Friend, are you low-key stressed without even clocking it? If that's the case, this episode opener will teach you how to be stretched while still coming into agreement with God.

Ladies, how y'all feel? Fellas, y'all alright? SJR says there's great power in emotional awareness, so W.E. begin this episode by dabbling with the feelings wheel. Followed by an intimate conversation with Trauma Therapist, Life Coach, Minister, and New York Times Bestselling Author of “The Garden Within”, Dr. Anita Phillips! In a moment of vulnerability, SJR asked what God is teaching Dr. Anita as it relates to power, and let's just say that Sis is standing on business by cultivating uncertainty into excitement.

But can you imagine holding a position of authority and being diminished because you’re a woman? While sharing how power shows up in her home life, Tamron spills tea on the greatest love story ever told! Trust, you’ll want to hear it.

Chhiiillleee, it’s been a very long week for SJR, and you’re finna find out why! Before starting this episode, W.E. ask that you proceed with caution. ‘Cause somebody proved themselves to be a sacrificial lamb in motherhood, but even more so on this here podcast. Tune in to hear how SJR was able to strike a balance, and release the fragrance of who Jesus is in the busyness of life. Now…the advice segment is where things went from 0 to 100 real quick!

on Kendrick Lamar ... if the lyrics include the N word it's fair game no matter your culture. Don't want it repeated then don't include it in lyrics. She should have been rescued; the concert goer said nothing wrong.
