JT Mestdagh

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

First, though…


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!

– JT Mestdagh

A segment from my book I’m writing

Some people are born without an appendix. Some who have a lot of surgeries (like me) can lose them during procedures. If I didn’t have one, Dr. Pena was going to have to create one, which would add hours to the operation. He most likely wouldn’t have time for a few...
