Have you had that talk with your child? Yes, about the birds and the bees?

Some Christian parents do not think it is necessary to talk about the birds and the bees when their children come of age. They think the children should only know Bible stories. Trust me, if you are one of such parents, you are living in a dream world.

By the way, "The Birds and the Bees" is an English-language idiomatic expression and euphemism that refers to courtship and sexual intercourse. The "Birds and the Bees talk" (sometimes known simply as "The Talk" is generally the event in most children's lives in which the parents explain what sexual relationships are.

Why should a Christian Couple get a divorce based on irreconciliable differences?

It just struck me as odd that some Christian couples would get a divorce based on "irreconciliable differences". 

I then tried to get to get some information about this term. 

Wikipedia says "Any sort of difference between two parties that either cannot or will not be changed can be considered irreconcilable differences. A difference could be that of a difference in character, personality, belief, or some other personality trait."

Here is another definition - "The existence of significant differences between a married couple that are so great and beyond resolution as to make the marriage unworkable."

I then pondered on the fact that two Christians have decided that there are differences that are so great that they decided to part ways and get a divorce.

3 Things You Shouldn't Do After A Break-Up

Some of us are lucky at love while others are not so lucky.

As clever as some of these suggestions are, you need no soothsayer to tell you these kinds of advice are tainted. This is because Mr Right is a fluid concept. The one that is perfect for me may be wrong for someone else.

I don’t intend to make this post about philosophies. Trust me, it is far from what I intended.

I am really more concerned about what happens after a supposed beautiful relationship collapses. Do you wallow in the pit of self-pity or you pick yourself up in a bid to announce to the world that you are doing just fine?

Better still, do you allow

I'll Kill For My Wife: 4 important Marriage Tips From Pastor Adeboye

Experience, they say is the best teacher. When people with experience speak, the wise thing to do is to bring out our notepads and jot away.

Who would you rather be hanging out with? Your Spouse or Your Friends?

I was at a wedding ceremony over the weekend and as the the bride was about to conclude her speech about her new profile as a married woman, she looked at the groomsmen and said "Sorry guys, my husband will not be available for your late nights, he will always be with me".

Though a lot of people in the congregation laughed, I could see a bit of concern on some of faces of the groomsmen because they knew that this lady was indeed serious.

This brings me to the subject of my post today. 

Who would you rather be hanging out with? Your Spouse or Your Friends?

When you are single, you do  hang out with your friends, your buddies. However when you get married, this has to change.

Have Faith Like A Child's : A Mother's Testimony

The beauty of being a child isn’t in having no cares in the world. It isn’t about how youthful one looks.

The beauty of being a child lies in the uncorrupted sense of wonder. The ability to genuinely rely on God and trust that He would do what He says he would do.

Circumstances, sometimes make us over rationalise things. We find ourselves putting God in the box of our own limitations. We recite the 'Give us our daily bread' without really thinking that God is capable of doing it.

Being wired to rely on structures and the works of our hands isn’t bad on its own. Afterall God created us to be thinking beings but the reliance on
