What Losing Everything I Own Taught Me About Jesus ft. Kallin Zehren

"If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." - Jesus. 

When Kallin, a Tulane student, came home from dinner at her sorority house to find her home burning down, it was a radical moment in her life. Jesus didn't ask her to give Him her possessions--he straight up took 'em. Kallin and I have a conversation on what it was like to lose everything she owned, how the Lord used the tragedy to instill in her gratitude, and what the generosity of others taught her about God. 

I've known Kallin for four years and she's an inspiring, amazing young woman. I'm so happy to be able to share our chat with you today!

Topics discussed:

  • How Kallin helped the Tulane Catholic Center grow and flourish 
  • How to evangelize when the community isn't exactly ripe for evangelization

  • How humbling it is to go from being the "giver" to the "receiver"
