    These 12 Celebrities Who Have Opened Up About Faith Will Inspire You This Holy Week

    How notable is it that these stars don't let fame and fortune eclipse faith? Incredibly, in our books. 

    When it comes to our celebrity idols, we don't often associate them with spirituality so everytime someone does openly talk about their relationship with God, offers a prayer, or shares an insightful lesson on religion, it makes them all the more admirable.

    Blessed with a killer combo of looks, talent, and influence, these primetime stars fulfill our ambitions of success in almost every way, yet manage to take the time to slow down, quiet their minds, and thank a heavenly being for bringing them to where they are or depend on God to keep them going down the right path. 

    They make an important point to reflect on this Holy Week, Christian or otherwise: faith plays a big part in helping us keep our lives in check today and beyond, and besides, nurturing it brings only good things—how can anyone not want something as inspiring as that?
