You can not go through life alone. You need others to help guide and support you. A good idea without guided instructions will end up in failure. As I mature, I am contemplating different things for my future such as joining a church, buying a house, and getting married. Through the leadership that I have in my life, I am learning that things are not as easy as they seem. So as I prepare myself, I also wanted to share some things with others who may be looking forward to certain life changes as well.

Joining A Church:

What do they believe in?
How well do you know the Pastor and the individuals in leadership?
Does the congregation treat you like family?
Can you go to them with your personal problems?

Buying A House:

Do you have an emergency fund? At least 6-12 months saved up.
Is the home in a flood zone?
What are the schools like around the neighborhoods?
Have you checked under the house to make sure it is not rotten? As well as the attic?

Getting Married:

Is your prospective spouse currently married?
What does their credit look like?
Have you checked their criminal background?
Have you both been tested for stds?

It is always good to let others know what you are thinking about. You can get another perspective and discover things that you never thought about. The key to success is following good leadership. If you follow bad leadership you may have been better off by yourself. Talk to someone who has already been where you are trying to go. Always trust and keep faith in God. Nothing is too hard or too difficult if you have God on your side. It may seem tough at times but you will get through it.

Feel free to check out another post on leadership.


  1. Praise the Lord, Naomi I always like your writings and of course when you acknowledge the things that you are learning or atleast are becoming aware of, it makes me that much more proud to be your father. May God continue to bless you.


  2. Naomi, your insight is excellent, however donot forget about the peace of God in your decisions. Additionally, when selecting a mate or companion make sure they love the Lord and I guarantee they will love you. Mom

  3. Thanks Mom...."If you don't have peace about it, don't do it"


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and to provide your insight. Peace and Blessings!
