DID GOD REALLY SPEAK TO YOU?

Recently, Lawrence Oyor came out on facebook to declare that he was no longer single and that all the sisters already carrying divine leading in their hearts for him should look elsewhere. ‘This boy is not single!!’ Lawrence announced. You’d be surprised that some sisters will still not give up. It’s then you’ll start hearing words like ‘I heard God!’ ‘I’m very sure of what God said to me.’...

TO THE SINGLE LADY BATTLING SOCIETAL PRESSURE

If you are in this part of the world and you are of marriageable age, you must certainly have encountered people who have asked you questions like, ‘How far? When are you getting married? When are we coming to eat rice? Time is going? What is happening nah?’ These questions come in all sorts.

MY CÔTE D’IVOIRE EXPERIENCE : WHAT I LEARNT FROM MY HOST MOTHER

After staying at home for close to a year without having a job, I got the gist that there was an internship opportunity in an exchange program somewhere in Cote I’voire. The fact that I would finally wake up in the morning and dressed up for work thrilled and excited me. You tell your friend, ‘Can I call you back when I return from work.’ or ‘sorry I couldn’t respond to...

DEAR GODLY WOMAN: YOU ARE MADE FOR MORE

Some weeks ago, I was invited to minister to some ladies on the theme. ‘Made for more.’ We had an interesting time drawing great lessons from the life of Deborah. Can I share with you some of the lessons that stuck with me as I read Judges 4 and 5? I hope through this, God will stir in your heart a longing to see yourself just as he sees you. 1. In the plan of God for a woman, there...

SECRETS OF AN IRRESISTIBLE WOMAN BY MITCHELLE McKINNEY HAMMOND

The first time I stumbled on any of Mitchelle’s book was some 10 years ago. At that time, I had no interest whatsoever in Christian Literature or relationship books and so I dropped it almost at the same time as I picked it. Fast forward to many years later, I was battling with an emotional issue when out of the blues, she suddenly flashed across my mind. What was it about this woman that...

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE PROVERBS 31 WOMAN: WHAT MAKES A WOMAN ATTRACTIVE?

This is what many people think. An attractive woman a.k.a a Proverbs 31 woman, is flawless. So when a woman held in high regards does something wrong, you immediately hear stuff like, ‘How can she do that?’  or ‘I can’t marry a woman like this.’ You see, my post today is not tailored towards disabusing the minds of the society neither do I seek to correct their many...

5 PRACTICAL STEPS TO BECOME A WOMAN OF THE WORD

Recently, I read an article by Jerry Jenkins( author of Left Behind) where he wrote in details his encounters with Billy Graham. The part that struck me was the interview Jerry Jenkins had with this great man of God. He asked the Evangelist how he maintained his spiritual discipline. Billy Graham answered by reminding him of the scripture that says we should pray without ceasing. Jerry Jenkins...

MY NAME IS SARAH AND I WILL FOLLOW MY DREAMS

I was the girl who would graduate with a first class from the University of Lagos. I was that young beautiful lady who would work with an NGO that fiercely sought justice for victims of domestic abuse. Those were my dreams and my aspirations from the day I clocked 14. But then, 14 years later, I would find myself paying regular visits to Doctor Fred Popoola. “So when you get depressed, how do you...

I AM A WOMAN AND I WILL NOT APOLOGISE FOR IT

The first time I participated in an intensive outlook on womanhood at the American Corner, Cote Ivoire, a startling awareness of my essence descended on my cultured naivety. It was the month of March, the 8th, a day dedicated to celebrate women all over the world and in my reminiscence, I could perceive the attainable height opened to every girl, lady, woman in her locality and city. In light of...
