    How to Keep a Journal (complete step by step guide)

    I got a message yesterday from a dear friend; he has been following the series and just got himself a beautiful journal.     Just in case you are wondering, what is in a journaler’s tool kit? A notebook Any book will do. To spice it up however, you can get a fancy looking book (preferably a hard cover notebook) dedicated to this cause (Journaling). Fancy colours and designs especially are attractive; they tend to draw you close to the book (Lol, I guess that is just me.) You’d agree with me that a pen will be nice Small pieces of paper or sticky note (Optional but as time goes…

    Meet 5 Common Myths of Journaling

    What has held you back from journaling? In this blog post, I’m sharing 5 common myths and the real thing about journaling. Let’s jump right in, #MYTH 1 JOURNALING IS A GIRLY THING One of the myths of your journaling is that it is something girls do and has to take a dear diary format.

Personally, I begin entries with dates and heading, thereby making it easy for me to locate entries. #MYTH 2 ONLY JOBLESS PEOPLE JOURNAL Another myth is that it is for jobless people. This is so untrue; there…

    My Greatest Discovery About Journaling

    For several years, I have practised the habit of journaling. It took a while then I made discovery; profound, to say the least. Only to confirm later from external sources that it was not just me, as some really cool people share the mutual experiences with me… Perhaps, it explains why I am a one who journals and advocates journaling as a productivity tool. MY DISCOVERY From time to time, I’d go back and read portions of my journals. Different reasons actually prompt this task such as boredom, a bout of writer’s block, need a little bit of motivation, ginger, or simply looking for information I must have put in…

    Diligent Hands Rule

    During the sendforth program for our Batch B brethren at one of our Bible Study centres, the brethren shared their Adamawa experiences. How God used the journey to mould them and bring out virtues in them. A brother made a striking statement, he said “I arrived the land with a meager amount of #1,500… But learnt very quickly that God doesn’t bless empty hands.” No wonder bible says, “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Prov. 10:4 Shalom!     So folks, I’m working on a project. People desire to live a successful life but most times, it seems something is holding them back. What that something…

    Terrific Life Principle to Live By

    At the family house last night, devotion was a blessing. I’d share some of the wisdom I gleaned. WWJD: What Would Jesus Do? A commonly asked question when in search of direction, insight or clarity over matters. In fact, a multitude of believers grew up using this question as a model to find answers. The minister explained that to receive insight into what Jesus would do, we have to first understand What Jesus Did while here on earth. This statement, made a resounding sense to me. Because the topic for the week is As He Walked. He being Jesus, our perfect example from the Father. As we focus on Him,…

    The Right Way to Locate your Green Pastures

    Today, I will share a secret with you. Everyone is in search of green or even greener pastures. And that’s fine. I mean who wouldn’t want to leave a pit of miry clay for his feet to be planted on the solid rock. It is a good aspiration! A great pursuit and if you find it (i.e. your green pasture), then a blessed accomplishment. Yet, as humans, we stumble on a lot of things because of our limited knowledge. We make mistakes because we assume we know exactly what we are looking for. Most commonly, we think Green pasture is first about the characteristics of a geographical location. Of course,…

    Female and More: Breaking the ICE

    October 11th 2018 marked the International day of the Girlchild. (Theme “With Her: A Skilled Girl force“) In the same month fortunately, I began mentoring girls in Secondary Schools through a program called Female and More.

So we go by the acronym ICE which is to; Inspire a healthy self esteem amongst girls Challenge girls to solve problems and take on leadership roles Enable girls aspire and pursue greatness. For thirty days, participants read the amazing and…
