"God has continued to bless me and put me in this situation, not to continue to grow and work on Mark Wahlberg the person, but to do His work and finally, giving me the skills and tools to go out and articulate the message He wants me to articulate. It's never too late. As long as you're breathing, you have an opportunity to redeem yourself."
