Being vs. Doing…

When we were much younger some of my siblings walked on their toes. My grandparents, uncles and aunties all had fun saying to them to put their feet down. LOL!!! Just the memory of it has me in stitches. Not sure if it was a paternal or maternal legacy but it was passed on to… Continue reading Being vs. Doing…

Hearing God…

Yesterday, I got asked this question: “How would you know God doesn’t approve of the person you’re dating? Hi @Eloxie , can you write on this? Would help a lot of people out there.” My response is not really relationship advice in itself. It is a little broader as it regards how to know whether… Continue reading Hearing God…

Make that call!!!

When we were kids, we had a PABX line. This meant that we had access to all our immediate neighbours via the line but we had to call the switchboard to make external calls to NITEL lines and they billed our home monthly. Sometimes, an operator called in sick and just a few were left… Continue reading Make that call!!!

Chuck it out

I used to be a shirt person and for a long time my work wardrobe was majorly shirts and suits. I collected work shirts in different colours and styles until I recently lost interest and gave most of them away. I started feeling more like work dresses and blouses and slowly my work wardrobe changed.… Continue reading Chuck it out

Divergent Outcomes…

I met Valerie towards the close of last year, she was working as a domestic assistant at my aunt’s home. However, I realised she could not really read and write. I found it quite surprising because my interactions revealed that she did not grow up in an educationally less disadvantaged area and she confirmed that… Continue reading Divergent Outcomes…

The Grind Stone

When I was much younger, my family was friends with a family with whom we visited often. They had a daughter who was close in age to my sister and I so we did house chores together very often. Imagine us doing the dishes for instance, whilst singing and harmonizing our favourite songs. However, this… Continue reading The Grind Stone

His mercy endures forever!

I remember how excited I was when National Common Entrance results were published many years ago and I had scored above the cut off mark. It was quite a high threshold so I was really glad the preparations paid off especially because of how invested my parents were in the preparation. That is probably my… Continue reading His mercy endures forever!

When the dust settles…

Ehis doubled his pace and walked briskly from after school lessons towards the barracks where he lived with his parents. He recalled the NTA announcement that the match would be aired at 6pm. That’s all he talked about during the day. It was the U-20 match between Nigeria and Russia at the 1989 World Youth… Continue reading When the dust settles…

Being Witnesses…

The more I think about Abba’s heart for his lost sheep, the more I realize that nothing about that ‘me, myself and I on the way to heaven life’ I once craved is really going to be possible if I let God. What God really wants is for me and you through our lives to… Continue reading Being Witnesses…

A Father’s Joy

As a child, I sometimes thought my parents were taskmasters. LOL!!! You know how you hear your name all the way in your bedroom from the living room and it’s to pass them the remote  which by the way is sitting next to them or to come open the door for a guest when they… Continue reading A Father’s Joy

Relationships…

This story is about a couple and how their actions inspired me greatly to be more. For me, they are #goals in this regard So, I was at the residence of Mr and Mrs A on Saturday and realized they were planning a party. Not a very big party but they hired a caterer, there… Continue reading Relationships…

The PT I know…

It’s amazing, the realisation that PT is 60!!! I remember when it struck me fully in the first half of 2016 that he was knocking on 60’s door, I could not believe myself. Suddenly, all I could see was a man who chose to be impactful regardless of the generation. So I am here to… Continue reading The PT I know…

Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year Y’all, I’m so glad we made it through 2016. One thing that has been on my mind is to start  ‘doing what I know.’ Often times, we know so much and do so little. For me, this is the time to stop accumulating more knowledge without application especially because I know the… Continue reading Welcome to 2017

Do You Know Him?

If you know me, you will know that I have a huge thing for Zaria based pastors, from Chris Delvan to Chingtok Ishaku and Joshua Selman. I listened to Pastor Chingtok Ishaku teach recently, and he shared a story that interested me. A few years ago Pastor Chingtok was trying to make his way to… Continue reading Do You Know Him?

Legacy vs. Inheritance

A few days ago I was reading a piece by Sam Chand and here is an excerpt: “People get those things confused. So I want to clarify it for you today. Inheritance is what you leave behind. Legacy is who you leave behind. Inheritance you can buy. Legacy you cannot purchase. For me to leave… Continue reading Legacy vs. Inheritance

#LOUDIT: Trusting His Heart

You know how you watch a friend journey through life and share somewhat in the highs and lows so much so that you feel like you could write an Oscar winning script out of it? That’s exactly how I feel about my friend Pearl and the amazing story God is writing with her life. I… Continue reading #LOUDIT: Trusting His Heart

What’s on your dashboard?

I was driving over the past weekend and my dashboard lights came on showing ‘Low Tyre pressure.’ I am able to drive several miles with the warning light on until I get to a vulcanizer. Usually, when I get to one, they have to gauge all the tyres to discover which exact one is low… Continue reading What’s on your dashboard?

Choose to enjoy your transition…

Some of you are experiencing an extremely dampened pace in your lives right now, and it may be an uncomfortable, even painful switch from the life you’re used to. I am not sure what it is for you, maybe God has led you into a place you thought would be booming with fruitfulness…only instead of… Continue reading Choose to enjoy your transition…

Excellent Credit Score

A friend shared a story with me. She recently completed her graduate studies in the U. S and upon graduation moved out of her apartment. She was supposed to return a router to the cable company so she called them several times to pick up but they never did whilst she was there. She left… Continue reading Want a better credit score? Pay your ‘router bill.’

Alero

It was the end of her fellowship and Alero smiled as she unpacked her gifts. Uncle Lawrence, her godfather, definitely knew how to surprise her. She got a new Macbook, she remembered mentioning needing a new one once in a conversation. She also got a lovely selfie stick and a note saying ‘go see the… Continue reading Alero
