WATCH: Tyrese Gibson Shares How God’s Grace Helped Him to Overcome Abusive Childhood on Creflo Dollar’s “Your World”

Tyrese Gibson says God’s grace has enabled him to overcome a traumatic childhood in which he watched his parents’ addictions consume them.

Tyrese, the “Fast and Furious” action star who rose to fame as a singer and model, was a guest on the 100th episode of Pastor Creflo Dollar’s show, “Your World.” On the show, he and his wife, Samantha Lee Gibson, shared how God’s grace helped them overcome less than perfect childhoods.

For Gibson, drugs and alcohol took a toll on his life at a young age when he witnessed his parents abusing substances.

“I really could not explain the mental, emotional, physical, and psychological abuse that took place in my house. My mother was an alcoholic for 27 years, my father was an alcoholic and crackhead,” Tyrese revealed. “There was something inside of me that I felt greater than my circumstances. See, I am not just my talent.”

While Tyrese has achieved success despite his past, he credits God’s grace with enabling him to overcome those tough times.
