The P413 POW WOW with E’ (1.0)

Whooooop-de-deooooo!!!

Like God is just so super amazing

The POW WOW with E’ is finally a reality.

Ok so before I get carried away by my own fizz, a few FAQs likely to surface…

 

  1. What is a POW-WOW?

It is a meeting for discussion, especially among friends or colleagues.

I JUST LOOOOOVE this name. The pronunciation is even amazing. It is pronounced as upbeat as it is spelt. Google sound?

I especially love the rich history of the name…

Pow-Wow time is Aboriginal Peoples getting together to join in dancing, visiting, renewing, sleeping-over, renewing old friendships and making new ones. This is a time to renew thoughts of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage.

Dang!!! Like, Why so spot on dear Holy Spirit?

  1. So what is POW WOW with E’?

This is really a fun time out with me and 20 ladies, where I just download secrets and principles from my life that continue to work for me. 

See ehn, my life is working ooo. I TELL YA. 

30 z EVERYTHING!!! Jesus is in 30… (At least until i turn 31)

My marriage is werking (I just miss my hubs so much), my mama-hood is working (I can’t even believe how much of an amazing mama I am), my biz is thriving 

(Had almost 150 Squaddies register for my October Squad, plus God keeps opening doors), my Spiritual life is woooooorking, I am building GREAT relationships both upward/downward vertical and then horizontal relationships, 

UPSTREAM day 1 with Olufunto…

and many more. 

BEST part? I am running this race WITH JOY!!! Like the GRACE is incredible.  If I knew anyone like E’, I would camp with her, honezzly. Lol. So when God gave me the POW WOW with E’ instruction, I just said YES SIR!!! Cos I am literally bursting to impact wisdom and put some fire and pump in you to RUN!!!!

Now, yup I felt fear at first, like ‘Who will come? Who are you? Who knows you?’ but when God drops som’in in your spirit, it is NOT an idea, IT IS AN INSTRUCTION and the perfect response is YES SAH!!!

Plus have you met my Teachers?

Joyce Meyer, Christine Caine, Lisa Bevere, Pastor Mildred, DDK, Heather Lindsey?

I don’t have time or permission to be afraid.

Oh i will also share on the power of mentoring and accountability in very personal ways.

POW-WOW with E’ will hold monthly and will have a different theme each month as the Spirit leads. The first is P413 which is Phil 4:13.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

It is one of my FAVE SCRIPTURES and so with this, I will share the strategies to doing MY ALL THINGS and living my life to the max.

I already know I will have a P31, G128, C127 and so on POW WOWs with E’ in the future.

 

  1. Who should attend?

Any Chick who just knows that there is MORE to her but is in some kinda fuzz/blur about how to deliver that MORE, or maybe is afraid or lacking confidence, and so needs some hand-holding and mentoring. I am happy to be your ‘Midwife’. I would really especially LOVE for the younger adults to come, say 20’s to 23’s, fresh graduates, corpers, job seekers, stay at home moms, etc. But hey, any Chick can turn up sha. Just have a desire in your heart, and a ‘baby’ in your womb, and let God lead you.

 

  1. What’s on the day’s program?

I, for one will be speaking OF COURSE, and then my absolutely amazing ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER. 

Aijay.

I love that God led me to have her share with these Chicks because NO ONE PERSON this year has pushed me to succeed like Aijay. The crazy thing is Aijay is a banker and has a FULL career life BUT does not let it stop her life plans and visions. 

Plus she is a wife and mom and lives such an organized fruitful life because she is a GREAT TIME MANAGER!!! 

Dang!!! She excels at her job, her home and her LIFE generally and she has such a passion that I can’t even wait to hear her.

I have another friend, one of my besties, but Jesus knows if she will be in Nigeria then. Lol.

The Holy Spirit carries her to places like right now, she is on Missions in Mozambique lol. Or is it Malaysia. This year alone, she has done AUSTRALIA, USA, ZANZIBAR, UK and now Mozambique/Malaysia (Well, I was too stunned at her guts that I only know the place starts with M and she last emailed me at her layover in Kenya) She is the only single Chick I know who rocks her single life fully!!! Like she is just on FIRE FOR Jesus and makes me STAY ON FIRE TOO.

We look alike abi?

You need to hear her drop the Word!!! Dang!!! She is my mentor walahi. When life hits hard, i ring Ogochukwu. 

If she is in Nigeria, she will be there too. She will come from an angle E’ cannot come from. And oh, she has a ‘regular’ job too.

And then we will have a QnA session which will be the longest session, so that every Chick can truly have customized answers to her questions.

As God leads us, we will have new friendships formed and then pairing of accountability partners too.

Recall that the aboriginal PowWows’ also promoted making new friendships, not just casual, but PURPOSEFUL ones. I already sense in my spirit that deep covenant friendships will be formed there.

Whooooosh!!!

If you have an accountability partner, or a good friend with whom you wanna redefine your friendship to be more purposeful, it will be good to register together. No time for time wasting friendships ooo!!!

OH we would also have LUNCH and a Photo shoot session. Lunch will be healthy so don’t be looking for fried rice and chicken and ‘mineral’. Eat that at home. Lol. It is a 5hour session at least so I can’t starve yawl…

And of course a photo shoot!!! Yawl know I LOOOOOVE pictures so we will have those IG props and all. And since it is a week to Christmas, come with Christmas caps and stuff too. Like this POW WOW is gon’ be LIT!!! And you will literally be set on fire for Jesus and His assignment for your life.

The timing is perfect too. Christmas period can be super distracting but any wise Chick would not lose sight of the fact that a new year is upon us too, and so will take time off the distractions and be INTENTIONAL about 2017.

Today in my prayer place, God downloaded 17things I would do in 2017 and I have such a strong sense of purpose that I am running yo!!! The other perfect thing about the timing is that I will be fresh off two seminars in December.

One with Tara where Ibukun Awosika will be present AND then DO IT AFRAID seminar with Omilola Oshikoya and many more speakers.

I am paying for both seminars (Tara’s is closed though but i lobbied lol. But Omi’s is open and 20k) 

and then I will bring all that knowledge too (plus the incredibz wisdom I picked up from UPSTREAM) to Pow Wow with E’. 

UPSTREAM with DDK and FUNTO

How crazy is that? I can’t even wait.
I would also create a closed Facebook group and we can continue to communicate for some months after this.

Beyond all the asides though, the koko is our discussions and QnA’s. I can’t wait to see what God will do in and through us.

Oh and we will pray!!! Oh we will pray too. Birthing prayers!!!

The absolute highlight of all my POW WOWs with E’ will ALWAYS be BIRTHING PRAYERS!!!

 

  1. OH I WOULD LOVE TO COME BUT I can’t afford it.

Ok you know I have an Academy right? An online Mentoring Academy. THE FAB SISTERSHIP ACADEMY!!! Feel free to apply for the next class starting in January of 2017. Of which I am re-branding it to take just 6 people for 6weeks. That one is free but the entry requirements will be TIGHT!!! Cos some mentees are just jokers and I can’t afford jokers anymore.

But this POW WOW with E’ is not free. And frankly I am sure the Lord will lead me to increase the cost in the coming months.

However, I have friends who wanna sponsor a total of 3 people BUT I don’t want any Chick to come for free. Nah, that’s now in my POW WOW with E’ vision. So I will split that to 6 Chicks who get to pay half the fee, that is N2500

So the first 6 people who truly can’t afford it, just send me a bio of yourself and I will let you know if you qualify.

Otherwise, it will cost just N5000, of which, if I have more friends or readers who want to sponsor, holler. Thanks.  Especially those who live outside Lagos. Will shut down when I get my 20 Chicks.

Oh and I need 3 volunteers, which is a good way to attend for free. You need to live in Lagos though, have some free time, and be able to stay till AFTER the end on that day, because there is some work you have to do. I know a lot of people will volunteer so sell yourself well in your email, and then let me know where you live in Lagos.

So everything POW WOW with E’ should be mailed to powwow@eziaha.com with the appropriate subject.

Date again is SUNDAY December 18, 2016 at 1pm. Come earlier though. We won’t do African time.

