Out of the Dark with Mandisa & Laura Williams

Out of the Dark is a podcast about mental health in the body of Christ. As followers of Jesus, people are sometimes led to believe that if we struggle with anxiety, depression, addiction, identity, or the many other areas of our mental health that we are less of a Christian or are just not praying enough. As members of the body of Christ, Mandisa and Laura will tackle the idea that, while Jesus IS enough, a relationship with a counselor can help heal wounds that will enhance your relationship with Jesus. They will cover specific topics related to mental health and offer resources to listeners to enhance your journey of personal growth. We can't do it alone; we need to step out of the dark of shame and guilt and into the light of recovery and redemption.

New episodes air Wednesday. Make sure to subscribe so you never miss an opportunity to step Out of the Dark.

Thank you very much!

I am so grateful for this wonderful podcast! I struggle with depression and severe anxiety and just the sound of your calm and happy voices stabilizes me and helps me make the daily effort to be at least potentially productive;) Whenever I listen I'm always fully engaged, interested, and exited to be learning so much in such a pleasant way. My only complaint is that there aren't more...yet. I hope you'll pick it up again sometime-whenever you get the time....I've listened to each episode once, some of them twice, and I'll have to start on a third round soon. They only get better with age so I'm not worried, I just hope there'll be more to look forward to in the future someday. I think it's too important an endeavor to discontinue now. May God bless and reward you both for all the good you've done by taking the time to share the knowledge, empathy and experience He gave you. "Grant, Lord, for Thy Name's sake, to reward with eternal life all those who do us good. Amen."

A helpful relief!

I really like this podcast and look forward to having it resume. It helps me understand myself and others better and is a jewel in the land of a subject matter that often lacks God'sperspective and truth. Such a relief!
