Actor Paul Hauser Found Jesus in a Strip Club: ‘Never Too Far Gone’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Actor Paul Hauser and his wife, Amy, recently shared their story, saying, “God wrote [it] to display His glory.”

“I think if we summarized our story, it’s a story of two people that were broken,” Amy said in an “I Am Second” interview. “It’s a story about faith, love, a lot of laughter. And It’s a story that no matter how far you run, Jesus is always coming after you, and you are never too far gone.”

Paul and his wife were at the beach when he confessed he had been “turning to a variety of things to deal with my anxiety, OCD, depression and past trauma. I had developed unhealthy coping mechanisms to numb my inner turmoil. And I had placed those above our relationship, willing to hold onto them at all costs.”

“Paul had family conflicts and inner turmoil he had been treating with alcohol and marijuana. And it didn’t take long before those band aides fell off. How long? Two months. Within two months of marrying Amy he separated from her. He cut her off. He didn’t attend the birth of his own son, having dug in his heels and becoming a hardened person,” I Am Second wrote.

Then, one night alone at a strip club—high and drunk—Paul met Jesus, and he and Amy eventually found each other again.

“Our prayer is that it will give hope to those who hear it,” Amy said of sharing their story. “Being this vulnerable to the world about the most difficult part of our story isn’t easy, but we know that it isn’t our story. It’s the story that God wrote with our lives to display His Glory.”

Their story is, in a way, like all stories. Oftentimes, we run away from God’s good plan for us. We look for anything to satisfy our needs and desires. But the only way we can ever be truly satisfied is in Christ alone.
