When are you getting married?
In this episode of "The Courage to Identify" Podcast, I will be answering one of the most common questions that every person on the planet faces at some point: "When are you tying the knot?" Whether you are single, dating, engaged, or married, people always seem to be curious about your relationship status and when you plan to take the plunge. Women have changed from years and centuries ago thanks to technology, career access, evolution of culture, freedom of self, practicing human rights and much more. When women have changed, their responsibilities and priorities have changed, is it relevant to expect women to take this life decision lightly? Is it relevant to ask today's women to follow traditional societal expectations of marriage?

"I am God' mentality - Is it hurting or helping?
Women tend to over-extend themselves that they end up living another’s life or living for their children. They take on burdens that are not their own and forget to celebrate the small wins in life. Growing older, this leads to lack of self confidence, zero drive to achieve in life and resentment. In Episode 4 of “The Courage to Identify” Podcast, my guest Ektha Agarwal speaks about breaking the savior mentality that South Asian women learn. This is a generational habit that needs to be broken so women empower themselves to fully live in courage and empower their children to make healthy decisions for their life. Ektha Aggarwal is an experienced licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and Founder of the group practice Shakti Therapy and Healing Services. Shakti Th

What to do about the LGBT (Queer community)?
The reward to finding who you are and living your full self is freedom, but the consequence to making that decision to live in freedom is being isolated by those who don’t get your why. In this episode of "The Courage to Identify" Podcast we speak with April and Beecher, who promised to marry before God and family only to go through an intense roller coaster of identity issues.

Season Three Intro
A simple yes or no can change our life but these decisions come with a reward or consequence. We are happy when we get a reward. It’s a dopamine hit.

The Religious Stance on Abortion
On what would have been Roe v. Wade’s golden anniversary, the United States has entered a new era in which abortion is no longer a constitutional right. In June 2022, the Supreme Court ruling overturned a 50 year legislation to state that abortion is illegal. Today, almost 24 restrict access to abortion. Every choice has a consequence and though reproductive rights were used to correct people’s mistakes, the overturn of Roe v. Wade left women to suffer on the doctor’s table without no proper protocols in place. Research shows that women of color were the most affected as they lost the right to an abortion on basis of rape and incest. The stance toward pro-life or pro-choice is based on religion and personal values but is it worth celebrating political identity when a choice hurts the minority group of a society? My guest Pastor Kevin Wilson is the Digital/ Social Media Co-ordinator for Andrews University. As an ordained minister in the Seventh-Day Adventist Ch
