Husband’s and Wives

God created marriage when he said it was not good for Adam to be alone and made them male and female in Genesis. He left precepts (guidelines for marriage in the bible).


Be Content With Your Wife

“Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth” Proverbs 5:18 (KJV).

Be Faithful

“And this second thing you do. You cover the LORD’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the LORD was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the LORD, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the LORD of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless” Malachi 2:13-16 (ESV).

Also Proverbs 5:18; Ecclesiastes 9:9; Song of Solomon 4:12 tells husbands to rejoice with the wife of his youth, it means appreciate her, value her, celebrate her, laugh with her and love her.

Husband’s and Wives

I’ve heard it said that marriage doesn’t come with a manual, not true. God had laid down guidelines, but either the husband or wife or both refuses to comply seeking to follow the path of culture or the norm. When you follow God’s way you have a marriage made in heaven enjoyed on earth, but it up to you to make the necessary change!

rose-3063284_640What I’ve observed is a husband expecting so much from his wife and giving her nothing or hardly anything in return or a wife doing the same to her husband. This is abuse.

As with anything when you misuse and abuse it, it becomes of no value to the abuser and both parties err here.

Do you love, appreciate and value your wife?

Do you love, value and appreciate your husband?

If you responded Yes, to the question. Do they know it? How do you show your spouse that you love, value and appreciate them?

Going back to that marriage manual, have you read the above scriptures? Read them and measure your marriage success by them and if you’re still sceptical read Ephesians Chapter 5: 22-32 (this is the bedrock scripture for Love Nurture).

Don’t seek to be like other husbands or wives. just seek to be the best husband and wife for your own spouse. This is the start of real transformation and a God centred marriage.

Put your thoughts below and remember to keep it honest.

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Acts 5:29 New International Version (NIV)
“Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

Too often our actions are dictated by a misguided need to please others. We care so much about what they think that with every step we take we look over our shoulder to see whether they’re smiling or frowning.

Understand this: if you’re always looking for people’s approval, you’re not looking where you’re going and eventually you’ll hit a wall or trip over your own two feet. The Bible says, ‘…We ought to obey God rather than men.’ What do you think will happen if you open your mouth and stand up for yourself?

The truth is that people who don’t respect your rights and honour your wishes are not worth your time or effort. Nor are they worthy of a long-drawn-out discussion; just say goodbye! (We’re not talking about your marriage or children.) 😀

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

When the land became too small for the flocks of Abraham and Lot to graze together, strife broke out. Abraham loved his nephew Lot, but he realised he could no longer live in this situation. So he said, ‘…Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left’ (Genesis 13:9 NKJV).

How does their story end? Lot chose the best grazing land close to Sodom, and as a result everything he worked for went up in smoke. But Abraham, who always sought to please God, ended up not only being blessed himself, but being a blessing to the nations of the world. So the word for you today is—God wants to set you free from people pleasing.

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children’s Children

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children's Children

Did you know one of the reasons I hosted the Love Nurture Functions in the past was to show parents how we could leave and inheritance to our children’s children?

What I’ve realised over the years is a lot of the couples I know, know how to stay together, Praise God! However, we haven’t really mastered the leaving an inheritance part and this comes from residual income, a fact, like gravity that works whether we like it or not. :)

Earn A Residual To Leave An Inheritance 

Do you earn a residual income?

My husband and I attended a business conference last year where that question was asked of the attendees. The speaker stated an alarming fact and said Africans, specifically Nigerians are good at throwing parties and bad at investing in the future and that we generally consider Working Tax Credit and Child Benefit to be sources of residual income! :(

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children’s Children

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children's ChildrenTruth is, personally since starting Love Nurture, I have been burdened by this knowledge and have searched, researched and signed up for a quite a few programs to get the information that parents are lacking. Succinctly put, residual income is money you get from other sources without much effort on your part following the initial setup. The trick is to find your passion and promote it to like minded individuals by becoming an affiliate or you can market your own product and services from one place and earn a residual. :)

Interested? Do you have a passion you’d like to present to the right people? Do you have a product or service to market? Could you refer others using a easy to follow process and be paid for it? Would you like to have multiple income streams?

Love Nurture Online Coaching


Love Nurture Online Coaching Every year, millions of people set goals for themselves.

And every year, millions of people fail to reach those goals.


I’ve learnt that the main reason is people don’t do what they say they are going to do. They know what needs to be done, but they don’t make the commitment or take consistent action to reach their goals.  I’ve also discovered the power and benefit of accountability and when you lack it, it’s a bad habit that will be a constant road block to your success, unless it is eradicated and replaced by new habits of taking consistent targeted action. 😀

Personally, because I fell into this category really by just being overwhelmed with the magnitude and the task before me and no one to really hold me accountable I failed to reach a quarter of my commitments, let alone half! This happened year after year. :(

Work Life Balance

Getting the Work Life Balance Right

I watched Wanted Down Under Revisited following the Wintrip family’s journey to relocate to Australia where they would have a better work life balance.

