Interested in having Mel guest on your podcast? There's no one who has not been impacted by the events we find ourselves living in! Anxiety, depression, fear of the future, and feelings of hopelessness are common, even in the church. Grief, loss, crisis, and trauma are all real after-effects of the pandemic and the uncertainty we now live in.  Children are struggling and parents are struggling to parent while battling their own challenges.


Giving doable strategies is Mel's specialty! Topics can be tailored to your theme.
