Making The Most Of Your NYSC Year

How To Make The Most Of Your NYSC Year

I had a blast during my NYSC year. I released my first book and entered into the foray of being an author. I spoke at my first speaking engagement and had other doors to minister open for me. I spoke at schools and started what I now run as an  NGO during NYSC. I started travelling and sightseeing which culminated into the women at the well ministry and then TWTW Travel and Tours business today. This blog grew in leaps and…

For Christian Writers/Bloggers: Let The Holy Spirit Breathe Life On Your Words

At Thirsty Conference in 2014 Pastor Chingtok said “a school is just a school until life breathes on it.. everything is just as it is until life (the Spirit breathes on it). So I translated it into: a blog is just a blog until life breathes on it. And so that year I took praying for the blog seriously. I asked the Holy Spirit to breathe life on every word on the blog. I asked Him to work on the…

In Him: The Only Way We Can Fulfil Our Purpose

‘For IN HIM we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ -Acts 17:28 NIV IN HIM was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. -John 1:4 NIV Remain IN ME, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. -John 15:4 NIV   I was…

But Why Are You So Picky About Choosing A Husband?

Dear Single Ladies And Gentlemen, I remember having an argument with some guys when I was at Nigerian Law School. I had said that I will not accept a man who would cheat on me and I believe that God won’t give me that kind of man and I was told to “go find that kain man na”. I wasn’t a new believer per say but I also really didn’t have totally strong convictions in God then. I was easily…

Knowing Jesus || His Faithfulness

One day my sister asked me; “why do you always like to sing this song?” What song? We are saying, faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… You are so faithful. Every time we had prayers and I was to lead worship, I would always start with that song. Ah, she just had to ask. Truth is, the personality of God that I hold on to the most is His faithfulness. I have seen God…

…Not For The Applause Of Men

Almost everywhere I turn… Instagram, Facebook, etc. There is such a grapple for fame and applause. Everyone wants to be seen as doing something for God. As walking in purpose. “I” am doing this and I am doing that. There’s just such a slap on your face when you get into social media and sadly this push to do one thing or the other has crept into the Christian fold.   Now, if you are not walking in purpose/your purpose…

Hope For Those From Divorced And Damaged Homes

Dear Single Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel the need to encourage those of us from messed-up homes today. You know, recently I have been feeling tugged on by God to hold a series of relationship, courtship and marriage events wrapped up in line with “Prayers for your future husband”. In fact, our next conference from “The women at the well” will be based on relationships and marriage. And my first response to God was to say that “Lord you know that…