Btw how cool are these flyers? Finally got my graphics dude and he is a Christian. FOR THE WIN!!! 

Thanks Ngozi for hooking me up!!! He was so patient and must have done like 50 designs 

One of the spoils lol

and didn’t once complain. Plus he gave me many colors too.
When Aijay FINALLY said to me THIS ONE IS GOOOOD, I knew we had found IT lol. I just looooove Aijay. She has to be my biggest cheerleader and my biggest critic. Plus the Chicks in the Academy and then my Assistant also loved it. Plus I LOOOOOOVE it!!!

Ok so let the countdown begin. I pray if this is a meeting God wants you to attend, He places that desire in your heart and makes a way for you to attend. In Jesus name, amen!!!

Pow Wow with E’ 1.0… finally!!!

Don’t stop chasing after God though. He really is SOOOO WORTH IT!!!

Love,

Eziaha

 

PS

DISCIPLINED DIS DECEMBER class registration is still open. For some reason, diasporans are winning those in Nigeria. Maybe it is a sign I need to relocate to the US or UK lol.

Details are here. Plus the #SquatForYourButts class too. And then the Tees and all. I will do a shoot with all the Tees I have available for sale soon. 

December is looking good!!! But 2017 is looking even better. God bless Pastor M and DDK for me.

 No better mentors sha!!!

 

PPS

So my latest Devotionals will drop in December.

This look is for the one I have titled

The 30-31-30 Devotional for FAB.SWORDED.CHICKS

Aijay said even the name alone is expensive. Lol

I will give more details on the name especially later, but it will be available to download ONLY via my App, The FAB E’Reader

and will cost N1500. 

It is a 91 day devotional that will put a SWORD in every Chick’s hand to FINISH the enemy. I mean TOTALLY OBLITERATE satan. My App will be free to download for the first month so when I go live, please download and share. But even when it is Premium, it will be a token. These Apps don’t cost 2naira to build. Lol.

Can u tell i am sitting ON TOP a jeep? Not bonnet oo lol

This look ehn, it is EVERYTHING I had in mind. I wanted to look FIERCE and BEAUTIFUL still. The red hair, nails and lips, the silver cross and white outfit and toned arms, and the blue sword and eye makeup? EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!! It was a FULL VILLAGE and Pastor Mildred was the Chief lol. We have not yet settled for any for the pix for the Cover design but I think this below will make the back cover.

Let me just be lip sealing on the second Devotional. Let us just say it features My Pink dumb bell and Pink Joyce Meyer Bible. 

Anyone hazard a guess? Loooool.

And for both devotionals, I have the most amazing people featuring as Guest writers. Will unveil later.

And when these two go LIVE this year, guess whose FIRST Book will be ready for the first Quarter of January? 

Yup, E’ !!! 

Of course we will have e-copies too in addition to Print. I have the name of my first Book and so do a few friends lol. And my hubby of course. I am NOT sure why God thinks I can write it but let’s see what He will do through me.

I looooove to write even though it is not easy but I believe I am graced for it. So let’s continue writing for Jesus!!!

Ok byeeeeee. I talk way too much.

#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

E’

 

PS

How are we warming up for Love Life?

Enjoy

 

 

 

#PropheticMotherhood… What Pst Dotun Arifalo said

 



There’s a Part 1 here
#PropheticMotherhood… What DDK said
This series builds up so start from there aii?
Pastor Dotun Arifalo is the ‘Father’ over the ministry, Deborah Initiative for Women. She basically got me born again all over AGAIN!!!

img_20160418_020055.png

I didn’t believe all that was coming out of that woman!!!
Gosh!!!
Let’s just jump in…
Every woman is a PROPHET!!! The prophetic anointing is on me as a woman so it means there is limitless power in my WORDS!!!

Hello all the women/mamas jumping from prophet to prophet to ‘see’ for them. You are a PROPHET hun!!! Beyond speaking LIFE into my children, I can speak life into my husband, into his dreams, into my ideas, into my business, etc. I use my words to create/birth what I sense in my heart and because my words are anointed, I have to be very careful what I speak. I can speak life or I can speak death. I can be a wife or a knife!!!

Being a woman is an OFFICE!!! It is an ORDINATION!!! I can stand in that office and declare things and heaven MUST answer.
I can give life to things beyond children and the entire power lies in my words.
As a woman, I am both a King maker (as I take those seeds in me and make kings of them) and a KING and kings declare so I have to make sure I ain’t using my mouth to talk nonsense or nag.
My words are very powerful.
She also took some time to speak to the Singles.
The greatest gift you can give yourself is the gift of the right man
Don’t go and hook up with someone who will make you start speaking nonsense words ooo.



As a prophetic mother, MOMMY MINISTRY is NOT your ONLY ministry. So as I raise my kids, I should NOT pack up my life permanently.

img_20160418_020043.png

And permit me to unpack this a bit with the Proverbs 31 woman as God explained it to me one morning.

She really was a SUPER WOMAN and as I follow God's will for me, I too can be SUPER

She really was a SUPER WOMAN and as I follow God’s will for me, I too can be SUPER

I was having this convo with God some 3weeks back about Full time stay-at-home mama’s. I actually believe I have an assignment for women in that category and my inbox confirms it (yawl keep writing me). I felt He was telling me that being a FT stay-at-home mom AND NOTHING ELSE is not exactly ALL that He wants for His women and so He got me to draw a line in my journal and open Proverbs 31 in various versions.
On one side, I filled in her jobs in the home and the other side, her jobs outside the home.
I then realised that indeed, that Chick excelled BOTH as a homemaker/domestic queen and a Career woman.
That day, I was CONVINCED that really ehn, your life MUST count for more than just you, your husband and your kids. Yes there are times when you may wanna FOCUS on your home (and i’ll dwell a bit on that with the 3rd speaker Nneka Kyari) but honey, as a woman, you have been called to MUCH MORE!!!

img_20160418_020043.png

As a woman, you can NOT afford to be weak!!! You birth what you are. It is in your genes, strength or weakness. A weak woman will birth weak children. A strong woman will birth strong children. Raising a child is like raising an ARMY!!! You have to be STRONG!!!
Ok, you need to go back and read that again!!!
Good Lord!!!

Woman, YOU BIRTH WHO YOU ARE!!!
There is a difference between a child growing up and a child being raised!!! Some children just grow up, some are RAISED!!! We need to be intentional and consciously RAISE our kids. You are a custodian of destiny. You can’t do it casually.

Aunty, it is advisable to wait some time after marriage to born ehn.

PLAN for ’em kids. Get enough emotional support. Be READY!!! You don’t have to jump from wife to mother immediately. Build your relationship with your husband first. Groom yourself for the journey. Build capacity before you bring forth. It is a HUGE job.
Remember, who you are is who you birth ooo.
Again, don’t pack up your life permanently to raise your kids. Beyond being known as Bolaji Olojo’s wife or ‘mama KingDaveed’ (and side eye to yawl who call me that), I need to be a mama of many other things beyond children ooo. There are ministries, business ideas, etc waiting to be birthed through me!!!
Today’s women WORK beyond housework ooo.
Dear woman, Get Help.

IMG_20160419_210603

Leverage on every opportunity you get/God has given. FOCUS on doing what only you can do and outsource what others can do for you. Cooking and cleaning and being spent from these activities such that you don’t even spend quality time pouring into your kids can’t help anybody ooo. You will just be frustrated and resentful and tired meanwhile the real job has not been done. And might I add that spending time on Telemundo and co because you have Help can NOT help anybody too. Raise up and call forth the LEADER in your kids.
Tz beyond cooking and cleaning.
And tz definitely beyond Telemundo and Zee world.
Quick question: if you do NOT cook personally, will the world come down? NO!!!
But will the world come down if you do NOT RAISE your kids? Pretty much YES!!! Your own world will come down.
Your kids ought to see you both as mom AND mentor/role model. Teach your kids to approach the world with a problem solving mentality.
Take your kids with you on spiritual journies. Let them see you pray, study the Word, and live for Jesus!!!

