About the episode

"I want to cultivate a culture of life in my daily life." Krista Corbello was raised Catholic and lived in a very culturally Catholic place, and this meant that she didn't have to think too much about calling herself 'pro-life'. But a human rights talk and meeting her biological father helped her to see herself in the pro-life movement. She started to speak out about her mother's story, and over time learned more about her own story of origin. In learning about a sibling who she lost to abortion, she started the non-profit Even This Way, a place to provide siblings and families healing and community. In this episode, Krista shares the relationship between her faith and pro-life journey, what she's learned from running Even This Way, and her desire to be an open heart in the world.


**Content warning: In this episode, Krista and I talk about abortion. Listener discretion is advised.

Meet Krista Corbello

Krista Corbello is a Filipino-American speaker, activist, and artist. She is the founder of Even This Way, co-founder of Friendship Explored, and president of Rehumanize International. Her work in Catholic ministry, nonprofit communications, pro-life/consistent life ethic education and activism, leadership development, and music is extensive. Previously with Louisiana Right to Life, she has given hundreds of presentations to more than 30,000 people nationwide, including training more than 1,000 high school and college student leaders. In 2018, she was the winner of Rehumanize International's Create | Encounter pro-life arts contest with her original song, "I'll Love You." This sparked her desire to use "beautility" (effective beauty) in her outreach, education, activism, and ministry. She is currently pursuing her M.S. in Psychology from Divine Mercy University (God willing she will complete her program in October 2021!) She wants to use her education to help others flourish in the pursuit of vocation, serve sibling survivors of abortion, and cultivate a culture of life. Her most cherished roles are godmother, sister, daughter, and friend, as her loved ones have helped her embrace the joy of the Gospel and the joie de vivre!
