John Teaches His Kids About Legacy

Season 1
Aired on 06/03/2017 | CC
As John reflects on his visit to a maximum-security prison where he delivered a sermon, he confides in Aventer that the experience has left him shaken. "It's weird how coming home from preaching at a prison makes you want to hold your family close," he says.

As John tells Aventer what he witnessed, he begins to think about his son's future and the legacy he wants to leave behind. "I do want my son to be like me, but then I want him to be better than me," John says.

Here, John opens up about how the experience at the prison has deeply affected him—and it inspires him to define his legacy for himself and his children.
