My parents are celebrating 40 years of marriage today! Please help me thank God for keeping them for one another for all this time. I’m so proud of who they are as individuals and as parents, and I love the strong example they have left me regarding what marriage really looks like. When wedding vows mention “in sickness and in health” those are not empty words. As my parents begin their next 40 years of marriage, I pray that Almighty God will keep them healthy, in love, and give them many wonderful things to look forward to. Continue reading
July’s Thankful Thursday post was supposed to be shared with you two weeks ago, from Nigeria, but I dropped my Continue reading
I turned on Lara George’s Dansaki and danced to it while singing it out loud before posting this blog post. Even though I’m sick, it felt good to praise God because He has been so good to me and to my family. And on this last Thursday of June, it’s time to share those things that I’m thankful for.

It’s the last Thursday of May and there’s no better time to give thanks to God for all that He has done, all that He is doing, and all that He will do in the future. Specifically? File this one under “a little bit vain” but I thank God that I still had plenty of hair left on my head after I finished removing my ten-week-old braids!

A sermon of Bishop TD Jakes’s spoke to me this past weekend: I was listening to part of it while cleaning the bathroom and from the way I was responding out loud you’d think that I was in church. I thank God for inspired words that come at the perfect time. I thank God for the convicting power of words. And I thank God in advance for the … Continue reading

I hope you had a great month; one that was filled with plenty of things that caused you to say “Thank you, God!”. If you’re a GNG Insider, in a few days I’ll be sharing what I’ve been learning about this whole “looking for love” business. Sign up to receive my monthly messages and you’ll be all set!
Here’s what I’m thankful for this month. Continue reading
As I wrote this month’s thankful post, I had Agatha Moses as my soundtrack (go to 18:07 for the above chorus). I think every Nigerian knows the medley that the above excerpt is from—if you don’t, please hand in your Nigerian passport now.
I have so much to be thankful for this month; God is GOOD.
- First off, I’m thankful for my dad’s time investment and belief in me. He always puts aside whatever he’s working on without a question to listen to what I have to say. It’s always been like that so it can be easy to take it for granted, but when I heard someone say that her father always looks at her like he wishes she would disappear, and worse, that she’s Continue reading
