If you haven’t heard, your girl is studying abroad this Fall in Rome, Italy! That’s right, I’m escaping Philly for a few months to live in the Eternal city. I can’t believe it has been a month since I arrived here. I am grateful for this experience and to my school, Temple University for providing students with this opportunity. My plan is to summarize my weekly Study Abroad experiences on the blog. However, I was lazy and failed to document my first month, so you’ll be getting a detailed summary of my past month in this post, and weekly posts after. I hope this post won’t be too long, I’m just trying to carry you along as much as possible, I hope you enjoy reading it. I’ll be sharing the good and bad, no ugly yet.
Week 1: Continue reading “Study Abroad in Italy (One Month Recap)”
**Hang tight, this is a long post, but it is very interesting.
I’ve been following Christ for two years now, and I’m very passionate about him. Last week, I asked God to bring me back to the foundation of Christianity, so I could tell people about him effectively. He brought me into the book of Acts, which is filled with stories of how the early church started. There are some profound sermons and stories shared by the pioneers of the early church (Peter, Paul, Stephen, etc.) These men were effective in preaching the gospel to people who knew about God (Jews), and those who did not (Gentiles). Reading Acts has motivated me to share the gospel with as much detail as I can. I’ll encourage you to read this post, and proceed to read Acts for more in depth understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Continue reading “I bring you Good News!”
Nigeria is without a doubt, a tough country. Most people say it’s a country where a mosquito can hold you at gunpoint saying “Ogbeni, Give me your blood.”
In Nigeria and most countries, women are brought up to see other women as threats. The same goes for the men. Think you’re not one of them? Think twice.
Have you ever looked at your group of friends and said “I’m definitely the Beyoncé in this group”. Nobody says “Bukky is the Beyoncé (it girl) and I’m the Jenifa (the lame one)”
You hold a subtle grudge with anyone you think is better and has achieved more than you.
Still don’t think so? Here’s a short story to illustrate. Continue reading “A Piece On Bullying In Nigeria- By Bukola Ogungbade”

It’s Summertime! Everyone’s favorite time of the year, especially students. We are always excited for the long holiday and are constantly on the hunt for fun activities and places to visit. That is why this post exits.
If you’re in Philadelphia for the summer, this post is for you. Philly has lots of special places to visit and I’ve realized that my favorite spots in the city are its parks. Although, the city is home to numerous parks, the three mentioned below are my top and I tell you why… Continue reading “Where to PARK yourself this Summer (Philly Edition)”

We have been thought all our lives to endure being single. We believe that we are merely existing and one day when we find our partners (future spouse/ perfect match/soulmate), we’ll suddenly become over joyous, reach ultimate fulfilment and have everything fall into place. We learn this from the movies we watch, books we read, our parents, and society as a whole. Since we’ve been fed this from childhood, it is normal that we internalize these ideas, and believe them. Be honest with yourself, you thought this way, I know I did. Each one of us longs, waits, and fantasizes about that special someone who will come and magically sweep us off our feet.

My name is Allie Edwards. I want to share with you how I began incorporating my faith into my art, and how it is helping me work towards God’s calling in my life. I hope this will give you insight into how you can learn about God’s calling in your life, using a visual tool called “GPS”. First, I’ll let you all know who I am! Continue reading “#Testimony: Going for God or Self?”
This is the most random post I’ve ever written, but stick with me, I promise this is going somewhere. I feel led to encourage someone who is struggling or feels stuck. I want to let you know that God is with you amidst your struggle. Something I learnt recently is that God is faithful to us because ‘Faithful’ is who he is. He won’t be God if he is not faithful to us. Continue reading “#Testimony: You are Never Lost”
You probably know this, but in case you’re new here, my name is Oyinlola, and I’m Christian, not the type to shy from real conversations though. I believe Jesus came to challenge our wrong mindsets through his word (he had conversations all through the bible), so our hearts can be transformed. This is why I appreciate pastors/ministers who deliver unfiltered sermons, through empowerment of the Spirit. No longer should Christians pretend that they are not affected by relationship and sex issues. Truth is, we do think about dating and sex, and for a long time, the church avoided delving into these matters. This means young people like me have been learning about relationships and sex from the world, and we’ve been struggling. These issues affect us and if we do not learn what God has to say about them, we’ll never attain his fullness for our lives. Continue reading “Sermons that will feed your Soul! On Dating and Sex”
