Hey to all the ladies out there and maybe gentlemen.
We (Kanayo & Susan) have teamed up to do a challenge this month in celebration of the release of ‘Living Waters’ written by Susan Deborah’s at the end of this month.
This month’s challenge is going to be very different and m interactive because we would like to create a forum where everyone can be honest and transparent; so that we can help each other grow.
Living Waters is a book based on John 4 about a Samaritan woman who meets Jesus at the well. God graced me with the creativity to expand on the story and explore her life before she met Christ and look at her life after she had met Christ to emphasise the impact of an encounter with Christ.
Now this woman wasn’t any woman, she was a woman with issues, she had been married five times and the man that she was with wasn’t even her husband. I don’t know about you but alarms start to ring when someone gets married more than three times in this day and age, it really starts to expose instability, dissatisfaction and loneliness just to name a few.
This woman was a woman in need of divine attention that no man was able to give to her. Her issue was not the fact that nobody loved her; the issue was not whether she could find the one. The issue was she needed something that went beyond a human hand. This was something that God had to step in for and by grace she encountered Christ and then stepped into purpose and identity.
Now, we may not have five husbands but those five husbands can represent different issues that we battle with on a daily basis. Struggles are not wrong to have until we refuse to face it and deal with it.
Now in this challenge, we are going to be looking at five prime issues that plague us from day to day, we will be looking at a prime issue every week for four weeks.
We will be sharing scriptures daily, experiences with each other on how we overcame those issues to encourage other people that might be facing the same thing.
For Week one we will be uncovering Self-Esteem and Insecurity . So we will explore this topic for one week.
Make sure throughout the challenge you tag #LWChallenge, You can email any notes or testimonials you would like to share via: email@example.com
Tweet us individually:
The aim of this challenge is to share our shortcomings to help to build others. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Revelation 12:11 NIV)

Kanayo is a Multi-award winning, Author and Senior leader in education whose experience ranges from being a Deputy Head of Sixth Form, Head of Psychology and Lead Practitioner. Kanayo believes that these 3 elements are the driving force of her ministry and career. D.I.G; Drive, Integrity and Grace.
Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!
If you have anything you would like me to blog about, do let me know by either commenting, or contacting me via my contact form.
Thank you for visiting my blog. With love, Kanayo x
