Are you a lover in diapers or are you a mature lover? Sounds strange to say that love can be classified as mature or childish, but it is not far from the truth. This is a lesson that I learn every week with my wife. It began when we were dating and has never stopped since. What does it mean…More

When I completed my high school studies I was thrilled, to say the least. Perhaps my enthusiasm had something to do with resting my cerebral cortex after four years of cramming, reading and studying principles that I have still not put to application. I mean, really, who uses Flemming’s left hand rule in life? Or perhaps it had to do…More

I had a lot of fears growing up. I feared I would not find a decent girl to marry. I feared not being liked by my circle of friends. I feared not being appreciated after doing a good job. I feared not performing well in my academics. I feared losing my family members to death, amongst many other fears. I…More

I have been in a cell before. The walls are tall. The concrete is cold and so is the ambience. The public vehicle I was in together with 13 other passengers had no seat belts. We were all arrested, handcuffed and thrown into a gloomy and drab cell in the basement of the Nairobi City Kilimani law courts. For the…More

When I say that the world is full of wicked people, what comes to your thoughts? I’m sure your mind is reeling with images of thieves, rapists, murderers and people behind bars (whichever bar comes to mind first). When the term wicked is used, you probably think of the real-life example of Darth Vader, Loki, The Joker of Gotham City…More

One of the ways in which you can kill an inquisitive conversation is by saying, “God told me.” It’s a tactic that hardly fails. A friend of mine got into a questionable relationship that led them down a terrible path. One of my pals and I decided to confront them about it. We were their friends and we weren’t too pleased that…More

Have you ever felt so angry at someone that the words that came from your mouth were equivalent to Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the soul? Or have you been so depressed that, though you have never voiced it, you contemplated suicide? Have you been so excited before that your thrill and joy caused you to act totally out of character?…More

Dear reader, In 2012 I made a radical decision to get married young from an impression I received from the Lord. Today’s blog has something to do with that. Today’s blogpost is by a friend to my wife and I. Her name is Esther (AKA Ess). The three of us served in the Student government at USIU in the years…More

In 2003, I did something foolish. A girl I didn’t know signed my autograph book in primary school and I lashed out at her. Apart from the verbal damage I caused, I drove the nail deeper when I ripped out the page she signed before her very own eyes. I had a very strong choleric nature and in the discomfort…More

Bart at the cross Bart was having the horror of his life. For this moment in his life, he wished his eyes would fail. He wished his blindness returned. He was still getting accustomed to the visual life of colour and the beauty of trees, buildings and the faces of people. He looked at the man hanging on the…More

My country celebrates a 50-year jubilee of independence this year. Kenyans like myself expect a lot during this anniversary. We expect a new president. We expect a new parliament. We expect a better police force. On a personal level, there are things that I too expect. I expect to get a raise. I expect to be in good health. I…More

This weekend, I was faced with the hard decision of bribing a police officer or paying a hefty fine that would require surgical removal of my kidneys for auction. I seem to have a high affinity towards police officers. Last year, I missed my Spanish DELE exam because the matatu I was in was stopped by traffic officers. I was…More

Jesus requires a generation of youth in the 21st century to have these characteristics: holiness and Christlikeness! How can we be those things however when the reality is that sex is the theme of our TV screens? Loose tongues are on our radios today and hatred for the things that are of God is rampant in almost every inch of…More

Scores of brilliant men and women have lived and died. In all their funerals, what was most important wasn’t what they did but who they were. You’re alive and reading this blog. So, who are you? They say, ask a man who he is and he will tell you what he does. Ask a woman who she is and she…More
