MY WRITINGS

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 […]

My PhD Experience

Just a few days ago, another one of my dear sister friends asked me a question I have been asked on several occasions . . . She asked, “How were you able to combine all the stuff you did while running your PhD program; being a wife, mother, blogger and obviously committed to church and […]

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 […]

I Remember When I Was An Honourable

I want to share a part of my life that I remembered few days ago and which left me reeling with laughter; and thoughtful after my laughter session. I am actually thinking that I should be referred to as Honourable Omolola yet again😁 For real, I was an honourable back during my University days. You […]

BEYOND THE SURFACE

  I was scrolling through Facebook News feed a while ago when I came across the beautiful picture of a beautiful woman, posted by one of my friends from way back. The picture had no caption and I had almost clicked on the LIKE button when I decided to read through the comments section first. […]

The Reverse Gear

On a certain morning just a short while ago, I went into the kitchen after our devotion to pack up lunch for everyone. Our daughter came in just a while later and said, “Good morning mum. God bless you in Jesus’ name”. I felt I didn’t hear her well so I asked what she had […]

Increase Your Capacity

The other day, I heard the Holy Spirit minister to my Spirit these words: “Many people pray that God should bless them when they are not ready to take the blessing” Let me expand this to you: If blessings or increase happen to an unprepared person, he will definitely fumble because he has not the […]

Thank God It’s Friday

“THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY” That is the usual chant of many people on Fridays; and probably that includes you. But why are you thanking God specially that it’s Friday? Many people make that statement because they feel relief that the working days of the week have come to an end and they are free from […]
