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 […]

The Results Of Your Association

My attention was drawn to some flower plants in our compound some days back. There were two of them, different species, planted beside each other but with the same flower. I kept examining the plants out of curiosity. I was so surprised because I kind of know that one of the plants was not bearing […]

Waiting For Perfect Conditions?

Someone who is afraid to step out in faith is a disaster to himself. Your actions could be likened to you waiting for snow to fall in Maiduguri, Northern Nigeria. It won’t happen. (Well, with God nothing is impossible, but literally, . . .) You say, “No wedding till I have 5 million naira in […]

Maybe It’s Not Your Fault

Usually, when men decide to stray out of their marriages and back down on their marriage vows, the next thing people say is, “Woman, you must have driven him out by yourself.” They go on to say that it must be because she is not patient with him enough. Or that maybe she is not […]

Planning A Restful Weekend

The weekend is supposed to be a time for rest from the week-long labour. But what happens? It’s when the backlog of house chores are cleared. It is during the weekends too that you attend to social functions. And then prepare for the next working week. ¤ Decide to have a restful weekend. You need […]

Give Yourself And Us A Break

I continually hear people talk on and on about how the challenges they are facing are the most difficult. Some claim that no one has been through what they are going through and that’s why they cannot understand. They make it look like no one else could have survived if they had to go through […]

It’s A Girl? So?

  I don’t just get it. I thought the fact that more people are getting formal education was going to change things a bit. I still hear some men talk as if they have never visited a school. . . I guess we need to send these men compulsorily to Biology classes all over again. […]

I am a product of Grace!

Here’s the summary of my testimony:His grace has been sufficient for me indeed. The race is not always to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor satisfaction to the wise, Nor riches to the smart, Nor grace to the learned. It’s purely God at work in my life. He brought me out of […]

Pregnancy Is Not A Disease

Once some women get pregnant, they take up some unpleasant attitudes. They make it look like pregnancy is a plague or something. I totally disagree. Normal activities must continue (except your doctor says otherwise). Pregnancy sure deals with individuals differently, and your first pregnancy could differ from the second and even the third. If there […]

Children And Sleep

Sleep is a vital need, essential to a child’s health and growth. Sleep promotes alertness, memory and performance. Children who get enough sleep are more likely to function better and are less prone to behavioral problems and moodiness. That is why it is important for parents to start early and help their children develop good […]

Single Parent Families

Most children of divorced or separated parents spend at least some years in single-parent households. Another increasingly large group live with single parents who were never married. A smaller number have widowed parents. If you’re a single parent, brace up and take the bull by the horn. Raise your child according to your beliefs, principles, […]

Burping Your Baby

  Young babies naturally fuss and get cranky when they swallow air during feedings. Although this occurs in both breast-fed and bottle-fed infants, it’s seen more often with the bottle. When it happens, you’re better off stopping the feeding than letting your infant fuss and nurse at the same time. This continued fussing will cause […]
