When the star of "Dog the Bounty Hunter," Duane Chapman, looks back on his life, he recalls seeing God’s fingerprints all over it — everything from devastating losses to victorious triumphs.

“My journey has built faith,” the 69-year-old reality star told The Christian Post. “I’ve been through some terrible stuff, but it builds faith when you can look back and tell other people ‘Look, I've been there done that. Here's what you do.’ And then they do it. I love sharing my testimony … so others don’t have to go through it.”

Chapman, who starred in the popular A&E series until it concluded in 2012, credits this faith for getting him through the 2009 death of his 23-year-old daughter, Barbara Katy, and 10 years later, the loss of his wife, Beth, who passed away following a lengthy battle with cancer.

“With all of that, I was very depressed; I was sad,” the father-of-13 shared. “After Beth died, I’d see these other couples and think, ‘Well, she’s up there partying with Jesus and I’m down here bawling every day.’”

Thus, Chapman started praying and he felt God gently remind him that “it isn’t good for man to be alone.”

“I started praying for a wife,” he expressed. “I said, ‘Alright God, bring me a Christian; I want a girl who knows the Holy Ghost and can speak in tongues.’ And God brought her right to me.”

In September 2020, Chapman married Francie, a rancher, who lost her late husband, Bob, following his death from cancer just months before Beth passed away.

“It was God-ordained,” Chapman spoke of the union between the two. “Francie, I love her so much. She's a very, very good Christian girl.”

Fueled by the belief that God is good — and everything happens for a reason — the high-profile bounty hunter proudly shares his faith at every opportunity. In April, he performed “Amazing Grace” while dressed as an armadillo on “The Masked Singer” — a move he said was meant to declare, “I stand for God.”

“I was raised in the Assemblies of God and I was a Christian most of my life and then of course, I joined the dark side for a minute, but I jumped out of that," he shared. “I thought singing ‘Amazing Grace’ was an opportunity to … share that I stand for God. It was one of my mom's favorite songs.”

“I was very proud of Fox for letting me do that because it’s a huge network,” he continued. Chapman has previously used his platform to share his faith — “A&E allowed me to say at the end of a prayer, ‘In Jesus’ name, amen,’ he said — and surprisingly, he has reportedly found that Hollywood is receptive to his beliefs.

“A lot of people think Hollywood is full of a bunch of demons, but so many of the celebrities I’ve met over the last 20 years or so are good people; they’re not like Satan worshipers. Maybe a few are off into the Twilight Zone, but most of them believe in the concept of God, God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; it’s not really as demonic or dangerous as you would think. You can’t go throwing your pearls out before swine, but a lot of people respect the fact that I believe in God. They know I’m a Christian.”

Still, Chapman stressed that “sin is abounding” like never before, and yet, the Spirit of God is alive and moving tremendously. He voiced the belief that society is living in the End Times, pointing to biblical prophecy as evidence.
