Her empowering messages and insights have helped me navigate life's challenges with a renewed sense of purpose and self-worth. The community she's built is incredibly supportive, and it's inspiring to see women from all walks of life coming together to evolve and uplift one another. Looking forward to more growth and wisdom from Sarah!

on Kendrick Lamar ... if the lyrics include the N word it's fair game no matter your culture. Don't want it repeated then don't include it in lyrics. She should have been rescued; the concert goer said nothing wrong.

Hello, I just want to make a suggestion or correction. That video about a funeral with the deceased sister and wife wasn't from Nigeria. It was from South Africa.

I needed to hear this. One part that stuck out to me is when your mom mentioned questioning God about why this is happening to her when she followed the rules of marrying first etc. and God was like, your sins have already been forgiven. Trials, conflict are apart of life. Even Jesus faced trials. Another part that touched me deep was when you mentioned alcoholics having mental issues. My brother is an alcoholic and instead of seeing his hardship I labeled him as not appreciating life and other non empathetic labels. I will now see him with new eyes. Thank you!
