I have sooo much I wanna say but no time to type biko.

Lol.

But let me just say that the new year brings with it fresh energy baby. Use it wisely. And one of the things you should give a lot of that energy to the WORD!!!

img-20170103-wa004

Literally FIGHT to keep a rich Word life going. Your altar burning. Your prayer life sizzling. Whatever the Word is, from your Church or to you personally from God, sit down and make a Ph.D course of it…

I’m really thankful for 2016 and very hopeful for 2017.

We have to RUN after our God-given assignments.

img-20170103-wa008

I love the Word for us at DCC

I am a LIVING Miracle…

And I love the personal Word God gave me.

Power Moves 2017,

img-20170103-wa005

themed right from Isaiah 54 v 2 and 3

Make your tents bigger. Clear lots of ground. Spread out. Enlarge. Open your doors wide. Lengthen your chords. Think big. Do not think small. Do not hold back. Strengthen your stakes. For gurl, you gon’ expand and spread in ALL directions.

(And that’s my Mix from various bible versions)

 

Miracles will really trail my path as I step out in faith for my Power Moves. See those scriptures above, I am squeezing every blessing out of it. No story ooo.

Phew…

Oh yup, I cut off my locs. Move on. Haha. The plan is a low crop. In gold or Red. Not sure yet.

Then I got certified too.

So Eziaha Bolaji-Olojo is now a UK Certified Health and Fitness Coach.

img-20170103-wa003

Jesus thank Sah.

We gotta prepare for the places God is taking us to.

My plate is so full this January, it is unbelievable. Thank God for this thing called STRUCTURE which I have put in place for CoachE’Squad. Thank God for my Pastor Mildred, DDK, Aijay, then Tara whose collective counsel and wisdom helped me put a structure I am too proud of in place.

So I have two full time Staff today. Hallelujah.

I also have a couple of professionals coming on board.

My Squad’5

A Doctor, Pharmacist, Physiotherapist, Nutritionist and Intern/Assistant.

img-20170103-wa007

This flyer is not quite ready but I can share a rough draft with yawl. As you can see, it is the same face cos we are trying to find a template that works. My color theme is Black and Orange so we are toning this all da way down!!!

I’m excited at all the plans God is accomplishing with CoachE’Squad. I am believing to host my own TV show…

The CoachE’ Show… Saved.Fit.FAB

Or maybe I will call it The CoachE’ Diaries.

Either ways I am convinced it will happen.

Plus I’m having my first LIVE TV appearance soon. Yay. I love LIVE TV. Haha

So much guys. Soooo much going on.

God keeps opening doors for me and i’m not even shrinking. I will make sure my roots in Him go deeeeeeep down so that as I get platforms and opportunities to make Jesus famous, I will NEVER get carried away. Never. Never. Never!!!

But to shrink or hide? God forbid. I am LIGHT!!! A’mo shine!!!

That said I have two speaking engagements this January. Let me let the Host of the second do the honors but anyone can guess. Haha.

img-20170103-wa010_edit

The first is this Saturday. Details in flyer. Come through if you can.

I will be speaking on Leadership in the home front and beyond…

Then my son is starting school this January. I have already started crying. Ugh!!!

I’m also finally getting a live-in help. Yay!!!

Then I’m kicking off Propel in my home from first weekend in February (more details tomorrow)

And then TFS Academy and PowWow with E’ 2.0

img-20170103-wa002

this month too. Details here.

Then my two devotionals!!! Of which here is one cover. Just promise me not to use anywhere else YET!!! Allow me the honors of launching on Social media first.

img-20170103-wa009

Was gonna Launch the Market Place Apostles one first but this morning in my prayer time, God told me to go with this first.

So January 31 is release date (I see you Ebele haha) and the Market Place Apostle devotional February 6. Exactly a week after. Both days are my nephew and niece’s birthdays too. My niece is 17!!! Wow!!! Uni this year. Her mom is just turning 40 this year. Wowza!!!

Ok, so it is a FULL year indeed.

If you know all the things I have yanked from my life ehn. Mehn!!! If it is not bearing fruit or not right for the season, it is OFF!!! Sometimes painfully.

You know, God asked me the same question He asked Joyce…

‘Eziaha, you have asked me for a lot. Now do you want it or not?’

Truly as your vision increases, your options automatically decreases. Nothing is easy sha.

Btw, special shout out to my closest friends. Yawl have been amazing pillars. Dunno what I would do if I couldn’t just pick my phone and talk to you guys at literally anytime…

Sapphire, Aijay, Ayo (who won’t see this cos she doesn’t care for my blog haha. She’s a fish), Funto, Ogochukwu, Priceless, Valerie and my Booski Dumebi.

Side note: Why is everyone using my sword pix in their flyer?

img-20170103-wa013

Kai. I jus’ taya. I need to start sending them the particular pix I want ooo. Abi? Lol. Dee, that is your job. This picture needs to NOT turn to pure water. Haha.

Ok, the bullies in my life (Read Ladder Holders- Dee, Teni and Bimbo) say I have to put up the Propel post tomorrow so let me save my energy. Plus I need to publish on DCC blog tonight. I’m publishing a transcript of the Message

A RICH SlipStream…

‘…Can we learn, can we glean, can we STAY IN THEIR SLIPSTREAM…?’

Bianca Juarez Olthoff. Propel Conversation series.

Happy new week guys. I am bursting with sunshine this week.

zcamera-20161009_140623.jpg

My online coaching classes are LIVE again and I realized just how much I had missed it.

textgram_1475828164.png

And all the fun and gists it brings

photogrid_1475914100124.jpg

Ok before we get carried away, let’s blog about the slipstream

S L I P S T R E A M!!!

Ever since I discovered this term, I have been throwing it into LITERALLY EVERY conversation I have. You see, I am super huge on mentoring and in my 10000 Teachers post, I mentioned how we have Teachers and Mentors who we don’t even have a personal relationship with but we lean into their lives from the materials they continue to resource us with – books, messages, seminars, social media accounts, etc. I called it stalking there, and if I had heard Bianca say this before I did that post, I would have said we should stalk them by staying in their slipstream

Slipstream: An area of low air pressure that is immediately behind a vehicle that is moving very fast and that other vehicles can ride in to go faster with less effort… Merriam Webster Learner’s Dictionary

Oh sweet Lord Baby Jesus!!!

I have literally LIVED in the slipstream of my Teachers all these years, and especially this year. You see, Bianca said this in the PROPEL EFFECTIVE DECISION MAKING video as she explained how that she makes decisions by consulting her mentors (wise counselors), and that we all should have both close mentors and distant mentors.

Bianca Olthoff

Bianca Olthoff

Per the distant mentors, she said we need not even be about trying to build a personal relationship with them or harass them to respond to our every tweet or comment (or ask for a FOLLOW BACK which frankly is the most stupid thing I see on SM). Most wise counselors and Mentors leave enough information in their slipstream and if we stay close to them, we will most likely find the answers that help us make better and wiser decisions as we navigate this life and its obstacles.

Lemme proceed on this by looking at this in two ways. First as the person staying in someone’s slipstream and then as the person who is leaving a rich slipstream behind for others to glean from…

I woke up last Friday morning to a question from my Sister on whether it was true that Gmama Joyce had gone to be with the Lord.

about-joyce

At first, my heart broke, and then even before I confirmed or not, I realized that the simple Truth is that Joyce, if Jesus tarries and other things stay equal, is going to die a LONG time before me. But that woman has one of the richest slipstreams ever in the history of any Bible Teacher or Preacher I know, so I quickly posed myself the question ‘Have I been maximizing this rich slipstream she leaves in her wake?’ because Joyce Meyer has definitely done her best to be a distant mentor to millions of women around the world, including me. Joyce is lavish in sharing information about her life, her ministry, her mistakes, her struggles, her relationships, etc.

Just see all the information and wisdom she dropped with us at Code Orange revival

I don’t know who it is that inspires you, but girl forget about whether they respond to your email or mention, just stay in their slipstream and soak in anything they are generous enough to share. And be very sensitive in your spirit too, so that you can connect the dots when they share. I also pray too that God uses my Teachers to answer specific questions in my life as they arise. This happens a lot with Christine Caine for me. If there is something I need clarity on, as I pray about it, a lot of times, I find my answer on Chris’s IG page.

It is crazy I tell ya.

Ditto Heather Lindsey. They have such rich slipstreams that sometimes I am like

You guys please stop tweeting or preaching let me finish grasping the ones you already have na’

Maybe you are in the banking sector, or anywhere in the career world, and you have a Mentor there. Maybe one of those Superstars with whom booking an audience is literally impossible.

Stop stressing yourself. GET ON Google, Buy their materials. Watch their videos on YouTube. Attend their seminars. etc. Don’t be there writing long letters and emails and waiting for them to invite you over for lunch. Probably won’t happen, but they have resourced you through their slipstream.

It just annoys me when a Mentor tells someone ‘Oh I have preached or written about it here. Please go and find it’ and then the person says ‘…ehn please but I still want to talk to you…’

Trust me, most times, most of the questions we wanna ask them, they have already dealt with in one of their resources. One-to-One mentoring is almost impossible these days. How many people will someone like Leke Alder, for instance see if he keeps doing one-on-one? But that dude pours out his knowledge on Social media literally daily, and has seminars and workshops but someone will still be foolishly asking him ‘Eh Sir please can I still get your number to call…’

Aaaaaargh!!!

Really, this generation we need to stop this nonsense. It is too annoying. Looking for special attention despite the rich slipstream a person has left for us.

