PREMIER DESIGNER WOMEN WORKSHOP

  To God be the glory, we had a wonderful time at our Premier Designer Women workshop. There were rave reviews but more importantly  we believe that we were implementing God's design.  Our foundation scripture was Psalm 139:14; "I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and that my souls knows very well". The entire Psalm in itself

LORRAINE, JOS AND I

  Providence brought Lorraine Foute and I together in November 2015 while the Celebrate Recovery leadership team from church and I were in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria running a Celebrate Recovery  training at her husband's invitation.There are no chance meetings with God.

SANKOFA

    EQUAL BUT DIFFERENT “Who am I?” I, woman am  created equal with men but in marriage I have a different role from my husband which is submission. I made this statement at a woman’s retreat earlier this year and I was amazed at some of the responses it aroused. One

On International Women's day   I happened to tune into WFM 97.1 (Nigeria's first radio station for women and their families).

With tongue in cheek, he explained that there are original – originals, fakes and original fakes. Original-originals are the authentic items, fakes are cheap imitations and original fakes are expensive fakes. We are original originals,

Anchoring on God’s Love

GOD'S LOVE? WHO NEEDS IT? We all have our difficulties, I know. Many of us feel a 'spiritual and emotional high' when we are in church or some Christian gathering which soon dissipates when the reality of our everyday lives sets in. In this year, 2015 and beyond, I  want us to always
