In a conversation with Christian Headlines, Wahlberg highlighted how his Christian beliefs have helped him navigate the ups and downs of life, including dealing with loss and adversity as he ages.

Wahlberg, at 52, openly credits his faith for providing him the strength to overcome life’s challenges. “My faith gives me great comfort, and that’s something I wish to share,” he mentioned, explaining that this is what he believes to be the key to his success.
