As a young newly married woman in my early twenties, I had a lot of difficulties adjusting to the new environs of married life. Although my husband, Godwin and I knew each other for over 4 years before marriage, living together and accommodating one another was a new experience.
One time when we had an argument and were being counseled by an elder in the church, my husband was told that I am still a little girl and he needs to just understand and give me more time. That I found very unfair because age is no bar to knowledge and understanding. All it takes is a little effort and consideration and more than anything a knowledge of God’s Word. I stress on ‘A Knowledge of God’s Word’, because it was The Word that brought about a change in my outlook and expectations. A change that has enabled us stay married for 19 years despite the problems we still face from time to time. The Word in Phillipians 2:3b says consider the other better that yourself. When I began applying this Word, I found a lot of changes happening from within and without.
So, at the Women’s Fellowship in The Eternal Life Fellowship Church, all of my own life’s experiences along with the Word of God is shared with the women folk who attend. It is my desire Women become the Faithful, Kind , Independent, Industrious, Healthy, Enterprising, Generous, Well Prepared and Well Groomed Woman of the Bible (Proverbs 31:10-27).
I BELIEVE THAT THE WOMAN IS THE BEST GIFT GIVEN TO MAN, TO LOVE AND TO CHERISH AT ALL TIMES.
