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 […]
If you ever think that working yourself to total exhaustion all the time is a sign that you’re a great mom, then you are mistaken. Total exhaustion is a sign that you have refused to take a pause and make time for yourself. There’s only one of you, and it becomes important that you preserve that one. There will be days when things around your home are not in impeccable condition. There will be many […]
“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 […]

“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate.” – Psalm 127: 3-5 I was reading this scripture again a few days ago. I just felt the need […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
