#Pray For The Kidnapped Kids in Nigeria

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk, The Praying Woman

A few days ago, a report was made of gunmen who gained entrance into a school (Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary) Ikorodu in Lagos, Nigeria, and three students of the school were abducted. I was quite disturbed about the news when I heard. I was just trying to imagine the kind of trauma those kids must be going through. My thoughts were also on the fact that it’s only the Lord than can keep. I mean it could […]

Should You Allow Your Kids To Have Sleepovers?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk

According to an Online Dictionary: A sleepover is an occasion of spending the night away from home, or of having a guest or guests spend the night in one’s home, especially as a party for children. On the question of whether to allow kids to have a sleep over, people have differing  opinions. There are those who will tell you sleepovers can never happen for them. In his Book “Raising Girls”, James Dobson, was very […]

#TipsTuesday – Maintain Vs Repair

Posted 4 CommentsPosted in Home Care, Mom Talk, Mom Tips

Are you in the habit of waiting for work to pile up before you attack it? Do you usually wait for one ‘Big Day’ before you do your cleaning? I find that piling up work doesn’t work for me. In fact, it just makes the task seem more daunting! When you hear the word ‘Maintain’ or ‘Maintenance’, your mind may immediately register on a car or some other heavy duty equipment or tool. Car owners […]

Welcome To March!

I was just pondering on the past two months of this year. As I sit pondering on what the next month is going to be like, I just wanted a word from God. Anytime I ask God for a word and He answers like He’s been waiting for me to ask, it’s always a word I will not forget in a hurry! So, here goes God’s word for us for Striving Nigerian Mom for the […]

Monday Motivation

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Goal Setting Series, Inspired

It’s a brand new week! A New week is always another opportunity for new things. The greatest tragedy in life is to put in effort in the things that do not really matter. I don’t know if you’ve ever had to work on a document that needed editing. You labor so much to edit, and you’re so glad to be done with your work, only to find out that you had been editing the wrong […]

#MomsPray Friday – Wisdom For Motherhood

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Moms Pray, The Praying Woman

Sometimes, some things happen to our children or they have some issues, or ask some questions, and we’re just at a loss. “How On Earth am I to handle this?” The truth is that living is an act and it requires wisdom. So does Motherhood. Why will I keep moving around in circles to sort issues out when I can simply look to the One who has the manual for life? If you’ve ever had […]

Can I Please Have Some 'Me' Time?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk

I don’t know if you had some friends that would always move around with a book when you were growing up? I was one of those kind of friends. Even at parties, I was sure to always have a book to read in my bag.  And it wasn’t until I was older that I realized that I just did that to avoid conversations with people. I’d rather read than speak with people. A lot of […]

Surprise! Surprise!

Hubby Dearest threw me a Surprise ‘Party’ over the weekend as it was my birthday! I didn’t believe he had it in him, I couldn’t believe I could be surprised. You see, I see myself as a ‘Detective’ – seeing things and hearing things others won’t pick out easily. I didn’t think anyone could pull that off so easily. I didn’t have the foggiest idea. Hmmmm, I was thoroughly, pleasantly surprised. In fact, I haven’t […]

#MomsPray Friday – I Am More Than This

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Moms Pray, The Praying Woman

If we pause long enough from all our daily activities, when we have a few quite moments, when we can search within ourselves, we often sense a certain discontent in our hearts. We often know that there’s more. There’s more to the usual activities, there has to be more. Life cannot just be all about this, there must be so much more. If you feel this type of discontent, then we are on the same […]

5 Things You Can Do To Help Your Child Deal With Negative Influences

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Parenting

I have simply lost count of how often do I have to ask my children “Where did you hear that from?” or “Who taught you that?” A Godly parent’s greatest concern is that their ‘well-behaved’, Godly child will pick up bad habits and be negatively influenced by other people. As much as we desire to raise children whose desire is towards the things that God wants, we cannot isolate our children from the world or […]

Parenting With Grace

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk, Mom Tips, Parenting, Single Moms

“Why do I need to keep telling you the same thing everyday?” I asked, sounding quite miffed. The answer came swiftly: “Why Do I Need to Keep Telling You Things too?” All the frustration drained out of me, leaving me feeling sheepish. That was God asking me the exact same question I was asking my kids. Why do we expect that God’s Grace will be available to us when we aren’t willing to extend the […]

Beyond Proverbs 31 – The Role of Women

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Girly, Girly Inspiration, Goal Setting Series, Inspired, Marriage Matters, Mom Talk, Relationship Matters, Singles

Our model Scriptures when it comes to how we should live our lives as women is often restricted to Proverbs 31. If we stretch that a bit, we can mention Ephesians 5. Should my role as a woman only be limited to these portions of Scripture. By the way, these only address married women. So, what should a single woman do? Nothing? No wonder our society makes us feel like your life as a single […]

Tips Tuesday – It's Okay To Say "No"

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Girly Inspiration, Inspired, Mom Talk, Mom Tips

I once had a friend who always found it difficult to say No to requests from people. He would go as far as putting himself in a position of doing something for about 3 different people in the same time space. He was a good guy, but soon the same people he was trying to please started to see him as unreliable. Why? He wanted to do everything to please everyone. Believe me when I […]

How To Help Your Child To Walk in God's Purpose Your child has a special place in God’s agenda and plans and this God-given purpose is too important to be left to chance.

“The daughters of Zelophehad showed up. Their father was the son of Hepher son of Gilead son of Makir son of Manasseh, belonging to the clans of Manasseh son of Joseph.

I know, it’s the Super Mom Syndrome! “I don’t need help.” “I don’t want anyone to see my shortcomings.” “I don’t want anyone to think I’m not a ‘good enough’ mom.” Those are the excuses you give yourself anytime you even so much as consider the thought of asking for help. Meanwhile, you are collapsing under the weight of it all. The pressure is killing you! Dear Fellow Mom, on Today’s Tip Tuesday, please remember: […]
