Episode 0086

You Are Here For a Reason

Have you ever met someone who stopped you in your tracks? Someone who made you think about and appreciate life more fully?

That happened to me when I recorded this week’s podcast episode.

This week, I’m talking to an incredible woman who has an appreciation for life that is unmatched by almost no one I’ve ever met. And, if you know me, you know how big of a statement that is.

Mettie Spiess lost two brothers to suicide. Now, as you can imagine, these two events shook her family to its core.

However, Mettie did something that many of us probably wouldn’t do. Rather than shutting down, she channeled her love for her brothers into a movement to remove the stigma around mental illness to rid the world of suicide.

I won’t lie, this episode is a heavy one.

However, more than that, this episode is one of hope. Mettie delivers such a powerful message about how precious life is and how important it is that we love and support one another.
