I’m so damn proud and excited to share this interview with you today, here’s why: Chris is one of the most real, courageous and inspiring women I’ve had the fortune to connect with in the last couple of years. She’s someone who speaks from her core and who’s had a tremendous transformation in the last three years despite losing her marriage, her job and finding herself as a single mother of two with no savings in the midst of winter in Minnesota.
If you’ve ever struggled with forgiveness, surrender, or indulged in feeling like a victim a bit too much, you’ve got to hear what this woman has to share. I promise you that you will not soon forget her wisdom and light.
