5 Books I Think Every Woman Should Read in THESE Times



Two things I need to get out today.

First of all, let it be on record that I have never told anybody, not one single person. That I, Abimbola Essien-Nelson (nee Adefolalu), Mama First Born Son, Only Princess and Last Born Son, Iyawo Henry, Egbon, Shola ati Tokunbo, formerly known as DNW, now known as Salt, that I was or am perfect or above reproach in any way! Never!

Second of all, even if I did; if  you believed me then, with all due respect, may I just say that you were quite foolish to do so. Please I take God beg you, know today that I am no better or worse than you and to be honest neither of us has the right to judge the other so leave matter o jare! People really need to stop dragging 'Judge' work with my PapaGod. I tire! 


Ehen, Okay, let me move on now to the koko of today's blog! Lol!


But seriously, while I admit to not being perfect or knowing everything, there is one thing I know for sure right now.

And it is this this:  You see these books I have pasted all over this page? If you want to grow, if you want to mature, if you want to walk in godly wisdom, if you want to walk with discernment, if you want to be the 'Unique You' God has called you to be as you travel on This Your Journey. If you want to understand the 'koko' of this Heart Matter called marriage. If you want to understand the power of unforgiveness and how letting go of your Burning Hurt will release your blessings. If you want to harness the Power of sister-collaboration. Then my sister, you will seek out these books and read them.


The five books I am sharing with you are must reads for various reasons as listed above.  I shall not be blowing any grammar today. Just go and get your copy and if you don't get anything out of them, call me, I shall give you back your money. Fair enough, right? Right. So let's go!









Let's go get our wisdom on because women of God, in the times we are living today, we need wisdom and lots of it!  I am sure they are all available on Amazon and/or at Laterna Bookstores here in Lagos, Nigeria and if you need me to hook you up to any of the authors, do let me know, I am willing and praise God, I am able! *smiling*

  4. Dear Salt, this is my first visit to DNW and SALT. I got the link through Uniquely Woman. I find your writing humorous and refreshingly engaging. I have Sista Power already and it comes Highly Recommended! I will look out for the others. I like the way you celebrated your birthday. I trust your society of friends truly made your heart happy. I hope you had a joy-filled day celebrating the goodness of God in your life. Warm thots and God bless.

  5. Hi dear Sis Salt! Nice to know that there are dependable sistas in the house. I have actually read Bidemi's 'Sista Power' severally. I have had to share reading the Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman with my daughter who happens to love the title so much! Audrey is a wonderful writer and I hope to read her book' Uniquely Woman.' Thanks for sharing.

  8. My dear sistapillar, I do not know how you do it in the midst of your own grief and pain, but that is one of the special. things about you. You go beyond the talk, to walking it, and as a result, we are blessed beneficiaries. Thank you very much for the promo. I've read 3 out of the 5 books and will go in search of the other 2- It's a Journey, and Matters Of The Heart. God bless you in every way sis.
