Manage episode 346420582 series 2865608
What do you do when you sense a calling that you didn’t see coming? If you’re struggling with doubt or insecurity to make a pivot or outrun your past (and/or if you’re a 90’s kid who is curious what one of your favorite stars has been up to) then this week’s episode is a must! Comedian, actor, producer, author, fun dad of four – and now, youth pastor, Kel Mitchell, joins Paula for an uplifting conversation that will encourage anyone needing a reminder that they are more than worthy of their calling.
Kel’s jaw-dropping journey had him cracking up kids on Nickelodeon's “All That,” “Keenan and Kel,” “Good Burger” and more… and eventually led him to answering the call to encourage, inspire and pastor kids in his church, a testament he credits to God’s unique calling on each of us - “there’s no comparison.” In this episode Kel takes Paula behind the scenes from his foiled SNL audition to his private struggles with addiction, divorce and deep depression. He also tells Paula about his hilarious new Young Adult book, “Prank Day” ... add this one to your gifting list and the kids in your life will thank you later!
