Secret to Fathers Raising Great Daughters and Chimamanda Adichie's Beautiful Feminist Essay

I have always believed that most men are victims of a wrong society. A society that teaches girls to marry but never broach the discussion with the boys they are being raised to marry. As a hopeless romantic - I shed tears at PDAs, love romance movies and for even a great compliment -hahaha...I have always questioned why a man won't treat a lady right.

Then I began to understand that they don't know any better. If most men were raised and groomed for marriage like girls, Nigeria would have developed beyond where we are.

The Novelist, Chimamanda Adichie has been one of my earliest inspiration and when I stumbled on an essay of 15 suggestions on how to raise a great daughter she wrote, I totally fell in awe. 

Chimamanda really echoed most of my thoughts exactly. A blog I love published it and click here to get the whole scoop. I bet you can't miss it!

Boss, but before you click the link, let me let you in on a secret: - your daughter will learn better from you than from her mother. She watches what you do, not what you say. Just like the boys too, if you love their mother right, they stand better chances to live fulfilled lives and treat their future spouses like humans with dignity. You gotta believe me. Contribute to raising your daughter well, and together we hope someone is raising a boy right for her too.

Let's do this together.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