We are too lazy to do the work the slipstream requires. We use our internet data to follow people’s lives on Snapchat and watch reality TV and movies. God forbid we google keywords and names and put 2 and 4 together to find wisdom for our current situation.

And that is part of what I will be sharing with the ladies who come on board my P413 intimate session which i hinted in this Post. How to effectively navigate slipstreams of our teachers. Hopefully my flyer will be out next week, but you really wanna book a space now.

Ok so the second part of this slipstream business is now turning the spotlight on us. The truth is, there are some people who are in your slipstream because you have wisdom about a situation they can learn from.

SHARE YOUR STORY!!!

STOP MINIMIZING YOURSELF!!!

Share your victories, failures, challenges, mistakes, etc. We have a funny culture in Africa where we ONLY share (or people just see even without us sharing) the good and the end product, and leave off the ‘HOW’ of our journey. Sometimes we don’t share because we want to appear perfect, we think we have NOTHING of worth to share that anyone can learn from, or we want a bigger platform. Some other times we don’t share because we don’t want to be seen as show-offs, or we just can’t be bothered to share. We don’t write biographies, blog, or put in our Memoirs.

I see someone I like and admire, I get online and there is almost NOTHING in the person’s slipstream. But in the Western world (and this also happens with Africans who grew up or were exposed to such environments), they are quick to tell their story, write a book, open a blog, etc. You know, a friend was gisting me of her friend who went through a bad patch in her new marriage and ended up divorcing, dealing with severe depression and then getting help and healing. Then she writes a book. That friend gisting me was saying it in a ‘Na wa ooo. What does she know that she is writing a book about?’ manner and me I was just laughing at her (my friend that is). You think someone needs to go to school for 6 years to write a book?

No, Sir. When you have a Story, you find a medium to share that story, whether via a book, a blog or your social media handles. That is the kind of permission that Social media and the internet generally has afforded us. You don’t need a BIG TIME Publisher. Just open a Facebook account and get the story out. Trust me, there are people who will one day stumble on your slipstream and you will be an answer to his/her prayers. Forget about how many people like it or comment. DO IT FOR THE ONE if you have to.

Now can I address Millennials (those of us born between 1982 and 2002) like most of my blog readers, who have active Social media handles and all? I know that in the past, we hid every single spiritual activity we did so it doesn’t look like we are being over spiritual or showing off. But honey, we need to take our light and shine BRIGHT in the SM world.

It is absolutely OK to come and tell me you got together with a group of friends and prayed for 5 hours straight. Oh my Darling, BRAG about your Christian friendships and relationships and stuff that sustain it. Brag that you are abstaining from pre-marital sex. That you used to be a Lesbian/Homosexual but not anymore. You do X Y and Z for Jesus. Brag to the heavens about your Church and how your Choir unit is da baddest!!! And how your Bible costs you so much.

screenshot_2016-10-09-14-55-27-1.png

Look closely, it is the FASHION EDITION yay!!!

And what percentage of your income goes to books, tapes and CDs. Trust me, it is OK to tell me that you went to an Orphanage and you make a habit of giving a percentage of your income to the poor. Talk about how you run your Company like a Christian Organization.

IT IS OK!!!

And before you go all Matthew 6 on me, let me beat you to it…

matthew-6

What Jesus was really about in those verses is YOUR MOTIVES!!! Why are you sharing? So that people will hail you? So that you can be approved, cheered and endorsed by men? So you appear important, spiritual, or rich? WHY ARE YOU SHARING?

That is the koko of that Scripture. If your motives are wrong, just SHUT UP. But if your motives are to inspire more people into the Jesus Culture, by all means share, with wisdom. And when the praise and glory want to be wrongly ascribed to you, RE-DIRECT THEM TO JESUS!!!

YOU DO NOT BRAG FOR ATTENTION. Like Paul said in I Cor 1:31, IF YOU ARE GOING TO BLOW A TRUMPET, BLOW A TRUMPET FOR JESUS!!!

You know, Joyce did this crazy good message on MOTIVES (sorry, I can’t recall the Title, I just journalled as I listened) and it set me free. I have a naturally showy personality but Joyce taught me to always check myself and filter the motives behind my actions through the Word.

The Christian world is lacking in examples ooo, all because we don’t want to appear ‘too Christian/holy’. They are shouting us out and down, and sadly, a lot of us are cowering.

Reducing and then ultimately losing our voices, finding them only when it is time to talk football or movies.

The world is Ok with telling you their sexcapades very proudly, and how much their vanities cost them but we Christians just wanna sha be ‘silent Christians’. WHAT AN OXYMORON!!!

Oh, how the world needs BOLDER CHRISTIANS. Bold, Deep, Mature and Joyful Christians. Christians who wear the tag so super proudly and BRAG DIFFERENT!!! There is someone in your slipstream who needs that info to take a step for Jesus. I know how hearing about someone’s giving just stirs my faith to give too.

Don’t worry if anybody yabs you or calls you out, like they attack every time a Christian is just being a Christian. If your motives are right, it should not even bother you. You should be too busy doing what God has called you to do, stopping long enough to pray for them out of LOVE and not to argue with them.

This is really not about cheers and jeers or applause and condemnation, it is about Christ, His Message and Culture, AND your SLIPSTREAM both for now and the future.

Oh how grateful I am for Christians like Wale Jana who I featured here. He brags wella about his faith (@walejana on SM Sites) and I am not saying you should be like him, I am saying be proud of your gospel and wear it well. Don’t let the fear of men and their rejection stop you. How thankful I am for Heather Lindsey who shares a lot about her life and whose slipstream is so rich.

She gets attacked a lot, but it doesn’t stop her. The people in her slipstream are thankful and the many more who will find it someday will be too. I sure am!!!

I am also thankful for myself and the slipstream my blog and life offer. I get all those emails that wanna advise me or shut me down but frankly, I don’t even look at them twice, or respond. No emotional energy to waste explaining myself to anyone. I just know I didn’t do it for you, JUST YET, (because chances are high that one day you will come back to resource and equip yourself from my blog). I just carry on with my assignment and do my MOTIVE-CHECK all the time with my Jesus. You can be sure that if He tells me Eziaha do this or that, IT IS AS GOOD AS DONE!!! I don’t have time for the world, Which is why we should not live for worldly approval. If we do it for the world, then their disapproval will get to you.

DO IT FOR JESUS, He is enough!!!

And then do it for the people in your slipstream.

The slipstream is real guys. Let us get to living our lives fully for JESUS and as we are led, we share in our slipstreams so that we keep the FAITH GOING IN VERY PRACTICAL WAYS.

That definition of slipstream above ministers to me because of a couple of words within

Slipstream: An area of low air pressure that is immediately behind a vehicle that is moving very fast and that other vehicles can ride in to go faster with less effort… Merriam Webster Learner’s Dictionary

As we learn from people (and vice-versa), we learn the lessons without all the pressure and mistakes they made, and we can go further, and faster more efficiently and with less effort (not ‘NO effort’ ooo because we must pay our own price) to get even better results.

I mean how amazing is that?

So even when I share my stories, there are many people who avoid stepping on some of the landmines that almost destroyed me. And then there are many more that are clueless on how to navigate a certain situation and wham!!! They are flooded with light when they read something some bold FIERCE CHRISTIAN CHICK has written or spoken about. And they too can take that to their own slipstream.

But remember, WE BRAG DIFFERENT… The GOAL is JESUS , NEVER us!!!

Whoop, if you missed Squad 1, I will be starting another CHRISTMAS-IN-OCTOBER promo from Friday October 21 to Saturday November 19. Still 6k in Naira for the 4weeks.

And then my next Class after that will be in December!!! Guess what I Christened it? (Yup christened haha)

DISCIPLINED IN DECEMBER!!!

Because the yuletide is not a reason to throw restraint and discipline out the window. It is Jesus’s birthday not ours and we all know Bros J got discipline on loc’down!!! So that will be for those who want to stay accountable at Christmas, and then they also get my CHRISTMAS GIFT which is a workout tee branded with workout related Scriptures… Whoop!!! Christmas is looking LIT already!!!

 

PPPS

If you are not on CoachE’ mailing list, you may wanna get on board. I send weekly emails on super fun and super educative Food and Fitness matters, especially for women. Today I talked about why some women snap back easily post-baby and some don’t. In the past I have discussed CS and Vaginal delivery, The Good&Naughty Carbs, etc. It is like a private blog post, so drop your email or mail esquad@eziaha.com to request to get on it. We really need to pay more and better attention to our health especially as women. If you think the info won’t help you now, it will in the future ooo.

Plus connect with me too on Social media

IG @eziaha @coachesquad and Twitter: @eziahaA @coachesquad

And CoachE Facebook page here. I share so much information there and that is a good way to stay in my healthy slipstream. And generally be in my life because I share a lot on both platforms.

 

PPPPS

Yay!!!

Can't wait!!!

Can’t wait!!!

Abuja is almost here and sometime this week, i will do a Post with more details on this and info on how to be one of the two Chicks I wanna sponsor for this. Please tell all your Abuja friends to come through!!! I am privileged to be in Funto’s slipstream and see her fire and love for God girls and I truly can’t wait to see all that God will do in and through His ladies in Abuja and environs!!! Great time to be a Chick who loves Jesus. The Women of the Bible days must be RED-JEALOUS haha!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEAUTIFUL…

You know, I am building my own Book reader App THE FAB E’ BOOK app (which by the way is costing me an arm, a leg and 2 uteruses lol) and after we reached an agreement, the last thing I told her (Yup, I am using a techy female GEEK) was 

‘…I LOVE colours. I am a super sanguine, so let the colors pop and let it be BEAUTIFUL!!!’

Sisters, I am all about THAT BEAUTIFUL LIFE yo!!!

