In Part 1 of this interview, Deirdre Van Nest describes how she tragically lost her mother as a young girl. For decades, she thought God hated her and couldn't make sense of why this tragedy was allowed to happen to her. As a result, she wanted nothing to do with God. But through meeting a Christian friend in college who had an undeniable peace and joy, Deirdre began to question what her friend had that she did not–and if, just maybe, it had something to do with this God she wanted nothing to do with.
So through scriptural study and prayer, Deirdre set out to investigate for herself if the claims of Christianity were true, and who Jesus really was. She discovered the Truth was nothing like what she thought. In fact, God was so real and personally invested in her life that He began to lead her into her heart's desires, specifically in the realm of business and entrepreneurship. This eventually led to the thriving business she now owns, but it in a way she never would have asked or imagined for herself. Make sure you stay tuned for next's week follow-up in Part 2 of this remarkable interview!
