In a recent interview, former NFL player Jack Brewer discussed his stormy past and how coming to know Jesus Christ has changed his life for the better.
Fox News reports that the 40-year-old now has a successful business in finance, but he learned many lessons along the way.
“Like a lot of people, I didn’t always live right. My journey was one where I had to use life experiences to bring me closer to Jesus Christ,” Brewer explained.
“One day I woke up and I realized, you can’t really live a life if you’re not communicating with God unless you’re broken, and so I started taking that feeling of being broken and I started fasting for the first time, praying for the first time,” Brewer noted.

Brewer said he was brought up in a household where “the Bible was the Holy Grail…God was always around.”
“We talk about God a lot in my house, and I’m just so blessed to be able to have children, who we can raise up in a holy home, around the word particularly in this society today,” Brewer explained.
He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017, but he looked at it as a personal message from God.
