Yoruba Word Of The Week : Ìyàwó

 Ìyàwó is the Yoruba word for wife/bride.

Whether you are a Ìyàwó or one to be, let us glorify God for our title.

Let us strive to be the best Ìyàwó we can be, even in the smallest things.

Let us strive to be like the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31.

Let us strive to be like the Ìyàwó God wants us to be.

The noun is : Ìyàwó and a simple sentence : Mo ti di Ìyàwó" (I have become a wife/bride).

May our homes be blessed!
May we be fruitful!
May our unions be full of love!
