Christian and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar has gone home to be with the Lord at 86 years old. Zig was a Southern Baptist Sunday School teacher at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas. In 1985-86, he even as first vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Zig is famously known for motivational speaking. He has helped many people throughout the years in their business and their personal lives. I started listening to Zig’s motivational tapes in the mid-90′s through the encouragement of a co-worker. I still occasionally listen today.
In the video below Zig shares with talk show host Philippe Matthews how coming to faith in Christ at 45 years old changed everything.
Brother Zig, say hello to Jesus for us.
