In a thread, the singer’s mother shared how her church, Daystar Christian Centre, influenced her life positively.
Read excerpts from what she wrote below:
I was d only person who wasn’t a graduate among my siblings. When I got to @DaystarNG , I learnt that there is no barrier to your dreams. I went back to LASU to read Mass Comm when I was almost 50 & finished well even while my daughter was in CU reading MC at the same period.
Don’t allow your age to stop u. Don’t allow negative advisers stop you. Don’t allow the word ‘it is not possible’ stop you. You are the only one who can stop you. If u want to go back to school, revive that dream, take that form, apply & resume. Age is no barrier
As a young lady I didn’t feel loved by my parents. I was searching 4 love in all d wrong places until I gave my life 2 Christ in
@DaystarNG . D searching ended because I found d greatest love in Christ Jesus. He took away my pain & gave me joy & peace. The word works wonders
I was single for years and years but desired to be married so I could be a blessing to my husband. It looked impossible as the years kept rolling by but the word was too powerful not to be potent. I became married at 62 & God has been faithful. Hold on to your heart desire.
