It takes two to tango

Sometimes, scientific principles work well in real life. In mathematics, when you multiply a positive number with a negative number, the result is a negative value. This principle is applicable to marriage. I have seen under many circumstances, only one partner in a marriage willing to make the marriage work. The other person goes around […]

Please, Leave These Children Alone!

Children nowadays are under so much pressure compared to what it was back in the day. Parents want their 2 year olds to be able to write 1-100 and I am like for what purpose exactly?

THERE ARE STILL HAPPY MARRIAGES. YOU CAN HAVE ONE

I have had the privilege to relate with many people who have resolved not to get married. They, out of fear of the outcome of their choice believe it is better to remain single. I tell them, “I have been there before”. I had vouched NEVER to get married if the picture of marriage I […]

Quarantined for Valentine’s Fever

I attended a school for girls only. The norm was that when students were returning to school for the second term of the session (which commenced in January), they came armed with all sorts of gifts for their special friends. I really never knew how serious this issue of valentines day was until one day […]

SUFFERING IN PRIVATE BUT SMILING IN PUBLIC?

I see one of the Pastors’ wife quietly slip into the Church vestry as we were about to end the intercessory prayers that bright Sunday morning. The first thing that struck me that morning was the fact that she was unusually late to Church that morning. It was still quite early and we could barely […]

LEFT HANDED, NOT LEFT OUT: HELPING YOUR CHILD SETTLE IN WELL

Research reveals that 9 out of ten people are right handed. Therefore the 10% of the population are assumed to be “left out”. Raising a lefty can be a hard nut to crack especially in a society where right handedness is believed to be the normal thing. The truth however is that left handedness is […]

Sex Sanity In The Midst Of Sex Saturation

Okay, I don’t even know how I came about this topic. . . Ministered to my spirit or saw it from someplace? Found it in my note anyway. . . Yes, our world is sex-saturated. Women are being portrayed as sex objects. Children are being sexified. (Just don’t you worry at all, my dictionary will […]

There is sharing in love

Yes, I meant exactly what I just wrote. Today is boxing day and I don’t know if we all know why the boxing day exists. It’s supposed to be a day for giving presents out. A day of love sharing, especially to the less privileged. It’s always very easy to say “I love you!” To […]

Who can reckon with the following fictional descriptions of myself sometimes? Story Story. . . ° My family friend’s daughter comes to our house and breaks a flower vase worth thousands of naira- I smile at her while she stands helplessly with a face saying “I am sorry ma. It was a mistake”. I tell […]

All That Glitters is Not Gold.

As I sat there cracking walnuts, I began thinking about how blind our physical eyes truly are- even though they are wide open. My thought was briskly drawn to the several choices I have made and those I have seen others make (Marital choices, career choices, relationship choices, etc). You see, some of the walnuts […]

A Message For Men

I have read/heard about women who have almost bent themselves over backwards just to see their husbands accept the changes that have occurred to their bodies especially due to the rigours of pregnancy/ageing. I feel so sorry for women who are being tormented by the men in their lives who are supposed to love and […]

Just Wondering

Wait, when did you become a stammerer? He is there touching you in an unholy manner and you stand there saying, “Bro Peter, S-T-O-P it now”- sounding like a broken record. Really? I don’t get it. First of all, remove that ‘bro’ from his name. Then use “sharpymycin”. Call yourself to order, and flee. This […]

Nigeria, Look to The Lord

Right from the time preceding the 2015 general elections, I’ve been wondering what’s going on in the minds of the majority of the people in this nation. I read what many people write and I marvel. I hear some people’s views about the ‘change’ they look forward to and all I can mutter is, “God […]

Don’t Cast Your Pearls To Pigs

Stop selling yourself cheap. You have been bought at a price, a high price. There’s something called ‘gbanjo’ in Yoruba. This is when you sell your goods short of the price they are worth. You are desperate to get them off your stock even if you are running at a loss. You are focused on […]
