Every mother can attest to the fact that, bringing a child to this world is no easy feat and your birth story gives no new meaning to this.
Your dad and I aren’t married for long but reflecting on how we battled with our faith in order to finally have you is a long hard-fought journey in a new light to us. One that is of strength, faith, hope, perseverance, trust and love.
It took prayers and again faith in the Lord to have you here with us. And guess what, even though we were faced with difficulties in taking on this full course, we are glad we did because it all paid off. Let’s not talk about labor experience now, it’s another story for another day🤔
I remember hearing people say to me that, I looked more beautiful with your pregnancy than when I wasn’t pregnant. And even though it sounded sarcastic, deep down within me, I felt blessed and proud.
Your dad always looked at me with awe anytime I struggled to fit into my clothes and the best he could do was to pat me with a faint smile.
You may be small for now but you are one Big wish come true for us. We as your parents can’t thank God enough for this miracle simply because we are extremely blessed beyond favor to have you. And one thing I know for sure is that, you will be well loved and well taken care of as long as we alive.
Your life is not ordinary. It’s filled with signs and wonders. For the hand of the Lord is upon you. He has already filled your life with laughter. You have come with stories to tell. You have come with Testimonies. When I look at you, I can see it. You are full of Testimonies.
It’s your time yes, this is your season. And all I see is Testimonies. And because the Lord is your shepherd, you shall never want.
Welcome to our world of Testimonies. Keep calm cos you’re in save hands.
Love ❤ from Mom & Dad😄😀

I am my own superhero. I barely ask for support from others. Picking up the pieces of life is something I’m honestly good at. It comes with ease and handy. Talk of an independent woman and I’ll be your host. I give things my best shot. Everything I do gets my 100% attention. If I cannot finish, I don’t start at all.
I know what I want in life. Having the guts to take risks in order to find success is what I’m best at. All the same, I cherish honesty and vulnerability too. I believe that, I need to be frank with my strengths and weaknesses and be willing to confront those weaknesses whenever there’s the need to do so. And in order to be real, I need to be honest at all times.
The other interesting thing about me is that, I am a very intense person. I can be hot and cold. Calm and hype. Easy and stringent. I can love hard, live hard, play hard, cry a lot, laugh loud and work hard. Everything about me is intense irrespective of what it is.
I also know my worth and I expect that, whoever I bring to myself should know their worth too. Telling you what to do has never been on my to-do list. Don’t know why, but I just have little tolerance for dumb folks. I respect people and demand respect back. I live my life making sure that, I don’t cross people’s path or cross my limit.
Funnily too, I can read people’s intentions or mind very well even from afar. I can spot a bullshit from a distance. When something isn’t right, I know and it doesn’t take me too long to figure out a lie. From a biblical perspective, I’m gifted with a spirit of discernment.
And from a closer outlook, I’m very good with intimacy. I take very good care of everything that’s close to me. Hardly will you see me bend relationship. I keep my loyalty intact.
Last but not the least, I challenge myself and also encourage others to be their best selves. If there’s anything to vault on, I do so for that one proving ground that only opens onto the next. And I’m never a friend to the lazy because we don’t relate well. Reason being that, we don’t speak the same language. Once I can get the job done, you must as well give it a try too. I don’t really care much about the “how” factor. Just put in an effort, and we can get rolling.
Finally, I love God (so much) and children a lot. Obeying God’s Word is my earthly mandate and I try to live it though not so perfect at it but I try my best. Showing love to everyone especially, children, mothers, the needy and the elderly is my greatest joy.
This is me in person.

I have never proclaimed to have all the answers to Ghana’s problems, but I do have ideas and if you humbly permit me I would like to share one with you. My fear however is how it will be received and the possible repercussions. Although I have since 1996 spoken out about Ghana’s many social ills, including the state of our tourism and creative arts sectors, lately it seems my opinions and views are taken as personal shade! And it saddens me. Anyone who visits the archives of New African Magazine for example will discover that for the 7 years whilst I was a regular columnist, a common and recurring theme in my writings was to highlight an issue in Ghana and offering my ideas.
So please kindly permit me to share an idea I have for the Full Circle Festival which was recently launched in Accra. I share this…

Happy New Year brethren!
2018 has been a backdrop of a very calm yet, fully packed year for me and my family. A year that manage to keep pressures under moderation, which also hauled a heavy losses on other relatives from some unfortunate instances.
Despite this, my underwriting gratitude to God can’t upheld the fact that, the Almighty has been gracious to me and my family, showing His goodness in mitigating exposure.
There is still plenty to be achieved in the evolution of 2019. And as we end one, we are also being ushered into another with great expectations, enthusiasm and I see next year lined up with many successes and great achievements.
So at this point, I desire to take this opportunity to wish you and your families’ joy, warm memories and peace. And till we see each other in 2019, do well to be thankful for what you have, and remember to embrace your loved ones and be grateful for the feeling of having them around and close.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year, filled with success, happiness and good health.
Eventually, I gathered courage to read this book last night and guess what, I sobbed all night. Sleeping was far from fetched but God ultimately gave me sleep.
Even with that, I woke up this morning to this hallucination called “Reality”. Truly, this life is not our own. For all the things we have to be thankful for, good health should be one of them because it’s key.
And like Herophilus stated, when “Health” is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be applied. Even family becomes helpless.
The family did all they could, Nicole on the other hand fought all she could, even her faith in God was tested at every step of her treatment, so much that, she learned to give thanks for both the good and odd moments. Her story is proof that, God is indeed, the final say.
Trust me if I say this, Nicole shouldn’t have died after all she’s been through. The least compensation she could have gotten was the gift of life (a second chance to life). But like the book of Proverbs rightly puts it, man proposes but God disposes.
God did what He thought was right, we can only be thankful. We thank God for her 14years of life and pray He keeps us (the living) in good health always.
Lesson learned: Anytime you pray, ask for forgiveness of sin and also for a good health. For there’s more to life than we know.
