Brendan is a producer of the show, who knew me before church hierarchy and becoming a pastor. We’ve reconnected through the solidarity of leaving religion and have found common ground in working through our wounds with therapists to heal our lives, marriages, relationships, and so much more. Brendan's experiences, stories, and lessons he's learned will be helpful to every listener.
CJ was a "PK". For those of you that don't know that term - Preacher's Kid. CJ was also an addict, a felon, a convict, and now ex-con, husband, and dad. A life far from the goodie too shoes ideal of a Preacher's Kid, but not too far from the reality of a lot of us that grew up in "ministry" life. He is a constant learner and learned a lot in prison. This episode is his story.
