Do not forgive us our sins | Chike Anre John

A wise Israelite king once wrote, “A good name is more desirable than great riches.” Not small riches. Not average riches. Great riches.

Stories and the power they wield | Chike Anreti John

Growing up in Freetown Sierra Leone some of my favorite movies were Indiana Jones Temple of Doom, King Solomon’s mines, Tarzan, and the likes.

Time is fair to none, and the future reveals itself to nobody. A well written piece dedicated to a future she hasn’t seen. A son, never seen before but prayers are already been made for him.
