Patricia Heaton of “Everybody Loves Raymond” fame is one of the few openly Christian conservative actors in Hollywood. Despite the fact that the leftwing entertainment industry is known to frown upon Christianity, Heaton has never been afraid to express her love for God.

Patricia Heaton Reveals Why She’s Bold About Her Faith

In a new interview with Christian Post, Heaton opened up about why she is so bold about her faith. 

“There’s a saying, ‘Jesus died for us publicly. So don’t live for Him privately,’” Heaton explained. “But I also think you have to talk about why you can love in difficult circumstances. Now, it’s because He first loved us. While we were still in our sin, He died for us.” 

“It’s kind of our job here as Christians to certainly extend the love of Christ, the love that He extended to us, to extend it to others through our actions,” she added.

Heaton’s Work With World Vision

Heaton is currently working to extend the love of Christ by acting as an ambassador for World Vision, which is known for being one of the largest Christian international non-governmental organizations in the world.

“We are successfully combating a lot of those things, and World Vision is a big part of all of that,” she said “I really did my research with World Vision. They are such a transparent organization where 86 cents of every dollar goes directly to [the] program so that when you’re giving money, you know it’s really being used for programs that are lifting people out of poverty, not necessarily some big salaries. People who work for World Vision are living very sacrificial lives.” 

Heaton ‘Hopeful’ For The Future

While Heaton has not been able to travel as much lately for the organization as she has in the past due to COVID-19, her past adventures with World Vision have made her “hopeful” for the future. 

“It’s wonderful to travel around the world and see all the great work that’s being done. And there’s a lot to be hopeful about. I think, right now, in our country, if you [spend] much time on social media, you can become very despondent, and maybe a little depressed about the state of mankind,” the actress said. “But if you get out into the world, you see there’s millions of people doing wonderful things, and their lives are changing for the better.”

With Christmas approaching, Heaton stated that the most important thing about the holidays is to spend time with the people you love.

“I’ve come to realize over the years, the most important thing is just being together,” she said. “No matter where you are, if you can be together with some family members, that’s what I’m really the most excited about.”

We applaud Patricia Heaton for continuing to use her platform to show the world what a good Christian woman looks like!
