EP 12: Perseverance Through Trials with Moneek Odunze
Today's guest is the beautiful Moneek Odunze. She's a momma of two little boys and she and her husband shared their first kiss (to each other) on their wedding day!!
Moneek shares about spending 4 months in the neonatal ICU with her second son who was born at 24 weeks gestation. He was only 1lb, 6oz when he was born!
Moneek has also battled chronic illness and fibromyalgia for about 10 years and just in the last year has experienced tremendous healing. She also shares about the relational healing that's taken place over the last year with her mother and father who she rarely saw as a child.
I also shared with Moneek how her husband Ernest's blog post affected me in the conversation of racial reconciliation.

Most influential book she's ever read: "Parenting with Love and Logic has been super helpful in this season of life. Maybe not the most influential of my life but the most helpful right now." - Moneek