Eeeeeek Farida's comment on What DDK said is exactly what I could write

Eeeeeek
Farida’s comment on What DDK said is exactly what I could write

Let them learn how to pray from watching and hearing you. Not everytime Telemundo and Africa Magic or TRACE!!!

Stop joking dear woman!!! The devil you are not paying attention to is paying MAJOR attention to you.

(that’s from DDK anyways I dunno why I added it here but, HERE, you can have it)
Brainwash your kids with the Word from a young age.
Teach them values, life skills, marriage, relationships, etc.
Train them to discern so they don’t marry wrong. Let your marriage be THE blueprint for them. The stuff I put into my kids is the stuff they produce. Use the creative power of my words to frame it all together.
Keep laying hands on them.
Keep prophesying.
You, my darling are a Prophet!!!

Oh this next point chilled me, and then pumped me.

She said the reason some of us are not running to our parents a lot is that they are not mentor figures to us. We just grew up. We were not RAISED!!!
There’s nothing really to learn from them. (and that’s not a reason to not visit ooo). You mama, have to live your life in such a way that generations after you can NOT forget you. You know how the Bible says ‘…one generation shall tell the next of YOUR faithfulness…’ ehen. Let one generation tell the next generation that there was an Eziaha who no one can stop talking about.

Your impact down generations should neither be denied or erased.
You are a trailblazer, woman!!!
Be a TRAILBLAZER!!!

IMG_20160419_210551
Let your kids arise and call you BLESSED!!! Please give your ALL in raising your kids, and that involves birthing the other dreams God has given you. Do it for your generation. Any battle you do not win, you will transfer. Let some nonsense STOP in your lineage because of you and your prayers.

Amen!!!

Until you begin to do that, you are ORDINARY!!!

images.jpeg
Lemme just round up this post with this
Mama, you are LIMITLESS!!!
See ehn, raising kids is awesome. I actually believe it is my primary responsibility. Primary, but NOT only!!! You don’t wanna conquer ‘out there’ and fail as a mom.

You also don’t wanna be a WIFE and MOM and NOTHING else!!!

Lisa Bevere and Christine, on the platform of ‘Propel Women’ talk about the ‘Emerging woman’ a lot. God wants an emerging of a woman whose life is INTEGRATED. Whole!!! It is NOT an either-or, it is a BOTH thing. A woman who wants her life to count for something beyond her!!!

Something for the benefit of mankind!!! These women understand SEASONS in life.

images-2.jpeg

I talked about my seasons here too. I had my FT stay-at-home mama season and frankly, what God did for me then was building capacity!!! What I thought was a low-output season was a ‘root deepening’ season. And maybe a season of REST too like my bestie Valerie told me on Sunday when I told her I was tired and all. As a woman, you need to be UNSTUCK, be able to maximise each season and then MOVE gracefully from one season to the next as God leads you.

Unstuck!!! Easily my fave PropelWomen quote

Unstuck!!! Easily my fave PropelWomen quote

If all you are doing now screams ‘low productivity’, I promise you, with the help of the Holy Spirit, you can make that season work for you and prepare you for the next season. But if you let your life be encumbered with Africa Magic and Telemundo, you can NOT hear God.
See this Propel woman, Alli Worthington, she’s easily my favourite on the Panel.

dqw3xyehbauhy7cd7_hnqu2hrcvnzeohu84aaur1xl9exbtwzp0fjoqsbbity_tqgjbq2cxp2ayt85j6mdscq-9lcvqd2nfranibrsl_oxcdyhp2kr9zcokjp1gqcygafktmf8ffsq0oyr24hklbzfy5rmhnvww300-h262-nc.jpeg.jpeg

Years and years and years (over 10years) as a FT mom, raising 5 boys (she said her and her husband were just ‘enjoying themselves’ and wham!!! 5boys!!!) but today, she’s Exec Director at PropelWomen, Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur etc and she did NOT stop being a wife and mom as she took on these other responsibilities BUT instead being a stay-at-home MOM enriched her life in such a way that as that season morphed into another, she took lessons from there and is doing a MOST brilliant job in this season and inspiring loads of women around the world including ME!!!

img_20160418_020148.png
Like DDK said, children are a gift from God. They should ENHANCE and NOT hinder the call of God on your life!!!

img_20160418_020214.png
And still on DDK, let me quote something she said at Warrior in Heels…
There is something about a woman who takes EVERY season of her life as a GOD-ORDAINED season!!!
#Selah

One of you who came for Warrior in heels should transcribe na. Epp us. Haha. I’m still amazed by DDK. I’m reading one of her books THE SCRIPT and what it is doing to me is beyond Words.
Please don’t despise any season. God can work with anything if we give it to HIM!!! Like Alli said, take care of what’s in front of you right now faithfully. God has a plan!!! Follow it and not the world’s. He will take you into your next season soon enough.
Honey, you can do MORE than birthing kids. You can BIRTH much more!!!
And this is a good place to end ‘…what Pastor Dotun said…’
And the final speaker was Nneka Kyari!!!

img_20160418_020015.png

Soft spoken and yet deeeeeeepppp!!! A woman who took a season of her life by the lapels, fought the battle against infertility, won it, and morphed into another season and is liberating lots of other women!!!

41veu5bik7l._sl1500_.jpg
Eeeeeeeek!!! Nneka was my fave because she taught me something I will NEVER forget.
That post is READY too!!! Come back tomorrow!!!
Plus I have a BIG announcement at the end of Part 3.
Think… download, use for 30days, repeat, share… I can’t wait to birth that!!! Anybody wanna guess???
I’m excited!!!

img_20160418_015849.png
I’m running after everything God has called me to. Not holding back!!! And carrying as much people as I can with me.

#NoTime

See you soooooooooooon!!!
Love,
E’

#PropheticMotherhood… What DDK said

God has blown me away in recent times. I woke early Sunday morning and as I thought about the previous week and all that had happened to and with me, God used a Twitter scenario to drive it home…

IMG_20160419_041051

So I was having this convo with Kuchi and QYM on Twitter and I said #GroupHug as I ended the convo. Kachi, a friend from Uni who runs this AWESOME blog http://www.kacheetee.com had sort of been entering my lane recently, jumps into the Twitter trail and says she’s forcing herself right into the hug. And instantly, my spirit opened up to receive her into the hug. If it was real life, I would have eased her right into it without her having to force.

And God told me that He was just opening Himself up more to me because I had jumped right into the middle of what He’s doing in this season!!!

img_20160418_020604.png

And I pray you understand what that means and how it can be applied to our walk with God so

#Selah!!!

Now let’s just jump right into what happened at Prophetic Motherhood.

img_20160409_202624.jpg

If I keep all that to myself, it will be absolutely WICKED!!!

I definitely learned plenty

img_20160418_020256.png

I want to get the same faith and fire into as many women as possible. Plus it looks like I entered this wahala myself with all my publicity. Every single chick wanted me to share what went down there. So that’s why I’m doing this since I can’t keep up individually with everyone.

We’ll do this in FOUR parts. Yes it was THAT GOOOOD!!!

Let’s start with what DDK said at #PropheticMotherhood… Infused with some E’ flavour.

Disclaimer: I can’t capture it all. Impossible. I’ll share what I can.

 

So what is Prophetic Motherhood?

img_20160418_020407.png

Prophetic motherhood is living on the fast lane of the Holy Spirit, knowing EXACTLY and doing ONLY what God wants me to do. Downloading accurate and precise directions for life concerning my seedsssssssss. (definition of seed coming up later).

