We are a young couple who have decided to share lessons about our journey through life: from childhood lessons to everyday experiences with family life, personal development, career, academia, parenting, leadership and youth work. Our goal is to raise virtuous youth through mentoring and teaching.
For many years as individuals, we have been devoted to helping young people make the right choices in life, especially in the areas of relationships, academic and career choices, and the experiences we have had always come in handy when we speak with these young ones.
Our activities also include peer counselling, volunteering, speaking, writing, and helping Christians practically and correctly live out God’s word through discipleship. As part of our calling and desire to help those who turn to Christ walk faithfully with Him, we run a discipleship ministry called Mimesis Christou (you can click here to visit the Mimesis Christou blog).
We are also involved in missionary work with the Great Commission Army, and we are partners of other missionary activities in Ghana and beyond. We have been married for two and a half years and have a son called Nyamedea (The LORD’s, Is. 44:5).
