In Atilola's Words

I am exhausted  but very happy and I cannot brag on God enough. He is just God all by himself. Being as I am so knackered right now I am going to allow @tilola give you an insight into how the first ever DNW Book signing event went today.  I just love this hard working, energetic young woman and here, In Atilola's Words is a sneak preview into how today went down. It was just glorious and I brag on God with all my might. I shall blog my own blog and post my own photos tomorrow hopefully or over the weekend.

BUT, today like I told all those who came for the book signing,  I must tell you that this day, the 4th of October 2012, I laid down the name, Desperate Naija Woman and took on my new God given name. Remember the name I said God gave me at the onset of this year? I blogged about it and in fact it was my very first blog of  2012 ( I am Salt). Yes, God, through the words of my mgm, gave me a new name in 2012. He called me Salt. And so, as you may have noticed I have changed my blog title and tweaked my blog format a bit to commemorate this awesome day of new things. New beginnings! Praise God! I am proud of all my DNW books and they will still be on sale all over the place. It is just that I cease to refer to myself or my future writings  by that name. That season is over.

Before I fall off this couch and konk my head, let me go to bed. I have work tomorrow and I am sure it is just waiting for me plenty. No matter, I can do all things o jare especially after seeing How God moved for me today. Those Laterna people were not messing around! I cannot thank them enough and all the people that showed up for me. Ha! God is just God all by himself. 
.
OK, this one that I am repeating myself.....let me go and sleep..............Kachifo my people! Ibilola, thank you for coming so early to keep me company. I truly enjoyed our gistfest and Atilola, thank you so much for being there and blogging about it so sweetly. I will think of a way to 'retaliate' the both of you*smiling sleepily*

To God alone be ALL the glory.

    1. Eeeeya. Never mind Creative Works. At least you were with us in your heart. I was so blessed that the rain only started after most people had arrived the venue........God truly supported me. Praise him indeed.

    1. Rara o! Not Evelyn Salt. God's own Salt. Yes, I know it will be a tad confusing for a bit but very soon, everyone will be used to the name change. Thank you Sugarspring. I like the way you said 'it is still home'. Just love that. And that is why your wish is my command!

  8. I read the Atilola's review of the event before coming here. Congrats on the book signing. And your change of name, I can only believe it is for the good of a larger thing. I just wished I had been at that event. Like I commented on Atilola's blog, school held me back from coming down. One day, I will read this book and write my thoughts on it.

    Your blog has a new nice look, I like it.

    1. Isn't it just so cool? Sorry, I like the new name so much and I cannot help it. God is just so on point. And if you read the scripture he gave me over the weekend, you will understand why I am even more excited. I just cannot wait to see what God is up to (cos I cannot lie, I cannot see it in full but I am cool with that as long as He goes on ahead in front to make it all come to pass, abi?) Thanks Zee!

      Yes, Sister Salt!!!!! Glory!
