A Time For Oneself

The Bible says that there is a time for everything, and preaches the message of balance in our lives. In Christianity, we are taught to deny ourselves, and humble ourselves, putting God and others first. This message is important in a world filled with self-centred people who spend […]

New Mama Drama

Motherhood is uniquely hard, but it’s made so much harder by the pressures of others who disagree with your methods, or who push their ideas on you. Sure, we ought to seek advice, and learn from the mistakes of others.  We ought to know what to expect, so […]

Girls Run The World?

As much as I am an idealist, there is one reality that I cannot escape – that this is indeed a man’s world!  I am certain that Beyonce knows this, even though she chooses to sing songs to motivate women to see themselves as leaders, even as she […]

The Boyfriend And The Husband

The boyfriend has it the best!!!  He can do no wrong, and every good deed he does is golden 🙂 The husband, on the other hand, can hardly get it right!  Any good deed he does is suspect.  I mean, what is he getting at being so nice? […]

We Need Each Other

I need my husband.  I knew that before I married him.  I knew myself well. After enough failed relationships and a heart still soft and desirous of love, I knew I needed someone who knew how to love me.  Who knows how to be affectionate and sincere.  I […]

I am Pro-Life, but… (Part Two)

In my previous post, I concluded my discussion by ending with an appeal for women to take the sacrificial route, rather than demand their right to their bodies and life in the abortion debate.  However, I thought more on it and realised that the debate doesn’t end there. […]

I am Pro-Life, but…

Yes, there’s a but.  There was no ‘but’ before I got pregnant myself and experienced the reality and the mystery of it all.  Before, there was no argument in my mind about it.  I was – and still am – Pro-Life, because of my fundamental belief in God […]

Don’t Let Me Fall

(Originally published on ufuomaee.tumblr.com) Don’t let me fall! Though I throw my head back And I scream and I shout And I act like I don’t want you around… Don’t let me fall! I don’t know what I do When I do these to you But you should […]

Dear Mama

Thank you for giving me the best of you… Even when I didn’t appreciate it. Though I didn’t always understand your discipline, thank you for chastising me in love and for teaching me what it means to be a woman. Thank you for being a living example of […]
