This a story of triumph, where our guest Andrea Mack chose not to allow the past to determine who she has become today.
Andrea is the owner of One Word at a Time Coaching, where she specializes in trauma and recovery coaching. She is a certified life coach with years of business experience. She is also a speaker, volunteer, mentor and advocate for help groups, single mothers and various women's facilities.
Andrea shared her tragic story of trauma, which started at the very early age of 5. The horrors she faced from then on went on to shape her childhood and young adult life in heartbreaking ways until she hit rock bottom and turned her life around.
Andrea has shown a beautiful balance of how you can turn a life of pain, shame and regret around to become a beacon of hope and light. She is now helping others release the shame from their past to know their self-worth.
My conversation with Andrea answers questions like:
- Is finding Christ the only route to getting sober?
- Do I need to have gone through the same experience to be able to help or coach someone?
- What would present-day Andrea tell the young Andrea now?
