the beauty of virginity

Every mother who desires that her daughter or son lives a sexually pure life must take urgent measures about it today. Years ago, young boys and girls who were not married were trained to always look down on counterparts who have lost their virginity and are sexually active. The beauty and the dignity of virginity was highly extolled, appreciated, and rewarded, even on the wedding day. Now, the story has changed. Young adults who have lost theirs untimely and under the most unreasonable circumstances seem to be the most celebrated while those who hold on to theirs are fast becoming endangered species in our communities today. Virgins now are mocked, embarrassed, molested and looked down upon. They are constantly pressured by peers to join their counterparts who have lost theirs. The society is so much saturated with sex. It has placed so much emphasis on immorality and promiscuity so much so that it looks as though it is the right thing to do. It is so broadcasted everywhere that you cannot miss it. In essence, the youths and teenagers of today have become very sexually aggressive, and the earlier we reckon with this fact and take preventive measures to guard against the sexual challenges of the day, the better for us. Truly, virginity is meant to be lost, but the timing of the lost, coupled with the circumstances that surround it, and who it is being lost to, is as important as the act of the loss itself. This book in your hands may be your most important contribution in saving the destiny of just one more teenager/youth from the werewolf of sexual impurity that is destroying this generation.

handling academic failure

A wise man takes his time to learn both the secrets of failure and success. He learns the secrets of failure to avoid failing and that of success to succeed. The essence of this book is not to build a monument around your failure, but to teach you how to get the best from your failure so that your life can bounce back and move forward despite the failure. Failure is not very palatable; it has dire consequences. You may be asked to reseat the examination, repeat the class, bag a carry over, asked to withdraw from school, or graduate with very poor and unsatisfactory grades. This is why most students detest failure, but some still fail anyway. Therefore, every student needs to learn how to handle failure so as to get the best out of it. If you have ever failed before, the last time you failed is the last time you will ever fail again; the truth you will learn from this book will guarantee that. However, if you have never failed before, this book will guarantee that you maintain the record of a clean slate all your days as a student on campus. This is all you need to put academic failure in its right place, and keep achieving success all your days on campus. This book will teach you exactly that; how to handle academic failure so that you can cross over the boundary of failure to the side of success in any examination.

look beyond school

Starting college is a major transitional stage in one’s life, but leaving college is a greater one. The day of convocation, which marks the end of this stage of your life coincidentally marks the beginning of another. It launches you forth into the larger world outside there; a world in which you have to find your own footing for yourself, a world which accommodates the survival of only the fittest. Such a world should not be entered unprepared for. The convocation ceremony is a bridge between the artificial campus life and the real world. It is a link between the imaginary future students build for themselves while on campus, and the factual world outside there, where, irrespective of your desires, only what you deserve is all you get. You will soon be a graduate, and the whole world will rejoice with you for a job well done, whether you pass out, as it is commonly said, or you fail out, which nobody dares say! Everybody comes to rejoice with you, at least, for going through school successfully and not dropping out on the way. That makes you a graduate, and it is worth the celebration. For you personally, if you must be sincere with yourself, the convocation day is always a day filled with both excitement and nervous apprehension. The convocation ceremony will soon be over. The music will soon fade. The dance will soon stop. Your guests will soon leave. The hall will soon be locked. And you will soon be left alone to do just one thing - decide what your fate will be! Look Beyond School: You will soon be a Graduate.

living a 1st class life with a 3rd class degree

This book is not about history, theory or theology. It is about bringing life to your dead dream of becoming a first-class personality in life, although you have a third class degree. Unknown to you, while on campus, the main reason why you really desired to graduate with a first class was not just for your friends to respect you or for your family members to be happy for having a first class graduate in the family. Much more than these, hidden somewhere within your heart, is a secret aspiration to want to live a first class life in the future. That dream should not now be aborted simply because you did not make a first class in school. Armed with this understanding, you will agree that graduating with a first class in school is only a means to an end and not the end in itself. The end in itself is living a first class life. The good news is that there are so many means to this end, and this book reveals those means. Know this for sure; nothing catches God unawares. Whatever happens, He knows about it. Sad as it may sound, God knew afore-hand that you may not fare better than you did, and He is prepared ahead of time to help you. He is not disappointed in you. God looks at things differently than man does. This is because man is easily impressed by the wrong things in life, neglecting the things that matters. Men may write you off, but God won’t: It is not in His nature: Adam and eve failed God’s exam in the Garden of Eden and could have easily been written off by God. However, the whole Bible is a record of God’s plan and effort to reverse that failure; that is God. He looks beyond the present into the future. Succeeding in school is not the same as succeeding in life; likewise, failing out of school does not necessarily mean you have failed in life. A pass mark in the first does not guarantee a pass mark in the other, and a failure in the first does not guarantee a failure in the other. You may be passing out with a third-class result now, but this does not make you a third-class material. Every student is a first-class material, only that the field in which they excel differ. Those who excel in academic work are easily noticed and awarded first-class earlier than others. But this is not to say others cannot excel in other fields.

