The theme or the topic of the conference is:
Set Apart, Make an Impact!
The theme itself stirs up something in me!
The two speakers for this year’s Chicago Conference are Pastor Nebiye and I. I can’t tell you how excited I’m to minister with Pastor Nebiye who is the husband of a beautiful woman and a father of four beautiful children. I met Pastor Nebiye in San Francisco and after we spoke for few minutes, I realized that we had the same passion, similar call, same message and hear this, we read similar books.
So, when I first heard that Pastor Nebiye is the other minister invited to speak at this year’s Chicago Conference, I can’t tell you how excited I was and still am.
So, if you are going to be in the DC area from July 22-25, I invite you to come and worship God with us. ///

If you read Genesis 18, you find a story where God decided to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah where homosexuality was practiced openly and everywhere. And Abraham pleaded with God so that God wouldn’t destroy those cities.
Why did Abrahma plead with God? Because his nephew, Lot, was living in those cities.
So, Abraham pleaded with God asking a very important question: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked?” (Genesis 18:23) Continue reading Your Census, not theirs, that Matters!
I love to dream. If I don’t have anything to do, I go to the nearest park, walk and dream. And if you ask me one of my favorite dreams, I will say, “Dreaming about how to tell young girls and young men the biblical truth I know about our sexuality.” Continue reading Chosen Girls for Such a Time As This – (CG-STAT)
It’s been forever since we ran any competition on this page. Well, let’s do it today.
So, here is how you can take part in the game:
First, you have to read my book to play the game.
Second, you need a nice camera to take a picture of you and the copy of my book on your hand (you can look at the June 14 post on this page to have an idea). Continue reading A Game for a Prize
I was seeing someone off at the airport like eight years ago. Then I met one guy who got married like a month ago. So, I asked him about his honeymoon and how marriage had been treating him so far.
While he was telling me about his wife and all, one gorgeous woman came down the escalator we were standing next to. I looked at her and she was pretty. Of course, he stopped talking and gave her a long look. Then I waited until he was done staring; but I was standing there wishing he wouldn’t turn to follow her after she passed us. Continue reading “Are you asking me to stop being a human being?”
Sunday is the first day of the week. I know, for a long time, I thought Monday was the first day of the week. Some people say that Saturday is actually the first day of the week since Saturday is actually the original Sabbath according to Jews.
Well, I think this is one of the issues we shouldn’t divide over. And when people try to argue saying Saturday or Sunday is the Sabbath, I usually say, “Whatever works for you is fine with me.” I mean after all Sabbath “was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” (Mark 2:27) Continue reading The First Day of the Week
Here is the last Sunday morning first service. I can’t tell you how secure and safe I feel to teach at the presence of my beloved husband!
I was overwhelmed by the truth while I was speaking! So, it is my prayer for all of you that God overwhelms you with His Truth! Amen! ///
When I received the shipment from my publisher, I opened the first box and fell on the floor. It was like a childbirth kind of experience. I took out one book, kissed it many times and I wanted to cry but at the same time I wanted to shout and laugh! I held my book tightly close to my heart and fell before my God and my Lord who saw me through the tough road of writing a book. It was a long and at times very trying journey but through it all, God stood with me saying, “Fixed your eyes on Me and keep going!” Continue reading “Beyond the Fairy Tale” – Book Trailer!
