BEING A PASTOR’S WIFE: Key Realities (Mary Lawal)

You are probably not married yet, nor do you have a fiancé who is a pastor (yet). Because of this, you would probably want to stop reading the moment you saw the title. Hold on.

Ask yourself, “If you met your 15-year-old self right now, what would you tell her?” Take a minute. Tick! Tock! Tick! Tock! Done? Good!

THERE IS MORE TO SUCCESS; PREPARE FOR IT

I love to play Football Manager, and it’s been my best game so far – even more so since I can’t play real football.

This morning though, while playing, I set a lineup for an Euro Exhibition match against Switzerland. But because it was an almost inconsequential match, I promoted about eight academy players and fielded (used) five in the first eleven!

Subsequently, I was afraid I could lose for fielding weak players, so I set my seven substitute players to be my best players; Messi, Cruyff, Frenkie de Jong, etc., game changing players.
