Demi Lovato has shared photos from her trip to Israel on social media, calling the experience “so important for my well-being, my heart, and my soul.”  The 27-year-old also shared she was baptized in the Jordan River, saying, “I’ve never felt more renewed in my life.”

Lovato captioned her images on Instagram: “I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors. When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I’d read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes. There is something absolutely magical about Israel. I’ve never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God … something I’ve been missing for a few years now. Spirituality is so important to me… to be baptized in the Jordan river — the same place Jesus was baptized.”