powerful prayer points

Words are not cheap. Words can kill. Words can heal. Words can start wars and end wars. Words can make a man smile and they can make him weep. Words can create and can destroy. Words are powerful, especially when used rightly in prayers. Jesus said words could move mountains if rightly used. The Bible teaches that life and death are in your words. So your words matter a lot. Your confession matters. God wants you to speak the right set of words so that He can change your life. "But if you have anything to say, go ahead. I want to hear it, for I am anxious to see you justified. (Job 33:32) The devil is also carefully waiting to catch the wrong set of words in your mouth so that he can put you in bondage. "You are snared by the words of your lips, you are caught by the speech of your out" (Prov. 6:2) So you determine on whose side you fall by the kinds of words you speak. This is why you need to always confess positive things into your life with your own mouth when praying. This book is a collection of powerful words and prayer points with scriptural references that can change situation if confessed often. It will show you the power of prayers. It is a must for every student who desires a change in his present situation, academic or otherwise.

With this book in your hand, you are in a perfect moment for a radical change and total restoration in both your academics and your spiritual life. It will definitely teach you 'How To Strike A Balance Between Your Academics And Your Spiritual Life And Still Excel In Both With Ease'. Note: Beware! Do not read this book unless you are ready for a change, because it will definitely cause you to change.

boost your grade point (gp)

The earth is governed by rules called natural laws. These rules work irrespective of location, race, religion and colour. As there are natural laws that govern the earth generally, so also there are natural laws that govern academics too, which most times are either not known to students, or known but not taken too serious. This is the core of students’ problem with G.P. It is either because of something they need to do which they consciously or unconsciously are not doing, or something they need not do which they constantly find themselves doing. This is the essence of this book, to teach both of these, and to keep your G. P. ever soaring.


There are things you need to put in place to make sure you graduate from this campus in one piece, and with a very good degree. This is what you have in this book - essential materials that you need to make the best use of this golden opportunity before you. It is recommended for every Year One student in any of the nation’s higher institution

challenges of a preacher's kid

Are you a P.K, or the parent of one? It's nice to have you share my experiences about the challenges of P.Ks and how to overcome them. The Preacher's Kid (P.K as it is generally called) is a term usually used to describe either the son or the daughter of a minister of the gospel, irrespective of his or her age. Even when some of them are already adults, they are still referred to as kids, and you will soon know why! Parents, who are deeply involved in the work of the ministry either as pastors, preachers, evangelists, deacons, elders, vicars, priests or bishops, always have their offsprings automatically referred to as Preacher's Kids. Whether the children like the identity or not does not make any difference, at least to those who prefer to call them as such. As long as your parents have something to do with the office of the clergy, you cannot escape either the designation or the challenges of a PREACHER'S KID. The essence of this book is obvious from its title. The Pastor's family today is the major battle ground of the archenemy of God, and the main target of that battle, just like the King on a Chess Board game, is the Preacher's Kid. Once we allow the devil to capture them, the game may be over for the family.

secrets of successful students

Have you ever wondered why, after apparently satisfactory preparation for and performance in an examination, you still come out with poor or low grades? Do you find it difficult to settle down for serious study? Do you easily forget what you read? Do you belong to either the group of students who have a problem with when, where and how to read for utmost understanding or the other group that is confused about what to do during lecture periods in order to enhance concentration and aid memory? Do you find it hard to cope with the atmosphere of the examination hall? Do you find it difficult even to account for your incessant failure? Then you need not go far. You are holding in your hand the answer to every troubling question you have ever asked about your academics.

spread your faith

This is not just another book on Evangelism. This book is written to stir you up to evangelize. It will set your hearts on fire for the Great Commission, especially in this time that personal evangelism is no longer emphasized in our churches. The book presents the message of the Gospel in a simple and unique way. Most hindrances and excuses to evangelism are dealt with and solutions given. This will equip the saints and will make them better prepared for this great task. I recommend this book to every Christian. As you read it, let it challenge you and awake your heart for the final harvest.

the nude lady and the free gift

As she watched him savor each bite of the fruit, she felt tempted to take a bite, but the words of Adams Strong kept coming back to her, “We shall not go near it, nor touch it”. What is the big deal there? She thought. I have already gone near and I have touched it. Nothing bad as happened. Crafty Curl had eaten it, and he said it was good. I can as well have a taste.

a letter to all secondary school graduates

This book is a collection of what higher institution undergraduates wished someone had told them when they were graduating from secondary schools. You are indeed fortunate to come across this. If I had this in my days, I probably would have done a lot better in the higher institution. Read it and pass it on to others. It will guarantee every reader a more successful stay in the higher institution.

