On this episode of Da Fixx, we welcome Meelah Williams, a member of the legendary R&B group 702, who has recently become an author and is spreading awareness for autism.
The Power of Agreement Among Believers

On Thursdays, Dice and I love to delve into the Bible, and today’s topic is the power of agreement among believers. We encourage you to share this show with others, especially those who may be disagreeable. We believe that unity and agreement are powerful tools in our faith journey.
The Christian Hip Hop Scene

We recently heard from our friend, Mike Teezy, who was featured on the podcast “Know For Sure” with B Simone and Megan Brooks. Mike shared about his faith journey and the Christian hip hop scene. We were thrilled to hear the hosts of the podcast praising the talent of Christian rappers like Caleb Gordon and Asante. It’s always inspiring to see faith and talent merge in such a powerful way.
A Conversation with Meelah Williams

We’re thrilled to have Meelah Williams on our show. We discuss various topics, including her faith journey and the impact of her mother’s passing. Meelah shares her journey of grief and faith as a single mother. She expresses gratitude for what she has and acknowledges that her strong faith, instilled in her by her mother, has helped her navigate through the difficult process of grief.
Autism Awareness

Meelah opens up about her son’s diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and global developmental delay. She shares the challenges they face daily, which are often not visible in the pictures she shares on social media. This conversation is a reminder that everyone is fighting their own battles, and it’s important to be kind and understanding.
The Journey of 702

Meelah takes us back to the 90s, sharing her experiences with 702. From recording their first album while still in high school to going on tour with New Edition, Meelah reflects on the surreal and blessed journey they had. Despite the excitement, she acknowledges the challenges they faced and expresses gratitude for staying grounded and keeping her mind intact.
Advice for Young Artists

Meelah emphasizes the importance of humility for young artists embarking on a similar journey. She believes that humility is key in an industry that can chew you up and spit you out. She encourages artists to be proud of their talents but also remain open to learning and growth.
Personal Growth and Maturity

We discuss personal growth, maturity, and the dynamics within a group. Meelah reflects on her journey of becoming more vocal and assertive, contrasting her past role of being quiet and holding back. She credits her mother for being a role model in speaking up and passing the baton to her.
The Importance of Submission

We shift the conversation to the topic of agreeing with God and the importance of submission. We emphasize the need to have a ready yes for God’s plans and to let go of pride. Submission can be challenging but necessary for personal growth.
The Miracle of Human Existence

We highlight the concept of agreement by discussing the miracle of human existence and the natural order established by God. No life comes into existence without the involvement of a woman, highlighting the universal law and agreement set by God.
The Importance of Bearing Fruit

We discuss the importance of being in agreement with God and trusting in His promises. We emphasize that God’s word is the truth and that everything in the world is built on His principles. We highlight the significance of bearing fruit and how it is a reflection of one’s faith and obedience to God.
Personal Transformation

We discuss the importance of personal transformation and the need to change old habits. We use the example of our own weight loss journeys to illustrate the power of transformation and how it can inspire others.
The Concept of Agreement with God

We wrap up our discussion by emphasizing the concept of agreement with God. We express gratitude for the ways in which God has thoughtfully prepared things for humans, such as the packaging of an orange. We encourage listeners to align themselves with God and be in agreement with His plans and purposes.
We thank Meelah Williams for joining us and sharing her journey. We appreciate her openness and the insights she has provided. We hope that this conversation has been as enlightening for you as it has been for us. Until next time, keep the faith and stay blessed.
