was a pastor repeating the exact words that I had just cried out to God.”
“God knew that he had to give me a blatant miraculous sign to say, ‘Your time on this Earth is not done yet.’” White is now married to fellow actor, David A.R. White, who is also the co-founder of Pure Flix.
I found Jesus and He completely changed my life. What was once darkness and hopelessness became light and joy. ~ Andrea Logan White

Pure Flix is “the world’s largest Christian movie production and distribution company.” It has also “produced over 100 Christian movies and distributes over 3500 titles through PureFlix.com so that families can have clean entertainment options,” according to Pure Flix Insider.
“I think God is always pursuing us. It’s up to us to really wake up and see the signs.”
Every fracture is a place that reminds us we have an eternal inheritance ahead of us – to that time when we will live face-to-face with the God of all-surpassing love. – “Andrea Logan White”

Some would say that her purpose has been found in the work she now does with her husband in providing Christian entertainment for families. Not only did her special experience help change her life, but the resulting path she is taking has arguably helped change many other lives, as well.
