U·wa·na, pronounced (oo-wa-na) derives from the Swahili language meaning “sonship.” Before delving into sonship, here are a few confessions:
- These things I am: Jesus’ #1 fan; an insanely proud mama/wife/daughter/sister; writer; lover of science; and proponent of all things African.
- These things I hate: Ignorance, injustice, poverty, oppression, mediocrity … anything and everything that robs a person of their potential, their self-worth, and their purpose.
- These things I pursue: As a passionate advocate of growth and development, I’m journeying towards becoming the person of value that God wants me to be, and to help others see themselves as Jesus sees them: valued, loved, and uncommon.
What about sonship? Sonship can be defined as the character, rights, duties, position, or privileges of a son; the state of being a son, or of bearing the relation of a son. This blog presents a God-inspired perspective on the characteristics and tools needed to grow and mature from children of God into sons of God. Sons are God’s hands and feet in this world; they understand His thoughts and embrace the responsibility of carrying out His will on earth. Sons have aggressive ambitions for growth and development; they desire to help people discover and pursue their God-given potential.
Sonship is about transforming your seed of purpose into a vehicle for national empowerment and transformation … and it all begins with you!
So come along, join me on this exciting journey!
Grace and peace be multiplied to you as you grow into your sonship,
