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 […]

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.

No wonder our society makes us feel like your life as a single […]

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.

I have a dear friend that once said to me: “It’s because of my input that my husband can be comfortable be a Pastor”. She probably may not remember, but I do. And I remember all the time. A lot of us women are so quick to look down on ourselves and even allow others to look down on us. I often hear a lot of mothers, especially the stay at home mothers, say: ” […]

“When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow.

I could spend hours praying and reading my bible without a single moment of interruption. I would read and study with various […]
