This morning is one of those mornings when I can close the door, lock it, turn on my worship playlist, sing, read my Bible, hear from my Father, get recharged— without rushing. It’s the weekend.

I Wanted to Fight Like Mayweather

Much has been said about the “fight of the century” last Sunday, that turned out to be not as exciting as all the previous fights Manny Pacquiao has fought.

Five Things to Remember When You’re “Help-less”

There are two reasons why I chose to be silent here for over a month. One, our helpers went on leave starting the holidays. And reason number two, I had to help the kids re-establish their routines since we were either out of the country or out of town for the most part of the latter half of last year.… Read more →

Marriage Check: Where Do Your Efforts Go?

After three weeks of not having a date with Dennis, we were both looking forward to some couple time.  It was just perfect then, that we were given a free overnight stay at Acacia Hotel as soon as we got back from our trip. This explains why I am inspired to write this post. Our marriages take a lot of hard… Read more →
