… 28 Days to Creating the Marriage You’ve Always Wanted with the Spouse You Already Have
Is an argument-free marriage possible? Fawn Weaver’s answer is yes, absolutely, even when one or both partners are strong willed, independent, and opinionated. (She admits to being all three.) In this groundbreaking book, the best-selling author and award-winning marriage blogger asks readers to invest twenty-eight days in learning how to live together without bickering, blame, angry outbursts, or silent treatments.
Fawn begins with the startling premise that, contrary to popular opinion, conflict in marriage is not necessary or inevitable. Then she leads readers on a day-by-day journey toward a more peaceful and supportive relationship. Chapter by brief chapter, she offers fresh perspectives and practical strategies for communicating effectively, building understanding, and defusing anger while at the same time nurturing honesty, vulnerability, and mutual support.

Coconut Oil Fuels Your Metabolism!
Researchers have discovered that in cultures where unrefined coconut oil is a part of the everyday diet, there is less obesity and less lifestyle-related disease.
Unfortunately, very little coconut oil is consumed in the U.S. and metabolic syndrome—along with its symptoms of obesity, diabetes and heart disease—is reaching epidemic proportions! Continue reading The Coconut Oil Secret
The following know the answer to this question: Rick Warren, author of the bestseller Purpose Driven Life has sold over a million copies; Max Lucado also a Christian bestselling author and writer, along with Joyce Meyer a bestselling author and bible teacher have all got ministries /gifts that are reaching the world, not just Christians!
What would have happened if Edison had allowed a limited education, financial difficulty and a disability to hold him back? We’d all possibly be without electricity and using candles or lamps, oh wait those where inventions by others who decided to use their talent!
“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration” Thomas Edison. Read about his early life here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Edison
What would have happened if Bill Gates had refused to use his talent because he was too frightened or had too many knockbacks?
The bible says he gave gifts unto man – Ephesians 4: 8. Read the whole passage to learn the purpose of this. The question here is:
What is in your hands?
The Parable of the Ten Virgins
Teaches us to prepare and not take our salvation or position for granted. Those 5 wise virgins who understood that PREPARED, the 5 foolish ones did not understand the need to prepare even though they were already chosen to meet the bridegroom – they took their position for granted so failed to take extra oil for their lamps.
The Parable of the Talents
The King represents God who gave his servants (some bible translations say, stewards) talents according to their ability. The stewards who used their talents actually went out there into the market place inspite of the fear of losing their masters money. Do you think they just entered into trading ‘willy nilly’? They must have observed other traders and as loyal stewards observed their master on several occasions, if not, why would he entrust them? He knew their capabilities, the question was did they know what was in their hands?
Use Your Potential
Everyone has gifting and what a lot of people don’t realise is, because it’s a gift does not mean you shouldn’t nurture, grow or enhance it. That’s where the 5 foolish virgins got it wrong. They felt they were already qualified as potential brides so no preparation was needed? Right? Wrong!
Coming back to the parable of the talents, the steward with the lesser talent revealed his motivation for doing nothing, which was FEAR! His belief system was surrounded in fear, doubt and unbelief which spoke loud and clear in his actions or in this case inaction!
Did he have the same opportunities around him that the other two stewards had? Yes, he did, but he chose to be paralysed by fear.
He obviously didn’t know about that scripture that says:
“ …Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all” Ecclesiastes 9:10-11(KJV -Read from the beginning of the chapter, the them referred to is Christians and non Christians alike!)
The story of the talents makes reference to investing in trading or with the bank as a way to grow your income which enables you do more than you could with limited funds (Ecclesiastes 10:19), so when you use the excuse I don’t have enough money, why not invests what you have in a bank that provides the highest interest you can find and also consider day trading? With the availability of training and courses online and off we are really without excuse. Learn more here: Trade Like A Pro – practical trading alerts
The lesson here is, God has given each of us talents to use for his glory and to benefit others outside of our church community. The only limitations are the ones in our minds. If you fail to recognise your gift or nurture it, how can you glorify God or impact others for the Kingdom of God? Or how can you truly reach your grave empty like the late Pastor Myles Munroe taught. If you sit on your hands you become like the foolish virgins and fearful servant. Step out inpite of fear and do great things for God. 😀
Robert Kiyosaki best selling author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and the Cashflow Quadrant, teaches about the importance of a financial education and being alert to what you feed your mind. In his article, “Ten Decisions You Need To Make To Get Rich” he had this to say:
“One of the reasons the rich get richer is because they spend time with other rich people. Most of my best investments come from my rich friends, not from my stock brokers or real estate brokers. It is important to know if a person’s aspirations are to be rich, comfortable or simply survive.
Friends who merely want to be comfortable or survive will not understand why you want to be rich and may unconsciously pull you down. And besides, the investment tips I get from people who only want to be comfortable are often tips on investments that no one else wants.
How do you find people who are rich or want to be rich? Rich Dad had a simple answer: “It’s what you know that determines who you know. If you want to change who you know, simply change what you know.” So the most important investment you can make is in your financial education and financial experience. Invest in that first and the people you spend time with will change.”
Now, I take my financial education seriously and even set money
aside for it. This is what the wealthy do and the best way to learn to succeed is to copy what works from those who have succeeded. So, if you want to start investing in your financial freedom with the right financial education, reading Robert’s books are the best way to start.