I have even been accused of favouring finer Chicks over fine Chicks hahahahaha. Like, can you imagine? I won’t even answer that accusation, but I would say that I can hardly see a drop dead BEAUTIFUL Chick and NOT compliment her. Either her, or something she has on, or a BEAUTIFUL quality I admire in/about her.

My GORG  bestie and Mercy Lokulotu photobombed us

 
There is just something BEAUTIFUL about being a woman, that makes compliments like ‘i LOVE your cheek bones’ never awkward…We held our very FIRST Propel Lagos meet on Saturday, 

and I recall being kinda blown away by the beauty of 2 of the Chicks I was meeting for the first time. as I hugged them, I was sure to tell them emphatically ‘Oh my gosh, you are so beautiful’ more than once.

Which is why, it is easier to get me to attend an ALL Chick meeting than a meeting with some testosterone (shout out to my male readers tho. One love mehn haha)

I am so thankful that we never run out of Chick only events. I think God just leaves everything and camps with His Chicks whenever we gather to call upon His name. Aside blessing us with spiritual AND material blessings, He blesses us with the gift of humans!!! Follow Girlfriends. I still recall Warrior in Heels. Kai!!! Do you guys know it was after that meeting I started SavedFitnFAB? 

All because I heard DDK say ‘Apostles in the Market place?’ Do you know how much DDK has changed my life? Do you even know the ripple effect of that meeting as per the many other relationships the prayers birthed there has brought my way? (if you listened to the mesages ddk preached, you would have heard all the prophecies she dropped. My Spirit can’t stop thanking my Pastor Mildred for both organising that meeting, and then insisting I meet DDK. You know, God truly does LOVE his daughters and I know He drops BEAUTIFUL gifts when we gather to worship Him. Material gifts and Gifts of Sisters. It doesn’t always happen immediately BUT something drops in your Spirit, teaches you just how to pray, directs your life and brings you to your Squad, both Teachers, Helpers and Covenant Friendships. 

Then can we talk about the BEAUTIFUL refreshing that happens to your Spirit when in such gatherings. Just sisters, lifting up HOLY hands in worship of Jesus!!!! 

Not gossiping or being catty. Just pure fellowship!!! Dunno about yawl but where Chicks gather in worship of Jesus, and when the Host is Mildred Okonkwo, the darlingest Pastor I know, wild horses can’t keep me away as long as I am around ooo. See ehn, if I’ve seen God beautify a life, Pastor M’s life is it!!! 

Sometimes I don’t know what to do with Pastor M!!! She’s BEAUTIFUL and honey, i’m not even talking the obvious physical. I’m talking the beauty within. The grace mama carries, the results mama has, the helpers mama has, the ministry mama has, oh the FAITH Mildred Okonkwo has is BEAUTIFUL!!! 

From infertile to THREE kids!!!!🙌🙌🙌🙌

And so when she shared the theme for this year’s annual Just us Girls conference, I knew God is definitely ready to make His girls BEAUTIFUL!!! 

You have my permission to do whatever to be there. (err, legit sha). I don’t even know why Beautiful is NOT tomorrow!!! Or even now!!! Gosh!!! Ah!!! 

Yes these AMAZING people above will be there but who cares??? Jesus will be there guys!!! JESUS!!!!

  J E S U S!!!

The One who makes ALL things BEAUTIFUL in its time. The testimony giver, the way maker, the destiny changer, the friend-provider!!! The One who can change your story in a split second and make your life BEAUTIFUL!!! Oh sweet Lord baby Jesus. 

I. Can. NOT. Wait!!! 

No, seriously. Forget about your challenges and just come. Infact, bring them and come exchange it for BEAUTIFUL gifts. And if your life is already beautiful, AMEN!!! Now let’s take that beauty to the next level so you can impact your world with even more beauty. It is this Saturday 24th at 4.30pm. A touch of Pink is dress code but hey, come as you are if you don’t have pink!!! 

Oh and that thing I said above about ‘who cares?’ err, I care about the other BEAUTIFUL people coming abeg. 

Let’s look closely now…

PC!!! 

Yawl know I have a spiritual crush on PC (sory Remarhed lol) Heaven usually kisses earth when PC ministers. 

Yesterday as He ministered in Church, God knows I just got lost for a minute or 10. 

How. Can. Anyone. Be. So. Anointed??? Was looking for brother man to get a hug but he disappeared soon after. 

Come, you will see what I’m saying when you hear PC. 

And oh Accapella!!! 

Not many comedians have got me rolling like him. Clean and funny jokes? Count me ALL IN please. 

Oh and the guest minister Pastor Jerry Eze???

AUTHOR OF STREAMS OF JOY devotional?

 Just bring your journal cos heavens will open!!! 

Clear out your Saturday guys. 

See you at BEAUTIFUL cos honey that’s where Jesus will be… Yes. And AMEN!!! 

Love love love and remain BEAUTIFUL!!! 

Eziaha. (& my BEAUTIFUL Pastor K)

And mehn, THANK YOU for living for Jesus even more cos of my posts. He is ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!!! Comment when you can tho, love the feedback, but beyond the comment, LIVE IT just as i am…

Eziaha PROPELLED!!! Lessons from my life…

Hey guys. 

Ok lemme share some lessons I picked from Propel that totally and radically changed something in me. Yawl know me, when I like something, I go all the way IN!!! 

I discovered Propel earlier this year, and I desperately wanted to see a video from the curriculum. Not the ones on YouTube ooo. The ones that were being sold. You don’t wanna know how deep I dug to finally find Video 1 from Curriculum 1 online. 

I recall it was one of those periods where I would put KingDaveed to sleep, then do something for myself from then till 2am or 3am before I slept, praying fervently he doesn’t wake before 2 because I had done nothing else all day. 

That night, I sprawled on his playmat, with my journal, highlighters and Bible. I couldn’t believe that FINALLY I had found ONE video in a ‘hidden’ corner of the Internet. 

Ok to explain the Propel curriculums. 

It is like a series of videos where Christine Caine and 4 other ladies discus the woman and how she leads at the level she is at using super practical examples both from life, and their lives. Then there are studio guests who get to ask questions too. 

These sessions are recorded and 6 sessions make a curriculum. 

The idea is that people come together in small groups or chapters to watch the videos and discus among themselves practical ways they can apply all they have learned in their marketplace. 

I had seen short clips used to promote each curriculum and my people, I entered online crevices and holes to find it anywhere. They were not selling digital copies and they weren’t shipping to Nigeria. 

Imagine my joy to find a full length video that night. I frankly wasn’t ready for what was about to hit me HARD. Kai!!! You see, a question I couldn’t even articulate had been gnawing at the seams of my heart making me very very uncomfy until answers showed. And my goodness, did I get answers or what!!! 

So lemme give a kinda summary of ‘Balance and the myth of having it all...’ 

Love alli

Alli Worthington, mom of 5boys went first, right after Chris did her intro on what the session was about,

The intro

and everyone introduced themselves. 

She said the whole ‘you can have it all’ mantra thing started from Cosmo magazine which had told women how they needed to look, what they needed to do and how they needed to live in order to have it all. And women down the ages have just bought that lie and are depleting themselves trying to have the ALL that God didn’t endorse. 

And she says YES we can have it all BUT it is all about SEASONS. What is your ALL in your current season? Not about what a magazine prescribes. 

Lisa z AWESOME

Lisa Harper then explained how we can make the mistake of comparing our lives to a certain Celeb or Hollywood personality who seems to have IT ALL including an organic garden and every time she comes out, she also looks perfect, and is the perfect size too (her hips dont touch. Lol i fainted. Didn’t know that was a thing). 

What we conveniently forget is that she, on her own, does not have it all, but she has a retinue of assistants… Personal assistants, Driver, Gardener, Makeup artist, Cook, Personal Trainer, etc. so she doesn’t REALLY have it all. Lisa being the funny mama that she is says, when she sees such a woman, she just wants to hit her over the head with her own Manolos. Lol
Recall when I mentioned in this post (Who got ya on LOCKDOWN) that I was comparing myself to this Chick with the #workingMom #DateNight hash tags on IG, meanwhile our life situations differed? 

It was Propel that gave me that wisdom, and liberated me fully.
Lisa further says that we need ask ourselves what our ALL is, then what we are willing to RISK to get that ALL, and then give our own RACE our ALL as we run towards the finish line, happy but totally EXHAUSTED and certainly not looking perfect.

Bianca. Love her new book…Play with fire

Bianca Olthoff, whose relationship with Chris I covet, because of how closely they work with each other (btw if you ever watch those short V-logs of Chris on her own YouTube channel, it was Bianca recording it all), explained how in order to maximize our day, as we run through our ALL, we need RHYTHMS and ROUTINES!!! Yes she is a creative and we all know that the average creative wants to just go with the flow in order not to stifle creativity, but no, we have to be INTENTIONAL in order to maximize our day.
You know, this lesson on Routines is what I FIRST shared with my mentees in TFS Academy (of which the Post introducing it is visible again, but the next session starts October) because that’s a secret to maximising your day. My personality would prefer to be spontaneous, almost borderline indisciplined, BUT I learned really early from Rev Albert Oduwole who has a personality like mine, that we have to discipline ourselves into routines and not just ‘jaye-jaye’ through life because I am Sanguine. Hearing Bianca say it again spoke even more to me.

