HOW ONE LADY HAS USED THE MOVIE, "WAR ROOM" TO BRING HEALING TO MANY MARRIAGES



The first time I watched the movie, War Room I had a whole new perspective on how to handle problems in marriage. To me, it is beyond a movie. It is a power-packed message and a must-watch so go see it if you haven't done so already. Imagine my joy when I got to know that a lady chose to  go to different towns in Cameroon and play this movie for other women to watch. Testimonies from these "War Room conferences" abound.

Let me introduce to you, Marja Motanga nee Etchi better known by her pseudonym, La Marj. She is a professional Chartered Accountant who runs her own consultancy called, La Marj Solutions. She is one of the smartest and most inspirational human beings I have met on social media (no pun intended). She runs a Facebook community called, Be Like - Sois Comme in which she tells stories of young entrepreneurs who have beaten all odds and succeeded. Think of it as an African version of Humans of New York (HONY). 

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about La Marj is her pursuit for God and her desire to see other women do same. This led her to create a group of praying women on Facebook called, War Room Women. Apart from praying together online, she meets women in physical locations where they pray, cry and change stories. I sat down for a chit-chat with her. Read on.

ROUNDING UP 7 DAYS OF PRAYERS FOR FRUIT OF THE WOMB



Dear prayer partners, as we round up our seven days of prayers for fruit of the womb, the first few verses of Isaiah 54 keep speaking to me:

"Sing barren woman, who has never had a baby.
Fill the air with song, you who've never experienced childbirth!
You're ending up with far more children than all those childbearing women." GOD says so!"
The Message (MSG) Bible

It is time to rejoice and be glad. Praise the Lord because the childless woman shall surely laugh like Sarah:

"Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me." Genesis 21: 6

Let's praise the Lord:





HERE'S WHAT'S UP: A STORY ABOUT "CRY DIE"




Last week I went for a memorial service in honour of my late friend. It was more like taking a trip to Cameroon without the added burden of purchasing a flight ticket. Let me tell you about it.

MY FAVE FIVE GOSPEL SONGS



Gospel music is the reason why I could wash a single plate for five minutes, singing and nodding along, completely lost in mellifluous melody . When I indulge in gospel music, it takes the grace of God for me to be 'delivered'. It is really hard to pick a few because I love a whole bunch of songs. Here are some of the songs I enjoy most right now:

"I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death." Philippians 3:10

There is nothing sweeter than being in communion with Christ. The more I know Him, the more I want to know Him. He is everything that matters to me. My morning star. The solid rock on which I stand. So I just want to know Him and experience His mighty power. I want to live my life in a way that reflects Him because that is really all that matters.

I also want to know more about the people that visit this blog everyday. I'll like to know who you are and how you found my blog. I'll also like to know what you think about my posts and the kind of posts you often look forward to.

This May, I'll be telling more stories, cooking more food and changing more diapers. No shaking. Thank you for sticking with me my precious readers. I love you all so much. Have a very blessed new month!

PRAYERS FOR FRUIT OF THE WOMB - DAY 5

Hello friend, thank you for standing in prayer with with me. The Bible says blessed is the man that has his quiver full of children. Psalm 127: 3-5

We are praying for every woman that has not experienced the joy of childbirth that God will make her a joyful mother of children because Psalm 113:9 says,
He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD
He has not changed! Let's pray:
