MY WRITINGS

Before you say, “I do”

There are things that every single person needs to know and do before they say “I do” to that person they wish to spend the rest of their lives with, but usually are ignored. Laying the right foundation for your marriage is essential for having a successful marriage. The information in this video is not […]

The Inner Circle

There are varying degrees of allowance given to people when it comes to having access to people in positions of authority. Imagine wanting to meet with the president of the country for something very important; you can imagine what it would cost you to get an appointment booked. Even if you are a professor in […]

MONEY IS GOOD

Hey, money gives you options! Don’t let anyone fool you. Poverty doesn’t make you a saint or a hero of heaven. It makes you miserable, self-centered, a sufferer and self-preoccupied. The more you operate in abundant living, the more you become more likely to be free, more useful, other-minded and a grateful vessel for His […]

God Or Gold?

One day, I walked into our family doctor’s office shortly after the release of my first book, THE BEAUTIFUL BRANCH and I am reminded of an incidence that occurred that day. He had requested some copies which he intended giving out as gifts to some of his church members and I had gone to deliver […]

Time and Chance

“Guess what happened to me on my way here today”, George yelled at the top of his voice. He had barged into Femi’s living room without knocking. “What happened? Is that the way to say hello, by the way?” Femi quizzed. “I am sorry guy. Hello. I practically fled here to let you in on […]

Who Do You Let Into Your Ship?

  While running my Master’s degree programme, I lived in one of the school hostels. The block adjacent ours was occupied by some guys. There was a particular room on that block, where the occupants were always blasting music anytime there was electric power supply. One day, I just started humming one of the songs […]

Disguised Blessing

I was traveling interstate one day and when I got to the park, I asked a woman if the seat beside her was already occupied by someone or not; I felt that the seat would be a comfortable one for me considering the location. The woman answered me in the affirmative, so I decided to […]

“Your earned gift is a job in my company, Regale Insurance Plc.” Fadeke’s eyes widened upon hearing that and repeatedly said “Thank you sir; Thank you so much sir”, joined by her mother; until Mr Smith said to her, “You earned it.” “Immediately I saw you step out to the podium to give your valedictory […]

Communicate and Take Dressing

I will like to share with you two incidences that occurred in my marriage; to let you know or further reiterate to you how important communication is in relationships and how you should react to sensitive issues when raised. The first incidence: There was a lady who was really close to my husband. They’d been […]

Rebirth 2

Wait a minute, what is that your surname again?” Mr Smith asked, facing Fadeke. “Olanrewaju, sir!” Fadeke answered with a broad smile on her face. “That’s like a rhetorical question though,” Mr Smith said as he laughed out loud. “I heard the name while you were being called out earlier to receive your award, in […]

Trade By Barter?

I was in a store to buy some cake baking ingredients sometime last year, and the store owner and her daughter, who obviously had just returned from school were acting a fun script while the store assistant picked out the stuff I requested for. The daughter brought out twenty naira from her pocket saying that […]

WHATEVER THE CASE

Reading the book of Philippians this morning brought great encouragement to my heart and I thought to share with you something from my gleanings. . . In the fourth chapter of that Book, Apostle Paul recounted how he was familiar with living through lack and plenty. He had learnt to manage the high and low […]

Rebirth 1

Fadeke is the only child of her parents. Her father died when she was four, burying her mother’s dream of having more children with her husband whom she loved so much and leaving her with the sole responsibility of taking care of all her daughter’s needs. It was really tough for Mrs Olanrewaju to take […]

Words At Work

I had a chat with one of my daughters a while ago and our discussion really got me thinking. I listened as she recounted how her father told her countless times that she was useless. She unconsciously began to believe what her father said about her. This affected her for a very long time. She […]

Whether You Are Caught Or Not

I remember back in high school how some students would take other students’ water in the hostel because there was water scarcity and rejoice that they were able to do so without being caught. It was called tapping… They would say, “Tapping is a game until you are caught, then it becomes a sin”. It […]

Reading is Key to Gaining Knowledge

When the Pharisees came to Jesus with the query about divorce, Jesus gave them an epic answer which keeps ringing in my brain always. Jesus asked them, “Have you not read?” (Matthew 19:4) OMG! In order words, if you had read you would have known the answer to the question you are asking now. You […]

Mutual Responsibility Is Required

  Marriage at its best is a relationship so close and intimate that the two of you work together as one. It involves mutual trust, mutual support, mutual defense, mutual comfort, mutual vulnerability and mutual responsibility. Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the […]
