My Story - How I got to where I am today 
My Story - How I got to where I am today

Doug keeps telling me to write on here sharing my ‘real world’ experience so I decided the story of how I got to where I am today was the best way to start.

I am Currently working as a full time Casting Assistant at a casting company called Carlyn Davis Casting (www.carlyndavis.com). We are located in the DC/Baltimore area. I started as an intern last October and was offered a full time position by mid December.
For me it started with BOLDNESS and taking those first steps - even if the first step was just a decision to take action.
I left CCM in June of ‘07 after almost three years of the program. I originally moved out to the DC area to live with family and save money before heading to LA - which is where I was sure I was SUPPOSED to be - but I have learned that if you Trust God He will put you where HE wants you and most likley where you need to be . (I guess Solomon wasn’t lying when he said “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9)
I am an actor so naturally I was going to auditions, doing extra work etc… (that process is a whole nother story to be shared another time) but I knew I needed a job where I could make some stable money. While doing extra work I was thinking about how I had really enjoyed casting while I was at CCM so I decided to pursue that. My first step of boldness: I decided I was going to go into the casting company I was doing extra work through and just straight up ask for a job or an internship - which is totally not like me to do! Luckily I did some research first and found a posting on Craigslist for an internship at the Casting Company I am currently at. I contacted them, set up and interview and the rest was God. As far as how I got the full time gig - really it was getting to the point where the part time - non-paid - internship was not cutting it - I needed to pay the bills - I needed something to do during the days I was not interning….so I hit my knees - I prayed all day as I was cleaning or doing whatever - randomly through out the day I would find myself on my knees again crying out to God (I did not understand what was going on inside - I was so restless and… I don’t even know). Again I decided to be bold and was going to ask if there was any possibility for a full time position at the company. The next day I found out the full time intern was leaving and I was offered her position. The Lord was so faithful to put me where I was needed and in an environment that I needed to be in. It turned out that my boss is a Christian as well as all the interns I was working with at the time. The interns and I started praying together in the mornings and we saw the company really grow in success. I have developed some really good relationships both professionally as well as Spiritually. One of my closest friends in the area is my Co-worker Suzanne. It is great to have someone to be challenged with and grow with on a daily basis.
I have so much more to share about life, about balance, about the process of transition, and so much about the business…but I will save all of that for another post(s).

Until Next time…
Trusting Him,

    There is a lot of commercials and industrials in the DC/Baltimore area, and we also seem to be getting more film. “The Wire” was the big TV show out here but that just ended but we still have America’s Most Wanted! There is a lot of production work out here but I am not quite sure how much of it is just TV.

  3. Wow the Lord is so faithful I’m awstruck and don’t even know where to start with my story. Your story is even more conformation to me about the lord wanting to do a quick work in these last days. I’ve experienced 48 hr. Answered prayer and even same day answers. I know God is up to something big and quick. I can say since I hooked up with god tv the answers have came much faster and my confusion is gone and I have alot of clarity. I have a long way to go but the lord said to me run your race jump over the hurduls and just keep going. Everything is changing around me and I love it. My faith has never been so strong and stired up. You keep on a you may run that company soon. All the glory to GOD he’s big than we really relize he just is GOD! Lorie

I had physically & emotionly given up and was very physically ill and on lots of meds 23 pills a day all that’s for another day. I’m just wanting to stay focused on where I’m at today & what the Lord is doing in me and the body of christ right now. It’s amazing and well their just are not words to describe it so once again I’m awastruck. To GOD be the glory and praise! Lorie

  8. It’s all by the grace of God that I am where I am today. It is a process and I’ve got a long way to go but I feel so alive and forgiven. Their is freedom from condemnation in the word of God it is a light for our path. We must seek him with all our heart and we will find him. We will make mistakes but all we have to do is repent and ask for forgiveness and trust him. He is faithful to put us right back on track. Just call on Jesus he’s the way the truth and the light. All I can do is praise him and thank him for what he is doing in me & trust him. He’s is awsome because I was a mess and their was no earthly help for me. But bye his grace & mercy I know who I am today an that is a child of the most high GOD. Please if you don’t know him just call on that name JESUS what have you got to lose. I can tell you a dying world! The LORD is drawing a dividing line and it’s time to pick a side and get on it and stand on the word of GOD! May the Lord Bless you a keep you strong. Lorie

