Reflecting on my EdD journey, I am reminded of the determined 16-year-old version of myself who set her sights on becoming an academic doctor.

But, with my Nigerian parent's nickname for me, "Doctor Kanayo," ringing in my ears, I remained undaunted.

Psalm 23:4 – #BeautyInTheBeast
‘EVEN THOUGH I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil’. - Psalm 23:4 The conjunction ‘even though’ makes me understand that the valley is an expected part of the Christian walk. The word ‘walk’ makes me understand I need not run through this valley experience and I dare not stand still. The only thing I need to do is walk WITH God. And if I ever felt compelled to 'run', it would only be into the name of JESUS (Proverbs 18:10). Finally, the word ‘through’ is a word of hope in this verse. ‘Through’ tells me that the valley is not its not a permanent experience.
Beauty In HIS Pain – #BeautyInTheBeast

Sometimes God will let you go through to let you know that He IS! I pray that this testimony will spin the world and that many will come to the revelation of God through this. May this testimony serve as a reminder that God is able to pull you out from the depths of death and that He is still Jehovah Rapha — the Lord who Heals.
