Learning from stories

I love learning, I love stories, and I love learning from stories. There’s nothing like being so captivated by a story that you lose track of time. Great stories can ignite emotions in the depths of one’s soul and unlock new ways of thinking–that’s why I love them so much. Here are some stories that I want to share with you: 1. Blue Like Jazz – I’ve always loved this book by Donald Miller and now I love the movie....

Who wants to watch Planetshakers? :)

I do! PLANETSHAKERS, one of my favorite bands, is coming to Manila on March 12, and I’m going to miss it!  :( But guess what? You don’t have to. :) In a moment, I’ll tell you how you can win free tickets for yourself + THREE of your friends (yes, 3!) to watch Planetshakers live at the PhilSports Arena (formerly ULTRA) in Pasig. I’ll also tell you how you could win some Planetshakers CDs! And there’s more awesome news, but...

Do you know someone in this photo?

I came across an old photo (or in this case, a collection of photos) and I thought that this would be a good time to jump in on a Tumblr tradition: GPOYW a.k.a. Gratuitous Picture Of Yourself Wednesday (it’s still Wednesday as I write and post this!) So without further ado, here it is: Can you spot me? Here’s a clue: I looked really uncomfortable (somebody didn’t like her outfit)! I tried to connect this discovery to something deep and...

What I’m Loving This Week: GREAT VIDEOS (and more blog posts!)

This week has been all about videos! I’ve got more awesome stuff to share with you: 1) LeBron’s Nike commercial – One of the most creative commercials I’ve seen this year. I came across this by way of Carlos Whittaker’s blog–the comments section on his blog post alone is worth spending time on. Lots of great insights. In my opinion, what makes this commercial great is that it causes the viewer to really think. It’s controversial, clever, and thought-provoking all...

What we want to do/will do/should do/must do!

My friends and I put together a small and intimate women’s event yesterday called SPARK! During the event, SPARK! creator Carisse Escueta asked us to fill up a SPARK! List. Similar to a bucket list, the SPARK! List was all about filling up the blanks: “I want  ______________” “I will  _______________” “I should _____________” “I must  ______________” Each woman was asked to fill up their own lists, using those prompts. Once we were done, we shared what we wrote with...

The hottest rock band in town

Two Sundays ago, I watched a really cool band. I just had to blog about these guys, because watching them was one of the highlights of my month! They had the crowd singing and dancing…everybody had a blast! Introducing, our Kids Church music team! Seriously…are these not the two coolest band members you’ve ever seen? I love seeing our future leaders in action! :) * * * If you liked this, you might be interested in these related posts: Words...

What I'm Loving This Week (June 28 to July 4, 2010)

1) Fishforpeople.net – I can’t remember if I’ve blogged about this before, but I’ve always liked this site, which was recommended to me by @carissescueta. Visited it again today. Really awesome stuff. Here are some of my faves: But some of his best stuff are the ones made on Flash. Be sure to check these ones out! –> Psalm 147:4, Psalm 74:16, and Isaiah 40:8. The great news is that you can download almost the entire Fishforpeople collection here. (The...

My simple joys

It’s funny how time and time again we get deceived into thinking that happiness is tied to wealth, success, fame, or power, and yet some of the simplest things in life that we often don’t notice can bring such joy! All throughout this trip, God has romanced me in ways that seem too simple and yet leave such an impact on me. Here are some of my simple joys (some are old and some are new!): 1) SEEING STORIES TOLD...
