Tolu on his religion

Jesus is the reason I have the writing ability. The gift of writing which I have had since I was a teenager is all down to him. Some folks need to read or do an activity to get inspiration to write, however all my verses and motivational stories to get people through life have all come from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

The wisdom to write a book for the discerning can only come from Jesus as he is the great teacher and counsellor. Dead Lions Don’t Roar has truly been a book filled with wisdom and the feedback I have received from all fronts shows that when Jesus has a hand it, then the story becomes beautiful.

In all of my life and through my growing up years, Jesus has been at the center of it all, hence my decision to dedicate Dead Lions Don’t Roar to God Almighty the Giver of talents to man. Thanks to Jesus for the grace to harness my talents and  for the help for me to put it to productive use. Through my books and writings, I hope to contribute my quota to make the World a better place – to help people find their inner talent and live the life intended for them.