  9. I have a key for you guys after my father died in 03. Well why he was dying I was abel to spend the last couple of months with him and I chereshed that time because we never really had a relationship after my mother & him divorced. We really got to know each other and the LORD taught me about forgivness. Wow a painful process it still brings tears to my eyes but I was abel to forgive him. I had always felt abandoned by him and unloved and was very angry, hurt and confussed and spent most of my life running with the world. I tryed lots of things to medicate pain and lonleness. Nothing worked and I almost destroyed myself in the process. But when my father was on his death bed I screamed at GOD and said if you are going to heal him do it now are take him home now and about an hour later he passed on in my arms. I’ll never forget that moment my oldest son & my uncle were right there with us and he open one eye and tears ran down his face then he took two more breaths and I told him I would be ok and that is was ok for him to go. So you see we have to forgive others If we want to experience GODS forgiveness it’s crucial it’s a key. Well then the lord really started workin on me. I had known about GOD from an early age I had a praying grandmother who was so very faithful to the LORD. I watched her read her bible and pray ever morning and at bed time she never complained about anything she just knew exactly who she was. And she didn’t take no crap from anybody she was never rude just right to the point in a loving way. And when I was about 11 yrs. Old I prayed to receive the lord but I did not know him. I was a very messed up little girl my parents divorced when I was about 6 yrs. And dad was my hero. When they divorced I did not see him much he was fighting his own demons. My mother remarried and life went own. I was melested by a cousin at about 8 or 9 I don’t remember the exact age I have moved on from their. But all these things really messed up my thinking I seen alot of vilolence between mom and dad . My father was a violent drunk and my mother was a scared little girl. I had one younger little brother who meant the world to me he had asthma very bad when he was younger. I was his watcher he would have an attack his lips would turn blue and down he would go. I new where every inhaler in the house was I was scared to be to far from him for many yrs. Well back to me asking the lord into my heart I did not know him but he new me. Well after my father passed I got to know GOD and he is awsome ,trustworthy, faithful and full of love and patience. About two to three weeks after my father passed on I was todally delieverd from 23 pills a day and felt better than I had ever felt in my life. Another key here he detoxed my body I could see the truth and see in the spirit realm. Wow that was scary because I did not know my bible but I had read revelation. I’m going to stop here please read the word of god it’s got mysterys of what’s really going on today. It’s the answer today ,tommorow & forever it’s always been the answer. You have to renew your mind and only the word of GOD does that. LORIE

  10. I want to thank Steven Hill and the 700 hundred club . In 97 towards the end of the year I had just gottin several bad diagnoses lupus, depression & fibromyalgia. I also had just had my last child in july of that year and wasn’t really abel to care for him or myself to the best of my ability. Also my marriage was a mess and had three other children who needed me. I was desperate and started praying to the god my grandmother knew the great jahova. I had reached out to the 700 hundred club yrs earlier and was a 700 hundred club member but I did not know GOD. I called the 700 hundred club one night desperate for GOD and talked to a counseler (angel) I was told to go to brownsville fla to the revival and to let steven hill pray for me. I called a babysitter took one son with me and to pensicola we went. Wow that was the beginning of this process to radical transformation. When I look back of my life to this point that is were & when things really got going (turned upside down shaken and started bringing my issues to the surface) steven you changed my life and started a process in me that continues to this day all because you were obediant to JESUS. Thank you and may the lord bess you with health overflowing and the ability to change nations more radically than your beginning. You are more awsome than you could ever imagine you are a tresure to the kingdom of GOD. You are dangerous to the prince of the airways you go! May GOD bless you with abundant wisdom, dicernment, understanding and a revalation of what he is doing in these last days. I can’t thank you enough for your touch on my life and my sons. I do ask for your prayer in my familys life we are going through many trials. Thank god for obediant people like Steven Hill & Pat Robertson the LORDS children. Thank GOD for GOD TV who is connecting dots to this last hour move of GOD. You guys are definitely a vessel for bringing heaven to earth my the LORD continue to abundantley bless you with everything you need to bring more than 1 billion souls to his kingdom but to also bring his kingdom to the face of our GOD given planet! All my love your sister in CHRIST Lorie

