For This Cause – 13 Years Of Marriage
This Oct 13 marks the 13th year of my marriage to Derek. Sometimes I am held in awe that it has been that many years when it seems like it was not too long ago that we had gotten married, moved into our very first home and gave birth to Ethan, our first born. 13 years to some may not be a very long...Comments 0
Walking Out Of Destruction Into Destiny
On the 1st June Saturday morning, almost 100 women gathered together for our WOW31 meeting held in Singapore. It was amazing to see women from all walks of life fellowshipping freely and worshipping God with such passion and enthusiasm. I want to thank all of you who came and especially those who helped out at the meeting. As announced, I am posting a simplified...
Christian Marriage – Part 1
Till Death Do Us Part Many of you may have watched my wedding video from my last posting. If you listened carefully, you may have noticed that Derek had left out something in his vow; not deliberately but because he was a tad under the weather. This is what was left out in his vow: “all my worldly goods endowed to you” “as long...
God Is My Matchmaker – The Prize
My Earthly Prize 14th February 2012 – Valentines’ Day. It is 8am and I have just dropped the kids in school. They were so excited this morning because they had all their gifts and cards ready for their classmates and teachers. Just the night before, while cuddling in bed, Ethan pretended to find a Valentines’ Day card on the bed and passed it to...
God Is My Matchmaker – The Promise
It was the beginning of the year 1999 when I had just graduated from the City Harvest School of Theology, Singapore the year before. It happened in my annual retreat with God, where I made it my practice to seek God for the direction for the year ahead. Almost without fail, God would speak to me through an impression of what I could expect...
God Is My Matchmaker – The Preparation (Part 2)
Be the Right Woman Many single women claim that all the good men are taken or they are all married. At the same time, married women complain about how lousy they feel their husbands are. This confirms that there is no such thing as a perfect man. Or maybe there was one… There was a perfect man who met a perfect woman. After a...
God Is My Matchmaker – The Preparation (Part 1)
In my last posting, I wrote about how I engaged God as my matchmaker through a prayer. I knew that it would take time but like most women, I secretly wished that the doorbell would ring the next day and a tall, dark, handsome, rich and spiritual man would stand by the doorway with a T-shirt that says, “From God”. However, the Bible says...
God Is My Matchmaker – The Prayer
As women, there is an inherent desire in us to have companionship and to find that special someone; our life partner. During childhood, many of us would read fairy tales or watch cartoons and movies of how a princess is rescued, falls in love and is swept off her feet by her Prince Charming and they both lived happily ever after. And we often...
Home for Christmas
The title for City Harvest Church Singapore Christmas production this year is “Home for Christmas”. This is certainly true for my family and I. My husband is finally going home to the United States for good and he is bringing along our three kids and I. He has spent the last 18 years ministering in Asia and serving in the most exciting and vibrant...
