Faith And Fire

Jessica Baker

If you've ever looked at the world around you and struggled to reconcile reality with your faith... you're my kind of people. Welcome to the Faith and Fire community. My name is Lady J and I'm on a journey to explore the world around me and understand how it impacts my faith... from music and dating to business and politics. Each week I will bring on guests to have an authentic conversation on how these everyday topics impact our faith journey and what it means. So whether you regularly attend church, never go or never want to... join us each week as we deep dive into intriguing questions and explore perspectives on topics that impact our everyday lives. We're starting a conversation. Join us and follow along on Apple podcasts, Spotify, or wherever else you listen to podcasts. read less

Faith and Secular Music: Guarding your spirit in the world of secular music
Is the music industry demonic and is secular music even okay to listen to as a person of faith? We explore these questions and so much more as I sit down with two of my faith-filled friends to chat about secular music. Join us as we start out going down a TikTok rabbit hole about satanism in the music industry, then dive into how we protect our ear gates while feeding our souls. We wrap up the discussion diving into our pasts. From the music of our childhood to college choices, this is a fun conversation with many twists and turns. Join the conversation!

She feverishly prayed over her and her sisters to break generational curses. God and Jesus are her BFF’s. She is weak without them and give them all the glory. She considers herself grateful for the discernment that she receives from the Holy Spirit! IG: iamb1984   Discover the videos that took us down a TikTok rabbit hole with this curated playlist.

Breaking the Silence: Addressing The Impacts of Mental Health on Our Community
In this poignant episode, we dive into a topic that often remains veiled in silence but is undeniably present in the fabric of our lives – the impact of mental health struggles on our faith, loved ones, and communities. I sit down with three incredible individuals who graciously share their personal journeys, shedding light on the profound ways suicide has touched their lives. They open their hearts to reveal the struggles, the pain, but most importantly, the resilience that has emerged from their experiences. Throughout this episode, our guests implore us to break the silence. The importance of fostering an open dialogue surrounding mental health and suicide is too profound to ignore. By sharing their stories, they encourage others to speak up, listen, and be heard.   Meet our guests:  Alicia - A strong and faithful woman who lost her husband to suicide 7 years ago. Lauren - A wife and mother of three that lost her father at age 13 to suicide. Mike - A youth counselor who lost a close friend at age 15 to suicide. Michael is a practicing  therapist at The Empowerment Group LLC. michael@bestempowermentgroup.com   Join the conversation!
