God gives me the children's ministry heart and patience. This is what He wants. It's awesome. I don't know where He's gonna take it-but God is building this thing.
I get scared to death when I see people who say they've found Jesus Christ, and they're out there, and I wonder, who's teaching them? Who's mentoring them?
I had never really pictured myself working in children's ministries. I always figured I would be more comfortable with maybe teens or adult ministries.
I realized there was very little in Hollywood I would ever feel comfortable doing. If I kept one foot there and one foot in my Christianity, I would never grow.
I spent six years in Bible study because I needed to get grounded. People really need to spend time in the Bible getting to know the God they claim to love.
I tell kids that people will let them down and people will hurt them. But Jesus Christ will never let them down and never hurt them.
I want kids to understand that strength doesn't come from what goes on around you. It comes from inside you, and that comes from Jesus Christ.
I'm cleaning toilets for $30 a day, because I needed that $30, and people are pointing at me, saying, Look at the big movie star. Look where he is now. I just said, I'm where God put me.
