Short Description: Twice in my life, I’d been involved in terrible car accident which could have led to untimely death, but for the mercy of God only, it was prevented. And I was a terrible sinner then. I know you also can recall several instances in your life when God had prevented some bad things from happening to you. I also know that you can only attribute such deliverance to nothing but the Mercy of God. But friend, God wants each of us to move beyond this Common Mercy into enjoying the fullness of His Grace. That Saving Grace entered into my life while attending a 3-day prayer and fasting program as a visitor at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Church, Karu, Abuja in 2009.The last cigarette I took the evening before the program was the last I had ever taken. That divine encounter led to terminating the 15 years of addiction to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Also two years after the program, I was delivered from 21 years of sleeplessness (also known as Insomnia). These all happened through the Grace of God and by the application of certain Biblical principles stated in this book. If the person follows these principles which led to the restoration of my battered destiny and currently giving my life stability and meaning, then such a person will surely in no distant time give a testimony. God is no respecter of persons, if HE has done it for me, HE can as well do it for anyone.

Short Description: ‘There are things even love can’t do . . . If the burden is too much and stays too long, even love bends, cracks, comes close to breaking and sometimes does break. But even when it’s in a thousand pieces around your feet, that doesn’t mean it’s no longer love . . .’

Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother in-law wants, and she has tried everything – arduous pilgrimages, medical consultations, dances with prophets, appeals to God. But when her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear.

Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings.

It is a tale about our desperate attempts to save ourselves and those we love from heartbreak.
