Emilie Griffin - Prayer


"The best reason to pray is that God is really there. In praying, our unbelief gradually starts to melt. God moves smack into the middle of even an ordinary day ...

Isaac Kubvoruno - HUSBANDS

"Being the head of the household means work, duty, and great responsibility. The head of the household is the one responsible for everything that happens in the family. You cannot enjoy the privileges of headship and not be willing to shoulder the responsibilities that come with it. You can’t franchise, subcontract or outsource your husband responsibilities and not hurt your wife and marriage. You are accountable to God for the physical and spiritual welfare of your family. Make your wife’s life easier by carrying all your responsibilities dutifully. Your wife was not created to play her role and yours at the same time. Your wife should not live like a widow while you are still alive. You are the CEO, you are the Priest, Provider and Protector of the family. Therefore be involved. Be present. Take charge. Work hard. Pray, plan and execute. Remember your wife is your “suitable helper” not the other way round. Let your wife thank God that she is married to you." ~Isaac Kubvoruno on HUSBANDS

Kristin Armstrong -


"Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don’t be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are." ~Kristin Armstrong

Claire Nuer - ROCK


"Will you be the rock that redirects the course of the river?" ~Claire Nuer from Rebel Thriver


"In a relationship, you need somebody who's gonna call you out, not someone who's gonna let everything slide. You need someone who doesn't want to live without you but can. Not somebody that is dependent but somebody who is stronger with you. A relationship is two people, not one." ~Anon

Emery Allen Quotes


“I’m often difficult to love. I go through dark periods like the moon and I hide from myself. But I promise I will kiss your wounds when they’re hurting. Even if they’re in your soul, I can find them with the light in my fingertips. I will lead you to the river so you can remember how beautiful it feels to be moved by something that is out of your control. And when our dark periods match, we can breathe with the grass and look at the night sky. The stars will remind us of the beauty in our struggles and we won’t feel lost.” ~Emery Allen

“Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.” ~Emery Allen

“In the midst of her torment, she felt a sense of hope and trying to understand the gravity of the situation, she thought, 'the circumstances do not own me. I am in the moment and I am capable to decide, either to leave or to stay.' Leading her to understand that it didn't matter how low her self-esteem was; for there was another sensation within her, an oomph driving her forward with certainty and not doubt. The people around her could diminish her self-esteem all they wanted; nevertheless no one was competent to take away the source of her dreams, her drive, a faculty that she was inescapably bonded with, but she had not quite identified within--Her Will.” ―A passage from my Novel, Floranova B.
