When I talk about my girls to my friends, they often comment that our children are so open to us. When they’re around our family, they get amused seeing and hearing the girls share random stuff with us, from movies to outfits, to school stuff, to boys, to church stuff, to dreams and the future.Continue reading “Culture of Communicating”

So Here We are Again….
Here we are again, almost time for elections, online discussions getting heated. On the one hand, I appreciate the passion people have for our country. I learn from their posts. I believe they really have a place in this world, to challenge our minds and our points of view. Or actually reinforce what we alreadyContinue reading “So Here We are Again….”
What Do You Love About Mom?
The girls gave me cards for mother’s day, and in the evening, during dinner, King asked the girls what they love about me. ❤️ So what do they love about me? Danae said that I was patient with them even though they give me gray hair. Hahaha. They always say I’m patient but I reallyContinue reading “What Do You Love About Mom?”
One evening, both of our older girls told me that they were exempted from their Christian Living final exam. They said that CL is easy for them. I asked why it was easy, one of them replied with…. “Because our dad is a pastor and our parents (you) teach us the Bible.” I cringe whenContinue reading “Raising PKs”
In our home, King and I always remind our daughters that the tongue has the power of life and death. God knows we struggle with this too, but it’s easier to point it out when we hear our kids saying negative words. Story of our parenting lives right? Practice what you preach. Preach what youContinue reading “Mirror, mirror….”

Kids are somehow productive. I’ve been hearing the ukulele and piano more these days. We have been playing volleyball and badminton in the backyard. TheContinue reading “What Can We Do?”

Aaah, Vacation Bible Camp. Not something I have to do, but something I get to do. I thank God for the privilege to be part of a huge team of amazing volunteers. Their passion to serve, their love for God and for the children, their commitment and dedication to do things excellently, to push toContinue reading “I thank God for VBC”
What did you learn from the movie?
Every time we watch a movie, we ask the girls what they learn. We did the same after watching The Greatest Showman. One of them said that we shouldn’t care about what other people think about us, only what we think about ourselves. My immediate response was, “What if you think you’re ugly?” I thinkContinue reading “What did you learn from the movie?”
3 Life Lessons from Cars 3
Even though I was standing for probably half the movie, because of course, Gianna and her desire to move struck again, I liked Cars 3. It spoke to me. 1. “Truth is always quicker, kid.” I completely agree. We get to the heart of the issue if we just tell the truth. No mincing ofContinue reading “3 Life Lessons from Cars 3”
I’m not one who is easily influenced by today’s trends. I like what I like, and they may not necessarily be what’s cool at the moment. Actually, sometimes I only have cool (but very useful) stuff because my husband or mom or friends give them to me as gifts haha. Anyway, this is something weContinue reading “T.R.E.N.D.S.”