Mercy

Mercy Lokulutu, who’s Nigerian, talks very fast, and is very feisty then tells us how two things would help me guard the vision of God on my own life
CLARITY and DEFINITION!!!
So I need to take my tail to God and ask Him what it is I am supposed to do in my current season, pick the TOP FEW things I am supposed to do and then CRADLE them.
As a woman, be careful NOT to JUGGLE but cradle, even as we multi-task. I still hear her voice as she says ‘…I juggle, I don’t cradle…’ and she tried to paint a picture of how juggle and cradle differ. 

to juggle

To cradle

You have to define, and then guard because EVERYTHING God has told you to do is under attack, especially the attack of the internet and Social media.
Kai!!! This revelation now is giving me life as I have been JUGGLING.
She also proffers practical solutions to it, and I am actually actively putting that in practice NOW!!!
She said YOU MUST CUT BACK TO MOVE FORWARD, because as my VISION increases, my OTPIONS automatically DECREASES!!!



The wisdom Mercy dropped is LIFE!!!
You know ehn, this is really me now. My life vision is thoroughly increasing and I keep hearing the P31 woman whisper to me

 ‘I expand PRUDENTLY without courting neglect of what is infinitely important…’

So nobody is saying don’t expand. All I am hearing is expand, but with wisdom. I truly have to cut back, but I need to be sure I am cutting back on the right things.
You know, this month, I decided against having a Coaching class. It means I said NO to between 200 and 300k at least, and while I NEED that money, I had to recall what Bianca said about putting structures in my life.

My life, as at last month, even if I was bearing fruit, I knew I needed PRUNING in order to bear more fruit so I CUT BACK on a ton of stuff, including online coaching, and I am in that re-structuring season of my life atm. I am also downloading and defining what God would have me do too.
By the time I am done re-structuring my entire life and vision, I would then bear even more fruit.
You see why I am passionate about PROPEL and Christine Caine? Looks like every season of my life, PROPEL has my answer.
Oh then Chris was the last to speak and trust her to bring the fire.

Her session liberated me.
She talked about her life is so busy, her life is so full, she is everywhere BUT what keeps her going is the fact that RIGHT at the MIDDLE of everything, she has put JESUS!!!
It is like a wheel, Jesus is that MAGIC in the middle of the wheel holding it ALL together and the presence of the Holy Spirit keeps her life well oiled, and it keeps nudging her on what to do and what not to do, to ensure that she doesn’t burn out. 

Because HE empowers YOU in your various seasons FOR ONLY WHAT HE ENDORSES THAT YOU DO!!!
And just like Lisa said, there are some things we RISK in order to have our God-endorsed ALL but we should NOT let anyone GUILT us for them because any kind of GUILT is from the devil.
To exemplify, sometimes you realize that your calling means you miss out on SOME of the MOMENTS in your kids’ lives as they grow. Or maybe your family doesn’t always enjoy the BEST home cooked meals because she is an itinerant preacher. It is easy to want to FEEL GUILTY, or allow the subtle comparison someone would hint at her and another say, full time stay-at-home mom. Or even the mom who homeschools. God graces us for our seasons, so we need to do our bit, and not guilt-trip or judge others.
Which is really where I appropriate the PROPEL QUOTE



She is UNJUDGING… of the choices that others make in their various seasons of life.



Plus, what you miss now, God can help you to later and even redeem it. 

Like I heard Lisa Bevere say once, and I NEVER forgot, OBEDIENCE PROTECTS!!!

Just to look a bit deeper into Chris’s life and how this plays out, that woman travels A LOT and in the past, she home schooled so her kids could come on the road with her often BUT now they are older and she doesn’t travel with them as much, so she has helpssss at home to take care of them, while she is mostly on the move. 

Holidays? She goes with them EVERYWHERE. 

I have kinda tracked with them all summer holiday and my goodness; those kids have been to at least 7 countries in just about 2months. (Low key beef) lol.
So yes she will miss some games and moments with them at school, but when she can, they make up with LOADS of family time.
Chris has grace for that. Shirer doesn’t have that grace but she has GRACE for what God has called her to do in her own lane!!! 

In fact I think Priscilla Shirer wants to be home more than she wants to travel to preach.

Colour conf SA

Ditto Lisa Bevere. 

When she had young kids, Lisa was intentional about NOT travelling because she wanted to be with her kids as they grew. 

Bevere love😍😍😍😍

She only started travelling more after her kids had grown. 

Chris went from the hospital WITH her new born baby to go minister at a conference. 

No kidding!!! Her first child.
And all these people are amazing friends and are all into Ministry BUT do it in the way they have been GRACED to. 

Chris n Shirer

And so far, I think all their kids are doing all right. 

So let’s not judge people and the choices they make in their seasons.
Chris recommends that instead, we have to be intentional about being each other’s cheerleaders, take the FALSE expectations off one another, and fill in the gaps for each other when we can SO THAT WE ALL LOOK GOOD!!!
It STILL takes a VILLAGE to raise a Child. Or even to birth a dream!!!
That’s what the BIBLICAL HAVING-IT-ALL looks like…
There ought to be something about Christian women where the world sees us filling each other’s gaps, looking out for each other, not comparing and competing or hating. That way, they are ATTRACTED to us and ultimately to JESUS!!!
Oh and moving on from Guilt (which by the way was a question someone asked), they tackled the issue of SHAME!!! (Another question. Propel organization is everything!!!)
Chris said she had also been shamed to REDUCE her personality because she is TOO MUCH for most people. And you are intimidating and blablabla. But she said she truly is not trying to intimidate anyone BUT she has come to fully accept herself as a HIGH CAPACITY WOMAN and there is nothing there to be ashamed, or be shamed for.
Kai, I think by this time, I was crying. Both for relief and then joy.
If we are not trying to guilt one another, we are trying to shame one another. Instead of just genuinely celebrating another woman. (Hey i am NOT exempt….i fall for that mistake sometimes too. Then repent)
You know, when the issues that led to this post WHO DO WOMEN SAY I AM, happened, it would have taken me out for some days. I would have truly felt shamed,and a need to REDUCE myself. It happened a lot to me in school, and I recall I came into my final year and my catch phrase was I AM GOING TO TONE DOWN!!! Those in my class would remember cos i was teased a lot on it. I would not talk in class, I would not put my hand up when group leaders were asked to volunteer themselves, and I just generally tried hard to minimize myself. I recall a friend talking sense into me, that really I needed to accept myself for who I am and not let opinions of others shame me into being who I am not.
Do I still feel that way sometimes, YES!!! But I remember Chris and I have hope. 

If you are HIGH-CAPACITY with ginger and fire for days, OWN IT!!!

!!!!!!!!!!

Pastor M tagged me in this Lisa Bevere post and I couldn’t agree more…
Oh but we also need to make sure we are NOT intimidated and pressured by individuals like me.
We can easily contrast Chris Caine to Victoria Osteen. But both women are super-duper FRUITFUL even if different. And frankly, we should not try to compare both.
Finally Chris wraps up by saying we also need to know that there are some LOW OUTPUT seasons of our lives, and this applies to both the ‘Chris’s’ and the ‘Victoria’s’ and we should be careful when we try to compare. Plus we too should recognize if we are in those low output seasons and not try to be pressured into doing more than we can actually handle.
That liberated me especially because at that period, I, the HIGH CAPACITY Eziaha, was in a low-output season. I had to fully immerse and embrace it, and then find ways to make it fruitful (which is why you saw me sacrifice sleep to study at night). So while I may not have been doing any kind of work the world glorified, I was not idle and jobless. I was crazy investing in myself. I was also working on my weight and learning all I could. Funny how all of that brought to bear as I navigated that season into a Food&Fitness Coach and brought the strengths from there into this. 

I desperately wanted to jump back into career but I had to learn SEASONS thanks to Propel.

When a woman has a baby or three and no help, IT IS LOW OUTPUT!!!
Simple!!! (except you are Caine lol)
In fact, even when a woman has just had a baby or 2 and help, it is still largely LOW OUTPUT!!!
No pressures!!! No shame!!!
If GOD didn’t grace you for that thing you want to jump into, you will be super-frustrated, and the fruits will always tell.
I recall talking to one of my dear friends who just had baby number 2 and her first is still young, and she is in a long distance marriage and she has NO HELP, and as she unloaded to me, I waited to hear something about work and her business and when she didn’t say, I told her I was happy her priorities were right. This is the season to fully immerse in motherhood, be authentically YOU and surprisingly satisfied.

The crazy thing about this post I hyperlinked above is that it is still one of, if not the most POPULAR post on my blog.
The truth remains that we all will give account of our lives to God on JUDGEMENT DAY, and since God told US and not THEM what to do without OWN lives, we should OBEY GOD and leave off pressures from without.
You see why I am so PASSIONATE about Propel? Because I saw it answer all my life questions at the time, and continues to as I move from season to season.

After watching that video, i wrote down practical steps to implement immediately. One was to BLOG less often. Yup. Wisdom.
Two Propel Quotes I also love have to be
She’s unhurried…

She’s UNSTUCK, she moves gracefully from one season to the next.
Propel is also another reason even in this season where I am a mom who works from home, I KNOW how to make even my ‘secular’ business about God.
I let my Faith and my JOB mix very passionately. 

Which is why beyond coaching I have an amazing relationship with most of my Clients, and I move from Coach to Sister best friend, counselor and Pastor real quick lol. 

Which is why my FIRST BOOK, MY FAB TRANSFORMATION STORY has Scriptures and God thrown into it lavishly, 

while still being super relatable. (Click link above for info on how to download or email ebook@eziaha.com for your copy. It is FREE) There is so much I have learned from Propel and continue to learn and I am excited to get even more Propelled with more Sisters. With Propel, the full career woman knows how to LEAD well even in the market place, as a Christian still.

