In this inspiring speech, Kevin shares his personal journey, in the hopes of helping others through difficult times. Read Less ^

"Kevin Sorbo may have played a mythical hero [on screen], but his friendly, down-to-earth personality is all real. He offered practical advice that nurtured both the body and the spirit. This woman’s heart was inspired."
"Kevin Sorbo is so much more than “Hercules.” As the guest speaker at Heart of a Woman, an event of 650 women ranging from age 25 to 85, Kevin was gracious, enduring, and compassionate with all. He is a powerful speaker who captures everyone’s attention through his courageous life story. It is impressive that Kevin stands up for what he believes in even though he is going against the grain of most in Hollywood. It was a pleasure working with him!"
"I enjoyed the speaker! His message was on point. Even though he was a man speaking about his issues, the message was the same for both men and women. During the meet and greet [he] was easy to talk with; it was like he was on my level and the concerns we were discussing were the same. I felt more of an everyday human struggling in a working field, and not a star sense coming from him."
