"Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham revealed early July that she is set to star in two movies as a Christian actress, an announcement that some are having a hard time reconciling with the release of her sex tape last year, sex toys business ventures, and her continuation of writing erotic novels.
"I will be acting in two movies, and I'm kind of staying closer to roles that are Christian-based," Abraham said during her July 2014 release of her erotic novel, Celebrity Sex Tape in the Making. Moreover, the 23 year old former "Teen Mom" star told Us Weekly that said she won't be doing any more sex tapes, but if she does it will be after marriage with her husband.
"I think the healthiest way for me to continue being Farrah and who I am is to continue writing erotic novels," she said. "Being so sexy, I think that's for when I get married. And if I ever do another sex tape, I'm probably going to do it with my husband, and you can just celebrate marriage with me."
While some thinks that she may be turning for good from the sexualized path, Abraham declined to reveal more details about what those Christians films are or her roles in these faith-based movies.
Abraham sat down with Starcasm in June for an interview, in which she gave updates on her relationships with her daughter's grandfather (deceased ex-boyfriend's father), and with her parents, her lessons from Couples Therapy, business ventures, including opening her first restaurant in Austin, producing sex toys, common misconceptions about her, her daughter Sophia's development, and her faith and plans on writing a Christian parenting book.
"I have to say faith is a big part of my life. I'm not perfect that's just life. There really is no perfect Christian," she said, adding that she goes to church as often as she can and have "great" Christian friends, who are not those "who say they're Christian and then act like other."
Moreover, Abraham described how she came to faith and her idea of writing a Christian parenting book; however, her idea may fall short as her values do not appear to align completely with the Bible's teaching on purity and renouncing acts of all sinful natures.
"My parents didn't really help me get any closer to God, it was my own choice and I just see a lot of good things happening and I only want good things for everybody else. So if I could say that through a type of Christian parenting book, I think that's something that wouldn't hurt them, it would help them and their children. It would give them a kind of support and guide to use throughout their journey in life together and I would just be happy to share that.
While the single mom has good intentions with her ideas, Abraham would need to first understand the proper meaning of faith and God's truth. With her new role in the Christian film and genuine Christian friends, she can be brought into a closer relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only true and lasting source that satisfies our deepest longings.
Two years ago, the "Teen Mom" star admitted to In Touch that she had contemplated suicide, because of severe depression and feeling "overwhelmed" two years after her daughter Sophia's birth and the loss of her child's dad, Derek Underwood, who was killed in a car accident when Farrah was pregnant.
Before she was diagnosed with clinical depression, Farrah said she tried coping with her unhappiness by drinking and using cocaine and marijuana. However, she said that she was able to get "back on track" with therapy and medication.
"I realized I was being selfish," she said about her suicidal ideas. "The most important thing is making sure that [Sophia's] well taken care of - how am I going to do that if I'm dead?"
On a deeper look, the young but restless TV celebrity was raised in a family where her dad cheated on her mother and she said they fought continuously, which eventually led to her parent's divorce. Her interviews also revealed how she had struggled to deal with the backlashes following the release of her sex tape, which she said she had originally plan to make the film just for herself.
Nevertheless, her announcements in recent months of writing a Christian parenting book and the most recent unveiling of her role in two Christian-based movies point toward a possible turn in her life's direction. While the price that Christ paid at calvary was not cheap, His atoning sacrifice is sufficient for all, which applies not only to Abraham but to all of humanity. For it is by His wounds that we are healed and redeemed.
As Abraham revealed her plans to expand her fields of writing, she expresses her goal to grow herself as an author, according to Starcasm.
"I want to be very good at my imagination and then fiction writing just something I'm pretty proud of now."
Christians should pray for her transformation and let's hope her friends can become that positive influence in her life.
