Do it Afraid Lesson… A success.

Last night after eating, I shared the cleaning up duties amongst my girls. Nuggie clears the plate while Tori cleans. For now Samuel’s duty is his own plate. To clean, Tori has to get the broom and dust pan. Note, there is no light, and the generator is acting up, we were using a rechargeable lantern. Tori: Mummy, I am scared, it’s dark. Nuggie: Mummy let me go with her. Me: No, Tori go with my phone for extra light. Tori: Crying, she went out and ran back. “I can’t find the broom.” Me: if you check properly, you will […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

different shades of children and parenting

Different Shades Of Children And Parenting

In the journey of parenting, Just when I think I have gotten a hang of it, series of new phases come up. The children are growing and they are beginning to think they are too smart for us. Nuggie came to meet me to help her tie her shoe lace. I told her to do it herself and she said: “if it were Daddy, he will tie it for me. I looked up from what I was doing. “Who am I? I asked. “Mummy” she replied, Then why do you want me to behave like daddy? She picked up her […]

What are my Children Learning?

I was doing assignment with my daughter and I came across a passage in her book and I had to really ask myself, what are they learning? The dialogue’s aim was to teach how to say thank you. it reads. Eze: Good morning Uncle Ben Uncle Ben: Eze how are you? Your bag looks heavy, come into the car let me drop you Eze: Thank you Then Eze enters the car. Immediately, I reminded my daughters do not enter anybody’s car without daddy or mummy. Do not follow anybody if mummy and daddy are not there or gives permission. What […]

building out of the box thinkers start with a question

Building Out Of The Box Thinkers Starts with A Question

I am learning a lot of things through my children, while I make mistakes as I go along. I am grateful for the wisdom and time for course correction.   One trait which I have noticed in myself and a lot of people is giving up in the face of seeming obstacle. It almost seems like a default of sort. except for the few who deliberately take steps to resist the comfort of not settling or giving up. It’s a fight we must fight daily with ourselves.   It’s tiring and exhausting but the rewards are endless. watching my children […]

Those are my Decisions! Toe the line!

My husband and I had this habit of dropping decisions on our children without prior notice. “This will happen today.” “You will do that today” e.t.c. They never handled it well. Tears and tantrums were usually the result. They are just being children we thought. We managed the situation as best as we could but I always wondered. Recently, I stumbled on a better way. A new session was about to begin in school, due to distance and not having a help. We decided to move them to a school closer to the house. It will not be out-of-the-way when […]

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 […]
