The Gift of Desperation

I tried to not act like a Superfan. Did it work? A real BLOWFISH is on the podcast! Jim Sonefeld, the drummer from the band that defined the 90s, Hootie & The Blowfish, shares his story of how the Gift of Desperation was the BEST thing that’s ever happened.

If you have found yourself in a desperate season in life, where you don’t know where to turn to get help, and you have no clue how to move forward. THIS PODCAST IS AWESOME FOR YOU!

4 Ways You Can Rebuild Your Life After a Fall

[3:52] Take the risk! I asked my favorite question: What’s the bravest thing you’ve done in your life? Listen to the story of how Jim took a risk to play Division 1 Soccer and how that led him to this little college band, “Hootie & The Blowfish”

[11:24] To Heal You Have to Admit Jim’s revealing story of the moment he heard other people talking about his drinking problem. He had to sit in the mirror and admit life wasn’t working for him.

[24:10] It’s never too late and never too early to ask for help. Why would you want to handle everything on your own anyway?

[40:23] The Gift Of Desperation G.O.D. When Jim had the gift of desperation is when he started to see he had a need for God, I need for a higher power.
