Add Empathy To Your Communication

The dictionary traditionally defines understanding as “the faculty of the human mind by which it. . .comprehends the ideas which others express and intend to communicate.” Yet in the Bible, understanding is not just a transfer of information, but empathy for the other person. Consider Exodus 36:1, which tells how two craftsmen name Bezalel and […]

Respectfully Leave Your Parents

You may have moved out of their house a long time ago, but have you really left your parents behind? God did not mince words when He instructed a married couple to leave their parents. The Hebrew word that normally gets translated ‘leave’ from Genesis 2:24 more fully means “to forsake dependence upon,” “lose,” “leave […]

Maintaining Emotional And Moral Fidelity

For too many people, Christians included, adultery is the first step out of a marriage. An emotional or sexual attachment to someone other than your spouse creates intense passions that sabotage trust and steal marital intimacy. For that reason, God stated emphatically in the 7th Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Adultery destroys […]

Three Are Present

The Bible has a lot to say about the benefits of fearing God. Leviticus 19:14, for example, indicates that a healthy fear of God will motivate us to care for the needs of the disadvantaged with grace and kindness.

Experience Is Not The Best Teacher

Yeah, you read right. . . When I was a single lady, I would speak about marriage with all authority anytime I was leading Bible studies. Someone asked me one day how come I knew so much about marriage and how I had answers available for many questions pertaining to marriage. I simply told that […]

The Mothering Ministry

When I think about the mothering ministry, the duo that comes to mind are Lois and Eunice (2Timothy 1:5). These two were the grandmother and mother of Timothy.  The genuine faith which Apostle Paul could perceive in Timothy had a source. Even if Timothy was opportuned to get his faith strengthened later, it all started […]

Pray As You Go!

    Don’t miss out on any chance to talk to God and to hear Him talk back to you. Prayer is as simple as that. No one should give excuses of not having enough time to pray. You don’t always have to shout your prayers out. Nothing stops you from praying Pray without ceasing […]

Add Some Feminine Skills To Your Profile

Yes, be open to new things. Learn. Pay for those skills if you have to. Don’t overlook the things you ought to learn when you can. Never let an opportunity to become a better woman pass you by.  I have heard of ladies who do not know how to cook. Some don’t like it either. […]

Body Packaging

Our bodies are supposed to be correctly and adequately packaged. When you package something, you wrap it. Packaging is to present (someone or something) in an attractive or advantageous way. When you package yourself, you should be attractive in a positive way.  When I look at ladies’ dressing these days, I marvel. Sometimes stunned by […]

O Thou Priest……. Check Your Garment

God chose the priests Himself. He picks who works for Him and what the person wears. As long as you are a christian, you are a priest. A priest’s garment, which is the uniform of the Kingdom of God is for beauty, honour, glory and dignity (Exodus 28).  Your dressing must bring honour. It has […]

A line of godly descendants- your children will carry a reflection of God’s character to the next generation, just as it did at the very beginning (Gen. 5:1-32)  God’s original plan called for the home to be a sort of greenhouse, a nurturing place where children learn godly character, values, and integrity. Too many couples […]

A Comparable Helper

    While all of us are called to help others- “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2)- the Bible places a special emphasis on this responsibility for wives. It also tells us that God specially designed women to be the kind of helpers that make them the ideal […]
