I Am Scott Hamilton and I Am Second
I Am Second Website
I recently discovered a unique Christian website iamsecond.com that has a series of monologue videos all filmed against a black background with a white leather chair for the interviewee.
The whole modern, “avante-garde” style sets its approach apart from most Christian sites.
I am Second means second to Jesus Christ.
The website features a growing number of testimonies by a wide range of well known public figures as well as some lesser known ones.
The site has gone truly viral with many millions of views in over 200 countries in just over a year.
Here is an excerpt from About I am Second:

Scott Hamilton is a champion among champions as a figure skater.
He has won all there is to win – multiple times.
But there is a lot more to Scott Hamilton than his well-deserved skating fame.
There is adoption as a child, childhood disease, adult cancer and, later brain tumor surgeries.
And there is more on the inside.
You can get a good picture of Scott at this Bio.com page and its worth your time to do it.
But you will learn the most important things in Scott’s life on the white leather chair at I Am Second.
“I thought I paid my health dues when I had cancer but this was a whole other issue”
Olympic Gold Medalist and figure skating commentator Scott Hamilton knows a thing or two about preparation and dedication. His sport demands that a competitor come as close to perfect as possible. No break or fault goes unpunished by the judges. Scott mastered the sport and its nuances to become the world’s best.
Yet as good as he was, he could not on his own handle some of life’s biggest challenges to his health. Cancer. A re-occurring brain tumor. In the times that he needed someone by his side, there was always Someone there. Someone he has grown to know, to love. The one who introduced him to his wife and who has made having children possible. In this film he recalls a journey that many others are also traveling, and its telling never gets old.
There was a lot more going on in Scott’s life than I ever saw or even thought about as I watched him on the ice.
I am encouraged to know that he was “real” in having fears and doubts and even finding it hard to really let go and trust God to bring him through the crisis times.
I also appreciate the down-to-earth way Scott describes his spiritual journey and the joy he has experienced in becoming a husband and father. You can see some of this part of his life on a short Bio.com video included with his Bio Page.
This is the third I Am Second post I have done and I am appreciating the I AM Second group and the people on camera more and more as I look through their site.
I encourage you to spend some time there, too.
There are a lot of stories of famous and not so famous people in a wide variety of life circumstances who have come to the place where they can say:
I Am…..And I Am Second.
