Jennifer Garner opened up about why she has made going to church a weekly tradition for her kids.

"I grew up going to church every Sunday of my life, and when I did move to L.A., it wasn't something that was just part of the culture there in the same way, at least in my life. But it didn't mean that I lost who I was," the mom of three said on "Good Morning Texas."

Garner's faith and her career cross paths in her new faith-based film "Miracles from Heaven" about a young girl from Texas who was cured of a chronic disease after falling from a tree. She claimed that while she was unconscious, she met Jesus in heaven.

Garner plays the young girl's mother, Christy Beam. She said she was moved by Beam's memoir, which the film is based on.

"There was something about doing this film and talking to my kids about it and realizing that they were looking for the structure of church every Sunday," Garner said. "So it was a great gift of this film that it took us back to finding our local Methodist church and going every Sunday. It's really sweet."
