Hosted by Rinsley Phelps
In this episode of The Super Girl Guide: The Radio Show, the topic was “You Matter.” To start the show, Callie and Rinsley shared their Power Words with each other and talked about how they are going to use their new Power Words in their everyday lives. After the Power Words, the girls had a discussion about the topic for this week and how important it is to love and appreciate yourself; no matter the circumstance, you can overcome. Along with self-worth, the girls also introduced suicide awareness. This week, we had on special guests LeAnn Hull and Katie Mesenbrink. LeAnn shared her very personal story about her son and talked about her organization she created in memory of her son called Andy’s Sunshine Foundation. LeAnn’s personal saying is “You Matter.” This week’s topic was very special and important, but also very emotional. Callie and Rinsley then discussed workbook questions, questions from friends and finally to end the show, they shared their Promise Cards.

Ever since Rinsley was little, she knew she would be a singer. She had her first solo when she was three. Then at six she started performing in musical theater.
Trying new things, Rinsley found figure skating. She had an instant connection with the ice. After she passed all of her basic skills and free skate classes she began to skate competitively. After her 14th birthday she got second place in the 2012 Mid Atlantics Championships in New York. Shortly after received 3rd place in the 2012 South Pacific Regionals.
At the beginning of 2013 Rinsley broke her ankle while skating. Once she healed and was back on the ice, she did not feel the same connection she once had. She made the heart breaking decision to quit skating. Although, this was the hardest decision for her, it was the best and changed her life forever.
It was during this tough time that Rinsley had entered a singing competition. With no professional help she won first place and continued to the Grand Finals. That was it! She decided she would be a singer and that’s exactly what she did.
In May of 2013, Rinsley found her way to radio with KidStar Radio Network. KidStar worked with Rinsley to help facilitate her dream of hosting a radio show discussing the indie music scene.
Rinsley is always grateful to God, family and friends for opportunities that she has the privilege of being a part of. Rinsley will never stop singing and she will never settle for less than her dreams!
