RPG

I am a person who rarely watches local films, probably because I’m not really interested in the stories they present or I did not grow up appreciating Filipino movies, except for Maricel Soriano comedies of course. There are very few movies I am intrigued by and I don’t go out of my way to watchContinue reading “RPG”

HAND-ME-DOWNS

a repost from my tumbler (http://awellofwisdom.tumblr.com/), written October 27…. My 5-year old daughter had her best friend over today, and my hubby called me into the room they were at to show me what they had done. All the stuffed animals on the topmost shelf of my closet were on the floor — Danae climbedContinue reading “HAND-ME-DOWNS”

Top of the class!

Last month was Danae’s school’s parent-teacher conference and I was pretty excited to find out how well my daughter did. As I was waiting outside for my turn, I saw on the bulletin board the names of the top 3 students… the 3 kids who topped the kinder classes’ 1st achievement test. DANAE’S NAME WASContinue reading “Top of the class!”

SOUND FAMILIAR?

I’ve taken note of these conversations in the past months because they made me think. Campus missionary Francis Villanueva’s great preaching at youth service yesterday about LUSOT, LAKAD & LAGAY, pushed me to finally finish and post it. Me: Nae, don’t stand on that chair. Your sister will copy you. (a constant line in ourContinue reading “SOUND FAMILIAR?”

WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK

Danae has had on and off fever since Sunday. Not only that, it would spike to as high as 39.5, then disappear. What made it more weird was that Danae was active and she didn’t lose her appetite. She was a bit cranky of course, but that’s normal when kids are sick with cough andContinue reading “WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK”

VISUAL, are you?

There are things we think our children are ready for, but they may really not be, even if we properly explain it to them or even if they seem to respond the right way.

TEETH, TEETH, TEETH

Ever since Noelle had multiple teeth, which was when she was about a year old, I’d already noticed some white stuff on her upper front teeth. I would try to brush it away or even scratch it off with my fingers, but it wouldn’t come off. I asked around and I was told that itContinue reading “TEETH, TEETH, TEETH”

EN2010 (pre-con): Discipleship@Home

There were quite a number of sessions before EN2010, and King wanted me to attend the international staff meeting Wednesday morning, the day before the conference. I had to wait for Danae’s class to finish, pick her up, get the kids and everything ready, then proceed to ENLI building in the Fort. In other words,Continue reading “EN2010 (pre-con): Discipleship@Home”

EN2010 Through A Mom’s Eyes

We just concluded our 3-day Every Nation 2010 World Conference at SMX last Saturday. What an awesome time, coming together from all over the world as one church, hearing the most inspiring testimonies, learning from the most diverse bunch of speakers ever, and worshiping God in our own ways and languages! Check out the article on Inquirer.

God’s Word to a Child

Attending the 8am service today and hearing Ptr Jun’s preaching about the authority of God’s word in our lives reinforced my plan to share about what our daughter Danae has been learning these days. As much as possible, King and I read the Bible to our girls (though Noelle doesn’t really sit and listen yetContinue reading “God’s Word to a Child”
