I prayed, and God changed my name

What is the essence of a name and why do we give names to our children, pets, or things? Well I’m sure most of us, the reasons why we give names to children, pets, and things is so we can identify those things easily.

The virtuous Woman / Proverb 31 woman

defining Womanhood Womanhood literally means, matured or the state of being a woman.
