I had always looked forward to having a courtship that is fun, lovingly enthralling and yet godly!

A courtship with a spark of godliness!

A Christian courtship!

A courtship with Christ at the center.

And yes! My courtship was one of the best seasons in my entire life.

It was a time of love and fun, joy and prayer, knowing and planning, blushing and hoping that the day would come quickly.

I wanted to know more about Christian courtship so I went online to search for books. Alas, there were limited or no books!

People who have written about courtship are so few, talk less of people that have written about CHRISTIAN Courtship!

I then hoped that at church, at the marriage counseling, we would be given some very meaty books that would guide us. Well, we were only given a sheet of paper that contained some topics to guide our discussions. Ugh! I was kinda disappointed as that was my last hope.

I couldn’t find a guide to completely trust- that which upholds my desire to have a courtship that is fun yet, radiating godliness. We followed the ‘sheet’ the church gave us, adding some meat to make ours kinda weightier.

After my wedding, I got a number of mails from some people asking me to recommend books for them on courtship. All my efforts to get good books that I could recommend proved abortive.

A while after the barrage of requests, I got the confirmation from the Holy Spirit that it was time to write courageously on the topic that has been scarcely written about.

And you know what?

I came up with five different volumes and a workbook! Haha

Singles, hoping to get married in the future, I adjure you to get these books in twos and keep for that future, blessed choice of the Lord!

Engaged ladies and guys, get these books in twos- for you and your ‘sweet love’. You will be forever glad you did.

Church leaders, this is the best gift for those couples-to-be who have come to you for counseling. They will forever be grateful to you.

Parents, are you planning to send your boy or girl off, sooner or later, buy these books because they are evergreen! Those children will bless you for them and also pass them to their children’s children!

The five volumes are:


This will cover a variety of topics. Some of them are:

  • Types of courtship
  • What is Christian courtship.
  • Spicing up your Christian courtship.
  • How to know you are in courtship.

    Your theme/topic is of utmost importance to Christians in courtship. I wish there was more guidance nice and literature like hours available for the sake of young ( and mature) Christians embarking in this beautiful journey of partnership in Christ.

    May I humbly share my poem here and pray it might be if some use to some seeking soul:

    In Love Don’t Fall

    Ask God to keep you upright
    To fall is a mishap and bruising
    Stand firm in love and do the deeds
    Love is not lame nor fickle
    It does not like honey trickle

    It’s to the hilt a tenderness
    Reverently an offering
    to share ourself with another
    With great respect and care
    for them we claim to love

    After attentively learning
    how they want to be loved
    To discover it would please us
    to serve them as desired
    is half the equation solved
    What’s left is to open ourselves
    To let them learn how we in turn
    want to be loved
    And find out if it would please them
    to serve us as we need

    Then we shall know if it is love
    Or sly old games and lust
    which usher in the fall of things
    for those fallen in love
