When life gets tough, we tend to take things too seriously. We get discouraged and bitter. We might even lose faith.
In this episode, we get a chance to speak with Mirthell Onyx. He has been an ordained minister and marriage and family therapist for over twenty years. Mirthell is also a dad who writes, directs, produces, and acts in his family’s viral YouTube channel. There they depict how they rose from “the struggle life” to “the Onyx life” as a self-made, millionaire family utilizing social media as their primary entertainment platform.
Also the host of The Onyx Life podcast, Mirthell seeks to inspire and educate families on how to simultaneously build happy homes and financial empires. Today he teaches us how to use the power of humor through hard times and keep the faith to get through anything.
What You’ll Learn
Mirthell said that laughter is medicine. He believed that their story is very impactful to feed the soul, make people laugh, and heal the heart. They are constantly telling stories and doing funny skits with life lessons.
He shared that his family puts a spin on their show through laughter that allows some of the things they go through as married couples, or as families. He added that it gives people hope after a storm.
Mirthell was an ordained minister for 17 years. HE started the Youtube Show to connect with people on a real down-to-earth level hoping to make a difference.
Mirthell shared that the current COVID situation made his family get closer to each other. He learned to value that special time with his family.
Mirthell discussed doing a lot of quarantine-type skits and entertainment to bring a little bit of light to the situation. They made a collaboration with Dr. Fauci to educate people on the newest things and to understand what is happening around them. The show talked about how to get to the heart of issues, understand them, laugh at them and move on.
For Mirthell, the greatest spirituality is love. The spiritual ground and the common denomination is loving one another that you can all work on.
He added that we’re on the same spiritual path and how powerful and pure love is. There’s power in our story, and in who we are. Despite what we believe, there is a spirituality in us.
Faith Approach on Your Children
There is something natural and passionate inside of the children that need to come out. Mirthell believes that parents ought to be the guide and children are the experts. Life is going to tell them exactly who they are.
Mirthell said that you should understand the power of who you are, how you were made. Allow yourself to draw that positive energy to you because you’re important.
Mirthell believed in the power of words. They are just cautious to make sure that they’re always seeding into their audience’s life the importance of believing, and knowing that this will draw good things to you.
Lessons for Children
Mirthell taught his children that every people group has issues and challenges, to listen to other people’s stories, and to sympathize with others. He added the importance of being compassionate with one another.
When Mirthell and his family experienced having nothing, they prayed to God to help them. His wife searched about YouTube and started their show. After a month, they made money.
He realized that you don’t need to grieve over a pandemic, or systematic racism because there’s a far bigger plan than any of the distractions in life.
Acknowledging the Problem
Mirthell believed that ignoring problems can’t solve them. Part of the solution is acknowledging problems and finding a solution.
