I always kiss and hug my kids in the morning. They all know this morning tradition and go with the flow even if they sometimes don’t appreciate it that much. Don’t blame them. Two of them are not morning people. But they know that they have no choice but to kiss and hug their mama in the morning. Continue reading Hug Tight those – – –
Thousands and thousands of people are losing their marriages because of social media, mainly Facebook. If we are social media users, our marriages can’t be immune from this problem either. So, when we use social media, we need to be cautious and vigilant all the time.

Many young people are dropping me their questions saying, “We got it! We now understand that all those mini-sex acts (kissing, touching, cuddling, petting and all) are not good for us before marriage. They push us to do what we vowed not to do; which is sex before marriage. The problem is, we’ve been practicing mini-sex acts since day one that it seemed impossible for us to stop now. We keep falling short of our promises we made to one another. What should we do?” Continue reading Want to do Dating Right
“The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.” Proverbs 22:3
Sometimes in the middle of counseling, I ask this question, “So, who do you want to be in the next 10 years or so?”
The response I always get is something like, “I want to be a person who loves and serves God and others with everything I am and with everything I have.”
So, my follow-up question is, “So, what are you doing today to get there then?”
Why am I asking that? Well, for all the counseling sessions to be effective and fruitful, the person I am counseling primarily needs to know that there is what is called “the law of sowing and reaping.” Knowing this fact will help the person change his/her course or direction of life for good!

In my yesterday’s post, “I made a covenant with my eyes,” I see that one particular paragraph seemed to throw some people off.
If I’m not mistaken, “If a woman chooses to go half or fully naked” seems to be the one which created some confusion, or I will say, misunderstanding, to what I was trying to communicate. So, I want to clarify that today.
Well, my intention when I wrote yesterday’s post was to shine the light on the main source of sexual immorality which is a lustful heart. While I did that, I concurrently wanted to address one common excuse I usually hear from some men: “I would control my eyes if the women wear appropriately.” Continue reading Is Modesty Optional for women?
“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.” (Job 31:1)
How can a young man resist the urge to look and lust after a cute girl? He can’t; but the spirit in him can enable him.

Most husbands struggle to say – – –
– – – “I’m sorry.”
Why? Well, one reason is that they don’t see their fault as clearly as their wives see it. So, acknowledging their faults by saying “I’m sorry” when in fact they believe they didn’t do anything wrong would be the most unreasonable and absurd thing for them to do. So, they refuse to say it.
The other simple reason is, they just don’t want to say “I’m sorry” because they are not accustomed to saying that simple statement before they got married. Continue reading Most husbands struggle to say – – –
The Word of God commands us to do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ:
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17)
What does “in the name of the Lord Jesus” mean? The meaning is found in 1 Corinthians 10:31:
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
So, going to church has to be done for the glory of God, to bring glory and fame to God. The moment we lose this focus, we tend to attach going to church with our feelings and emotions. The problem with that is, our unstable feelings and emotions won’t always encourage us to go to church but to stay home and watch sermon on TV. ///
I heard about the wedding of a virgin couple the same week they got married here in the city I live in. Today one of my Facebook friends sent me the interview they gave to “Good Day” Fox 5 and I want to share it with you all.
What shook the social media was not their virginity but “the certificate of virginity” the bride presented to her father, Pastor Mike Freeman, on her wedding day.
