Andrea Owen is back on the show! And let’s be real, as long as she keeps bringing the fire with her incredible books she will keep on coming back. She’s bringing out the raw, real truth. She talks about her upbringing, living in a family that refused to talk about the hard things in life, coming to terms with that, and learning to share her own story of healing. 


Question Highlights:

  • What was the first time you realized you wanted to share life lessons with people?
  • What was the moment when you started focusing on the roots of the problem?
  • What’s an observation of something in your life that you have to work hard to break?
  • What patterns are we passing down to the next generation?
  • What are most people struggling with right now?
  • What inspired your latest book?
