Hey family! In this episode of Da Fixx, we had the pleasure of hosting an enlightening conversation with Spencer Kane. A multi-talented artist and member of the supergroup Anthem Lights, Spencer shared his journey of fame, faith, and dealing with anxiety. In our real talk segment, we discuss the prenup and marriage from a biblical perspective.
The Rise to Fame: Social Media and Talent
Spencer attributes his rise to fame to the power of social media, which he has effectively used as a marketing tool for his music. He recalled his early recognition of his singing talent, which eventually led him to pursue a career in music. Over the years, he has honed his skills and found his unique artistic style.
Personalizing Faith: A Journey of Self-Discovery
Spencer emphasized the importance of personalizing his relationship with God. He believes that simply following the faith handed down from his parents was not enough. He has actively sought to deepen his connection with God, finding solace and guidance in his faith during challenging times.
Dealing with Anxiety: The Importance of Self-Care
Spencer opened up about his struggles with anxiety and the importance of self-care. He credits therapy, life coaching, and good mentors for helping him navigate through challenging times. He also highlighted the value of open communication and community in maintaining balance in his life.
Balancing Act: Solo Career, Group Dynamics, and Marriage
When asked about balancing his solo career, being part of Anthem Lights, and his new marriage, Spencer admitted that he doesn’t handle it all perfectly. However, he expressed gratitude for the grace and understanding he receives from his wife and friends. He finds writing to-do lists helpful in staying focused and organized.
The Dynamics within Anthem Lights
Spencer discussed the dynamics within Anthem Lights, where each member has their own strengths and responsibilities. They work together as a team, with no selfishness or competition, and their goal is to support each other and keep moving forward. They are currently working on a CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) record, with one song already released called “God Gave Me Freedom.”
The Power of Music and Authenticity in Storytelling
Spencer believes that music is emotional and authentic, and it should be treated as a testimony. He emphasized the need for vulnerability in music and the freedom to talk about personal struggles and experiences. He also mentioned the pressure that worship and gospel artists face to maintain a certain image, even though they may be dealing with personal challenges behind the scenes.
A Biblical Perspective on Prenuptial Agreements
In our real talk segment, we introduced a biblical perspective on prenuptial agreements, emphasizing the importance of love and trust in a marriage. Do some people enter into prenuptial agreements out of lust or a desire for power and success, rather than genuine love for their partner?
Trusting God and Letting Go
We discussed the idea of trusting God and not losing faith if a marriage fails. We explored the idea that if someone is not meant to be their spouse, God will show them and guide them to someone better. We encourage a mentality of starting over and not holding onto things from past relationships.
