Meagan Good is too blessed to be stressed… or at least that’s the underlying theme to her new interview in Rolling Out Magazine.
She’s featured on double covers of the magazine this week, that includes a solo shot of Meagan in spiked heels and the other with her new group, H.E.L.L.O girls. Inside, she reveals that she is trying to quit smoking as well as what has made her become so outspoken about her religious beliefs and Christian faith over the years. She also speaks for the first time about her future plans with her fiance, Devon Franklin (who is a pastor as well as a VP at Columbia Pictures) , who proposed to Meagan earlier this year.
Meagan On her fiance
You know, I feel like I am happier than I have ever been. A big part of that is finding a partner who shares the same heart for God that I have, who walks down the same road as I, and who wants the same things in life that I do. I’m also happy that I found someone who understands what I do for a living, and wants to use that as a tool to help glorify God. It’s really nice … and I’m so very happy.
On what personal and professional aspects of her life she wants to improve upon
Well I definitely want to start making more films, and I also want to start writing and producing more. I want to create projects with my fiancé, and just help people in any way that I can. I just want to get my hands on different areas of the business, and soak in everything that God has given me a passion for.
In my personal life, I just want to work on being a better person every day. Really working on quitting this smoking, and zoning in on letting go of the people who shouldn’t be in my life. I want to start focusing on spending more time with my mom, because life is short and precious. I want to be there for my younger sister, who turns 17 next month … I just really want to begin valuing more the things that are valuable to me. My focus is on giving them more attention than I have over the last couple of years. When you’re in your 20s, you’re ripping and running, and you can forget about the things that are so much more important than what you’re doing. Now that I’m 30, my mind-set has been altered in a great way, so I’m going to be focusing more on that.
On if her projects with her fiance would be more mainstream, or Christian-based
It will be both. You can’t just make projects for the Christian community, because I think they already have the right idea. They’re going to be OK … We will still make movies for them, but we also have to create projects for those people who need something positive and relatable without being very preachy. The key is to pull them in, and then add a hint of spirituality and God to the overall message without scaring them away.
