Kanayo invites you to Upcoming Events in April

8 Apr
Hi Everyone!
I hope you’re all well! I have a few events that I’d like to invite you to for the month of April in chronological order.
If you have any upcoming Christian events you’d like me to share on my blog, please email kanayo@doctorkanayo.com with a press release and a poster.
THE RELATIONSHIP TOOLBOX
The Relationship Toolbox

The Relationship Toolbox

Theme: 10 Reasons why it doesn’t work and 10 Tools to fix it
Date: Saturday 12th April, 2014
Time: 4.00pm
Venue: Ithaca House, 27 Romford Road, Stratford, London. E15 4LJ
Tickets: Tickets are free if you register online, £5 at the door!
Whether you are in a romantic relationship, friendship, or familyship,
whatever ship of relations you may be in, this is an event for you…
Why?
Everyone enters a relationship believing that it will turn out well and last forever, either we remain close siblings, best buddies for life or get married… or so we think….
Most people usually start off relationships well-intending, BUT, unfortunately, almost everyone has suffered the loss of a friendship/relationship for one reason or another, and for quite a lot of us its been one too many and very unexpected…but what goes wrong? and Why does this happen and keep happening?
At our up-coming relationship toolbox event we will discuss this matter in terms of all types of relationships from romantic relationships to general friendships.
And it is certain that you will leave this event better equipped and knowledgeable about the psychology of relationships and living life knowing how best to deal with those you relate to in life for the best.
We have a live performance by SGJP and a few other upcoming christian talents.
We will also feature Carole Agoro (Gospel Explosion),  Ify Alexis (Love limitless) and Lao K among others!
Refreshments will be available on the day.

Testimony and Encouragement from @Brother_P_

27 Feb

I was never brought up in a home where God was truly in the center, to be honest life was very difficult for me as a youth growing up, as my mum and dad were not together during majority of my upbringing. Growing up I had my beliefs in God and KNEW of Him but did not actually know God. I always would say “God if you are real, why are all these bad things happening to my family and I”.

Reaching my teens I started attending church frequently, however I was more of LUKEWARM Christian; one day in the club, smoking and drinking, the other days thinking I was perfectly fine as a christian. I then got into sexual relationships whilst in church thinking nothing of it. I thought that if I was going out with a girl then it wouldn’t be much of a sin in Gods eyes. It then became a habit, sexual relationship to sexual relationship whilst I was in church. Being in and out of relationships I started to become rebellious against women and thought that they were all genuinely out just to tease and trick men.

One day, God spoke to me followed by constant dreams which were affecting my day to day life. He showed me many obstacles and distractions, that were taking me away from my purpose to serve Him with a pure heart. I remember breaking down, asking for forgiveness and for him to show me the correct way to serve Him in the right way. I was then led by a brother from my church to read Psalm 86, which was the prayer of David, as David fell and committed such a great sin and then cried out to God. I started reading my bible everyday and made a complete transition to serve God with a pure heart and to never look back, like Lot and his family in Bible. Attending church regularly not just on the Sunday service, but also Bible school and youth events. 

In the midst of serving God I wanted to stay completely true to Him and serve Him entirely with no women in my life, with the understanding that relationships should be kept pure as talked about in 1 Corinthians 6:18. Your body is a temple of God and should be kept holy and acceptable to God. God works in mysterious ways as we know, He then blessed me with a partner who is mightily in love with God and also through God, she found me. We are now courting and by God’s grace will lead to marriage.

Word Of Encouragement…

The bible says in Revelation 3:15-16 “Because you are lukewarm, neither hot, nor cold, I spit you out” beloved stay on fire for God. Your life has a great and mighty purpose like Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I made you in your mothers womb, I chose you” God has your future planned way before time and we as believers can truly do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Do not be double minded when serving God, you are either in or out there is no in between. John 10:10 says “the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but God came to give us life and have it abundantly“. The enemy will try and confuse our knowledge of what we know about Christ hence why some believers and unbelievers perish.

Thank You
I Love You
God Bless You…

A year on…tribute to my dear Ify

18 Feb

On Saturday 23rd February 2013, I lost someone so special to me.

My cousin, who was my sister and my friend.

