Life Led Her to Incarceration: Second Chances with Amanda Acker
Today I have the pleasure of having the host of Let the Good Things In Show with Amanda Acker.
I was drawn to her positivity and wanted to have her on my show to tell us about her story. After her parents divorced, it started a cycle of family and emotional trauma that continued for years. Her senior year in high school took her from a top student to barely graduating and regularly drinking alcohol, which led to promiscuity – all in an effort to get the attention of her dad. Her attention and love seeking continued for years, which included a time in prison, giving up her children, and abusing drugs.
We talk about how we are not defined by our past and her healing journey that has included starting her podcast, and connecting with others who have also found themselves incarcerated.
Listen and learn from this strong woman about how you can find the good in everything – even in a traumatic past.
