These Women…

~We’re there people in your life who encouraged you, showed you the ropes, and helped you become the person you are today? Most successful people say they had mentors along the way who guided and encouraged them. Take time to thank them, appreciate them and honor them.

Ate Paz left a mark on me that cannot be erased. I could talk to her about anything then, she is not the one who introduced me to Christ but she is one of those who helped strengthen my faith in Him.

I can remember so many times, sitting at the table laughing about something, throwing corny jokes, and discussing anything about life. She also gave my first bible and as I question what does my reading means, she would offer words of wisdom.  She would also encourage me and lift me up in prayer. Many we’re my mentors but she is mentioned first due to being the motivating factor for me to step out the boat and walk on water. Over the years I’ve come to realize that so many women don’t have mentors in their lives, and that’s so sad. So by God’s grace, He’s shown me a way to turn that sadness into gladness for others as I started to build new relationships and gain friends. As she shares her life, I appreciate more how does having somebody mentor you has done in my life. God has shown me a way to help bridge the wisdom that older women have to the younger women who need it so desperately just like me. And the things I learned, we just have to be obedient and available, purposeful and creative as we build relationships, shares our life and mentor others.  Spiritual relationship begins with a commitment to communicate the truth of God’s word so let’s be willing, delighted as we take time to share His truths.

1 Thessalonians 2:7-12

7 but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. 8 We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. 9 Surely you remember, brothers, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you. 10 You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. 11 For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his

With no occasion at all, I just want to honor the women who took time to mentor me over the past 12 years, namely Paz Tarray, Carol Almadin, Edith Cablao, Myla Moran, Annie Yap, and Anne Sapinoso. You’re all doing a great job in His kingdom, continue to be an encouragement, a source of strength, and an inspiration to us.  God bless you more & more.
