Growing up in South Louisiana where most communities are centered on faith, David knew he believed in "something" but wasn't quite sure what that was.

By the time David reached 22 years old, he was struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs and one day woke up in a hospital room. Though that was a low point in his life he went on to marry Davey and raise their 4 children with faith at its core. Faith played a daily role in their lives, but on a fateful day in 2018, David's spiritual journey changed from believing to knowing. You can read more in his book:
