Eric Stephens – Rejection to Redemption and Purpose

In this episode of Bleeding Daylight, I interview Eric Stephens, a pastor, life coach, and founder of Redwood Christian Ministries. Eric shares his powerful journey from a difficult childhood marked by the absence of his biological father and struggles with addiction and depression, to a transformative encounter with the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ. Through candid storytelling, Eric reflects on his past, including the pivotal moment when he prayed for God’s presence during his grandmother’s battle with cancer, leading to a profound spiritual awakening.

Eric’s testimony highlights the themes of redemption and purpose as he discusses how his faith reshaped his identity and mission. Now, he passionately dedicates his life to equipping and inspiring others to live fully in Christ. Through his ministry and podcast, Rooted in Christ, Eric reaches out to those seeking hope and transformation, demonstrating the power of authentic faith and community. This episode is a moving exploration of personal healing and the relentless pursuit of a life dedicated to God’s calling.
