It is ok to fail. it is not ok to Quit.

I

As I am working on my thesis for my M Div, I started to think about being a father. One thing that dawned on my mind when I first step into fatherhood, especially when it comes to discipling our children, is that I realized I couldn’t do it. Or I don’t think I can. I am never good with children. It is too difficult. How can I share God’s love, speak the truth and help them...

Dismount and push

D

In Singapore, they built paved paths known as PCN (Park Connectors). As the name implies, it connects from one park to another. This is great because you can cycle, blade or run between parks. Earlier this week I was exploring a route from Bishan down to Marina Bay Sands. It was fun exploring and riding a roadie (road bike). Once in a while, I came across certain sections where you have to...

who should disciple our children?

w

Amidst all the busyness of life, taking care of two toddlers and working on my thesis, I want to jot this down. I started the journey to Masters of Divinity when I was in Uganda (mid 2014). Now I am almost done. I need to write a thesis and then that’s end of it. To my surprise, I felt God wants me to write on discipleship and parenting. Given I am a father of two, this topic weights...

What is Biblical Parenting?

W

When we started our homeschooling journey last year, we’ve met a number of homeschooling parents in Singapore. They are also Christian and a number of them rave about this Christian teaching methodology. I, too, desire my children to learn Jesus. So I went online and to find out more about this ‘methodology’. In a short while, I told my wife, “it is a good methodology but...

Do I want to go back to ministry? – a reflection

D

A special shoutout for my wife for putting the kids to sleep so I can write this blog 😀 I will jot a few thoughts about being a stay-at-home dad and someone who used to be in ministry.  Today someone asked me this question, “do I want to go back to ministry?” The answer is YES, and of course.  But this doesn’t mean I will jump back in, not at least in this season. Being a stay-at-home...

bending backward to share the joy of Christ to my kids

b

Growing up, my family never really celebrated Christmas. I remembered we use to put up a tree when I was small. But as we grew up, neither my sister nor myself felt the need to do any decoration. Mind you; we weren’t Christians. Though we were baptized as Catholics, we weren’t very religious. When I became a parent, it started to dawn on me the importance of Christmas. Especially now...

Slowing Down

S

I love getting stuff done and getting them done fast. There is no better feeling than checking off my to-do list.  I quickly learn that when I take my girls out, I have to slow down. Life is not about rushing to get stuff done. Instead, it is finding opportunities in the ordinary day to day life to teach girls, especially God’s truths. The wrong paradigm is to assume kids learn the...

Sowing Into My Children

S

I was never fond of children. I always joked that I have a talent in making them cry. But everything changed when Sarah-Faith was born. Raising her and now, along with our second one, changed a lot on how I perceive about raising children. I am not writing this because I am a great father, nor I am the type that enjoys every single moment with them. Like many things in life, there are ups and...
