Finding Miriam (Free Chapter)

by Laju Iren • January 22, 2019

Chapter One Miriam hated this place. When Goch asked her how good her Hausa was, she thought he just needed a brief translation, she had no idea that this was what he had in mind.

by Laju Iren • August 15, 2017

  I know it’s #Dauntless #SelfiesWithBibleGirls season. But I’m still a #relationshipblogger so I feel the need to make clearer what should be done as regards this ongoing debate. Interestingly, I had answered this in another book I’m working on, so I practically copied and pasted from the draft. Que: We have done the court […]

Courtship is the time to love intelligently; marriage is the time to love blindly. I consider this the most important advice I can give any dating couple. There is a reason why you are not married yet. It is so that you can know each other and discover whether or not you are cut out [...]

by Laju Iren • June 2, 2017

30 things I’ve learnt in my one year of being a mum

by Laju Iren • March 27, 2017

Love versus ‘God said’

by Laju Iren • March 14, 2017

Who chooses your spouse? You or God?   BY LAJU IREN I remember watching a Mount Zion film a few years back.

I used the term ‘supposedly’ with a mischievous […]

by Laju Iren • March 27, 2018
