“I am very excited to be a part of this special event,” says Chonda
Pierce. “Jennifer’s story will truly captivate audiences, as viewers
will feel like they are a part of the story while they go on this
journey with the characters.”

Join Jennifer as she shares her story, exploring her deepest fears and
most life-changing discoveries, and recreates the private garden where
she first opened her heart to The Divine. With guidance from her
humorous guardian angel (Chonda Pierce) Jenn journeys through a human
understanding of the unknown, and renders it ultimately knowable through
the inspired inner voices she believes are available to us all.

Featuring character voiceover performances from Emmy-winner and Today
Show host Kathie Lee Gifford, Academy Award-winner™ Louis Gossett, Jr.,
and popular faith comedienne Chonda Pierce, this feature-length
professional stage show will use groundbreaking three-dimensional
projection technology to fuse live-action and animation, creating a
unique and immersive experience on the big screen.

“We are thrilled to partner with Eakin Films to bring Jennifer’s work to
the big screen. With such a talented cast, this event is sure to
entertain on a variety of emotional levels,” said Fathom Events Vice
President of Programming Kymberli Frueh.

Frank Eakin, president of Eakin Films, said, “Working with Fathom to
present the first-ever author 3D cinema event of its kind has been
exhilarating. Jennifer’s authenticity and insights into the hope and
healing that result from Divine encounters, together with the stage
experience created by our 3D pioneers, deliver a unique and moving
experience for faith audiences.”
