The Counsellor

A couple of weeks ago and at the beginning of summer, I was privileged to attend an introductory course in Counselling and Psychotherapy, with a focus on Psychoanalysis. Prior to attending the course, I could say I had some idea about counseling in general, but going on the course helped me solidify some of the […]

What is in it for Me?

Many a times we ask the question above in relation to a venture or a cause before we commit ourselves to it. This is because we want to be sure that it will be worth our while or our investment in the long run. We also ask this question at an unconscious level at the […]

Fatherhood by Design

Becoming a father can certainly happen by default, so long as the right ingredients for making babies are present, however I’ve come to discover that the successful raising of children cannot happen by default, but by intentional efforts of both fathers and mothers. Despite the notion that good and absent fathers are scarce in today’s […]

When life doesn’t make sense… excerpts from a new devotion coming soon

At one point or another, every human being will face obstacles and challenges in their lives, and usually in those moments, life ceases to make sense, or so it seems at least. It may present as a loss of a loved one, the loss of a marriage or long term relationship, career or other personal […]

14 Things that Love is

In this month of love, I felt it necessary to focus on what love is. As we were celebrating Valentines’ day and I observed the attitudes of people and businesses towards that one day dedicated to celebrating love, I thought it was worthwhile reminding myself and every other person who will get to read this […]

In my view, we are becoming a generation of people with confusing ideologies. Once upon a time, […]

The Power of a Story

We’ve all heard stories (good or bad), in our toddler years, early school years or read one in a magazine. Stories are a regular part of our existence. To me, stories, just like love, makes the world go round. We tell stories and are told stories about others and events. God loves stories, as He […]

Stranded People

If you’ve ever experienced a car break down in the middle of the night, in a remote part of an unfamiliar city, and with a dead phone, you may slightly understand the meaning of the word stranded. If you’ve ever got on a faulty train that has had to stop due to technical difficulties, but […]

My Domestic Abuse Alert

For the last week and a half, I have been thinking about a recent domestic abuse incident, particularly one in which a woman with two children was beaten and left dead by her husband. This incident and the media response, including all the interventions that a lot of wonderful and good people out there have […]
