Celeste loves to encourage, challenge, and inspire others to be all that God has called them to be. She communicates with humor, authenticity, and a depth from her own life experiences. Her transparency is refreshing. She believes God does not waste one ounce of our pain- our stories are redeemed for His glory. She lives her life on and off the stage pretty much the same- transparent. She shares about the struggles and pains of her past in order to help others realize that we serve an awesome God who restores and redeems. He truly is who He says He is. He is a God of love, mercy, compassion, and grace. But most of all, He is a God of second chances.
