Re-Examining Psalm 23:1- The Lord is my Shepherd; I SHALL not want

As a young girl privileged to be born to and raised by Christian parents, I had the exciting yet daunting responsibility of memorizing and reciting Bible verses at Sunday school and during special occasions in church. Unlike my older brother, I don’t enjoy memorizations if they don’t rhyme like poetry and especially when there are numbers/figures involved. I have simply ... Read More »

STAND IN YOUR TRUTH

Growing up, I got familiar with a saying in my mother tongue about the integrity of pictures and how what you see is what you get but our current reality is far from that opinion. We live in a time where almost everything, from our appearance to our speech, is cloaked with deception. There seems to be a growing culture ... Read More »

A REMARK ON FOLUKE DARAMOLA’ PHILOSOPHY OF GENDER INEQUALITY 

I bet you wonder why I’d go through the stress of writing an unsolicited response to a comment that perhaps is not worth much. Or, if you are quite familiar with my commitment to gender-related issues, you may conclude that I have no self-control. But I do. Yet, I seem to have friends who are relentless in their efforts to ... Read More »

S.T.R.E.T.C.H

I am eternally grateful for the timely wakeup calls I get every time I slip into complacency, at the wake of an achievement. This is not an uncommon practice for ordinary humans like me. Upon achieving a feat, we usually heave a sigh of relief and treat our egos to the buffet of accolades and praises that accompany our success. ... Read More »

WOMEN AND THE STRUGGLE FOR GENDER PARITY (2)

NOW, the debate over the years is that because the man is different from the woman then one has to be greater/ better or of more relevance than the other. But in the real sense, different and unequal are not interchangeable concepts or words. The age long fight has really not been about equality because God already made the man ... Read More »

WOMEN AND THE STRUGGLE FOR GENDER PARITY (1)

MANY of those close to me accuse me of being a feminist but that’s an assumption that depends on one’s definition of the term. Personally, I have struggled with finding where I fit in in this sphere, so I chose to do away with the concept and focus more on the cause which is of greater importance than definitions and ...

GET RID OF THE SPIDERS

Hi there. It’s my first inscription this year and I know I’m several weeks late but I hope you forgive me. And to my male readers who have accused me of reckless abandonment, I am sorry and I am consciously considering your petition for a letter series as well. I really hope you’ll start sending me ideas of what to ... Read More »

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO ON HIS BIRTHDAY?

It’s another Christmas and as usual, everyone is thrilled. This time, everyone but me. The generous parade of the green and red colors, buildings enlivened with decor and lightening, ornamented trees and buildings, bland carols with a repertoire of the same old or similar renditions, and yes, Santa Claus, are basic indicators of this once beautiful, now predictable season. “What ...

THE FECUNDITY OF EFFORT

Not knowing, earlier and divinely, what path in life will bring me to the fulfillment of purpose once bothered me a lot, especially because I have friends whose parents received prophecies about them before they were born. For some, their parents received clear instructions about them and their assignments during conception while others were given divinely allocated names that will ... Read More »

EVERYTHING GOOD WILL COME

Are you caught up in the chase? I’m talking of the exhausting efforts daily invested into certain aspirations only to reap worthless applauses and  approvals. I have discovered that we often don’t care much about how certain achievements will add value to us  and improve the quality of our lives and output but how people’s reactions to our achievements will ...
