For those of you who had the opportunity to read the first part of this series, you will agree that this one is long overdue. In the last article, I shared that the purpose of marriage is designed first to fulfill God’s mandate in our lives. Marriage was the first institution that God established in the earth and not only did he speak it into existence he also facilitated the process. According to the bible, God created man (Adam) and then woman (Eve) out of his ribs for the sole purpose of being his wife and helpmate. Once God brought…

When I was growing up in The Gambia, I was always fascinated by married women. I watched the women cook, clean, take care of the family, look all put together most of the time so I thought they lived perfect lives.

Reader, you would agree with me that life is a journey which requires us to make many decisions. As the world around us changes constantly, we are forced in positions to decide whether to turn to the left or to the right, this way or that and whether to take the path mostly travelled by or the one that is less popular.
