Patricia Heaton Encourages Followers to Trust in Christ, Not Politicians

By Movieguide® Staff

Actress Patricia Heaton recently took to social media to point people to Christ amid the midterm elections taking place this November.

The EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND star is open about her faith, and encouraged her followers to trust the Lord regardless of the election results.

“For those of you who are Christians and who feel disappointed or despairing of the election results, it is a blessing to be reminded that our security does not rest in men or governments, which are finite and will eventually crumble, but in God alone who is ever sustaining,” she wrote in a recent Tweet.

Movieguide® previously reported on how Heaton’s faith helped her on her journey to sobriety:

Actress Patricia Heaton recently announced that she celebrated three years of “freedom from alcohol.”

“It’s July when we celebrate our nation’s freedom. Also celebrating three years of freedom from alcohol for me,” the EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND actress said in a video posted to Twitter.

“So, just wanted to share that with you. And message me if any of you are thinking about doing that, any of you are doing that now and need some encouragement or anything at all. Have a great day,” she added.

The 63-year-old actress, who was on a hike in the video, revealed that she not only quit alcohol but now focuses on her fitness and health.

“I miss it terribly, but at the end of the day, I feel better,” Heaton told Parade Magazine. “I noticed that I was looking forward every night to cocktails. And if I happened to go to lunch, I might have a glass of wine or Prosecco.”

“I think it’s something about your children leaving the house and the things that used to anchor you are no longer there,” Heaton added at the time. “You’re a little bit at sea, and so you reach for the bottle to dull the uncertainty. I sensed that a bit with myself. … I’ve stopped [drinking], and my life has improved significantly. My kids are in their mid-20s and I’ll probably be in my 70s by the time I have grandchildren. I want to be healthy for them.”
