    #NowThatYouAreSingle… Chew With Your Mouth Closed

    I can’t remember having to adhere to strict table manners when I was much younger but I remember vividly how insistent my mum was that we chew with our mouths closed. In all honesty, my brother and I chewed our food like every other child we knew- casually, without much thought to it. But my mum would insist that we chew our food like it was a highly sensitive secret operation that no one should to know about. In fact, she would often add that no one needed to hear us chew. If you think this last one is easy, please try eating a dry and crunchy snack like chin…

    YOUR LIFE IS NOT “YOURS”

    Dear Sista, How are you Sis? We’re continuing our journey as regards our relationship with God and today I’m reminding you of one truth we conveniently forget as we journey in faith through life. Your life is not yours! It once was, but it no longer is. It’s quite interesting that we often want to have our cake and eat it. But we simply can’t. We cannot give our lives to God and still run our lives. We cannot call Him our Lord and still call the shots. We cannot be both in and out at the same time and there is no middle ground in this journey! To become…

    GROW UP

      Dear Sista, Yes! We made it to the second segment of this letter series. Remember I told you at the beginning that we’ll be looking into three dimensions of your relationships; your relationship with yourself, with God, and with other people. So, after 7 letters discussing you and yourself, we’re moving on. Today, in relations to your relationship with God, I’m charging you on the need to grow up! Sweet Sis, growth testifies to the presence of life. Wherever life is, growth is and vice versa. You simply cannot say that your relationship with God is alive without evidences of growth mirrored by an improving character, significant spiritual experiences…

    YOUR RESOURCES ARE LIMITED

    Dear Sista, How have you been? I sincerely apologize for standing you up for two weeks now. Though I longed to write, I just couldn’t come through with the letas. Perhaps if I had given myself a little more push, I would have kept the commitment. I am so sorry. It won’t happen again and I will try to make it up to you. Today, I’m sharing with you the wisdom of effective resource management and efficient delegation. The truth is that even if you can do everything, you cannot do everything. Your ambition to be “Jane of all trades and master of all” will eventually be halted by the…

    STOP UNDERESTIMATING YOURSELF

      Dear Sista, What a week! I’m so excited we are in the 4th quarter of the year. Can you believe it?! We started 2016 just yesterday! How is your week coming? In today’s piece, I simply want to encourage you to always celebrate and never take for granted who you are today because within you lies the potential that will initiate and give expression to who you will become. One important lesson we all must internalize in relations to our current status and the future locked within us is that “face value is usually false value”. In other words, you’ll always end up with an incorrect assessment of yourself…

    GET NAKED

    Dear Sista, I trust that you had a great Wednesday! I’ve got to tell you sis, God has been dealing with me on specific issues and though I can’t say I enjoy it, I love it! Like I said in our last letter, “you’ve just got to trust His methods and stay in school. Don’t quit because you don’t like it. You really won’t like everything you need. But if you need it, it’s wisdom to embrace it.” Sometimes, all you need to keep you going is the knowledge of God’s intense love for you that has made Him so committed to your growth and improvement. Well, that’s that about…

    STAY IN SCHOOL

    Dear Sista, How are you? It’s been a productive week for me so far and I’m optimistic that the momentum won’t drop. Today, I’m making good my promise to write you on PROCESS. Now, while I don’t know the particular area of your life in which you are going through process and what the peculiarities are, I’ll just write you from a general angle with all my love and heart as always. Sista, a lot of times we go through stuff (usually difficult stuff) that we don’t understand and because we don’t understand, we get anxious, depressed or full of complains. But we really don’t always have to understand every…

    LIVE BEFORE YOU LEAVE

    Dear Sista, How has your week been? Trust you are good! Ok sis, let’s get to it. Have you ever been in a season of your life where you just cannot wait to leave and move on to the next? Have you? Well, I’ve been there a couple of times and in fact, I’m in one of those seasons! Sometimes, I get so tired of “being on a spot” that I’m prepared to do almost anything to just appear to be in “motion” even if that “motion” doesn’t entail any meaningful advancement. However, after lots of trial and error, I have learnt to douse the pressure for change with the…

    The Pain of Growth

    Dear Sista, How are you? Sweet sis, you have no idea how deeply I crave to write you every week. I am encouraged by the mutual growth we experience through this journey. Iron, indeed sharpens iron! Thank you for helping me to stay sharpened as I sharpen you week after week. Today, I write you on a pain you must endure for the glory that lies ahead of you. Sis, do not be deceived, pain is a natural feature of growth. To step out of the usual and reach for new heights, you must brace up for some tear and hurt. But relax! It’s only for your better. We all…

    Add Some Salt

    Dear Sista, Trust you are having a great week! I hope that you read the letter I wrote to you last week and I trust that you are consciously lightening your luggage. Today I write you (as I remind myself)  on the subject of speech. Apparently, as humans, we all are somewhat public speakers. While we all do not speak to thousands or hundreds of people per time, we still speak to a good number of people, including ourselves, daily. But often times, we get carried away by this natural act of communication that we forget to wisely consider the value our speech conveys about us and the kind of…
