#67. From Prison to Purpose: Recovered Addict Shay Walters
Show Notes

What do you do when you hit absolute rock bottom in your life--when you've lost all that matters in your past and in your future? You start living out any purpose that you can find.
Shay Walters is a wife, mother, and a nine-time convicted felon.  She delved into the abyss of drug addiction. Having lost custody of her son and facing a possible two-decade prison sentence, she changed her life around completely. She gave up her previous impulsive ways of living only for momentary pleasure. She committed herself to vision for her life that was bigger than her.  Now, out of prison, she and her husband run an out-treatment rehabilitation center for others in addiction. 
In this episode, you'll learn about 

  • Why some young people don't engage purpose
  • How to live purposefully with few, if any, resources
  • Having a bigger picture for your life
  • Using the problems of our past to help others
  • How a sense of entitlement can block finding purpose
