Now that you have Confronted your spouse about the affair, and you have given him some time to go and ponder on his decision about whether he wants to fight for the marriage or not, what are the next steps to take?
Other than loosing a spouse to death, one of the most trying moments of any marriage is when there is an issue of infidelity. It’s true that trust has been betrayed, and the human in us wants to take revenge, or at least hurt back in the way we’ve been hurt, we must just stay […]

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 […]

Choosing a bible that your child would love can sometimes be a tough feat.
How do you know what kind of Bible you should buy for your child?
And what are the things you should consider in getting a bible that your child will come to cherish and make their own?
In this post, I share with you the four top things you need to consider when shopping for a new bible for your child.
God, we have been told, is Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent. He knows and sees all things. But, human as we are, we sometimes forget that God sees us. We know somewhere at the back of our minds that He can see all things, but we just are not convinced that He is actually taking a look […]

Read this and find out why you should never allow worry to take root in your heart.
“…Seeing you always had me in mind, I can’t stop wishing you left for my sake. If you did, I’d have still had you here with me…”
Most times, opportunities won’t come to us on a platter of gold – we need to be ready when they come.
And sometimes, we need to get up and create those opportunities for ourselves.
Do you have an idea that’s been burning in your mind?
Don’t just sit expecting things to fall in your lap.
Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10). I know how difficult it is to remain still in the midst of chaos, confusion and troubling circumstances. Being still is the last thing you want to do! I don’t know what your situation is or what challenges life has thrown your way. The Lord is […]
“What am I doing?”, Gloria thought as she made her way to the first floor. “Lord, please help me. This shouldn’t be happening to me” “Why did Uche have to come back after so long? Why?” Gloria thought of telling her husband about how she felt. But, she couldn’t bring herself to admit all the […]
The week went by even more quickly than anticipated. There was just too much to do. “Thank God”, she muttered to herself as she made her way briskly to her car. “I can’t wait to get home and soak in the bath tub. What a week.” “Hello Gloria.” What was he doing by her car? […]

“I never believed it could happen, but it did”
Most affairs are never planned – they just happen.
No one wakes up one morning and says:
“Today I plan to have an affair”!
But then, affairs happen, and this was for real.
I was once at a gathering of women where the speaker was giving an exhortation. Of all that she said, the line of thought that stayed with me and keeps me going even till now was: “What if tomorrow never comes?” “What if you never get married?” “What if you never own a house?”
