Do you ever feel like despite professional and economic success, something is missing in your life?  


In today’s episode, we’re heading into one of the four pillars of the True Detox journey to talk about spirituality and love with our special guest, Doctor, and Pastor Derwin Gray.  


Dr. Gray is a former football player, with a successful career in the NFL and he, as many of us, saw himself locked in a scheme that did not make him happy. In this opportunity, he’s sharing his inspiring journey and how he went from NFL professional player to devoted husband and preacher.
