 Who inspires you most and why ?

Jesus Christ! He was the only man to ever walk the Earth without sin. He came for a reason with a purpose and he walked boldly in it. He gave His life for His call and that is most inspiring to me.

 

 

Confess to me your favorite book ?

The Holy Bible.. It has the greatest stories ever written and no matter how many books on wisdom that I read I realize that all of man's wisdom today derives from the Wisdom of the Holy Bible and it was written thousands of years ago. Every question I had about life was answered in that book. I live by its principles and I reap it's promises and it's amazing. This isn't cliche or religious, it's real and I wish everyone would give it an honest try. 

 

 

How do you relax ?

I chill with my wife. We watch "storage wars," "snapped," and "American greed." If we aren't doing that then we are out as a family with my 4 year old son at movies, mall, theme park, or out to eat. I feel like I chill more than I work, lol. 

 

I'm a fan of your wife's intense workout style of being a top fitness model, so tell me can she bench press more than you ?

She is extremely strong!! In my day I benched 340lbs so I don't think she's passed me, lol.

 

You two are so cute together... How to keep a relationship fresh ? 

We stay busy so it makes us miss one another a lot. We both have a life outside of each other so it keeps our relationship fresh when we get to be together. I'm headed to L.A. tomorrow for two weeks on business so you can only imagine how much we will miss one another while I'm gone.

 

Everyday you tweet the most inspiring tweets ever, is it hard being Tony Gaskins ?

It's actually rather easy because it's not me, it's a gift from God and I'm just a vessel. Thousands of people have wrote me in awe over my tweets but I honestly feel no pressure because they come to me so easily as God breathes them into my spirit. I love being held accountable and responsible and to be counted on by over 100,000 supporters. 
 

 

 

Have you been to New Orleans and what's the one thing you'd love to do here ?

Yes, I've been to N.O. And the food was great! I was there shooting a documentary around the NFL lockout and it was an amazing experience. I want to make it there for the Essence fest one day!
