My Pandemic

Guys, I have to admit to you today, I'm not handling this situation very well. I'm not doing well at all during this lockdown period. We in South Africa are at Level 4 of lockdown, which allows for a little bit more movement since last week. We still have a curfew, no visiting, no large … Continue reading My Pandemic

You have made me brave

How often do we find ourselves in situations that seems impossible to handle on our own. I know I have. I've entered a season in my life where the ground that I'm walking on is not always safe. I have stepped out of my comfort zone and it's scary. I've listened to the constant calling … Continue reading You have made me brave

Let’s rise up

WOW!!! Keith you are iron. If only we had more men like you. You are so right this is a Global disease. Women are being destroyed. Women has become the endangered species here. We need to RISE UP…We need men to RISE UP in support. It’s a huge statement indeed. ARE YOU WITH US?

A terrific singer named Andra Day provided an anthem for women, but also forward thinking men as well. It is called “I’ll rise up.” Here is the final chorus which says let’s all rise up.

“Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousands times again
And we’ll rise up
Rise like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up.”

There has been a building crescendo worldwide, but especially here in the US, to say women matter. Women are tired of being taken advantage of by sexual predators, violent and controlling partners and men in power telling them what they can do with their bodies. Women are tired of people ignoring or demeaning them when they complain or accuse a violator. Women are tired of kitchen table issues like equal pay and healthcare gettimg ignored. Women are…

Positive Quote 07.04

There’s always hope. I needed to see this so much today.

Happy Saturday fellow bloggers!

Blog of a Mad Black Woman

Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.

Michael Morpurgo (b. 1943)

Have a blessed day all.

Being a “Ministry” wife – 6 Wives share

I want to introduce you to Shaveh guys!! I hope she won’t mind…I didn’t even warn her:-) She’s over at https://federfun.wordpress.com and I followed her blog purely because I was seriously contemplating to home school my lil’princess and wanted a close up to see how tough or easy it really was…I learned that Shaveh is dynamite in a cute package.
But not just that, she is also blogging about another honorable role that women plays in this crazy world of ours. ‘Being a ministry wife’.

I love how God leads me when I pray for direction…even for direction when I’m blogging. Again I say, women should be celebrated for all the different roles they portray in our lives.
YES I’m a woman and YES I’m celebrating women too.

The life of 5 Feders

Time is honestly flying by! It’s like, March already. Can somebody pinch me please? While I pull myself towards myself – let’s just dive in shall we. I have been wanting to do this kind of post for a very, very, very, VERY long time. I have been playing with the idea like a cat with a ball of wool. It’s been one of those that I haven’t been too sure about and also, will it be well received? Do people really want to know about this kind of thing…. So after much pondering, and running it by a few people I decided to just do it and see what happens. Not to really get a response, but to see if it will begin to help some people.

Ok, I hear you – what idea is it Shaveh?