I have never seen death or had death this close. That day my heart was literally torn apart and I was angry. Watching the paramedics who did everything they could trying to resuscitate her, I touched her feet, I screamed at her to get up, I cried, I rolled, I was silent with questions.

Rest in Peace my beautiful Ify

Why, why why?  My questions were not asked of God. They were thrown angrily and sorrowfully into the void that my suffering was creating between Him and me. Instead of turning to Him for comfort, I writhed alone with my grief. I really didn’t feel like God and I were on speaking terms. The void I had created still between us…RAW and hurting like an open wound. I knew God was on the other side of that void, wanting for me to talk to Him, wanting to forgive me for blaming Him, but I just couldn’t make myself pray.

The frailty of life and reality of death hit me. What was lying on that hospital bed was not my cousin. It was simply a vessel, she, Ify had gone to a place where the human body couldn’t go. I wanted everyone to stop what they were doing, I wanted the world to stop because we had just lost a wife, a mother of three, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend.

I came down to London from university on the Friday night for my churchs’ day seminar called ‘Day with the Lord’ on the Saturday. My cousin and I had been texting each other the day before about how we would catch up after the seminar for our usual gisting sessions. Neither of us knew that our appointment would be snatched away by deaths appointment and that she would have her own ‘day with the Lord’.

The weeks following Ify’s death were hard ones for me. I wish I could say I came back to my senses fast and got on my knees to put things right between God and I, but I didn’t. I pranced around with my fake smile and superficial strength. But God’s word…this WORD.

 “Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
    but he will heal us;
he has injured us
    but he will bind up our wounds. - Hosea 6:1

Tears blurred my eyes as the words pierced into my soul.

My only utterance with floods of tears: ‘I’ve been torn into pieces, Lord, I need you to heal me.’

And a breeze of peace overcame me like never before. A peace that I could not and still don’t understand.

 
There is so much that I could write about my cousin, but I’ve included the less personal memories below. The pain of her loss is almost crippling, but we thank God for His comfort. Ify was a Christian, who served God with everything and in everything. She showed love to everyone she encountered and I have the assurance that she is hidden with Christ in God. Please guys, live your life right and show love whilst you are still able to, tomorrow isn’t promised and yesterday will never come again but today is all you have. KNOW CHRIST. Christians have hope that non-believers struggle to comprehend. For us, death is not the end, it is simply the beginning of what God really wanted for us. I have the assurance that I will be reunited with all my loved ones on that faithful day when God calls me home. That is my faith, whats yours? I choose to praise Him through the tears…will you?
 

A Few Memories We Shared

Scratchy Kay-Kay

Odikwa Angels loool

My cousin was 28 years old. 9 years older than me, she always told me about how I used to scratch her when I was little but she would still carry me because I looked cute and the scratches were bearable and good for ammunition loool for when she would remind me in my older years.

The Choir’s Latest Recruit

I’ve always been a shy girl…hard to believe ayy. I remember when Sister Mercy our choir leader first told me to join the choir at age 11. I tried every trick in the book to avoid singing in front of the congregation, even attempted to miming like a small celeb. Ify and Ifende (her younger sister) were not having none of that, they took me under their wings, encouraged me, allowed me to be shy but became one of many catalysts for the confidence that I have today.

They came to every talent competition I did at Virgo Fidelis, Ify always loved my rendition of Amy Winehouse ‘I’m no good’ at our Year 11 rebellion showcase. She came when I played the lead role in musical at Fairfield halls, she always supported me in everything.

Ify, Ifende and I were the TRIO. Our harmonies were just fantastic. I will always hear Ify’s tenor in my heart, never missing  :) The Odikwa angels, you Igbos will get it! Odikwa was one of Ify’s rinsed out Igbo lines, even my uni girls caught onto her lingo  when they met her loool.

Her beautiful wedding

Laughing was our conversation

I remember when Femi and Ify told me the date for their wedding I was ecstatic. What a glorious occasion it was, both the traditional and white wedding were amazing. Ify asked me to sing her favourite hymn at her wedding ‘I the Lord of sea and sky’ which I did for the first verse and then started crying, thank God Ifende came to help me. We sang the same song at her funeral and I know she will be proud that despite the tears, we pushed through.

