Give thanks to the LORD

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
His love endures forever.
(Psalm 136:1)

Wow! Yes God is good and His love endures forever!

Here we’re given another new day, another opportunity, to give all praises, glories and honors to Him alone.

So beloved, let’s gather together in the house of the LORD with our friends and families to give thanks to Him alone. ///

Question About VOA came Up in the middle of the Interview

As you all know, My Berhan and I are planning to celebrate the Valentine’s Day this weekend. So we’re getting ready to head out to Baltimore to take part in “the Weekend to Remember Getaway” for married couples with the Family Life Today Ministry folks ( I can’t tell you how excited I’m. I’m a bit spent so it will be a good opportunity for me to relax. Continue reading Question About VOA came Up in the middle of the Interview

The Shortest Sermon

“Womanhood” was the title of my teaching I prepared to deliver last Sunday in the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Atlanta. But as I told you last time, God had another message for His people and He took over the program.

Oh, let Him take all our future programs! I love it when He does!

So, the Sunday morning service sermon was interview! Pastor Tolossa interviewed me about my ministry and the pervasive nature of sexual immorality. After that, he gave me the mic and asked me to say few things for four or five minutes.

I thought I spoke for two minutes. Well, I guess I spoke for almost 12 minutes. I watched this program yesterday and find it to be very concise but to the point. I loved it. I am sure you will love it too. Listen to it carefully so that you won’t miss the main message! ///

The User’s Manual

There was a two hour school delay today because of the snow. So, I just came back home after I dropped off my kids to school.

While I was driving my youngest kids to school, I noticed the annoying warning yellow light being flashing on my dashboard. The sign looks like a screwdriver. I didn’t know what it was but I saw this light in the past, probably three times. But every time I see those different lights flashing on, I tell my hubby saying “I think there is something wrong with my car.”

My sons always ask me, “What is this light mom?” Continue reading The User’s Manual

Let Your Child Live!

Abortion stops a heartbeat of a human being God created in His own image and likeness; a human being God said, “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.” Jeremiah 1:5.

Don’t put your baby to death! Don’t let them take away your child from you. It is the devil who says, “Get rid of of the baby so that your life will be better.”

It is a lie! Your life won’t be better after you shade innocent blood. You may make a mistake and sleep outside marriage but God doesn’t make a mistake. It is God who brings a human being to this planet with plan and purpose; not sex. Let your child live! ///

Winner of the Valentine’s Day Game

Wow! Guys! Thank you so much for waiting for me this long! I was expecting somebody to inbox me saying, “When are you going to announce the winner?”

Well, I’m in the middle of being everywhere if you know what I mean.

I had a wonderful time at the Atlanta Pastor Tolossa church. It was kind of a miracle today for all of us. Oh, I love when the Holy Spirit takes over the service and does His own thing. I love Him! I love Him! I love Him! Continue reading Winner of the Valentine’s Day Game

Back to Snowy and Rainy Maryland!


Glad to be back to Maryland even if Maryland is covered with black ice! Yeah, that is how Maryland rolls these days!

After staying in Las Vegas for the weekend with a weather ranging from 74 to 76 degree, I was very disappointed yesterday afternoon to find myself in Maryland with freezing point weather.

I had a wonderful time with the Ethiopian Christian Fellowship Church folks at Las Vegas! Continue reading Back to Snowy and Rainy Maryland!

“Fifty Shades Trilogy”

What is it? It is a series of three erotic romance novels! They are called: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

I am not sure if you already heard my message I gave on the Berea teleconference last Saturday or a week earlier. But if you did, you should have heard me mentioning these books. Well, I said few words about these books in the context of parenting; so that parents would save their daughters from these novels.

Well, today I want to warn everybody about these novels because a movie is made on the Fifty Shades of Grey and it coming out in theaters across America on a day before the Valentine’s Day.

The trilogy has only three years of history. That means the trilogy came out within three years time frame. Within these three years, it won the market in a way that made it second to the Bible by the number of sell (100 million copies are sold so far). Can you just imagine what that means?
