Briell Decker, One-Time Wife of Warren Jeffs but Wow, So Much More!
From cult victim to advocate, Briell Decker re-wrote the story of her life. She grew up in a Fundamentalist Mormon sect (FLDS) in a family with 14 children and two mothers. She became the 65th wife of the prophet Warren Jeffs. After years of abuse and torment from Jeffs and his followers, Briell escaped by climbing out of a window and running barefoot to safety. After escaping the FLDS, she applied and was granted Warren Jeffs 28,000 sq foot home in Colorado City, AZ where she once lived as a wife.
Briell and husband Stevan stopped by my home studio this past week, August 2022. We talked about Briell’s life, and she recalled some of the traumatic events she encountered while a part of the FLDS. We also talked about the visit to Hawaii she and Stevan were able to take in 2021.
This episode will be impactful. Some may have desired more detail on various aspects of Briell’s life, but this was her story and she talked about things that she was comfortable discussing. For the most part, we kept things light and shared several laughs. But make no mistake, Briell; through her example, continues to inspire everyone, showing that anything is possible in life. She’s created hope, and refuge for other women and children leaving the FLDS.

Dave Klaproth Hawaii Dive Captain, Terminal Cancer Survivor, Hypnotherapist, Tells His Story
It's always fun to make a new friend and that's what Dave Klaproth is to me now, a friend. Dave's story is one not unlike many that have been shared on my podcast. Good times, times of difficulty but overall; a wonderful life journey.
From Dave's website:
As a merchant marine officer for more than 30 years, I have been fortunate to live a life of adventure. From sailing around the world, to living in faraway places like Hawaii, Japan and the Virgin Islands.
That life that I truly enjoyed though, suddenly took a turn in another direction. I was diagnosed with cancer and the doctors gave me months to live. Well, my attitude has always been carefree and easy going so I stayed as positive as I could and took the fight to my cancer.
During my treatment, things were mentally tough and between the pain and depression, my doctor recommended a hypnotherapist to me. That was the start of a life changing event. After a few sessions, the pain and depression became nearly non-existent. I credit my recovery to my family, friends and hypnotherapy. The power of positive thought and the feeling I had after hypnotherapy continued to help drive my recovery. I was amazed by that feeling and I remember saying to my doctor, "the hypnotherapy was amazing! Why isn't everyone doing this?!"
Spend an hour listening to Dave's story and I guarantee you too will feel like you have made a new friend. I just love positive people.

Christine Herbert Joined the Peace Corps, Got Malaria, Had Fun!
Un-con-trol-la-ble definition… Christine Herbert😊
As Christine and I talked, it became clear that she and I are very different. I like being in control, Christine, yeah; not so much.
Because of her personality, Christine has had quite a few extraordinary experiences, like spending twenty-seven months as a Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia. Or managing a non-profit in Nepal. After thinking about it, maybe we’re not that different. I did deliver Amazon for awhile.
Christine’s interview was fun and there’s a number of “life events” that we shared a laugh over. Her college experience was, well different. Great education, but no dancing. She got a degree in biology, but her career was mostly spent as a massage therapist. She talks about that too.
But a big part of her story was her Peace Corps experience. She recalls her Zambia time in her new book, “The Color of the Elephant”. She explains the title and it does not have anything to do with an elephant encounter.
Shane Dieter's Life Experiences Led Him to Question Everything
As I met with Shane and listened to his life story, I was struck by his resilience and how he reacted to the life experiences he encountered.
Like many, Shane spent much of his life searching for meaning, for answers. There were times he thought he had found the answers to his questions, but eventually concluded his questions were only partially answered. Or just maybe these partial answers brought about new questions.
So where did Shane's questions take him? Well, that's part of his story because over time, he knew that he needed to question everything, and when you question everything, you eventually question the unquestionable. So, has Shane found the answers that eluded him again and again? Listen in and find out.

Anze Tominsek. Addicted to Marijuana? He's Now Helping Others.
Marijuana. Many use it daily and it's becoming more and more acceptable, BUT, for Anze Tominsek, it became a problem.
In my interview with Anze, we talk about his upbringing in Slovenia, his move to the UK, a brief job in America, a move back to the UK, and how he ended up in Spain. Of course, there was a lot that went on and we talk about these things, as well as his relationship with marijuana and how he decided he needed to end his weed habit.
We also talk about what he's doing today to help others who too have had, or are having a problem with marijuana.

In this episode of Nobody Knows Your Story I visit with Tess Scott. Here is a brief bio from her Amazon book page which gives a pretty good introduction.

She began the Listen Sister- Encouragement for Women ministry in 2020 where you can find her blog posts at tessscott.com and her Listen, Sister pages on Facebook and Instagram. She continues to live her life of hilariously awkward moments in Sarnia Ontario to the ongoing embarrassment of her family.
As you listen to Tess discuss her life, she does include a few hilariously awkward moments. We also discuss her new book, Listen Sister! FINDING HOPE IN THE FREAKSHOW OF LIFE
Love this podcast
I am a teeny bit bias because I was invited to be on this podcast but I LOVE every episode. I suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) and this podcast keeps me in the loop of people I don’t know. Larry does such a great job getting people to open up. If you haven’t heard any of his guests stories, look him up and listen. Some of them are incredibly amazing. Get you FOMO fix.
So glad I found this podcast
I can always count on Larry to make my long commute fly by. His interviews are always interesting because he’s able to find the story in anybody’s life. And I love the Hawaii influence!
Fun and Entertaining!
First I’d like to say thank you to Larry Camp for sharing Nobody Knows Your Story! I so enjoy listening to the guests he brings on.
There are so many celebrity level guests (Henry Kapono, Terry Tucker, Wade Cambern and Karen Christoffersen to name a few), but there are also guests just like you and me. It’s always very interesting and well produced.
Larry also has a love of Hawaii and it is reflected in choice of music, which to be honest, is refreshing.
If you’re looking for some interesting interviews that are sometimes out of the norm, I highly recommend Nobody Knows Your Story.
