Jennifer Garner renewed faith after starring in 'Miracles from Heaven', takes whole family to church

Early this month, Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner, 44, brought her three children along with estranged husband, Ben Affleck, to a church in Pacific Palisades, California. Garner was also spotted holding her own golden-paged Bible to the Sunday mass.

Garner was raised in a strict Methodist household. She even previously joked on that aspect saying that she was "just a step away from being Amish."

Coming out of the church with Garner was her three kids. Her four-year-old son, Samuel, was seen all dressed up in a ninja costume with two plastic swords sticking out from his back. Her daughters, six-year-old Seraphina and 10-year-old Violet were dressed in casual clothes just like their mother. In addition, Violet was also holding her own Bible.

After starring in a Christian drama, "Miracles from Heaven," earlier this year, Garner reportedly renewed her Christian faith.

"I was talking to my kids about the movie and they said, 'Mom, you don't take us to church,'" and we went that Sunday," Jennifer said in an interview.

"And they went [on that day] without me. That decision was a direct gift from this movie and for that I'm very grateful," she continued.

Ever since the Christian movie, Garner and her kids have been devout churchgoers.

Garner revealed that she "grew up going to church every Sunday," and along with her ex-husband "took [her] kids home to West Virginia to be baptized in [her] family's church."

"Is that weird in Hollywood?" she jokingly asked during a press conference in Dallas, Texas to promote "Miracles from Heaven."

She also said that that her sharing of her faith with her kids was a "great gift of this film."

"There was something about doing this film and talking to my kids about it and realizing that they were looking for the structure of church every Sunday," she said in the Dallas press interview.
