ENTERING A JOINT VENTURE WITH GOD

I was reading a book, Raising Kingdom Kids by Tony Evans, and I came across a line where he said, “Raising kingdom kids is a joint venture with God. It struck me and I paused to think on it which formed the idea for this post. As Christians, it is our desire that our children...

PRAYING WITH GALATIANS 5: 22-25

It was one night in May while going through the scripture for the day by the YouVersion app that I decided to use this passage to pray for my marriage, and felt I should share it on the blog. Before this time, I’ve written in my journal that the verses of this scripture will be...

HOW INTENTIONAL ARE YOU?

Marriage requires intentionality. This is one statement you should bind on your hand and your forehead and impress on your heart. It should be you mantra, your sleeping and waking thought, and something you should be committed to doing. Some people believe marriage is such a difficult task to perform, it gets boring over time,...

A HEART FOR SERVICE

In the month of April and May, one thing that came to my mind often was service. One day in April, my waking thought was love is service, and marriage is about serving each other. In May, there was a day I woke up praying that I receive grace to have a heart for service—serving...

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

I’ve always wanted to write this post since last year, if I can remember clearly, but I didn’t get to work on it until now. With social media comes the couple goals, parenting goals, and all the other goals you can think of. Truth is, social media is a highlight of the lives of people...

WHEN CHILDREN ARE NOT FORTHCOMING

This is a reality so many couples are not willing to face, and society doesn’t even help matters in anyway. You hear things like in nine months’ time, we are coming to eat another rice. The self-appointed ‘pregnancy watchers’ begin to look out for baby bumps. And if conception delays further, some mothers begin to...

THE 100-100 MARRIAGE

In one of my videos I shared 4 months ago, where I said that it takes two to make a marriage work, someone dropped a comment on my Facebook page, asking me what percentage the man holds and what percentage the woman holds. I did not reply his comment because from his previous comment, he...

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,...

A THREE-FOLD CORD IS NOT EASILY BROKEN

This is not going to be a long post in anyway. It’s just a reminder for you to help your marriage. “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour… and a three-fold cord is not easily broken” (Ecclesiastes 4: 9&12). You and your spouse alone are a power couple...

MY MOTHER-IN-LAW STORY- JULIET AMBALI

Writing my personal experience and relationship with my mother-in-law has to be one of the sweetest things to write about. I’ll love to say that she is as simple as ABC but that may imply that only gentle women make great mothers-in-law. In fact, all women and men also who have the spirit of God...
