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.
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”
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”
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.

Even so, I am not worried because she’s just as smart. She communicates by pointing, gesturing or calling at what or who she wants,Continue reading “My Noelle!”
When Noelle turned 4 months old, she already wanted to drink from my glass, and she would stare at food like she wanted to eat. I let her try drinking from my glass, which she was able to do, but she coughed up most of it. When I fed her with a spoon, she stillContinue reading “LIFE LESSONS FROM RAISING TWO PRINCESSES”
