My Victory Song!!!

My life has been an extremely complex jigsaw puzzle that I am still finding quite difficult to unravel. But like Job, I have found that God isn’t afraid of our questions, He in fact, welcomes them and draws us in closer to learn more. I am astounded by His supreme intelligence, extraordinary strategy, deep unsearchable wisdom, even while still perplexed at the trajectory of my experience. Walk with me, dear reader, and let’s see if you can unravel it to an extent… Who am I that You are mindful of me? I hear that phrase very often in religious......

Always telling us everything is all right. Well, it was never like that with her. She has in the past spent hours on her knees crying and praying until that soft sweet voice told her to worship, now all she does is praise and worship and her life has...

Walk Of Shame 4 - Starting All Over

Walk Of Shame 4 – Starting All Over

Working with the group counselor has been a deep intense journey into myself. I never knew there were so many layers covered in the pain of rape and sexual abuse. In fact, this hiatus has helped me discover the direct effects of the violation on my self image and subconscious. As I peeled back and dived in, it took a lot of courage for me to confront the past, open up about my pain, assumptions and behavior. Why I did the things I did, thinking erroneously that I was being tough, sleeping with multiple guys, hurting friends and acquaintances...

Walk of Shame 3 – Confronting the Truth

Reluctantly but searching for a solution to save my marriage and my face, I went to the group my brother introduced me to. I heard so many people’s stories. They really were heartbreaking stories and I wondered how they found a place in their hearts to smile and achieve things. Even our coach was abused as a toddler up until she became a teenager. Her assistant experienced the same, but he was male and abused by his own father and uncle. The stories were out of a Nollywood movie; I couldn’t believe they were real; as real as what...

Walk of Shame 2 – Exposing the Demon Within

Daren was just 7 years old when it all started. I was 12 and blossoming. I had started getting full around my chest area at the age of 9, and then my shape and height took over by age 11. Dad and I had always been close from birth, so it was no surprise that I was often seen kissing him on the lips and sitting on his thighs every now and then. Plus he was my father, so it was expected. Things got funny when Mum died. He was a nervous wreck, I had to grow up fast...

Walk Of Shame

Walk Of Shame

I was an extreme extrovert to some and to others, an extreme introvert. I wonder how my husband fell in love with me, cause in truth, I loathed myself. The strange part was that I didn’t know! I drank too much, smoked too much… mind you, I drank and smoked anything and everything. Most guys called me rigid because, emotionally, I was a wreck. I used to say that a stone lived where my heart was and it was better for me. I didn’t know it was not at all good for me. I dated who I liked when...

The Victim And The Victor 3: Sophisticated Grace

The Victim And The Victor 3: Sophisticated Grace

As I said last week, my breakthrough wedding came four years after. By this time, I was more mature in every sense of the word. I was grown spiritually, emotionally and physically. I could manage my emotions well, or so I thought. Until two years into my marriage, my monthly period became the biggest enemy I saw every month. I sucked in more disgrace because my sisters-in-law made matters worse. They reminded my husband how they had advised him not to marry me because of my age, saying I’d probably never have kids. They even introduced a second wife...

The Victim And The Victor: Woman Wahala 2

I burst into tears when the lady I was against was the one comforting me during my ordeal. Yes, I was young and stupid when I teamed up with Zara, Ify and Dara to condemn Kendra. I was in my early twenties then and felt I could take over the world…as though everything was planned in my favour. Yes, I am favoured but God allows us to go through difficult times to build our faith and character some more. My life had its ups and downs but my most trying period was as a matured single in search of...
