*Well looky here will ya. It’s non-other than Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson gracing the cover of Men’s Journal magazine newest issue.
In the issue, Wilson, 30, who used to be a bully when he growing up, talks about doing things his way, you know, walking to the beat of his own drum, so to speak.
“I don’t worry about what other people say or think,” Wilson told the publication. “I always want to lead with love. That’s where my heart is. Let that direct me. It’s that simple.”
The star quarterback and outspoken Christian role model also said he was once a “bad kid,” even a middle school bully until he gave his life to Jesus.
“I was going to church to see the cute girls,” he said, “and then in sixth grade, I had a dream that my dad passed away. And that Sunday, I went to church, and I just start bawling all of sudden. And that’s when my life kind of changed.” That, he says, is when he fell in love with Jesus.
“I’ve found peace and hope and love and joy in Jesus,” Wilson told The Rock Church four years ago in a video testimony. “and He’s the way and the only way.”
