In this episode, I’m joined by Mawlana Baig and Pastor Mike to discuss the spiritual ups and downs.

Pastor Mike, for over 15 years, has been an executive marketing director and financial services broker, specializing in retirement, savings, and life insurance. He’s married to a beautiful wife, Helena and together, they are proud parents of three wonderful boys. Pastor Mike has spent the last thirty years serving as a youth pastor and now senior pastor.

Mawlana is the host of divine allegiance, a daily show offering a blend of education, learning, and compelling conversation to help connect faith to life.
