Lurking deep within your heart…

Listening to some topics, it’s very easy to switch off because in our minds, we are like “tell them, it’s true.people need to stop doing that.” We rarely hear things for ourselves, rather we are always thinking of people who need to hear it. Whenever I hear people talking about forgiveness, as far as I am concerned, I have no issue with that, so I press ignore… Yeah right, perfect Ufedo. Anyways, while reading a story two nights ago, the end spoke on forgiveness, so I skipped it as usual, not for me… next I slept off then I had […]

Thanksgiving Classic: “Thankful For The Thorns”

Sandra felt as low as the heels of her Birkenstocks when she pulled open the florist shop door, against a November gust of wind. Her life had been as sweet as a spring breeze and then, in the fourth month of her second pregnancy, a “minor” automobile accident stole her joy. This was Thanksgiving week and the time she should have delivered their infant son. She grieved over their loss. Troubles had multiplied. Her husband’s company “threatened” to transfer his job to a new location.Her sister had called to say that she could not come for her long awaited holiday visit. […]

Barren to Beautiful…

There are different types of barrenness… Of the womb (the most popular one) but how about barreness of relationship, finanances,spirituality, health,career,intellect E.t.c? No one is worse than the other… It’s all barrenness and a need for positive answers and results. When I came across Rebekah’s post… I could so relate to the crying to God, asking when the story will change… If like me you have ever cried(tears and snot dripping) secretly to God asking, “when God when!!? Then read this post for you are not alone… You Are Chosen, Not Forsaken by Rebekah   The candle flickered in the dark as […]

Breathe of Fresh Air For Introverts

I saw this post written by Subomi Plumptre. For all the introverts like me, Read this breathe of fresh air… “INTROVERTED NOT SHY (Part 1): I think it’s important to note that you can be deeply introverted like me, without being shy or self-deprecating. A long time ago I realised that I would be poor and led by fools, if I continued to be shy.  I needed to speak up about my ideas and ideology. I needed to be bold about my contributions and talents, before other people’s mediocrity killed me.  I decided my route to leadership and prosperity would […]

Bless The Lord, Oh my Soul… 

I was to travel for a meeting, by my calculations, I should be there by 8:30(if I was too late) but I found myself just leaving the park by 8:30… Ha! Calls kept coming in, where are you? Are you almost there? I had to switch off my phone because I was becoming tensed. By 10am, I was still on my way for an 8:30 meeting. So I prayed; “God please delay the meeting till I get there in Jesus name. Long story short, the meeting started about an hour after I got there. Call it coincidence but I see […]

The Prayer Table

While I was single, I remember reading a book (I can’t recall the name/author). Like I usually do, whenever something strikes me in a book I write it in my journal. I go through it again later. So I can easily go back and refresh my memory. Years later I was going through my journals and I came across what I had noted years earlier. The woman said she has a prayer timetable for the week, which helps keep her prayer life organized. Then I didn’t have much worries or anything I felt was necessary to pray for, so I […]

Partner… the easier way to more creative vibe

When we think of ideas and businesses most times, we think of what we can do, how we can start… how we can hoard all the ideas, so people do not steal it.   We forget two head is better than one… one chase a thousand, two ten thousand   Sometimes, we cannot do everything ourselves, For instance, you may have an idea. but it will require you learning how to make the thing but you have zero interest in learning it.   I have different designs for children clothe in my notebook. but I will rather not learn how […]

my pain and environment are pointers

My Pain and Environment are Pointers

I started asking questions, I got the idea for my blog Memoirs of a young wife and mother (memoirsofayoungwifeandmother.com) there, I poured things, as I learnt I wrote, from there the idea for my children storybook came. The original youthful dreams and plans did not change but it evolved. I met and interviewed each person, it was like I was receiving the gift of me back piece by piece. I saw Ufedo again, the one who had laid forgotten while I was being realistic. The dream came back, those innocent, naïve dreams of before, they were not totally useless because […]

something called essence... remember it?

Something Called Essence…Remember It?

A friend sent me a message recently, in her words she said “I am craftless, help me.” I share this because it was a very ironic statement. While we were in school, she was the go to person for everything. From electronics repair, to phones, clothes e.t.c. whatever you want mended or repaired, she will figure it out; with no formal training whatsoever.   She was bursting with creativity and I wished I could do half of the things she did. She topped that up with a formal training in fashion design.   She has been busy with marriage and […]

wife... where are you in the equation?

Wife… Where are you in the equation?

Last quarter of 2017 I noticed I was feeling restless, not satisfied with myself. Like something was missing, what could be that you may ask, well that was the question I kept asking myself too. I am married, have a job, with children… so what could be the matter? That should be okay right? I got irritated easily at myself and everyone and I didn’t know what was missing. Nobody could understand even when I explained.   I started asking God questions, what is wrong God, why am I feeling this way? I read different books.   On social media, […]
