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!

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…

The Season of Joy

What a joy to see the first day in December! How did you feel when you woke up this morning? I felt like the atmosphere shifted for good, and my heart was thankful for the new season. While there have been attempts to make the Christmas season less about Jesus, it is hard to deny…

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.…

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…

Stay at home mom-life: My Banner

“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…

The Stay at home mom life: The Lord who sanctifies me

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?”

How to Start your Day Off Right

Few hours ago, the little one woke up while I was tidying up the house and meditating on some Bible verses (Thanks to YouVersion!). The little one reached out for me to stop whatever I was doing and hold him. I complied. While sitting with him laid back against my chest, I praised God, loved…

Reflection: The Army Values

I believe the willingness of soldiers to lay down their lives for one another and their nation is due to military indoctrination (transformation of civilians to military members) and the bond formed over time. The truth is that one cannot continue to think and live like a civilian when one decides to join the military.

Two Ways to Honor Military Veterans

I will be honest that I did not join the military hoping to go to war. I am thankful I did not have to. Some of my "battle buddies" wanted to deploy and retire. I just wanted to serve and leave. While I left the military with physical injuries, others left with both physical and…

How to Support Foster and Adoptive Families

The woman down the road that just had surgery, the man who lost his wife, and the new momma. I believe the most important thing you can do to support a foster family or any family is to......

Adoption Awareness Month: My Adoption Story

My life would have been different if my grandfather and aunt did not give me the gift of opportunity. That is what children in institutions need, an opportunity to be a child, have a family, to be loved and have somewhere they too can call home.....

Persecution of the Church

Most moms would lay down their lives for their children. We have said yes to C-Section to save our babies from distress. The joy of having a newborn makes us forget the pain and risks. We can rip apart a lion, walk through fire, and rip out our hearts to save our children. You know…

Walking in Mommy’s Shoes

I looked on in amusement as my daughter slid her cute little right foot into my black ballet flats, and after countless attempts, had her first success! Her foot slid to the front of my shoe and she clack-thudded the width of our master bedroom with surprising grace. How her one foot managed to stay…

Raising a Black son in the 21st century

Feeling afraid is a natural feeling of being a new mom. We’ve all laid awake at night pondering questions like, “do I have what it takes to raise this tiny human being when I don’t have my own life figured out?” “Am I going to ruin this kid?” But soon after the birth of my…

The Key to Raising an Intelligent and Socially Adept Human: Part 1

This post is particularly for parents of children ages zero to eight because most of the studies referenced are based on this age group. So....new moms, that baby in your arms isn't "just a baby". That baby is the future and what you do with that baby today will impact him/her in adulthood. If your…
