Willie Aames is the narrator for the TV series Bugtime Adventures in 2006.
Willie: There are dozens of me, dozens of actors that went through Hollywood and did the sex, drugs and rock n' roll thing. I was fortunate that I came out alive.
Willie: I got drunk for the first time at age 9. I used drugs for the first time in junior high. I started getting sober in 1983.
Willie: I get scared to death when I see people who say they've found Jesus Christ, and they're out there, and I wonder, who's teaching them? Who's mentoring them?
Willie: God gives me the children's ministry heart and patience. This is what He wants. It's awesome. I don't know where He's gonna take it - but God is building this thing.
Willie: God continues to work miracles in my life.
Willie: For someone who's got one foot in the world and one foot in his faith, I hardly think it's necessary to be picking a fight.
