Chosen - A Mother's Retreat

Moms, do you ever feel like things are not going to its rightful place? Household chores become unbearable, work is demanding, the husband needs your attention, kids are not cooperative.. everyone is demanding your time and energy.

Are you overwhelmed being a Mom who wears many hats? Do you sometimes wish to disappear for a moment? 

Sometimes, all we need is a break.

A car can run on fumes for only so long. It needs to be refilled or it will stop running together. You as a mother can't continue to be everything to everybody, eventually, you will break down. You need to take a break for yourself, to rejuvenate, to make sure you are not lost while trying to hold everything together. ~ journeysofawoman.com

Whether you are a stay at home Mom, or a working mom like me, whatever season you are right now in your motherhood, here's a treat for you!

8 Years of Marriage

Last November 19, we celebrated our 8 years of marriage. Yes! 8 years, by God's grace!

I can still remember the time when I proposed marriage to my husband. Yes, you read it right, I did the proposal. Funny isn't it?

I was a new Christian when I got pregnant to Gabi, our eldest. We were living together and I was convicted that our situation is not pleasing to God. I told my husband which was my boyfriend then that if we want to live together, we need to get married. His face was puzzled but he eventually said OK. I think he doesn't want to disappoint me that time. He was just 18 then, 4 years younger than me and most of the time, I do the major decisions. I decided that we separate first in order to purify ourselves. We parted for 3 months and lived together after getting married.

The first few years of our marriage was a rocky road. We were both young and immature. We don't have a clear model of a wife and a husband. (by the way, I came from a broken family). We fight and argue a lot. We were both proud and self-centered. We have a lot of drama; from packing things, tearing our marriage contract, tossing rings, oh my! It was like a teleserye.

But I praise God because he is the restorer of every marriage. Though the enemy attempted many times to destroy it, God is sovereign. You see, there's nothing really good in us. We were both sinners with lots of faults and if God is not part of our marriage, we won't get this far.

8 Years of Marriage

After 8 years of marriage, we still argue and fight. We still exchange hurtful words from time to time. There are things about my husband that still annoys me and sometimes I still want to wring his neck, haha. But those imperfections, most of the time are covered up with love and forgiveness. We are a recipient of God's love and forgiveness, therefore, we should not withhold these things to our spouse. I choose to accept him and rejoice in his transformation because eventually, we will grow up out of our foolishness and stupidity as we walk with the Lord. 
8 Years of Marriage
hubby's sweet message posted in our FB account
Marriage should not be focused on our spouse but on the one true God. Our husbands will never complete us, only the Creator Himself. Our marriage is not perfect and it will never be. That is why we need a perfect God at the center of it. 

We have a long road to take but we are happy to know that God will lead us every step of the way. He is not done yet with our lives and we are excited for his plan to unfold.



We love because he first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 1:6

When Your child Complains

Homeschooling days are not always smooth and easy, there are rough days. Well, actually many of it. No matter how prepared we are for the day, we wouldn't know how our day will turn out.

Just the other day, we were in the middle of homeschooling, when I started giving tasks to my son, he kept on complaining. Every time I asked him to do something, I would hear him grumbling.

When Your child Complains


I'm starting to get irritated by his attitude when hubby noticed us. He advised us to stop with the lesson since his heart wasn't right at that moment. We asked him to go to bed and take a rest.

Honestly, times like this are really frustrating especially if you are catching up on some lessons. You cannot go on with your goals because your child is not ready to learn and we need to deal with his heart first.

After few minutes, I came back to my workstation and saw his notes for me.

When Your child ComplainsWhen Your child Complains
I was touched by his notes. I missed him doing this. I went to him, hold his hands and looked him in the eyes, we were both in tears. I asked him, "How can Mommy help you not to complain?". I was expecting a checklist of things to do in order to help him overcome it. But to my surprise, he gave me the best solution to his problem - prayer. He said. "Pray for me." 

I didn't expect his answer, but I was reminded that it is not us, parents who will change our kids. We can tell them what to do and not do. But in the end, only God can transform them. It is important to pray for our kids especially if they are struggling with something. We prayed and hugged each other and we were both OK. Moments like these are really precious, thanks to homeschooling!

Many times I tend to underestimate the power of prayer, that's why I need to be reminded that it should be my first line of defense. Thanks son!

Homeschooling days may have rough days but it is also an opportunity to show grace to one another. We want our kids to know that our home is a safe place to make mistakes and a place where we can show forgiveness every time we fail. 

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. ~ James 5:16

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. ~ Ezekiel 36:26-27 NIV

How about you? What do you do when your child complains? 

May I suggest, pray for them.

Kathryn and Liza’s Kitchen Best friend

The kitchen used to be a scary place for young people and cooking was a daunting task reserved for mothers and household helps. But technology played a role in guiding people around the kitchen. Nowadays, new cooks search online for cooking videos or check out “food hacks” to be able to produce any dish they want that they can, in turn, show off on social media.

Herbalife Nutrition At Work Survey Reveals Filipino Millennials Desire Healthy, Active Workplace Environment

While the survey conducted reveals that more Filipino millennials are engaging in regular physical activities outside work, they find it difficult to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle in the modern workplace.

