Lessons Learned from Experiencing Tragedy

by May 4, 2020

This is my raw and honest story.

In this episode, I open up about an extremely harrowing experience I had while climbing Longs Peak with a buddy before seeing him fall off a cliff and pass away. This is my story, raw, honest, and unsugar-coated about the lessons I learned through experiencing a loss of a dear buddy. If you are sensitive to stories like this, I recommend NOT listening to this episode as I have plenty of other more positive messages on the Johnny King Show. Thank you for all the love and support and I continue to pray for the healing of his family and close friends.
