“Mount Moriah is a book of inspiration that helps to understand the different ways we sacrifice and the provisions that are available during those times.”

Synopsis:

The Lord wanted to test Abraham’s love and faith, and told him to sacrifice his son Isaac (who was the child of promise). He did not doubt God or ask questions, rather he obediently took the child to Mount Moriah to sacrifice. Right there, at the point of sacrificing his son, the Lord stopped him and provided a lamb to use instead.

The Lord did not only provide, He became certain of Abraham’s trust and love for Him. What are we sacrificing today? Could God be testing our faith and love for Him? Could He have already made provisions available? This book explains it all using the writer’s personal testimonies and journey with God.

Pearlwoman August issue cover graced by Serena Williams.

The world at her feet, Serena Williams continues to dominate the world of Tennis.
However, it’s not just the world of Tennis that’s being dominated by women. Politics and world leadership is now women’s footstool as you will find in this highly  loaded quality content issue.
Pearlwoman cover
Women are finally taking their place in world leadership. Cover graced by world no.1, Serena Williams, we bring you detailed and intelligent views on different areas where women have moved another step further.
From Theresa May, to Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton, women are unapologetically changing the rule of the game.
We did not leave out fashion too as in this time, masculine dressing is no longer a woman’s definition of power dressing and has nothing to do with establishing a woman’s authority and or professionalism.
Despite the progress, women are still vilified and abused in several cultures. Check out our hot topics on the discussion about childlessness.
On beauty, we take a look at the top 8 natural skincare brands you must try out now and they’re all so sweet. Hard to decide which is the bomb. See for yourself.

Divas of colour 2016 was a huge success .

Doc 1London, 29/03/2016. The 3rd annual gathering of world’s most powerful women of colour, Divas of colour has again been a great success. With 24 brand exhibitors, 6 fashion designers 24 award recipients and guests from around the world – Germany, US , Caribbean and Africa flew in to witness a beautiful day.

 

Hosted by the Queen of screen , producer, multi-award winning media personality, Priscilla Nwikpo with her co-host, the award winning bestselling author of the acclaimed title, Humility of the Brain, Eze Ihenacho.

The highlight of the night being Faustina’s  live interview of Nigerian German based self taught painter , Vivian Timothy who’s paintings has been an out cry o the social, humanitarian and environmental neglect going on in Nigeria and Africa at large.

In her opening speech, Faustina Anyanwu, the founder of Divas of colour, urged parents and adults to be more alert to the activities of certain charities that take advantage of African children,  continually perpetuating negative and depressing image of African children, diminishing the human value of our children. She went on to say that protecting our children should go beyond preventing physical abuse but also should include psychological abuse.
