About The Podcast

Sean Knox, the co-owner and president of Columbus-based Knox Pest Control, has long had a passion for mountain climbing—one that recently took him to the peak of Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the Western Hemisphere. For him, though, the climb was about more than just thrills and the once-in-a-lifetime view from 22,838 feet up; Sean found that the natural wonder of the mountain brought him closer to God and enriched his prayer life like never before. Sean talks with Nate Dewberry this week about the trip up the mountain as well as more down-to-earth topics, including keeping passions from turning into obsessions and countering the self-doubt that eats away at all of us.
