Bisola and Ben... Lovers' corner
Lovers' Corner: How did you meet  her?

 Bisola was one of my foundation school students in church.
 was also a good academic tutor and she happened to 
 one of the beneficiaries of my teaching grace.
I noticed her, we became friends, then partners in

Lovers' Corner:What attracted you to her?

    She was always punctual and very diligent as my student.
never took her academics lightly.
Her speech was impeccable and she was very hospitable
I also want to say that her beauty is second to none.

Ben and Bisola....Lovers' corner
Lovers' Corner:
Why did you 
eventually choose 
her among other ‘better qualified’  friends?

Apart from being a medical professional, I knew I was called into the ministry. I believe this is the most important and discovering she is a ministry gift was a great blessing.
She’s still a blessing to me. Her virtue, meekness, diligence, beauty and simplicity reinforced my conviction about her

 Lovers' Corner: Can you share with us what it means to love and be loved by someone?

We can’t talk about love without talking about God. God is love.
To know what it takes to love, look at the way God love us. He gave us His best while we were still sinners. That’s what love is all about. To love is to carry out your responsibilities as enshrined in the marriage contract irrespective of what your partner does or feels.
More than a feeling, love is an action. There is no genuine love without expression.
The same way faith grows by speaking, love also grows by speaking/declaration/expression.
Couples (including intending couples) should cultivate the habit of exchanging declarations such as: I love you, you are the best, you mean so much to me, e.t.c

Lovers' Corner: Have you ever had disagreements, if yes how did you resolve it?

 Let me start by saying there’s no relationship without challenges but what we do to address the situation is what makes the difference.
Immediately we started our relationship, we agreed to always resolve every issue before the end of the day. We don’t sleep with grudges. We take God’s word as the final authority as well as the standard in resolving every conflict/challenge. We are also submitted to a mentor for settling any challenge we can’t resolve between ourselves. Thank God there has never been any of such.

Lovers' Corner: Many singles today are worried about how to prepare for a wedding and marriage. How did you prepare for your  wedding and what practical things did you do to ensure its success?

Marriage is a God’s idea not man’s. If it’s God’s idea, then I don’t have to worry about how to execute it. I only need to depend on Him to guide me to have a glorious home.

While marriage is for a lifetime, wedding is for a day. Start with prayer and the word. Get a workable budget, prioritize and depend on the Spirit to guide you as you prepare.

I will also say it’s a must for the man to have a stable job as well as a place of abode before getting married. Other things can follow; take a step at a time.

Lovers' Corner:    What would your family be known for, your vision and mission?

 It’s our desire to have a godly home where the LOVE of God can literally be felt in the atmosphere. We are doers of God’s word, we walk in love and we believe all things are possible as we go on our knees.

Lovers' Corner:  How do you plan balancing family with work since work is going to be a major part of your life?

11. Both aspects (family and work) are important. Man is created to handle multiple tasks at the same time. I believe the grace of God is sufficient for every child of God to strike a balance either as a husband or wife. Wisdom is also required to prioritize things to do per time.

Lovers' Corner: What is your favorite scripture?

 Phil. 4:6 Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your requests known unto God.

Lovers' Corner: How do you plan bringing up your children in the way of the Lord?

We want them trained by the principles of the word of God. We intend to expose them early to God’s word and monitor their growth in the spirit.

Lovers' Corner: Finally, what is your advice for singles who admire you and would one day get married?

 My advice is for them to maximize this moment, they should devote their time to walk with the Lord and serve Him. They should involve God when it comes to choosing a life partner. Don’t be carried away by ephemeral things; rather, allow the Spirit of God to assist you in locating eternal values and treasures in people that matter. We have this treasure in earthen vessel that the excellency of power may be of God and not of us (2Cor.4:7)

A godly home worth more than money, gold or anything that may be compared with it.
