On Episode 061 of the Choose 2 Think Podcast, Janelle Banks and I chat about the loss of her con-joined twin* sons, Josiah and Josias in 2015. She shares her personal story of grief and loss and how she found joy through it all in Jesus Christ.
What gripped my heart during this interview was Janelle's awe-inspiring trust in God and her strong faith and acceptance of His ways, even when faced with losing her babies.
What are emotions? What causes them? What foods affect our thinking, emotions, and moods?
These are a few of the questions I address on this episode of the Choose 2 Think Podcast. If you listen til the end, you’ll hear a few of the participants share their takeaways from this information packed session*.
Discussing the sensitive topics of suicide, attempted suicide, and suicidal ideation* can be quite challenging because they are emotionally charged. Sometimes it's hard to find the words to express our thoughts and feelings about these issues.
Choose 2 Think Podcast guest Stephen Johnson, a licensed social worker who has been in practice for decades, reduces the charge on this issue by addressing it in a loving and God-honoring fashion.
During the interview, Stephen answers these two overarching questions:
1) Why might someone choose to take their own life?
2) What can the survivors (family members, friends, the community) do to deal with their grief and any guilt they may be feeling as a result of losing someone they know to suicide?
His answers may surprise you.
In today's Choose 2 Think Podcast episode, you'll hear snippets from the Fired Up Mind Challenge Session 2 "Detox" recorded live.

We can be heroes in our lives, everyone of us.
Ancestral traditions, mindsets, obstacles, struggles, suffering, transformation, and hope are just a few of the topics that Grace Julius and I chat about during Episode 057 of the Choose 2 Think Podcast.
Grace shares his personal testimony and journey of not only coming home to Christ but also of launching initiatives to change his village in the Mukono District of central Uganda. He is a young visionary, a hero in his own right, with an undying passion for God and love for people.
And how exactly does he demonstrate God's love?
