    First of all great picture selection! Idris Elba oh yeah. Ok enough of my lusting lol. The shortage of good men topic is one I used to find myself engaging in. I honestly used to believe all the good men were taken. The fact was I wasn’t a good woman so I didn’t attract what I desired.

    If you want the best you have to be the best. I’m not saying a person should only improve oneself to attract a mate. You have to do that for you. A good mate is an added bonus.

      LOL! You are so silly sis.

      You’re so right about us needing to be the best if we want to have the best. Plus, that is definitely something we should do for ourselves and not solely to attract a spouse.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts sis!

    Jay, thank you so much for
    all of your podcast 1st and foremost. God has been speaking to me through
    your work. Again, thank you for your obedience. You are truly a man
    of God! I am learning so much about relationships, myself but most
    importantly, Gods Will for my life. I now have a different perspective on
    “Singleness”. I was comfortable in my singleness (so I thought) then
    some things came up while listening to the different topics that apply to me currently.
    This topic has catapulted me to another dimension because up until
    listening, I believed “good men” existed just not for me. What
    I gleaned from this podcast is that I need to continue “living” and
    doing what the Holy Spirit leads, continue seeking His face and if my “good
    man” is in the making; Jesus will deliver him to me. You are a Gem!
    Keep up the good work and the same for all of your guests sharing their hopes,
    experiences, strengths and advice.

      Awww you are far too kind Josie. It brings me so much joy to know that you are enjoying the discussions. I pray that you continue to enjoy the upcoming content too.

      God is so awesome! I am glad that He is at work in your life. That is amazing!

      Yes! You cannot go wrong following the lead of the Holy Spirit. Continue to allow God to lead, guide and direct you.

      Thank you for your encouragement and continued support. God bless you!
