New Beginings

After much procrastination and fear, I finally took the plunge and launched my blog. I have always loved writing but it felt so personal to put myself out there through my words. I know this is one of my talent (still trying to discover a new one). I always thought, maybe am too serious, maybe am not interesting enough but I think God saw differently because I have been having the leading to resume; as much as I try to ignore it and think up excuses. So this me leaping in head first and raising my glass of water to new […]

Hardened in the waiting

There are things I have been asking for and working towards. I look around and see the reply has not manifested the way I hoped for. I didn’t stop praying,working and hoping but I came across a verse Heb4:7 that says… Harden not your heart… While thinking about the word I realised my heart was hardened. My thinking has always been, only unbelievers have hard hearts. But we all run the risk of having a hard heart, even without knowing. Just like when you push someone too long and the person rebels. I am tired of praying, trying again, all […]

DIY… Doing it Yourself

My children were playing catch in the room with their teddy bear. While throwing the teddy bear it sailed right past their hands into the baby bed. It is high for them to get, the only way they could get it out was if they climbed or I helped.   Tori tried climbing but I sent her away from there. She tried sneaking there so she could climb again. I caught her and sent her away, thrice she went, and thrice I sent her back.   Finally, she abandoned the quest and looked for something else to play with. About […]

Why We Pray for Our Children’s Future Spouse

I remember writing a post on praying for my children’s spouses… Carlie Kecheval breaks down why it’s important I keep at it. You can stay there are still little, why the hurry? But when I remember their spouses are growing too with life throwing both the good, bad and ugly at them… You cannot afford not to. Let me and my husband in old age be thanking God for his bounty around us because all foundation has been solidified spiritually and physically. rather than because of our laxity today allow someone who didn’t do their homework well pour stones in my rice… Should the other […]

Break out and  Battles

I started experiencing break out (pimples) on my face pretty early (from age nine). I didn’t give it much thought then, but later I started using different products (soap, cleanser, cream, Apple Cider, E.t.c) to clear them off. There were times I used some products and nothing seems to be happening for a day or two. Only to wake up one day to see my entire face covered with more break out… The more I used the more it came till I thought, this is not working and abandoned the product. One day, someone said: “keep using it, it will […]

My Accurate Time Keeper

My husband is a stickler for keeping to time… When he says 2 o’clock, then two it is and so is my Dad. Myself on the other hand… I try but with children, I struggle. I have resolved that it is not possible for me to be on time as a mother, therefore I don’t even bother trying because the times I did, I was late. My husband helps out most times, and we are always on time for school, church and other events. but since he’s not around as much as before anymore… We became perpetual latecomers for everything. […]

There is a Role for Everyone

I have been privileged to find myself in different roles in life but the one I shied away from the most was leadership roles. I felt content as the creative director and to let others take the lead while I remain at the background. I was under the wrong impression that I do not have the qualities of a good leader –  i am not outspoken, friendly, I am too serious, and different excuses that I sold myself. Added to the fact that I am usually the shortest and youngest in whatever circle I found myself. I have had lots and lots […]

What’s new… I know and I have checked… Why try again?

While reading a post on Facebook about Robert Liardon’s book in which he told a story of two mountain climbers that died on mount everest while coming down (due to miscommunication, they didn’t know they had enough oxygen in their reserve, so they both died from lack of oxygen among other things… They died. The story reminded me of when I had to go for an important workshop(though not work related, it was important for everything I was doing). That morning it was raining cats and dogs and my car wiper was faulty. I considered abandoning the workshop but I […]

The Airtime That  Was Mine…

​I had earlier exhausted my mobile phone’s airtime, so my husband transferred another airtime credit directly to my phone (which he told me). But I forgot, I didn’t have any cash with me and I needed to make a call, I had to wait till I used the ATM machine. Still I could only get little airtime credit since I had a plan for the money I withdrew. My calls were short and there was no luxury of talking at my pace, because I felt I had to use the airtime I got sparingly. When I called my mom, she […]

War of the Mind… Being Realistic or Attacked?

I woke up to pray… during the praise and worship session thoughts kept distracting me. Am I enough? Is this enough? Am I doing it right? Can I ever be enough? These and more thoughts kept bombarding my mind and I was getting discouraged with each on. Looking back now I was under attack, but at that moment I felt I was just being honest with myself.   The thoughts overwhelmed me; I was still outwardly involved in the praise and worship. If you had seen me, you won’t know the war that was going on within. Tired, I cried […]

When Your Child Never Learns

 I have an adopted daughter, she’s eight and I find myself repeating myself over and over. She easily forgets things and I was getting frustrated of sounding like a broken record. At my wit’s end yesterday, I asked her: what do you want me to do, how can I reach you? She had no clue. So I turned to God: Father, I am tired. I don’t know what to do anymore and I am not making any headway with Favour… Please help me. I repeated the same prayer this morning because I was beginning to feel like a failure. While […]
