Disguised Fire

He was not going to church as often as he used to. He had good fellowship with some Christian friends but he kind of caught up with busy life and became a stranger to them and the things of God.

Then little by little, he prayer-time turned from one hour to five minutes. He knows that he is a good looking guy who attracts any woman in his vicinity. At times he blamed his look for finding himself in bed with a number of women he didn’t even know their full names. He swore to God and himself never to have sex with a woman before marriage but he didn’t seem to be able to stick it out. Continue reading Disguised Fire

The Heart of a Child

I was writing one beautiful story to share with you all tomorrow, if it is God’s will.

Then something caught my attention for me to stop what I was writing and started writing this.

So, all our kids went to bed while Berhan and I stayed in the kitchen, catching up with our emails and everything else. Then our little one came down and said, “Mom, I’m still waiting for you to pray for me.” Continue reading The Heart of a Child

Beyond the Fairytale

It would be an understatement if I say, “I’m excited”.

Didn’t I tell you all last time that the title, “Beautiful Cinderella” of my book didn’t pass the scrutiny of the editors? Well, here comes the new title they came up with, the one I literally, instantly fall in love with, the one I gave two thumbs up to:

“ Beyond the Fairytale,

with a subtitle:

“An Appeal for Sexual Purity.” Continue reading Beyond the Fairytale

Marriage and Dating are Different for Men

Marriage is very different from dating. Dating has some sort of excitement to it almost every day. It is sweet and makes life bearable. Especially for a girl who stole a man’s heart, it is a blast. She may sometimes feel that she is flying on the air. She easily embraces herself as the most beautiful and attractive person ever created on this planet earth.

When she ignores him, he texts her five hundred “I love you” and “I’m so sorry” messages and she continues ignoring him, just to receive more romantic messages. Continue reading Marriage and Dating are Different for Men

A Prayer of A Wife to Her Husband

Thank You, LORD, for giving me another day to come to You in prayer. May Your Name be blessed forever!

I have received many good and perfect gifts from You, LORD.

Above all the gifts, LORD Jesus, You gave me Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for me on the Cross so I might live for You. Jesus, You became sin for me so I might be God’s righteousness. Thank You, Lord Jesus! Continue reading A Prayer of A Wife to Her Husband

What is on your table?

It was around September of 2009. I was reading one of the daily devotional Bible study materials I used to receive via email. And I ran into an interesting article and I read it and at the end, it read, “if you want to sign up for a 40 weeks long daily Bible study note, give us your email”.

I signed up. “I mean, what do I lose? If I don’t like it, I will “unsubscribe”. That is all.” I thought to myself. Continue reading What is on your table?

Having People Over Us

Early on in our marriage, I used to pack my stuff to go back to Ethiopia for every little conflict I had with Berhan.

You see, we were the first ones to talk about getting married among our friends. We got married and we were all alone. No married people were around to guide or mentor us. Not only from our friends but we were the first ones to get married from our siblings, from his side and my side. Yeah, can you just imagine! Continue reading Having People Over Us
