My guest this week is Karrie Garcia. As a pastor, life coach, author and CEO, Karrie inspires change in others by boldly sharing her journey to freedom. With more than 10,000 hours of experience under her belt, Karrie has been speaking formally since the age of 19. Her audiences range from church small groups to crowds of thousands.
Karrie’s authentic, raw, and fearless approach to addressing challenging, and sometimes uncomfortable, topics makes those who hear from her feel known, loved, and accepted. She started the nonprofit Freedom Movement in 2014 with the understanding that every single one of us is broken and has wounds, many of which are not often addressed within traditional church environments.
Karrie’s new book, Free & Fully Alive: Reclaiming the Story of Who You Were Created to Be, is available now.
I wanted to know God deeply, and yet I didn’t know how to encounter or faceoff or even really embrace the stories of harm and heartache that were in my home.
I’ve been sober 21 years. However, I still struggle with addiction. I got off drugs because I was going to die.
I take very complex things and simplify them.
We must see the story before we see the sin. You’re on drugs? OK, what’s the story?
