About This Episode:


Overcoming struggles in life can often feel like trying to cross a massive canyon. According to my guest, Dr. Drew Sams on this special episode, crossing canyons may just be key to our next level of living. I had the honor of having an enlightening conversation with Pastor Drew Sams, who is not only the senior pastor of one of the most prominent churches, Bel Air Presbyterian Church, but is also helping so many people cross canyons on their own life journey. He shared the story of his Grand Canyon Run and the lives transformed because of it. We talked about his personal canyons and key lessons learned, belief shifts he had to make in his own life, and his advice on reframing pain for empowerment and personal growth. Regardless of your personal, spiritual or religious beliefs, you will get so much life-changing value from this conversation!
