LIFESTYLE: WOMEN AS DRIVERS TO THE BUILDING OF HARMONIOUS HOME AND SOCIETY.

It is a saying "it is a man's world," but a closer look reveals that women indirectly call the shots. There is no gainsaying a woman can make a man's life heaven or a living hell. Therefore the role of women in building harmonious home and society is immeasurable.


             "The king may rule the kingdom,   but its the queen who moves the board."

                     -D.M. Timney


A woman cannot give what she does not have. To achieve lasting peace and harmony, a woman must have order inside of her. A virtuous woman puts her complete trust in God to help her and her family wade through the storms of life. Knowing God is the originator of the institution called marriage. She does not hesitate to consult the manufacturer (God) and continuously refer to the user manual (the bible).


The contemporary society places a lot of responsibilities on the woman but to get to her destination of building a harmonious home, she must set her priorities right. Career and family are all outstanding, but the family should always come first. Hence the need to strike a balance by being good wives, mothers, and career women.


The best investment is investing in people. God has placed children under our care; it is pertinent we raise godly and responsible children. When families get it right, the society becomes right. To achieve harmony in our homes, we must invest our time, money and care in the lives of our children and raise men and women of pedigree who stand for justice and truth, who are courageous and undaunting in the face of challenges.


In God's original plan, the woman was created to complement the man. So as drivers of harmony in the home, providing maximum support as a team player should be paramount to achieve successful marriage.


To sum it up, there is no love without commitment, no relationship without sacrifice. As women of excellence and virtue, we will square up to our responsibilities and continue to uphold peace and harmony in our homes,  so help us, God.
