It’s a baby…..

I met Kunbi (not her real name) in 2013. I was employed at Pastor Bimbo Odukoya Foundation at the time and she had called in because she needed some encouragment; at that time, she had been married for three years and was yet to have a child. We spoke and prayed together over the phone... Continue Reading →

Comfort…… Custom Made!

Some weeks ago, I was really upset with God. For four days, I was sad, disappointed and angry all at the same time because I felt He was taking too long to answer some prayers. I can’t remember what set me off but it was like all hope was lost and I spent those days... Continue Reading →

My Brother & Sister’s Keeper.

Today, just as in Bible times, Christians in some countries around the world continue to pay a heavy price for their faith. Beatings, torture, imprisonment, rape, displacement from their homes and lands and even death are some of the things they experience on an almost daily basis just because they identify as being Christians. These... Continue Reading →

It Is A Fight

I’m a member of a Facebook group where Nigerian ladies are encouraged to share their experiences and give/receive non-judgmental support; I have read many inspirational stories as well as some horrific stories on domestic violence (DV) there. I see you sister. I celebrate all the ladies who share their stories about surviving DV however, I... Continue Reading →

A few of my favourite things

Mind your apostrophe

Our society expects women to marry in their twenties and latest, by their early thirties; anything beyond that leaves family, friends and even strangers mystified. A single matured woman in her mid-thirties to early-forties, becomes a recipient of all sorts of advice, prophesies, concoctions and varying degrees of pitying looks. In her mid to late...

God, Name Your Price!!!

Sometime ago, I met a lady who was quite bitter at a singles’ ministry that we both support. She had been a financial partner of the ministry for many years and according to her, it was to ensure that she would have a good marriage but three years after her wedding, she was headed towards...

The Night Mercy Found Me

When someone strikes me on the cheek, my natural instinct is rarely to turn the other cheek, I would rather hit back and twice as hard if possible (remember, I am still God’s Work-In-Progress). So, when an on-again, off-again friend (let’s call him Greg) went to town, supplying fodder for gossip, I wanted to strike... Continue Reading →
