Struggling In Silence: Mental Illness & The Church || Dressed for Battle Podcast Ep.2

Mental Illness and The Church:

I met up with Nana Yaa Ansah, the faith and wellness influencer behind @themidimaven. This episode gets real, real quick as we discuss a topic that isnt talked about until it’s too late. One that is almost taboo to not only society, but even the Christian community: mental health. Nana opens up about the psychotic breakdown that changed everything — we have the conversation about being mindful of calling people crazy and the debate on whether or not mental illness is a health thing, a spiritual thing or both. The topic of mental illness and the church should be loud and clear in order to better assist those we love! In our hopes to dispel misconceptions, you’ll leave here prayerful and with some practical tips for check ins with Christ every moment of your life. Armor up, ladies! Let’s get into talking mental health and how to defeat the mind games of the enemy. #dressedforbattlepodcast

Singleness as a Christian Woman, A Silent God & Savoring His Love in Loss || Dressed for Battle Podcast Ep.1

Hey, everyone! Have  you listened to episode 1 on my new podcast show, Dressed for Battle?


I sit down with warrior woman Sade Solomon (@sadesolomon) to share her current struggles. You’ll hear about how she went from embracing her singleness as a Christian woman…to being fed up. You’ll relate to how she’s awaiting answers from God. And after recently losing her father, you’ll be encouraged to hear how God demonstrates His love as the good, good Father He is. Throughout listening to her testimony-in-the-making, I pray you too adopt the things that help her keep going.

The Reward for Your Obedience to God – What Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

This time last year, I enthusiastically said “yes” to attending my church mission trip. Moments after agreeing to the last-minute opportunity, a Pinterest photo popped unto my iPhone screen. It reminded me that sometimes God calls us to a place far away, away from what we know in order to truly reconnect Him.


At a time where I was dealing with emotional heaviness, the trip gave me purpose. I knew God wanted me there. I came home rejuvenated and excited to continue to share God’s love and resuscitating hope.


When the time came to write my name down on the list for this year’s trip, I said “yes” again… I didn’t know that assured answer would soon waver.

Spread Love Wherever You Are

It makes my heart smile receiving “I love you” texts. The “I love you’s,” the “I’m thinking of you’s,” the “I’m praying for you” texts. And just as much as I appreciate getting them, I enjoy sending them. At random, of course. It’s sometimes much more meaningful when you catch them by surprise.


It started when I was in high school. I’d have an urge so heavy to reach out and let whoever that was on my heart know that they mattered, they’re appreciated and they’re loved. I used to be real stingy with it, at first. For me, I didn’t see the point in sharing the message until God slapped me in the face like, but why not? What does showing love take out of you?


Nothing. It takes nothing.
