In this show, you’ll hear five stories of incredible gifts or acts of kindness. 

Kindness and generosity come in many forms. This episode proves it.

Tune in and you will hear about:

  • A child who’s rescued from a life-threatening ordeal through the generosity of a total stranger 
  • A retiree who set out to volunteer a few hours at his local hospital and discovered an entirely new purpose in life -- one that’s reached a billion of people
  • How a woman looking to help the refugees she’d seen on TV wound up forming a deep friendship with a refugee family in her own city 
  • A “miracle cat” goes missing for more than a month, but makes it home with the help of an unexpected friend 
  • How one man finds “endless opportunities to be generous”

Fame. Fortune. And the adoration of millions. Those are the things Danny Wuerffel left behind when he walked away from sports and into a life of serving others.

Today you’ll find the former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback at Desire Street Ministries, where he’s helping inner city communities across the southern U.S. break the cycle of poverty, drugs and violence

In this episode, you’ll hear about Wuerffel growing up as the son of a military chaplain, and how that shaped his worldview—and led him to end up in lots of surprising locations.

He’ll take you behind the scenes of his Heisman Trophy award-winning night, and tell you what really happened after he received his award. And you’ll hear how volunteer work at his first NFL stop—New Orleans—led him to both the job he’s doing today, and the love of his life.

Tune in and you’ll also hear about the night Hurricane Katrina destroyed Wuerffel’s family home and the life-changing insight he discovered amongst the wreckage. You’ll also learn about Danny’s brush with a potentially deadly disease.

But don’t worry, it’s not all about scary storms and overcoming awful sickness. The energetic Wuerffel delivers plenty of smiles when he takes you back to his days at University of Florida, complete with some one-of-a-kind anecdotes about his one-of-a-kind coach, Steve Spurrier.
