I can’t believe that I have been married to my amazing husband for six years now. Every day, I have to pinch myself because it is so hard to believe, considering our early beginnings, that we made it this far. I know all the glory belongs to God, but I can’t help but give my hubby some props.
He is a good man, if ever there was one. He’s got such a strength of character about him that is almost regal. Despite all I put him through. And he is so smart and resourceful and has been very successful in business. I feel so proud to say that he is my husband!
However, I am sad that I haven’t been able to give him a child. We are still believing in God for one. I know that I have been forgiven of my past sins and healed from all I went through.

I just thank God each day for the man I married because he never ever makes me feel unworthy of his love, and it has been so amazing being his wife.

That small hotel was just the kind of investment Ope had been looking to make. It had promise, being located at the thriving Ikate area of Lekki, Lagos.
They’d used six months to fix it up and furnish it to their standards and opened for business at the start of the New Year. Ope thought it would be great for Promise to make the hotel her own and run it for their family. She had been overwhelmed with emotion, especially at the faith he was putting in her not to run his investment to the ground. She had no managerial experience or even an understanding of the hospitality industry. She had suggested that he get someone else to run it at this early stage, but he had insisted that she could do it and promised he would be there to help her.
After only a month in business, things were already going well. Promise had no other preoccupation, so she threw herself into it…
