I did not technically read this book. I read the beginning third of the book, and skipped to the last 2 pages to find the murderer. I didn’t want to waste time with the details in the middle. I read slow so unless the writing style is one I can follow easily, I read even […]

God is so good to our family! My son and DIL, after experiencing the stillborn death of their firstborn last year, just gave birth to a healthy baby girl. They say only 5% of babies are born on their due date. She’s in that 5%, born on her due date of October 30. God graciously […]

We’ve been driving out to LA to see our granddaughter every Monday on my day off. Roundtrip driving time is over 2.5 hours. We try to be productive with that time – catching up, listen to Mandarin lessons on Youtube, bouncing off ministry ideas. But it’s still a long drive to me. Yes, I know […]

I read this easy children’s missionary biography to keep up with reading one book a month. (I actually read 2-3 books at one time, switching back and forth when I get bored with one.) I had not heard of Grenfell. He is a contemporary of Hudson Taylor in the early 1900′s. Those were the golden […]

I like baskets, glass jars, and craft material. You never know when you need those. Actually I don’t really use baskets that much but I can’t explain why I like them. My husband says they take up too much room in the garage. It’s true. I’ve held back on getting more. I haven’t gotten a […]

I don’t like it when something is not done efficiently. I get impatient with people like that. I am impatient with extra slow clerks, or when my husband doesn’t run a yellow light. I don’t like it when I am not efficient. Maybe that’s why it’s hard for me to sit down to read. I […]

I immediately applied the principle in this One to One book to read the Bible with a friend. A friend told me she’s been struggling with consistent Bible reading. So I said, why don’t we read the Bible together. We are starting with Galatians, one chapter a day, and will text each other with an […]

“Don’t even think about retirement, Katy!” That’s what my Senior Pastor said to me, no less than 3 times. I want to be here at our church in 10 years when a new English senior pastor will take over. It’ll be an exciting season. I love transitions when the next generation takes over. I don’t […]

This was a fast read, only 56 pages of content, and another 50+ pages of resources and outlines. I borrowed this book from AL after reading his book review. After reading this book, I am motivated to read the Bible with someone. I’ll pray that God will bring someone to me. I wish I could […]

Jetlag has not been too bad this time returning from Taiwan STM. I am pretty much adjusted by the 4th day. The second day I slept till 12:30pm, but last year I remember I slept till 2pm more than one day. I’m not experiencing as much “dissonance” in reverse culture shock this time. In past […]

After Taiwan Short Term Mission – There are too many highlights, I cannot capture the fullness of what God did in and through us. Here are just some random thoughts, some more significant than others. It’s been a while since I’ve shared the full gospel with an adult. So fun and refreshing, and challenging to […]
