Picture This…

Picture this. You are on your way home.  As you get close to your home, you notice cars parked along the road. A lot of cars.  You see some leaves on the road, and you just know this is a sign of gloom. You slow down. Fear grips you.  You wonder what is going on.  […]

How are you, really? (Guest Post)

Hi, I’m Rachel. Welcome to my spontaneous talk (read) session. First of all, how are you? How are you doing and how are things going? Pretend there is a poll and you had the option of choosing either “great” or “hanging in there.” If you’re doing great, I hope you continue doing great and if […]

5 Things You Can Do in the Wait

Some few weeks ago, in the AM hours, I was up and struggling to find sleep. What better way to spend my time than to go on social media to do… well, I don’t know, check updates? I was only going to be a few minutes, but I ended up going through a lot of […]

Lessons From a Crying Baby

I have a three year-old niece who I’ve gotten so close to the past few months. She is the cutest, sweetest little darling. We usually sleep in the same room, and she wakes up every morning with a sleepy “good morning” before she goes into the kitchen, asking for some tea. Today, I was doing […]

Your Voice Matters

I’ve been into singing since I was very young. Most people don’t know this, but I started singing at weddings when I was barely 13 years old. So I was in various bands with people who were way older than me. Sometimes, there would be some problem. When I tried to suggest a solution, the […]

My Struggle with Depression

Last year, I hit a low. It all started with a “we regret to inform you” email that crushed me. You know those opportunities you apply for and in your heart, you convince yourself you got it… I didn’t get any of them. So I didn’t take it very well. I spent my days in […]

Life Currently (February 2020)

A happy new year to you! (Is it too late? Pffft there are no rules to this, receive my new year greeting with glee please). I’m hoping 2020 has started with a great big bang. How are we doing with the resolutions? Kapena that’s an area we shouldn’t even talk about? Tiyamba za serious later? […]

Correction

I’ll make this as brief as I can, hoping it doesn’t sound preachy. This is all drawn from my own experience, and I thought it might help some Christian out there. OK, here goes: I was born and raised in the Message of the Hour. I have ever talked about how the devil convinced me […]
