Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

Jul 10, 2024

Human Being or Human Doing? ... Kelsey O’Connor said it best in her commencement speech at NC State University. She suffered a career ending brain injury while playing softball for the NC State Wolfpack. After she recovered... she understood more about life.

Everyone wants to know... What Are You Going To Do In Life? Very few ask ... Who Are You Going To Be?

That is where this episode comes in! Hopefully we can take a moment to reflect on who we want to be and see if that changes what we are going to do in life.
