MFA SUNDAYSCHOOL / ASSIGNMENT ONE

This is our first assignment on mfa sunday school. Though i signed up a bit late, I still wanted to be a part of it.


Letter to my writerly self.
                
I always wanted to be a writer and I’m glad I’m one. When I was a kid, I read a lot of novels and I wanted to be like the authors of those novels. Once in school, we were asked to write a composition. I wrote a story had read in the library weeks before that time. It was a fascinating story, can’t really remember what I wrote now. After we turned in our work, my teacher called me and asked if I was the one that wrote story. When I said “yes”, she was stunned. She congratulated me and I swelled with pride. Thant incident has since been etched on my mind and it made me really want to be a writer. Cos I felt since I could impress my teacher then I could impress anyone else. I love to write. I love been able to express my thoughts on paper.
I see myself writing children’s books in the near future, I also want to start blogging. Have a desire to inspire women in my nation through my blog posts. This is really a huge project for me. I would also go back to writing poetry.
I want my writings to be inspirational. I want to speak to people’s heart. Blogging is what grips my heart now. I’m so fascinated by it. I want to encourage family life through my blogs. I want their hearts to be drawn back home. I believe I can greatly affect my nation through my blog.

Those who have abondoned themselves to God always lead mysterious lives and receive from him exceptional and miraculous gifts by means of the most ordinary natural and chance experiences in which there appears to be nothing unusual. The simplest sermon, the most banal conversations, the least erudite books become a source of knowledge and wisdom to these souls by virtue of God's purpose. This is why they carefully pick up  the crumbs which clever minds tread under foot, for to them everything is precious and a source of enrichment.
