In an interview with Beliefnet, she  said of her faith, "It is everything. That's who I am. God lives within me. I meditate, I pray. I'm nothing without God. So, I just ask that He use me in my work. There's always somebody who can identify with the characters that I portray."

In an interview with the Christian Post, she spoke of her new role as the host of the annual Celebration of Gospel. She said, "I'm funny, but a lot of times they get comedians or personalities. So I was just very, very honored. And then when I met with the executives I got goosebumps. We all did because it just felt like the perfect marriage. Anybody that follows me, that knows me -- knows that I love the Lord and I'm not afraid to say it..."
