BOOK RELEASE: A WITHERED FLOWER AND FOR MY MARRIAGE

The book, A Withered Flower that was first written in 2016 as a short story has now metamorphosed into a novella. I honestly did not envisage it to turn out how it turned out as the story decided to take wings and fly, and I was left to simply follow after it. There are people...

LIKE CHRIST LOVED (ebook)

Life throws at us a good deal of bricks to break us, but what we make of those bricks determines whether we build with it or we’re broken by it. Many people in the society are victims of domestic violence and their sour experience makes it difficult to either give or expect love. However, because...

LET’S TALK ABOUT ADOPTION

LOVE WITH YOUR WORDS

We are all aware of the power of the tongue: can build and destroy, can mar and make, can cause progress or hinderance, etc. If words can do these things depending on how we use them in our relationship with siblings, friends and acquaintances, how much more do you think it can do in a...

QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR SPOUSE

Scrolling through my Instagram newsfeed yesterday, I came across a post by Heather Lindsey where she shared that it isn’t about the game, the coffee, the cup of juice, but about the person you you did all those things with.

KNOW YOUR SPOUSE’S LOVE LANGUAGE

Hey, Kemi! What are you talking about? What’s has love language got to do with marriage again? Just too many terms on top of this marriage matter. Urgh! Wait, don’t tell me you’re hearing this for the first time. Oh no! Ok… the term love language can be ascribed to a famous author on marriage-...
