How 'Miracles from Heaven' Transformed Jennifer Garner


Actress Jennifer Garner says her life was transformed while working on an upcoming movie called "Miracles from Heaven."

The movie tells the true story of Annabel Beam, a little girl with an incurable digestive disease, and the faith struggles of her parents as they dealt with the devastating impact on their daughter.

But as the title and trailer for the film reveal something truly amazing happens, healing little Annabel.

Garner told CBN News that after she met Christy Beam, the mother of Annabel, Beam's faith had a profound impact on her personally.

And while preparing for the role, Garner wanted confirmation of Annabel's healing from the doctor who worked with Annabel.

Garner told CBN News the doctor confirmed to her that the little girl's amazing healing could truly be described as a miracle.

Through that series of events, and during the making of the film, God touched Garner's heart. She told an audience at T.D. Jakes' church The Potter's House that the Beam family's faith was a big part of that transformation.

CBN News Reporter Efrem Graham confirmed Garner was clearly engaged in Sunday worship during a visit to The Potter's House.

Garner says she has been taking her own daughters with her as she has started going back to church.

Those comments came during a question and answer session with members of The Potter's House, following a private screening of the film.
