This week I thought that I would share some of my expert tips on that all important station in life, fatherhood. There are plenty of blogs out there that will tell you how to be a better dad by doing things like hugging your kids more and using positive reinforcement. My purpose in this instance […]
The last two months have been some of the most difficult since we moved to Scotland. It is difficult to articulate exactly how frustrating these times have been in a blog post without sounding as if I am depressed or complaining. Neither of these is the case, yet times have been difficult all the same. […]
“Your F(f)ather loves you very much.” These words have been ringing in my heart for the past week. The last few days I attended a Chinese Missions Convention in San Diego, where there were over 3,000 people ready to hear about the different ways God is working throughout the world. Although I’m Filipino (and actually […]
Next week marks two years in Scotland for the Carroll family. It’s been a time of ups and downs and many changes in lifestyle while we have been here. The family is really settling in well and Aberdeen has become home (at least for now). When we left our boys were little ages 5, 7, […]
My husband, Daryl, and I asked our friend and fellow blogger Grace Sangalang to craft the following interview questions for us. Basically, we wanted a way to tell you more about our upcoming family shifts (happening this week!) and this seemed a good way to do it. We’re about to put into effect what we […]

I recently faced a Dad-moment that I had been dreading for a while. It’s one of those times where your son faces his first major disappointment in life. So far my oldest son Ethan had led a somewhat charmed existence. He’s the one that: wins the giant Lego set in the church raffle, gets picked […]
Being a father of boys is difficult. Sure there are the annoying things: having to listen to the song “What Does a Fox Say?” over and over, constantly reminding them the living room is not the place to perfect their football Brazilian Flick, having to explain why it is inappropriate to have their hands down […]
In my quest to uncover Philo of Alexander’s thought concerning the education of young people (my PhD Thesis topic), I found some interesting things in Aristotle’s Politics I thought I would share. Aristotle thought the soul had two parts. The first was the irrational (αλογον) part. The second the rational (λογον) part. His idea was that the irrational part […]
I celebrated my 26th birthday this last Saturday. And, though I am a little freaked out by the fact that I am now officially closer to 30 than to 20, on the whole I can only feel a deep sense of thankfulness: I am thankful to be 26, to have lived another year in the […]