It is when you restrain the forces of evil so that in your case and on your watch, ONLY that which God has said concerning your seed comes to pass.

img_20160418_020639.png

It is staying on my knees until I see in the physical all that God has told me in my spirit. You have to pray mama. What is keeping you awake to breastfeed better be strong enough to keep you awake to PRAY, and in tongues too. I mean, moms know that if your baby wants you awake, up and pacing at 2am, you go do am. So you better be up and pacing in prayers too because YOU CAN!!! (plus the devil is not playing with you. What is confronting us is SERIOUS BUSINESS)

img_20160418_020228.png

The physical demands of being a woman can weaken you but you must pray to God to strengthen you because you MUST find the energy to pray ooo. Love how the Bible says the Proverbs 31 woman ‘her hands are strengthened for the work…’ #NoTimeForLazinessOrWeakness

It is praying the Holy Spirit conditions my approach and regulates my heart as I raise my kids so that I am not led by my emotions. I can’t always be on a short fuse and always lashing out at my kids. As a woman, I have to express tenderness as I raise my kids and not be emotional. I must know the uniqueness of each child’s personality and receive wisdom to raise them as such.

It is understanding that the seed born of me will be OF GOD just as it was told Mary. And seed is not limited to children alone. It includes businesses, career, ministry, etc. So concerning the sector of the economy God is leading me to, I am LORD and KING and I take control for Jesus!!!

Prophetic Motherhood is understanding that there is a child within my husband and it is my job to call forth the greatness in him too.

There is nothing as powerful as a praying woman. What will be the strongest memories your kids will have of you? A praying mom? A wimpy weak or a crying mom?

img_20160418_020204.png

My #mommygoals should be that I’m my kids’ first role model in everything… career/ministry, marriage, relationship with God, etc. All round, I’m my kids’ mentor. My kids must aspire to meet (and then surpass) the very high goals I am setting in life. I must live right before them from childhood.

Don’t let Disney Junior and Nickolodeon raise your kids. You need to download from heaven the blueprint to raise each one of them.

We should make our kids givers from a young age. Tithe from their money. Give them prophetic pledges to give (to Pastors and Fathers). They too can enjoy the blessings and rewards that come from giving directly

The moment when your kids sleep at night is critical. When the world around is quiet, their spirit is very sensitive so that is a good time to put your hands on their chest/head and start to speak LIFE into their spirit.

Pray that you receive favor with their caregivers ie nannies, homehelps, teachers in school and church, etc. Mama, you cannot be everywhere, even if you are a FT stay at home mom. You need to overtake their caregivers by the Spirit to be full of love, wisdom and faith- unable to do them harm!!!

You know DDK granted this interview January last year http://virtuedigest.com/debola-deji-kurunmi-believe-woman-can/ and something struck me there when she said she is not afraid or thinking funny thoughts about her kids when she goes out for ministrations. I mean, she is free to pursue other seeds God has helped her birth.

I know people who fear is the reason there don’t want to get help. You need to take control of these things in the spirit ooo. Because there is more to you than being a mommy and so you need HELP and I will dwell on that when I get to What Pastor Dotun Arifalo said.

There was something Pastor M told me when I was looking for a help. Infact, she commented on a post sef she didn’t tell me directly.

image

But we all know your Pastor’s comment is a prophesy, prayer and vision rolled into one. I started declaring it ooo. That my ‘help’ comes from the Lord. You see Nkechi, she is a help from God. My life CHANGED when she got in. At the same time God was changing my season, He was preparing a Help for me to ensure that I could RUN with the vision in this next season.

No way!!!

No absolute way I would be HALF as productive without help. My dear, it takes a VILLAGE literally, to raise a child. So dear mama, give your absolute BEST and then capture Caregivers in the spirit to do their absolute BEST too. That prayer point hit all the right notes in my spirit.

OK and the final thing I wanna share resonated especially for me who is a ‘married but living single most times mama’. Haha (Not for too long anymore tho)

Do not underestimate the role of fathers. No mama, your own prayer is NOT enough. We also need the Fathers. There is an order and plan with God and so there is a place for the Father’s blessing. So if your hubby is not around, you better call him, put the phone on speaker and have him pray over the child both of you made ok? Trust me, I’ve already started biko. Every night or day, my baby daddy is gonna be praying over the phone and speaking the father’s blessing over him. Lemme carry the one I am wired to carry and not do overload biko.

And speaking of baby making, DDK ordered us to go and release the tigeress in us in the bedrooms. Our kids need to stop sleeping in our beds right in the middle of both of you so that we can ‘lambano’ what is ours at anytime.
image

(Oya baby, hurry home. Lol)

Gosh, I LOVE DDK!!!

image

Hawt us!!! (Well according to DDK)

I mean, that’s part of prophetic motherhood ooo. She spoke of REDHOT, something her ministry is birthing soon and it will focus on basically heating up the bedroom!!!

Bring. It. On. Mama!!!

All the abstinence somebody did before marriage has to be compensated for IN MARRIAGE biko!!!

Oh plus there is a Deborah Initiative for women (that’s her Ministry name) retreat in Abuja in June. Trust me, I’ll get details and blow it up on my blog.

OK one last thing she said I wanna share is this

Children are a BLESSING/GIFT from God. They should ENHANCE the others gifts and callings of God on your life and NOT HINDER it.

Phew.
image

I could do a 30day devotional on this line alone using my life. That was exactly my point in this post. KingDaveed has definitely enhanced my life.
image

There’s so much more she said and since I can’t capture it all, I’ll just stop here and jump right into ‘…what Pastor Dotun Arifalo said…’ and my people, that’s a TORNADO coming!!!

image

The Post is ready!!! Come back tomorrow!!! Plus I may be sharing a story about this hug tomorrow.
image

May!!!

I love you guys. Sooooooooo much.

Let’s make Jesus proud TOGETHER!!!

https://eziaha.com/2016/04/09/support-growing-businesses-part-2/

https://eziaha.com/2016/04/08/purpose-seasons-and-a-giantslayer-turns-one/
Anybody giving cash rewards???

Anyways, I’m back and this time I’m tumblin’ flippin’ excited!!!

Now let me tell you a bit about KingDaveed. Not only is he strong, that lil’ man is STRONG-WILLED!!!

image

If not that I had heard Pastor M talk about recognising strong leadership qualities in your child and honing those skills in the way of God, I just may have been throwing the S word around.

STUBBORN!!!

And wrong labelling often provokes wrong reaction to the kid and you will just be breaking a child’s spirit. 

image

Somedays, I’m plain overwhelmed. I look at KingDaveed and I’m like ‘…help me God. Help us God to raise Him in your ways. I’m just bland maimai without your help Lord…’

Pushes me to prayers. Pushes me to frame, edit and re-edit his confessions, my favourite two lines being ‘KingDaveed, you have strong leadership qualities with which you lead people to Jesus…’ and ‘KingDaveed, your spirit is tender to the things of God, you love the house of God and you are a big time Kingdom financier’.
Pushes me to hold his head every once in a while and lebrozokalibrahandalaye

image

Some days, I wonder what KingDaveed will be in the future. Frankly, I spent 6years post secondary school pursuing a Pharmacy degree for my parents that ended in chaos with me ultimately being withdrawn. See story here https://eziaha.com/2013/06/26/in-the-same-place/ and one day I will have the guts to publish the full UNCUT story!!! *exhale*

I don’t have time to waste KingDaveed’s time pursuing anything less than God’s intended for him.
No, ain’t noborry got time fo’ tha’.

image

I desperately want him to discover purpose on time and RUN with it passionately.

I learned something from Heather Lindsey. She said they set aside a PURPOSE FUND for Logan and not the more popular college fund. That’s cause she is aware that it is possible God’s purpose for Logan may not involve college/university. It could be ANYTHING and whatever God calls him to do, they will use his purpose fund to fund it and not just haul him off to college and run up unnecessary bills. I mean if God has called him into music, any need going to waste four years studying Political science first? Shouldn’t he just go to the best music school in the world straight up?

image

You see, that’s the kinda parenting we want for Bro KingDaveed (side eye Rukevwe).

image

But this kinda future does not come about by just giving him this powerful name. It will come as we get on our faces before God, and continue to pray for him. And not just him, THEM!!! 

image

Isn't that face to LIVE&PRAY for... Gosh!!!

