I just discovered this blog today! The link that was tweeted at me led to a post that just blew me away. How many times have I longed for the spiritual zeal and fire of my younger days? Only a few months ago, I struggled through a 21-day fast and I could not believe what I had become! On a normal day I can stay without food till afternoon, but let fasting day come…wonderment. Na during fasting naim food dey scent pass o, chei!
It read like something I could have written. I gobbled it up, savouring every bite, and then quickly went on to check out as many others as time would permit me. Apart from her posts about her faith, she also writes fiction and non-fiction posts in different categories, on topics ranging from rape and health awareness to being Nigerian and making a difference.
Passion for God, passion for country (which does not attempt to deny sad facts!) and passion for purposeful living; what’s not to love? In fact, when I opened the page the first thing I noticed was a quote that resonated with me, because I believe there’s strength in numbers and when it comes to starting a revolution in Nigeria, we need enough people committed to doing the right thing!
“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” ~ Howard Zinn
Many Nigerians like to go to church and rant on social media but not actually DO anything to contribute to a better nation. Show Simi Olusola your faith without action, and she will show you her faith by her actions!
What do I love most about this blog? The fact that the blogger has an understanding that’s very important for every true follower of Christ: we do the things we do to please God not so that He will love us, but because He does.
See the mercy seat lifted above the judgement seat! Grace!

Not a lot of things trump the joy of finding kin souls and I must say that I have found one in ANAFRICANDIVA. She also happens to be my birthday mate :). You can always count on Joy to be blunt, honest and down to earth and it gives me no small pleasure to get this review from her.
Oh woooooow! We’re birthday mates! Whoop!
