Understanding The wilderness Seasons Of walking In Purpose

For Those Who Aren’t ‘Outwardly Manifesting Purpose’….Yet   Have you discovered your purpose yet? Are you currently walking in it? Some persons would answer yes to both questions. Some other persons would answer yes to the first question and no to the latter. If that person is you then this post is for you. You know, today’s world is rife with applause being given to everyone who is “doing stuff” and making waves. You see words like “I celebrate you for walking in your purpose” and if you don’t know this truth I am about to share, then there is a tendency for you to feel down and count yourself as nothing because you aren’t all “out there….yet”. Now here […]

…Not For The Applause Of Men

Almost everywhere I turn… Instagram, Facebook, etc. There is such a grapple for fame and applause. Everyone wants to be seen as doing something for God. As walking in purpose. “I” am doing this and I am doing that. There’s just such a slap on your face when you get into social media and sadly this push to do one thing or the other has crept into the Christian fold.   Now, if you are not walking in purpose/your purpose is not outwardly manifesting like others are, you are deemed to be a failure. Worse, you yourself deem yourself to be a failure (we will talk about outwardly manifesting purpose soon). Last year I got a “I am proud of […]

How I Discovered My Purpose

I have been getting some questions on “purpose” recently but even before the the questions, this post has been ringing in my heart.   If you are just joining us on the blog, welcome! #PurposefulMondays is a category on the blog where everything we share is aimed at inspiring you to walk in God’s purpose for your life.   So this is what God says in Jeremiah 29:11   “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 ESV And also in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born […]

Stewards! Stewards! That’s Who We Are!

“Prayers for your future husband” almost put me in trouble with this steward  deal… I related the story here. Somehow I got into thinking that these books must be my books. The efforts my efforts. The plans of my doing. Maybe I wasn’t thinking like that out rightly but in my heart, those were my thoughts. It took a test for me to see my heart. So I have had to relive and remind myself of Matthew 25 afresh again.   “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each […]

Life Lately: Lessons, Trials And Triumph From Our Ladies Event/Book Launch At Port Harcourt

First of all, my new book “Prayers for your future husband” has not been officially launched. Yes. The night before the event we found out that the books were not going to get to Port Harcourt till the next day. I cried. I was frantic. I thought of calling off the event and then I texted my brother… “What’s a book launch without my books..?” His first reply? “Lol, your books? Who told you that the books are yours? Just because your name is on the front cover doesn’t mean that it’s yours. Its HIS. THE BOOKS BELONG TO GOD”. Oh Lord, I thought, again? Why won’t you just let me go? I felt like God wanted to squeeze the […]

WATM Series || The Power Of A Praying Man + Giveaway For Men

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Where are the men series

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Where are the men seriesSince I am writing a book on Prayer and Prayers for your future husband at that, I have found myself thinking about “the man” sometimes. Some people might argue “Frances, why are you writing a book on prayers for our future husbands, what about the men? If we pray for them, how are we sure that they are praying for us?” This is for the ladies. The truth is we cannot be sure of what the man is doing right at this moment. Who can tell whether he is even born again or not? Maybe it’s even the prayers God is laying on your heart that […]

‘Where Are The Men’ Series || On Spiritual Covering/Mentorship

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Where are the men series

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Where are the men series“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, in keeping with the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my dear son:…” -2Timothy 1:1a I read the words above in my Bible and I wondered: ‘how many men are still addressed as son by someone out there?’ Paul addressed Timothy as “my dear son” and in that word is encompassed all Timothy was/grew to become. Paul was Timothy’s teacher, friend, mentor and spiritual authority. Someone who he could learn from. Someone who had walked the paths that Timothy wanted to tread. I would like to ask you sir, “who is […]

‘Where Are The Men’ Series || The Family Dynamics

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Where are the men series

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Where are the men seriesSince I started working on “Prayers For Your Future Husband”, I have been awakened in a whole new way to the cracks that have been left by men in today’s world. This series was triggered out of the need for men to rise up and take their place in the things of God. I remember I and Bolaji were discussing that particular day on her book when ‘where are the men’ popped up. The series popped up for her to share on it and she wrote on it on her blog  (you should totally check out Redefined Masculinity on B’s blog). I wasn’t going to write […]

Where Are the Men Series || Spiritual Authority

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series Where are the men series

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series Where are the men seriesI have been working on my soon to be released book “Prayers for your future husband (Spirit led prayers for the one whose name you don’t know)”. Need the book? There’s an awesome pre-order deal ongoing. See more details HERE   I woke up on Saturday with the words “Spiritual authority” ringing in my head. And during prayers, I remembered something the Bible says that Job did and I went down there. “When the parties were over, Job would get up early in the morning and sacrifice a burnt offering for each of his children, thinking, “Maybe one of them sinned by defying God inwardly.” Job […]

Introducing: ‘Where Are The Men’ Series

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Where are the men series

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Where are the men seriesI am currently working (or trying to work) on my fourth book “Prayers For Your Future Husband (Spirit Led Prayers For The One Whose Name You Don’t Know)’. It will be out God willing in January 2017, as a gift along with our The Women At The Well first book (all ladies, you should absolutely pre-order this package HERE, would be just such a blessing). It is a book that I probably had written ever since June 2016 or so. I wrote it all behind a jotter as I prayed one night. I suddenly had a burden one night to pray for my future husband – from […]

Maximizing Your Potential Series || Enlargement In The Waiting

“That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. WE ARE ENLARGED IN THE WAITING. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us.  But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.” -Romans 8:24&25, MSG   I asked God about “process” in the Kingdom yesterday and what He had to say was enlightening. I had seen someone who just wrote a book and the book was sold out at the book launch – with as much as 10,000 likes on Instagram. And thankfully, I wasn’t asking in envy this time (thank God, the Spirit has been working on this) but I really just wanted to know. […]
