Soul Dreamer Inspiration from DeVon Franklin – Hollywood Executive and Author of Produced by Faith

“I know from my own experiences that if you will put your career in God’s hands and trust Him, you can’t account for all the ways He will bless you. When you step out in faith, he will open doors and bring you opportunities that will surpass even your wildest expectations…

If I have learned anything, it’s this: to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be.” - DeVon Franklin, Author of Produced by Faith

Hollywood is often thought to be a place where believers may face decisions that cause them to compromise or stray from their beliefs. DeVon Franklin, vice president of production for Columbia Pictures who is also a preacher, has worked in the midst of show business, having produced movies such as The Karate Kid, Pursuit of Happiness and most recently Jumping the Broom. In his book Produced By Faith: Enjoy Real Success without Losing Your True Self Franklin talks about the importance of knowing our vocation and calling, and how we can serve God within the field He places us without compromising what we believe in.
