    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.

My Fav

I don’t think there has been one episode I’ve not like. I look forward to them all. It’s so good! It’s my weekly escape & time for a good laugh. However Friday’s expansion episode is my favorite and I related on so many levels. I love my business and life and for the most part I’m operating at a 10 😀..hunni that doesn’t mean I’m not dealing with the challenges of that 10. Yes we cultivate a life we love. Chile life will still life..lol…Thank you for your transparency. And I agree with you writing is your sweet spot & we look forward to reading & watching what’s ever next🙏🏾

Your faithful listeners don’t mind about the lateness or your taking hiatus. We miss you, yes, but we LOVE you more!

Favorite Podcast

I absolutely love Demetria and her take on all things pop culture from “our” perspective. Her views are insightful and on point and she has become a good friend in my head. I wait with baited breath each week for a new episode and when they drop we are rarely if ever disappointed. My one critique is that it is often difficult to hear her guest due to the devices used, but I’m sure that will improve as the podcast grows in popularity.
