Hello dearies, how is October unfolding? I'm here with another edition of "Here's What's Up!" This time, I'm going to churn out another naked piece. You know, it is easier to blog about your successes than your um... failures. But today, I'm just going to be naked for someone out there who needs to know this and learn from my story.

|What is life without food? Lol. Natural brown rice, chicken sauce and stewed greens.|
Hello people, I'm excited!!! So I told you HERE last week that I was going to be sharing how my week goes every Monday. This is the second edition. Last week was eventful! I already narrated my experience at the "fire church" in THIS POST. Now, I'll tell you about the rest of my week. I went to an apple orchard with the girls to pick apples, attended a community baby shower and received my Mary Kay starter kit. See all the scoop below.

Last Wednesday, I was invited to an African church after many months of not being in one. I fed my girls, dressed them up and we all got into the car for the evening prayer service. I was eager to go and pray the dramatic way with my fellow Pentecostals after a coon's age. Getting to the venue was a bit of a challenge to me. After spotting the structure on a busy long street in the city of Saint Paul, I noticed it was closely flanked by two buildings. Hence there was no parking space. I drove to the next street and got to the back of the building where I found sufficient parking space.

So far this year, I have grown tremendously. I am grateful to God for that. I believe we stop living when we stop growing. I'm happy with how far my blogging has come. I am not where I want to be but I am not where I used to be. I am so grateful for this opportunity to use my writing skills to inspire someone out there. #IhopeIinspiresomeone
Is there something you have always wanted to do but failed to do? Go for it! Of course, only go for it if God approves of it. There is a way that seems right to a man but it leads to death-Proverbs 14:12. As long as you know you are in God's will, don't hesitate to do what you have to do. Don't procrastinate. Just do it. Don't try to know everything at once. Take one step at a time and you will get there. Whenever I write, I feel fulfilled because it is a step towards dying empty.
Apart from writing, I have started a business with Mary Kay as an Independent Beauty Consultant. My beautiful starter kit came in yesterday and I am over the moon! Mary Kay was created to help women balance spiritual life, family and career. When I was first told this, I thought it was a line to draw me into the business. However, I have found this to be true. In fact, Mary Kay Ash, the founder said God should come first. family second and career last. This is ideal for me as a Mom who wants to spend a lot of time with her kids. I will be able to make some income and this will not prevent me from rightly building my home. #Grateful
I do not want to go to my grave with all my God-given potentials. That is why I will keep giving and giving again. What is that thing inside of you that needs to be released? Don't hoard that book. Don't fail to write that song. Start that business. Do that thing that you have to do. A day that goes by is never coming back.
This is the beginning of the last quarter of the year. Live each day as it it were your last on earth. Yet plan for many years ahead. And, let me just remind you here that Jesus is coming soon. So, "whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father." Colossians 3:17
Let's raise our glasses and toast to an exceptional month of October! A very happy independence day to every Nigerian and "Southern Cameroonian" reading this. I will be writing more intriguing stories, sharing tips and recipes, telling you what happens during the week and keeping you updated on my Mary Kay journey.
Thank you so much for reading and for clicking again. Those clicks are the reason I stay motivated.
P.S. Let's do some #ThrowbackThursday here. Check out the posts below, which I wrote last year!

|A Cameroonian delicacy: Fufu, Njamanjama and Kati Kati|
Hello lovelies, how has the week started for you all? Before I continue, let me just ask any mother (especially of toddlers) this question: how do you do it??? Am I the only one that feels like all the
sins chores in the world are upon me? Am I the only one who is constantly tired? Am I the only one who always has something pressing to do? Am I the only who sometimes feel like she may lose it? Am I the only one??? Motherhood is tedious... so hard yet so fulfilling. How I still manage to write blog posts is like a miracle to me. I'm always writing posts in my head but how do I get the time to transfer all those posts to the blog? I sometimes wish my musings will automatically transfer to a computer screen. If only wishes were horses...