  11. I’ve got a wonderful praise report for you at god tv when I sent in my original pray reqest I revealed my circumstances to Jesus and wendy and my situation was critical only the LORD could bring results ( taken advantage of by law enforcment,lawyer, federal gov, health care , religion and the list goes on major victom of curruption and unjust system) I’m sure GODS children can relate. Since then what god has done is noting less than a miracle after miracle. The lord said to me months ago I’m gonna get them all this time and bring healing. When the lord brings healing he first reveals the problems so man can see the situation and relize the need for a savior. When this disaster started in the gulf of mexico it’s was very frigtening for many people this was a way of life for millions of people and my family. Their was darkness all around I had a
    revalation two days before this disaster of fire and explosions and a ring of fire around our children and was not sure what this meant but was told to pass it on so I did and then the LORD had me go to destin to start a healing process in my self and my family. so I was obediant on the way over things were so dark and you could just since evil in the atmoshere this was just days after the rig exploded in the gulf and their was a mysterious kind of low presure starting to blow right in the area of the oil spill and were the guys needed to be assesing the sitiation. Mass confusion engulfed the atmosphere as well as this strange weather and evil darkness it’s was just weird. I had no idea what GOD was up to but I trusted him and relied on him for all direction he said do you best be obediant and I will handel the supernatural. So I prayed revealed to my family what the lord was saying to me and was obediant to what he told me to do. Wow it’s so diffucult to explain what took place it was just god at work when people don’t try to control the situation but just let god work and be obediant to do what he ask it’s amazing what he will do. Well before we left the darkness had lifted and the wind had laid down. The lord had me call the help lines and tell the ones in charge to repent hold prayer meetings and pray for wisdom knowledge and understanding and most of all a revalation of christ. The last day we were their I had so much confirmation from the lord for prayers I had prayed and we saw millions upon millions of baby shrimp or squid in the waters I’m not sure which. But the lord said to me I’ve got the small things and the big things under control and I can restore this gulf to life more abundantley than it was before just trust me. Now three months later after millions of gallons of oil spilled into the gulf and mass confusion on the part of our corrupt government system that so don’t work. The LORD GOD has saved the day and because bp was faithful and trusted the lord in spit of government interferiance ( please over look my spelling in writing in a hurry have kids calling) look what the lord has done it defiys all human logic but our gulf is almost completly clean. The lord never wanted bp bankrupt he just

    comment-bottom
  12. wanted them to be accountable for their actions and they were and they were willing to clean up their mess and compensate the workers who lost jobs for this brief inconvenience and have helped the ones who have been effected and allowed us the ones who lost jobs to help in clean up so bp has also helped us help ourselves all in three months wow I’m not trying to be negative but that’s more than our corrupt government system has ever done and it’s been around how long? So a word to the ones running this currupt system repent and do it now for the well being of the people you were elected to help (serve) wether you like it or not you are servants we all are we are gods servants we were never put here to rule over people but to help one another and to serve our lord and savior. So please spare yourselves from the wrath to come and it’s coming or god would have to appoligize to soddom & gomorra and that’s not going to happen. Mr.President please repent the lord died for you also we the people are counting on you to step to the plate and do what is best for the people the lord will help you do the right thing you have the position already we the people are praying for you and are here to help turn this thing around no blame but the system does not work it’s tearing the heart of america right in half and causing you guys to be at each others throat. We need to heal our GOD given country not rip it down the middel. Please seek the lords wisdom to do this not mans. I love my nation and my brothers and sisters in christ lets all pray for healing in AMERICA we see the disfunction LORD! LORD PLEASE HEAL OUR LAND & transfer the wealth of the wicked to the rightous so we can take our AMERICA back for you LORD! THE GLORY TO YOU JESUS CHRIST

  13. I need to correct my first statement the lord new my circumstances I did not have to reveal anything to him I just had to turn the situation over to him and let him help me overcome my situation and I was also a victom of me and my bad choices I made. I’m so thankful the lord died for me and all. Thank you lord for being my savior when I called on you. You have always been their it was me that turned away and I thank you for being patient and faithful to forgive me. All my praises to you. Their are not enough words to thank you LORD! Thank you god tv for being faithful servants to our LORD&SAVIOR!

  15. We have to stand for freedom and truth and do our best to help each other. I know how difficult it can be I’ve been harrassed, threatened, lied about, blacklisted, intimiadated and even shot at with my youngest child in the car with me. I have my phones tapped people listening to private conversations in my home. Everything I do I have to pray it through it took three trys just to get a alarm system in my home I’ve got people playing with my info on the computer. It took four months just to find a DR willing to help me get to the bottom of what’s going on with my health. My husband just got a bad report from his DR. We are out of work due to disaster in gulf and my husband has not been paid yet for cleanup work so we are broke with bills pilling up and late charges on top of that and three children still at home to provide for. One of our children we just had to put in rehab. So I know life is not fair and it’s difficult but we have to stand for what is right for the next generation to have a fighting chance. Our children are watching us and counting on us to make a difference after all the don’t listen to us but the do what they see us do. We have to show them how to stand for what is right and just. LORD I will do whatever you ask me to do I know no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Thank you LORD JESUS for keeping me safe. I could us lots of prayer for my family and me. Thank you god tv for being their for me you guys have made a huge difference in my life and the life of my family my prayers are being answered and breakthroughs happening weekly. I know the enemy had such a strong hold on my family for many years and I knew it was not going to be easy and I know it’s going to take a fight thank you for standing with me and being my back up I owe you guys my life and would give my life for my family & JESUS! ALL MY LOVE GOD TV
