The Story Of Easter

The Story of Easter

The story of Easter began from the beginning when God created the world and humans. He made everything beautiful and true and and joyful and real and righteous. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil existed and God did not hide it because it is not in His nature to keep us in ignorance. He told Adam about it from the very beginning - what it was and what it could do. Satan existed and could roam everywhere but…

LagosHouseWife - Are You An Atheist?

Are you an atheist?

Are You An Atheist? I really should stop staying up so late. That's when I have too much time on my hands and nothing to occupy such hands so my mind starts roaming everywhere. Today it roamed to atheism. I'm a Christian. I believe in God. I believe in Jesus. I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe in the Bible. I believe in Faith. I believe in miracles. I believe in the supernatural. I believe in angels. I believe…

Looking Back to Go Forward

2016 is drawing to a close and as always I'm looking back at the year. I can say the greatest thing to happen to me this year is my deeper relationship with God. And what I'm looking forward to in 2017 is walking even closer with Him. I learned to trust Him a lot this year. A whole lot. It took a lot of challenges, a lot of unnecessary heartaches and struggles but God succeeded in getting through to me…

My Passion

My Passion - My husband and I sometimes play these online games of 'how well do you know your spouse' where you ask each other questions about yourselves. Eg I ask him what is my favourite colour, he asks me what is his favourite food. The questions often get much deeper than that though, delving into childhood traumas, unfulfilled dreams, secret yearnings, personal fantasies, long-term visions etc. It helps couples get really intimate with each other. Anyway. This particular day…

What are you feeding your soul?

Recently, I went dark! *horror movie heart thumping soundtrack* Aka I went offline! *Gasp* No internet! *shriek* For a whole week! You can close your mouth now. Okay, okay. The theatrics is an overkill but if you know me, you will know that was huge. I love social media. I love online interactions. But more than anything, I love love love trawling the internet for recipes. It's what I do most. Every. Single. Day. And not surprising, I missed Instagram,…

Lagos House Wife - God And I

God and I (Part 1)

The God and I that I'm talking about is not the whole 3 in 1 Godhead here. I'm talking specifically about the Big Boss of them all - God the Father. And that is who He is to me - My Father! We have the full range of father-daughter relationship from babyhood to my current stage of 'hopefully past adolescence', now in early adulthood. I like to think I'm an adult in my physical life. As a wife and mother…

We are one

There was a post a while back where someone commented in terrible terms about Nigeria. It wasn't the usual corruption, government criticism frustrated lamentations that we all indulge in almost everyday about our country. It was instead a blistering condemnation and crucifixion of Nigeria in very harsh and denigrating terms. It disturbed me terribly and I was so sad. It took me a while to understand what I was feeling was hurt, and a little bit longer to realize it…

Let’s Love God Loud

Let's Love God Loud. As I was sitting down, thinking what topic to start this Mompreneur category with, I tuned to the Faith Africa channel and caught the tail end of Joyce Meyer's teaching as she spoke about us not hiding our lights under a bushel. She ended with this rousing cry - LET'S LOVE GOD LOUD! I immediately knew this is what I am to write about. In a world where we now have to apologize for our faith,…

The Seven Sons Of Sceva

“So this is the man Paul”, I whisper quietly to myself. But as quiet as I think I am, my whisper still does not escape my eldest brother's ears. “Yes, indeed it is” he replies heartily then reaches out a hand and drags me by the back of my neck to his front. I do not like the treatment but I have to say I am grateful to be in front of the crowd and not have to stand on…

My Name Is Deborah

Yep, that is the name I chose as my baptismal name. I didn't have to choose a name. I did my baptism in my parents church and they don't make it mandatory for you to choose a biblical name. But I felt like, so I did. And I chose Deborah. There are actually 2 Deborahs mentioned in the Bible. The first one is Rebekah's nurse and she is only mentioned once - "Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died and was buried under…
