From a meaningless existence laced in death and destruction, to a life free from addiction and self-gratification, I have walked with both demons and angels. There is a devil whose sole purpose is to thwart the destiny God has laid out for each of us. We are given a set number of years to fulfill that calling, and though many are quick to engage in their life’s purpose, I had to stare death in the face on multiple occasions and spend almost a decade behind prison bars before I accepted and embarked on my journey of redemption.

I carry the hope that my story will help the broken, the addicted, the abused, the struggling, and every other ordinary seeker find the destiny that God is anxiously awaiting to reveal through his Son Jesus Christ.

About Diesel

Born and raised in the small town of LaFollette, Tennessee, Scott “Diesel” Smith has stared death in the face many times during his life. Surviving cancer at 13 years old and waking up on life support four times throughout his tumultuous career as a child abuse investigator and later as a raging alcoholic and drug addict have given Diesel a keen insight into the realms of good and evil. It was during a 10-year sentence at Brushy Mountain Penitentiary that he was rescued from his self-destructive behaviors and found redemption in Jesus Christ. Now, Diesel’s mission is to share his story with audiences large and small in churches or different facilities with the desire to lead others to the saving grace of the cross.