Some of you who emailed after this post said they would like to join but couldn’t do an all-night so I should consider a day-option. So yea, if you can’t, we will have the day option too. So TWO Propel Groups kicking off at once.
I don’t want us to have stuff that would stop us from joining in.
I also didn’t get a mail from any full time stay-at-home mama. Oh please Darling, Propel soooo recognizes you and your Leadership potential within the home. My Propel story started from being where you are. And a lot of what propel taught me that got me results is what I am sharing in this video MY TOP TEN TIPS FOR THE STAY-AT-HOME MAMA

Then also I got permission to share the curriculum with Chicks in my group (Gosh I LOVE Propel and how they just want to see every woman propelled into her full potential, and are not about the money. I have to be the most disturbing person who emails them, but they are gracious) so if money is an issue to buy yours, we can share mine (Now, if money is NOT your problem, you are so buying yours. It is just 20dollars). Plus the idea of sowing where you can into such a FRUITFUL ministry should make you happy. We will just be filling the gaps for our sisters.
So I hope this Post has answered some of the questions that came up from my first post.
And yay, I have Chick who wants to start PROPEL in Enugu so where are my Enugu readers, or readers who have female friends in Enugu, holler!!!
Ditto ABUJA!!! And every where in naija.
Super EXCITED!!!
Email again is propel@eziaha.com
And hey, if you have any Chick in your office who you think should join, holler too.
The PROPEL message is one that needs to go round…
Yaaaas!!!
Blessed week guys!!!

Love,
E’
#PropelWoman

PS
Ok a lot of people have asked me if they can share my book. YES YES YES!!! You can so share, I stated that in the opening pages. You can ask them to email me to get a copy but if that is not an option, then share with them too. If you can cop their email addy, that would also welcome by me. But by all means, lavishly share!!! Thanks guys for all the support. Email ebook@eziaha.com for your copy. If this was on Amazon, we would have a spot on NY Times Best seller by now.
The.Lord.Is.Good.
Ps

This tweet came in from Propel as i blogged 

Aka CUT back…cradle not juggle

 kai

A LOT of NEWsss…New Name, New Vlog, NEW BOOK!!!

Hey guys,
Oh, my world has been buzzing, spinning, opening up, stretching and just generally BUSY…

My Inspiration!!! #LoveHerTotally

And BUSY is a term I am reclaiming and redefining because it has been getting a lot of bad rap out there.

When we say busy on this lane (yes, we. I am including you in my redefinition), we mean we are moving gracefully from one fruitful activity to another.
In the Good news version, Proverbs 31:27 actually says ‘She is ALWAYS BUSY…’
VS 13 says She keeps herself BUSY…
So yes to BUSY… fruitfully BUSY!!!
Amen!!!
But if you are fruitlessly busy, please sit down and re-assess stuff aii?
Ok so heyyyyyyy, I AM NOW AN AUTHOR!!!

Can yawl believe it?

And can you imagine, I get to release the Book on the same day, exactly a year after my journey began. It was on the night of Thursday, September 3 2015 that I gave my baby, KingDaveed, to Ebube my niece to mind, picked up a skipping rope, locked myself in the room, and with raw anger and fierce determination, and skipped my first 500 skips. #Memories
I always thought writing a book was wayyyyyy off for me. I mean, I know I write and all, and frankly this writing thing is God’s gift to me, but I always felt too unserious to write a Book jare.

Writing is for serious people na…

So when I started feeling like God told me to share my weight loss story, as much as I could, in a book, I thought HUH???

Blog and Book no be the same thing ooo.

But I decided to humor Him.

I recall just whipping out my laptop to start, and frankly I think Jesus took it from there, and wrote this Book Himself.

Ah!!!

Because I edited it myself, and every time I read through, I didn’t feel like I wrote it.
It was TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!
How did I write this? WOW!!!
Ok, anyways, I am so thankful this Book project is out.

The Book writing creative process is BEAUTIFUL I tell you. Nothing like watching your book assume life right before you.

I don’t voice this often but allow me to say this…
I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!!

Yaaaaas girl!!!

Turning 30 has been ANOTHER LEVEL.

Let me just address some of the biggest question those closest to me have asked me as per the Book…


– WHY IS IT FREE???

Infact, I recall a friend say

‘…Did you ask God? What did He say?’

To which I am thinking ‘Why so spiritual babe? Lol’

Love that my friends want me RICH!!!

Oh my Darlings, I would have happily put a cost to it, because
1.Like the Proverbs 31 woman, I KNOW the worth of my work (v.18)
2.MONEY helps this our Christian walk and work ooo.


Nobody poverty epp.

But yes, God told me to make it free.

And as I went through the post-writing process, I kinda got why.

This Book had to be free.
Don’t worry, I have 2 more writing projects coming out in the next two months, and maybe one more by the end of the year AND NONE WILL BE FREE.

– Another question, WHY AN E-BOOK?

Again, God.

Lol. I recall picking up the phone to ring Grace Springs Publishers for a meeting. and God says…


‘I told you we are doing e-books for now, so relax…’

E’ is about to make e-books VERY POPULAR in Nigeria.


Lirru me, BIG GOD!!!

Never used to be a fan of e-books but mehn, I have never been more thankful for them.

The convenience, and oh-my-gosh THE AVAILABILITY!!!

Like all my favourite Authors dropped baaaaaaaad books this year and honey, if not for the e-book option, I for no see am read. Because it can take like 1year to reach Naija and by that time, all the anointing wey dey the Book don finish. Lol

But me I just sharpaly order or pre-order the e-version and before anybody says ‘fiam’, I ‘m done with the Book…


Intentional parenting, Without Rival, Unstoppable, Undaunted, Unashamed, Intentional living, Overload, Seize the day, Millionaire messenger, Sisterhood, The Mother God made me, etc.

All e-books I have copped THIS YEAR ALONE from my fave American and Aussie Chicks…

And some of them I ordered the Hard copy ooo, but they are still sitting pretty in the US meanwhile I have copped the e-version and I am done, or almost done. I am thankful my Rev introduced me to them…

TFS Academy Book club is currently reading Joyce Meyer’s SEIZE THE DAY and guess what? The Book has not even been released yet. But I have my ways…

And we should be done about the time of release, just before LOVE LIFE Conference.

And Thank God for e-books, cos ‘my way’ only has e-book pre-order.
So I am happy to do an e-book first!!!

I already know my FIRST TWO hardcover books and I truly can’t wait for them NEXT YEAR!!!

This my writing ehn, tz like my Jesus took it to another level once I turned 30. I feel such a fire to deliver writing projects.

Stick with me guys!!! Through hardcovers, e-books and audio books (which I will record as soon as I sit under Adichie for 36hours lol)

Btw, anyone know any good e-book publisher in Naija? Those who can get my book on the top e-book portals worldwide ooo? Holler please. And I also need a very good App developer. The number of Reader Apps on my phone ehn, because each Publisher lets you read only via their App.

They don’t have two heads so let’s make ours too. If they are a growing business, all the better. I am all about SUPPORT GROWING BUSINESSES.

So please guys, recommendations for App developers and e-book or any book publishers, because most do e-books too.

Ok back to my Book.

Gosh!!! Writing this Book was just GRACE!!! TY Bello talks about how easy her latest song IT IS WELL (would rather call it that lol) came to her, and I know what it means for God to grace someone to do something, versus just jumping to do what God didn’t send ya.

It was easy but of course, the devil had to show.
I LOST A LARGE PART OF THE MANUSCRIPT and I didn’t save it anywhere!!!

And I was practically done writing.

I couldn’t believe it.

I just had to leave the Book for a while. Oh,but when I came back to it, I decided I would make it even better.

And I did.

Oh this latter one is even more delicious!!!

We need to teach the devil NOT to mess with us.

We are NOT of them that roll over and play dead or actually DIE…


WE CLAP BACK HARD!!!

Oh then let’s talk Book cover.

I have been in and out of the studio more than I care just to get a picture that works.

We have back and forth’ed various designs.

I had settled for this, until I showed my bestie Dumebi, and she just said…


‘No, this is NOT your BEST picture or look…’

I am so thankful for this particular one we agreed on.

Truth be told, I would have preferred to stand so my full frame would show, but all the standing ones didn’t work.
Plus like my bestie said, this picture makes me look prim and proper.
Hahaha
I am definitely receiving that, because that’s a secret desire of mine.

To look serious, prim and proper, AMEN!!!
Anyways, after plenty back and forth with various graphic designers, we settled on this

The Lord is good guys.
*drops mic*

Plus i LOVE Rev’s quote…

I celebrate the DISCIPLINE that led to this TRANSFORMATION… Albert Oduwole.

Love Him totally plus you can be sure He is reviewing EVERY BOOK I ever write…

Now let’s talk about the Name…
I started with ‘MY FAB WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY’ then moved to MY FAB WEIGHT LOSS STORY’ and then ended with ‘MY FAB TRANSFORMATION STORY’
In the video and in the Book, I explain why I call it a TRANSFORMATION instead of WEIGHT LOSS.
It wasn’t just a 30kg weight loss guys, it was a TOTAL TRANSFORMATION of my life.

Who would have thunk it?

Follow God. He is a BOSS!!!
*drops Mic*

Support my ministry.

And you can DOWNLOAD the first two Chapters here if you can’t wait. Lol

My FAB TRANSFORMATION Story (Intro and Chapter 1)
Enjoy my launch video Darlings.

I do a mini book reading too. It will make Chimamanda cringe but hey… we will get there. (Slightly obsessed with her book reading GRACE)

I am so thankful for this Book and I know it will be read around the world.

It is such a BEAUTIFUL read, you won’t be able to put it down.

