“I'd say 'bottom' for me was, hearing a woman demand $40K from me to abort my, now, three-year old baby girl...to think that I contemplated ending her precious little life, says an awful lot about the self-absorbed man I used to be,” Gold painfully admits.
If Tim Tebow is the modern day equivalent to John the Baptist - who announced the coming of Jesus Christ - then Ian Gold is the modern day equivalent to the Apostle Paul - who denounced Jesus Christ. Until one day, Paul, himself, had an encounter with Jesus, which resulted in him walking away from his job to go preach the very gospel he once reviled.
In his newly released memoir entitled, "Plant Water Grow," like Paul, Gold reveals that he, too, had a life-altering encounter with Jesus Christ, which resulted in him walking away from his NFL career just weeks before his thirtieth birthday.
Gold's memoir includes graphic details of the pain he both, caused and suffered, by engaging in a countless number of meaningless and casual sexual relationships. He also discloses details of the domestic violence he witnessed during his childhood, and how seeds of anger and bitterness toward his dad fueled his agression on the football field.
Having once been "useless" to God, today, whether he is traveling across the country and beyond to share his personal testimony of his redemption and God's love; creating innovative and cause-related websites to benefit the lives of people; sitting in a recording studio with the instrument of choice in hand; or pouring out his deep-seeded emotions onto the pages of his journal, with the remaining time he has left on this earth, Gold is determined to remain “useful” to God.
