A Short Christmas Message

Giving to someone who cannot return the favor is one of the most joyful things to do. As parents, we give the gift of time, love, money, and more to our children because that's what parents do, and most times we expect nothing in return. Especially when our children are developmentally incapable of giving back.…

Are We Keeping up with the Joneses?

This season comes with a lot of expenses. It got me thinking about our motives and the impact of financial debt on the family. Decorating the house, buying household items and gifts on credit just to keep up with societal expectations is sadly associated with this season. Instead of spending to keep up with the…

Netflix: The First Temptation of Christ

It's Christmas season and Netflix thought it wise to portray Jesus as gay in The First Temptation of Christ. Jesus loves and died for everyone with different 'sexual orientation' but He was not gay. Neither was He a drunkard as portrayed by another Netflix comedy. Such disrespect for the Christian faith should not be encouraged.…

It’s Mine

Gesturing and saying "mine, mine, mine" have become the little one's thing for a while. He is declaring his independence and making demands already?! He came to the world naked with no clothes, shoes, food, toys, etc. Then suddenly, he is saying "mine" to access whatever he wants without differentiating between what belongs or does…

End of Semester

Wow! I submitted my final paper for the semester one hour ago, and it feels so good to finally get a break. While I enjoyed reading articles and writing about the human brain, parent-child relationship, infant mental health, and all things early childhood development, I feel relieved from the pressure of meeting assignment deadlines. It…

When ALL Else Fails

This was not the post I planned to publish today, but this is where I found myself few hours ago as a mother. I felt like screaming and crying after spending almost 3 hours trying to put the little one to sleep. I had a paper to write with little time to spare. Spouse traveled…

Christmas Is About Giving and Receiving

In God's kingdom, giving and receiving are important. While it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35), receiving is also important. How can we fulfill God's purpose for our lives if we do not receive God's free gifts and enjoy the benefits of being a giver (Luke 6:38). Yesterday, I read a…

God and the Sex Scandal Lineage

There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah's wife (nameless in the genealogy, her husband was killed…

AMBER Alert for a Missing Child

Last night, I received an Amber alert for a missing two year old boy. It was my first Amber alert for a missing child. My heart was grieved, and I was deeply troubled. Suddenly, I became a spiritual superwoman. My family prayed for the missing boy, that he would not be harmed. Personally, I continued…

What Christianity Means to My Family

It is interesting that I started writing this post on the 14th of May, 2019, and I am finally posting it almost seven months later. I wonder if there are other bloggers with a lot of drafted posts containing one or two sentences waiting to be completed. I am excited to complete this post today…

Thoughts About Mary Mother of Jesus

This post by my big brother, Matt brought to light the sacrificial faith of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary did not only believe God’s word concerning her, she put her life on the line. Pregnancy outside wedlock was shameful, and it meant she would be stoned to death. Mary’s kind of faith could have subjected her to mockery, but she didn’t care. It shows me that living the life of faith looks ridiculous most times, it is costly, and it is sacrificial. Even fellow Christians may call one stupid with this kind of faith, but it shouldn’t matter.

I have been reflecting on big brother Matt’s post since I read it, and I am excited to share it with you. Be blessed!

Jesusluvsall's Blog

Wow here we are already. We only have 24 more days until Christmas. It is the first Sunday of Advent in traditional churches. My church is not a traditional one, but whenever Christmas draws near, I always think about Mary’s example for all of us.

When I think about Mary embracing God’s plan for her to give birth to Jesus, there are a few points that often get overlooked. They have to do with Mary being engaged but not married to Joseph yet.

Mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus, but by saying yes to God’s plan, it meant she entrusted her very life to God. In Deuteronomy 22 we read:

“If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of…

Say No to Comparison!

I have struggled with the sin of comparison on several occasions. I always depend on God's word to bring me back to my senses. There are several verses in the Bible that remind me of my uniqueness, royal identity, and God's plan for me. Whether we compare ourselves with others just to feel like we…

There is power in praying for your children — BEYOND MY LIMITATIONS

I was moved by Dawn’s blog post entitled, “I Will Give You Rest” and thought about my own child as I read her post. One of the greatest things about being a parent is watching your child grow up. That’s also one of the hardest things, particularly when the paths our kids choose don’t line […]There…

What Do Christians Owe Humanity?

Have you ever found yourself thinking or saying, "I don't owe anybody anything "? I have. The Bible says you and I owe something. We owe humanity the gift of love. Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.…

A Father’s Gift

Most parents want their children to have a better childhood, live a better life than they did, and achieve things they may not be able to achieve in their lifetime. Parenting presents us the opportunity to give our children the childhood experiences we dreamed of, and help another human avoid the costly mistakes we made.…

FIGHT with Family this Thanksgiving

Yes, you read that right. FIGHT! In a few days, we will celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. A day American families near and far gather together to celebrate life and family. It is a holiday of joy and conflict. I suggest that we do the following to position ourselves for a memorable and joyful…

Putting Family Before Work

We often say "family comes first". Yet, we find it hard to put it into practice. Sometimes, we find ourselves having to choose between work and family. Parenting makes choosing between career and family more complex. The time change or daylight savings exercabated the guilt I feel each time I pick up the little one…

7 Types of Godly Girlfriends Every Christian Woman Needs (for her journey)

Yesterday, the need for godly relationships was discussed on the blog. I piggybacked on Hasini’s post and emphasized the importance of community and asking for help. Apart from our immediate family members, our friends are often the ones we turn to in crisis. What type of friends do you have? I have friends who can shake heaven with me and tell me the truth when it is difficult to accept. Do you have such friends? In this post, Hannah Forbes-Smith asserts that every Christian woman should have friends with 7 key qualities. I agree with her propositions and I am excited to share her post with you. Enjoy and be blessed! 2 mins read.

Marked Life

Est. Read Time: 2 minutes

  1. A friend (or Spiritual Mother) who can shake the heavens in prayer – There is nothing more empowering than being able to call up your sister when you are going through spiritual warfare. I mean, a sister who knows and understands that the weapons of our warfare aren’t carnal, but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. She knows how to pray fervently, effectively, and violently when the need arises. She is an intercessor and watchman.
  2. A friend that she can trust – This gal sees and values your triumphs and trials. Your deepest matters of the heart are safe with her. No personal agendas, or hidden motives, secret competition, or breaching confidence. What is shared stays here.
  3. A friend who doesn’t judge or condemn – This friend doesn’t make you feel worthless and without hope when you’ve tripped up. She knows that we all…