The wedding preparations were our greatest times together, we’d be up for hours talking and planning. In fact less planning and more laughing. Ify’s laugh and smile would vibrate the whole room. We had a fun hen night and post wedding celebrations.

Prophetic Gisting Sessions

My cousin told me I would go to China during one of our chill gisting moments wayyyyyyy before I knew of any internship. She always pushed me academically, she herself had completed her degree, was onto her masters worked in her way to the top, whilst getting married, having three kids all in 28 years! She was determined and I pray that I have at least 1/10 of her determination.

I will make you proud Ify, I’m going to China for you hun. She shared my go fund me page so many times even emailed and texted many doners, my thank you isn’t enough for all her encouragement along the way.

We would gist about the potential Boaz’ and the olodo-az loool. My future husband will still get your approval Ify. Femi and Ifende will have to approve of any guy that wants to take your second little sister.

My family are raising money for Ify’s three young sons ages, 10, 5 and 2. It will be hard for her husband to raise them alone, but with the support from the entire family and you all that are able to offer your prayers and monetary support it will be done. Ify was passionate about her Children, she never really called them ‘my kids’, she always said these are OUR boys. We will raise these boys up to be mighty pillers, that is the legacy she has left behind.
Thank you to everyone who has donated offline and online over the year. Please show your support by visiting the page God bless you! http://www.gofundme.com/IfySoile

Life has a sneaky way of knocking people off their feet by throwing before them struggles, hurts, failures and obstacles. The repeated disappointments has a way of changing people’s expectation into the negative and weakening their faith. It is at the point that things begin to spiral out of control, because it is at this point that many people give up. However there are some people that overcome and have faced exactly what you are facing. What does this mean? There is always a way to win. However you have …to discover the secret of overcoming. Remember that your struggle is common to man but you have to discover your way of escape.
This conference has been set apart by God to uncover the secrets to overcoming the challenges in your life so that you can finally win.
Don’t miss it and bring a friend to be blessed.
See you there - As a member of Bright Serenity, I’ll be ministering with the Bright Serenity worship team, make sure you say hello if you come!

Kay’s Reading List

15 Jan

Salve Lectores (Hi Readers)!

After a high demand for my reading list, it is finally here! Click on the picture of the books to access the link to their respective amazon page. The genres of these books range from Romance, Christianity, History, African (especially Nigerian) Novels.  The books I put on here are ones that I have read, I will add more on as I continue to whiz through my Kindle Library. You will find that once I am hooked on an author, I tend to read all of their books and sequels. I’ve written some reviews too! Happy Reading!!!

Christian Dating Doesn’t Suck by Sofia Carta, is an AMAZING BOOK! Literally spoke my life on my life on so many levels. You would have seen me tweet a few excerpts from the book…simple eye-opening and encouraging for us young Christians!

  • Kemi’s Journal by Abidemi Sanusi
  • Loving Mr. Wright by Brenda Barrett
  • Always Yours by Somi Ekhasomhi
  • Hidden Currents by Somi Ekhasomhi 

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is filled with such jubilant grace and charm. A majestically crafted word sculpture. I love how daring Chimamanda was with her writing.

She opened up and touched on the ‘unspoken’ when it came to race. It is so refreshing to have read a book that I can personally relate to on many facets. Not many books make me miss my stop on the train…but this one certainly did…multiple times . I want to be friends with the protagonists Ifemelu & Obinize loool.

Here’s a quote from the book that will stick with me forever. ‘Race is not biology; race is sociology. Race is not genotype; race is phenotype.’

  • The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu
  • The V Woman by Christiane Cardosos
  • Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
  • Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers
  • The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

Pictures

Absolutely loved reading the Beauty for Ashes series by Dayo Benson. Following Lexi on her journey to beauty was both liberating and sobering. The characters were relevant and relate-able on so many levels.  Definitely a recommended few reads! You won’t be disappointed!

