Earlier last year, I lost value for gathering with fellow believers. Online church was my thing. There were Sundays I skipped church to meet academic deadlines, showed up late and used the little one as an excuse to just stream online. My motto for this was God understands. He truly understands. While God wants us […]
God continues to speak to me and show His love for me THROUGH this boy. ❤️ You may be thinking or asking, “Huh? How can The Almighty use a 2 year old to minister to a grown woman?” I am glad you asked! The other day I was feeling quite defeated and my thoughts were […]
While DH and I have experienced a lot of monkey see monkey do moments with our little one, the most thrilling of them all is watching him lift up his hands when we worship. It brings me so much joy. Someday soon, the little one will understand why we lift our hands in worship and […]
“Mom, I am so glad you adopted me. We all fit together so perfectly. ” My biological son has no idea that he isn’t adopted. In his mind adoption means you were added to our family and that addition can happen through delivery or the front door. In a culture where words like biological and […]
God has a humorous way of showing us He cares. My prayer is that my testimony will encourage you to trust God with your life and open your eyes to this truth, You Matter To God! And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to […]
“We don’t swim in the toilet!” No. “Don’t feed your breakfast to the dog!” No. “Don’t eat MY breakfast!” No. “Don’t pee on the floor!” No. Whew! You guessed it: these are some commonly overheard phrases in my home. Life with a toddler- what a season! Some days I feel like all I do is…

My 2 year old is OBSESSED with 2 things- swords and my house shoes.He doesn’t like wearing his shoes… or socks… or the slippers we bought him for Christmas. BUT if my house shoes aren’t on my feet, we all know where to find them. But here’s the problem. They don’t fit him. They weren’t made for […]
When I moved to the U.S. in my late teens, I desperately wanted to change my accent. I wanted to fit in. I didn’t like my accent despite people telling me “I love your accent” several times. They often follow the compliment with “where are you originally from?”. That’s the question I didn’t like answering. I would have to tell them I am originally from Nigeria but I didn’t want to. That was the problem and motherhood solved the problem.
I think a lot of moms have been in my shoes. Let’s be honest. There was a time you had to or there will be a time you will have to take your child to the bathroom while you do number 2…except you are Hollywood type of rich or have a 24/7 nanny, family assistance, and husband services.
