Video: Alex Boye Shares How Faith Took Him from Eating Out of Trash Cans to Spiritual Riches


Famous LDS singer Alex Boye shares how his faith and dreams from the Lord helped bring him out of homelessness and into a better life.

In recalling this past, Boye says, "I remember there were times when I was literally so hungry I would eat food out of trash cans. . . . The only thing I had was prayer."

Later, he recalls, "I had dreams of something better, and I looked back, and I can be almost certain that it was the Lord that was putting those dreams in my mind. He was giving me visions of my future."
