For one, the bride is not even British and every other thing that came along with that seemed to be overlooked and embraced. Perhaps, someone fought or had to fight the good fight of faith to have something so different be so gloriously celebrated.
In blessed memory of Princess Diana, she was her own strong personality the Monarchy had to crack. Bringing her passion for people and fashion into an environment with high walls of protocol and panache, she broke free for the likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Merkle to have a smooth transition to being their own persons while adopting the royal styles. … More The Royal Wedding: Groundbreaking History
A famous Nigeria actress said, “The best gift you can give your child is the Word of God”. God did indeed give you these children for this time. You need to help them discover the secret in the Word of God that will take them to wonderful places, even beyond this world. Daily instruction in God’s Word is key in raising children in this age. The Word is very clear on men and women, marriage, sexual perversion, and right and wrong. There are so many teachings and personal opinions on the internet which can, quite frankly, get your mind twisted if you’re not even grounded in a Truth. If for the only reason that the Bible is a book of morals and ideals, then there is no harm in obeying to the letter, without additions or subtractions. It’s very clear on the hardening of hearts to the truth, and on fools being led astray. Read it with and to your children daily. Memorize passages. Explain how they relate to our practical times. … More Raising kids in a perverse generation
Instead of restricting the talents and silencing the opinions of fresh minds, instead of overprotecting and guiding on same paths that go nowhere, we can maybe let the young ones live a little, make their own mistakes and trust that they will learn better from their own mistakes. All minds are not equal, one that is academically inclined might not be good with anything else and the other who is inclined in other gifted areas may not be academically. Learn to observe, listen and nurture the seed that is deposited for the benefit of the community in your child. … More Nigeria @ 57: Empowerment & Succession

How should we respond when we are upset with one thing or the other in the church? What do we tell our kids when they see others criticizing their church on social media, for instance? What do we say when people in the community ask, “What’s going on at your church?” Even I want to ask these questions sometimes but I fear upsetting the course of the church. … More Fighting through church controversies
I stand against domestic violence, especially towards helpless women. No matter the situation, no matter how aggravated the situation, no matter the ego, no matter the temptation, abusing your wife doesn’t make a man any better than he is. In truth, when you look back at the situation, it just makes you full of regret and shame, almost like you didn’t recognize the monster you became. It’s better to remove yourself from all appearances of domestic violence than fall prey and this goes for both men and women and in this case, women are more like to fall victim.

Some people claim that irreconcilable differences is a no-fault grounds for divorce, which means neither party committed any sort of extenuating act, such as adultery, abandonment or extreme cruelty. In other words, no-fault divorce is just like it sounds – no single party is at fault for the break of the marriage. Even Wikipedia states that ‘in the United States, this is one of several possible grounds’. Once again I wonder, when did this become a confident excuse for divorce in Nigeria? … More Citing irreconcilable differences
If the society is really concerned about the future and raising confident world leaders then we should learn to love and accept one another regardless of the past. Who doesn’t have a past anyway?

Just as much as the human emotion is a radical one, we can’t always be in control of our emotions except if we’ve perfectly mastered emotional intelligence. Even at that, when we realize the emotion we’re feeling at any particular time and it’s one we do not appreciate, there is tendency to remove ourselves from such a situation just so we are not affected by the unappreciated situation or have some sort of sanity for our peace of mind or balancing of lifestyle as it were. Either way, I do not understand how cheating in a relationship solves any form of marital issue. It’s like drinking alcohol just to ease the mind, if you’re taking it for that purpose. Once the effect of it wears thin, you’re back faced with the reality of your life. The alcohol won’t take your problems away. And even if cheating on your spouse seem like a yoga balancing act, it won’t be forever. Even worse, you’ll be left picking up pieces of the life you neglected as a result of lies and complications. … More Has cheating become the solution to marital issues?
Ada is a sixteen year old enthusiast who wanted to be a soloist with one of the big Nigerian record labels. She often gathered the other children together and make everyone join in on her singing competitions, knowing full well that none of the other children had the kind of sensational talents that she had. 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.
A conman had approached them individually, having watched them from afar for months. Different in talent they may be but they both had the same trait which is common to his other victims – desperate for fame. … More Protect me passionately
