Endorsements and Reviews

Dee Cole, CEO
This is a stunning read and a page-turner. Bolaji [describes] what tradition expects of a relationship vs. the reality of how things are. This will help both women and men break free and change their mentality in terms of what is ‘expected’, and also be able to make a head-start before getting into a serious relationship. Dee Cole CEO,
Dr Fikayo Manuwa, Medical Doctor
I have known Bolaji for almost two decades. From girls, we grew to women. I could relate to many of the stories as I was there, and to others because I’m also in a marriage. We were in relatively similar situations: we got pregnant, then then got married. This book is obviously from her heart, and Bolaji was guided by the Lord. Years of marriage and years of having a truly understanding partner who is willing to work with her all the way have given her the grace to write this. Anyone who is about to say, “I do!” should read this – and anyone who [is already married will find this will] help with their relationship. A truly worthy read. Dr Fikayo Manuwa Medical doctor

Her lessons are apt and so relevant to anyone who wants to improve their relationship. It is written in such a way to make you reflect about things you want to change or maintain.