lights of the world

There are different types of light in the world today. Each of them may be made to illustrate the characteristics of some group of believers in the world. All these forms of light havE their great characteristics. However, in spite of these good potentials, each of them Also have some defects. In this book, “Lights Of The World; 7 Types Of Christians On Earth”, we will be considering these different sources of lights, their relevance to our Christian life, the differences between them and other lights, the flaws and strengths of each of them and how every believer can improve on whatever kinds of light he is beaming, so as to meet up with the standard God expects.

causes of academic failure in higher institutions

CAUSES OF FAILURE Failure is real. Nobody likes or desires it, but most people earn it. It is a bitter pill to swallow. A student who has not successfully passed all his subjects/courses with the needed requirements may be asked to repeat the class, given an extra session, bag a carry over, asked to withdraw from school or graduate with low/poor grades. Every student dreads failure because of these outcomes. This book is on how to pass exams without tears, but it would not be worthwhile learning how to study for exams without first identifying what failure is, its causes and how to avoid it. A football player who is very good at dribbling goalkeepers and scoring goals but does not know when he is offside or what foul or free kick means, will end up achieving nothing. In the first section of this book, some possible causes of failure, which are very common among students, will be discussed and suggestions given on how to avoid them. Do not be afraid to admit any truth found in the next few pages of this book. Do not shy away from them or pretend they do not affect your studies. Do not begin to think of people whom you know engage in them, condemning them and justifying yourself. The human mind likes to shift blame on others; but this will not help you. Sit down and see how it affects you, then take necessary steps to make amendments. It is not enough identifying the causes of failure, but finding lasting solutions to them is more important. The causes of failure are discussed in this part.

basic learning techniques

This book deals with some important techniques that make learning interesting, enjoyable and profitable. If you have been finding your study sessions dull and boring, application of one or two of these techniques will resuscitate your study period. It will put more life into it and make you desire to continue studying anytime you sit down in your study room to study.

getting the best of your personal study time

Learning effectively neither ends in lecture rooms nor is it a few minutes review after the lecture. It includes earmarking time out at home for personal study where nobody will be around to disturb you. * What does a personal study room look like? * What are the things found in such room? * When is the best time to study each subject? * How long should one spend on a subject? * And how should studies be done to enhance assimilation and better understanding? Answers to these questions and many more are provided in this part of the book.

cultivating the right class attitude

This section explains in details what is expected of any student before entering into the classroom, laboratory or lecture theater to receive lectures. It also advises on: * What to do if the lecturer does not turn up on time, * What to do during lectures to enhance concentration and increase assimilation, * What to do after the lecture and * How to take down notes from verbally communicated lectures

handling examinations

So far, we have learnt a few practical things on the causes of academic failure, the nature of personal studies and of lecture room attitudes as well as the utilization of some learning techniques. These should be enough to make one sail through any ocean of examinations, since they deal basically with how best to read in order to understand better. However, this book will be incomplete without the addition of this last topic on EXAMINATIONS. One or two more points discussed here will put you in the best position to demolish any mountain of examination before you. Every game has its own rules, examinations inclusive. Whenever you adhere to the rules, you are sure of getting the right results. If not, you miss them. Our concern in this part is with the rules guiding examinations, the transaction in the examination halls, preparations for them and how best to achieve the desired laurels.

engaging in productive personal study sessions

Passing your examinations, thereby boosting your G.P. is not simply a combined issue of attending lectures and concentrating in class alone. If it is, no student will ever fail.

how class attendance can affect your academic result

Having the right attitude to your lectures is the first step to building a good foundation for your Grade Points (GP) in school, and also the major step to boosting your Grade Points.

time management for students

Developing a good time management skill may be a journey that may begin with the things you have read in this book, but you will need constant practice and other guidance along the way. So, start today.

active concentration in class for better results

It is good enough to attend all the lectures required of you in a semester, but passing your exams go beyond just answering ‘present sir’ to the attendance register after each lecture. You have to do much more than just sitting idly in the class. You have to be present wholly; spirit, soul and body.

involving the supernatural in your academic pursuit

The last habit of highly effective students is that they always involve the supernatural in their academics. They do not go the distance alone; they make it a cooperative effort between God and them. This may be the last but it is in no way the least.

effective students network

The higher institution experience may largely be about academics, but networking with other brilliant students is one of the most important virtues a student can engage in to ensure great success in his academics. Networking with better brains on campus can be defined as the concept of building a mutual relationship with selected students in your class or department who are a lot better off than you are academically, for the sole purpose of helping and encouraging one another to have a better academic standing today, and a great future tomorrow.

how to live a balanced life as a student

In order to boost your G.P, you need to live a very balanced life on campus. There are these three areas of your life that on the surface may look as though has nothing to do with your academic performance but actually has a lot to do with boosting your G.P. if well examined.
