The Messy Table with Trish Helsel [Ep. 28: Authenticity + Courage]

Welcome to The Messy Table! An ordinary space for real women, imperfect stories, and the God who’s at work in our mess. Today’s guest is my sweet friend—the beautiful, the wise, the contagiously joyful—Trish Helsel.

Trish is the Executive Women’s Director for Kanakuk Kamps, as well as a mama of three adults, mentor to countless girls + women all over the globe, and a personal inspiration to me. We first met when I was a kamp counselor back in college and, let me tell you, it would be tough to find someone who’s more encouraging, more of a truth-teller, and more on mission to love people and make disciples than Trish.

Trish has lead through some hard situations, walked through a heartbreaking divorce, and trudged through some extremely difficult parenting moments, BUT God hasn’t left her for even one second. In this episode, Trish is sharing her secrets on finding courage, loving authentically, and how she has the guts to persevere. You don’t want to miss it!
