IDENTITY CRISIS: MY STORY, GOD’S GLORY

After I wrote my third book, “there was a girl”, I knew there was more, but I was not ready. I was not ready to be vulnerable. I was not ready to share my deepest secrets with strangers. I started writing Identity crisis in 2020, but I closed it because I was scared.

When Papa spoke to me about sharing my story, I argued and gave him all the reasons I should not write this book. Like the loving father that he is, he let me be, but the problem was that I was not feeling satisfied. I felt like I had lost a sense of purpose and was doing things on my own.

I could be a very stubborn girl, but Papa has been teaching me, and gradually I am learning to die to self. I picked up my pen and continued this book. I finished and shared it with my husband. I was looking for every excuse not to publish this story. He said to me, “If God asks you to do this, you need to, and I will support you.”

I had someone in mind for the foreword, but the Lord told me it had to be my mom. Boy, I was scared because I didn’t know how she would receive it. She knows the story, and she helped me walk through forgiveness but writing it in a book, I knew she would never approve, but all God wanted me to do was obey.

I ignored Papa and reached out to this person I had in mind; she said she would be honoured to write the foreword. I was expecting her article when she sent me a mail to send my number that she would love to call me; she called as promised and gave me the shocking news. She said she was struggling to write a foreword. She said she was not getting the urge to go ahead. She apologized, and right there, I knew God had set me up.

After weeks of struggling, I sent the manuscript to my mom. She called back and asked me why I was writing this book. She said she would pray about it and get back. Some days later, she sent the foreword, prayed with me, and encouraged me. That was the biggest sign I needed to get this vision running.

THE BROKEN EDGE

 

Hi guys,

Let me tell you a story, one that is short and also interesting.

I met a young, talented, gifted and passionate writer sometimes in September. The aura and the ambience she portrayed carried grace, this is not some fantasy but reading through her poetry I knew right there that the world deserved to meet this beautiful writer.

She called me one evening and said to me “I want to participate in the okadabooks campus writing challenge” I couldn’t help but dance my shaku shaku dance because I knew that this is a step to greatness. She wrote the story and no flattery I was amazed at the beauty of the story.

The broken edge has five short chapters, it is the story of a young lady who was broken, cracked, damaged and heartbroken. If you are an emotional somebody like me, there is a high chance that this story will bring you to tears.

Let me leave the story, the broken edge made it to the top 150 stories for the competition and when I heard the news I danced like a little girl who just got a bowl of ice-cream. We really need your help to bring her to the top. We need your vote!

LOVE BEYOND WORDS BY TEMIDAYO OGUNLEYE

Love! Love! Love!

You know that word right? It’s so popular and yet terribly abused. Love on its own is beautiful but really it seems we still don’t understand what real love means but the real meaning of Love is found in God. How do we describe a man who came to pay the sacrifices for what he didn’t do, he actually died to set us free, what kind of love is that? I still can’t fathom that love till date.

Defining love is actually defining God, God is love and Love is God and we can never fully understand and know how to Love until we know God. It’s really not my job to do that today but I’ve got someone who can perfectly describe what love means, this lady has encountered this love so divine and I can say she is qualified to describe this love that is beyond words.

Temidayo wrote a book titled ‘Love beyond words’ it’s a book filled with poetic lines that describes love in simple yet enriching words. Yes, it’s your baby girl that wrote the foreword so I endorse this book. What are you waiting for?

THERE WAS A GIRL

 

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me start by appreciating you for visiting my blog and more importantly for choosing to pick your copy of my new book “There was a girl”. This means a lot to me!!!! Thank you!!!

I want to specially introduce you to this book “THERE WAS A GIRL”. It is a story of the girl I was and how I encountered grace. The truth is we all have stories and writing this book is not as exciting as I thought it was going to be, it took an unusual grace and total surrender to write this story in its raw form. This is a part of my story, it is basically the story of how I battled with a self-esteem and depression as a young lady.

There were days that the only thing I thought about was suicide, I have had to wonder if God was really alive but I am a proof that God is alive and His love will always find you just like it found me and pulled me out.

Nobody wants to be the odd one, nobody wants to be treated like a chaff and that is not even God’s plan for any one of us, he wants us to shine so that in turn we glorify Him. I do know what it feels like to be that odd person, to be talented yet unnoticed but I want to tell you that it’s not over and you don’t have to remain in the cell of depression.

Guess what?

This book opened my eyes personally too and it brought me close to tears at some point because just like you I’m an ordinary girl who had nothing special but extra was added to my Ordinary when I discovered who I really am in Christ Jesus.

I can guarantee you that it is going to be worth your time and the juicy part is that it is ABSOLUTELY FREE. I wish I could say this book was all my idea but that would be a total lie it came as inspiration and I knew right there that is what God wanted me to do this season.

Thank you so much for being a part of this vision, thank you for choosing to pick up this book. I could not have done without you. Please do me a favour make sure you share this book on your social media pages and with everyone you know. People are committing suicide daily and it’s all because they couldn’t get the right help but together we can make a great impact in the world.

Once again, thank you for choosing to read this book.

Ready to read about the girl I was and how I found God’s love?
