About Me

John Mabry

My name is John Mabry. I am a husband and father of three residing in Nashville, TN. Although it may appear like I have it all together on the surface, I most certainly do not. My life has been rattled with multiple life-changing traumas and an infinite number disappointments. But I have also experienced countless blessings that are my primary focus these days. This blog is a scrapbook of my life, interests, and motivations, with plenty of humor and and raw emotions, to keep you coming back for more.

I have accumulated two lifetimes of experiences in only 37-years. Some of the significant events include:

  • Losing my leg and a friend in a rollover car accident
  • Finding my brother dead from a drug overdose
  • Suffering from PTSD, anxiety and depression
  • Competing in triathlons on one leg
  • Getting a Masters degree in Counseling
  • Acting in Hollywood – with appearances in Superbad, NCIS, ER, Brother and Sisters, JAG, American Son among others. I worked alongside my cousin, Josh Henderson (Dallas, Desperate Housewives) on FX’s Over There
  • Getting married and am blessed with three wonderful kids
  • Struggling for years with alcohol and substance abuse
  • Inventing the most advanced solution ever created for managing sweat & bacteria inside prosthetic limbs with the Valor line sock
  • Becoming the only guy with a prosthetic leg to do CrossFit regularly in Nashville

My family and I also have a uniquely entertaining and inspiring blog called MABRY LIVING. MABRY LIVING is a quirky collection of, “No way that happened!” stories from my family. Keep always tell us we should write a book about all of our real life adventures. If you like my content here you’ll love our Facebook page. So until we get to a point where we’re ready to do a book, be sure to check out my family’s hilarious antics and one-of-a-kind approach to life.

    Take care,


  2. I’m so sorry these terrible things happened to you. It’s good to talk about them not caring what people think. It leaves you free to be who you are!
