Tim Tebow Calls Charity Work With His Wife ‘The Most Fulfilling Thing’

By Movieguide® Contributor

In his new book, Mission Possible: Go Create a Life that Counts, former NFL star Tim Tebow shared about the blessing of his marriage to his wife, Demi-Leigh Tebow.

The couple wed in January of 2020. 

“There have been so many things we’ve gotten to do together,” the football player told People. “We’ve gotten to find the things we have in common, but also to find where we’re different. We’ve served together, which is the most fulfilling thing. A lot of that has been through my foundation.”

The couple works together at the Tim Tebow Foundation, hosting an annual Night to Shine event that celebrates the lives of those with special needs. 

Tebow noted that marriage while fulfilling, can also be a challenge. 

“It can be a challenge because you’re learning about someone so deeply who is so different than you,” he shared. For example, the football player comes from a big family, while Demi only had one sister. 

Another difference is that Demi prefers quiet, downtime, while Tebow loves to be active. He admits that he was “not so sensitive, not understanding,” when it came to their differences early in the relationship, but he has learned how to compromise. 

“It’s great to have someone by my side and we can be making an impact together,” Tebow concluded. “It’s sort of like I say in the book: That we have to make the right choices to fulfill our responsibilities and really make a difference in the world.”

Movieguide® has previously reported on Tebow’s Christian faith:

Former NFL player Tim Tebow recently shared the mission that God gave him to accomplish at the 2022 Passion Conference.

“Every single one of us has been given a mission by God, for God, and that mission is possible,” the 35-year-old shared.

“You see on the macro, I believe every single one of us has the same mission: To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. … But, I also believe that every single one of us, we have a micro-mission — something that God has designed exactly for you,” he added.

Tebow, who first rose to popularity for displaying his Christian faith as the star quarterback for the University of Florida Gators, also quoted Ephesians 2:10: “For we are His workmanship (or masterpieces), created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared before for us to walk in.”

“We have a micro-purpose, something designed exactly for you, that is only for you because before you were ever born, the God of this universe wrote a poem that in Christ Jesus is a masterpiece for good things for you to do,” Tebow said. “And guess what, your poem is just for you. It’s only for you. There is something so unique and special that is just for you. In Christ Jesus, you’re a masterpiece.”