PHILIPPINES, October 27, 2016 – Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, has released the findings from its Asia Pacific Millennials At Work Survey1, which revealed that Filipino millennials are adapting a healthy, active lifestyle, however, most believe their current workplace environment prevents them from doing so.

Millennials, or people born in between 1980 and 2000, are opting for a workplace that will encourage them to stay active, if only this will be embedded in every company culture.  About 83 percent or eight (8) in 10 millennials have agreed that they would like their company workplace to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle.

Three Years of Homeschooling by God's Grace

I remember the day when we decided to take a leap of faith to homeschool our son and pulled him out of the conventional school. We knew it will never be an easy road to take but we were all thrilled. We knew this is what God wants us to do and we believed that if He calls us to homeschool, He will bring us through it.

By God's grace, we are now on our 3rd year of homeschooling. God enabled us to go this far and I can only credit everything to Him.

Join World's Vision #HungerFree Movement

HungerFree

Food is wonderful. It engages all our senses and it brings people together. It sustains and comforts us. It’s the center of many of our celebrations.

We all love food. Unfortunately, 795 million people worldwide do not have enough to eat. In the Philippines, 1 out of 3 children under five years old are severely malnourished.

But we can change this. We believe a hungerfree world is possible – where everyone has deserves enough food for today and for tomorrow.

This October, to celebrate World Food Day on October 16, Word Vision invites us to join a movement to create a hungerfree world.

It is simple. Share a meal with someone in your community, whether at home, at a big dinner party or at a restaurant. Make that meal more meaningful by donating the cost or part of the cost of the meal to help create a hungerfree world with World Vision.

Nothing beats good food and good people having a Meaningful Meal together.


The #Hungerfree challenge

Celebrate food with World Vision! Help spread awareness and raise funds to support the health and nutrition programs in the Philippines. Will you help fight the challenging fight against hunger?  Here's how:

HungerFree
Step 1
Celebrate food, eat, and take
a photo of a meal you love.

HungerFree
Step 2 
Donate the cost of 
your meal to fight hunger.

HungerFree
Step 3 
Instagram your #hungerfreephotos and challenge your friends
to join too!

Where your support goes
World Vision extends its help to families through one of its nutrition programs, Pinoy Nutrition Hub, where parents and health workers learn how to feed children properly and practice good hygiene.

Parents with under five malnourished children would initially visit the nutrition hubs for two weeks and to continue what they learned at home for three months. Local health centers and World Vision staff for health status will regularly check children.

"I participated in PNH, desperate to find a solution for my sons. I learned about food preparation," Marites shares. "Before, I used to give my children more rice than dishes, thinking that rice alone is enough for them to grow healthy and strong. I thought because they were eating a lot of rice, they were healthy. I was wrong." 

Marites's sons Jeno, 2, and Julius, 4, had just been diagnosed as malnourished.

For 90 days, Marites religiously followed what she learned from PNH, even testing new healthy dishes. "Sometimes, when we have no money, I prepared soup made of malunggay (moringa) that I asked from our neighbor and then I mixed it with fish that my husband brought home. It's cheap but it's healthy," she said.

Soon, Jeno and Julius starting to gain weight. "I could see that my children have become a little plump. World Vision showed me an easy solution for my kids to be healthier," Marites said.

I've known Tupperware for its colorful plastic storage that has different sizes and shapes. My Nanay had Tupperware collections when we were young. I loved the stacks container and I was always excited to see the smallest of the set.

After couple of years, Tupperware is now offering not just the items I used to know as a child, but also products for Baby, Cosmetics, Fragrances, Personal Care and many more!

The Manila International Book Fair 2016: Our first!

I really have no plans of going to Manila International Book Fair if not for the Transformed: Mula sa Pagiging Transwoman Book Launch.

I recently bought used good books from our Sister in Christ and I'm trying to control my self from hording books.

We came there on a Saturday afternoon with my boys: hubby and the kiddos. The place was packed with shoppers. There was a long line in the entrance. Good thing we have our tickets printed so no need to line-up for it. I also have a list of books with me that I needed to buy for our homeschooling.

Our first stop was Tahanan Books. The booth was packed so it was hard to check on the items.

Novuhair Supports Alopecia Areata Awareness in Celebrating Inner Strength

September marks the month-long commemoration of Alopecia Areata awareness worldwide. Alopecia areata is a condition when hair loss occur due to faults in the immune system attacking the hair follicles which results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.

Leading this year’s celebration in the country is Alopecia Philippines, a group founded by singer and songwriter Abby Asistio in 2012. She has been championing the cause of empowering citizens with this condition.

 Abby is no stranger to alopecia, having been diagnosed with alopecia areata since she was four years old. Abby’s decision to come out in public with her condition was a major turning point in her life.

On September 2012, Abby decided to start an online campaign in time with Alopecia Awareness Month by inviting family and friends to pose with the double “A” (inverted “V”) sign using their fingers on the photo sharing site, Instagram. It quickly caught on and Abby was overwhelmed by the response from netizens, with over a thousand photo contributions to date.

This paved the way for the beginnings of Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, and create an online support community for them.
