If there is one thing I want to tell men — youth, single and married alike — is that they ought to be men of courage. We all know that courage is not not being afraid, but going ahead and doing something despite the fear and despite the challenge.Courage after all, stems from faith. How courageous oneContinue reading “Courage of A King”

Summer is over!
Summer is officially over because we started homeschooling yesterday! Where did the two months all go? As usual, it was hectic with all sorts of activities for the kids and for us. With April and May alone, I created about 29 albums in my Facebook account! The highlights for me were the following: Last MayContinue reading “Summer is over!”
Our new series in church is 10X, all about the next generation. While listening to the preaching yesterday, I was close to tears. Aside from Ptr Jonathan’s touching story about his brave teenage daughter KC who went through so much as a child, operations for her cleft palate and scoliosis, bullying and isolation because sheContinue reading “10X”
“I don’t know.”
There are many instances where my kids do things that make absolutely no sense to me — things like doing again the very thing that has gotten them hurt or in trouble, or getting upset that they’re being”blamed” for doing something they actually did, or filling their bags with all sorts of things they don’tContinue reading ““I don’t know.””
Danae Can’t Dance?
Danae and I had been practicing the past week with our church’s Vacation Bible Camp dance team. We volunteered to join the team that would lead the praise dance on stage and with the kids in the classroom. On Tuesday night, Danae pulled a muscle as she ran abruptly to chase Noelle while we wereContinue reading “Danae Can’t Dance?”
A friend and I were talking about families last week, and I realized that my family is pretty “drama-free.” There aren’t really any issues, at least none that I’m aware of haha. It wasn’t drama-free when I was a teenager and a young adult, pre-Jesus, but it’s been peaceful for a long time now, evenContinue reading “Drama-free Momma”
My Little Boy?
King and I went on a double date last night with our good friends John and Joyce. The plan was to meet them inside the mall to have dinner and watch Iron Man 3, which was completely awesome by the way, and I don’t think anyone can play Iron Man better than Robert Downey, Jr!Continue reading “My Little Boy?”
Jesus and Parenting
2012 was such an enlightening year for me, especially in parenting. There was a season where I was always stressed, very easily angered and often very much frustrated. I would complain to King about how our kids were turning out. They had their great moments, no doubt, but when they would disobey, I would beContinue reading “Jesus and Parenting”
Learning Modesty 2
We went to our friends Ding and Dons’ resort called Beach Camp in Batangas on Sunday morning, two weeks ago. We were with a few adults and 8 kids. King and my friend May’s hubby Jay followed that night, after a full day of work in church. The place was grassy and it was veryContinue reading “Learning Modesty 2”
My friend from Japan sent us some gifts last week — yummy truffles for me and King, a clay play set for Noelle, and a scrunchie-maker for Danae. The girls were thrilled with their new toys. They hurried eating their breakfast so they could play, despite our request to wait. To make the long storyContinue reading “Please Wait!”
