After losing all our savings last year because of a setback, I have, ever since, learned how to wait on God’s will for our lives. It doesn’t literally mean we stop making plans of our own. Actually, 2020 is full of life-changing plans for us. The kids and I were supposed to fly this month… Continue reading Peace During the Coronavirus
Ever since Mike left his corporate job eight months ago and tried to start a business, life has given us more lemons than we could ever imagine. There was all these constant worry about rent, bills, our children’s education, and my worst fear: a sick family member. Up until this point, I honestly couldn’t believe… Continue reading A Setback, Singapore and Today.
Our kids are known to be on the slender side compared to other kids their age.

We were cheerful and surprisingly the kids were peacefully finishing… Continue reading Love Your Children

There I was thinking I should break up with… Continue reading The Promised Spouse
How you perceive your son’s future describes how you are raising them today. It’s fathers’ day and all I can think about is Miguel’s behavior.

There is a great deal of sorrow with what is happening with the world lately that is associated with killings. Terrorist groups murdering innocent people is one story, but what bothers me the most is the prevalent number of individuals committing suicide.
