Investing in Our Children

by Terry Meeuwsen, Director, CBN’s Orphan’s Promise Co-host, The 700 Club When I was young (and incredibly immature), I emphatically announced to my mother that I did not intend to have children, but instead was determined to pursue a career in music and acting.

Sa Pagpapalaki ng Anak,  ang Magulang Dapat ang Pinaka-taimtim Magdasal (Part 1)

By Avelynn Garcia  To be able to raise unleashed children, ang mga magulang dapat ang  pinaka-taimtim magdasal sa pamilya. This is one of the principles we discussed in our book entitled “Unleash the Highest Potential of Your Child”.  According to Matt Slick: “Prayer is the practice of the presence of God.

How to Discipline Children (Part 2)

By Avelynn Garcia Last week, we discussed about disciplining children. Now, let’s continue… 3. Discuss the discipline process to your children.

Principle 4: Ang mga Magulang Dapat ang Pinakamatatag ang Dibdib sa Pamilya.

Principle 4: Ang mga Magulang Dapat ang Pinakamatatag ang Dibdib sa Pamilya.

 By Avelynn Garcia Sa pagpapalaki ng anak, kailangan ng mga magulang ang matatag na dibdib. Ang sabi nga ng isang quotation: “Discipline is doing what you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do it” Kapag hindi kayo matatag, maaawa kayo sa inyong anak at hindi ninyo sila didisiplinahin. May mga magulang na kung minsan ay malambot ang puso. […]

Principle 3: Ang Mga Magulang Dapat ang Pinakamabilis Humingi ng Tawad at Magpatawad sa Pamilya.

Principle 3: Ang Mga Magulang Dapat ang Pinakamabilis Humingi ng Tawad at Magpatawad sa Pamilya.

By Avelynn Garcia A popular quotation says…  “The first to APOLOGIZE is the BRAVEST The first to FORGIVE is the STRONGEST The first to FORGET is the HAPPIEST” – Anonymous This is also applicable on how to manage our children. Dahil ang mga magulang ay tao lamang, nagkakamali rin sila. Sa mga pagkakataong tayo ang nagkamali, dapat tayo rin ang […]

Redeeming the Holiday Traffic

Redeeming the Holiday Traffic

by Felichi Pangilinan-Buizon, host The 700 Club Asia Perhaps it is the outrageously high number of commuters residing in Metro Manila, or the migration of shoppers from other provinces, or the increase in year-end events that has heightened rush hour (an inappropriate term for our part of the world…maybe drag hours is more suitable) traffic. Whatever it is, it is […]

Tragic

Tragic

By Yay Padua Olmedo “Nabuntis ang anak ko, kaya ako umuwi,”  says Z, a just-returned OFW as we struck a conversation while she waited for her sundo at the NAIA airport. Z must have been building up her rage for a confrontation with her daughter. She needed to vent.  “Marami  ngang pera, nagkaganyan naman ang anak ko. Nagpapaka-alipin ka sa […]

Pass Them On

Pass Them On

I listened to a parent who took the responsibility to educate her children at home, confess how it was physically difficult for an entire year to home school as usual. Her spouse, who was in the army, was reassigned several times that year and as a family they had had to adjust to the changes. As parents, they stayed committed, […]

Supermom?

Supermom?

by Ivy Llena In 2011 my husband nominated me to a countrywide supermom search organized by a pharmaceutical company. I tried to dissuade him by saying that I did not feel worthy to be nominated for the title. My attempt proved unsuccessful because several weeks later, I received a notice telling me that I was chosen as the winner for […]

Mama Memories

Mama Memories

by Felichi Pangilinan-Buizon, co-host of The 700 Club Asia One of the verses about mothers that I am often reminded of is “Mary pondered what was happening around her and treasured the moment in her heart.” Because children are blessings as described by our Maker, I have experienced them blessing me over and over. Many times I would ponder like […]

Parenting Out of Faith, Not Fear

Parenting Out of Faith, Not Fear

Parenting is a daunting task, one that requires great patience, wisdom, and love. Being a mom or dad begs a certain amount of selflessness. For Christians, the mantel of parenthood commands a greater commitment because of the God-given responsibility with regard to the lives and souls of our children.

Traveling With Baby

“When the magi had departed, an angel from the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up. Take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt.

Do Not Fear the Rod

Our son, Silas, is almost two years old, and you know what they say about the “terrible twos.” These past few weeks, I noticed that there’s never a time when I’m at home that he will not throw tantrums, screaming his lungs out because he wants something. So I’d give him “the look” and tell him that he cannot always […]

The Secret to Eternal Youth

The Secret to Eternal Youth

“Young children were brought to Him for Him to put His hands on them and pray; but the disciples interfered. Jesus however said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them; for it is to those who are childlike that the Kingdom of the Heavens belongs.’ So He laid His hands upon them and went away.”  […]
