because-of-gracia

June 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Moriah Peters knows about standing up for chastity. When the award-winning actress auditioned for American Idol in 2010, she was criticized for saying she was saving her first kiss for marriage. She recalled one of the celebrity panelists telling her, “I think you’re trying to be too perfect. You need to go into the world and make mistakes. ” Another advised her to go out and kiss a boy because it would make her feel “sexier.”

“That was God closing the door [on further participation in the show],” said Peters. As she left, she prayed, “God, why did I just spend five months of my senior year praying for this when I could have been studying for Finals?!”

In a wonderful example of art imitating life, the now-married Peters stars in “Because of Grácia,” a film about four high school seniors. The teens’ different takes on sexuality transform their lives. Pro-life, pro-chastity arguments get a fair hearing.

“I play Grácia,” Peters told Upliftv. “She is a very strong and central character. She is a girl with convictions. But the thing that I love about her is that she really represents her name well.”

The film, which will be released in September, won two awards at the 2017 Life Fest Film Festival. It is based on a 2001 play called “G Factor” by author and director Tom Simes. The native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, was a high school teacher for 27 years and has seen Christian kids becoming increasingly marginalized by secular humanism. “I felt like they were becoming almost undercover Christians,” Simes told Upliftv. “And so I wanted to create a story that really resonated with them and would lift them up and help them have a voice.”
