Growing up in the public eye is challenging, and it is something today’s guest, Kolby Koloff, has experienced firsthand. As a pastor’s daughter and reality tv show star, Kolby had many people watching her every move. This pressure had an immense impact on her and the way she viewed herself. In this episode, the speaker and singer/songwriter opens up about her insecurities and fears and the immense amount of work she has done to work through them.
We talk about Kolby's parent’s divorce and the long-standing effects the split had on her. From struggling with the fear of rejection to not wanting to commit to a relationship, the wounds ran deep. We hear about her relationship with her fiancé, Andrew, and how it has pushed her to grow and confront what she had long been running away from. Our conversation also touches on seeing yourself through God’s eyes, how this can increase your level of self-worth, and the power of releasing limitations and trusting your faith.
Our email question this week (47:26) is what is the best way to apply foundation?