  • Raw Deal by Dayo Benson (Beauty for Ashes Series: Book One)
  • Red Carpet by Dayo Benson (Beauty for Ashes Series: Book Two)
  • Refiner’s Fire by Dayo Benson (Beauty for Ashes Series: Book Three)

The Shawneda Marks Collection:

  • Embracing myself now by Shawneda Marks
  • Beyond my status by Shawneda Marks
  • It’s in my blood by Shawneda Marks
  • Love Is…by Shawneda Marks
  • My Crowning Glory by Shawneda Marks
  • I am not my hair by Shawneda Marks

Boaz Brown by Michelle Stimpson. I love how real this book was. A lot of black females struggle with the concept of loving a man of a different race – it was nice to see LaShondra overcome her prejudice and enjoy the love that God always wanted her to have for others beyond colour. Very encouraging. Few typos here and there, but it didn’t take away much focus from the actual book.

Stepping Down by Michelle Stimpson. I love how real Michelle was about the struggles of being in ministry and shepherding your family. A conflict that many ministers experience but they usually let one slide. I love her use of the characters to portray this and the solution which was and IS Christ! Challenges all the prosperity preachers and tells us to go back to the drawing board and really focus on God…everything else will fall into place.

The Brenda Barrett Collection:

  • If it ain’t broke by Brenda Barrett
  • Unholy Matrimony by Brenda Barrett
  • Saving Face by Brenda Barrett
  • Tattered Tiara by Brenda Barrett
  • Christian Women, No-Church Men by Lydia Paul
  • In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man by Michelle McKinney Hammond
  • A Place Called Here by Cecelia Ahern

Private Sins by Brenda Barrett. Loved this book! It deals with the ‘worst-case’ scenario for a Pastor…Adultery in the leadership of a church. This is something that is unspoken of, so it was nice to have this book tell a story which almost reflected the relationship Hosea had with his wife Gomer. In this case Kelly was a toned-down, remorseful Gomer – and Theo was a ‘wannabe’ Hosea; He got there in the end! Go ahead and read the sequel in the Three Rivers Series!

  • He’s fine but is he saved? by Kim Brooks
  • He’s saved but is he for real? by Kim Brooks
  • Imagine This by Sade Aderinan
  • Fatal Attraction by Carol Smith
  • If you could see me now by Cecelia Ahern
  • P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

EYO by Abidemi Sanusi. Many have made that all desiring journey from Nigeria to the UK. Some by their own will with good intentions and others like Eyo, forced and clueless of what awaited her in the UK. Embarked on a journey to a land filled with ‘opportunities’ and ‘opportunists’; people were jealous but “In the UK (uukayy) she had water at her finger tips but she never felt more unclean in her life”. 

This story was an emotional journey from Nigeria to the UK uncovering the raw reality of child sex trafficking.Something that society doesn’t wink at but blatantly turn our heads to ignore it as if it isn’t happening. At times this book was unbearable to read, yet those tugs on my heart refused to allow me to put the book down. Eyo’s story is one of many other young girls, despite this being a fictional novel, there is a kernal of truth on every page! It’s time we break the chain. Break the cycle of abuse. Speak out.

The Kiru Taye Collection

  • A Valentine Challenge by Kiru Taye
  • An Engagement Challenge by Kiru Taye
  • Island Bound by Kiru Taye
  • His Strength (Men of Valor Series) Book One
  • His Treasure (Men of Valor Series) Book Two
  • His Princess (Men of Valor Series) Book Three

GOD HAS DAUGHTERS TOO by Abidemi Sanusi. I absolutely loved it! Well written insight into the lives of some key women in the Old Testament of The Bible. I particularly enjoyed how Abidemi relayed the story of these women in a way that is relevant for the present day with hints of light humor, causing me look at these women in the Bible in a different light. Definitely a must read for all ladies! 

‘There are no perfect families, only families that are being perfected’ ,’God turns those seasons of ashes into coverings of beauty’.

  • The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives by Lola Shoneyin
  • On Black Sisters’ Street by Chika Unigwe
  • Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
  • I do not come to you by chance by Adaobi Tricia Nwabuni
  • When broken chords sing by Abimbola Dare (My Review Here)

The Small Print by Abimbola Dare – I’m a psychology undergraduate, but i can honestly say that it was a bessing for me to take time out, drop my textbooks and journal articles to read this book.
It captured me from the very start, with the characters gradually coming to life after each chapter. To crown it all, the underlying Christian message in the whole book, was well embedded, whilst retaining the african culture. The book was very very funny, I even had to share a few passages with my housemates.I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!!!!
