S@5: Remembering Mandisa…

Remembering Mandisa.  A replay of our 2022 interview with singer/songwriter Mandisa. Mandisa shared with Verne and Wally (WBFJ Morning Show) about her struggles with depression and anxiety through her memoir, ‘Out of the Dark – My Journey Through The Shadows To Find God’s Joy’.  mandisaofficial.com/home/

Clinging to the hope of Psalm 40, Mandisa writes…
“My favorite part of this passage of Scripture is in verse 3: ‘Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord,’” she explains, referencing Psalm 40. “That’s what I see this book being about—me telling how God lifted me out of the pit, and letting people know He did it for me; He can do it for you.”

Sadly, this was our final chat with Mandisa. She passed away at her home in Nashville on April 18. She was just 47.

 Navigating tragedy.
Wrestling doubt.
And finding hope in Jesus.
