Reading is a Blessing

Post written by Raymund Tamayo


In general, I think Filipinos are not readers. Why? Authors and writers in this country are hardly recognized and supported.

Filipinos would rather listen to the radio or watch TV more, than read.

Unfortunately, we tend to listen to and watch unproductive shows.

We need more knowledge on how to live a better life, but what do most of us do? Instead of consuming media that will give us and our family the knowledge, we choose those that give us nothing.

The Lost Art of Listening

Post written by Raymund and Denielle Tamayo

When it comes to communication, there are two kinds of people – one who loves to talk, and one who loves to listen. And we know which one is more fun to be with.

We seldom think of encouragement as a gift, maybe because it can’t be bought as it is not a material thing. Others don’t see it as something to treasure because they thought it doesn’t cost a thing. In reality, it’s quite the opposite.

Encouragement is actually very rare because it is seldom given, and it is valuable because it is so meaningful to the recipient. Encouragement makes the perfect gift for a loved one. Here are reasons why:

Focus on the Creator

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

COSMOS. Source:

The world in which we live in is one of the greatest proofs for the existence of God. The very fact that the universe exists at all point to a Creator.

Even the most cynical scientist does not believe that everything around us came from nothing.

There had to be a beginning. And if there was a beginning, there had to be Someone to begin everything.
