A Single Woman’s Story :: A Discussion About Singleness, Mental Health, Celibacy, and Life with Mina Nyenke (pronounced N-Yen-Kay)
In Part 2 of this power packed interview, our host takes on the heavy topics of singleness, celibacy, mental health and what life looks like for a Christian single in today’s hyper sexual culture. Mina Says, created by Ms Mina Nyenke, is a new platform that’s been created to give Christian singles a voice and both our host and our guest charge straight forward into the elephants in the room. You can Listen to Part 1 HERE.
