Christian Family Learning Center

I grew up attending a small Christian school in my hometown. This past month I was asked to put together part of my testimony about my time there. CFLC played a major role in my walk with the Lord and I am honoured to have spent so much time under its tutelage.  

Meeting God in Our Loneliness

Nine months ago, I made many major changes in my life. I got married. I moved. I found a new church. I left my job. I finished school. I left my family behind. For a while, things went very well. There was much to learn and many new things to experience. A second wedding celebration…

Packing and Friendship

This week I began the arduous process of packing up my life. Tomorrow morning I will be moving back to Angels Camp. This week I had my last day of work. I changed my address for all things which ship to me, I squared away graduation information, and began saying good-bye to people who in…

Chronic Suffocation

Breathing is important. Breathing in clean air is important. And that has been at the forefront of my mind for the month of February as I’m exposed to breathing in fumes from renovation work for a prolonged period. While I’m worried about the negative effects it can have on my physical health, there are two…

When Everyone Is A Leader, Who Follows?

All those short leadership courses that teaches about styles and techniques has given us a lopsided understanding of good leadership.

3 Persuasion Techniques Not To Use

Friends persuade one another to skip classes, watch a movie, study for exam, or do something stupid. We use words that leads others to do something…

Is humility inefficient?

Paul exhorts believers to “…in humility count others more significant than ourselves” (Phil 2:3b). Is it applicable in all scenarios? It make sense for employees to consider their bosses more important than themselves, and for students their teachers, and for children their parents. But what about the other way round?

Two things you risk losing when becoming an “adult”

When Man’s Logic Becomes the Ultimate Source of Authority

Two weeks ago, I was playing a board game called Resistance with a couple of friends. In brief, this game consist of 2 spies in a team of 5 whose objective is to jeopardize a space mission, but the good guys (the Resistance) do not know who the spies are and need to figure that…
