Sometimes in our hard times we forget Who is ALWAYS right beside us We try to figure out why, how, what But in my struggle to understand, I am drawn into Your Presence Your Peace calms me Your Love overwhelms me Your Grace sustains me Your Strength upholds me You give me just enough faith to believe that there is a purpose for everything That You will continue to show me Your Goodness in the land of the living I will continue to lift my hands in praise to You I will continue to speak and sing Your praises Because in All things, You areRead More →

Have you ever asked God why things happen the way they do? I would like to admit that I don’t always ask but I find myself asking a lot. But that’s simply because I am human and practicing faith in not knowing or seeing is very hard at times. About a month ago, the dr’s found a mass on Chris’ lower left side. The mass turned out to be a tumor and thankfully, it is benign! Praise the Lord! Because of the size which is bigger than Chris’ fist, it will be removed tomorrow at Maine Medical! We covet your prayers at this time asRead More →

Marriage is hard, having kids is hard, add ministry to that, it gets even harder. BUT, we do what it takes to keep this marriage and family in line…we keep God at the center, we pray together, we eat at the table together. We love hanging out with each other, sometimes a little too much! LOL! We all miss each other even if it’s just hours that we have been away from each other. We hug, kiss and dance in front of the kids. We tell each other “I love you” and ask each other about our day. We continue to learn about each other!Read More →

I am not going to lie, the past two weeks have been rough emotionally. I am thankful for the Peace that passes all understanding that can only come from God. I am also thankful for those who are praying and keeping our family in their thoughts during this time. When I get a chance, I will explain later what’s going on. But I want to share something with you before I shut down for the night. No matter what happens good or bad, there is a plan. What the devil has intended to destroy, hurt or kill you, God CAN and will take that andRead More →

Hello, friend! I just wanted to say that I am praying for you. Wherever you are right now, “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with the power through His Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullnessRead More →

  Growing up in the Philippines we didn’t have much, so we got super excited about the littlest things! One day my parents bought my brother and I two pencils each.  We were over the moon happy! After dinner, we would listen to one of the family members read out of the Bible.  I was trying to hold on to the pencils for dear life and I accidentally dropped them. Frustrated that I dropped my pencils, a family member reached over with one of their slippers and smacked me in the face with it. I was 5 at the time and didn’t know what to doRead More →

It has been a while since my last post and I am so sorry for long hiatus! It has been a crazy time since I last posted. I was preparing for a school Christmas play with my students and finishing up 2 classes with finals the same weekend. WHOA!! With God, I survived it all! LOL! Now, all the laundry and the dishes piled up. The house kind of got super messy and I have to be honest…Chris and I win for gift-giving of the year with our kids. We were set to travel after our Christmas eve service so, we gave our kids giftsRead More →

  Dear friend, As I write this, I am also reminding myself these things. Please hear me out: I see you struggling. I know how you feel when it seems as if the world is falling apart. No one seems to understand what you are going through. Some days you are as happy as those around you. Those days, you aren’t really faking it to make it. There is a glimmer of hope. Happiness IS attainable! Some days, you aren’t as hopeful because you are disappointed with how things are. There are also days where you have had enough, you just want to hide orRead More →