Press Release: Anchored Assurance (Written in late 2005 taken from my archives)
Eruvwu (full name is Eruvwuoghene) Obuaya, is indeed a busy woman, as the founder of Love Nurture, she is regularly organising its functions or editing articles for the magazine. In addition to this, Eruvwu is an employee, wife and mother. Now, Eruvwu is adding author to her list of achievements, her debut novel Anchored Assurance was published in October of 2005.
How does it feel to be a published author?
It is a wonderful sense of accomplishment and courage and I am quite pleased.
Your novel was launched on the 5th November 2005 what was that like?
Awesome! It was fantastic and such a great pleasure and a wonderful opportunity.
In what way was it a wonderful opportunity?
I was able to meet some of my niche market face to face, have a reading and sign copies of the book; it was all so new and exciting!
Why did you decide to write?
It was as a result of a conversation I had with friends years ago about the lack of good Christian novels so I decided right then that I would write a novel; mainly, I believe it is a gift from God!
How long did it take?
Not long. The story line was completed within months. It’s the editing, proofreading, finding an agent and publisher that are quite time consuming.
You’re a wife and mum of four, how do you manage to write as well as care for your family?
By doing a little at a time, a lot of support from my family, discipline and determination on my part. Like any other mum, I made the time. I took it a day at a time sometimes just doing what I could in the moment. I’m in the spot light now, but mothers world wide are doing spectacular things that may never come into print.
Who is Anchored Assurance for?
Anyone who is going through difficult times and needs encouragement, this novel will provide encouragement and hope. Anchored Assurance tells how God is a very present help in times of need, just like a ship anchored in a storm, when we call on him in trouble, he’s right there, I know, I cry HELP so often and he never fails!
What is the story about?
It’s about having the love of support of friends and family when you go through difficult times as well as faith in God. The storyline centres mainly around three friends and the tests and trials they each go through and how the combination of their friendships, family and faith in God see them through.
Are the characters based on real life?
Huge grin. Not at all, but it is said there is a little bit of the writer in every story. Those who know me best might be able to confirm this. However, I wrote Anchored Assurance from observation and pure imagination.
Why did you decide to use Nigerian names?
I was in Nigeria at the time so it was natural or inevitable, just as natural or inevitable as other writers using names from their backgrounds. It is my hope that the use of Nigerian names does not take away from the storyline or the pleasure of reading. I do however, have a glossary of Nigerian names at the back of the book to aid the reader.
Will you be writing again?
Ooh yes! I am definitely going to write again. I have at least two more in me.
When is your next book coming out and is it a sequel to Anchored Assurance?
Possibly, a year on from now. I’m still working on it. However, I have been concentrating a lot of my effort on promoting and marketing Anchored Assurance so that I have not worked on it recently. It is not a sequel to Anchored Assurance; it is completely different, but just as inspired. And, not an African name in sight! (Well maybe, one!)
Who are your target audience?
Mostly, those who love a good fiction! I did target teenagers and young adults, because they are more likely to relate to the storyline; but my 11 year old son and 6 year old daughter loved it! (at the time) So I wait to see just who will be reading it.
Did you have your target audience in mind when you named your characters?
Yes, I did think of my readers when naming the characters and in employing the style I went for. I recall when I started reading Barbara Cartland novels, I wasn’t familiar with the old English names used, like ‘Selwyn’, ‘Marques’, ‘Rowena’, ‘Llewellyn’ etc. but that didn’t stop my enjoyment. As someone recently said to me, the fact that I used Nigerian names is generic and anyone, regardless of race can still relate to what the characters go through. So, I hope my readers agree.
Any final thoughts you wish to share?
Ooh yes! It all looks so glamorous, but it has been stressful, nerve racking and extremely hard work. Not many know of the times I was proof reading edits while admitted to hospital suffering from ‘post partem pre-eclampsia’ (high blood pressure following child birth) with my baby by my side. (A big thank you however to the midwives and medical team at St. Thomas’ who took good care of me, I believe God used them to save my life!) Also, not many know of my tears and fears or what my husband and other children endured. Nor, the running around with baby in the baby carrier for appointments, come rain, wind or shine. Or the struggle to change my tights in the ladies toilet at my local supermarket with baby screaming, while rushing off to yet another appointment. I also experienced a lot of disappointments, let downs and nearly being swindled, but I persevered. As I said, a lot of mums are heroes out there, so it is nothing new, Proverbs 31 lists the attributes of a virtuous woman and frankly that’s my goal!
Where can someone purchase their copy of your novel?
From the Publisher, Publish America or me. However,as the author, I am currently aiming to raise £30,000 for charity through the sale of the novel by Mother’s Day 2009. So, for every copy of Anchored Assurance sold a £1 goes to Release International and World Vision, two great charities, the latter provide food, shelter and clothing for children and communities worldwide, while the former defend persecuted Christians worldwide.
Useful money making idea
Just by marketing online via my own link I can affords me the opportunity to give a £1 per copy sold to charity – Direct link here A minimum of 50 copies per organisation or group will help us to reach our goal faster. Making money couldn’t be easier, by taking orders from friends, clubs or group you’re affiliated with, you could raise money for charity and make some yourself. Sell the book and make Money yourself through Clickbank here: 1.xxxxx.pay.clickbank.net using your Clickbank ID (which should replace xxxxx). Obviously the more orders you can take the more you will make!
