The story of the Christian teenager martyred for her faith in the 1999 Columbine Massacre will be told on the big screen next month.
I'm Not Ashamed is the faith-based biopic about 17-year-old Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine High School shootings in Colorado. Rachel's mother, Beth Nimmo, says the movie is based on her daughter's personal journals, which prophetically revealed the teenager's love and commitment to God and a faith in Christ that was strong enough to die for.
"For the potential of this to reach the unreached, which was what her desire was – to see souls saved - I think she would think job well done," Nimmo tells OneNewsNow.
She hopes the film will encourage students to use their voice to share their faith in their schools.
"Schools are a campus for the enemy," the mother recognizes. "It's an open playground for him, because so much of the Christian voice has been stifled there, and now only a student can have that voice. It's been stripped from any authority as far as teachers and administration go."
She also hopes her daughter's story ignites another "Jesus revolution," in her words.
I'm Not Ashamed will be in theaters October 21st.
