36 Lessons I picked From 'War Room' (2015 Movie)

Who hasn't seen this movie?! Why?! War Room is a movie that every single lady should see. Scrap that. It is a movie that every married woman should see. Scrap that. It's a movie that every Christian should see! 

Lessons From 'War Room'


The first time I saw 'War Room', I replayed it. Blessedly, it was sent to me via a flashdrive. I loved love this movie. ('Love' because I am still loving it). I've even lost count of the number of times I've seen it. It appears every time I see this movie, I discover something new.

RELATIONSHIP: When You Feel Like You Are All Alone In This World

We have all been there, you know . . . those moments when you just break down. There is so much being thrown at us on a daily basis; work, friends, family, love . . . . sometimes it’s just too much. And this feeling can overwhelm us.

Feeling Alone?


I get so caught up in my own thoughts about things, that I am not able to see the bigger picture and I get brought into this negative world of things that are wrong with me. I constantly think about what I need to change, or why things happen and frequently find myself asking, “What is wrong with me?”

Life is full of uncertainty, we've just got to learn to live with it. This was what happened yesterday.

Nothing Achieved


The day started on a good note.

Prayed.

Wrote out my to-do list.

It Is Wicked Not To Be Fruitful

I love the Bible for many reasons. One reason is because the Bible can be read metaphorically and understood literally. 

The Bible often uses the metaphor of fruit to describe the produce of our lives. If your life bears no fruit, you are regarded as wicked

The Call To Be Fruitful


To be fruitful is to be able to show progress in your career, your relationship/marriage, academic pursuit, business and of course your walk with God.

What I Wore: Choke The Neck And Go Off The Shoulder

Hey sweeties! How are you doing? I hope you are fabulous and basking in the glory of God. The year seems to get better for me. I am awed by God and the things He does IN me. 

Off The Shoulder


One perk of being a freelance presenter is being free to wear (mostly) whatever I want—instead of “official outfit” like button-downs and skirts/trousers, I can indulge a sudden craving for frilly vintage clothes, denims, or even use headwraps. Anything goes!

BOOK: The Leadership Challenge By James Kouzes & Barry Posner

In my opinion, this book is a bible of leardership. I am looking for a means to get a copy for myself. The one I'm holding isn't mine. (Even though I'm silently hoping Ayo, my friend would ask me to keep it).

The Leadership Challenge


I borrowed this book to read but I am prompted to share my thoughts on it and to recommend it.

RELATIONSHIP: How To Keep Trusting Even When You're Hurt

When the Bible says, "the just shall live by faith", that sure includes having faith in our relationships. It takes faith to let a person into our life. Don't you think so?

70+ Reasons Behind My Smile

Someone said to me; "Amaka, I love your smiles". I had to process that statement for a while because my teeth are not-so-white. What exactly is about my smile? Lol. In as much as I'm unsure if that should be taken as a compliment, I'd like to simply take it as one. I've got a beautiful smile. :)

70+ Reasons Behind My Smile


I believe the simple act of smiling does far more than making you look friendly and approachable. It can change your life and the lives of those around you. It is a positivity booster.

3 Things You Should Know Before You Quit Your Job To Chase Your Dreams

This past week has been one of the best weeks of my life. It's been like living in a fairytale world. I've literally seen my "little" dreams come true right before my beautiful eyes. It's been dramatic.

However, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think I made a mistake quitting my job.

Before Chasing The Dream


I had a nice, well-paying administrative job with a thriving company. It provided a relaxed team atmosphere in which I worked with respected, cooperative colleagues. My office was not too far from home, I pretty much spent not more than N300 (Three Hundred Naira) daily on transport — yet, I was miserable and dreaded going to work after spending close to two years there.
