But Cena really dedicated himself to the cause. In 2019, he granted his 600th wish — more than any other person — and he shows no signs of stopping. There’s a reason he’s granted so many wishes and it’s not because he can fit all the wishes into his busy schedule between wrestling and filming movies. He’s the organization’s most requested person. He has a lot of young fans. Of his experience working with Make-A-Wish, Cena says, “I learn from every single child I meet and their families as well. It’s incredibly rewarding.”

The wishes typically fall into five categories: I wish to go, I wish to be, I wish to meet, I wish to have or I wish to give. Many kids wish to meet their idols. Over the nonprofit organization’s 40-year history, countless celebrities, including actors, athletes, musicians and other personalities, have partnered with Make-A-Wish to grant the wishes. Several of these celebrities have paired with Make-A-Wish multiple times, including Justin Bieber, Michael Jordan and Hulk Hogan. In fact, all three have “made a wish” over 200 times each. But there is one celebrity who has donated more time than any other: John Cena. As an actor and professional wrestler with the WWE, John Cena has fans all over the world. Cena granted his first wish in 2004 — part of the long tradition of the WWE working with Make-A-Wish. It’s a tradition that goes back to the first days of the foundation in the 1980s when Hulk Hogan began granting wishes. Since then, over 50 WWE wrestlers have granted more than 6,000 wishes!

fascinating book that looked at how fasting was a tool of the Christian Church in the old days. Jesus fasted for 40 days as a sort of spiritual weapon, preparing himself for what was to come. Reading this book has got me thinking about how I can use fasting as a way to keep myself sensitive to God and the spirit. Being a chef and running my own business means I don’t have the same amount of free time I did when I was a kid with 10 books on my nightstand. But I’ve learned that in order to have time to read, I need to make time. During a weeklong vacation, I can chew through four different books, but during a workweek, I might only have time to read for 15 minutes before bed. I’ll take that 15 minutes because, hey, at least I’m getting to read. And when I inevitably wake up at 2 a.m., I can grab my book off the nightstand and read again until I fall back to sleep.


Reading is pretty important to me and I’ll take my reading time wherever I can get it.
