Family 

Jimmy married Amanda Mullens in May of 1984. They have two children: Christin (born August 1989) and Jonathan (born January 1992). They were blessed to welcome 17-year-old Mary Kirby Lees into their home at the age of 17, where she lived until her marriage at the age of 24. 

Jimmy and Amanda reside in a log lodge on a wooded hollow north of Nashville, Tennessee. Their most exciting adventure to date was getting to spend several days in the Amazon Jungle with Steve Saint and the Waudoni Indians, including tribe leader Mincaye. A major motion picture titled "End of the Spear" details the fascinating true story about Steve Saint, Mincaye, and this fierce Stone Age tribe. The television shows produced from this trip were nominated for four major awards on the Sportsman Channel, and won for Best Editing in 2006.

Bible Giveaways

The mission of this weekly program is to spread God's Word - the Bible - across the world. The television viewer can call a toll-free number and request a free "Heart of the Outdoors" Bible that Jimmy helped edit in partnership with the International Bible Society.

Hundreds of thousands of these Bibles have been distributed, including at Jimmy's speaking appearances and Bible giveaways at professional sports stadiums at Faith Nights. 

For example, the Atlanta Braves hosted a Faith Night where Jimmy and ace pitcher John Smoltz delivered testimonies immediately following the game. David Letterman and Jay Leno commented on the event, calling it the "Sermon on the Mound." These giveaways have been highlighted on two different ESPN shows - Outside the Lines, and Cold Pizza.
