    Confession:  Sometimes I think I’m crazy. Hebrews 11:7 – “By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told. The result? His family was saved. His act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the […]

  • Proud


    Confession: I can’t say that I’m proud to be Korean. This isn’t a reflection of my feelings toward my heritage or country, but simply, it wouldn’t be accurate. I’m not proud to be Korean. I’m thankful to be Korean. I love being Korean. I appreciate our history, our struggles, our mistakes, our victories, our language, our food, our strange […]

  • Follow Me

    Confession: I really identify with Peter’s denial.   Jesus: Where I’m going now, you can’t follow. But you will later. Peter: Why can’t I follow you? I’d die for you! Jesus: Really? Bro, you’re actually going to deny me not once, not twice, but three          times…in a few hours as a matter […]

  • From My Journal: Two Pitfalls of Being A Missionary. WATCH OUT!

    Missionarygance  [missionary + arrogance]:  conquering, ruling & didactic attitude toward the culture, people, or region you’re sent to. Assumes that you’re wiser, smarter, or somehow spiritually superior to those you’re meant to serve and partner with. Missionarygance most likely has historical/discursive roots in colonization & western imperialism. Results in presumptive & overall donkey-like behavior that can be harmful to building […]

  • Rejecting the Way of Caesar

    Rejecting the Way of Caesar

    Confession:  I don’t actually like politics. There was a time in my childhood that I considered being a lawyer, a judge, a politician, the President. But I quickly got bored with all the posturing and empty rhetoric that honestly didn’t make any sense to me and seemed like a whole big hullabaloo that complicated life, made people easily offended […]

  • Finding the Mr. Wrongs

    Confession:  In early 2015, I had an active Tinder account for roughly 2 weeks. I’ll wait till the shock and/or hysterical laughter subsides…yes yes, funny, yes…mmhmm….yup, great, ok, yes, thank you, thank you, settle down now, folks, settle down. Ahem. No, I wasn’t ignorant to the fact that people criticize Tinder as the online “hookup” dating […]

  • God Only Knows What I’d Do

    without them:  These are my amazing, adorable, supportive, inspiring, noble, courageous, fun, virtuous, generous, compassionate, patient, long-suffering, God-loving, and loving parents. God only knows what I’d do without them. I mean, I literally wouldn’t be here without them (wah-wah). But seriously. Through my awkward childhood, rebellious teens, destructive & turnaround twenties, stabilizing & getting awesomer current thirties…they […]

  • Being Brave & Other Things, According to 3rd Graders

    A few Saturdays ago, a couple of my 3rd graders and I had a pre-reading discussion for The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo, which is a tale about a very brave mouse, a lovely princess, a sad king, an unfortunate rat, and a homely girl who just wants to be loved. To begin the discussion, I asked […]

  • That Time My Dog Ran Away…Again

    Last week, one of my dogs escaped from my apt and was lost for approximately 24 hours. I hated every minute of those 24 hours. About 2 hours into realizing he was missing, I discovered that a couple of men who hang out at the corner liquor store every day had gone around the neighborhood […]

  • The Wilderness, Still? Seriously?

    The story of Moses and the Israelites’ journey out of Egypt is one of my favorite in the Old Testament. I love and honor Moses, weaknesses and strengths and all. I love and appreciate the Israelites, even though they kind of really dropped the ball multiple times (golden calf, not killing the giants, rebelling against […]
