Remi Adeleke — Former U.S. Navy SEAL, Cast Member of Transformers: The Last KnightAs a part of America’s most elite fighting unit, Remi Adeleke has had the opportunity to see and do things men and women have only dreamt about. But what is even more remarkable is his story which begins in a small country in Western Africa. The son of a well-known Nigerian engineer and a homemaker, Remi lived the life of opulence. But in 1987, that all changed when his father suddenly died. With his father’s death also came the death of their luxurious lifestyle and the beginning of a life filled with constant adversity and struggles. Stripped of everything by the Nigerian government, Remi and his mother permanently relocated to one of the toughest inner cities in America - Bronx, N.Y. Though austere, the Bronx proved to be the perfect environment to prepare Remi for his future as a Navy SEAL and also, to instill a key lesson that he teaches to this day - perseverance. After years of running the streets, fighting, and participating in nefarious activities, Remi decided to make a change in his life. In the early summer of 2002 he enlisted in the U.S Navy, and embarked on a journey that reads like a Hollywood Script. Oh… did we mention that Remi is also an actor and will be featured in the upcoming Paramount Pictures film, Transformers: The Last Knight...?
Ya - that just happened!
Ted DiBiase — WWE Hall Of Fame’s Million Dollar Man!Ted DiBiase is a WWE Hall Of Fame professional wrestler, best known for his role as the villainous “Million Dollar Man” of the World Wrestling Federation (now known as WWE). Ted literally travelled the world with the WWF, wrestling in some of the biggest venues in the world, like Madison Square Garden, The Superdome, The Skydome, The Tokyo Dome, and Wembley Stadium. After six years with the WWF, seeing his likeness made into action figures, characters in video games and his face on everything from T-shirts to pin-ball machines, he ended his active career at the end of 1993 due to a neck injury. He then went on to be a ringside manager and commentator with the WWF from 1994 to the fall of 1996. During that time, he managed such wrestling superstars as “Stone” Cold Steve Austin and Bam Bam Bigelow. Ted finished his career working for the Ted Turner owned World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from the Fall of 1996 to the Fall of 1999, spending a total of twenty-five years in the industry. Today, after authoring a book about his life entitled Every Man Has His Price, Ted is a full time minister and motivational speaker. He is also a spokesperson for and board member of The Sunshine Foundation. This organization grants wishes to terminally ill and handicapped children.
Scott Marshall — Author of BOB DYLAN: A Spiritual LifeNever before has a book like this one delved into the spiritual odyssey of cultural icon Bob Dylan. Tracking an American original--from his Jewish roots to his controversial embrace of Jesus to his enduring legacy as the composer of the Tempest album--Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life delivers the story of a man in dogged pursuit of redemption. Based on years of research and original interviews, this book sorts through the myths and misunderstandings and reveals Dylan to be both traditional and radical in the way he expresses his spiritual quest for purpose and meaning. "Call Dylan whatever you want, but the name won't stick", said foreword writer and film director Scott Derrickson. What does stick is his music, in part because his songs contain a deep, abiding spirituality that moves listeners more than the songs of any other artist. Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life bridges the gap between purpose and meaning in grand fashion. It offers readers an informative, entertaining, and nuanced look into Bob Dylan's spiritual odyssey. Today, there is not a Dylan book in existence that exclusively focuses on his spiritual odyssey through years of research and interviews.
Mel & Tim Stevens — Founder & Director of Teen Ranch “CELEBRATING 50 YEARS”In 1961, Mel and Janet Stevens took a step of faith and went to Australia with their month old baby boy, Tim, along with four other couples from a gospel music group to start Teen Ranch Australia. Mel and Janet directed the camp there, drawing no wage for six years before returning to start Teen Ranch Canada in 1967. They had 10 dollars in their pockets, two more children, and faith in God’s leading and proven goodness. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Teen Ranch Canada. The first summer camp started in 1967 with 6 kids and has now grown to 130 per week. There are also now Teen Ranches in Scotland, France, Romania, Poland, Kenya, Zambia and Indonesia. (Tim The Tool & Drew first met at Teen Ranch when they were both teenagers and had hair. So basically, Teen Ranch is to blame for everything you hear on the show!)
