“…That your child that seems to be frustrating all your parenting techniques is a child on her way to greatness…”
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 […]
It’s the last Day of June! Have you done your Half Year Appraisal yet? How did you fare? Are you feeling disappointed? Are you beating yourself up over this? Understandably, you may need to take a look at that One Thing that needs to change as you move into the second half. Before you do that however, I want you to go before the Lord with an attitude of thanksgiving no matter where you may […]
The dream of every parent is to have good, disciplined, well-behaved children that will grow into responsible adults. That’s my dream too. I see the future of my children and what I can see there is good. I don’t leave it as a dream though; I make plans and I take steps to make sure that my dream comes true. A lot of parents leave the burden of parenting to others such as the […]
The awesome task of being a Mom can leave us drained for most of the time. In the first few weeks of your baby’s arrival, you may feel like your world has been turned upside down, everything seems to be happening all at once. Between trying to feed your baby, change diapers, giving the baby a bath, taking care of your husband… you may feel like you can’t take it for one more day.
Kids need boundaries and rules! Discipline actually requires a whole lot of effort. Believe me, sometimes it’s just easier to let the kids misbehave and not do anything about it. After a long day, I just wish to sit, curl up in the chair with a good book to read – I don’t really want to do any ‘Mommying’. I wish someone would ‘mommy’ me too.

This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance. This second, we can sit down and do our work” – Steven Pressfield [The War of Art] It’s another week! Take a look at the last week. Did you do what you set out to do? If you did, […]
It’s almost summer and a lot of folks are getting ready for the holidays. What are your plans for summer? This is the right time to start thinking about this, you know. Whatever your plans may be, if they include going to the U.S.A., I have a great recommendation for you. This is not a paid post, so I am giving you my candid opinion about this service.
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 […]
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. As parents, and especially as mothers, the responsibility is even more on us, to help our children discover the path that God has laid out for them to follow. When a child has a good idea of their God-ordained path, they will be more passionate about following the Lord as they will […]
Every plant needs to be nurtured to grow. This same way, every marriage needs nourishment to grow. The three-pronged nourishment that every marriage needs is Love, Affection and Desire. These three words may seem synonymous – and in reality they should be – but they often aren’t always present in the right doses in every marriage.
SUNDAY PLANNING + PREP Planning your week on Sunday can help make sure that you’re making the most of your time. When you plan for your week, you realise that, not only can you schedule items from your to-do list around important appointments and events, but you can make sure the most important things get done and that your priorities get done. Sunday is the day that works best for me. I usually sit down […]
