Back to the Basics: Activities & Ways to Simplify Life

By Marissa Zimmet on August 10, 2022

In this day and age, it's hard not to get too caught up in a season of busyness that we forget to enjoy of some life's simple things. 

An Unlikely Angel” stars Janie, a toymaker for a big-time company in New York. She spends most of her days being busy – tackling the next project at work, competing for the top spot at her company, and seeking validation in the form of things she can add to her resume. But is this how we’re truly called to live? Is this the kind of lifestyle that is going to lead to our salvation?

WATCH NOW: The trailer for the new Pure Flix Original movie "An Unlikely Angel" is now available! Janie is a workaholic who is falling apart at the thought of becoming a first-time mom. She whispers a small prayer for help and it’s answered in a very unlikely way when an angel intervenes and fast forwards her life. Will her second chance change how she approaches life? Janie is lucky enough to be given a second chance, but will she change before it’s too late?
