I’d like to share with you my passion and the next steps of my journey. Please pray with me as I move forward in faith.
My main passion apart from loving the Lord full-time is to see the entertainment industry/ Hollywood rocked with the realization of the love of Jesus. God has put a burning within my heart to, first of all, PRAY for Hollywood, and second of all, work IN Hollywood (or the entertainment industry in general).
My dream is to create media that is thought provoking, pure in heart, and does a great job pointing to Jesus in a way that those who don’t follow Him can relate. Another dream is to be a part of relational ministry in Hollywood offering support to those caught in the trappings of the industry.
I just completed my Master’s of Science in Entertainment Business through Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. I learned some excellent, practical business principles that will propel me forward in the building of the dream. I constructed a business plan for a reality television production company that maybe will see the light of day one day. Time will tell.
In the fall, I will pursue additional media and ministry training through the International House of Prayer (IHOP) and their media school, the Forerunner Media Institute (FMI). I just applied for the school and should know in the next month if I’m accepted. I see this school as a foundational opportunity to be grounded in the Word, prayer, and also learn from some incredibly savvy media professionals.
Another way that I’m pursuing my dreams and passion is building a business that helps others reach their health and fitness goals.
I’m helping promote a health challenge that is absolutely ROCKING North America. It’s called the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge, through an amazing company, ViSalus Sciences. Teri, Julie and I started the challenge while on tour together, and are continuing it over the next three months. It’s a great way to stay accountable and also have fun!
In helping others with their goals, I am able to build some income that will go directly towards my media ventures, including school in the fall. Take a look at my website (mollyptaszek.bodybyvi.com) and see if this might be something you’d enjoy as well! A bonus, you very easily get your products for free. Can’t beat free!
I began my pursuit of the industry back in 2002 and it’s been quite a road thus far. I have had to learn over and over to surrender the dreams and passions to Him, and trust that He is far more interested in me reaching them than I ever could.
It just looks a lot different that I would have imagined.
This past decade has been a training ground for the Lord to test, refine and mold into the woman and daughter HE desires. I can try to run ahead of Him, but it ain’t gonna work, sister! I’ve learned it’s best to go on His clock.
Also, I’ve learned that enemy does indeed like to steal, kill, and destroy.
I have to be on guard with my passion and dreams realizing that the enemy would do all that he could to get me off course. It’s critical that I stay so utterly connected to the Father so I can walk out HIS orders and HIS timing, rather than getting perpetually slimmed by the enemy.
It’s so true that the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, while the Lord comes to bring life and life ABUNDANT!
PLEASE PRAY ME AND SUPPORT MY JOURNEY!
To keep up with my journey in the coming months I’ll periodically blog about a couple things – my journey of pursuing media and Hollywood; and health and wellness. I promise it will be exciting! Here’s the bare bones site if you’d like to add it to your RSS/Google reader/etc. – Health, Hollywood, and Jesus.
- Please pray for me that I walk with tunnel vision on the Lord and His plans, not mine.
- Pray that I will walk in full confidence and authority of my identity as the royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) and daughter of Most High King.
- Pray that I hear clearly and do only what the Father asks of me.
- Pray for divine connections within the industry who also have the same heart for the Kingdom.
- Pray for my health business to launch well so that people can be free and healthy to walk out their kingdom assignments, and so that I can fund my kingdom dreams as well as others! I want to GIVE, GIVE, GIVE!!! Remember that for future reference, all you missionaries out there…with the fruits of the wellness business, I will sow right back into the Kingdom!
- Lastly, Pray for Hollywood!!! If you’re interested in receiving occasional updates from one of my favorite Hollywood ministries, check out Hollywood Prayer Network.
Thank you and many blessings to all who read this!
