Think you have nothing in common with the guitar slaying, multi-platinum, international touring artist Korey Cooper from the band Skillet?

She’s wife to band’s front-man John, a mother to two teenagers, and working in a man’s world as a performer, songwriter, and producer.

Ultimately Korey is right there with the rest of us, finding the grit and grace to be exactly who she’s meant to be. This conversation is an honest chat that every strong woman will enjoy.