KingDaveed and my future twin girls (who I have named after the two most influential women in my life. Guesses anyone?). Gosh, we cannot afford to fall asleep on the wheels. We can’t afford to be distracted with summer vacations and baby photo shoots while the main thing gets relegated.

image

I don’t want ‘prayer points’ over my kids in the future. I want my kids even more obsessed about Jesus than we are. I have seen firsthand, terrible parenting and it’s effects on kids. No, not on my watch!!! Not my kids. 

image

When I did that post on Purpose, Seasons and a GiantSlayer turns one, https://eziaha.com/2016/04/08/purpose-seasons-and-a-giantslayer-turns-one/ I got quite some messages from moms like me and even moms-to-be. Just, *sigh* messages. Don’t let me qualify the theme of most messages.

image

One thing tho, it is NOT too late to rise and fill our positions. No matter the story today, we can start to write a better story by standing up and in that gap for them. Labouring in prayers (and downloading from heaven) until Christ is etched in them. 

image

Which is why when I bumped into this on DDK’s page (my new unaware bestie), my spirit leaped!!! Jesus knows I need this. Even Angel Gabriel knows. I dunno if that post made me look like I have it all together but hunnay, I do NOT!!! There is always a MORE to enter and complacency (like comparison) is a game of fools. I believe so much in the power of prayers. Corporate prayers.

image

I’m looking forward to it. I’ve invited almost every mom-friend I know. I’m still inviting. That’s why I’m blogging this too. So I can reach more women. Moms, moms-to-be, moms-in-waiting, this is for EVERY WOMAN!!! 

image

Now listen…

I do NOT care what LIE the devil has told you…

I could NOT care less what the situation is today with your kid(s)…

There is a GOOD God in heaven and my Bible says there is NOTHING He cannot do. I mean, where there are moms to pray, there is a God to answer. If God gave you those babies, then mama, you are WELL ABLE!!! Come let’s fortify together!!! FOR. OUR. KIDS. 

image

Just throwing this tip out there- 

Come with a journal and pen. Don’t let any scripture, RHEMA, prayer point or Word pass your journal by. Don’t worry, it may not all make sense immediately, but when you go home and make a college course of it as you study and personalise it to the peculiarity of your kids, you would realise what perfect picture you would have painted, with nothing short of heavenly strokes!!!

Eeeeeek!!! I’m bursting excited, can you tell?

I’m even waxing poetic, and I HATE poems lol. 

image

I’m going to sleep. I’m deprived!!! Damn you Caffeine!!! And see yawl on Saturday 16th. 

image

Btw all those screenshots are off DDK’s Facebook page https://mobile.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153956887213796&id=617723795&set=a.218589603795.132414.617723795&source=48

Love,

MomE’

PS

Someone (I met off my blog) is naming their kid after me and making me godmama!!!

image

OK if that is not making it, I don’t know what is. Haha. I’m pretty obsessed with my name Eziaha and this is such an honour Eujay.

image

See the bump?

Such an honor!!! I know you can’t come for this but honey, i’ma be standing in the gap for you and your kids plus my God daughter too. Can’t wait to meet her. 

Oh and someone on this blog too named her son after my son, KingDaveed!!! I backflipped!!! No seriously!!! This is awesome.

image

Err, we must be doing something right, all to the glory of God!!! Amen!!!

PPS

Oh and the Joyce Meyer conference.

image

The Naija party is increasing!!!
And LIT!!!
I recently started praying almost daily for the conference. I can’t go and come back the same. Thunder fire devil. Mba!!! 

image

Plus yawl, we won’t come back if we don’t see Joyce ooo. And Chris. And Beth. We have to think up something. Naija no dey carry last!!! OK get all the details on #LoveLife conference here!!!

Are we even fighting AT ALL…?

You know, this week was an absolutely emotional one for me. For some reason, I spent quite some time on the phone with women.
I took away ONE thing from EVERY conversation.

EVERY!!!

That some, maybe most of us are NOT fighting hard enough!!!

My Rev (who I am CRAZY about more now than before) said something once in his leadership school.

image

It was a QnA session and someone had asked what informs his preaching per time…
He gave many things but one stuck out. I have NEVER forgotten
He said that sometimes you have quite a lot of people asking him questions on the same thing.

Different people. Random people. Same questions. Same issues.

Then he knows it is time to address it in a sermon…

That’s what this week was about for me so let’s yarn in this post.

Good thing is, I’m addressing myself too. I’m gonna write this knowing that I would have to come back from time to time and read it. Matter of fact, I’m sharing mostly my fights…

Ladies, are we fighting enough for what is OURS? Are we even fighting AT ALL?

No kiddin’ but looks like everywhere I turn, the devices of the enemy seem to be pumping itself up. But we who he is attacking are on Instagram.

If the devil ain’t coming for your kid, he’s coming for your marriage, or your husband, or your job through maybe a boss or policy from hell.

Oh, he’s coming for your finances too what with fridge spoiling today and pumping machine breaking tomorrow. Or even endless hospital bills for members of your home. Oh he’s really coming for our health.

He’s coming for your prayer and study life by making you either oversleep, engaging you in fruitless activities that leave you drained and unable to engage in activities that actually bear fruits. The ones God wants to use to bless you.

He’s coming for you by constantly whispering lies in your ears, sometimes through people closest to us, that make you cower and not live out your full potential.

He’s coming for you through domestic accidents, car accidents, and even NEPA!!!

That dude is coming for our lives and he’s not even slowing down. He’s deploying ALL of his arsenals.

He of course knows how to get to you and he is NOT holding back.

But a lot of us are sleeping, yawl.

Giving up.
Holding back.
Drawing back.
Making excuses.
Blaming the wrong person.
Fighting the wrong person.
Or just lounging on Instagram.

You know what, we are in a battle guys. This is not PS3. Or candy crush. Or subways surfer.
This. Is. Full. Blown. War.

image

We are in a battlefield guys. Not a play ground.

Sadly some of us are giving up just because he pulled the first punch.

Honey let me tell you what you do…
You. Fight. Back!!!

Oh Jesus, YOU roll up your sleeves and shokoto and get ready to kick some devil ass without pity.

image

But some of us don’t know how to fight because we don’t have any weapons. Our arsenals are empty.

The weapons of our warfare are NOT carnal but they are MIGHTY through God…

Tz not to late to get in the battle field babe.
Good thing is, we have read the end!!!
We. Win!!!
We end up with Jesus on the streets of gold baby.
The devil rots in eternal hell.
We. Win guys!!!
So we fight from victory.
We fight on our knees.
We go in our secret prayer place, get out our sword of the spirit-the WORD- and do some serious damage to the devil.

So that boss will not let you be, messing up your life and making you miserable at work.

No, don’t take it as ‘one of those things…’

You get home, block out like 30mins and scabash until even you KNOW it is settled!!! Do it everyday until that which you have spoken, becomes your reality. Either he/she changes or leaves or you leave to somewhere better.

image

Your laptop packs up for no just cause. Or starts misbehaving. And you know just how important it is to your life and productivity.

You sigh. And just leave it lying there.
No baby!!!

You better lay your hands on it and start commanding ooo.

NEPA decides to misbehave messing up almost everything at home. Nne, fight!!!

Either you are fighting for God to take you to the level financially where NEPA has zero effect on your life, or that you have power every time you need it.

I didn’t realise how powerful NEPA can be until some two weeks back. Light was almost always absent and my inverter almost always off.

If you see how my prayer life dipped ehn. Plus my productivity. I would just lay in bed almost all day, hating NEPA and doing nothing. Then when they bring it, I’m happy and wham, it goes off again and my everything dips.

I usually confess that I always have light in my home but during that time, I used to continually feel bad that all my confessions weren’t working and so I wasn’t even confessing again.

Ah, one day I heard God.

Like Eziaha, isn’t this when you are supposed to go even harder on your confession? Just some manifestation of the devil using NEPA and you wanna roll over and play dead.
I mean, NEPA!!!
Where’s your fight girl? How do you defeat the devil if you can’t defeat NEPA!!!
Go and do battle on this situation until it changes. But in the meantime, resolve that you would still maximise your day.

Oh I repented!!! I know I shared with the ladies in this group I’m in and one of them talked about not waiting till circumstances are perfect to keep our faith going.

