Beliefcast

Welcome to Todd Sylvester Inspires Beliefcast Podcast. Upon that little word, belief, hang all our sorrows and all our joys.

Christian Smith

Christian Smith fought hard to overcome his addiction and now lives a life of helping others who are struggling with the same.  Christian was born and raised in Utah and served a mission for his church in South Africa. Upon completion of his mission, he returned home and married his wife of nearly 40 years, Kelle.

 

Quickly into the marriage, Christian began “self-medicating” his emotional pain with opiates, introduced by a motorcycle accident. Alcohol soon followed, along with gambling, pornography, inappropriate relationships outside of marriage, and finally the “coup de grace”...crack cocaine.  Spiritually bankrupt and with family, friends, neighbors, God, and especially with himself.

 

When one looks for a change in a person, they look for someone who is being honest, who is dependable, good with people, and works hard – this is who Christian is now.  Tune in and you will be inspired by his amazing story.

Chandler Turley use to believe that he was worthless but now knows his value and loves who he is!  Chandler was born and raised in Salt Lake City and went to Olympus High School.  He grew up in a small close-knit family with two brothers.  He served an LDS mission in Auckland New Zealand.  Shortly after his mission, his 10-plus year battle with addiction started.

 

Just over two years ago Chandler entered Wasatch Recovery where he learned the tools he needed to save his life and beat his addiction.  Chandler graduated with a degree in Sports Medicine from the University of Utah and is currently getting his Masters's in clinical psychology with a goal of working in the field of mental health and addiction.

Beau Millett

Beau Millett should not be alive but he is here being an inspiration to all of us!  Beau was in a serious car accident where he was ejected and thrown between 40-100 feet.  He suffered a compound fracture in his right Femur and broke nearly every bone in his face and a Le Forte lll fracture.  But most challenging was a severe Traumatic Brain Injury in which he had to have a piece of his skull removed to relieve pressure on his brain.  Along with regaining the function of his body, he also battled infection on his brain over the next year adding more complications along the way.

 

With his faith and Family Beau has persevered through this trial, has remained positive, and hopes to show others that regardless of the challenges you face you can push through and make the most of it!

 

Beau's story will inspire you to push through your own struggles and challenges.  Tune in and enjoy!

Hannah Allen

Hannah Allen lost her husband but that did not stop her from cultivating an amazing attitude. She says, “Dream the Impossible Dream - For with God nothing shall be impossible.” As a child, she developed a love for competitive swimming and was blessed to swim in college, first at BYU, and then after a church mission, Dixie State University. 

 

Hannah met and fell madly in love with 1st Lieutenant “Kage” Allen. He was a fighter pilot for United States Air Force at the time and flew the F-15 eagle. Though her relationship with Kage had many obstacles thrown at it, it never felt like it was too much. From long-distance dating to even death we have been blessed to grow even closer together.

 

Hannah’s story will inspire you to believe that you can do anything! Tune in and enjoy her Beliefcast.
