Prayer Edition | Day 15 | Stevie Wonder
“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit” says the Lord. - Zechariah 4:6 Many of you are lacking strength right now. Many of you are in a place of weariness and feeling battered by the battle, but don’t give up!  We’re coming on today’s walk to remind you of where your power and strength come from. It’s time to worship. It’s time to laugh. It’s to celebrate that we have made it through the week! It’s time to have your vision renewed and the weariness break off. You are walking into a new season of your life. Trust that feeling and keep moving.   *Spiritual Warrior of the Day:* Turn on your favorite Stevie Wonder song because it’s time to shift the atmosphere! This man has given us a lifetime of hits. He’s created a soundtrack to the Black experience that is so lush and full of funk and dripping with pride that it will never go out of style. And he did it all while proving to us that vision – the ability to really see – comes from God. And, boy does Stevie really see us. His music is a reflection of our beauty and pain, pushing us to believe in new possibilities. His songs are a conduit for joy, healing, and love. Just playing one of his songs can transform the energy of any person, room, or experience. That’s how much of a spiritual warrior Stevie is. On today’s walk, we will dive into the magical story of his life and the making of his masterpieces. We will learn how God talked to him and guided him each step of the way. We will learn how he was willing to walk away from it all, at the height of his career, to serve the higher calling that God placed in him. And we walk down memory lane, remembering all the ways in which Stevie’s music has personally influenced our lives. This is going to a be pavement party like no other. Put your good headphones on. Turn the volume all the way up. It’s going to the livest walk and talk, yet! Join GirlTrek’s Black History Bootcamp - The Prayer Edition at blackhistorybootcamp.com to receive specially curated emails with prayers, survival tips, speeches + dedicated songs to listen to for each episode. Together we will discover the stories of 21 spiritual warriors. Disclaimer: We do not own the rights to the music played during this broadcast.

Phoebe, Mai Huynh, & Eric Nam Go On K-Pop Adventure
Hey y'all! Can you believe I'm doing back to back supersized episodes? Well, honestly, I had no choice because there is soooooooo much to discuss when it comes to K-pop that I already want to do another episode. But in the meantime, let's focus on today. After British Baekoff and I talk about his musical past in a scream metal band (lol, wut?), I'm talking to my first guest my friend/co-worker/life coach/part-time therapist/#1 BTS fan Mai Huynh. We not only discuss why K-pop has taken over the world but how it has transformed her life, but also K-pop music is encouraging its fans to be more socially and politically active. Next! I'm sitting down with bonafide star Eric Nam. He has been in the game a long time and is sharing his experiences as well how K-pop has changed since he's been performing. And, you already know we have some cute AF audience questions to answer, so listen now!.  Mai Huynh Details: Twitter/Instagram: @maisquared Food Instagram: @maisnacks Eric Nam Details: Twitter/Instagram: @ericnam Website: www.ericnam.com -- Black Owned Business: Souk and Sepia WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/31MO2QZ INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2Hu5uTH FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3kwDCw9 PINTEREST: https://bit.ly/2J2pM6U -- SUBSCRIBE to get the latest Black Frasier Episodes: YouTube: https://bit.ly/33yXkBX Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3a787Vd Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33FG1PA Google Podcasts: https://bit.ly/33B9Gt9 Stitcher: https://bit.ly/2F241SS iHeart: https://ihr.fm/3kkY8Ah Pandora: https://pdora.co/31z7Ru6 Deezer: https://bit.ly/3gFwpYN Connect with Phoebe Online at: Visit the Phoebe Robinson WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/3kxHrlo Like Phoebe Robinson FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3fCjnKg Follow @PhoebeRobinson on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/33DParN Follow Phoebe Robinson on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/3a5xVAT Follow Black Frasier on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/31pKiUC -- About Black Frasier: BLACK FRASIER. It is - SURPRISE! - an interview-advice hybrid show hosted by a black person (ahem, me: Pheebs!) who has never seen an episode of FRASIER despite having a white boyfriend. #WeAllContainMultitudes. Moving on. Since I’m known amongst friends to dole out solicited (and unsolicited) life advice, I wanna spend each week - with a celeb guest - helping y’all handle your probs. #OliviaPope #MoreLikeOliviaDope #MomJoke. ANYWAY, the world is a continuous dumpster fire and the goal of this poddie is to make you laugh, think, and feel hopeful for our future.
