Tough Question: “Why doesn’t God seem to hear my requests?”

Tough Question: “Why doesn’t God seem to hear my requests?”

Waiting Woman asks: I’ve been praying for the longest time, but God doesn’t seem to hear my requests. Is there something I need to do for Him to answer my prayers? The CBN Asia Prayer Center says: Prayer is a wonderful privilege and a remarkable access to our heavenly Father. Every time you plead for your request, you must believe […]

Forced To? Chose To?

Forced To? Chose To?

by Jojo Baldo An Oppressive Edict  During the Roman occupancy, a law provided every Roman citizen senyorito privileges. Any Israelite could be compelled to carry for a Roman anything for at least one mile: farm products, pail of water, a cart of rocks perhaps. The repercussions for insubordination were harsh. Forced to acquiesce, animosity must have marked that working relationship. […]

The Destination Matters Most

The Destination Matters Most

by Gordon Robertson, Chief Executive Officer “Life is an extraordinary journey towards eternity” Life is a journey, not a destination. Slogans like this masquerade as wisdom. But as Christians, we know that our eternal destination matters more than the journey. Awareness of our destination should determine how we travel. Like Moses, we should ask God to teach us to number […]

You Cannot Achieve What You Cannot Believe

You Cannot Achieve What You Cannot Believe

In our seminars, we usually discuss reasons that hinder people from unleashing their highest potential. One of which is, someone who has a wrong belief. Belief is very powerful! Remember, we cannot achieve what we cannot believe. Hindi natin kayang abutin ang hindi natin kayang paniwalaan! Can you imagine that someday, you will become the president of the company you […]

Chika Less, Pray More

Chika Less, Pray More

By Yay Padua-Olmedo What do women engage in most when they gather? Make chika (small talk), naturally.  Some productive talkers probably even max their daily quota of 50,000 words per pax.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we gather more to study His Word and to pray? So rather than endless chikahan, let’s pray, worship, praise and thank God.  If we […]

Killing In Whose Name?

Killing In Whose Name?

by Yay Padua Olmedo “Heartless” could not even describe it—how some extremist groups have become savages, pumped our hearts with dread and even shamed governments. Consider these latest incidents happening too eerily close to each other: The MILF decimating  44 of our finest policemen;  ISIS beheading 21 Egyptian Christians;  and jihadists very recently abducting 90 Syrian believers. Last year, Boko […]

Spa for the Soul

by Felichi Pangilinan-Buizon I revisited King David’s life and as I read his last words, I was struck by 2 Samuel 22:31, “As for God his way is perfect, the word of the law is flawless…” Looks like the word, “flawless” did not originally refer to physical beauty or radiant skin. My sister just celebrated her birthday and she had […]

His Mercies Are New Every Morning

His Mercies Are New Every Morning

I get so unpredictable at times. I guess, everyone of us has that side of himself that gets so annoying sometimes. It’s funny that the more I become conscious about it, the more I begin to fail, the more I do the things I really don’t want to. It’s annoying. Really. Annoying even to me. ^^ Sometimes we end a […]

Conjugal Spending (Part 1)

Conjugal Spending  (Part 1)

  In our seminars, we usually ask, “Sino sa inyo ang magastos ang asawa? Itaas ang kamay. Eh sino naman ang mas magastos?“ Ayan, kayo pala ang problema! Naalala n’yo ba noong kinasal kayo… few years ago? (Ang iba ay few months ago.) Do you still remember your marriage vows?  Heto – “for better, for worse,”  Ano’ng kasunod?  “For richer, for […]

Superbook Builds Parent-child Connection

Superbook Builds Parent-child Connection

According to a New York Times 2014 study about The Trauma of Parenthood, it’s one thing to understand the parenting dogma, and another to personally experience raising a real child. Although many parents happily take their new role, millions every year respond with despair. Among new parents–three to six months postpartum–42 percent of mothers and 26 percent of fathers exhibited […]

Disruptive

by  Yay Padua-Olmedo What would tend to disrupt your day? The dictionary says something is “disruptive” if it creates disorder or confusion. It does not refer to mere interruption―which just breaks the continuity or uniformity of a process. Disruption connotes a sense of struggle, violence or conflict. In earthquake terms,” interruption” might mean a mere magnitude “2” on the Richter […]

My Mr. Men

My Mr. Men

By Joy Tanchi-Mendoza, Teach With Joy My boys like Mr. Men books by Roger Hargreaves.  Everytime we go to Fully Booked, they ask me to read at least one of Hargreaves’ books.
