Wisdom Weekly: If You struggle with Laziness Read This!

Hey beautiful people, I bet everyone is having a great Saturday morning so far. Here in Lagos, it rained and it just made me want to stay in bed all day and do nothing! Whenever it rains like this, I always joke around with my friends saying that this is staying at home weather. Especially if it’s on the weekends, then I absolutely don’t want to do anything. Which brings me to today’s topic, Laziness. All of us at some particular point in our lives have had some encounter with laziness, or is it just me? I can remember there were seasons in my life when there was “nothing for me to do” I was going to bed late and waking up late, I just used to hang around in my apartment and do nothing. I ha

Movie With a Message: The Greatest Showman

Who else has missed this section of the website? It is not easy oh, finding the time to be dedicated to source great movies and watch them with intention.

Pornography: The Dirty Little Secret

Gosh, this topic is one of the hardest issues to talk about, especially in the Christian community. People act like pornography isn’t a problem, but it is one of the silent killers. Like those odorless harmful gases such as carbon monoxide which quietly seeps into your system, mimicking oxygen and eventually kills you because your body can't tell the difference, that is how porn starts out "harmless" and then eventually destroys you! What is pornography? Let's begin by defining what it is; pornography can be described as the depiction of erotic behavior as in pictures or writing, intended to cause sexual excitement. (According to Merriam-Webster dictionary) Just from its definition, we can a

Even the bible tells us that "wisdom is a principal thing, therefore get wisdom."

Revisiting Ground Zero: Hindsight is 20/20 (pt.8)

Hindsight is 20/20, how many of you have heard this phrase? it's as if after something happens, and we look back on our lives, that the scales fall off from our eyes and we can now see clearly. Like the Jimmy Cliff song that goes "I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all the obstacles in my way, Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind, it's gonna be a bright, bright sun-shinning day" then it goes ahead to say " Oh yes I can make it now the pain is gone, All of the bad feelings have disappeared, here is that rainbow I've been praying for, it's gonna be a bright, bright sun-shinning day." Y'all can tell from most of my posts that I also love music as I keep incorporating them i

Saving Yourself (Pt.2): Boundaries

Hello gorgeous people, today I continue the series that is titled Saving Yourself. On the first part of this series, I touched on the topic of Abstinence (Sex before marriage). I talked about how we as believers can practice abstinence before marriage, and the benefits of it (check that out if you haven't). Today I continue the series with another aspect of it called Boundaries. After my horrible relationship experience (Revisiting Ground Zero), I was honestly sick and tired of relationships. It was as if nothing was working out, I usually gave my all to my relationships, but nothing seemed to pan out. So I began to look back on my life to see where I must have been doing things wrong.

Boundaries

After my horrible relationship experience (Revisiting Ground Zero), I was honestly sick and tired of relationships. It was as if nothing was working out, I usually gave my all to my relationships, but nothing seemed to pan out. So I began to look back on my life to see where I must have been doing things wrong. It's funny (intentional) how God starts to put things in your path when you need them the most. For me, I stumbled upon this Christian woman's page on Instagram, who was always talking about relationships and how Christians needed to date the godly way. Some of her mindsets I found a bit extreme initially, but as I grew out of the pain and the hurt of the past, I began to see much mor

Revisiting Ground Zero(pt.7): The Revelation

It all makes sense now Those times when he would leave me at home, saying he was going to hang out with friends, he was actually going to spend time with Lola. When he picked up random fights with me, it was so that he could leave me, and go around town with her. When he complimented her body in the presence of my family, it was because he knew what it looked like behind closed doors. When he talked about her friends, it was because he was spending ample time with them. When he asked me about specific details of past relationships I had, and threatening to break up with me, if he found out I was lying about them, it was because she was feeding him with lies. No wonder she didn’t come to see

Revisiting Ground Zero(pt.6): The Beginning of the End

Who else is excited to continue this series with me? Just me? Ok! Kidding! This has been one of the most read posts on the website, and I am glad that people find my personal story interesting (I never knew I had some depth to me, haha). The purpose of sharing my journey with you all is that hopefully, no one makes the same mistakes that I did in the past. Since I have revisited this journey, it has made me evaluate my current relationships, to see if I am going down that road again. John Maxwell once said, "Our best teacher isn't experience, it is evaluated experience." So we can go through things countless times, but if we don't take a step back to evaluate those experiences, pick them apa

Wisdom Weekly: Fear

Thank God its friday! Welcome to another wisdom weekly post, where we promise to bring you weekly nuggets that can help you carry on with your day to day life. Last week we brought you a video by Jay Shetty talking about it is never too late to start again (check that out if you haven’t); Today we are going to share a video by Will Smith, addressing fear. Everyone has dealt with fear in one form or the other in their lifetime. Right now as I type this, I still harbor some insecurities, and I wonder why I carry those fears with me.

This movie set in 1945, is a story about a young man (Desmond Doss) who wanted to serve his country during the war, without the use of a weapon. During that time, Desmond and his br
