MeetMeUp in Lagos – Celebrate + Propel

Hello everyone!! It is time for another OWF meetup!  Not just another, but the final one for this year 2016.  The year has been awesome with our MeetMeUp events, which both held in Lagos.  We had great times of fellowship, upliftment, education, connection and freedom.  This final one promises nothing less.

This event is scheduled to hold on the 10th of December by 12 noon, at Planet One Hotel and Events, Maryland, Ikeja.  In Lagos, Nigeria.  We will fellowship, worship, be upgraded by the Word, pray, dance in celebration and give thanks to our Lord for a beautiful year, and we will talk. That’s right! Our SisterTalk will surely feature.

Our SisterTalk so far’s been amazing.  Many have found freedom and have been so enlightened and strengthened by the opportunity for some of the issues they want resolved to be addressed with godly solutions.  You honestly don’t want to miss this event’s.

So, we are gathering with our dancing shoes to celebrate for all the Lord has done for us so far this year, and the many more greatness that are set to happen in our lives before the curtains finally come down on the year.  We are also gathering to be propelled into a glorious 2017.  Hmm… 2017?  It’s the start of a new era.

The OWF MarketPlace will also feature at the event.  As before, we only have 10 spaces.  Let us know here if you want to exhibit your business at the MarketPlace.  And as always, the MarketPlace open’s at 10am.  Make plans to come early to patronise a sister.  There will surely be goodies to bag for the Christmas.

It’s the end of the year, so there should be some gifts for us.  Shouldn’t there?  Where’s Santa?

Don’t miss it!!

Good day to all my beautiful PSs (Precious Sisters).  I believe we are all doing great in the Lord.  I want to share my experience with One Woman Fulfilled with us today.

I would like to say thank you to PS (Precious Sister) Ehi, the One Woman Fulfilled Founder for a very good job she is doing.  I pray your oil will not run dry in Jesus name.

I was introduced into One Woman Fulfilled almost a year ago by a friend but I never participated in anything.  I read messages but never replied any.  One day, I was going through Facebook and saw a post by PS Ehi on the 30th of September this year.  It was about knowing God more.  I read the post and it inspired me, it was as if it was posted because of me at that time, because I was at a point in my life where I was even doubting my faith.  So I said to myself, ‘let me give it a try and found it was awesome!’

It was this same day she posted that October 1st (the first Saturday of every month actually) is a day we (the One Woman Fulfilled precious sisters) pray for each other.  I immediately clicked the “Like” button on the post before evening, indicating that I want to participate in the prayer.  I was given a partner, PS Abidemi Amubioya Ibok.  We connected on WhatsApp and prayed.

I’m not a stranger to the prayer of agreement.  I have participated in it with sisters in my church and some friends, but I was overwhelmed seeing people eager and agreeing to pray with you even when you don’t know them personally.

Beautiful sisters, I want to tell you today, you may not know the blessings attached when you intercede on behalf of others whether you know them or not, but God delights in it.

Lastly, I will say I am happy to be a member of OWF (One Woman Fulfilled).  Sisters, let’s invite others because there are so many things going on around us today and all we need is prayers to conquer them all.  Remember, let’s live in faith and we shall overcome in Jesus name (1 John 5:4).

God bless you all!

_________________________________________________________________

Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in or around the womb (uterus).

The growths are made up of muscle and fibrous tissue and vary in size.  Lots of women are unaware they have fibroids because they don’t have any symptoms.  Women who do have symptoms may experience:

  • heavy periods or painful periods
  • tummy pain
  • lower back pain
  • the need to urinate often
  • constipation
  • pain or discomfort during sex

In rare cases, complications caused by fibroids can affect pregnancy or cause infertility.  See your doctor if you have persistent symptoms of fibroids so they can investigate possible causes.

The exact cause of fibroids is unknown.  However, they’re linked to the hormone oestrogen.  Oestrogen is the female reproductive hormone produced by the ovaries.  Fibroids usually develop during a woman’s reproductive years when oestrogen levels are at the highest.  They often shrink when oestrogen levels are low, such as after the menopause.

WHO GETS FIBROIDS?

Fibroids are common with around 1 in 3 women developing them at some point in their life:

  • They most often occur in women aged 30 to 50 years old.
  • They are thought to develop more frequently in women of African and Caribbean origin.
  • It’s also thought that they occur more often in overweight or obese women because being overweight increases the level of oestrogen in the body.
  • Women who have had children have a lower risk of developing fibroids, and the risk decreases further the more children you have.

TREATMENT

Treatment for fibroids is not needed if they are not causing symptoms.  Over time, fibroids will often shrink and disappear without treatment, particularly after the menopause.  If you do have symptoms caused by fibroids, medication will usually be recommended first.  If these do not work, surgery or other less invasive procedures may be recommended.

I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.  Please type your comments or questions below, or for a more private enquiry, send an email to onewomanfulfilled@gmail.com

KEY FACTS

  • Depression is a common mental disorder.
  • Globally, an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression.
  • Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and is a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease.
  • More women are affected by depression than men.  At its worst, depression can lead to suicide.
  • There are effective treatments for depression.

Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up.  We may all go through days of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.  Lots of people think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition.  This is wrong!  Depression is a real illness with real symptoms.  It is not a sign of weakness or something one can “snap out of”   by “pulling yourself together.”

However, with the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.

Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.  They can be feelings of sadness or hopelessness, losing interest in the things you used to enjoy and feeling very tearful.  Many people with depression also have symptoms of anxiety.

One can also develop physical symptoms such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping badly, having no appetite or sex drive or complaining of various aches and pains.

One may simply feel persistently low in spirit.  While at its most, severe depression can make one feel suicidal and that life is no longer worth living.  A low mood may improve after a short time, rather than being a sign of depression.

WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR

It is important to seek help from your doctor if you think you may be depressed.  Many people wait a long time before seeking help for depression, but it’s best not to delay.  The sooner you see a doctor, the sooner you can be on the way to recovery.

Sometimes, there is a trigger for depression.  Life changing events, such as:

  • bereavement
  • losing your job
  • or even having a baby
  • you can also become depressed for no obvious reason

TREATMENT

Treatment for depression involves either medication or talking treatments, or usually a combination of the two.  The kind of treatment that your doctor recommends will be based on the type of depression you have.

You may benefit by making lifestyle changes such as:

  • getting more exercise
  • cutting down on alcohol
  • eating more healthily
  • joining a support group