You know what? I decided I would do battle. I would battle with the Word and keep my confessions going. I would fight until I have my 24/7 power supply (whichever way it comes) but in the meantime, find creative ways to yet maximise my day despite NEPA.
I’m not kidding, all through this week, NEPA was not even an issue.
NOT. AT. ALL!!!

image

I’m still fighting. I don’t stop.

How many of us stay fighting for the relationships God has put in our lives?

One little misunderstanding that you know you could have dealt with by putting your ego in check.

But no!!! You sacrifice a perfectly amazing relationship on the altar of self-worship!!!

You know what? I’ve decided to fight to keep the friends God has given me especially those in my inner-inner and then inner circle.

Gosh, I have decided to DO GRACE!!! Make excuses for them, forgive and fight to keep our friendship going.

This week one of my friends upset me. Or maybe I was over reacting and I just decided to do nothing. I would just leave it and well if we get to the end, we get there. Ain’t nobody got time to push.

You see, sometimes I’m like a spoilt kiddo. I hear how awesome I am a lot that sometimes I forget that awesome don’t mean i am perfect.

But this kiddo also wants to obey God so… I Shake it off and get on my face before God… humble!!!

Then in my Quiet time as I prayed, God told me to fight to keep it. Infact, God pushed me. He made me do what my flesh would NEVER do. That was when I tweeted this.

image

And I’m thankful I did. Because humans are not perfect. We don’t toss people just because… we fight to keep the relationships GOD Himself brought to us.

image

Still. Pretty. Traumatized!!!

And you know, I’m pretty resolved to keep fighting!!!

For friendship!!!

Sometimes you are not even fighting for a friendship but for a soul. Maybe God wants you to minister to XXX but a few ‘hinderances’ along the way, gets you like ‘abeggi. See someone I am even trying to help…Ain’t nobody got time for that’
No!!! Let’s not give up on something absolutely amazing that God wants to do through us just because human beings do what human beings do – misbehave!!!

You know, I was pretty done with this post and was just editing when one of my babies sent me this message.

image

You see, I felt like one proud mama. I told her I would add to a post I was writing. I’m so glad I didn’t give up on her when she gave me so many reasons to. Instead I loved her deep and prayed for her hard. I’m soooo proud of  you baby. You are sooo much stronger than you know.  Do you see how much stronger she sounds and how much willing she is to fight? Fight to kick any stupid soul ties as a result of past mistakes? Imagine if I got tired of an assignment God gave me in this babe.

Fight.
Fight to be a blessing.
Fight to obey God.

For some of us, the fight we have cowered from is a fight to save our marriages. Our marriages have gone through a rough patch and are not exactly the ‘fairy tale’ we quite expected and so we just resolve to sha be in it, and enjoy the 50percent it is offering. Afterall, at all at all na him bad pass.

Ah!!!

Gosh, honey fight for that dream marriage you envisaged. We don’t do half measures. We don’t take the crumbs the devil offers. We fight to take hold of ALL that God died for, thriving amazing marriages and all.

Or maybe you suspect your hubby may be looking outside or there is this one woman who you have bad vibes from. Or maybe sef, you KNOW He is flat out cheating. Don’t just sit and cry.
Or maybe cry yes but clean your eyes and go do some serious battle in your secret place.

Fight the devil. It’s really him.
Not your husband.

Attack the real enemy that wants to stay hidden.

image

I believe in marriage. I don’t think any marriage is exempt from the devil’s wiles. My own marriage throws me constant battles but one thing hubs and I are decided on is the fact that we will FIGHT to keep it. Keep fighting till it gets better and betterer.

I believe we should fight to save our marriages. Frankly I have a couple of people in my corner whose marriages I had sorta joined them to write off (don’t judge)but one day, as I prayed for God to help them move on, He nudged me to pray instead for a restoration.
Because He can restore.
He urged me to encourage them to FIGHT to save their marriages. And you know what, I actually believe, BELIEVE that He can heal these marriages. And I’m excited too.

You see how Elisabeth fought in War room??? You see that scene where after praying, she comes outside and starts to shout at the devil?

Sometimes that’s what you need to do. I know someone may think you are mad but you know what you are doing.

You know, a dear friend of mine shared with me how long she stays just thinking about her life every morning, what she has and doesn’t have, comparing herself with X and Y. For almost 2hours every morning.
Hian!!! That devil is a bastard. God punish him. I had to tell her it was time to do battle.
Get your Bible out, search out scriptures that pertain to that and just keep repeating it to yourself.

Or when he comes and reminds you of your single state or the fact that you don’t have babies yet? Or you don’t have a job yet. Cos trust me honey, he’s coming for you. To attack your mind. Stay ready to fight. And no matter your circumstances, resolve to be JOYFUL even in your waiting. Sometimes, that’s our most potent weapon. Our joy, complete and unshaken.

It a journey we are on and I am so convinced she’s gonna be such a fighter the devil will wish he didn’t start this fight!!!

Frankly that’s also something I do. I have an absolutely over-imaginative mind and so whenever the devil throws those thoughts in, I don’t take bait. Rather I go all 2Cor 10 : 5 and 6

image

For example, sometimes the devil may say what if KingDaveed falls down and hurts himself or whatever worse…
I actually stop what I am doing and say out loud…

‘…I capture that thought and I force it into the obedience of Christ and His Word. I declare that there are Angels watching over us and him and so we will not as much as smite our feet against a stone…’

I say that as often as I need to.
Because we counter thoughts with words…
Creflo Dollar says ‘…a silent Christian’ is an oxymoron.
So I love to watch that scene with Elizabeth shouting over and over again. Legit gives me goosebumps.

No way we should let the devil get away with anything. 
Are we also fighting for our health and that of our children?

image

The delight of my heart

I recall January 1, KingDaveed started running a temperature. Like play like play we hit almost 40 degrees.
I. Was. So. Mad.
You see, I’m a firm believer in using your faith to keep the sickness away but if you have slacked and it has come, I am not anti-drugs. Especially for a baby. Except God is leading me otherwise, I can trust Him to give the doctors wisdom in prescribing and trust that the drugs will work.

So I spoke to my bestie, she prescribed, I bought. And hated that I was spending money on drugs at the start of the year.

Trust the devil to start speaking into your mind that na so the year go dey. Since we have cucu started that way.
Joke!!!
JOKER!!!
I said NEVER AGAIN!!!

I got scriptures. As many as I could. On health.

I wrote them out long hand. And every single day, I speak it over my household. My baby, hubby and now my help. Of course over me too. I stay on the offensive. I fight!!! I don’t agree that ‘...it is the weather…’ I recognise that the stripes that wounded Him covers the elements too…’

So if for some reason he starts coughing, I start speaking with every cough

I declare that you are healed by the stripes of Jesus… I curse this cough smiting it from its root in Jesus name…’

Even if it looks like nothing is happening, I keep speaking. I even add that
‘…God I may not see it but I believe that you are working behind the scenes. Therefore I am not moved by what I see…’

There was this time the devil was messing big time with my peace. And joy. It was when I was looking for a help. With every sign of hope, I was joyful. With every hope dashed, maybe we don’t agree on this and that, or the agent just does the most ludicrous thing, I would be soooo sad.
One day, after my mood went from 100 to -100 because of another closed door, God had to sit me down and ask whether my trust is in Him or the Agents? The devil was messing BIG TIME with my peace and joy.
Ah!!!
I knew I had to fight. Because this battle if I lost it, I would desperately open a door He had closed.
I gathered scriptures on peace and joy and trust. Wrote them out long hand and started eating it.

I fought till I got my peace back.
With every door that closed, I rejoiced. Because that was God closing it and saving me. My joy and peace stayed in tact.

And when God finally opened a door, I KNEW it was Him. But until then, I didn’t let the devil mess with me.

Wooooh, this is a battle of Words oooooooooooo.
See why you MUST study the scriptures for yourself and not be a comedian???

image

You see why you stay on your knees?

You know, there was this time in a friend’s home where she realised she was always fixing this and that. It always starts small small. The devil NEVER comes in obvious fashion.

