Governor Greg Abbott’s personal story demonstrates perseverance through adversity. At age 26, he was jogging through a neighborhood when a large oak tree snapped and fell onto his back crushing a number of vertebrae. He also suffered damage to his vital organs and broken ribs. He was paralyzed from the waist down.
With God’s strength and support from his family, he continued to pursue his career, serving as a Justice on the Texas Supreme Court and as a State District Judge in Harris County. He was also the 50th and longest-serving Attorney General of Texas, earning a national reputation for defending religious liberty and protecting Texas communities and children.
Now as the 48th Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott is instituting some groundbreaking policies in his state. From a ban on critical race theory curriculum in schools to the Texas Heartbeat Bill protecting babies starting at nearly six weeks from conception, Abbott represents faith and family at one of the highest political levels.
In this interview, Jim Daly and John Fuller will introduce listeners to the Governor of Texas and the way he is protecting the family through a number of strong and brave policies.
