“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:14) How much more will it take before the Church wakes up and open her mouth? What kind of a future are we preparing for our children? Every time I pray about all that is happening in the world right now, […]
“Pray for mercy”..Those were the words I heard from the Lord as I prayed when the first wave of COVID-19 hit Europe. Within weeks of beginning a new year, full of hope, expectations and plans, a virus came from the east, swept over the world in weeks. Countries closed their borders, economies fell apart, people […]
This post is in response to my sister- Temi’s post about prenatal yoga. It is by no means written to hurt or offend anyone, but rather to share the truth as it has been revealed to me in scripture. I briefly mentioned my thoughts on yoga in the comments section of the abovementioned article. But […]

As a stay at home mother, one of the aspects of mom-life that surprised me the most was the isolation and loneliness that came with it. Mothers themselves don’t talk about it, and no one really asks. Everyone just assumes that mothers are busy taking care of babies and that they don’t really need company….
I will confess. It has been a hard couple of weeks. My family is currently in a season of waiting. I was low on faith and I found my self unable to trust in the Lord. I complained that He was making us wait so long when our needs were heavy. I let worry and […]
Recently, I came across two heartbreaking stories in the news. The first was about a father who was facing a life sentence in prison, for causing permanent damage to his newborn. The father woke up in the middle of the night to sooth his crying baby, and got more frustrated as the baby continued crying. The older son was also in the room with them, and the father got even more agitated….
“For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” (Deut 20:4, NIV) The struggle is real. It doesn’t matter if you are staying at home, or a working parent, whether you are a parent or not, the struggles become very real the moment you confess […]
Being a joyful mother doesn’t mean that things will always be perfect. God knows that my family drives me crazy. There are times I want to run away and I long for things past, but God always intervene, and challenges me to get my perspective back on track. He uses the voice of my 3-year-old son, who looks me in the eye and asks me “Are you happy, mummy?”
When I had my babies, one of the hardest things for me as a mother was when they began to fall sick. By God’s grace, my children are healthy. But when they do fall sick, it often brings to my mind parents of children with serious life threatening illnesses, and disabilities, and my heartbreaks for them. The pain they go through as parents is something My God knows all too well….
Over the years I have experienced countless ways God has provided for my family. He has provided for us in miraculous ways but also in subtle practical ways. Every time a need has come up in our family, we do what we did…………….
I am a wife and mother of 2 wonderful boys: a 3 year old and an 11 month old. It has taken me 4 years to say that with dignity and gratitude. 4 years of repenting, cleansing, molding before the Lord, to truly own up that role of a stay at home mother. 4 years […]
