Kendra Von Esh
Kendra Von Esh was a Corporate Executive who thought she had it all—money, prestige, power and bought into the “me” culture. She devoured all the pleasures this world had to offer but nothing satisfied her desire to “Find Something More” and her life filled with stress, anxiety and never being good enough continued as the norm. She bought into the lie that life was not supposed to be peaceful and loving … that it was stressful and difficult so party hard because life is short.
