Keeping Faith

I Bashed My Brains In And I’m Grateful For It

July 2, 2020

When a wakeboarding accident left Leah Nielsen unable to read, walk straight or use a computer, she knew her life would never be the same.


But that turned out to be a blessing.


Leah and I talk about how in the 5 years since her accident, she’s had to lean on her faith for everything.


She shares her struggle with depression and grief. But how through her suffering, she’s realized she isn’t alone.


And she reflects on how losing the life she planned has given her opportunity and purpose she wouldn’t otherwise have.


Because how do you find your footing, when you can’t walk in a straight line?
