BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette talked about his spiritual side in a recent interview with Mormon Times TV.

In the 6-minute segment, Fredette addressed the following topics:

His roots in the LDS Church, along with how his family and the gospel have shaped his life.

Crediting the Lord for his God-given talents.

Using his celebrity status to spread the gospel message. “(Being a missionary for the church) means more to me than being a good basketball player,” Fredette says.

His thoughts on living the gospel and how it continues to shape his future.
