Dating Tips From Parents

Dating is an important subject that parents must discuss with their kids. I believe that parents should be the primary influence in a child's life therefore while they are young, we need to be able to tell teach them about important issues in life such as dating. There will come a time in the child's life when she or he will wonder about first date ideas. I think it would be great if parents and the child have an open communication so that the child can ask any sort of question she or he might have about first dates. It is important that the parents do not dismiss the questions because the child is really curious and wants to share a sensitive topic in his or her life.

The parent could share some dating experiences and give some real life scenarios about dos and donts when going on dates. If the parent isn't sure where to start, they can discuss a movie they have recently seen about dating and relationships. The can even surf the net together to look at top dating sites.

Teaching our children about the dating and relationships is integral because there will come a time when the child will decide by himself or herself who they want to be with. As parents, we can only support their decisions and stand by them when the time comes. I believe it is better to be proactive than be reactive.

Happy Community Foundation


Once in a while, you come across some organizations which inspire you to share more of yourself. Happy Community Foundation is one of those.

"Happy Community Foundation is a licensed non-profit, non-religious, non-government foundation serving within the diverse communities of Bangkok, Thailand."

This individuals who volunteer in helping the people in Bangkok volunteer because they love the people in the area... if we want them to continue doing their outreach, it is important that we do our share by praying for them and by sharing thru financial support, book donation or volunteering.

Moving Words Monday : Psalm 118:24


When it is gloomy and life is hard, we often complain and forget about what God has blessed us with. Today, we are reminded to rejoice and be glad, because no matter what we face ahead of us, God has chosen to give us another day to live. There is hope in Him!

Stay on the Path of Purity

Psalm 119: 9-16

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, LORD;
teach me your decrees.
With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.

Psalm 112

What a great blessing from the Lord!

1Blessed are those who fear the LORD,

who find great delight in his commands.

2 Their children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures forever.
4 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
5 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
who conduct their affairs with justice.

6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
they will be remembered forever.
7 They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
their righteousness endures forever;
their horn will be lifted high in honor.
