Every woman, every mother and every girl is worth celebrating. Ask me why.
They are life givers, they nurture, they build and they influence. (Feel free to add yours)
I believe outside your own biological mother, there is one woman somewhere who remains priceless in your heart.
She inspires you, she motivates you and she encourages you. She has also become an unforgettable part of your life’s journey.
Your paths may have crossed physically, spiritually, through books or even on social media. Let’s celebrate that special woman with you here on the blog. Share your story about this inspirational woman and why she inspires you in the comments section.
The stories of many mothers inspire me, but today I would like to stick with Sonya Carson, mother of world-renowned neurosurgeon, Benjamin Carson. And this is why she inspires me. Continue reading
Your children are God’s gift to you.
They are yours to care for,
and to love unconditionally.

I once read about a boy from India, Mahendra Ahirwar who suffered from a rare condition called congenital myopathy, a condition that made his neck muscles weak, making his head hang at a 180-degree angle. His mother bathed, fed and dressed him. He couldn’t go to school like other children his age.
And then I read about a woman, a mother from the UK, Julie Jones. This teenager’s story touched her a lot and she decided to do something about it. Julie set up a crowd-funding page for Mehandra in a bid to raise money for a surgery that could give him a new lease of life. Within 28 days, the page had raised 12,000 pounds.
Two continents apart and the power of compassion is felt deeply. It simply flows from one woman’s world to a young boy’s heart. Mehandra had surgery and was able to sit with his head hanging upright. But sadly, he passed away 8-months after his life changing surgery.
We are two worlds apart, different in the colour of our skin and even in our beliefs, our languages may not even sound alike, yet compassion can break these boundaries.
Many are sick while others are dying, thousands of children go through each day with little or no education, as many daily flee their war-torn countries in search of a better future. Continue reading
Embrace your new role.
Love the journey.

Motherhood is a high calling.
It is a call to give life and light to the next generation.
Today is the International Day of The Girl Child, and it is all about girls.
Yes, girls, girls, girls. Girl power, girls winning, girls leading, girls becoming and girls inspiring the world.
I am a girl and I have a girl in my life now. She came into my world 2 years ago and she has the most amazing smile.
Her presence can never go unnoticed, she is full of energy and her laughter is infectious. She is my daughter and a girl who is just learning about the world.
I am girl who seeks knowledge and always searches for inspiration. I am a girl, I am a mother, my life and values can either make or break the generation after me.
Every girl needs some inspiration. Inspiration to live, to give and to become. Every little girl is special and she needs to hear it. That little girl needs to know how valuable and priceless she is.
Every girl needs some inspiration. Inspiration to dream, to believe and to achieve. Every little girl needs to know that she can achieve her dreams. That little girl needs some courage and faith in those wings to fly. Continue reading
Can you confidently say at the end of your life that you passed on the baton of faith, courage, hope and love to your child/children?
Can you boldly say at the end of your life that you enriched your child/children with great values, and that you filled their hearts with wisdom?
Can you confidently look God in the face at the end of your life and say – that which you entrusted to me, I led, I loved, I cared, I gave and I nurtured.
