Big Dreams, Small steps

Big Dreams start Small  I remember as a young kid during the summer break, my cousins and I would be selling ice candy with matching dance number to our relatives. In those days, ice candy would sell for P1.00 but we would sell it for P10.00.

I often say this to the interns in our office, there is no such...

When God Shows Up in Awestruck Wonder

14 of us made a trip down under to the southernmost remote place called Tasmania in Australia in hopes of finding the Southern Lights.  We were all so excited and thrilled to know that these Southern lights a.k.a Aurora Australis appeared on this winter season.

Celebrating Motherhood

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the (wo)man that trusts in him. – Psalms 34:8 There is nothing more wonderful for me to witness than to see a mother succeed in her motherhood journey. I know we all have second guessed ourselves. I know that many feel like they are walking in the dark and it can be very overwhelming. But let me assure you that we have a God who from the very beginning designed that we would be capable and would bring Him glory as He gives us the calling to be MOTHERS....
