Published a book, God of All My Seasons | 2011

God of All My Seasons looks at God presence in our lives in all our seasons. Life does not always bring what we expect. We sometimes feel sad and it seems everything is against us. We fall and struggle to get up again. We sometimes lack things and then have them in abundance. Sometimes we feel ill and then healthy. Sometimes you live in fear and then feel protected. These are seasons of our life. We will have a season where everything goes very well. Then go through a season where we encounter problems in life which challenges us to change of lives. We find ourselves fighting the same battle every year. We sometimes have a feeling of giving up in life. It is because we feel that the burden is too much. Some of the burdens make us to give up in life.

This book teaches about the way we need to relate to God. It will teach you that when you are sick, He is there to heal you. When you lack anything then He will provide. He will fight for you when you are battling with your enemies. It is through tough seasons in our lives that we think that God is not with us. We ask ourselves, why do we have such problems if God loves us?

Published a book, Living Life That Pleases God | 2010

Living life that pleases God is a book that teaches about the important things we need to do in our lives that our Lord Jesus Christ taught us. This book explores questions that I asked God in way of understanding, how to live life that pleases Him? The answers provided are from the Bible. I was inspired by the way these topics helped people whom I shared these with, and I decided to write a full book. This book indicates that living life that pleases God:

-Is not easy because you need to follow the God’s word,

- Is not only about you, but also about helping, blessing, loving, and forgiving others,

-- Is about growing in the knowledge of God, and

- Is about having a genuine relationship with God.

Living life that pleases God is not easy it is a journey that you will need to start and learn as you go along. I hope that you will find this book helpful. I pray that the Lord guides you as you endeavour into this journey.
