In this episode, we sit down with Karrie Garcia to discuss how your past doesn’t have to define you in the eyes of God. Karrie – a pastor, author, and CEO – is on a mission to motivate others and inspire change through sharing her journey of personal growth. Despite facing her own struggles, she has emerged triumphant and founded the Freedom Movement, a nonprofit that addresses issues of pain and brokenness frequently overlooked in traditional church settings. Karrie’s new book, Free and Fully Alive, offers readers a practical guide to embracing their past and building a stronger connection with themselves, God, and others. In addition to her work as an author, Karrie is also a certified health and wellness coach who applies her psychology background to help clients align their minds and bodies.
