Leah was invited as a 2-part guest on the Transforming Discipleship podcast, which released April 27th through Christianity Today’s smallgroups.com.
In this episode, Oliver Hersey is joined by Leah Darrow, author of “The Other Side of Beauty” and Kelsey Collister, who produces his podcast. Leah walks through her conversion story which includes three key moments: moving to St. Louis as a fifteen year old, encountering Jesus during a fashion modeling photoshoot, and asking her family for help, when she was at a low point. All of these events lead her to a life of discipling women, so they can know who they really are, in light of God’s mercy.
She bought into the world’s definition of success, and self-fulfillment. Because of this, she put all of her stock into her outward appearance. Eventually, she was a contestant on America’s Next Top Model. Soon after, she found herself in state of spiritual despair. Listen to this podcast to find out how she left the modeling industry, to start her own women’s ministry.
