In an age where the lines between right and wrong are becoming increasingly blurred, is definitely a treasure trove of incredibly candid and wholesome advice on relationships of all kinds. Gbemisoke is really just a thirty-something year old woman doing the best she can to live for her Creator’s glory, but it is her passion and zest that make her truly special. Her love- for God, for life, for her family, for love– shines through everything she does; even Twitter followers who have never met her in person can feel it. She’s upfront about the fact that her life, and therefore her counsel, is centred around Jesus Christ, but with over 78, 000 visitors and the Nigerian Blog Awards’ for Best Parenting or Family Blog (Judges Choice) in her kitty, we don’t believe readers mind much. Formerly a custom clothier, she decided to follow the passion of her true self and is currently studying to become a Marriage and Family Counselor. She knows she’s a work-in-progress, but that doesn’t stop her from sharing her God-given wisdom, and taking us along on her “crazy and exciting journey.” On her 6th anniversary she posted; “We started this journey in a tiny apartment, our mattress on the floor, watching bootleg copies of Lost and Grey’s Anatomy, because we couldn’t afford a bed or cable TV. The AC we inherited from the previous tenants helped keep things cozy, perfect weather for getting to “know” each other. Good times! We’ve had good days. Lots of them. We’ve seen our dreams become reality. Our goals and projections have not only been met, they’ve been exceeded. We’ve seen God come through for us time and again. God has been kind to us. We couldn’t have done it without Him. We’ve had bad days. Times when giving up seemed like a better option. Days when love became a choice, a tough one, because the feeling was just not there. We have made it through the storms, surviving love’s ebb and flow. We have laughed and cried together. We’ve evolved and grown together. We have made memories together. As I look back on the past six years, my heart is filled with gratitude to God.” Of her children and the toll raising them takes on her, she writes; I am convinced that they work for some top secret government agency as “Anti-Intimacy Agents”! Their sensors are CIA grade and I have nicknamed them Fire Extinguishers cos they stay trying to put out the fire of my love life. Try as they may, I shangree! God is on my side and I shall overcome! Did I hear you say AMEN?! Thank you jare! God bless you! 😉 There may be some Superhero mums who never get exhausted, are always smiling as they change diapers and are perfectly satisfied with their non-existent sex lives, but I am not one of them. I used to feel guilty about the negative emotions that I felt and I would never even admit them. I’m so over that. I’ve learned to acknowledge that those emotions are legitimate and they do not make me a bad mum. They make me human. She doesn’t shy away from the more difficult topics either. If it’s real life, she will tackle it; posts like “What If He’s Attracted to Someone Else?” (video), and her latest write-up (as at the time of publishing this) “Ready to talk to your kids about sex now?” attest to this. As she strives to balance her “roles as wife and mom with a strong desire to reinvent herself and live optimally”, we cannot but cheer her on. In a broken world, this blog is truly a breath of fresh air! Check it out!…Need it? Search it, Find it!
