Last month, our group of pastors’ wives had a basic public speaking workshop led by our church mate, Tisha Timbang, who is a member of the Toastmasters Club! To be perfectly honest, I am terrified of speaking in public. I get too nervous even when it’s just a classroom setting, and I’m the student andContinue reading “Public Speaking Workshop”

Culture of Generosity
We were peacefully watching a movie early last night when some kids came up to our gate. I asked our helper to go out and see what they needed. My curious girls ran to the window to take a look too. Danae ran back to me, telling me that the kids are hungry. She excitedlyContinue reading “Culture of Generosity”
We Weren’t Invited!
Some time last year, we were looking at pictures of a party posted on Facebook. Danae: Aww, how come we weren’t there? Me: Oh because we weren’t invited, love. Danae: Why?! Me: It’s okay, babe. We don’t always have to be invited. Danae: But why? Did they forget us? Me: No. Of course they haven’tContinue reading “We Weren’t Invited!”
Perks of Homeschooling — Opportunities
Sparks Homeschoolers have had a tradition of putting up a bazaar during the Christmas season for the last 3 or 4 years. This year, they had the opportunity to do it in a commercial place called Soderno, a big tent open only on weekends for food and bazaars in Molito Lifestyle Center. King and IContinue reading “Perks of Homeschooling — Opportunities”
Danae Learns Responsibility
One afternoon two weeks ago, Danae told me that they made something in school that involved cutting. The first time she shared her story, she just said that they made something. By evening, before going to bed, she told me that somebody cut her hair after making the craft. Curious, I asked her who itContinue reading “Danae Learns Responsibility”
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?”
Instead of critiquing me, why don’t you teach me?
My heart is just bursting right now. I have mixed feelings about a lot of things. It’s one thing to be the one receiving criticisms, judgments, doubts and the like, but it’s another thing when it’s directed at loved ones. It’s more hurtful and I feel quite helpless. But putting myself in my loved ones’Continue reading “Instead of critiquing me, why don’t you teach me?”
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?”
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”
