For Teenage girls
1st August 2018
All the time I hear all the many people talk about how women are still not equal. Movements like #Me Too have stormed the social media world. You can’t be seen as a proper woman without being a feminist. We can thank a woman called Betty Friedan for all of this.
In this series of blogs, I will be taking you through all the pros and cons of the “isms” in this world, as I feel that as teenage girls we must be acutely aware of what is going on around us in order for us to respond as God’s girls. Read more

The Pilgrim progress is a book written by John Buyan, and the 2nd most read book after the Bible. I have had the privilege of reading this book as a child severally, and I read another version of it recently as I did my school work. On the blog for today, I want to share with you what I took.
Pilgrim’s Progress is an allegory based on a believer’s journey on earth. I will be explaining the different points in the book comparing them with a believer’s journey to heaven. Read more
Hi everyone, I am back again. Today, I am going to talk about the ‘ism’ of Liberalism. Liberalism is everywhere and has everyone, especially young people in its grasps. Liberalism is the most potent ‘ism’ in young people; as a young person I feel Liberalism everywhere. Nowadays, everyone expects all young people to be liberal. As an anti-liberalist I think that to assume all young people are liberal is wrong, but to get to the bottom of this ‘ism’ we have to dig deeper.
Liberalism is a political view of liberty for all and equality. Of course, liberty sounds like a good thing, but all is not well that seems well. Equality also sounds good, but at what price? Liberalists believe in equality for all, which is very good, but sometimes it is not good, especially when it contradicts God’s word. Read more
Aestheticism is the artistic and intellectual movement originating in Britain in the late 19th century and is characterised by the doctrine that beauty is the basic principle from which all other principles, especially moral ones, are derived.
Everyone loves beauty, our society is built on the principle: the more beautiful you are the more valued you are. Even though you may be thinking that isn’t me, I don’t care that much about beauty, I don’t believe people’s worth or value is in how beautiful they are. But isn’t that what you show when you snob the girl in school who everyone calls ugly, or when you spend at least 2 hours to do your makeup before you go out, or when you apply so many filters on your Instagram or Snap-chat to make yourself look so beautiful. All of that adds to the belief that beauty is everything.
Why not defy society and not wear makeup one day, or talk to that girl who everyone snobs or go, “No Filter” for a week? The Bible says in Proverbs 31:30, Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. See! Charm is deceptive, looking immaculate could actually hide something deep inside, and as for beauty well, in the end we all grow old. Read more
