Happy mother’s day!

I just read this amazing story here on the daily mail website..



It is a story about a hen,Mabel who is mothering a littre of pups.Mabel notices that pups need a mother’s warmth and jumps right in their basket to keep them warm.Their mother,Nestle pays no attention to her babies but Mabel who is just one year old  steps in and adopts them.


I don’t think  Mabel thinks she is a dog or that the pups are chickens.I think  she knows that motherhood is not only about mothering your own children.It is about giving warmth and love to children who need you,whether they are yours or not.

This post is honouring all the Mabels in the world.To the women who don’t any children of their own and have mothered children at any point in their lives..Motherhood is not about the number of children you have,it is about the number of children who can be better mums because of you ..Happy mother’s day!!











Turn The Light On..


The loud sound of thunder woke Maria up in the middle of the night.She hugged her teddy so tight for some comfort.It didn’t help she  was still very scared.The heavy rain hiting the roof,the very dark room,the silence in the big house.She was so gripped with fear that she could hardly move.

Maria had also been very Courageous.Her dad had even told her that she was too courageous for a seven year old.But on this rainy night,Maria didn’t feel so brave.She was frightened by everything going on outside.

‘If I can only walk to the switch and turn on the light.I just need some light in this room.’ She thought to herself.

The thought of walking to the switch alone scared her.Maybe covering her head with her blankie will help.It didn’t.How about closing her eyes so tight.It didn’t,the room was so dark.

Sometimes,we have some dark moments in our lives that frightens us.But like Maria,we need the courage to walk through the dark to get to the switch and turn the light on.

No matter how dark your room is right now..Turn on the light! Open your bible.Its has enough light for your disappiontment,your confusion and any situation you can ever been in.


How Salty Are You?


Marie’s mother was sick and her dad had told her not to disturb her mother.
‘Mum has to be in bed all day because she needs some rest.’ her father explained.
‘Will she be alright?’
‘Yes she will,sweetheart,she just needs some rest.’
Marie thought of something to do to cheer her sick mother up.She tried to make a ‘get well soon’ card for her mum but she couldnt find words to complete the sentence.’I love you like….’She thought so hard but she couldnt find anything to compare the love she had for her mother to .Candies,ice cream,fairy dresses and even her teddy,Bobbie.She felt like she could live without those things but she couldnt live without her mum.
‘Maybe,I should make mum some soup.’ She thought.She was so proud of her soup and she couldn’t wait to serve mum but first she has to make sure it tastes perfect so she asked her dad to try it.
‘Hmmm,it taste great sweetheart but something is missing.’Dad tried to figure out
‘I know Dad,I put everything in it but the taste is not just right’

‘I think I know what’s missing.’Her dad opened a drawer and pulled out a white substance in a small bottle.
‘Salt’ Marie said
‘Let see’ he added a pinch of salt and tasted it again.’taste it,I think its perfect’
‘Yes,dad its perfect.The salt did the trick.’
‘Yes,Salt changes the taste of everything.Just a little of it can make food taste so much better.
‘You are right Dad,I can’t imagine life without a little salt’ she smiled.
Marie run to get the card she had made for her mum and added SALT to her sentence.’Without salt, all foods will be tasteless’ she thought.

She was so pleased and proud when her mum told her loved the soup and the card.


How salty is your speech? Is it tasteless like Marie’s soup?Do people enjoy the taste of your words or they have to throw up because your words are tasteless.(hurtful,discouraging or rude)

Challenge yourself to make a difference in people’s life with your words.

Celebrating Community Heroes


National and international heroes are often celebrated but rarely do we hear and acknowledge community heroes.

In a small communtiy in Accra,Ghana,there is a man making a big difference in the lives of children in his community.

This is a story about a man,Mr Eddy Tacks who organises an after school programme in his home.His home has become a school for more than 20 children in his community.


He helps the children who come from different schools in the community.Right after school,all these children go to his Eddy’s home to learn where they are helped with the school homework.

Children from all ages are grouped into classes and given special attention.


Mr Eddy Tacks is our community Angel for the month of April.We say Ayekoo to him and encourage him to continue to make an impact in the lives of the children in his community.

This world cannot survive without the efforts of many heros like Mr Eddy Tacks.We certainly have to appreciate them.

Do you have a hero in your community you want us to celebrate? Share the story here 🙂

I watched Michael on GODTV recently sharing his amazing childhood experience.For him growing up was tough because he could not read and write.He wasn’t smart at school and that really affected his self image.Anythime,he tried to pronounce a simple word,he will see the word in seven different way rather than what it really it.He soon realised that he can use this for his advantage.He found Comedy.He says that unlike the average person he looks at one thing and sees all the seven different ways that he can be.-Seven possibilities


Michaeljnr perfoms at youth rallies,church and prisons.He performs for different kinds of people.

He says ‘if I am in the club my materials have to be clean enough for the church,if I am in the pulpit it has to be funny enough to work in the club’

I totally love his joke on Jesus’ little brother..Watch it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRkaXQo6-9E



Smile and make it contagious

Eat like it won’t make you fat

Drink like wine was made for you.

Listen like nobody talks crap.

Laugh like it’s the only way to express yourself.

Pray like God stops the earth just to hear you

Live like life takes orders from you

Dance like a you are actually good at itImage

Dream like every dream comes true


When you love, love like it keeps you alive

Forgive like it’s the easiest thing to do

Breathe like every breath is paid for

Worry less…

Walk like you are rubbing shoulders with the world

Work like it’s the only kind of fun there is


When you live

Live like you are doing the world a favor

by being alive
