The Future According to Danae

Lately, Danae’s been harping about her future baby brother and actually planning his life already, saying he’s going to do this and that, and telling me what she and Noelle are going to do with him. Also after coming to us with all sorts of unusual names, we finally agreed on naming him David. IContinue reading “The Future According to Danae”

I CHOOSE CONFLICT!

Being married and raising kids is a tough, tough job. But the way I see it, we spouses and parents, have two choices when we see our family members having trouble with something or doing something we don’t agree with or when we see that they’re about to make a big mistake. Do we engageContinue reading “I CHOOSE CONFLICT!”

DAYUHAN KA BA SA IYONG SARILING BAYAN?

This was how I felt when the Luceros decided to visit Luneta Park after a children’s party last night. I was pretty excited because the last time I was there was around 10 years ago when I attended the Jesus Revolution. The last time I was in front of our national hero Jose Rizal’s monumentContinue reading “DAYUHAN KA BA SA IYONG SARILING BAYAN?”

DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!

Danae watched Gulliver’s Travels yesterday with her cousin Javi and his grandparents, as she was invited the other night. It was her first time to watch a movie in the theater without us. I did not hesitate because I knew she would be in good hands, and I was pretty sure the movie was safeContinue reading “DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!”

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?”

MARRIAGE BOOSTERS!

We recently attended Marriage Boosters with Ptr Chico and Maryanne Pena. We were the last batch of couples for this year. I’m sharing parts of my letter to King, which we were all assigned to do for our spouses, along with the very important lessons I learned and relearned from our tender-hearted, humble, wise, exemplaryContinue reading “MARRIAGE BOOSTERS!”

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.

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”
