How to Take a Leap of Faith with DeMark Thompson

33m | Nov 11, 2023

In this episode of Film for Impact I talk with L.A. actor DeMark Thompson about his journey from working for the federal government to taking a leap to pursue his dreams of acting. We also talk about how journeying with his mother through a terminal cancer diagnosis catapulted him to take THE leap of faith. I know that you will be inspired by this episode if you are on a similar journey and feel a calling in your life. Sometimes we need to just take that leap of faith even when it may not make logical sense. It helps to hear the stories of others who have listened to God's voice and taken action and that is exactly what we get in this episode with DeMark. We will also get a chance to hear the behind-the-scenes journey of his bid to play John Stewart the Green Lantern! Keep your eyes out for DeMark Thompson!

He has a purpose driven life and a promise to keep and has come too far to turn back now.
