I don't take myself too seriously
I don’t take myself too seriously

I’m a Christ-follower, daughter to two, sister to three, sister-in-law to two, aunt to four and wife and mother to none (yet). I really am called Nelima, though outside my immediate family I am known by my English name.

I am Kenyan and lived for a long time in and near Rome, Italy. I’m now back in Nairobi, though. I love chicken and chocolate (not necessarily in the same dish) and have memorised the words to ‘Nessun Dorma’. If you think I’ve said too little about myself, well, then you can read about my Myers-Briggs personality type.

You could also try a random post.

…the blog

I love writing and sharing what I know. Having neither the knowledge nor the life experience required to demand anyone’s attention, I rely on others for my material. In this stage of my life I’m listening to way too many Bible teachers (mostly found through The Gospel Coalition), and so that’s what ends up here.

It is my hope that my ruminations can be of use to any and all who would have the (mis)fortune of dropping by.

  1. Hey Nelima,
    I set up a wordpress site and was wondering who else on wordpress was signed in as Nelima. So I looked for you and here you are :-). Like your site by the way. I’m 100% Kenyan too, but living in the US.
    Just wanted to say hi!

  2. I am greatly encouraged by your blog. In my (limited) experience, there are not too many fellow Kenyans that are familiar with Packer, Keller, Driscoll, Piper and the like. A good friend of mine has been to Rome a couple of times and has had a hard time finding a good church to attend while there, so your testimony is even more unlikely! As you pray for the spread of the gospel in Kenya, do consider adding this church plant to your prayer list: http://kenyakoinonia.blogspot.com

    1. Will do that Chris… I’ll be needing a church when I return home 🙂 Seriously, may the Lord continue to guide you and give you wisdom as you make His name known!

    1. Thanks Jeremy!
      I recently discovered Christopher Wright and your post was really helpful. Hope to read more of your blog too!

  3. Thanks so much for your posts! I am finding them quite helpful. Your notes on How to Read the Bible for all it is worth is very helpful as I review the book and am using much in it to teach through Philippians

  4. Hello Nelima
    Thanks for your post today about “Individualitis” especially since I am a physician and because I have suffered from this condition and often still get flare-ups! The Lord has amazing grace like a tsunami for many of us who surrender to Him!
    I am Canadian Christian Sister living and working at a hospital in Al Ain, UAE, Recently the small fellowship church that was planted here took on the Gospel Coalition statement of faith as a guidance for the future. I too have learned alot from the teachers from that group and thank the Lord for them.

    Keep writing and passing on the Lord’s treasures you uncover.


    1. Dear Shirley,
      First, I’m really sorry for not replying sooner—I have sadly neglected this blog (life happens).
      I am very glad to hear that the Lord has been good to you, even in the Middle East! Thank you so much for the encouraging words and may the Holy Spirit carry on to completion the work began in you!
      Your sister in Christ,
