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 […]

Limit or Push?

Teaching children a positive (or negative) trait or habit is not a one-time affair I have realized. We have to keep at it till it becomes part of them. Then keep at it for jara sake. I have been pushing my children not to give up but still hear things like: “I cannot do it” when faced with a new task. So, as I am not going anywhere anytime soon, I have decided to oblige by pushing. Last week I told Tori to pull off Samuel’s shirt. She looked at him and then at me and said. “Mummy, I cannot […]

The Golden Son

Imagine you have a grown child. He comes home one day, tells you about his friend. Who is stranded, and he wants the person to come stay in the house. You allow the person in, not minding the type of person the friend is because that is your son. You will do anything for him. Besides you have everything available for you. So it’s not as if the person’s coming will put a strain on your finances or anything of sort. You saying yes, is not because of the friend but because of your son and the love you have […]

Passenger or Controller?

Photo credit: Kstonecc.org Last week, I took a bike. At the T-junction was a traffic controller. He gave my lane go ahead, while we were crossing I looked to my left. A truck was hurtling down at a high-speed and I got scared. I hope this driver can see the traffic controller’s hand signaling he stops. I thought worriedly. The car screeched to a halt before he came to the junction. I breathed a sigh of relief as we rode away. The raised hand was the only thing the traffic controller did. He did not leave his position because he […]

Goal Settings

I am part of an online prayer group at kstonecc.org. On Thursday, during one of the meetings, the organizers asked us to bring our 2018 goals to pray on them. I was like whaaa…!? This is only November. I use to write goals but I stopped somewhere but I did not see any difference. They always went unfulfilled and I stopped. I joined the New Year resolution crowd. It never passed the second week before I forgot I had a resolution to begin with. Now I am asked for my goals two months before the end of the year. Then […]

mutual downturn or investment?

I heard someone talking about how he was financially buoyant. But he lost his job and things took a turn for the worse. Without blinking twice I can count different people who have had a downturn in their finance. Myself included. There are many reasons. But the common thread that runs through most of the stories is lack of proper handling. No proper investment, the mindset that the money will keep coming. You can add a couple you know. The storyteller regaled us of his philanthropic and flamboyant lifestyle. I asked, what did you learn in all this? He looked […]

The Revolution Has Begun!!!

I did a post recently on my upcoming book launch. Also how we should train our children to use their faith and experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. The responses I got from all the places I shared that post amazed me. I realized parents are not relaxing. I heard different stories of children who walk by faith and who walk and hear from the Holy Spirit. It was encouraging. There are bad news everywhere, making it seem as if the battle is being lost. But we are winning people, we are not there yet but we are on […]

Bottom Bucket or Filling Up?

  Today I heard an interesting perspective. My colleague said whenever his friends move a level higher than him. anything better than his present state, he withdraws from them. Either the friendship ends or he keeps them at arm’s length. That sounded weird to me. I asked him why that was. he said so it will not seem he is begging or intend to beg them for money and some other flimsy excuses.   I told him that is recipe for backwardness and poverty. Explaining with this analogy.When the water in a bucket is low, it will remain at that […]

helping others help me

Writing a book has always been on my mind but in the line of novels for adult. I have two unpublished manuscript to that effect.   I started toying with children storybooks when my aunt, who is a Reverend sister took charge of a school. She was complaining about the students, so I thought of writing stories for them. Since words are powerful tool in correction. My idea was, she makes them read by telling them to bring back a report on the stories. what they thought of the story. what they would have done if they are the characters […]

Flaws, stunted growth and Corrections

I went to a friend’s house and she sent her help on an errand. Typical me said won’t you tell her how you want it?” “No.” she replied. “Let me see what she comes up with then I can give her corrections. If I keep telling her how I want it, she will start waiting for me to tell her before she takes action. She will not be confident in her ability or creative.” Then, I saw a post on LinkedIn that said: Dear Micro-Managers, There is a problem. The problem is you. Not your employee. If the employee is […]
