These Celebrities Say Their Spiritual Journeys Have Benefitted Their Lives And Careers – Forbes

Now with Natalie is a documentary series on Hillsong Channel featuring Hailey Bieber, Kelly Rowland, Tyson Chandler, and other celebrities. The six episodes, executive produced and hosted by Natalie Manuel Lee, feature insightful conversations with some of todays leading figures in entertainment, sports and fashion sharing how their spiritual journeys have positively impacted their lives and careers. The aim is to lift the veil on celebrity, exploring how a culture of compete and compare leads to many stars grappling with industry pressure, social media versus self-worth, defining happiness on your own terms, and leading a more purpose-filled life.

Natalie Manuel Lee is the producer and host of "Now with Natalie."

Lee is a celebrity stylist by day who served as brand manager for her brother Jerry Lorenzos brand Fear of God before leaving the company to pursue her own life purpose.The shows first season features Hailey Bieber, daughter of Stephen Baldwin and wife of Justin Bieber, on how her spirituality helped her to create her own identity and find her purpose outside of her familys legacy. Kelly Rowland discusses her humble beginnings, becoming a member of Destinys Child, and how tapping into her spirituality helped her find her identity as a solo artist. Los Angeles Lakers Center Tyson Chandler talks about what purpose looks like in an industry where value is determined by performance, and the role spirituality has played in his athletic career.

The main message of the show is that our worth and value does not lie in material things, how much money we have, how famous we are, or our job titles, says Lee. Now with Natalie breaks down these false narratives. Being your authentic self is the key to achieving a sense of purpose and happiness. The celebrities I interview on the show are open and honest about their struggles with shaping their own identities, depression, the compete and compare epidemic, fame, and so on.

Lee encourages celebrities to share how their spirituality has helped them to thrive.

After studying communications in college, Lee interned for CBS. She then moved to Los Angeles, where she began styling celebrities and collaborating with her brother to help build his clothing line, Fear of God. But these days, she feels she has truly tapped into her life purpose, which is creating Now with Natalie. With the show, my aim is to inspire people. The lessons learned and the truth being told by my guests will help serve viewers, she says. We live in a culture that glorifies celebrity. There is power in hearing these famous people vocalize their struggles because weve all been through some version of them. It helps us heal ourselves.

Lee herself suffered from depression after transitioning out of her work for Fear of God. She realized that she was allowing her job title to determine her self-worth. So, she turned to her faith, her family, and her friends for support, opening up to them about her problems in an authentic way. This awakening led to her creating Now with Natalie in order to help other people heal.

To young people interested in finding their life purpose, Lee says, Get to know yourself and who you really are. Then youll understand your purpose and why youre here. These days, its easy for young people to scroll on social media and compare themselves and their lives to someone elses. Run your own race. Success is not defined by your job title or material things money, cars, clothes, etc. Understand the tools you need to truly sustain yourself and stay encouraged.
