DeVon Franklin Releases New Audio Book About Women He Was ‘Blessed’ To Have In His Life

By Movieguide® Contributor

DeVon Franklin just released a new audio book, “It Takes a Woman,” about the important women in his life and how they’ve shaped him. 

“I wanted to make sure, as a man, that I was appropriately thanking and displaying, and allowing people to hear from the women in my life,” Franklin told CBN. “I wouldn’t be the man I am if it wasn’t for my mother, my grandmother, and my grandmother’s seven sisters. I really wanted to do this because it’s one thing for me as a man to say what the women have done, it’s another thing for someone to be able to hear from them.”

He continued, “This book gives the listener a chance to hear directly from these dynamic, powerful, and amazing women that I’m so blessed to have in my life.”

This isn’t the only exciting project Franklin has been working on. Movieguide® previously reported on his upcoming role in JESUS REVOLUTION:

DeVon Franklin is the latest star set to join the cast of the new faith-based movie, JESUS REVOLUTION. Franklin’s role in the Erwin brothers’ movie marks the producer and bestselling author’s first on-camera role in a project. 

Franklin joins a star-studded cast made up of Kelsey Grammer, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Joel Courtney, Anna Grace Barlow, Jonathan Roumie, Ally Ioannides, Julia Campbell, Nic Bishop and Jolie Jenkins.

Director Jon Erwin spoke about his excitement at Franklin’s role in JESUS REVOLUTION, saying, “Anyone who knows DeVon knows he is one of the most respected and successful producers in the industry, but they also know his devotion and commitment to inspiring people through entertainment.” 

“It is part of his DNA, and we are privileged that someone who is usually behind the scenes has graciously agreed to step in front of the camera for us for this important role and this story,” Erwin concluded. 

Franklin is equally excited to take part in the production: “I was excited and nervous when they approached me to act, yet once I read the script, I knew I had to be part of bringing this powerful true story to the screen.”
