Gibbs discusses how he handles trials and tests in his life by following some basic points from the book of James. These points include:
- Count everything for joy.
- God doesn’t put us through trouble for trouble’s sake.
- The trying of your faith works toward patience.
PE: Why is faith important to you?
Wynn: As a man you are the leader of your household and it all starts with faith. You have to ask yourself, “What do you believe?” For me, I believe that faith defines you and it’s my foundation in good or bad times. I wouldn’t be here without my faith.
PE: Tell us about your family and the impact they’ve had on your life?
Wynn: My wife and daughter have always been a great supporting cast. As you know with football it takes a lot of commitment and they’ve stuck by my side through thick and thin. I’ve been married to my wife for 18 years now, and I definitely give credit to her for keeping me focused on what was most important. Coach Lou Holtz often told me that she was the reason I was able to stay focused enough to remain eligible, graduate, and ultimately get drafted. I am so thankful that God blessed me with her and I don’t take it for granted.
