Chronicles Of My May 12Trip Challenge: Prosperous Hotel And Swimming Pool Stories

Hi everyone! How’s your day going? Better than mine I hope? So I wanted to get the pictures added to the post I’ve written about my trip to Idanre hills and upload today but uploading them through my phone is taking a lot of work to get done because I snapped the pictures with my camera and the size is really large… And I am currently trying to get my 12Trip challenge for May done so why don’t I just write a live post for that instead? Would be more fun innit? More so because I wanted to write something little about it on facebook and ended writing A LOT so I know I need an outlet for my feelings […]

Adegbite Kelvin: I Have Learned

Hi, I will like to share with you some little things I have learned not quite long in this life… I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back. I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts. I’ve learned that you should […]

My Testimony: The Lord Surely Directs The Steps Of The Godly

Hello everyone! Today’s Online Bible Study will be taking a bit of a twist today. Testimony time with the message wrapped in it all 🙂   So as I type this, I am sitting in the living room of someone I met from my blog in a series of events that can only be “divine direction/connection” Let me explain… And oh, she doesn’t know that I am writing this(I guess you’ll read it here sis) but I explain myself better in words(the life of a writer) and this has been ringing in my head so I better just put it down… It began with a series of emails… “Hi Frances, I am an avid reader of your blog…” “Hello sis, […]

For Christian Writers/Bloggers: Let Writing For God Build Your Character

My recent article on Bella Naija (click I Am Not Looking For A Boyfriend! I Only Want To Talk About Business ) got me thinking about virtue and character. And one would ask how writing on a site will get one thinking about character and virtue. I’ll explain… My recent article on BN reminded of some of my earlier articles on BN like the “My Cooking Skills Do Not define Me” and “Imperfectly Perfect“ Those articles had so much backlash directed at me in the comment section – so much backlash that certainly would have made me cry if I wasn’t so strong. And the most recent article had a little bit of those kind of harsh comments too. It […]

Another Way Of Knowing God’s Will About A Potential Spouse

Dear lovers of Frances’s love letters, I hope this letter meets you well. For me, as at the time of writing this letter, I am well and mighty grateful to God. I’ve been singing a certain song in my heart too, let me share the words on here… “I bless your name Lord, your plans for me are always, always good…” Yes, God is awesome! Like I wrote in our last love letter, He is worthy to be praised, not just for what He has planned for us maritally, but also for everyone that He doesn’t have for us maritally. I’ve had people who tell me that I speak about God like He is sitting on the chair close to […]

Holding Onto The Promises Of God

Hey there! Welcome to my favorite segment on the blog. Our #OnlineBibleStudy! I can hear you say that it’s your favorite segment too. Oh yes? 🙂 Today’s Bible Study was done on sunday(if you follow our blog facebook page, you’d have seen this already) Can I just say that I love how God makes me dig into His Word through things that happen to me? Seriously, go through each of the Bible Studies done here and you’ll notice that God always brings the Word out through some stuff or the other. So please don’t get weary in whatever you are going through. If you’ll stick with the lessons, your spirit will grow as God feeds it.(this is just an aside) […]

Let’s Analyze The Thing About Plans, Purposes And Pursuits

Happy New Week blog hearts! How was your weekend? And how has your day been so far? Mine has been spent in rush, from prayers to exercising to climbing the hill to writing this blog post. Talk about having a lot to do in the morning 🙂 Thank you so much for your soothing words in my last post. The words made me let go of the guilt at my laziness/procrastination with my goals and gave me the push to start afresh again. Thank you. As much as your words were true though, I couldn’t help but feel like most of us didn’t really get the point I was trying to pass across so it’s been ringing in my head […]

Thanking The Lord For Almost Relationships that Never Saw The Light Of Day

Dear single ladies and gentlemen, I’m so sorry that today’s letter’s coming to you a bit late, I have had a whirlwind of a day today. I wanted to spend my day on the hill alone but ended up having 3fellow corpers coming along for the ride. Talk about a total burst of the “alone bubble” but it’s been fun. I had lots of lessons on relationships that God has been teaching me to write to you about today but as usual, I always love to write about the one that’s really impressed on my heart to write about. I was walking down my street a few days ago when I just started thinking about the “almost relationships” that I […]

Chronicles of My March 12Trip Challenge: Ureje Lake, Banga Soup, And Other Stories

Hello people! Hope you didn’t think that I abandoned my travel goals for this year? Nah, I just have a backlog of posts that I have to publish and it starts now! 🙂 So I missed my trip for the month of March and decided to go swimming which as can be read in my stuff about me post, I haven’t done for years and years. I changed my mind about swimming though, and decided to go see Ureje Lake in Ekiti which I read about in Naijatreks. The location was just a few minutes from my house but my people, that trip was one chance! First of all, the lake isn’t a tourist centre(somebody say huh?) but it could […]

You Are The Blessed Of The Lord

So I mentioned in my last post that I was at a conference at Akure this past week. It was organized by Pastor Funke-felix Adejumo, a women conference and it was just awesome. We just rounded up a powerful session one evening when I just felt led to empty my purse and give and of course one cannot hold back in giving so I gave. No sooner had I given it and satan brought thoughts of “you will be hungry throughout this month of may and you’ll be broke” Of course I cast the silly thoughts down, but I was on my way home in a cab again when the thoughts started coming on again. “How will you survive in […]

For Everyone In Need Of A New Beginning In The Middle Of A New Year

Happy new week blog hearts! I’d love to appreciate everyone who checked on me or at least “secretly wondered” about why I didn’t blog last week(in Itunu’s words 🙂 Thank you for your care. I’ll tell you guys why I went AWOL in a minute but before then, I think it’s expected that I tell you guys the outcome of the Nigerian blog awards. I know that some of you voted for me and it’s so long overdue that I at least thank you all and say what’s up. No, Imperfectly perfect lives didn’t win, but yes, thank you all for nominations and votes. Those I spoke to personally know that I didn’t even want to participate in votes and […]
