HGTV Host Page Turner Says Her Show Is A ‘Ministry’ Opportunity

Popular HGTV host Page Turner recently shared how her faith has played a role in her career as a home renovator and real estate broker.

“It speaks to where we can find our lives sometimes,” said Turner regarding her HGTV show, Fix My Flip.  “I’ve been in a stuck place before. Where I just needed a helping hand, just somebody to show me the way, just a bridge to get across.”

Turner grew up in Southern California with an agnostic mother who embraced the New Age thinking of the 1960s, but it wasn’t until Turner was 19 years old that a close friend invited her to church.

She recalled, “I went Friday night three nights in a row and, that third Friday night, I gave my life to the Lord. I was still unclear, not sure what that meant, but I knew that I had peace that I felt in that little old white steeple church on the corner of La Brea and Adams, out here in Los Angeles, and I never turned back after I had that experience with God. I remember it so clearly.”

Knowing her roots, Turner now wears her faith on her sleeve and considers her show as part of a ministry. For more information, visit www.hgtv.com.

Martin Scorsese To Make New Movie About Jesus, Says Pope Inspired Him

One of the most decorated filmmakers in Hollywood said he is planning to make another film about Jesus.

Martin Scorsese, a 14-time Oscar nominee, said he decided to make a film about Christ after meeting with Pope Francis during a cinematic event in Italy recently.

“I have responded to the Pope’s appeal to artists in the only way I know how: by imagining and writing a screenplay for a film about Jesus,” Scorsese stated, adding, “And I’m about to start making it.”

The project would not be the first time Scorsese has delved into themes of Catholicism. In 1988, he made The Last Temptation of Christ, and 2016’s Silence, centered on Jesuit Christians.
