A life changing story.

When David Speaks...

It is impossible to stay the same...

Born To Lose -

Hailed by many as one of the most inspirational and motivational preachers of our time,  You will never hear a speaker like David Ring! For almost 50 years, Despite all odds, David has been passionately sharing the gospel of Christ to audiences all over the world! His incredible testimony of strength, courage and faith leaves listeners of all ages inspired and hungry to fulfill Gods calling on their lives. Born dead for 18 minutes, David developed cerebral palsy and inherited a world of excruciating pain, physical struggles and constant public humiliation. Orphaned at age 14, David was cast about from family to family with nowhere to call home. Yet, in the face of these seemingly insurmountable obstacles, David emerged victorious and not a victim! Life was worse than hopeless to him until he encountered Jesus Christ who pulled him out of the pit of depression, suicidal thoughts and taught him self respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. 


Whether giving a motivational message at a church, business, convention or corporate event, David always focuses on an individual’s need to conquer the personal challenges and adversities of life. As you hear David Ring, you will laugh…and you will cry. You will be amazed at his triumph over odds and will be deeply moved to consider your own life. As one who learned to not be stifled by his physical limitations, he boldly stakes his challenge to everyone who will listen, “I have Cerebral Palsy–what’s your problem?” Although difficult to understand at first, you will soon find yourself captured by his quick wit and warm personality!

Since 1973, David has shared his story with over 100,000 people each year nationally and internationally. He has also, on numerous occasions, been featured on several nationally televised programs.

David and his wife, Karen, make their home in Nashville, Tennessee. They are the proud parents of four children and 5 grandchildren!

David Ring’s Story told through the eyes of his high school best friend, David Wideman, This moving story illustrates how friendship and love triumph over adversity. Anyone who faces tough times will treasure this story of hope and courage!
