Screenwriter puts God first

Randall Wallace, known for his films Braveheart, Heaven is For Real, Pearl Harbor and The Man in the Iron Mask, said he was unsuccessful in life until he asked God to help him.

After he asked God for guidance, Wallace went from jobless to becoming one of Hollywood's most well-known screenwriters

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - "Each of us has to come to terms with what we believe makes life worth living," Wallace told The Church Boys in a podcast.

His films were driven by his understanding of God's plan for his life. Wallace grew up with a strong Christian foundation and later realized he "wasn't going to write what Hollywood seemed to want ... [he] was going to write what God had made [him] to write."

"I felt I was either going to give up all of the hopes that I had, my sense of calling. That I was going to give up what I believed I had been made to do, and submit to the ways of the world, or I was not," said Wallace.

The screenwriter decided to use his talent to share stories God wanted him to tell. He wanted to write "the kind of story that gave me goosebumps, that brought tears to my eyes, that brought laughter to my lungs and joy to my heart."

That was when his career took off. He admitted that a good movie starts with a gripping story. To inspire others to find their story, and to live their best lives, he wrote a book titled Living the Braveheart Life: Finding the Courage to Follow Your Heart, which is currently available online and at bookstores.
