    39: Interview with Screenwriter and Painter, Kafia Haile

    Listen in on my interview with fellow Spelman graduate, screenwriter, and painter, Kafia Haile. Kafia's story is one of leaps, risks, faith, and suspense. I hope that as we prepare for a New Year that you are able to hear her story and prepare to make some new decisions for your life as well.

    38: SPECIAL - Suicide Awareness with Dr. Debbie Stevens

    38: SPECIAL - Suicide Awareness with Dr. Debbie Stevens

    In this episode I had the opportunity to speak with mental health professional Dr. Debbie Stevens.  We talk about the intersection of mental health and Christianity, how to talk to your family or friends about suicide, ways that Christians can better breach or discuss the topic, how we felt about the series "13 Reasons Why", and how to get help if you are having these thoughts and feelings.

    A special shoutout was given in this episode to the Fireflies Unite Podcast with Kea so definitely check her out: https://www.firefliesunite.com/podcast

    Just as I was recording this episode, we learned that Pastor Andrew Stoecklein, of Inland Hills Church in Chino, CA, lost his life due to a suicide attempt the night before. His death has left many hurting, wondering why, and asking many questions.  There is a lot from Andrew's story and the commentary surrounding his death that can give us insight into the stress he was under just before taking his life and a possible understanding of God's response.

    See the last sermon Pastor Stoecklein preached before his attempt, and immediately after being instructed to take a sabbatical because of a recent nervous breakdown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVBe4z2QSRM

    See the commentary video after Pastor Stoecklein's funeral. I believe this video helps to reinforce what we communicated in this episode regarding God's ability to understand and cover and receive us, even when we are in deep, deep pain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b1ZOXA6Ydw

We both hope that you enjoy this special series of episodes to be released in between my standard shows. Album information is below.
