There is a popular saying that behind every successful man there is a woman.
Do you believe it? How true is this?
Yes I believe it and it is true. There is a burst of energy and
confidence that comes to a man when his woman is standing behind him.
Most successful men today stand because a supportive woman is standing
Then the LordGod said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will
make a helper who is just right for him (Gen 1:18).
Something was lacking in Adam's life and the only person that could
solve it was Eve. Eve was to be Adam's strength, a role only she can
It then goes out to all the women in the world that the world needs
them to be themselves, a woman.
This is very clear in the life of my mentor Dr Ben Carson. A renowned
America Neurosurgeon, Dr Ben has been a mentor to many people across
the world. But do you know that Ben's life will be incomplete without
two women in his life, His mother Sonya and his wife Candy. With this
family in view I want to encourage every woman out there to be that
supportive woman in her family.
Ben's mum Sonya defied all odds to make sure that her two sons Ben and
Curtis went to school even though she was a poor single mum and
uneducated. A kid who once believed he is a dullard (in my dialect we
call such people itiboribo) overcame that with the help of his mum and
went on to be the best (and thats exactly what we do in Genius Palace,
helping you be the best you were meant to be). From Dullard to genius,
all thanks to a supportive mum. Are you a mum or a potential mum never
you write off any of your child. Now Ben is a Doctor and Curtis an
Ben met his wife Candy when they were in med school. Candy on her own
has a degree in Psychology/Music also she is a masters degree holder
in Business Administration. Candy together with her husband Ben
founded the Carson Scholars Fund to help smart students.
In her book (A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE: My life with Ben Carson)she recalls
Being the wife of a renowned neurosurgeon is not easy: she used to
bring him dinner at 2 a.m. during his residency, moved to Australia
while five months pregnant so Ben could start another job, and jokes
that she often has to say things three times to make sure he's
listening. Candy recounts being alone so much that the Church she
attended wondered if she was making her husband up (and the pastor
actually went to check that Dr. Carson existed to make sure she wasn't
unstable.) During his campaign for America's Presidency, Candy was
And Dr Ben never ceases to tell the whole world how wonderful his wife
is. And why wouldn't he, Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price
is far above rubies (Prov 31:10). He has found one and should be
grateful. They have 3 children togther, all boys.
Candy together with her mother-in-law Sonya has provided my mentor Dr
Ben Carson a platform for successs. Such is the power of women.
But do you know that There is a movement of women who think that men
are their enemies or are out to trample on them. Some of these women
term themselves feminist (which is negative feminism anyway) and they
find it hard to marry because they can't be under a man. And even if
they eventually marry divorce follows immediatly because they can
never be second in command. Some highly placed women find humility
hard to acquire.
Are you a woman that wishes to be the best don't follow such negative
trend. Know you that you are not moving into marriage to fight it out
with your husband rather your moving into it to live “happily forever
after” and to train the children God will bless you with. Humility is
not timidity or slavery, it is happiness.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies (Prov 31:10).
