  1. ‘Playing with culture without the covering of godly values can be dangerous.’ – this is the danger in monocultural and diaspora churches, I feel, where traditions (brought from the motherland) supersede gospel principles.

    A divorcee is definitely not ‘less than’. Sorry that you have been treated badly for this, and everything that accompanies it in a shame & honour society.

    I love your writing! Thank you for sharing your story.

    Big hugs, Jessie x

  2. The understanding and acceptance that you so eloquently write about is a true testament to the amazing friend, incredible mother and the beautiful human being that we all know and love. Keep writing, don’t ever stop. “I can shake off everything as I write. My sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn” Anne Frank. Much Love, Devaki
