We are a week old today.
Yes, this blog was birthed last week so it is officially our christening today, lol.

The love and feedback from here have been so amazing.
Thank you all for sticking with me as we make this journey together.

In my journey to self-discovery and becoming a better version of me, I started a deliberate act of reading books. This year I decided to read 12 books, one per month. This has been interesting although I haven't exactly been faithful ( you already know we bear our flaws here "unashamed'). However, I am determined to get better.

I will be sharing here the books I have read this year and moving forward.

Put your Angels to work by Bishop David Oyedapo
This book gives a reminder that the ministry of Angels is available and the Holy Spirit is given to us so that we may know the things which are freely given to us by God. Until we become fully aware of this we cannot fully enjoy the benefit of their being given, neither can we fully reign, because, in the kingdom of God to which we belong, we reign by knowledge.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey 
This is a self-improvement book. It is written on Covey's belief that the way we see the world is entirely based on our own perceptions. In order to change a given situation, we must change ourselves, and in order to change ourselves, we must be able to change our perceptions.

I struggled with reading this book for two months.
Mostly because the book has a lot of truth in it and it took me time to accept this truth.

We all want to succeed. And one path to success is identifying the habits that can help us on our journey.

I recommend starting that path by reading Stephen Covey's best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. 

A woman after God's own Heart by Elizabeth George.
Elizabeth George shares God's Word and woman-to-woman practical wisdom on how you can pursue God's priorities.

You will experience peace, order, and joy when you follow God's guidelines for every area of your life, and best of all, you will become a woman after His heart!
I recommend that you read this book with an open mind ready to learn and unlearn a lot of things.
There is a version of this book men too.

In between I read "marriage as God intended" by Selwyn Hughes, I first read this book six years ago when I just got married and it was a whole new knowledge when I revisited it this year again.

Then my all-time favorite " 100 days of fire and power" by Appstle Busola Jegede.
This is a powerful prayer book and I recommend it all year round.

This month I will be reading a book titled "Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life"
by Sarah Jakes
This book is about finding your feet back from the wrong path, So fingers crossed.
