- Humility and Family

- American Patriotism and Unity
Jet Jurgensmeyer – Actor (Last Man Standing, Tots), Singer
“I’m praying for our country to come together and for the fighting to stop,” said the tween actor. Despite his young age, Jurgensmeyer seems to have a good head on his shoulders. He continued, “We are so privileged to be in this country. … We are Americans and have the opportunity to be an example for good to the rest of the world. We shouldn’t waste it.”
- Family-Friendly Content
Ashley Bratcher – Actress (Unplanned)
“I’m praying for faith and family-friendly content to continue to gain momentum,” Bratcher told Movieguide®.
The faith-filled actress has enjoyed a whirlwind 2019 with the release of her latest faith-based flick, and continues to work on projects with themes that uphold biblical values. Bratcher continued, “Entertainment is incredibly influential on culture, and as storytellers, we have the ability to write the narrative. To give people that hope. I want to be a part of that.”
