Dear woman, know God by yourself to avoid mental torture and emotional blackmail.

Sometimes last year, I watched a video which went viral. In that video  a church was holding a women only meeting . It was time for questions and a woman stood up and narrated her marital ordeal. She talked about how her husband smokes, gets drunk and exhibited all sorts of destructive attitudes. She said he was also jobless and beats her up at every slightest opportunity.

Let’s talk about house chores

House shared is a key to a good and healthy marriage.

By house chores we mean a job or a piece of work that is often boring and unpleasant  in the house but needs to be done according to Cambridge English Dictionary.
It includes cleaning the bathroom , cooking, vacuuming/sweeping, washing dishes, laundry etc.
I believe if as a single girl or boy you are expected to do your chores and you did before marriage, doing it with your partner should be your joy. Leaving house chores for your wife alone to do to me shows a sign of irresponsibility. Sharing chores in your own home doesn’t take anything tangible away from anyone. If as a single man, the only reason you want to get married is because you need a woman to hand over all the house chores for, then you need a maid and not a wife.

HOUSE CHORES, WHOSE CALL?

Collins dictionary define house chores as tasks such as cleaning, washing and ironing  that have to be done regularly at home.  Simply put, house chores are routine work we do at home.

Over the years, a lot of argument for and against whose duty it is to handle house chores have been discussed among the millennials. In most developed nations, there seems to be a balance on who handles what.  However, in Africa a lot of ladies born in the 70’s downward believes that house chores is not “Her Job” but “Our job” while those born in the 60’s upward tends to tilt toward the existing tradition of house chores being “her job”.

Let’s talk about house chores

I am Olayinka Fiola   and I hate house chores.

Each time I go to my aunt’s  place I always admire how spic and span her house is, she could open her door for you even in her sleep without fidgeting on how you might assess her, her house is always so neat and orderly that I wonder how she does it.  I later realised that she is able to keep that level of neatness in her home because  she doesn’t have a toddler and a preschooler like me, her children are all grown.

Having to do house chores with toddlers in tow is very hard and  physically consuming, especially if you do it all alone. This has led to the sickness and untimely death of many women. Continue reading

Let’s talk about house chores

The home is made up of the man, woman and their children(if there is any). The word ‘house chore’  comes from a combination of two separate words (house and chore). Since the home is made up of both sexes, why then do we limit chores to females (girls,ladies, women)?
Every inhabitant of the home is supposed to be responsible for the chores, which must not leave out anyone. Continue reading

IT’S OK TO SAY NO! WRITTEN BY IBUKUN MO BRIDALS KOMOLAFE

Freedom is beautiful. A little mistake can take away that beauty.

Let me tell you a story:
I met an eloquent young lady in her twenties. She is brilliant, smart and deeply detailed. But how much expression can she give to these qualities from a prison? Continue reading

Today’s Woman-Article written by Oluwatoyin Aremu.

Who exactly is a woman, is she really a weaker vessel as generally said? The society has somehow made many women forget how treasured they are simply because they are described as being a weaker vessel. Weaker vessel in the context of 1Pet. 3:7 does not mean intellectual weakness, physical weakness, or spiritual weakness I must say.  It only means women are wired more emotionally than the men, and they long for care, Deborah in Judges 4 was a woman and she led Israel for 40 years even going to battle front; Mary Slessor was also a woman, I am also a woman by His grace.

Today’s Woman by Kehinde Familoni-Faleye

My name is Kehinde Familoni-Faleye, wife of Oluwadare Faleye, mother of A&A, two beautiful damsels.

I AM TODAYS WOMAN.

My slogan is I AM Number 1….. Setting the pace and striking a balance

Making your beautiful self number 1 made no sense to me while growing up, I rather thought not putting yourself first is the height of selflessness and the best practice for a good woman and a dutiful wife in making, I wished my mama had modeled it more for me to understand (God bless and keep her) I have asked myself many times why the church teachings was not balanced on it, I wonder why our society frowns when a woman is to be number 1.

TODAY’S WOMAN AND HER RIGHTS

TODAY’S WOMAN AND HER RIGHTS

Women’s rights are more than words in paper. That which makes human beings human, their inherent dignity and nobleness is neither male nor female. All human beings are born free and equal.”

Yet, there is little being said, too few conversations, and too little action, to stop violence against girls and women. Girls and young women around the world experience physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and financial violence and abuse. Continue reading

Today’s Woman

Today’s woman should not be afraid to launch out and show the world that entirely she’s got. She is a strong woman who has basic and fundamental understanding of all that God has deposited in her. She is bold and self-assured, pushing through odds to achieve great things. A today’s woman is a confident woman. She is not afraid to make mistakes, yet she goes a step further to use her own mess as a message for others.   Continue reading
