Mary Slessor – Lessons from a Queen indeed

0 Shares

Mary Slessor is a true heroine and her impact was felt throughout south-eastern Nigeria. Many think all her work was focused on Calabar but that’s far from the truth. Although stationed in Calabar she moved to different areas and as a result killing of infant twins was wiped out all over the south eastern Nigeria.  In fact I only  recently learned that a friend’s mum and her twin brother from Abba in Anambra State were hidden for months to escape death until Mary’s influence came to bear. One striking thing about Mary was that she preached the Gospel in an endearing way – […]

Family love: Immediate and Beyond

2 Shares

In this month of February, the emphasis is on romantic love – but one form of love that is often overlooked is “Phileo”, brotherly love. This is the kind of love that is common amongst families; kith and kin. Sadly, with the rural-urban drift and modernization, the bond and love that once existed within the extended family structure seems to be weakening, and this is having negative effects on the nuclear family as well. You hear of children who have never met some their aunts and uncles, and the traditional “going home for Christmas” has now faded away for many. There is, however, […]

Janine Udogu is a Swiss national married to a Nigerian man. While inter-racial marriages are not new what struck me about Janine is her love for her husband’s culture and how she has integrated so seamlessly. This love for her husband and his culture inspired her to learn Igbo language which is no mean feat as well other aspects of the Igbo culture. From this mother of three one can learn that doggedness and determination will always yield fruit and that true love had no boundaries. Read and be inspired. Janine please tell us about yourself, how you grew up and your […]

Happy New Year! Have you set your goals for 2018?

0 Shares

Setting goals is an activity that has become synonymous with the New Year, but in reality we should set goals year round. Well-defined goals are imperative as they help us focus our energy in the right direction. If for any reason you didn’t  set any goals for 2017 or were not able to achieve all that you set don’t despair – there’s always time to set new ones. Besides, like a friend says plans are like scripts which can guide but shouldn’t be too rigid that they can never be adjusted. While I can’t say I have been able to achieve every goal I set […]
