I am sitting at the airport waiting to board (last time i was at an airport, i was so sick and even threw up. Today i am in perfect health, hallelujah!!!) and then I am thinking ‘who do I publish today?’ Then Frances drops in my spirit…
She has sent me at least 7 posts. She keeps editing and editing. When I read the last one she sent, I knew this was IT.
Ah Frances feels like my blog sister. She just reps Christ wella.
Amazing girl. I hope to run into you on the streets of Lagos as opposed to a deliberate planned meeting.
Looool. Either way, it would be an honor to finally meet you.
FAB’ers, please welcome to the FAB lane of testifiers, the blogger and Lawyer in the works, Frances ‘imperfectly petfect ‘Okoro….

*This is very important. As a blogger especially if you blog on a regular, blog affairs may wanna fight for quiet time (it doesn’t count that your blog is a Christian one oooo). So one has to be careful to fellowship exclusively with God without BBM and blog notifications interrupting. So babe I am so with you on this one*

***I had the privilege of doing same as a Corper. Amazing I tell you. Priceless. And the khaki gives you an advantage so it won’t be hard at all. Since schools are writing exams by the time batch C corpers come on board, this may have to wait till January but still start your underground work before. You can holler at me for pointers…*
