Authentic Growth Blueprint

Jun 7, 2020

In this episode we dive deeper into Curtis’s story as we discuss what it was like for him growing up with a father who adopted him and what it was like navigating a loving, but messy family. In our society, divorce and broken families are becoming more common and it’s causing a lot of pain.


In this episode, we will learn powerful lessons on forgiveness and the importance of leaning into discomfort as we discuss using our experience (positive or negative) for personal growth.


“Every time you speak into someone, you have no idea of the potential power that act has.”
