If you still haven’t made up your mind, this will give you many reasons to do so…
Reblogged from www.DistinguishedLives.com…
Remember when I wrote about the firstÂ TWTW Meet (please click here if you havenât read it yet), Iâm so excited to inform you that there will be another meet soon sooner soonest! The next TWTW Meet comes up 8 days from todayÂ â Saturday, 30 July 2016. Who is as excited as I am?!!
Like I said in the First Meet post, TWTW (The Women at The Well) started with about 8 ladies honoring Frances Okoroâs meet up invite on her blog www.hephzibahfrances.com.
We were just ladies looking forward to having good girlfriend time sight-seeing the Nike Art Gallery, having godly conversations, and sharing ideas with each other. And boi, were we disappointed?
Nada! We left happier and more fulfilled than we imagined. That singular meeting has been more rewarding than I anticipated. Meeting these awesome ladies has turned my life around positively on several fronts, one of the tangible fruits being the birthing of this blogâ¦
What seemed like a one off meet has since evolved and is continuously growing into what God has before time predestined it to be. After that first meet in November, 2015, weâve had two subsequent ama-amazing meets (in Francesâ voice), in each quarter of this year â one in January at Kingsâ Court, Victoria Island.and the second at National Arts Theater, Iganmu, both in Lagos.
This quarterâs upcoming meet is even more special because itâs the first TWTW Meet with a guest speaker. For the past three months, weâve been having Bible studies on the themeâMarriage Todayâ and our guest speaker Mrs. Bola Essien-Nelson aka SALT (make some noise!!!), the formalDesperate Naija Woman, will be helping us round off this topic with Godâs word and real life experiences.
AuntyÂ Salt Essien-Nelson has been married for 23 Years and hereâs a little profile on her to whet your appetite:
Bola Essien-Nelson is a working wife, mom and blogger turned published author living in the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Lagos, Nigeria. In 2009, her love for people and passion for writing gave birth to her blog ministry, The Salt Chronicles (formerly known as the âDiary of a Desperate Naija Womanâ) which serves as a platform from where Bola does her best to encourage people to join her in her quest for Authentic Christianity. Bolaâs draws her inspiration from all of the life going on around her. She truly believes that, if only we would pay attention, there is a lesson to be learnt from all our experiences; good, bad and even the downright ugly.
For three years, she wrote as the âDesperate Naija Womanâ but in January 2012, God gave her a new name. He called her âSaltâ sending her out with a new mission: To use the âVoiceâ He had given her to draw lives to His Light. Her first book, in this new dispensation is a collection of fables titled âTrue Confessionsâ.
Havenât met Aunty Salt in person but Iâve read a bit about her and heard amazing testimonies about her from friends who know her. All TWTW meets so far have been ama-amazing even with some challenges (like the last meet where we literally had some mortal combat with sandflies, lol), I know and feel it in my bones that this next Meet will be better than all the previous ones (our meets keep getting better and better!).Â Pretty, if youâre still contemplating about coming, please make up your mind already and come. I can assure you itâs going to be so worth your time! Better experienced than told!
Hereâs Aunty Saltâs comment on Francesâ Facebook post about the upcoming meet:
âThank you Frances, Iâm super excited about this. But can I just say this right now:
Dear Ladies, Sistasmine, please donât come looking for some Holier than thou woman who has all the answers. Cos I donât o! But guess what? I know and love The One who does. And for a better part of the 23 years, my MGM and I have learned to let Him have the final say over our home, lives and marriage.
Easy? Iâm sure you know itâs not. Doable? Yes. I stand to testify, especially when you agree not to craze at the same time. Lol!
Anyway, just thought to manage your expectations? as you come. I look forward to sitting with you as we learn together at the feet of the Founder of this thing called Marriage!â

PS: The Women at The Well (TWTW) is about ladies who desire to be filled in and with Jesus; women who have a heart for God and desire to grow in Him.Â Women who recognize that only Jesus can fill them up and a husband or job or money can never do that for them. TWTW currently runs a whatsapp group where we have bible studies every Friday, prayers on Saturdays, praying in tongues on Sunday nights, and every other day for serving encouragements to ladies as they walk in Christ.

Look forward to meeting with you soon.
