For Lidstone, the Bible is more than just a religious text; it is a profound testament to God’s boundless love and humanity’s enduring search for meaning.

“It’s not easy to read. And there’s a lot of questions I think we have as modern people that are very difficult to fight with and wrestle with,” she said.

“But I think that’s part of what God is — He wants you to seek that out through Him. He wants you to ask those questions. He wants you to go through your seasons of doubting Him and come to the end of it, hopefully with, ‘I love You, and I trust You because You first loved me.’”

As Lidstone continues in entertainment, her journey testifies to faith’s transformative power and underscores storytelling’s profound impact on fostering spiritual growth and human connection.

In each role, she’s committed to projects inspiring hope, igniting faith, and illuminating timeless human truths.
