In an interview with the SOS Radio Podcast, Jr. got surprisingly candid about his faith, and how his rededication to living by christian principles led him to a more meaningful relationship with his wife, Rachael Biester. As we’ve previously mentioned, Jr. and Biester met during the taping of American Chopper, and though he says that he’s always been a Christian, at the time he met Biester, she was not, and that he was “not really doing the right thing” by living with her before marriage. While he was still having doubts about the relationship, he attended a weekend retreat during which he received some sort of clarity from God. Apparently embracing a newfound faith of her own, Biester suggested she move out, during which time they “abstained for nine months” and Jr. proposed. Jr. says they “honored God and each other” during that period and that their relationship has been strengthened by their faith. “There’s a blessing in obedience,” he says.
And he wasn’t just talking the talk. Jr. became actively involved with benefits for PR Ministries, and even did speaking engagements alongside his wife for church congregations. He is available for booking as a “Christian speaker,” and has heavily incorporated his faith into his upcoming book, The Build: Designing My Life of Choppers, Family, and Faith, which the description says is “a rallying cry to unleash God-designed creativity and live life to the fullest.” We’d say God is definitely Jr.’s co-pilot, but that would seem like a bit of an understatement.
