This week, former Bachelor star and Bachelorette contestant Ben Higgins joins Heather for an insightful conversation about the emptiness of fame, the criticism he faced as a Christian on a reality-television dating show, and why authentic connections with people are more important than having millions of social media followers.

Higgins is also garnering attention as an author. His new book, Alone in Plain Sight: Searching for Connection When You’re Seen but Not Known, explores his struggles with loneliness and insecurity, and shows how he finds ultimate hope in his connection with God. Find Ben on Instagram @higgins.ben.