An AC here so you call the AC repairer. The hose in the washing machine, you call the plumber. The water heater starts dripping? Plumber again? Microwave packs up? Speed dial the guy who fixes it? Cabinet/wardrobe spoils, you call carpenter.
Fridge sparks? Generator packs.
And the list keeps increasing. And the frequency too.
One day she told me ‘…but babe I am a TITHER na… it is time to pray...’

That was wisdom.
That is wisdom.

Sometimes the solution is not to call the plumber. It is to go round your home, anoint everything while reminding yourself, God and the devil that you tithe and so the devourer stays rebuked.
I love this DP…

image

I strongly believe that this is what we have been called to be
Warriors. In. Heels.
It don’t have to show from your outer demeanour. But spiritually, be a pit bull!!! A bull dog!!!

image

When you wake up, let the smaller demons tell the bigger demons to tell the devil himself that it is time to pick race.

image

We are not about that giving up life.
You need some scripture for that?

Hebrews 10:39
We are not quitters who lose out. Oh no we will stay with it and survive. Trusting God all the way.

Just to balance things up, there is a part for you to play.
Any fight of faith that leaves everything to God is an irresponsible faith.

image

Say you are fighting for your marriage, sister that is not the time to respond to everything hubs says just because you must have the last word or show that you are right!!!
You sef shut up sometimes.

Or you are fighting for your health yet KFC daily and you don’t work out?

No ma!!! No sir!!!

Eeeeek and Hallelujah!!!

A dear dear friend shared something with me this week that got me doing the Holy dance. I had encouraged her to work on her weight especially as we were in faith for her health which the devil was messing with big time. Now, her irregular period has normalized and all that hormonal drama is gone. Plus she is rocking a HOT new look.
So faith and work!!!

So as I trust God for the health of my home, I make sure that the home stays clean, we eat good food not just junk and so on.

I’m trusting God for my finances so I make sure I am tithing and being a good steward of HIS money HE has so graciously given me and putting Him FIRST!!!
I’m fighting to keep friendships and so beyond praying, I’m doing the necessary investment and inconveniencing myself occasionally for my friends.
I mean, that’s how we fight!!!

image

And after it dries, kick ass!!!

Sister, the devil can deal the first blow but make sure that he doesn’t KNOW what hit him by the time you gather yourself.

image

Let me leave you with Ephesians 6

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.12 For we[a] are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[b] 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.[c] 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.[d]

Here’s to fighting, heels and all

Haha. I don’t even know what to say. I’m just thankful for them!!!

PPPS
Blogging is work!!! This took me like FIVE hours!!! Jeeeeeez!!! But by Jesus, I LOVE this job!!!
But I need to learn to write shorter. Not.

Haha.

An absolutely FAB update…

Hey yawl, How is everyone doing?

So sorry I went AWOL. In fact. I am so sorry that I am coming here to give an update. I was just gonna disappear for a while.

What do you think those three posts in a day were for?

Bhahaha😂😁::

Ok really tho, yawl know I got a homehelp (Betterer) and then my bedmate for the past 27months came home too so blogging dropped a few notches down my priorities list. Remember that post I did on BALANCE? Ehen…

Permit me to be off till my baby’s FIRST birthday on March 10. Gosh, can you believe it? I have been a mama for almost a year??? I don’t even have the words to describe this life changing experience but my heart is bursting with gratitude to GOD for such a privilege to parent this Giant slayer KingDaveed and soooo much love for the little human.

Gosh!!! Our God is soooooooooo sooooooo good!!!

No, we are not having a party but feel free to send us gifts and everything.

(My sister says we don’t celebrate first birthdays in our family. She says it is a pure waste of money so do a nice photo shoot to capture his first year and get him something nice to mark it. Dazall. Anything else is a waste of money. Save it for his third when he will totally be a very aware birthday boy and party rocker. I agree. But hey, if you are a first birthday party thrower, enjoy hun.)

Ok moving on…

I will be taking on another set of five ladies after this first batch of five. Pink, I will auto consider you so let’s do this. My requirements will most likely be the same as here but I will add a few more. Hehe. Just watch this space. We kick off in April. I make them do a weigh in forthnightly and imagine my joy when most logged in a 5kg loss in the first two weeks.

Even though it is a lot of work, I am too excited at the success stories so far especially the ones that have to do with increased confidence and self esteem. Because I walked that road, I KNOW just how that feels, so I want more ladies to toss that FAT and pick up some HOTNESS!!!

Btw, thanks everyone for all the love. Will definitely miss blogging but it is just two weeks abi?

Tz amazing what you find when you REALLY start digging or stalking.
I feel like I am in a school with Chris and Joyce and Shirer as my major lecturers and so I am just learning, and growing and being pruned and getting all the funk brought up to the fore and all that PAINFUL stuff. I mean this picture just wrecked me
image

Just trying to build that light in me guys.
Jeez!!!

See yawl on March 10 and up until the end of April, we will have a steady stream of posts. I am excited about writing because when you listen to and actually LISTEN to Christine Caine and open your heart to an open heart surgery by Doctor Jesus as you apply, your life changes!!!

It absolutely CHANGES FOR LIFE!!!
Plus you get really CRAZY too haha.
Tz awesome!!!

(Doesn’t have to be Chris for you. Anyone God is leading you to)

So stay glued to this blog. Subscribe too. When you scroll to the end of the page, I think you see the ‘subscribe’ button.

😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

E’

PS
Funny story.
My ‘betterer’ actually told me last night while I was prepping dinner…
‘Aunty, you no dey eat ooo. I no dey see you eat. Only garden egg I dey see
I almost died from laughter.
I don’t even know what to say. I actually eat but she probably considers what I eat ‘not-food’
Lol I am still laughing. In fact I even overeat sometimes that in one week I moved from 79.3 to 80.4kg haha.
And in another week, this one that just ended, I worked it all out and went down to 77kg.
image
This weight loss business is now fun walahi.
Which is why I decided to do another FIVE ladies.
OK I am off to church

Dear Stay-at-home mom/wife…

I am super excited about this post because I am sharing lessons from my life with wives and moms. I realised that in my circle these days are a lot of young wives, new moms and stay-at-home ladies, and as we interact, I feel a divine need to share some in a post.

Stick around tho even if you don’t fall into any of the above category. You would defo learn a thing or three. Plus you can share post with others who might need it.

So like yawl know, after I had my baby, I quit work, relocated, and became a FT stay-at-home mom and work-from-home mom in transit.
It has been plenty challenging, especially considering the kinda person I have always been plus the future I chose for myself as a high-faluting career woman, but one thing and one thing alone has made it easier… God told me to!!!

On this rather interesting journey, I have learnt a lot. And I have GROWN!!! Oh I have so grown and matured tz just beautiful. Just walking the journey with Him has never thrown up a dull moment. I have learned and continue to learn but I am inspired by the Holy Spirit to blog and share what I have learned so far…

You don’t have to agree with everything I say but it is my prayer that the Holy spirit, THE TEACHER, takes all of this and customizes it to your own reality.

Amen.

Shall we?

7tips for the Domestic Queen…

1. Start your day early.

image

Pix courtesy dreambigstartsmall

Don’t give in to always sleeping in and waking up at 10am or later just because you don’t have an ‘official’ resumption time. Personally, I learned that I get a good start to my day and then ultimately have a productive day when I wake at 5/6 unlike when I wake at 8. Or later. Like my Rev says ‘Champions seize their day early’.
So be intentional about starting your day on time and not just staying in bed all morning. And that goes without saying ‘early to bed’ too when you can help it.

2. Have a schedule.

image

Image from shutterstock

Don’t just let the day happen by.
PLAN.
Write down what and what you wanna achieve that day and tick boxes as you accomplish them.

image

If you are casual about the day, you might end up checking LIB and watching Africa Magic all day. Personally, I recommend you include some PDP in your day. That’s Personal Development Programs. Say read a book, apply for jobs(if you are staying home for a while only), take Coursera free/premium courses, update your CV, Google and do some research on parenting, life, entrepreneurship, and your career so you are not totally out of touch, just do something (anything) that makes you a better person than when you woke. Might I also add that you read sensible blogs like mine, Inthe’s, Iplus, Dr. N, JUG, etc.

