On Young Love

Living with a thirteen year old is quite a tricky thing. He’s a teenager, but not quite old enough (or mature enough) to be let go completely. We do give our son, Pablo, a little more room to try to do things on his own. He can go to the mall with his friends, take himself to a couple of his trainings, and I no longer chaperone him to his parties. His dad and I are fully aware that he’s at that age when he wants a little more independence for himself. I read about it in my favorite book […]

Review: Olive Tree Bible Software for your Daily Devotions

I’ve been meaning to talk about Olive Tree since last year when I first started using it. I have been looking for Bible Reading plans and I came across the link in one of the blogs I’ve been reading. Olive Tree Bible Software¬†can be downloaded on most mobile gadgets. I use an iPhone so it’s where I downloaded it. I find it very handy especially when I need to unload my bag of heavy things to make my traveling more manageable. If you want to have your Bible and your reading plans along with you all the time, it’s a […]

Christmas Traditions: As for me and my household…

This is probably the most late we’ve started our Family Christmas Traditions. The kids had shows until mid-December and there were other commitments that we honored, and Jay has work until tonight; so we ended up putting up our Christmas tree two days before Christmas. We did drop by The Festival of Lights last 16th, right after our two younger kids’ school musicals, and we had a little celebration going on, but it felt so rushed because Jay had to go to work the next morning. Save our Christmas Traditions! I tried to save our Christmas Traditions this year by […]

Christmas Traditions: Happy Birthday Jesus party

I always look forward to the Christmas season because December is the only month we get to really spend time together as a family. All throughout the year, we always find ourselves swamped with so many activities, that even when we do find time to watch movies together or eat out, it’s almost always as if we’re in a rush. Time is never enough. Jay and I agreed to lessen our commitments on December so we can really spend undivided time with the kids and use the time to worship Jesus together. However, we do consider joining a few parties […]

Christmas Traditions: The Festival of Lights

It’s our fifth year (I think!) to include The Festival of Lights in our Christmas Traditions itinerary. The past two years, we’ve made sure to pass by it after our kids’ annual school musical which they’ve been staging at the RCBC theater in Ayala. Since we’re already in the area, I thought we might as well scoot over and see the beautiful lights dance at Ayala Triangle the same day. Family Christmas Traditions came really late for us this year. Pablo’s show, Matilda, closed on December 10 and Lukas’ and Judah’s school musical, All About that Baby, was staged yesterday, […]
