This should be fun!

NEWS: God be praised! New Ebola Cases Drop to Lowest Level in 7 Months

Yes, Nigeria was declared free from Ebola. (Read here) Don't be scared. We are still free. *smiles*


But you know, Nigeria being free from the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), doesn't exactly mean it no longer exist. It does.

PODCAST: How to Find Beauty in Brokenness

It crashed on the floor, breaking into two. Beyond repair. My glasses. "I should have been more careful" I said to myself. Ever felt that way? Broken. Shattered. Tossed aside. Or thrown away.

Here is the truth, you are never beyond repair. The scars, wounds, lines, they all have stories to tell. Brokenness gives us the inspiration to live.

Rays of pain. . .



This is apparently the longest podcast on Heart Rays so far. Mehn, I didn't know what to cut out. Just had to leave it that way. To listen, click on the play button. The play button is the red round button on the top left corner of the embed player.

What Makes a Woman Sexy and Beautiful from Hair to Shoes, Clothes to Make-up?

This morning, I had a little challenge with picking up what to wear to work. (Actually, that's a daily affair. Lemme not talk about how many times I try a dress over and over. Phew!) 

None of my clothes seemed appealing to me at that time. "I just want to look beautiful" I murmured to myself. Well, thank God I didn't step out naked sha. Hehehehe. . .


So this question popped up in my head:
What makes a woman sexy and beautiful from hair to shoes, clothes to Make-up?

NEWS: Church of England gets First Female Bishop

Ok, I'm not so sure if this is some good news. *blink* but at least, it is quite interesting.


Libby Lane becomes the Church of England's first female bishop yesterday! Despite entrenched opposition from traditionalists, who say that the clergy's top rung is no place for a woman.

POEM: Awake and Dreaming



My eyes see the pictures
They do not want to be closed
As sharp as razor blades
Piercing into my heart
They can see my heart
Or is my heart that sees them?
It's uncertain which part it is
But somewhere from the inside
I can't stop myself from dreaming.

POEM: I am a Christian

Happy Sunday! Hope you went to church. What was the topic and Bible text of the sermon/ministration in your church today? My pastor preached on Divine Positioning. Bible Text: Eph. 1: 18-21.


It was an awesomely spirit-lifting message.  Being a Christian gives us the power to create, to overcome and to possess. Are you a Christian?

Mirror, mirror on the Wall, Who is the Most Confident of them all?

My previous post talks about Happiness. Here, it is about CONFIDENCE. I'm guessing it will be an era of emotions on subsequent posts for few more days. Yep! Emotions - the energy in motion.

Building Confidence


Emotions create the atmosphere surrounding our heart. This is a more reason why we need to focus our minds only on positive emotions.

Happiness is so Underrated

Ahan! Life is not as complicated as we sometimes allow it to be. We need to calm down o! Can you imagine? Someone asked me: "Amaka, how are you?" I answered, with the most beautiful smile ever, "I'm fine." The next thing the person said was, "Aha! You look really happy. What happened? Has he proposed yet?" Mtchwwww!



Biko, what is happiness? Happiness is a state of being happy. Being happy is a positive emotional state of mind. It is a decision to be in that state.

It's official, I'm a fan of Linda Ikeji. . . No Pretence!

Hello friends! It's Monday. Happy New Week! Hope your weekend was fab? For me, last weekend, I was talking about the #NoSexTillMarriage hashtag. And about 75% of my small community made jest of it. Can't you guys do without sex ni? Smh. Anyway, that is not the issue right now.

STYLE: 4 Harmattan-inspired Fashion Tips

Harmattan is a cold, dry and dusty weather that dulls and bores up everything. (Lemme not even talk about seeing dust on my shoes every five minutes after cleaning them up *sighs*) It has a way of telling me again and again that my body is made from dust. Like seriously.


The main issue is combating with the dry cold. I discovered a bit of struggle in trying to get something out of my wardrobe that prevents cold as well as fulfill my desire to look trendy, stylish and chic. I mean fashionable clothes which are suitable for the weather.

*clears throat* I'm happy to say I got few ideas on how to stay warm and stylish :)

Are these Politicians Angry?

I do not want to sound all religious, but I have this article circling around a Bible passage I read some days ago. If you do not think politics is spiritual as well as physical, then you shouldn't read any further. OK?


Are these politicians angry? Even if they are, what are they angry about?

Yay! We made it through another year. God has indeed been faithful. It is by His mercy that we are not consumed. Oh *sings* Dis kain God o.... I never see your type o... Dis kain God o... Blessed be your holy name...


2014 was amazing! I got a wonderful job, started blogging, made gorgeous friends, received answers to prayers and so much more! I'd have loved to share my testimonies. But I realized I would not be able to number them accordingly. So I decided to share the few lessons I learnt from the mistakes I had made in the past twelve months. You know, 
mistakes offer us chances to learn and grow. I see these lessons as a building up for 2015.
