You don’t have to live with whatever life throws you—or whatever you’ve gotten yourself into. You can change your story! No matter how it looks right now, your life is a masterpiece waiting to be discovered.

This is the message of author, screenwriter, singer, and sought after speaker, Kirstin Leigh. Originally from a small town in Kentucky, Kirstin Leigh is a powerhouse of strength and compassion—one who has battled the demons (and the bottle) and won. In today’s interview Kirstin shares captivatingly honest accounts of her dreams, detours, tragedies, and triumphs; what it took to overcome, and why her breakout book Change Your Story is the story she never planned to tell.

If you have ever struggled with addictions, depression, or anxiety; if you are tired of wrestling with negative thoughts and being defined by your past; if you wonder why the same things keep happening to you and are ready for your breakthrough… you won’t want to miss today’s interview.

Key Takeaways

  1. More often than we’d like to believe, the addictions, the bad relationships and every other problem we have, are our insides screaming, “Deal with me!”
  2. Balancing (pretending to be fine), takes every bit of our energy and is the biggest distraction to our destiny.
  3. Dealing with our backstory is NOT the same as dwelling on it.
  4. Our feelings deserve to be heard and need to be understood—but sometimes we have to tell them to shut-up!
  5. Our bad decisions can make us wiser. Our rocky past can clear the path for a purpose filled life.
  6. When you’re stuck, ask God to reveal what’s standing in your way.
  7. You are not your pain, your problem, or your past.
  8. The worst part of our story can bring God glory—if we let it.
