A have an announcement you guys.
Saturday is usually ministry day for me, except if I have trips, workshops to attend/teach or events to host. Our leaders’ meeting for our Bible Study Fellowship evening women’s class in Ortigas is held Saturday mornings at 6:30. We prepare for class night, have separate leadership development sessions and we get to engage in God’s Word by sharing in the discussion questions and homiletics.
*Thanks to my fellow GL Riva for taking and sharing these photos!
For this particular Saturday, we had our leaders’ fellowship (we do this once a month) so we had time to catch-up and enjoy delicious finger food. 🙂
Following immediately was the launch of S.H.E., the support group for single young professional women in GCF. We invited blogger, speaker and homeschooling advocate Joy Tan-chi Mendoza to speak. She happens to be the niece of Tita Mina, one of the core members of the GCF Ortigas Women’s Ministry team. She brought along all five of her children, who she says are always with her and Edric (her husband) whenever they have speaking engagements.
Joy spoke on Identity: The P’s of God’s Best Life for You (Colossians 3:1-17):
1) Know your Purpose
2) Obey His Principles
3) Order Your Priorities
4) Elevate Him with Your Pursuits and Passions
5) Discover His Pleasure and Peace
Sorry if the bullet points are bitin. I tried to take down notes but I was busy making sure the camera was running well and we were still within the allotted time. The ladies looked forward to the QandA session where Joy answered questions about singlehood, homeschooling her kids, growing up, her background, married life and faith. Watch the VLOG below for more!
After the launch, I had a bit of a break so I changed to more comfy clothes. Youth worship followed at 5pm and then we also had the Youth Leaders Mentoring Session facilitated by Kuya Ave Gaspar. He taught us how to use the Precepts material for our discipleship meetings. Precepts is in-depth Bible study which challenges you to delve deep into God’s Word without the use of commentaries. You focus only on the Bible and let it speak to you as you break down the passages and do word studies.
I realized I’ve already written too much. 🙂 Go watch the VLOG below and make sure you SUBSCRIBE and give it a thumbs up! Thanks and God bless you!
A little break from the travel vlogs. This is what I shared with the young adults in Hungary (hence, the greetings). In this message I talk about boyfriends (LOL), crying over guys, asking God about marriage among many others. Coming to terms with the single life didn’t happen overnight. It was a process and I thank God for His patience and how He’s led me throughout.
Got no date this Valentine’s Season? Still single? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Watch the video to see what you can do to combat loneliness and avoid self-pity this love month.
Single this #NewYear? Chill!
Another #HappySingle VLOG to welcome the New Year.
Originally published this on my Facebook page but since the video had trouble linking here, I had to re-upload it on Youtube. May this be an encouragement to all singles this holiday season. Remember, it’s Jesus we should be celebrating. We shouldn’t be sulking that we don’t have a special someone to canoodle with.🙂 Watch […]
Oh my gosh! This is one of the most common FAQs for single women and men. While I understand that there are some who are genuinely concerned over a single person’s long-term happiness, there’s also a percentage of of those who ask just because they feel like marriage is the magical solution to all of life’s problems.
Don’t get me wrong, I respect marriage. If the Lord has that lined up for me, then I know He will work all the details out. If He wants me to stay single, that’s totally fine as well. So I was just browsing through my Facebook and came across the trailer of Jodi Sta. Maria’s new movie “The Achy Breaky Hearts” which also stars Ian Veneracion and Richard Yap as her leading men. The trailer had me laughing the whole time as it played out scenes that a typical single working Filipina faced…
