Danica McKellar Shares Why Joseph’s Story Resonates With Her: ‘God Was With Him’
By Movieguide® Contributor
In a new video for Great American Family, Danica McKellar is giving fans an update on her resolution to read the entire Bible this year, and sharing a story that has been resonating with her.
“I’ve been reading the Bible and I am on track to finish the Bible this year,” the actress shared. “I’m very excited!”
McKellar also shared that she’s been following along with a podcast, THE BIBLE RECAP, that friend and fellow actress Candace Cameron Bure recommended to her.
“This is the first time I’ve read the Bible,” McKellar went on. “I’d read the Gospels before, but never the Old Testament…Right now, I’m in Leviticus which, I’ll admit, is a little dry, but that’s okay. It’s a lot of details, but it’s actually kind of fascinating.”
She then revealed the story that has “stuck” with her the most: the story of Joseph.
McKellar explained that, even after being sold into slavery and imprisoned, Joseph always “rose to the top.”
“His people recognized ‘Oh, this guy is kind of special. Let’s put him in charge of more things,” she said. “I just imagine him doing whatever he needed to do, joyfully…God was with him, he felt it. This idea that, no matter what we’re doing, we can do it with true joy if we are connected to our relationship with God is incredible!”
McKellar talked about the mindset in another Great American Family video. Movieguide® previously reported:
Great American Family star Danica McKellar recently shared a video about how viewers can change their mindset from “have to” to “get to.”
“I highly recommend a handwritten to-do list,” she said in a recent video from Great American Community. “At least, for me, it really helps. I get overwhelmed with all of the things I’m attempting to accomplish in this lifetime [so] I really find it useful.”
McKellar added that she loves “physically” checking things off her lists and, even though she can make a to-do list on her computer, she prefers paper — “It feels so much better to handwrite a to-do list!”
The actress then shared a way she’s changed how she views the tasks in her life — instead of drawing up a to-do list, she calls it a get-to-do list.
“[It’s] so corny, but you know what?” McKellar laughed. “It made me smile.”
She added that the phrase is true; we all get to do things that many other people might dream of doing.
“There are plenty of people on this planet who wouldn’t be able to accomplish the things on your to-do list,” McKellar pointed out. “[There are] so many things we take for granted.”
