    Trials To Triumphs with Ashley Blaine Featherson-Jenkins

    Trials To Triumphs with Ashley Blaine Featherson-Jenkins

    In this candid interview with Ashley, Kelly Rowland gets real about questions she's never been asked. She describes the moment she knew she belonged on stage and reveals how her “tumultuous” relationship with her mother changed after she passed away. Kelly also speaks about her once estranged father, childhood trauma and the therapy that has helped her survive. She says her healed wounds have helped her teach her sons how to forgive others and themselves. Kelly describes what she calls “the gift of grace to oneself.” She also talks about the early days of Destiny’s Child and how she had an “unstoppable force” of belief and talent.

Keep It Coming!

I look forward to Thursdays and feel sad when there isn't a new episode to listen to.
Your Podcasts articulate so well, things I'd like to say if I had the platform.
Specifically speaking to the episode titled, Heterophobia, please please please explain how the dating game changes once you've been married and divorced. I'm really curious for some insight.

Love Thursday’s!!!

OMG, I love Ms. Demetria’s podcast. She is so real, vulnerable, smart, and eloquent. In my car I laugh, cry, and rejoice with her. Keep it coming Demetria!! Francine

Weekly pleasure

I have been a fan of Demetria Lucas since her days of A Belle in Brooklyn vlog. Her advice are always on point and her voice is necessary. It's like chatting with a friend on various of literally ratchet and respectable issues. Her podcast also allows us to hear from experts who don't always get a microphone.
