“There are no bad days, only hard days.”

JT Mestdagh

Hi! I’m JT Mestdagh, and I’m on a mission!

First, though…

WHO AM I?

I’m a motivator, an encourager, a fixer, a can-do kind of guy. (I’m also kind of a jokester — one of my nicknames is Jester!)

I believe faith and attitude are EVERYTHING!

I want to share my story so people who feel alone or discouraged might feel, well, less alone and more confident!

{
I LOVE being in nature — I feel closer to God there. It allows me to escape my challenges and lets me feel normal and happy!