 Work Life Balance

From what I could gather as I had missed 15 minutes of it, was this had been something that had been an ongoing, possibly, on and off discussion that the couple had had years ago, approximately 10 years!

What made me emotional along with the fact that they had started it – the crying that is, was the family, friends and lifestyle that they had in the UK that would be greatly missed! :(

Well, they made the transition, not without more drama – one of their son’s announced the impending birth of their first grandchild! The question now was should they stay or should they go?Puzzled look

A Viable Option For Work Life Balance

   Work Life BalanceWhat is the point I’m trying to bring out here in addition to the obvious, which is, I love travel/property shows, is obtaining the work life balance is what every good husband and wife wants. Question is, how can you get it?Puzzled look

Well, lessons from the Wintrip family, don’t wait for years before you do the inevitable. One thing they said which made it harder to leave was leaving their sons behind. Now, if they had left when their sons were still dependent boys, it wouldn’t be an issue.

Also, leaving the UK much earlier in their married life would not have impacted on their work life balance as it did prior to the final decision to move. :(

The program finished over an hour a ago, but it amazes me how much of it resonated with me (the fact that I’m able to write all this from memory) and hopefully with you.

This is what I have endeavoured to show through Love Nurture and Love Nurture Investments and what it has been all about, which is getting the work life balance right with God at the centre of course! 😀

What can you do now to improve your work life balance without uprooting yourself and family half way across the world? Well, investing in stocks, shares and property is the best way I know how as it simple and affordable if you sign up with me. This is what I have been building upon in the last few years and this year, in the first quarter infact, it’s now all coming to fruition. 😀

Although, I’m impressed with the initiative the Wintrip family took to achieve their dreams for a better lifestyle that had a good balance of work and family, but at what cost I ask? I could see that they were torn, they confirmed it with lots of tears and thought provoking questions and statements throughout the program.

What Now?

You could decide to,’Up Sticks’ and leave the UK or wherever you are for greener pastures or you could signup here now and create a passive income to influence and positively affect your work life balance. Either way you’ll be taking a risk and what is life without taking risks for a better quality of existence? Or you could do nothing, in any case it’s you and your loved one’s who’ll live with the consequences. This (the last option) I might add, is a risky option also.

Guard Your Heart In Your Marriage

Guard Your Heart In Your Marriage“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” Proverbs 4:23 (NIV). Imagine it for a minute, the way you treat your spouse, children and others flows from how your heart is, what you really think or feel.

If you think in your marriage that you’re perfect and your spouse is the problem in the marriage (although in some instances this the case), know this: “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” Jeremiah 17:9 (NLT).

The question to ask yourself, ‘Have I done a heart check today?”

Do one regularly as no one is perfect, no one can change if they lie to Guard Your Heart In Your Marriage themselves or their spouse. Today, decide to stop lying and start changing as in the long run you will lose (Proverbs 11:21).

Change should start with you!

The bible tells us we’ll all have an appointment with death and after this the judgement – Hebrews 9:27.

Now imagine again after you have treated your spouse the way you liked without a fear or regard of God, you’re now standing before God and giving an account of your life. It doesn’t matter who you were when you lived or what ‘misguided’ impression people had of you because you knew how to put on a good show – after all only your spouse and God really know what type of spouse you are and their’s is the only opinion that should count!

Don’t presume to know a marriage couple or take sides against a spouse as you don’t know their heart or hurt, you can only point them to God’s word and provide godly counsel which is based on God’s word.

If a marriage is not nurtured it will die, don’t kill your marriage nurture it, by guarding your heart with all diligence! 😀

Your Marriage, Your Choice

Your Marriage, Your Choice How you view your marriage is important as it’s key to its success. Do you view it as a failure or success? If you do, you must realise whichever you chose, you are part of it. :)

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh” Genesis 2:24 (Jubilee Bible 2000).

Have you left the influence of your parents and are you in harmony and unity with your wife? If not, grow up and leave your parents emotionally and physically. This applies if a wife is still tied to her parents emotionally also. When you do this you will start to experience positive changes in your home and marriage. :) Ask yourself, “What practical changes can I make today to turn things around in my marriage?” Then take steps to implement them. You do not have control of your spouse nor should you ever wish to, but you can control yourself. You thoughts and action are up to you, so chose life.

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live” Deuteronomy 30:19 (NIV).
“Look, today I set before you a blessing and a cursethere will be a blessing, if you obey the commands of the LORD your God I am giving you today, and a curse, if you do not obey the commands of the LORD your God and you turn aside from the path I command you today by following other gods you have not known” Deuteronomy 11:26-28 (Holman Christian Standard Bible).

God created marriage and you curse it when you go contrary to his commands, decide to do it the right way because, it’s your marriage, your choice. :) Click the button below to support my work:
