You're about to think of Khloé Kardashian in a whole new way, or at least learn something about her that you didn't know before. The star opened up about her spiritual life, religious upbringing, father's death, and heartbreaking divorce in an essay she recently penned for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter, and the piece is very personal.
"When you think Kardashian, devout probably isn't the first thing that crosses your mind. Believe it or not, I come from a very religious family," Khloé opens the piece. "I've always been a very spiritual person. I believe with every fiber of my being that there is a higher power."
Kardashian got real about how her dad's passing impacted her life, as he was the one who first introduced her to God and church. "One of the most profound experiences of my life was when my dad passed away when I was 19," she continues. "After he passed, I was bitter and angry—I was VERY angry at God. I didn't understand why someone who was so great, my dad—why he would be taken away...But then I started to process the end of my father's life, and it changed something inside me."
And now, Kardashian is more at peace then ever before, praying regularly to thank God for her blessings and even reading daily devotionals to her glam squad. "Believing in a higher power is what guides me to make the right decisions. While I believe in heaven and hell and angels and spirits, I don't judge people for their beliefs. And I don't understand how others can sit around casting judgments on people because they have different religions and a certain point of view," Kardashian says. "I'm thankful that I can rely on my God, who, along with my family, has led me through some of the most difficult times of my life."
Dunham took to Instagram this morning to share the news, writing: "We are pretty thrilled she finally heard our call... Thank you for this lovely and generous of spirit @lennyletter piece @khloekardashian."
