EP 08. Sisterhood; Vulnerability & Growth.
EP 08. Sisterhood; Vulnerability & Growth.
Vulnerability is never easy and there’s no getting used to it. It requires you opening up parts of yourself that you may not even proud of. Parts of yourself that you would get judged for if you told everyone. But when you have a friend who sticks close like a brother or sister and has a relationship with the Holyspirit, vulnerability is much easier. Because more often than not, the Holyspirit already prepares their heart to receive you and all your flaws and help you through whatever you may be going through. Listen, Enjoy and Share. 🥂

EP 06. ONE Body
EP 06. ONE Body
That lady you refer to as Sis. Bella in church or that guy you call Bro. Peter, do you really consider them your real Sister and Brother? Or do you call them that just because. 😒 In this Episode, Marcelle talks about what it means for the body of christ to be ONE. God has made our individual lives a lot more intertwined than we choose to admit. So we need to have each others backs, stand up for each other and defend each other in public. How dare you talk about your sibling like that on Twitter? 😳 Listen and enjoy. Cheers 🥂

EP 05. The Reckless love of God
God looked at mankind thy didn’t give a damn about him and sent his only son as a sacrifice for our sin. Never in the history of humanity has anything more Reckless ever been done! But guess what? This is how much God loves you. It is because of that impulsive and thoughtless love he has for you that he gave you the most expensive gift freely; Jesus. In this episode, Marcelle expatiates the love of God and how that translates into salvation. She also shares a few life experiences to paint a picture of how loved she is by God. The goal is to bring Christians into the full realization of what it means to be saved and to let those who aren’t saved know that there is a kind of love that exists that will transform their lives completely and thy love is Jesus. Cheers 🥂

14. Maintaining long term friendships ft. Mary & Fisayo
Just like romantic relationships, friendships require just as much intentionality and effective communication in order for it to stand the test of time. Unfortunately, many people just don’t place much value on their friendships. In this episode, two of my besties and I discuss how we’ve been able to maintain our amazing friendship from across different parts of the world for over 14 years. However, in the spirit of keeping it real, we also tell each other the hurtful things we did that affected the dynamics of our friendship for a while... let’s just say we all kissed and made up. Cheers to building and maintaining wholesome friendships 🥂

8. Influence of Culture on our Christian Lifestyle.
8. Influence of Culture on our Christian Lifestyle.
Many of us may not agree but our culture/background/physical environment has a huge influence on our Christian lifestyle. Our various Cultures, though warped by sin, is a gift from God. But I believe when studying the Bible to draw meaning, we need to put our culture, background and differences aside in order to find true meaning of the word of God.
