She is flamboyant and philanthropic. She is social and outgoing. She is The Oracle of God.
As much as many were eager to see Reverend Lucy Natasha unveil the man of her choice, only close friends could conclude who in the real sense her heartthrob was.
Besides, from politicians to diplomats, men of God to nonbelievers, it’s like everyone had been salivating to get a part of her.
However, her mind was made up.
“You want to marry somebody who is a friend, who you are compatible. Somebody who you have chemistry, somebody (with) who you have the same goals, same values, same vision. So that was what I was waiting for, and that is why it has taken long,” she had opened up during a candid interview late last year.
“Love is about two imperfect people coming together. I feel this is the person that God has ordained for me. He is a friend. He's someone I can talk to; if I have something good I want share, if am going through a struggle this is the person I feel that I need to share with,” she revealed.
Natasha has done a number of books and preaching series about relationships and marriage.

In her book ‘Before You Say I Do – Falling in Love Without Falling into Trouble, she outlines six weddings that must not take place.
“It is not every wedding that should take place. You should be careful not to involve yourself in a wedding that will wreck your destiny. You must be able to identify these doomed weddings and avoid them like a pledge,” she writes.
“Weddings do not define marriage. Your life depends on your marital choice. Your marital destiny depends on the kind of partner you end up with. Anyone in a bad marriage did not get there by accident. Marriage being honourable means that it is valuable and goes beyond the wedding. The person you marry determines whether you succeed in life or fail in life,” she goes on.
Natasha advices that one should never wed an immature man or woman, unbeliever and one who is extravagant. She says a wedding should not incur debts.
“Marriage is not for boys and girls but for men and women that are ready to take responsibilities. Marriage is a place of duty and sacrifice. Immature singles should never think of wedding now. Before you think of wedding, you must mature spiritually, emotionally, mentally, socially and financially,” she warns.
And as the world await her to hold her wedding, in her book, she warns that people should not expect it to be extravagant as she narrates a sad story of a couple whose sorry example should be a lesson to the world.
“It was a great wedding, the church auditorium repainted by the couple for the wedding. The cake was 19 steps high, reception took place in a five star hotel. The gown of the bride and suit of the groom together with shoes, rings and bags were imported from London. Food was in excess, drinks flowed like water.
“Few weeks after the wedding, a hot argument emerged between the young wife and husband. The man cannot provide enough money to feed his wife,” she warns.
