Let Their Voices Be Heard- My Interview with Temi of Christian Mommas Final Part

I am so thankful that my sweet daughter in Jesus, Temi, has done this series with me. It has given me a chance to know her and how wonderful she is. Her story is truly inspiring going from being an orphan raised by her grandfather in Nigeria to now being a young mother, a college graduate, and now working on her Phd. She has done all of that through Jesus helping her each step along the way. Her blog is christianmommas.com.

In Part 1 Temi shared about experiencing racism. In Part 2 she shared about her struggles as an international student. In Part 3 she shared about what inspired her to write her book A Christian Mother’s Creed. In Part 4 she shared about Intergenerational Transfer of Trauma as it relates to racism.

Today she shares about her educational and professional goals. I asked her to do this because it shows how remarkable she is and shows how Jesus can take an orphan girl and lead her to overcome so much adversity with his help.

Please share about your education. What do you envision doing in the future?

My grandfather was very passionate about education. I believe he passed this on to me. While my late biological parents never attended college, I will earn a doctoral degree in a few years.  

After being stuck in the community college as an international student for almost five years due to lack of funds, God changed my story. I went on to complete two masters degrees within 18 months and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health and Developmental Disorders without worrying about finances. Due to my military service, all is being paid for by the U.S. government. My academic journey reminds me of Isaiah 61:7 ~ For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

Pursuing a PhD in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health and Developmental Disorders has helped me become a better mother. While parenting was natural for my spouse, God directed me to a PhD program that would help me in my parenting journey. Even more beautiful is the fact that my doctoral studies equips me with the knowledge and skills needed to support families as a Perinatal, Infant, and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant.

Having founded Christian Mommas and Little Ones PIECMH Consulting, I envision the global impact of these ministries as I continue to seek God’s divine direction. Yes, my business or company is also a ministry. My goal is to share or reveal God’s love while providing physical, emotional and spiritual support to families from conception to the early years of parenthood. I see children having a better future and  parent-child relationships being strengthened through these ministries.

Thank you papa Matt for the wonderful opportunity to share my story and passion on your blog. I am grateful.  Thank you all for following this blog series. I hope that you have been inspired to trust God with your life and dream big.

  1. Hey Matt I’m using the part 1 2 3 and 4 links to catch up on these but when I click part 4 it’s the same link as part 3 just in case you want to fix it😉

  2. Wow what an amazing story she has, I had no clue the background there.
    Great example of an adversity overcomer through Christ!!!❤️
    Love that you put this together Matt!! And it doesn’t surprise me given your love for others!

  4. Reblogged this on Christian Mommas and commented:
    Please read my final blog series with papa Matt. It was a blessing and privilege to share my story, passion, and God’s goodness! The series with papa Matt and my interaction with fellow Christians in the blogging community reminds me that we are one body in Christ. In God, we are one family.

  5. Temi’s story is amazing. 💚Her love for Christ, combined with her gifts and sacrifices, are serving us all through her incredible witness for Christ. Wow! 💚🙏🏻

  6. This is an amazing story of dedication. Thank you Matt for sharing Temi’s story to us. She is an amazing young woman and a great example to the youths.

  7. This final part crowned it up. And it’s so encouraging the “dream big” literarily made me tear. Sometimes it seems God is slow on us but when He shows up He makes up for those seemingly slow times. God is good!. 🙌

    Thanks for sharing your story sis. 😊 And for sharing it on your blog big bro. 🤗
