We create a safe space where women can be transparent about life's hard truths. Some of the conversations are difficult ones, but they are all real and relevant and so we sit down to have these transparent, heart-to-heart discussions which provide women with practical nuggets on how to navigate the real life issues they encounter on their journey of faith.

Whilst there are several channels through which women can engage in dialogue, many still long for the opportunity to go beyond the surface conversations and Christian jargon. There are still women who desire the opportunity to treat real life issues with transparency and truth. Who are looking for practical, scripture-supported guidance for daily living. It is these women that we are called to serve and for whom Couch Conversations has been created.

    Naked and Unashamed

    In this episode of our Couch Conversations podcast, Reverend Denise Hinkson Lawrence joins our host, Kareem Lee, to speak about the power of being naked and unashamed before God.
    Reverend Denise shares how women can tap into new dimensions of liberty and power by unmasking. What is unmasking? It's removing pretense and excuses and standing before God. By doing this, she dismantles the weight of human opinion, limiting beliefs, guilt, pride, and shame and allows Him to help her discover her true self.
    Reverend Denise H Lawrence is a Mindset-Shifter, with a passion for transforming lives. Her signature program 'ReBirth' allows women to overcome imposter syndrome, discover their identity, increase confidence, and eliminate comparison and perfectionism for a purposeful life. Denise is a Wife, Mother, Evangelist, Global Podcaster, Author, Writer, Conference Host, International Speaker, Coach, and Mentor with a mandate to empower women in personal, spiritual, and leadership development. Denise guides women in navigating difficult experiences, dismantle harmful messages about self-worth, pivot their pain to purpose, and become empowered. Reverend Denise strongly believes that "There is therapeutic value in shared stories".

    Episode 20: Faith, Mental Health and Emotional Well-being

    Episode 20: Faith, Mental Health and Emotional Well-being

    It is often thought that being strong means not needing help and that, if a person does reach out for help, they may be considered weak. This notion is also present amongst Believers who consider that seeking help, especially when it relates to matters of a mental or emotional challenge, could mean that the person is weak in their faith or is lacking in spiritual discipline. Mindsets like these cause mental health concerns to often go unaddressed in faith communities.
    Our guest today, Mrs. Feona Charles-Richards, is simply a lover of people. That love has pushed her into seeking ways to make lives better. She is passionate about issues concerning Mental Wellness and Neurodevelopmental challenges.
    Feona is a licensed Clinical Psychologist, who holds a BSc in Psychology with Sociology and an MSc in Clinical Psychology. She is also a trained Neurolinguistic and Mental Emotional Release practitioner.

    Feona believes strongly that thoughts become actions and in order to have extraordinary outcomes there must be a shift in thinking. She continues to seek opportunities to educate the community about Mental Health challenges across various platforms.

    Ep18: Are you really ready for marriage?

    Ep18: Are you really ready for marriage?

    Are you really ready for marriage? 
    Relationship experts say that all problems in relationships, marriages included, stem from unmet expectations. Sadly, even within our Christian circles, such expectations are often unrealistic or have origins outside of the Word of God.
    The question, "are you really ready for marriage?" is treated lightly by some. But, others know all too well the heartache, disappointment, and regret that results when readiness for marriage is not properly addressed before making a commitment.
    _
    This faith couple, the Bumhiras, opened their hearts in a transparent conversation, to be a blessing to those who may be considering marriage or the "idea of marriage". 
     
    ps. this series on relationships has been added to our agenda based on the opportunity we have had to see the experiences of women who have been hurt by broken relationships.
