And as a planner mom, I find that I often hide my fears, worries and […]

Hi Dear Mom, I sent out a Newsletter to my email subscribers during the week and I asked them if they were getting frustrated with not being able to get your goals on course. You can check out that newsletter here if you’re not yet an email subscriber. [I wonder if you know what you’re missing out on though]. I learnt a huge lesson over the weekend that sort of reinforced my thoughts about why […]
Welcome To June! As I usually do at the end of one month to the beginning of another, I asked God what this month of June was going to be like. I like to ask God for a word for any new thing or season of life. It helps me to have directions and to know how God wants to deal with me in that season. Sometimes, also, I like to get a word from […]

“I am a MAP”. My son looked at me curiously. I said, “Yes, I am a MAP. I am a Mom Achieving Purpose”. Then, he smiled like “Oh, Mummy”. Finally, we have moved to our new site and I am so excited to be doing this today. So, you are also a MAP. As a map and as a MAP, what essential traits should you have? What is a map and what does a map […]

A lot of women who have children feel like they are so busy, […]

I interact a lot with young people, especially in church on a regular basis. I also have school aged children that are mine. I have found it very interesting when I hear parents complain about how the church is not influencing their children enough to do the right things. I saw an infograph on social media a few days ago and it triggered in me the need to finish this post [I had started writing […]

Thank You for being mindful of me. I am so grateful because I am convinced more than ever […]
My son was trying to memorize a poem just yesterday after school. The poem intrigued me because of the way it was written. Every line has “as….as…” For instance, the first line was: “As slow as a Start” or something like that. He then asked, why does it say “as slow as a start”? I could only explain giving the example of starting to drive a car. I said, “When you want to move a […]
This post was first written for and published by ‘She Leads Africa’. Just thought I should share here too. Don’t you just wish you had been taught about financial responsibility when you were much younger? A number of us only began to take lessons in handling our finances in adulthood. In our rapidly changing world, it has never become more imperative to teach our children the need for handling money well. In fact, it’s such an […]

Hey People! Read all about my interview with #SparkleWritersHub. You’ll find it interesting.
The holidays are winding down – at least in my part of the world! And it is back to school and to reality for you and the children too. Did I hear a sigh of relief from a Mom? The end of summer is usually a bitter sweet time. Sweet because you no longer have to spend all your time trying to ensure the kids are comfortable and having a nice time. And bitter because […]
Do you often feel like there’s more to this our present way of life?
Do you sometimes feel like your life should count for more?
Living the abundant life is more than driving the latest car or wearing the latest designer clothes. It’s being kingdom minded, bearing an unquenchable thirst and passion for God’s kingdom.
