TPP #87 | Trust Life's Curveballs with Kelsey Brooks

The Parable Podcast with Danielle Zapchenk

Apr 26 2023 • 37 mins

Have you ever looked at your life and wondered how did I get here? It has definitely happened more than a few times. Today you are going to meet my friend Kelsey Brooks. I met her 17 years ago as a high school student who lit up the room with her smile and nowis an amazing woman.

"It was more just me realizing I don't know a lot about myself.  And That was the catalyst for my relationship with Christ really changing. Because that is when I was like, 'why am I so sad and broken.' So Lord, can we talk." - Kelsey Brooks

Learning about yourself is hard work and Kesley knows first hand. Transitions are hard and God wants us to shape us.  I am so proud of Kelsey and the tough work she put in too.  Her desire to be dependent on Him through the comfortable and uneasy is something that is admirable.  I hope you can continue to trust the curveballs in your life and enjoy this conversation with Kelsey Brooks.

  • Single - is there something wrong with me?
