THIS IS EPISODE 487 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Rachel Baribeau is a professional encourager. She is the founder of “Changing the Narrative,” a movement promoting positive mental health and encouragement for students, professionals and parents to create an individual legacy of purpose, passion and platform.
Baribeau is also the host of the “Be Kings — Changing the Narrative” podcast, and speaks to college athletic teams across the country, encouraging them and showing them they are more than just an athlete.
A graduate of Auburn University’s broadcast journalism program, Baribeau has delivered insightful commentary as a sports broadcaster to millions of fans via national broadcasters such as FOX Sports, ESPN, CBS Sports, Yahoo and SiriusXM.
On this episode of the podcast, we welcome Baribeau back to the show to talk about finding purpose in her pain, how the loss of her mom brought her closer to Jesus, why she’s passionate about helping student-athletes, and how the Lord helped her through a dark time in her life.
Listen to me, please, athletes (and others): you need to have people around you that will tell you the TRUTH, even if its hurts.Yes men/women are dangerous. They smile to your face, don't hold you accountable and likely wont be there for the consequences. #ImChangingtheNarrative
