I’m honored to host my amazing friend, Connell ‘Spanky’ Spain in this episode.
From being an All-American high school football star, FSU National Champion, and NFL player, Connell’s journey is marked by tremendous faith, resilience, and perseverance.
An injury prematurely ended his NFL career, but his spirit remained unbroken as he transitioned to Arena football, achieving a championship with the Orlando Predators.
After retiring from football, Connell faced struggles with depression and self-identity, but in his darkest hour, contemplating taking his life, he heard the voice of God that there was a greater plan for his life, increasing his faith, hope, and purpose, ultimately transforming his life.
Today, he’s not just a former athlete. He’s a loving family man, successful business owner, motivational speaker, actor, and the president of The S.P.A.i.N Foundation, providing economic awareness, character building, and leadership skills for tomorrow’s leaders.
I am deeply grateful for Connell’s vulnerability and courage in sharing his inspiring journey – a story that’s much needed in our time.
As you listen to this episode I hope you are not only inspired, but experience a greater sense of knowing that no matter how deep the valley of despair, how daunting the challenge, or how heavy the burden, adversities do not define you. You have the power to rise from the ashes of your trials and radically transform your life.