I know that it will encourage more women to get started on transforming their lives in the way they need to, and this is even beyond weight loss. In whatever area your life needs a transformation, just go ahead and do it, because YOU CAN.
Change is HARD yup, but it ain’t impossible!!!
So cheers to embracing your own stretch and changing, one baby or giant step after the other…

Speaking of change, I also changed the name of my business from Saved Fit n FAB to E’SQUAD and then made Saved.Fit.FAB the Rider.

I recall praying and praying and praying when I felt a need to change just before I started the July Promo ladies and somehow, as I created the July group, I named it JULY SQUAD. I didn’t even know how and why I did, but that’s how the name came ooo. I just added the E’ yawl know how we love our E’ please.
E’SQUAD is a movement going global, which is why I am holding the globe.

Actually, not just E’Squad, but Eziaha herself.
I want to say I have big dreams but let’s rephrase to God has big dreams and I, like DAVID in Psalm 119:32, am praying ‘Lord, enlarge my heart to receive all that You are dropping in
Phew… and Amen!!!
So I have also changed my Twitter and Instagram handle to @CoachESquad. Wanted to leave it at @eSquad and for some reason, I believed God had kept that name for me lol. Infact, I made my business cards with that name. Only for me to want to change it and realize that the name is not available… hahaha.
@CoachESquad ain’t bad, thank God
Then I also started a Facebook Page and then rebranded the YouTube Channel.
Both called the University of CoachE’ and I am so excited about that name. Because we will be doing a TON of education.

I want it to be that Page or Channel you come to and learn a whole lot about all things Food and Fitness.

I have big dreams especially for it and YouTube, (please click link and subscribe) where I can just pop in and share short 2minute videos on some byte-size information, especially because people ask me a lot of stuff that a short YouTube video can answer. 

Which is why Jesus needs to provide this Samsung S7 Edge phone because, I can’t be entering studio every time, but I also want great quality videos which my current phone won’t always give me.

So that’s almost all our NEWssss from CoachE’
New Book: My FAB Transformation Story
New name: E’Squad…Saved.Fit.FAB
New YouTube: The University of CoachE’
New Facebook Channel: The University of CoachE’
IG/Twitter: @CoachESquad

And well, there is another NEW, this time not related to Food&Fitness, but my FAB Vlog, my Blog’s video sister. So we would call that THE FAB SISTER’S VLOG

Not sure the frequency and direction it would take on the long run, but for now, the first 3 videos I have leaned more to the stay-at-home mama aka SuperHouse wife aka Domestic queen, and then the mom/wife in a long distance marriage. But I certainly know that I would be talking about as much stuff as I blog about, basically how we live a FAB Christian life, and in that process, have fun, kick devil butt and make Jesus red-carpet world wide FAMOUS!!!
Oh, I know the direction my vlog will take. Scrap that statement written above. Haha. I would also feature interviews with #PropelWomen who are ROCKING this Christian life. I look forward to sitting down with TY BELLO mehn.

And then Heather Lindsey.
Plus I would have QnA sessions so if you have anything you want me to talk about in some detail, feel free to do me a mail Eziaha@eziaha.com.

I am sure I would totally love vlogging because I LOVE to talk and I love the Camera. And I absolutely LOVE Jesus so it has to be fun ON ANOTHER LEVEL DOING STUFF I LOVE WITH THE One I love!!!
You know the funny thing, about a gazillion people have asked me to start vlogging in the past and I always knew the time was wrong. Vlogging had become a fad and they thought I needed to jump on in too. It is sooo important to be led by God sha. I always said NO. But now, nobody even told me, I just know the time is right, and I have jumped right in.
And no, incase you are wondering, I totally will NOT stop writing. At all, at all.
The Channel name again is THE FAB Sister’s V-logs and if you click here, you can subscribe,
So here we go with my very first video…
My Top Ten Tips for the Domestic Queen (Part 1)

Let me not talk too much about it, just watch it. I am a #SuperHousewife myself, so I speak from a very personal place, the stuff that I apply to my life. No theories here. All practical. Feel free to share, and hey even if you are no Domestic Queen, trust me, you would pick many somethings from it.
The Part 2 will come up next week.
Ok that’s it for now.
Nothing like following Jesus guys. Nothing like total surrender to Him and letting Him do what He wants to do, IN YOU FIRST, and then through You.
Chase after Him guys, hard and fast!!! He is absolutely totally worth the chase…
With so much LOVE
E’
Fruitful.And.Busy lol
PS

PLEASE if you e-mailed me about Propel Lagos, i will revert Next week. No vex!!!

Gosh i don’t even have words to explain how PUMPED I am abourrit…

Propel is truly what Lisa writes about in Chapter 6 of WithoutRival. I just jumped up and started speaking in tongues as i read Chapter 6…

Women, let’s get educated.

A 31 day Devotional for the FAB.Warrior.Mom (PDF Download)

Hiiiiiii guyssssssss….

I have never been more excited doing any Project than I was this.

red

Plus one of the nods I got from heaven (aside a knowing in my Spirit of course) was the GRACE to do short posts.

Yawl know we do Posts in thousands of words on this lane but this devotional has 100 words and below for each day. Like I would write and write and when I check the Word Count, it would be 98 words.

AWESOME!!! Grace was at work mehn…

I did this in the middle of a crazy schedule but I was just strong through it all. I LOVED doing this.

L O V E D!!!

Emailed hubs after I was done and his feedback was gushingly positive.

#ProudWife #GoingForTheWOW

I hope you not only download BUT you honor God by setting time out to PRAY after you read it.

I also hope you share this with every woman you know because EVERY woman is actually a MOM.

Maybe a bit biased but this DEVOTIONAL is EVERYTHING!!! I wrote the kinda devotional I would LOVE to use. It is soooo fun to read while passing across the Message. No pressures. No trying to impress. No big English or high-faluting words. Just an absolutely delicious and nutritious FUN read.

I also can’t wait to dig in. Starting right from May 1 and when the month is over, we start again from Day 1.

And hey, you may wanna hook or team up with a couple of friends and enjoy it together so that way, yawl can be accountable. Read, discus it, dig up related scriptures, discus some more and then PRAY!!!!!!!!!!!

I HOPE YOU CATCH THE FIRE!! Gosh, I wanna see more women ON FIRE for Jesus. I wanna see more women terrorising the devil.

Shout out to Frances of Imperfectly Perfect blog for her help in making the download possible and thanks to my babies Derin and Teniola who are my major PUMP FACTORS!!! And Ngozi and Stephanie for all the help with CANVA too.

And of course, my absolutely absolutely amazing hubs. His feedback and love for it just made me so happy. He is the only one who saw it in full before now and he said he was particularly blessed by the meaning I gave to and how I applied the Scriptures in very relatable ways. And the absolute delight of my life, my FIRSTBORN SON, KingDaveed.

Gosh I think the picture is PERFECT!!!

I would look forward to your thoughts too when you read. Lemme know what you think and your constructive reviews too.

Now I am looking forward to writing my first Book. If God really sends you, He graces you and the journey is wayyyyyy easier. But first, I can’t wait to dig into this Devotional starting TODAY, May 1.

PPPS

I am thinking of doing a video on this devotional. Just sharing how I wrote it and maybe some stories behind the scenes plus the ones that didn’t make the cut. Maybe that’s how I will enter the vlogging lane. What do Yawl think?

#PropheticMotherhood…What Nneka Kyari said.

We have read what DDK said and What Pst Dotun Arifalo said from #PropheticMotherhood

And we end the #PropheticMotherhood with what the very beautiful Nneka Kyari said.

img_20160418_012301.png

First, let me give a background of Nneka!!!

She actually lives in Bonny island so even before the program, when I told Aku’m who was coming, he said he knows her and that she’s launching her book in Bonny that weekend or so.

Nneka Kyari authored ‘Breaking through the haze…how I overcame infertility.’

41veu5bik7l._sl1500_.jpg

Two things made me sorta underrate the import of her session personally… and it feels good to know I was NOT alone lol

IMG_20160420_164838

First thing, I don’t have that problem but I thought I will just listen on behalf of, and then buy the book for someone. I frankly didn’t think she would touch me like that but I had an open spirit for anything.

Secondly, when you hear someone authored a book like this, I dunno about you but first thing I’m thinking is she must have been believing God for a looooooooooong time, maybe 8 to 15years with plenty stories and a HUGE testimony.

When I heard she waited four years, I’m like ‘…oooooooooooooo k……..‘. Then she dropped a line that just sounded like a bomb in my spirit

But before then, lemme back up a bit so we really catch the gist.

So Nneka is well aware she has an infertility problem.

img_20160418_012312.png

Oh btw, she talks about FRUITFULNESS being beyond just children and she had a beautiful Rhema she shared from Genesis 1:28 and because BE FRUITFUL is such a theme in my life, I caught it.

Ok so the devil has brought a battle right to her dormot.

Infertility.

Having battled with it a while, home and abroad, she gets tired and decides to do something about it and so enter

THE POWER OF FOCUS

Not everytime, multi-task. Juggle. Etc. Recall what Priscilla Shirer said about BALANCE here

Nneka knew that split-focus in this matter would not give her the results she so desired. And so as led by God, SHE RESIGNED HER JOB to give this battle the right attention.

TO F O C U S

And this quote she gave right here hit all the right notes in my spirit.

‘…most goals in life do NOT have to take FOREVER. if I didn’t focus and give this battle the RIGHT attention, I may have still been waiting till today…’

Bet you’ve never heard a sermon like that. That Rhema hit home in that room.

That’s like turning something on its head.

