My guest is Jason Janow! He is from Spring City, TN. He’s had a lot of stuff happen in his life. At the age of 10 he started as a laborer working for his uncle who shed a lot of positivity into his life, but unfortunately Jason was not open to any of that at the time. Consequently, at the age of 15 he ended up getting kicked out of high school for fighting.  He was a little fella, and did not take kindly to being picked on….so he fought A LOT! 

He loves fishing and hunting, but he ended up spending more time with his other hobbies….drugs, sex, and alcohol. His wild and crazy lifestyle first put him jail until he escaped, and finally ended up in and out prison for 18.5 years of his 47 year old life. “It’s been hard”, says Jason, but “I determined”. At age 45 Jason finally gave his life to the Lord and has not looked back. Praise God! I am Billy Yancey. God is THE GOAT!
