Renowned actress Melissa Joan Hart, best known for her iconic role in “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” recently opened up about her deepened faith and a profound spiritual encounter she described as her “born-again” moment in an interview with the Christian Post.
Hart revealed that her understanding of the Holy Spirit and the Trinity came into focus during a Bible study session. She shared, “One day, I just felt it and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s the Holy Spirit talking to me. I get it now,’… Like a lightning bolt just hit me.” This revelation helped her grasp the concept of the Trinity better.
Her father-in-law’s explanation of the Trinity as being similar to his roles as a father, son, brother, and uncle further aided her comprehension. Hart expressed how these insights transformed her spiritual journey.
“My father-in-law once said to me, too, about the Trinity — because I was struggling to understand that — he said, ‘Well, I’m a father, but I’m also a son, and I’m also a brother, and I’m also an uncle. And he said, that’s how God can be all these things, so that hit me too,” Hart added.
The actress also reflected on her lifelong connection with faith, noting, “I feel like I’ve always walked with God, it’s just gotten deeper and closer and more fulfilling.” She highlighted a pivotal moment in her prayer life during a challenging time when she participated in a 24-hour prayer vigil for a friend in a coma, which prompted a significant shift in her approach to prayer.
Melissa Joan Hart’s commitment to her faith extends to her philanthropic endeavors. She has been actively involved with World Vision, a humanitarian organization dedicated to providing clean water and resources to those in need. Her recent trip to Zambia, where she visited struggling families and met with a family she has sponsored for years, left a profound impact on her. She noted the positive changes in her sponsored family since her first visit in 2019.
In 2020, Hart relocated from California to Tennessee, allowing her family to attend Sunday school and deepening their involvement in their faith community. For the past 13 years, she has been an integral part of the Community Bible Study program, demonstrating her enduring commitment to her spiritual journey.
