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...

A GOOD MARRIAGE IS NOT BUILT ON AUTOPILOT

You think that once you’ve been married for a couple of years, you’re already used to how marriage works and the remaining years can be going on autopilot. A big NO! Good marriages are not built by operating on autopilot. No matter how long you’ve plied the route of marriage and the terrains you’ve covered,...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || MAKE THEM YOUR PRIORITY BECAUSE THEY ARE

This is the last post in this series, and I’m excited for how far we have come! All the glory to God. In the order of things, your children come next after your wife. You should know that God comes first. READ THIS: GOD FIRST. YOUR SPOUSE SECOND. YOUR CHILDREN NEXT. OTHERS LAST. There are...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PROVIDER

The first thing that comes to mind when we hear that the man is the provider of the home is that he is the one who shoulders the responsibility of being the breadwinner and bringing home the bacon. But he is more than that. He is more than what society expects of him. There is...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || RAISING KINGDOM GENERALS

For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him (Genesis 18:19). In one of my videos, I spoke about the place...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || DAD’S ROLE IN INSTILLING DISCIPLINE

I think that in most cases, the aspect of child discipline is left to the father and I guess that is why you here statements like “wait till your father comes and I will report you to him.” This statement itself is another issue to be tackled because it gives the child a negative impression...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || BEING A PRESENT DAD

“Childcare isn’t a 50-50 split. It’s a relationship that requires 100% from both of you because your child needs 100% of you. Your kid doesn’t need half a dad and half a mom. He or she needs two parents who are fully devoted to raising him the best they possibly can.”—Rebecca Lindenbach. If you’ve read...

FATHERHOOD SERIES || YOU’RE A DAD NOT A BABYSITTER

Have you heard statements like “her husband is babysitting the children” or have you heard when a man says he won’t be able to hang-out with his guys because his wife is not around and he needs to babysit? Well, I have heard and I am only left to wonder. Do you know who a...

LETTING YOUR CHILD KNOW THEY ARE ADOPTED

This is the last post in the adoption series and I am so grateful for the past one month writing about adoption. The posts so far are not in any way exhaustive on the issue of adoption, but you can start from here, here, here and here. This is one very important issue on the...

CONSIDERING ADOPTION? LET’S LOOK AT THE LAW

Why should we be considering the legal aspect of discussion? What business has that got to do with a child whom you have chosen to be a part of your family forever? It’s important I write on this aspect because there’s need for orientation to make people understand the legal effect of adoption. I was...

FAMILY AND FRIENDS, HOLD YOUR PEACE

“A butterfly that thinks itself a bird.” While that idiom quoted above may not make complete sense to you when you check the meaning of the idiom and put side by side with the subject of adoption, it is pregnant with meaning. I mentioned in an earlier post that my first interaction with the subject...