‘…No, no, I’m not here to tell you how I waited 15years. I’m here to tell you how I would have waited maybe 15years but I fought and cut my journey to 4years and this is how you can cut yours short too…’

I’m all for Holy Spirit inspired shortcuts with wisdom. No glory in sufferhead. When a battle comes to your dormot, Focus!!! Deal with it. Win. And then move on once and for all.

Oh but Nneka didnt quite understand what God meant when He told her to focus, because now jobless, she filled herself with SOOOOOOOOOO MANY church activities!!!

Enter Christine Caine who by the way is a CHURCH GIRL through and through.

Numerous Christian ACTIVITY does not compensate for an AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIP with God…CC

Kyari said ‘…being active in church does not auto equal a stronger relationship with God…’

Head of Sunday school, Committee member of dis n dat, Secretary, women’s miseries ministeries, etc. Then she also started her own business.

Still no focus. Just too much activity. Then God gave herLuke 10:38 Only ONE thing is necessary…

Give attention to your relationship with God. He is looking for INTIMACY and it is in that place of intimacy that she would get the required strategies to battle infertility.

Then she got serious and cut down sooooo many unnecessary activities. There’s only so much one can do per time if one is going to enjoy intimacy with God.

Then God started to download. I love how she shared it systematically with us in such a short time.

Number one: GUARD YOUR HEART. She needed a PURE heart. It is only on the platform of a pure heart that God does the miraculous. Holiness is very key in receiving the password of your life. She used the story of Jesus who even when He was persecuted, He forgave and kept His heart clean and then He could do the IMPOSSIBLE… Rise from the dead.

From a pure heart, you can hear God speak to you.

I ABSOLUTELY UNDERSTAND THIS THING.

You know, I am working on something HUGE and as I prayed and basically sought God concerning directions, I felt Him say I/we should start with a HOLINESS study and I’m like HUH? But clearly, He let me know that He needs us to be HOLY first before He can start to show Himself. Which was where the Post Open Heart Surgery came from. I felt like Nneka read that post lol

Then from that foundation, God began to give her more directions on what to do and LEARN the DISCIPLINE OF DOING which was her NUMBER TWO.

Don’t wish for a result, DO!!! You can’t even pray and confess without DOING.

She had to be disciplined enough to DO

She had to start feeding her body with the RIGHT DIET. She made her meals herself. Plenty veggies and she had to make sure she cooked them well enough to preserve the nutrients.

She started exercising too.

See why you need our services at #SavedFitnFAB ?

Bedtime

**wink**

I mean, she had to be DISCIPLINED ENOUGH, sacrifice a LOT and just DO!!!

Honey, guess who got her results in THREE MONTHS???

Yup, Nneka.

She got pregnant and she gave birth to TWINS!!!

Reminds me of Dr Ada’s testimony, the Ebola survivor. She was disciplined enough to do what she had to do in addition to her faith. Very very disciplined. And she also got her results.

Won’t you rather FOCUS, be disciplined enough to do what God has asked you to do, win the battle and then MOVE ON??? Do you want to stay at the same battle ground fighting the same battle FOREVER? All this split focus can NOT help anybody ooo, especially NOT you. Or me!!! It takes FOCUS to achieve RESULTS. Which is exactly what she said she told a friend who has a ‘special needs’ child.

Very demanding and stressful taking care of the child, especially the diet so she is not consistent and so the problem persists. She had to tell her that wouldn’t she rather focus on this problem, be disciplined enough to do whatever it entails, get the victory and finally move on???

This makes all the sense abeg. This is not even about infertility alone, it is a lesson for LIFE because there is always something to fight for/against.

I loved the wisdom in this which is why I tweeted that she basically liberated me from a battle I would not have to face which is WASTING TIME ON BATTLES we can easily focus on and win. I’m like pumped to take on battles with the FOCUS it deserves so that we can get it under our belt and MOVE DA HECK ON!!!

I was so super blessed by Nneka. Such a communicator. She shared her story in details so that we KNOW what to do, as God leads you ooo not to ape her. Because really, God will not call every woman to resign her job but there is a required FOCUS and DISCIPLINE required for your won battle.

FIND IT

And because she began on the foundation of fruitfulness, she gave us some other tips to being fruitful.

  1. Listen to the Holy Spirit. Especially as a woman, You need to be sure, ON POINT with what God wants you to do and there is NO LIMIT to His knowledge so stay connected. And how? Via the WORD, Prayers, and other spiritual disciplines. That way, I can bortha CUSTOMISED password for my challenges. That means you can NOT be too busy. The lifestyle of an average Christian is TOO BUSY!!! You MUST make TIME to study. You can NOT be accidental and casual. You MUST be INTENTIONAL. Block out that time for God alone and INTROSPECT. That’s the only way to cut down your waiting time and errors.
  2. PLAN to be FRUITFUL: Plan your activities. Plan your day. Plan for your results. Have a schedule/routine. Count the cost, etc
  3. Measure FRUITFULNESS and NOT BUSYNESS. If GOD says STOP and LISTEN, I MUST OBEY. Let the Holy Spirit teach you to strike a good balance. She says when she has to put a stop for some time on one or two things to FOCUS on her home front, she does it without apologies. THE BEST thing I can give to my kids is ATTENTION until they come into the BEST God has for them. You can NOT and should NOT be too b usy for your kids. We have to put a stop to the MADNESS in our generation and it starts from the HOME.
  4. Where there is an issue or challenge to deal with, JUST DO IT!!! Do NOT pretend that all is fine. Don’t masquerade with activities. People see only your outside but what is really going on on your insides. DEAL WITH IT.

Phew!!!

Goodness!!! Don’t you just feel FRUITFUL reading all she had to say. The Book title doesn’t do it enough justice abeg. The matter is about infertility and then sooooo much more.

Let me just repeat this point which I thought was the BIGGEST!!!

‘…Most goals in life do NOT have to take FOREVER. If I didn’t focus and give this battle the RIGHT attention, I may have still been waiting till today…’

Nneka is ONE DEEEEEEEEEEP WOMAN. Plus she’s beautiful too. She is 10 YEARS in marriage this year and her twins are 5. A boy and a girl. Who knows maybe she would have still been waiting today if she didn’t strap herself in and FIGHT!!!

What battles have arrived at your dormot today? Do you want to stay fighting it FOR EVER? Me I certainly do NOT!!!

So, go sit before the LORD and download what He wants you to DO, then FOCUS on it, cut out unnecessary activities and be DISCIPLINED ENOUGH TO DO because RESULTS DO NOT COME BY ACCIDENT!!!

And that’s how we have come to the end of this beautiful series on Prophetic Motherhood.

IMG_20160420_161945

I have enjoyed writing it AND reading it too. I purposely did NOT listen to the CD again to write. I just transcribed from what I wrote down and then what my Spirit highlighted. If I listened to the CD, this would have gone on FOREVER lol because every point resonated. I wanted to FORGET some things on purpose LOL. Ehen, now I can go listen to the CD again and again and again. It is actually over 3hours long because practically the ENTIRE program- WORD, PRAYERS, CHARGE, ETC was recorded. Gosh I LOVE DEBORAH INITIATIVE FOR WOMEN!!! (DIW). That atmosphere of prayer, fellowship, and word was REAL!!!

Now, a LOT of people really want me to share the prayer points and scriptures used to pray there. I actually was going to do that until God told me to do ONE BETTER… let’s do our very own 30DAY DEVOTIONAL for the FAB WARRIOR MOMS.

Like, can you absolutely BELIEVE that????

I AM SO EXCITED!!!

I was actually going to do it for myself taking from the ones shared at WARRIOR IN HEELS (Mehn, there was this one on ‘My kids are ESTABLISHED in RIGHTEOUSNESS Pastor M led that gets me leaping every time), Prophetic Motherhood and then my Personal study , because I wanted some STRUCTURE AND STRATEGY to my prayer as a PROPHETIC WARRIOR MOM but I don’t mind sharing with yawl.

Don’t thank me, thank Christine Caine. Lol.

img-20160416-wa005.jpg

And about this hug, let’s give the short version. DDK hugged me what I thought was a FINALLY WE MEET hug and then starts praying. Let’s just make it even shorter by saying that despite all my ‘inner resistance’ Aunty’s anointing gets me to the floor.

IMG_20160420_161822

You would think Aunty would let me be ooo but after I get up, she continues the hug and prayers.

IMG_20160420_161840

Receiving quotient Hahaha

Some things are taught. Some things are CAUGHT!!! I KNOW that I caught something. I got home and all the crazy ideas started dropping in my spirit and I kicked off immediately… Neighborhood Stay at home moms prayer meetings, the devotional, and just plenty FIRE!!!

The last couple of days (after the meeting) have been a FIGHT. Don’t let me go into details haha. I just keep remembering Debola’s line of

‘…the thing that is confronting you is serious business. You may NOT be paying attention to it BUT it is paying attention to you…’

But the devil stays losing. NO TIME!!! I don’t even believe I did these posts back to back.

Please don’t come back tomorrow though for the devotional. I am already working on it and will present it in a format where you can download and share. Yaaaaay!!!

Let’s get this work done people. Let’s checkmate the devil.

Just RUN after everything God has called you to do.

images-6.jpeg

Don’t even waste time. Don’t second guess. Don’t let anyone talk you out of it. Just RUN!!! You have a part to play in this divine relay so STOP SLACKING or UNDERESTIMATING YOUR PART. I am so thankful mama pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and start #SavedFitnFAB. Just stepping out to do that has unleashed someone else.

Like Debola said, there is a line of EQUAL FREQUENCY in the Spirit connecting us to those with whom we MUST do destiny with.

IMG_20160420_161729

May you find your Prophets, guys. May you find your Elizabeths.

