Keith Thibodeux, who is best known for his role as Little Ricky on “I Love Lucy” has spoken out about his past in Hollywood and how he came to Christ.
Charisma News reports Thibodeux left Hollywood disillusioned after his parents’ divorce at age 15. He joined a band called David and the Giants and got involved with drugs.
“I needed a savior because I got down to the end of my rope when I was playing rock,” Thibodeux said. “It was at that point that God answered my prayer, my cry.”
He continued, “I found Jesus and God did a work in my life...I’m here today.”
The former child actor now runs a Christian ballet studio alongside his wife.
“I don’t need anything else but God and Jesus in my life because he’s my beginning, my middle, and my ending,” he said.
