I Am Second videos are really cool glimpses into the spiritual lives of celebrities, artists, athletes; and on a slow day people like me. (Yes, they did one on me, Wally, years ago).  These videos don’t just focus on a person’s highlight reel.  Instead, they show the struggle and how their faith helped shape them into they person they are today.
