I originally hail from the Lone Star State, so please don’t be surprised if a “y’all” or “fixin’ to” slips out. Those are ingrained in Texans from birth and are very difficult to remove from our vocabulary.
I’ve been in radio since 1995 when I switched majors from music to Radio/TV because of a guy in that department that was a dead-ringer for Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block. (True story!) I worked in everything from country to Top 40 until 2012 when God called me into Christian radio, and I’ve never looked back.
Things didn’t work out with Joey 2.0, but that’s okay because God had other plans for me! I am married to a wonderful man named Jason who, for some reason, puts up with me even after more than a decade of being married to me. We don’t have any children, but we do collect pets like it’s our full-time job. We hope to foster to adopt at some point, and we’d love to run our own animal rescue that doubles as a place to not only find animals a forever home, but also provides ministry to kids in the foster care system as they learn the different hardships the animals have overcome to find their way to a new life of freedom.
I have struggled with mental health issues my entire life, and I’m a firm believer that it’s okay to not be okay, and it’s more than okay to ask for help.
By the way, if you enjoy reading, I’d love to have you be a part of the official Kankelfritz & Friends Facebook book club group. Every time we read a new book, the author who wrote it leads the discussion posts. Just look for “Mysti’s Book Nook” on Facebook! You can find the official podcast of the same name anywhere you get your podcasts for interviews with your favorite authors!
Mysti is available for speaking engagements to share her testimonies involving mental health and forgiveness. Feel free to email her at email@example.com.
Thanks for spending your mornings with Family Life Radio!
