HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME: LET’S GO DOWN MEMORY LANE

365 days is over and another is here. It seems just like yesterday and I’ve spent more than two decades on this planet earth and it’s been a bumpy and amazing ride. Let’s go down memory lane a bit. P.S: I have a gift for you so you have to read to the end. This...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FAM!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Not coincidentally, the 1st day of the year falls on the day Home Talks usually publishes a post. This is us (the Home Talks crew) wishing you a prosperous and pleasant 2020. The vision 2020 is now here. We’ve been hearing of it and we’ve been expectant,...

A DISCOURSE WITH DISCOURAGEMENT

At one point or the other in life, we are faced with situations that plunge us in the sea of discouragement. We are often thrown in with no life jacket on because we were not prepared when the storms came rocking the boat. With no other thing in mind but survival, we begin to find...

THE DISTRACTING NOISE AND HIS VOICE

We live in a world filled with too much noise. The distracting noise of the happenings of the world. Today we hear of a trouble arising from one country, tomorrow we hear of mass killings of people by some miscreants and violent men. At other time we hear of wars and rumours of wars. There...

DANGERS OF EXPLODING AND IMPLODING

We live in a world where people either keep their emotions all bottled up or let it all out in a rather unthinkable manner. Sometimes ago, I had a rather nasty experience with someone I knew.

WILL OF GOD

Tade had engaged herself in series of prayers wanting to know what God had in store for her. Lord show me your will have been her constant plea. I have not seen any genuine child of God who doesn’t want to be at the center of God’s will for their lives so I was not...

LET’S TALK FINANCE

Your financial welfare is my concern. I do not desire to see you experience any form of lack whatsoever. It is my great joy to see you spend money when the need arises. Even Bro. John in the Bible says “that he wishes above all things that we prosper and be in health even as...

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

It’s the beginning of the last month in the first half of the year, so I decided to make this post a retrospective one, with the sole aim of making us cast back our minds to the beginning of the year, counting the many blessings God has bestowed on us. When the year began, one...

MEN HAVE EMOTIONS TOO!

What comes to your mind when you see a well-built macho man shed tears as a way of expressing his emotions towards hurt or pain? It seems absurd and out-of-place right? I mean why should he show emotions, is he not meant to be a ‘man’? In our milieu, there seems to be an unwritten...

GROWING THROUGH CHALLENGES

I watched on as he struggled on his limbs. For every few steps he took, he had a dose of falling to the ground. Despite the repeated cycle of his fall, he was tenacious, rising again at every point. I wanted to help by carrying him, but I was restrained, not because I derived pleasure...
