#Monday Motivation

Look, the Lord your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the Lord God of your fathers has spoken to you; do not fear or be discouraged.’ “Nevertheless you would not go up, but rebelled against the command of the Lord your God; “Then I said to you, ‘Do not be terrified, or afraid of them. The Lord your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, […]

Mom Productivity Tips – Eat That Frog Now

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

I have a habit of heading into the kitchen as soon as I finish dinner, drop my plates in the sink and start to wash up. My hubby dearest cannot for the life of him understand why I do things like that. “Why don’t you rest for a while first?” he would ask. I usually respond with:”If I would still be the one to do these dishes, I’d better get them done now”. I would […]

I saw these words somewhere and it stuck to me: “Don’t wish for it, work for it” It’s another Monday and the beginning of a new week; as a matter of fact, the first Monday in a new quarter. In my Hello April post, I tried to bring words of encouragement about perseverance even when you feel like giving up. The last quarter is gone and you can only work with what you have within […]

Our #Inspired Series for today has been birthed out of the things I have experienced in the last few days. As usual, I share my thoughts and #LifeLessons with you with the hope that you will be encouraged, admonished and possibly moved to action in certain areas of your life. Today’s post will revolve around Speaking Up. In pondering on this, I have come to realize a profound truth. There are always voices around us […]

A Brand New Week is here again! I wrote a short poem a few days ago about Leaving the storms of life on the outside. I was going to write an article at that time, but for some reason, as soon as I sat to do that, a poem flowed out instead. I started writing that post about a month ago, but I left it in the draft with only the title written. [See Leave […]

#Inspired Series #5

A lot has happened to me between the last post on #Inspired Series and now. It’s amazing  how much can happen in one week. As usual, there’s always a lesson to glean from all that life brings our way. Today, stay with me as I share my #LifeLessons with you. Today’s lessons will be centered around Diligence and Consistency. This quote by William Penn sums it all up: Patience and Diligence, like faith, remove mountains […]

This is What Happens When You are Diligent – The Story of Oresegun Olumide

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Inspired, Mom Talk, Musings

Do you see a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. – Proverbs 22:29 That’s the story of this Nigerian Oresegun Olumide who got featured on CNN. Looking at his work, one can almost find it impossible to believe that they were paintings.   This story has been making the rounds on social media for some time. I was not surprised when I then saw […]

Our #Inspired Series is a time where I share some of my #LifeLessons. These are things I glean from others, book I come across, some random quote somewhere, practical life issues, and even from my friends and family members. This past week was a journey of Discovery for me on many fronts. I learnt quite a lot about my fears and how to handle them. I’d like to share some of those lessons about fear […]

#MondayMotivation – Move Out of Your Comfortable Place

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Girly Inspiration, Goal Setting Series, Inspired, Mom Talk

“Step Out of Your Comfort zone”, everyone seems to be saying to you. We often think it’s in the big things – not at all. Stepping out of your comfort zone is doing anything that makes you uncomfortable, even in the slightest way. Your comfort zone is the place where you can do things without thinking about it! It’s normal for you, it’s routine and you’re just very comfortable. Your anxiety level is steady, and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

#Inspired Series #1

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Girly Inspiration, Goal Setting Series, Inspired, Mom Talk

In the last few weeks, I have taken to a practice of writing down anything that jumps out at me. From reading a book, the bible, listening to someone speak, watching a movie, speaking with people, looking through a Blog…anywhere. And when I write down, it could be in any form. It could be the good old pen and paper. It could be on my phone writing app and better still, my text-on-image app. It […]

“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. The daughters were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. They came to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. They stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest and before the leaders and the congregation and said, “Our father died in the wilderness. He wasn’t […]

Get Rid of The Baggage and The Garbage – Prepare for The New Year

It’s been a great year whether you feel like it or not. If you doubt me, think about how far you have come and how much you have been stretched beyond your expectations this year. I am just so grateful to God for keeping us till now. When I think of the fact that the enemy does not desire for us to be alive and thriving, I can only return the praise to God for […]

Don't Get Mad, Get Even?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Girly, Inspired

I am sure one of the most ‘perplexing’ things to my husband about me is that I do things in the dark a lot of times, especially in the mornings. Most times, I get up before my alarm goes off and I just stumble into the kitchen, put on the cooker, start making breakfast, all in the dark. He finds it amazing and he asks always: “Why are you working in the dark?” It’s odd […]

Welcome To July

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Inspired, Uncategorized

It’s a New Month and I am particularly delighted to be a part of this Month of July. I woke up this morning rather contemplative. My 3 year old daughter looked at me and said: “Mummy, what wrong?” I said, “Nothing is wrong dear. Why did you ask?” She responded, “Because you look sad”. I couldn’t even give her a response as she had moved on to another activity. I just smiled to myself, “this […]

One Reason Your Goal Seems Elusive – I Got This Lesson From Swimming!

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 […]

Hello June! Time For Quantum Leaps

Posted 12 CommentsPosted in Inspired

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 […]
