Actor Dennis Quaid has faced some serious trials in his life, including addiction and tragedy. But in the midst of his suffering, he found God. And now, he opens up about his journey and how grateful he is to be alive.
Hollywood is not generally known as a place to be friendly to Christians and people of faith. Some in the industry have even mentioned that speaking openly about their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ has led to them losing out on work.
But that's not stopping actor Dennis Quaid from speaking about his journey from addiction to a relationship with God.
