Cristabelle Braden – Hope Survives

Cristabelle Braden is a courageous young woman who continually defies the odds. She had a severe brain injury that could have cost her her life. Doctors didn’t expect her to even make it through high school. Her story of continually overcoming setbacks is inspiring.

She is an award-winning singer, songwriter, speaker, author, and host of the podcast Declaration Life.

Cristabelle has been invited to speak to members of Congress in the U.S. about brain injury.

I had the honour of speaking with her for this week’s episode of my podcast, Bleeding Daylight.

You can find Bleeding Daylight wherever you find podcasts or listen via the player below.

  • This was an excellent interview. A delightful young lady with a tremendous story and the fact she gave God glory is even better.
