Jimmy wayne dating
“I fell in love with God when I was 9 years old, but I fell out of love,” Jimmy admits.“I felt neglected when I was 14, but then when I met the Costners I felt so embarrassed that I had turned my back the way I did and believed that He had forsaken me.” Jimmy lived with the Costners for six years.“They simply gave me so much hope that outweighed any amount of pain that I’d ever gone through,” he says.“The goodness that they gave me outweighed the bad that I experienced.” The elderly couple demonstrated the love of Jesus on a daily basis and helped Jimmy rediscover his faith.
He walked 1,700 miles in seven months, drawing attention to the plight of underprivileged kids and lobbying for legislation to raise the age from 18 to 21 before young people are kicked out of foster care.
It’s a long way from being homeless to topping the country music charts, but Jimmy Wayne has made the journey.
The road from his turbulent childhood to his successful career has been a complicated path paved by faith, friendship and a focused desire to make a difference in the world.
“When I share it, inevitably somebody always comes back and says, ‘Your story really helped me out’ and it still is helping people out, so that’s why I keep telling it.” Jimmy’s faith has helped him make peace with his childhood.
“There’s only one person who deserves the right to carry a grudge, and instead He carried a cross,” Jimmy says.
