    You’ve Ruined My Day!

    Wow! We give so much power to other people. A fellow human being has the power to control whether we have a good or bad day? Really? “You’ve ruined my day” is something I used to say to my husband all the time. I would wake up in the morning and the determination on whether or not I would have a day full of positive vibes, energy, passion and joy would be based on whether Mr Chiwoko and I had had a disagreement. If we DID have a disagreement, then that would be it. BAD day decreed, declared and received. Didn’t matter what plans I had for the rest of the day, I would approach…

    Walk Out Of Your Dead End Relationship Without Repentance

    The title alone gives the indication that this is some sort of ‘Power to the Women’ type of article. And in a way I guess it is – but not in any form of coalition to the feminism movement agenda – no, I am very much in favour of the biblical set up for men and women.  However, this article IS about women being empowered; and loving themselves enough to know that their desire to be in a relationship should not drive them into relinquishing their precious God-given time to just any man who shows interest for now but has no plan for a committed future – as in marriage.…

    How To Revive Your Sex Life

    Sex sex sex sex sex! Praise the Lord for SEX! Of all the ideas the Lord had, sex is one many of us are very grateful for. Hahaha. A gift to marriage, sex is the highest level of physical intimacy a couple can share. It’s a subject we all need to talk about more but most of us shy away from. We also think that once we get married and are completely free to have as much sex as we could possibly manage we’ll be swinging from the chandeliers having exciting passionate love-making sessions every single day and loving it! And there are couples that have it like that. They enjoy a healthy sex…

    Let It Slide, Keep Smiling, Maintain Peace In Your Marriage

    I’m not trying to win every fight. I’m trying to win the success of my marriage. And if that means letting some things go, not always having the final word and sometimes just agreeing to disagree then so be it. I don’t need to win every fight anymore because I’m in this for the long haul. I’ve got my sights set on the prize of a marriage filled with understanding, peace and friendship. The problem with trying to ‘win’ every fight or even just fighting until someone wins (there are no real winners in a fight between husband and wife) is that in the process people get hurt, and some…

    He Gave Me Love Overdose

    It’s true…Mr Chiwoko likes to spoil me. And obviously I don’t have a problem with it at all! Who would? The other day I was sitting at my dressing table – a beautiful old solid oak desk with draws and bronze handles that my husband lovingly restored and converted into an elegant white dressing table for me. As I sat there about to commence on my beauty regime, I noticed that my perfume collection was quickly depleting. And I’m just one of those kind of girls that likes a little choice when it comes to her fragrances.   So I reported this to Mr Chiwoko. “Babe, I’m really running low on perfume and you…

    Face The Pain of the Reality

    Your spouse has cheated on you. It’s a betrayal and a dishonour to your marriage. Regardless of the reasons, who with, where and how – the fact is it has happened and you have to face that truth. It’s not a dream nor a nightmare. It’s a fact, and no brushing over it is going to change that. You can’t ignore it or pretend it never happened because the consequences of the betrayal will eat away at you and your marriage until you are forced to face it head-on. It is better to face the pain of the reality now. Anger, hurt, confusion, disappointment, anguish…. As you face the pain…

    Most women have a ‘dream wedding’ in mind; whether it be a fairy tale wedding or your minimalistic wedding. Well neither of these have to break the bank.

    My Morning Routine For Success

    I always get questions on how I manage to run a business, ministry and family without losing my mind. Well let me tell you, I’ve been close to losing it a few times. BUT GOD! No seriously, God created a woman. We are amazingly strong. He gave us a special grace for capacity when it’s required. Here’s what my mornings look like. 1. You can’t achieve much in bed.

    Was It All In My Head?

    It sucks when you’ve been dating (not officially together) someone for a few months, and then he falls off the face of the earth. A few months later, he resurfaces with a full-blown relationship and maybe even an engagement. You are left wondering why her and not me? What is it about me? Was it all in my head? Anger Now you’re angry. Angry at him for playing with your heart, for not telling you what he was feeling, for stringing you along all those months, for not ‘gently’ letting you down. You’re angry at her for being chosen. Angry at yourself for allowing this man to get inside your…
