My guest today is a world-class DJ, musician, producer, and reality show star who’s worked with many well-known individuals. I’m so honored that he’s come on the podcast to share his story with us. It’s an example of how those who go through the most devastating circumstances can overcome, move forward, and make incredible changes in their lives.

Zeke Thomas is thankful he’s been given the opportunity to use his story to help others in a variety of areas. He and I shared many things in common, including a past that includes sexual abuse. But we both see our stories as the stories of overcoming. I hope you listen to this episode so you can benefit in one of two ways… either by better understanding the issues that arise in a person’s life when they are abused, or by being helped in your own healing journey.
