Church Just Isn’t What It Used To Be


I know it probably sounds a bit crazy, considering there's nothing new under the sun, and there isn't anything happening now that has never happened before. But for my short life on earth and for the experiences such life has given me the opportunity to have, church, for me, isn't what it used to be. Church used to be a safe haven. When you're in church, you felt like you were hidden under God's big wings - or at least that's how I felt anyway. The Charleston shooting happened last week Continue Reading

What Does Church Mean To You?


I was born and raised a Catholic. I even went to a Catholic high school in Nigeria (St. Louis College, Jos). When we moved to America, we continued attending Catholic churches. But I have never been fully invested in the Catholic church. I liked (still like) some of their doctrines, but spiritually, I just wasn't connecting. So here in America, my friend, Uju invited me to a Nigerian church once, and I loved a lot of things about it. It wasn't Catholic, and it was full of people who had names I Continue Reading

Does The Bible Really Say, “Touch Not My Anointed?”

What the bible actually says

Well, yes, it really does say it. But in what context? Yesterday, I blogged about Ese Walter and the robust Pastor Biodun, to which my very own Funmie gave us the classic Nigerian response (yes, I'm calling Funmie out here. What are friends for?). Read her comment and my reply. It's the part in capital letters that we're focusing on today.     See, this is part of why I'm suspicious of Pastors. Even when I didn't know much else about the bible, I knew that it said to Continue Reading

My Entire Thoughts On Ese Walter And Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo (And Their Alleged Affair)


The COZA scandal is no longer news, and I rarely blog to give you news anyway. But this scandal is one that keeps on giving. Where is Olivia Pope when you need her? Every time I read an update on this story, I cannot help but wonder, WWOD [What Would Olivia Do?] Be still, Gladiators. Be still. I find it rather interesting that most of the criticism  of this case (whether you're TeamEse or TeamPastor) is that the man in question is a Pastor. What about the fact that the man in question is Continue Reading

Franca E: Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo’s Other Mistress [Allegedly]

Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA

I know I haven't blogged about Ese Walter yet, but I have been - still am - following the story closely. I'll blog about it tomorrow. Meanwhile, there are reports of another mistress called, Franca E. I don't know whether or not this report is true, but this is her story. Read it with a pinch of salt because this might just be someone trying to entertain us. But if it is true that a certain Franca E does exist, and that this is really her story, then we need proof! I should state though Continue Reading

Throwback Thursday: Bless Me Father, For I Have Kissed


This post was originally posted in March 2009, and I find it even more interesting now. Since I cannot commit to putting up an old picture of me every Thursday - not even on Instagram - I can at least put up old posts - not every Thursday though. Enjoy. ______________________________________ … My last kiss was —- well, let’s leave that alone. There is no need to put that on here now, is there? You and I both know the answer. Let’s leave it between me, You, and him. A while ago, I Continue Reading

Give Me A Spouse Or I Die!

Church program: Give me a spouse or I die

My regret is that I did not blog of this event sooner. I knew of it a while ago, but I completely forgot to share it here so that people who are now on the brink of death caused by spouselessness can go to this event. The funny part is that there are people who actually feel this way. And there are people who attended this event ... AND these people said this prayer to God. I can just see it happening. The pastor will say, "Now, say, FATHER!!! GIVE ME A SPOUSE OR I DIE! DON'T ALLOW MY ENEMIES Continue Reading

This One Is For Joe

My Joe Bracelet

Yesterday, Igwe and I went to a new church - Life Source, located on Rossville Boulevard, here in Baltimore, Maryland.  Since we moved, I have been driving past the church, and each time I pass, I feel an inclination to go in there. So I googled them and found their website where I figured out their service time.  9am and 11am. I told Igwe that we had to go, and so we did.  We finally made it there yesterday. It was mixed. Black people. White people. Hispanic people. African people. Asian Continue Reading

So What The Heck Is Scientology?

Tom and Katie

The past week has been buzzing with the news of Katie Holmes filing for a divorce from her husband, Tom Cruise. People have been wondering what happened to their passionate love - the one that had Tom jumping on Oprah's couch.  I didn't ask that question. Not because I know what happened to the love, but because I know that things change sometimes. We don't want them to change, and we can work hard at making them change only for the better. But really, one should not expect him to be jumping on Continue Reading

Are You Looking For A Husband?

Are You Looking For A Husband?

If you are not married, then the answer is yes. Don't even think about it. The only circumstance under which your answer may be no is if you don't want to be married or if you are into women. But even then, if you are into women and you plan on calling your future partner your husband, then I guess you will also say yes to this question. I don't know if husband is what a woman would call her female partner. I'm just grasping at straws here. Don't quote me. Naturally, I have also digressed. The Continue Reading
