“Your greatest tragedy isn’t the thing that’s happened to you. But it’s how you’ve let it shape your life if it’s happening in a negative way.”

– Meredith Kirk

Last week in Part 1 of this episode, Meredith Kirk opened up about the violent tragedy that befell her family at a young age and how that pain drove her to overachieve in school and career – at a price paid in health, solitude, and anger. In this second half of the story, we hear about the void left by her father, the moment when suppressed emotions finally crashed down, and how she’s turned the corner to now living a life of service, family, and community in a confluence of events that Meredith can explain only as Divine Intervention.

“It shocks me now even thinking about it. The only explanation to me is Divine Intervention. I’m at a point in my life now where I see all of the different sets of events that have taken place and I just can’t believe that all of those things are coincidences.”
