'Spy Kids' star Alexa PenaVega on why she left Hollywood for a Christian life: 'I needed a heart reset'

In 2017, former child star Alexa PenaVega decided it was time to relocate from Hollywood to Maui – and she has zero regrets.

The "Spy Kids" actress and her husband, Nickelodeon’s "Big Time Rush" star Carlos PenaVega,

had grown up in the industry but wanted to practice their Christian faith in a close-knit community.

The couple met during a bible study group in California, got engaged in 2013, married four months later and combined their last names.

However, it was 2016 when the starlet, 33, and the actor, 32, realized their priorities were far different from their peers in LA.

After reflecting on prayer, the duo pack up and headed to Hawaii where they are now raising three children.

Most recently, the PenaVegas have written a memoir titled "What if Love is the Point? Living for Jesus in a Self-Consumed World,"

which was released on Tuesday. In it, they reflected on their life-changing decision. 

 PenaVega spoke to Fox News Digital about the inspiration behind the book, why she got candid about her past eating disorder and what life is like for her today.
