We’re contemporary chicas. We’re new age women. We’re, dare I say it... feminists? Anything a man can do, we can do too…better too. I understand the desire for acknowledgment and power. I understand the desire for attention. But, I must say ladies that I think we’re going down a dangerous ...
When I was a teenager, I was told to pray for people in authority. I also read in my Bible that I needed to pray for people in authority. In Nigeria I think that we are doing a great deal of that but then some other issues begin to come to mind.  When you are praying for your leaders and they ...