And may you be a PROPHETIC ‘MOTHER’ indeed!!!

Amen!!!

 

Love

Support.Growing.Businesses… Part 2

Hey guys. I am back.

image

Fine Warrior!!!

Feedback on Part 1 of this was awesome. 

Chrishill phones has to be the winner. Funny thing is I didn’t tell any of the three business owners I featured. I kinda forgot or didn’t care to. Whatever. Anyways dude rang me and was soooooooooo grateful. Gushfully grateful. 

He said A LOT of you got phones from him and kept saying ‘…from Eziaha‘. I’m happy for him. He’s a great and trustworthy guy, and I’m glad I could help. 

You guys are awesome. Thank you.

So, by way of repeating, if you need a phone from an absolutely great and honest dealer, holler at Chrishill. He delivers to anywhere in Nigeria and has from the affordable to the more high end phones. Original and warranty’d phones and Tablets and accessories. Even if you don’t need now, store his number for later or maybe if someone you know needs and asks you. 

Be sure to mention Eziaha. Both for an even better deal and also you might also be making sure I get my iPhone 6s or S7 from him either free or ridiculously cheap. 

#Notime

Chrishill : Otigba street Computer village, Ikeja Lagos. 08033085181

This month, let’s do three more.

Or Four.

Starting right with my big sister’s business 

1. Boarnerges Pharmacy and Stores

image

Located in the heart of Victoria Island, Right opposite Siverbird Galleria on Ahmadu Bello way, the state-of-the-art Boarnerges pharmacy caters to ALL your pharmaceutical and wellness needs.

image

Her Pharmacists and staff are so well trained and she purchases only originals, mostly from the manufacturers or dealers who buy straight from the manufacturers.

image

Never ever compromises quality. And you know you don’t want compromised health related stuff. 

image

She also stocks toiletries, cosmetics and stuff like that. They also conduct free BMI if you request on walk-in. 

image

Plus her POS actually always works. 

image

I know half of Lagos work on the island so please give them a call today to find out if they have what you need and pop in too at your lunch time or close of work. 

image

Peek my favorite tea Twinings and some yumyums too

And if you work in a hospital, suggest to your purchase team/hospital pharmacy to order from Boarneges especially BUT NOT LIMITED to those on the island. We could work out delivery for bulk purchase and/or select location. 

image

Phone number : 07046475180 014536563

Email: boanergespharmacy@yahoo.com

Address: Sleek Studio Square, opposite Silverbird cinemas, 141 Ahmadu Bello, VI. 

image

I have such a heart for growing businesses, and I believe God is calling me into that field and so I’m  kicking off a Social media strategy for growing businesses and Boarnerges is one of my first clients. She’s paying, just incase you wondered. You will meet more soon. I told yawl seasons changed right… Soooo excited haha. 

So Blog, Facebook, Twitter, the whole works. The most exciting social media campaign ever. I’ve done this for Emzor pharmaceuticals before and i’m certainly looking forward to going this road again this time as an ‘Apostle in the marketplace’. 

Btw, we need a sales assistant with an OND in accounting please. You also need to live ‘not too far away’. If you fit or know anyone who fits, please do me a mail eziaha@eziaha.com

Boarnerges is a name right from the Word. Meaning (son of) thunder. That’s cos we are blowing, exploding EVERYWHERE!!!

2. Emmanuel, Agent for househelps

I really enjoyed working with Emma. He is a believer and was hands down the best agent I dealt with. And I dealt with quite a FEW. He was sincere, honest, patient and wasn’t overly money conscious even though he of course is in business to make money. You must understand that most agents start singing the ‘money tune’ even before they have found your specifications. They give you the most ridiculous conditions that you almost wanna slap them. 

His fees and conditions were very reasonable too. And I was comfy with the background checks he does. He won’t lie and say ‘She’s from my village. She’s like my sister. She just came to Lagos 2days ago, etc ‘ as most agents usually lie. What he didn’t do and what he doesn’t know, he will say. No lying. He put all the cards on the table. 

Plus the girl I got from him has been awesome. I’m so thankful for her. Sooo thankful. So so thankful. Then he also calls me from time to time to know how the girl is doing. I mean, how’s that for ‘client care’?

Awesome!!!

Plus what the girl has to pay him back for his agency is really fair. The best I saw. He is not out to rip them off. And it is very important to me to do business with and empower people who are actually human and not greedy!!!

Now because I KNOW the peculiarity and sensitivity of home help matters, I won’t put up his number here. For my own safety too. And of course you know to be led by God. Not Eziaha. You do NOT have to use him. I am just putting a guide here. I trusted God for my help, I believed He would guide me as I prayed, took steps and called and interviewed a LOT until I met Emma and had peace about him and the girl he brought.

So do me a mail eziaha@eziaha.com and then I can give you his number so long as you understand that you are absolutely On Your Own. Thank you very much. 

I’m just helping. But with humans, (and homehelps) there can be risks and I wanna make sure I don’t get into trouble. 

Amen!!!

3. House of Pictures. 

He did my KingDaveed’s one year shoot.

image

I met him in the funniest of ways. I believe it was divine cos God opened my eyes to this random dude just strolling home with a camera on his neck. I had been trusting God for someone affordable to do a home shoot for me. Frankly I was getting exhausted and was going to just take KingDaveed to a studio and take a few shots, which I absolutely HATED!!! But even then, something in me still believed. I wanted a young, christian, patient guy who lived close to my home, and could pop in casually and get the job done. Not just someone who stays in the studio and all.

image

Someone who could go here and there and be creative and patient enough to shoot a baby well. 

I jumped right to him and started rattling (I’m crazy. I know). He must have been taken aback cos he asked me if I really loved pictures like that cos of all the questions I was asking. Long story short, he fit everything I wanted. Plus you don’t wanna know what I paid. It was ridiculous!!! 

Flat out r.i.d.i.c no matter how you look at it. 

Well, he just wanted to help me. Plus he lived in the next estate to mine. 

God took me out at that exact time and made him pass that route he doesn’t pass normally. God totally orchestrated our meet. Oh Jesus loves me. I got my dream photo shoot within my budget. 

image

He was absolutely patient with us all through the shoot. Didn’t complain ONCE!!! He had a cheerful spirit all through. And I was watching him ooo. 

You saw some of the pictures now and you know how long all of that would have taken with all our change of scenes and cloths.

image

Trust me, it was a LONG shoot with a LOT of pictures. 

And even when I had some issues with some of the final pictures, he was willing to oblige me despite the ridic amount I paid ooo. 

image

He specialises in street photography (documentary) but is definitely not limited to it. He shoots events too, birthdays, weddings and all. I proudly recommend him because even his normal rates are affordable. He’s good. And he’s a young guy trying to grow his business. He also does school excursion shots and all. He was on one when I met him. So let’s support growing businesses in Nigeria. 

And hey, if you wanna do a shoot and you need someone to direct it, as in you don’t have those cool ideas, you can holler at me too and I can come help you. At a fee of course. But I’m excited about pictures so tz passion first before money. Especially if it is a baby or a maternity or a pre-wedding shoot.

image

Been there, done that and my ideas are from heaven, trust me. Plus I am fun to have on set.

So again, holler at me and I’ll send you his number

4. Laterna Books. 

image

Oh definitely my NUMERO UNO to buy all my books and Bibles from in Nigeria. It is primarily a Christian bookstore but they also stock other healthy genres. They are based in Lagos but have an online store that delivers anywhere in Nigeria.

image

Ordered online...

I’ve used both and I promise you, customer service doesn’t get any better. Whether you walk into Oko-awo

image

One of my many walk-in buys

or you call to order, the staff are excellent. Gosh, even the delivery agents are excellent and polite. You can tell they pay attention to details. Customer service is almost dead in Nigeria so when you meet businesses that care, you stick to them. Been with Laterna for a really long time, at least 6years and I’ve recruited quite some fans too. Very very wide array of books. The ambience in Laterna is also refreshing. Your spirit just comes alive… Christian music in background, staff who actually KNOW what they have been put there for, and a very very organized structure and layout. Plus their POS actually works which is a BIG deal. They also have a well stocked children store and I usually pity my my friends who are moms and their ATMs when her kids enter there. Haha.

image

It is a kid’s heaven and haven. KingDaveed is definitely going to have shares there. No debate. Moms, epp your kids ehn…

Plus they have PLENTY journals. Yawl know I’m a hoarder collector, right? Almost all my journals have come from them. They also have so many cool stuff that will enrich your reading experience. And they have really cute christian memorabilia you could gift people. Keyrings, stickers, tee shirts, stone frames, etc. All branded with the Word of God. Jeez!!! Then they have Christian messages, movies and music. Original DVDs and CDs ooo.

Wooooh, this story is long. Just call or walk in, and thank me later (with Max Lucado’s study Bible please)

image

Laterna books, 12b/13 Oko awo street, off Adetokunbo Ademola, VI

Phone number 08033014462

Online store www.laternabooks.com

Trust me, you will be glad patronising them. 

So that’s it for Part two. 

Feel free to holler at me if you need a social media plan for your growing business. Or some kinda publicity. We can work something out within your budget.You see my ginger is high. Lol.  I am careful about clients I work with and endorse though. We need to be sure we are doing a wealth transfer INTO the Kingdom of God through His children. Amen!!!

Group hug!!!

God loves yawl like crazy…

image

First time in like 5months lol

E’
.

PS
Hoping to throw in a post later today or tomorrow. If I saw it before I did KingDaveed’s first birthday post, I would have thrown it in. But hey, this works too. So watch out yawl, especially moms and moms to be. It’s awesome
