About the Author

Being the second and last child of his parent, J.N. Cisse had a firsthand experience of the stringent challenges associated with child upbringing in a single-parent home. He recalls his own experiences and cannot but lift his heart in thanksgiving to God Almighty, whose hand of providence was not absent in his growing up, despite the rocky journey, and has brought him to a place of stability, love, and strength.

Being a father of two, he has come to see the inherent beauty and profound wisdom the Creator had by building the basic unit of society, the family, on two pillars … and the enormous role placed on the shoulders of the head of every household. He therefore deeply appreciates this wisdom in achieving a worthy life, bringing up children, and positively impacting to society.

Currently living and working in Nigeria’s Delta, the Lord in His mercy opened his eyes to see the root cause of the region’s problems and how to sidestep the snare. Being led to put pen to paper, he shares his knowledge in the book in the hope that you all may join the glorious path and see His blessings upon your families, homes, society, nation, and the world at large.
