    44: Being Mindful Part 4 - A Conversation on Suicide with Cecelia Chai

    44: Being Mindful Part 4 - A Conversation on Suicide with Cecelia Chai

    Suicide affects many people around the world, including Christians. One person every 40 seconds dies by suicide, and for every person who dies by suicide, more than 20 others attempt suicide. It’s the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds globally. Maybe you’ve experienced suicidal thoughts or know someone who has struggled with them as well.

    So with that in mind, how we do navigate thoughts of suicide as Christians? Or maybe we know someone who is struggling with suicide, how can we minister to those people? In today’s episode, I had a chance to ask these questions to my Penang mom, Cecelia Chai. Cecelia has dealt with suicidal thoughts on a few occasions, and both of us have experienced the challenges that come with reaching out to someone who is suicidal. Really think I really hope the insights we share can be meaningful to you as we understand suicide from a faith perspective.

    43: Being Mindful Part 3 - Rachel Arner on Dealing with Depression

    Depression is a challenging thing to process and deal with. So how do we navigate this tough season as Christians? Or how can we help someone who is struggling with depression? In this episode, I invite fellow podcaster Rachel Arner to share her experience with depression and how God led her through that tough season in her life. She also provides a lot of insight into ministering to someone who is depressed and more!

    42: Being Mindful Part 2 - Navigating Anxiety with Wendy Wang

    42: Being Mindful Part 2 - Navigating Anxiety with Wendy Wang

    Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses, affecting roughly 1 in 5 people around the world. And I’m sure you’ve had moments of anxiety in your life, maybe times where you were overwhelmed by your anxious thoughts. So do we approach anxiety in our lives? What do we do when the thoughts of worry, fear, and/or doubt overwhelm and paralyze us? Do medication and counseling play a role, and if so, how? In this episode, I have a chance to interview my friend Wendy Wang about the topic of anxiety. She shares her experiences with anxiety, how God led her throughout that time up to now, and what to do when you or you someone you care about is experiencing anxiety.

    40: Love and Relationships Part 7 - Healthy Families with Dr. Shee

    All of us have experienced what it means to be a part of a family, and as we all know, families have their ups and downs. So what causes families to be broken? How do we actively play a role in creating healthy, godly families? And what does it mean to “honor your parents” while staying true to who God called you to be? In this episode, I have the honor of interviewing Dr. Shee, someone that played an active role during my mission year in Penang. Dr. Shee shares his journey as a parent and the lessons he’s learned along the way, and he addresses these questions and more!

I have really enjoyed each of your episodes. They are jam packed with conversations, real stories, and practical take aways for my spiritual life. I’m truly blessed to have heard these narratives and see how I can continue and share mine. Have a listen you won’t regret it.
