Ladies: Here Are 5 Things a Man Needs Before a Woman  

All content for this post is taken from Dr. Myles Monroe’s preaching of “the 5 characteristics of an ideal man”

Let’s just jump right into it!

A bible study was done where Adam, the first male human created, was the focus of the study. Why was Adam chosen as the center of this study? Simply because God created him with specific instructions to fulfill before later deciding that it was not good for Adam to be alone, resulting in the creation of Eve. God created Adam to have dominion over the earth, the seas and all walks of life. He wanted Adam to enjoy his time in Eden, the protective environment formed for him. Eden cannot be found on a map today, it was never an actual location, instead it represented an environment. Better yet, Eden was the presence of God. Before sin entered earth, Eden signified the union between God and Man, and it was a beautiful place to be.

  1. Therefore, first thing God gave man was his presence. So the first thing a man needs isn’t a woman, it is Eden, or the presence of God. A woman should meet a man in the presence of God.

TIP: Ladies don’t try and drag a man back to Eden, meet the man there! 🙂


    Genesis 2:15 God commanded Adam to work… Yes ladies God’s priorities are VERY CLEAR, he requires the man to work. Not only a job to provide for the family but also being aware of or moving towards a vision. Preferably he should be opting to fulfill his purpose on earth otherwise he can get confused very easily, following any path that leads him to anywhere. The best form of grounding himself would be in Eden and in the word, this way he can receive divine direction.

    Genesis 2:16 God said to Adam that he should be the cultivator meaning he should bring out the best in everything around him, maximize its potential and produce fruit. He requires the man to fulfill his purpose in the world. The best example of a real man is Christ. Believe it or not, he has a wife as well. Christ is married to a beautiful diverse woman and her name is The Church. He tells men to do what he has done to his wife which is to Love their wife like he loves his own. Wash her with the word of God, raise her with encouragement, help her to be less insecure and enable her to reach her fullest potential as well. Then he is free to present her back to himself.

4. God commanded Adam to Guard the Garden. The male is designed to be the protector. He has not been given a stronger and larger frame to abuse the woman or family; he has been made that way to protect her and his family.

5. journal writingGenesis 2:17 The last thing God gave Adam was his word. God never spoke directly to the woman to inform her about the tree of good and evil. He never told her not to eat from its fruit but he did tell the man. Since the man received the word of God, his job was to teach it to his wife. It seems often in this day and age that the woman knows more word than the man. A man should know the word before meeting a woman.

Genesis 2:18 Then God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” The man God is referring to is a man who is in Eden, Working, Cultivating, Protecting and has the word, that man can now receive his Eve.

         If the man does not experience the presence of God, isn’t working, does not cultivate, refuses to protect and does not have the word, It is good for that man to be alone.

Mastermind: The Benefits of Exercise on your Brain: Neuroplasticity

I completed my spring course on Brain and Behavior about a couple weeks ago as an elective towards my BScN degree. Although most of the topics taught in the class were captivating, the most intriguing section had to be learning about the brains ability to heal itself, grow and change in healthy ways when paired with the practice of good habits. Its crazy to think that what we’ve been learning since we were kids about staying healthy and exercising regularly could have such a powerful impact on the success of our brains structure and functions. I mean, I’ve always heard that exercising and movement is great, but it only recently was given more meaning when I connected it to my own life and understanding.

First off lets define what neuroplasticity is. I found a great definition off of which states that..

“Neuroplasticity is the brain’s amazing capacity to change and adapt. It refers to the physiological changes in the brain that happen as the result of our interactions with our environment. From the time the brain begins to develop in utero until the day we die, the connections among the cells in our brains reorganize in response to our changing needs. This dynamic process allows us to learn from and adapt to different experiences.”

Research suggests that exercise is one of the most transformative activities that benefit the brain. Some of the many benefits as stated by Dr. Suzuki, a professor of neuroscience and well known for her research in expanding the fields literature, include..

  • Increased mood and energy
  • Much better memory
  • Increased attention span (can last for at least 2 hours longer than normal)
  • Immediate effects of the brain ex. increased dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline which help you ‘feel good’ after just a single workout
  • Greatly improve reaction time (incase you’re clumsy like me and tend to drop things all the time)
  • Enhanced protection on the brain

“Exercise helps to change the brains anatomy, physiology and function.” ~Dr. Suzuki~

Retrieved from:

A Great example of this is looking at the effects of exercise on the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex (area in the brain dedicated to memory and focus respectively). New brain cells are generated in response to consistent exercise and these brain cells help to beef up the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, increase their volumes and improve long term memory, attention span and focus. These areas are vital not only because they deal with so many complex cognitive functions but also because they are the target for many neurological diseases and cognitive deficits that come with aging. Diseases like Dementia and Alzheimer’s tend to eradicate cells associated with these areas, thereby leaving you or your loved ones with cognitive impairments. This being said there is no actual cure for Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, however, with proper exercise, you can build up your hippocampus and prefrontal cortex to substantially delay the effects of these detrimental diseases. Suzuki says it best “exercise is like a super charged RRSP –(retirement fund) for your brain.”

“To reap long lasting benefits of the brain, make sure you change your workout regime and increase your cardio respiratory functions”

Dr. Suzuki suggests to simply..

  • Exercising 3-4 times a week
  • Minimum of 30 minutes for each workout session.
  • Aerobic exercise (like walking, jogging, swimming etc.) in order to elevate your heart rate.

To conclude I want to leave you guys with a link to purchase Dr. Suzuki’s book titled Healthy Brain, Happy Life. And if you are wondering where I got content for this post its mostly found here in Suzuki’s TED talk video. I recommend watching to the end, its my primary inspiration for writing on this subject for my blog.

Thank you for reading this weeks blog! let me know in the comments if it was something that interested you and like the blog post if you had a fun time learning or reviewing this topic. I hope to write on more educational subjects in the near future. But for now keep exercising, keep growing your brains and Ill see you next time!
