Frenchie Davis, truth slayer and world-renowned vocalist, joins us for a deeply soulful and spiritual episode of Open Deeply. Frenchie’s “dark night of the soul” began when a doctor informed her that she had a split uterus rendering her unable to have children and in need of surgery fast. Simultaneously, her close friend, Chadwick Boseman, passed suddenly sending her into an intense grief spiral. And if that wasn’t enough, a narcissistic lover was wreaking havoc on her psyche and emotional stability. But you can’t keep a good woman down for long. Frenchie tells us her story of how she took her power back through a monumental spiritual and healing journey that led to an unexpected “hot girl summer” with more fine and kind men surrounding her than ever before. Often blessings and awakenings happen after the hardest of times and Frenchie’s story confirms this. We hope you join us for this amazing episode of Open Deeply.
