A Refugee’s Take on America

Sometimes the most unexpected conversations happen in the most unexpected places. She was my nail beautician, slim and petite, wearing a pair of glasses and a mask. But she possesses an attitude of ”I’ve seen it all, know it all” which raised my curiosity. Somehow...

Fearless

Before I tell you the background about this painting, please let me ask you, friend: Did this past year feel very heavy to you too? Tell me about it, sister! The vision of this painting came into my mind when I was wrestling with the dark spirit. This image conveyed...

Fighting for Joy

Today was a really beautiful day. Like most days, there was a lot of good tinged with a little bit of sad. Playing in the blowup pool in the backyard with my kids, making them water balloons and enjoying their laughter and carefree childhood. It reminded me a moment...

Come As You Are

Change Begins Inside of Me

I am blessed to have a small group of mom friends who, although they live far apart from me, encourage me and hold me spiritually accountable on a daily basis.  They also happen to be on my blog team. Recently, the theme of our communication seems to be this one...

Let’s Have a Honest Talk, Mamas

OK parents, we all love our children equally, right? Of course we do.  Do we all like our children equally, everyday?  Of course we don’t. Saying that will probably have me judged, criticized and thought of negatively and that’s OK. Maybe you have never felt...

What Mops (mom of preschoolers) Means to Me

That’s a wrap on the 2020/2021 MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) year! I got to be a table leader this year and it was a job that brought a lot of blessing with it. I love the new and deepened friendships. This year I learned and embraced so much.  🌷Motherhood is...
