A JOINT EFFORT

Things have not been the same with the Johnsons since losing their first son to cultism. There had been a strain in the relationship between Jerry and his wife, Jane, as they traded blames for the sad occurrence. Jerry was a mechanical engineer and more often than not, he was not always around with his...

DELIVERING GOD TO YOUR CHILD

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he’ll not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6 I’ve come to observe that more often than not, children of pastors and church leaders turn out to be wayward and go contrary to what they’ve been taught. It’s so rampart nowadays that...

SEEING YOUR CHILD THROUGH FAILURE

I had just resumed for the new academic session to primary two, and I was asked to repeat primary one because I was terrible in reading and writing. Actually, it was my mom who instigated my having to repeat a class. My spirit was dampened, and I suffered self-esteem issues. However, my story did not...

PHYSICAL INTIMACY

Marriage is 100% physical just as it is 100% spiritual, and physical intimacy is an important aspect of marriage. Asides other very relevant reasons people get married, what else do people get married for? To be intimate, physically! If marriage is just for companionship, then there’s no need for marriage as platonic friendships would do....

EMOTIONAL INTIMACY

The silence that spoke in the house of the Bensons was one that was too loud to be ignored. It spoke of the hate, the intolerance, the communication gap, the bickering that has stealthily crept into their home. Things were not this way five years back. Surprise gifts, unexpected pecks, kitchen dance, roarsome laughter to...

SPIRITUAL INTIMACY

In the previous post, I introduced the three legs of intimacy here. I’d be painting a scenario, and we’ll see how the lack of spiritual intimacy deals a deadly blow to the home. During our courtship, my husband and I promised ourselves that we’ll build an altar of prayer and study of the word, and...

THE THREE LEGS OF INTIMACY

There was this triangular shaped stool I loved so much. I loved the concept of it having three legs instead of the conventional four. I wouldn’t want to call it an idol, but I cherished it with every fibre in me. I let no one touch or use it. I had just returned from school,...

SWEET NOTHINGS

“I love you,” he said, his mouth nibbling on my earlobes and his hands circled around my waist. I had heard these same words from guys before, but this was different. He had a way of melting my heart with his soft, feminine voice, and he knew the right words to make my heart flutter.I’ve...

LEAVE TO CLEAVE

I never knew I had married a mama’s boy, a big old baby who wants to remain latched to mummy’s bosom than to have an independent life of his own. I can’t imagine spending the rest of my married life receiving orders from my mother in-law and watch her control how I run my home....
