What first drew me to actor Terry Crews was when he made headlines for boldly speaking out against pornography. He shared his own struggles with it to his fans (see video below) and it made national news. The more I looked into his life, the more substance I found. What I discovered was a courageous person who isn’t afraid to risk their popularity in order to stand for important truths. I love this. This led me to read Terry’s autobiography, Manhood. What I discovered was the refreshing account of a real person, not a Hollywood facade. What I found was a transparent, relatable guy that I have a lot in common with. I highly recommend you read Manhood and I bet you’ll find the same thing.

Video recommended by Senator Weiler for parents to talk to their kids about pornography:
Actor Terry Crews (of Brooklyn Nine Nine & those hilarious Old Spice commercials fame) opened up on his Facebook page with some videos on how he’s overcome an addiction to pornography, how porn messes a person up and how a person can overcome pornography. It is so refreshing to hear a Hollywood star have courage to be vulnerable and to take a stand against something that the secular media world accepts and even applauds. While the videos aren’t explicitly Christian, you can definitely see Jesus in Terry’s character and can see how Terry’s Christian faith and identity in Christ was a guide for him through this addiction.
Terry is from Flint, MI and in addition to his prolific acting career, played 4 seasons in the NFL.
