“Now listen, you who say , “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

James 4:13-14

After the death of NBA Legend Kobe Bryant, age 41 and his 13 year old daughter Gianni in a tragic helicopter crash, the Me to We Talk Podcast began to take stock of our own lives and though we realized that tomorrow is never promised. The shock of an accomplished superstar and his beautiful child was heart wrenching. It made us value our children, our loved ones that much more! Most of all, it made us take a hard look in the mirror and ask ourselves are we ready to stand before the Lord? No matter, what your beliefs are…every knee shall bow and every mouth shall confess. We must be ready to give an account of our lives. Just like a vapor…a mist…or like a heavy fog…life is fleeting. It is here one moment and gone the next. Are we proud of who we are? Of who we have become? Are we what God intended us to be when he created us? Tough questions…we know but shouldn’t we ask this ourselves without such a tragedy prompting us to take notice?

Join the conversation, and ask yourself do you and your loved ones have a relationship with Lord? We encourage you to “Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near”. Isaiah 55:6

  1. Please I need help. I need advice.
    Am Grace.
    Am married for 2years and 7months with a baby of 3months though I lost my first baby.
    1. We live in a bedroom apartments. My husband, I and his elder sister. Before marriage there were living together before getting married I told my husband to do something about her sister stay in the house he agreed but does nothing up till now. I decided not cause trouble because of it but I kept reminding my husband about he never said anything about it. I don’t want to tell the sister myself to look for her own appartment. She is 36 years And she is have a business and people working for her that she pays salary. Her presence in my home is making it difficult for me to bond with my husband. We are talk she will be earstroping in our conversation. I have also respect her. But force myself yo leave as if she does not exit in my home. Please what do I do?

    2. My husband is making this marriage difficult for me. He provides food thats what he is very good at. Am a graduate and am not yet working. My needs are not properly met by him.
    My main problem is that, my husband finds it very difficult to communicate with me. Its not that he is the quite type of person he is not. Communicate effectively with people outside but not with me. If I try to create room to talk I will be the to talk from the beginning to the end. He will not ask questions and he will not contribute this implies in every aspect. If I ask him question he will find a reason to leave the scene without answering. This gets me angered and most times make me to say so many words that will hurt and provoke him to talk but he won’t say a word.
    He takes alcohol. When ever he is drunk that the only time he can talk to me at least I will know few things on him mind that i said that hurt him. And at that time he expect me to reply so that May end up fighting. In those time I don’t usually say a word. I love him I have being reading books on marriage trying different strategy on him but he even make it worst for me cause he is not responding to my strategy. I have being trying all I can to make this marriage work it seems nothing id working for him. I never denies him sex. I am beautiful my husband has never appreciate that. If see me crying he dont care to ask whats the problem. I always hide to cry because he does not care.
    After our marriage I don’t know anything about my husband. I even realise that most of the things he told me while we are courting were lies. Recently I notice he is cheating on me I have not confront him about it. He comes home late when I ask him his reason for coming late he will say it’s business or he won’t say a word.
    Am seriously in pain. Am hurt I feel like leaving the marriage and I also wish the my marriage work. I really don’t know what to do. Please I need advice. I don’t know who to tell because I the person will laugh at my situation. I tried to tell my mum parts of the story she was hurt her only advice was for me to leave the marriage. Please I need advice.

  2. Please don’t mind my writings just try a.d understand. Am writing with pain in my heart. I felt like leaving today but I want God to direct me that was I came across this site.
