Divine Influencer with Shari Rigby #254
Lisa Hendey shares a conversation with Shari Rigby, the talented director behind the new Great American Pure Flix film Divine Influencer.
Divine Influencer Synopsis: When an entitled influencer loses everything, she must humbly trust God to understand what the meaning of true influence is. Desperate, she takes a job at a homeless shelter only so she has a place to lay her head and quickly realizes the joy and purpose that comes from serving others.
Growing up in North Dakota, Shari Rigby dreamed of being an entertainer. For Shari, success in print modeling came at a young age and quickly evolved into commercial work & film. She has been credited with eight films, and an assortment of print awards.
