I was born and raised just across the bay from Tampa, Florida (Go, Lightning!) and attended college at ECU in Greenville, North Carolina. I am a devout Catholic and am active in my parish in Charlotte, North Carolina. Outside of work, I love to run, hike, watch movies and hockey, and spend time with my dog, Rose, and my cat, Toasty, who are both rescues.

What Does The Bible Say About Change? Scriptures on Change To Help With Times of Transition

By Marissa Zimmet on 6/27/22 4:00 AM

As the old saying goes, change is the only constant in life. From big life changes, like switching careers or becoming a parent, to small adjustments like a new haircut, change can make us afraid and anxious.

We’re often fearful because change can be out of our control, unsure of what’s in store for the future. Luckily, as Christians, we know that one constant source of encouragement is the Bible. We can turn to scripture for Bible verses about change in order to find comfort and peace during times of transition.

Father’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s a time to celebrate the men in our lives for all they’ve done in our relationships with them, whether that be as a partner, father figures, or heads of the family. While we prepare to celebrate dads, we also take time to recognize and appreciate the unique bonds we have with them.

5 Prayers for the Dying: How to Pray for Your Loved Ones While Grieving

By Marissa Zimmet on 6/6/22 6:32 AM

Tragedy and death are unfortunate and inescapable human experiences. But, we can find hope in scripture and in prayers. That's why we put together a list of prayers for the dying, prayers for those in hospice care and prayers for the family members left behind. We hope that these prayers give you hope, comfort and facilitate the grieving process when experiencing loss.

For more encouragement and comfort when grieving the loss of a loved one, in addition to these prayers for the dying, we hope you'll watch the newest AFFIRM original and Pure Flix exclusive "Going Home" streaming June 2. "Going Home" is a show about loss, but it's equally about hope that has been described as "uplifting, lighthearted and healing."

10 Bible Verses About Death When Grieving a Loved One

By Marissa Zimmet on 6/2/22 12:00 AM

There’s no denying the death of a loved one is hard. Even Jesus wept when he lost his friend Lazarus (John 11:35). For healing and hope in the Lord’s resurrection for our eternal life, we can turn to scripture to help us process these emotions.

While we pray that these Bible verses about death comfort you, Pure Flix is also proud to stream an exclusive new series about hope and healing through loss. "Going Home," a show that follows an inspiring team of nurses who help guide patients and loved ones on the ultimate journey to their forever home, is now available.
