  1. These 2 podcasts with Carol Kent were super!

    My big takeaway is this: Don’t waste your story.

    When I started speaking, I was ashamed of my background because, as a youth, I was an unbeliever and rebel.

    But I’ve learned over the years that my story can be used for someone else’s benefit!

    Thanks for inspiring me to continue to use my story. I hope more people will see the value of sharing their own!
