Mike shares his testimony with 12,000 Liberty University students

Mike was at Liberty University to share his life story with 12,000 Liberty University students. He started his speech by saying that “The pillow is just a platform for a much bigger thing…My calling is to speak out the word of Jesus.”

Mike went on to talk about his crack cocaine addiction, including recounting how his drug dealers had an intervention after he had been up for 14 days. They declared that “You’ve been telling us for years that this pillow is a platform for God, so you’re going to come back someday and get us out of here, and we’re not going to let you die on us.”

Mike did quit all of his addictions through prayer on January 16, 2009, and went on to make the MyPillow company extremely successful. He also met with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, which prompted Mike to say, “Things started happening that never happen, and I knew they had to be God…When I met with Donald Trump, it felt like a divine appointment, and when I walked out of that office I decided I was going to go all in.”

Mike closed his speech by saying that every student has a calling and encouraged all to follow Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Mike then went on to say, “You guys here at Liberty are the hope of the nation, and right now you are on the right paths, paths that I didn’t take back then.”
