Hong Kong Disneyland- I’m writing this halfway through what’s going to be our small families first (of many!) out of the country travels. This is also Alexa and Ces’ first vacation abroad. As I write this, a few thoughts are running through my head mostly excitement and nervousness. Excitement because of the itinerary and nervousness […]
Twenty-seven years. That’s how long it’s been since the woman of my dreams was born into this world, and I can’t begin to express just how thankful I am that God brought my wife Ces to be who she is. I wasn’t there when it happened (because I would only be born sixteen days after), […]
If you got married in the last five years, then you’ve probably heard of and even studied Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages.” Me and Ces did, and it was a tremendous help to understanding each other and God’s ultimate plan for marriage. I love studying love languages and highly recommend it to other couples […]
The other night the family went out for milkshakes and tea. Before heading to a coffeeshop, we passed by a close-by Seven-Eleven because I had promised Alexa gummy worms (Yep! I’m the parent that occasionally lets my daughter eat candy. Guilty as charged.)

Tonight while at the office, I heard one of Chris Tomlin’s newest songs, “Good, Good Father,” and once again, I was wrecked by the Father’s extravagant love. From the office until I went to the mall, I was just extremely overwhelmed by the idea of God’s love that I later found myself crying while going […]
It was a bright and sunny afternoon, but all I wanted deep down inside was to be in the same dark gloomy room as my wife. I paced back and forth for what seemed like eternity, when it was actually just under thirty minutes. I was sweating and my heart pounding heavily. Might sound like […]
I was going through Youtube, one time, looking for some keynotes and tutorial videos to watch. Then I stumbled upon this amazing video by Bill Hybels. I have to say, that this is the one of a very few Youtube videos that have really transformed the way I do life completely.
Reciprocity is important in a relationship. I remember that many people told me before getting married, “Kiko, you have to make sure that you and Ces reciprocate each others efforts.” But what happens when you’re spouse isn’t being fair? What if you’ve been serving non-stop, and your spouse just keeps taking without giving?
