Struggling With Singleness: A Conversation with Mandisa

In Dating, Podcast by Debra Fileta

Do you feel like you’re struggling with singleness? I know that the struggle can be heightened during this season of life, especially with all that’s going on in the nation in light of Covid 19. Social distancing, quarantine, sheltering in place can make you feel even more lonely and disconnected than ever before. 

But struggling with singleness does not make you strange, or crazy, or lacking in faith. It makes you human. 

I got a question from a listener asking for tips and advice on how to deal with loneliness and anxiety during this time, and I brought my good friend – the one and only Mandisa, to help me tackle this question!

Mandisa is a an incredible woman of God on the journey of singleness…and I know that having her help me address and answer this question will bless you beyond belief!
