17| Mental Health and the Church (feat. Marcken Volmy)
May is Mental Health Awareness Month! And you may ask, why should we be aware of our mental health? Well, because the health of our psychological well-being is a very important part of our overall general health. On today's episode we are joined by licensed Mental Health Counselor and owner of Bedrock Counseling, Marcken Volmy. Marcken joins us to discuss what mental health is and why it's extremely important for us to take care of it. We also talk about why mental health may be a stigma in the Church today and how Church leaders can support the mental health of its parishioners.  Marcken is married with two beautiful daughters. He loves to travel, eat and engage in meaningful conversations with friends and family.

14| Be Angry But Do Not Sin
Ya'll I am angry! And so frustrated at the sin that is so rampant in our land that we struggle to see our brothers, sisters and neighbors in the image of God. So much so that the unjust murders of unarmed black and brown people by those who have taken an oath to protect said people is wreaking havoc on our nation. So, I'm angry and rightly so. In Ephesians 4:26, the Apostle Paul instructs us to be angry yet sin not; and don't let the sun go down on your anger. How sway? Sometimes the offense is so deep that I need a least of few days Paul.  In today's episode, I offer up a few suggestions for how to navigate this emotion in light of what's going on in our land. It is only by God's grace that we can explore forgiveness - first seeking God's forgiveness for our transgressions then trusting Him to help us to forgive our brothers and sisters.  Dearly beloved, take heart and know that God is sitting on the throne as the final and just judge. Believe in Him today for all of the help that you need to get through your go through.  Follow @jesusaffirmsme on Instagram

12| Christ, Coffee & Affirmed in Jesus (feat. Karlisha Vice)
Jesus is obviously all we ever need but coffee though... I'm actually not a fan of the very popular caffeinated drink but communing with friends, family and others over food and drink is what Jesus did and He did it often. Which is why I love the idea of this ministry my dear friend and today's episode guest, Karlisha Vice, leads.  Christ and Coffee is a ministry where Karlisha shares God's word via social media and have reached audiences that she otherwise may not have. Tune in to hear Karlisha talk about women finding their value and worth in Jesus and advice for choosing God's way over the way of the world. Karlisha is a lover of Jesus.

11| How Sweet is the name of Jesus (feat. Keisha Gaines)
You ever hear the name of Jesus referred to as "sweet", like the name of Jesus is so sweet or Emmanuel's name so sweet? And wonder it means? Oftentimes it's pointing to the pleasant and overall general delight in the name of Jesus. W.C. Martin wrote it this way in his hymnal titled, The name of Jesus is so Sweet:  The name of Jesus is so sweet, I love its music to repeat; It makes my joys full and complete,   The precious name of Jesus. Jesus! oh, how sweet the name, Jesus! every day the same; Jesus! let all saints proclaim     It's worthy praise forever. The sweet name of Jesus is worthy of praise forever! The word sweet carries another meaning though. It's pleasantries can also be attributed to foods, namely cakes! And if you want good cake that's also nice to look at, then look no further than Keisha Cakes. Joining us on today's episode to talk about Jesus and his hand in her business and life in general is Christian woman business owner Keisha Gaines. Keisha shares with us her go to scripture for encouragement in her endeavors, why prayer is important as a Christian business owner and advice for dealing gracefully with difficult customers that points to her relationship with Jesus.  Keisha Cakes is a home-based business located in Boynton Beach, FL. Their mission is to put smiles on faces by creating quality cakes that taste yummy and are to the clients specifications or custom design.

Women are resilient, strong and capable of so much. We run businesses, keep our homes in order, and do what we can to make the best out of every moment. Thankfully, when we want to celebrate moments we can call on people like Michelle Olmann of Hello Moments - an events planning company. Michelle loves Jesus, her husband Josh and her vibrant 2 year old son Mahershala (aka Hershey Kisses). When she's not creating memorable events for Hello Moments, Michelle works as the program coordinator for Gospel Fellowship Church in Boynton Beach and the office coordinator for CoWork Boynton.  In today's episode, Michelle shares with us how her Creator (God) created her to create and how she uses creation to create perfect moments for her clients. What I love about this conversation with Michelle is how she points it all back to Jesus, how far He's brought her and His affirmation of her. Check out today's episode and allow her story to encourage you in whatever season or endeavor you find yourself in or pursuing.  Be sure to be in the know with all things Hello Moments on the web and socials.

09| Jesus Affirms Women
Happy Women's History Month! The fact that it is already March is beyond me. Seriously, how sway?  Nevertheless, time is moving and let's just thank God that we're still here because of His grace. There are many folks who cannot say the same. As we quickly approach the 1 year mark in which the very deadly, very present COVID-19 virus gripped our nation - let's take some time to pray for those of us who are grieving the loss of loved ones. The bible instructs us in Romans 12:15 to mourn with those who mourn.  March is also when we celebrate women and their history. But I'd first like to celebrate God and his creation of women. Jesus affirms us in our womanhood and there are many biblical references that point us to that affirmation.  In today's episode, we take a look at different scriptures that shows His affirming love for us and a couple of examples of His physical and supernatural presence that is with us and will find us wherever we are.  Follow Jesus Affirms Me on IG @jesusaffirmsme

Happy Valentine's Day! Today I have the privilege of talking with some dear friends of mine about God's faithfulness in helping them to abstain from sex until they married each other & His handiwork in bringing them together.

04| Perfect Love
John 3:16 tells us that “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” That's that Agape Love!  This episode celebrates God's perfect love towards us and talks about how we can mimic that love by loving Him and loving others.  The quote that read is by Jack Zavada, "What Is Agape Love in the Bible?". I'm pretty sure I said "Zack Zavada" in the episode.  Be sure to subscribe, rate the show and follow on IG @jesusaffirmsme
