The afternoon was cold and windy. The rains poured heavily outside, the streets were deserted from the fierceness of it. It was as though the world was aware that the heavens were falling. The weather told the story of what was happening in Mr. Adeniji’s house. Though midday, it was drearily dark and desolate, as though the masquerades of the spirits of the dead have indeed come to haunt the so-called notable families. The clouds were dark; the ground was pulsating from the thundering rain with fearful thunder claps, and lightning crowning the air with tension. … More Story telling: Series 1
It’s not only sad but it is heart-piercing when I read different relationship issues, marriage issues on social media and you find more women than men seeking advice, ranting and begging for solutions on how to get it together again, with or without their spouses.
A pastor once prayed for the happiness of a troubled couple. He says whether it be together or in separation, happiness and peace of mind is the most important thing. Now this is a contradictory prayer you’ll often hear from pastors or Christians. As much as we want to play holy and be without blame, in most cases, we often neglect the truth of the issue to address it accordingly. No two marriages are the same, therefore, no one solution will apply to both. If only the church will be as realistic as the issues most marriages face, I believe there won’t be so much confused people on social media seeking advice from total strangers and hoping to get genuine answers. … More When does a marital issue become a public affair?

Ada is a sixteen year old enthusiast who wanted to be a soloist with one of the big Nigerian record labels.

Onome, though a year younger than Ada, had her unique talent too which often confused even her parents. Onome is a good actress. She often dramatized her way out of any unwanted situation she found herself and her parents couldn’t tell it was all an act for years.

This should be an interesting topic to deliberate upon and it is, especially in a world where women now strive to be equal achievers with men. However, as women, we must understand that whatever we consider as issues starts from the mind. There are issues all around us if we choose to see life from that perspective but I know definitely that a better outlook to life and dreams is perhaps to see every obstacle as a challenge. I remember always wishing for more challenging tasks in my jobs and I remember a colleague telling me to be careful what I wish for.

So, we’ve had our moment of breaking the ice and having that first unbelievable conversation, what next?
In some cases, our views of people from afar are most times contrary to who they really are. You can’t tell a nervous person, for instance, from afar until you’re close enough to something or an activity that brings out that trait in them. In some cases, it’s better to appreciate people from afar and eulogize their seemingly perfect persona that makes you want to be close to them. I say this because once we get to know people, with all their good sides and bad sides, their flaws and weakness, we tend to let those traits form some sort of diminishing returns on our relationship with that person. A friend said to me once that it takes a sincere person to know you for who you are, imperfections and all, and still love you unconditionally. … More Can someone tell me how to retain relationships? I seem to have lost all of mine.
My daughter asked, “Mummy, why did the people kill Jesus?”
I said to her the people killed Jesus Christ because that was the reason He came to the world – to die for the salvation of humanity. So I suppose the people didn’t know they were doing Him good when they put Him to death.
My son asked, “Why do they call it Good Friday?”
As opposed to the dramatic and painful death of Jesus Christ that good and kind hearted people might have considered a Bad Friday, Christians call it Good Friday because it was the day humanity was once again reconciled to Him in the way He meant for us as in the days of Adam and Eve. So if we really want to show appreciate and love to Jesus Christ for what He did for us, we should love and each other and reverence Him in return. … More It wasn’t the nail that pierced him: Isaiah 53:4-5

Be ready to let them go because the woman of your dreams is worth chasing more”. … More The woman of your dreams is worth chasing more

As Jesus Christ makes his triumphant entry into Jerusalem today, I bring my prayer request for the little girls.
I pray for the little girl child that she would hear and understand how God values and loves her. I pray that she would be accepted and treasured within her culture as someone who has been created in God’s image. I ask for her protection and loving care; that cultures will be transformed in view of the girl child through the knowledge of God’s word. Give her a sense of belonging, O Lord, that she would feel safe and accepted within the family and community. … More For the Girl Child, Dear Jesus …
