A Christmas Countdown Activity: Counting Your Blessings

Because of our season of having a new baby, we tried to minimize our activities this usually-busy month of December. I have had to choose which activities and parties to say yes to, and for the first time since we got married, so far I have scheduled only two parties that I have to host here at home. (The past… Read more →

Supporting Your Child’s Sporty Lifestyle

In between taking care of our newborn, our toddler, and homeschooling our girls, I’ve been attempting to “feed” myself with our pastor Steve Murrell’s latest book entitled MY FIRST, SECOND, AND THIRD ATTEMPT AT PARENTING (after more important modes of feeding, of course….like reading my Bible and….uhm…having cake *cue a guilty grin here*). I have to admit my pace is… Read more →

10 Years of No Compromise with Cycles and Cradle

When I was asked to be a part of Cycles’ 10th year anniversary campaign, I did not hesitate to say yes because since Alyanna was born, Cycles has been a part of our household. Through the years, I have gone from just trying their mild laundry detergent, to using their bottle cleaners, toy and surface cleaners, and their citronella patch… Read more →

Liam’s Birth

I love how every birthing experience is unique. It is always a reminder of how sovereign God is, and how everything is always, ultimately in His hands. I asked God of three things regarding Liam’s birth: 1) For my labor to be the shortest one I’ve ever experienced so far; 2)¬†For me to be able to go through labor naturally… Read more →

Standing on God’s Promises

I know so many of my friends and almost everyone in our Victory Greenhills staff is pregnant, so I wanted to write this post as an encouragement and reminder to them, and to you! Here are some of the verses I meditated on, most especially as labor day drew near: Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. DO NOT FEAR or… Read more →

Can’t Afford to be Sick

I was going to start writing about Liam’s birth but the past two weeks have really all been a blur. Just when the adrenaline from giving birth has finally gone down and my body was just about ready to get more than a total of two hours of sleep per 24-hour cycle, we found out that Liam’s bilirubin levels were… Read more →

Finding Strength during Labor

I’m sure you’ve heard this before: “Every pregnancy is different.” The same is true with labor. (It is also true with each child as they grow up.) In my case, not only was every pregnancy different physiologically, but each pregnancy also challenged and stretched my faith in different ways and on different levels. It’s funny because though this was my… Read more →

Is Your Child Slow?

I have two types of homeschoolers: I have type A– who is able to focus and get her work done once she sets her mind to it, and type M — who will still be able to manage distracting herself even if you leave her in a room that is completely devoid of any form of stimulation. Type A, once… Read more →

Faith Like a Child: On Believing God for a Boy

In less than two months, we shall be having another addition to our family. Let’s see… I honestly have mixed emotions now. It’s funny because I actually feel like a first-time mom all over again. Of course, it is a given that we are beyond excited for the coming of our new baby. At the same time, I really feel… Read more →
