Blog Reader Rejected Guy's Marriage Proposal; Now She Wants Him to Propose Again

Hello Aunty Laila, please I need help urgently... I'm a regular TILB reader... 
I met this guy last year (2013), in the month of August precisely. I was 21 then but a graduate, working in one of the media organisations and he is in his mid 30's and very comfortable. He came to my office for advert and we exchanged numbers based on client level... nothing more. He later asked me out for a date... yeah.... I went.  
After much discussion, he asked me to marry him and I was like, you barely know me.... infact, I felt disgusted by the word "marriage" (within me, I knew I didn't like him and I thought I would never). He was like, yes I met you some days ago but I already feel like I have known you all my life, and that I have all the qualities he wants in a woman (independent, graduate and beautiful). I told him I

Update on Pastor Chris Oyakhilome & Anita Divorce: Facebook Page Writes Again

This is the Facebook page that first made public the issues between Pastor Chris Oyakhilome & wife, Pastor Anita. I just went back to check up on them and this is what I found. The page had shared this memo you are about to read last week, then news about Pastor Anita filing for divorce emerged yesterday.

Hmmm, it's not easy o. The whole story surrounding this couple, that I must admit I love so much, baffles and amazes me. There's just so much going on within. Please read...
Dear Brothers and Sisters, 
It is very interesting that we requested the closure of this page and were informed that in 14 days, the page will shut down. But... its still here! What happened? 
 The Lord needs the page open! The purpose obviously has not been achieved. There is a huge question still hanging - "Where is Rev. Anita Oyakhilome?" 
 I believe the Lord allowed our silence to show us and all of you who are concerned about the ministry just how deep the problems are.  It is not surprising the negative, abusive and insultive comments people have come here to make against others because they decided to stand up for truth and speak up.  
 The truth is that most of these people know the truth but the devil will not give up

What Would You Do if this Happened to Your Child at School? (Graphic Photos)

  • How have you been coping without a wife?
