Unconditional = Motivational

I’ve been on a Isaiah 43:18 and Philippians 3:13 kick lately. See, as an adoptive parent, I’ve watched my son struggle with his past. The “why me” thing, and things that have happened to him cause him to seemingly get stuck in a rut. And, it’s not just him… sometimes we all struggle with working with bad hand we’ve been dealt, but God says we can all rise above. And when we do, our victory can be our testimony!

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to pre-screen a movie called Unconditional featuring the very yummy Michael Ealy (Think Like A Man, 2 Fast 2 Furious) and very talented Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 50 First Dates).

What I didn’t expect was to become emotionally attached to the message: You can use the pain of your past to heal the pain of others. This movie is inspired by true events in the life of  “Papa” Joe Bradford who helps at risk communities in Nashville, Tennessee through his “Elijah’s Heart” ministry. Additionally, Unconditional should be used as a ministry tool to get others motivated to make a difference in their own backyard. As a matter of fact, the movie can get you involved with organizations that could use your past for someone else’s future: Unconditional The Movie

What person doesn’t want forgiveness, reconciliation… a second chance (for some of us third, forth and fifth chance!)!

Check out the trailer and make sure you see the movie which opens this Friday at a theater near you!


I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