3. Be mindful of ‘mindless actvities’
Especially social media, TV and movies.

image

I think this is a HUGE challenge with stay-at-home mamas. There is the inclination to be on Twitter, browse Facebook, check IG, watch Telemundo/Zee world/AfMag and repeat cycle till 9pm. Sweetie, you really DO NOT need to follow any new telenovella that debuts. Internet is so affordable these days but it doesn’t mean you have to stream all those movies on YouTube, Netflix and IrokoTV. Be wise. Keep entertainment minimal. Don’t let it all overwhelm you please. Use your Internet wisely. There is a well of resources to access online that would change your life so please engage your mind right.

4. Watch your diet.

image

Oh this one is HUGE. Because you are fully home, chances are your mouth keeps moving all the time especially as you watch those movies… chin chin, puff puff, chicken, minerals (lol), juice, rice, garri, gala, biscuit, sausage, bread, tea with milo, etc.

image

You just keep eating. And you don’t workout even if minimally. Can I be truthful with yawl? It was this stereotype of ‘fat housewife just sitting home eating her husband’s money‘ that  made me give loosing weight EVERYTHING!!! Someone had already implied it when she saw me (not in a rude way tho) and I said MBA, not E’. I might be a Domestic Queen but i’ma be one HOT mama, thank you very much!!!

image

Prouda me mehn!!!

So please eat right, in moderation and get some exercise in often. Even as little as 30min walks daily.

5. Don’t belittle your role. YOU ARE PRICELESS

image

I did this a whole lot. I would beat myself up that I wasn’t making ‘regular money’ all I do is change diapers and stuff. I would be so grumpy and sad. But God worked wella on me, hallelujah!!!
Darling, if you are making this sacrifice because of your baby, I don’t know many things that top it.

image

I recall my MIL came visiting once when KingDaveed was 9months and after a couple of hours, she started hailing me that this boy is a FULL TIME JOB ooo. My son has ENERGY tz incredible. And God has really helped me with him because his health, growth, development, etc has been perfect!!! Praise God.
You dear mom are doing a GREAT job. Don’t let anyone belittle what you are doing. You may NOT be bringing in the money but hunnay, you are saving your home a lot of money(and I will share some ways later in the post). Plus you are doing one of life’s greatest jobs, impacting the next generation.

image

Like a dear friend told me, enjoy doing this and let your kids see and feel you enjoying it, not having them think they are a distraction to your life. God forbid!!! How would you like to have your life withOUT the child??? #Perspectivecheck

5. Take occasional baby/child free breaks!!!

image

Mommy day-outs are a MUST. You need to relax and refuel. You will burn out if you don’t. At least, once or twice a month. If you can do it weekly, please do. Get someone to babysit or engage the grandparents for a weekend and enjoy some me-time. With friends? Even better. Catch a drink.

image

Image from empowher...

See a movie. Browse the mall. Shop. Drive around town. Visit a friend. Buy something nice for YOU. Go to the spa. Attend a wedding/party. Whatever. Even if all you can afford is a long walk while talking on the phone to your bestie or sis. Just take some time out to do YOU!!!

image

Just last week, I was telling one of my dear friends that we pay way too many sacrifices, deprive ourselves of a lot so our babies and men and home are more comfy yet neglect ourselves. There is a thin line between prudence and sufferhead ooo. Don’t cross it.

image

Spend on yourself too cos YOU MATTER!!!

6. Shrug-therapy

image

Got this term from my mama Joyce. Honey, sometimes you have planned out the PERFECT day but a blip occurs early in the day and messes it all up. Or maybe your baby decides not to sleep at all. Or NEPA strikes, Gen and inverter are also out so there goes your day. Nne, roll it over to God, apply the shrug therapy and just shrug it all off. Somethings you can’t control jare so you won’t kee yourself. Don’t let it steal your HAPPY.

image

Infact if it gets too much, go watch a movie or play music and start dancing with your kids. Goof around. Order pizza and enjoy guilt free. Leave the plates in the sink, cloths scattered, etc and just have a good time.

image

One bad day won’t hurt anyone. So shrug it off baby…

7. I saved the absolute best for last!!!
OVERDOSE on your time with God.

image

Oh darling, you can’t do this on your own. You will be frustrated. You will cry A LOT. You will fight your husband. You will be a wicked witch from the west stepmom mom. You will beef all your working class friends. You will quarrel with your neighbors. Hunnay, you need GRACE every single day you wake. Spend crazy lengths of time with God.

image

I suggest you have your special place e even if just a corner.
Pray for your hubby. Ask God to give him wisdom and knowledge in dealing with you (cos they are prone to say/act ‘one kind’ sometimes). Pray for the finances of your home. Ask God to show you even more creative ways to save money and even bring in money to the home, even though you ain’t working. Pray for things that money can buy and things money can’t buy. I personally enjoy this grace. This past year, so much financial and material blessings have come into my home from my end tz incredible. Pray for your kids, their health, social life, growth and development, studies, spiritual life, etc. Health is so important. You don’t wanna spend your finances and emotions on hospital bills and stress.

image

Pray for the home. That everything works well and the devourer stays rebuked. All this AC spoiled today, iron blew yesterday, pumping machine is broken, no light so soups and stews in the freezer spoilt, they are devourers ooo. Pray against them. Pray that light is constant. Pray for safety and security. Pray for hubby, his career/business/ministry. If he needs to take God more seriously, pray for his soul. Let your hubby know that anything he mentions to you, you will pray about it and miracles will happen. Pastor Kingsley in one of his books says Men love women that pray. Pray for your people and inlaws. Babe, there is a LOT to pray about so go into your prayer room/closet/corner/secret place often and PRAY!!!

image

Spend crazy time at His feet studying the Word. Pray with your baby too. Pray aloud and let him/her/them hear you even if they are just 3months. Their spirits are getting something. Teach your kids to pray. Model a life of prayer to them

image

Go on the ‘Tube and download tons of videos from men and especially women of God. I heartily recommend Heather Love Lindsey’s videos. She’s amazing with her life and she will inspire you. I also recommend Priscilla Shirer and Joyce Meyer and Joel/Victoria Osteen. I don’t spend extended time in the kitchen without my laptop watching one of the above mentioned. Then my dstv moves from Disney junior for my baby and Faith channel for me (or Daystar esp The Green room. That couple is adorbz). On your dvd, keep gospel jams jamming everywhere at home. Somedays I don’t have time to have a full quiet time but I make sure the Word gets into me in other ways.

image

Get scripture cards and paste around your home so that you constantly bump into it and take it in. Be creative. Your time with God is soooo important so you MUST be intentional about creating time for it. And please go to church. Don’t sleep in on Sunday mornings. Especially if your hubby is not really the ‘church type’. Please go. And take your kids with you. Join a unit in church and serve fully and faithfully. Soon hubby will join you.
I can’t over emphasize this point darlings.

image

Be the PRAYER WARRIOR of your home

Tz soooo important.

Bonus point: GET HELP.

image

Stop all this NONSENSE of trying to be a superwoman. You are not impressing anybody. Don’t kill yourself.

image

The moment I moved into my Rehoboth, I told hubs I was getting someone to come in twice a week to clean and wash pending when my FT homehelp comes. And I did. I don’t wanna burn out abeg.

image

The amount I pay her is NOTHING compared to the stress she saves me. In whatever way you choose,(live in, come and go, come once a week, creche or afterschool services) get help. No medals for sufferhead!!! Nobody is impressed!!!

image

Yes I am pissed because I have heard some comedian women talk nonsense about this help matter and because some read my blog, I will not say more lol. Dang, even the Proverbs 31 woman had help

image

Peek verse 15

That’s all mamas. At least this is all I can recall for now. Please if anyone has more tips, share in the comment box. And also share post with any Domestic Queens (in the words of the amazing TD Jakes) you know. Esp if she is sprung on ZeeWorld lol…

Love yawl and Merry Christmas.
And don’t over eat on World Food day aka Christmas. Hehe
Come back before the new year for one last post…
