    Soul Mates

    A soulmate, for me, is someone whom you share coincidental similarities. Like you have the same birthday, you collect the same stuff, eat at the same place, drive the same car etc. I have known people who have met their soulmates and married them. Some didn't end up with them. I didn't end up with my soulmate, either.

    Muhammad and Jesus Contrasted

    I meant, reading like I did. I read it without adult guidance and it brought questions and doubts on my mind. Good thing I was a little older at the time and I was aware of how not to take the bible, literally. But then again, people have different ways to understand things. At an early age, influence has a huge impact on a child. Maybe they can read them when they're older. Anyway, how can you justify violence to a child?

    About fighting and self defense

    I think, there's nothing wrong with self-defense. You have to protect what God has given you, after all.

    How to Maintain a Happy Marriage

    There are a lot of ways to maintain a happy marriage. One thing is patience. There were numerous times with my husband that we argue about different things. Sometimes, in a fit of anger, you make irrational decisions. By practicing patience, I was able to find out that my husband was slowly doing the same too. Another factor is communication. Speak up and tell your husband what you feel in all honesty. At the same time, listen to what he would say too. Together, you try to work things out. Try to settle your differences. Lastly, always spend quality time together. Travel, go to church, eat at the table together. My father taught us to eat at the table together, as a family, so we can spend time and talk despite the busy days. A small amount of time can help so much in a relationship, what more if you make it bigger.

    Muhammad and Jesus Contrasted

    Yep, that's the Old Testament, all right. I used to read the book when I was 12 years old. I just decided, why not? It did contain a lot of violence, adultery, nudity, you name it. :( I'm not letting my kids read it like I did.

    Saying Grace?

    I always pray before every meal. I don't know, we were doing that since I was young so I do it even today. Sometimes, even a simple snack like chips or sodas from a store. I feel like every time we eat, aside from waking up in the morning, is a blessing.

    How do you beat stress?

    Me too. Movie Marathon all day. I try to turn off my phone because, for some reason, my ringtone makes me nervous. Sometimes, I go to quiet places like the beach, read books, and take pictures.

    Evolution Vs Creation

    You can't reconcile Evolution and Creation. It's Science and Religion, accordingly. Science will try to prove to create something out of nothing through our own capacity, as humans. In religion, you have faith in power, miracles and one God.

    True Christian

    Me too. Is there a definition for being a true Christian? All I know is, to be Christian is to be Christ-like, to be like Jesus.

    Traditional Hymns or Contemporary Music?

    I grew up singing Traditional Hymns and I would never exchange them for Contemporary Music. Sure, there are great new artists and compositions nowadays, but the memories I have that are attached with the old hymns can never be replaced. Old hymns are easier to remember and sing.
  11. Most of the children here are enrolled in Christian schools. These schools have strict regulations on anti-bullying or anti-abuse. One subject in school teaches them about good manners and right conduct. Younger students are not allowed to go out without their guardians with them, but it's okay if they are permitted by their parents/guardians or if they ride the school bus. I guess the problem starts when they grow older, as teenagers. This is when peer pressure comes in and would start making their own decisions. Socialization plays a big part in a child's development, but parents have no choice but to keep their child away from all the negative effects it can give.

    Do you believe in spanking?

    Too much spanking is not good. Parents should know the difference between discipline and abuse so that the child would understand them rather than hate them. But anyway, I've seen kids these days that are spoiled. In my country, some kids have gotten wiser. They know where to call and who to talk to if they feel abused even if they were not. I don't know whether to feel sad for the parents or not.

    How much time you spend online?

    I'm online, more or less, 12 hours a day. I use the internet for work. I receive and send emails, frequently. Social media has taken over my life that I sometimes find myself automatically logging on to it. Keeping myself busy keeps me off it. I can shut off everything from social media to apps, but the emails has to stay.

    How to know you are worshiping money?

    I usually take my family to places they have never been as a form of appreciation or reward. Traveling, for me, is my way of encouraging them to bond and spend quality time together. Does that count as luxury?

    How to know you are worshiping money?

    I don't know. I prioritize my family and I want to provide them a comfortable life. I don't try to live with luxury but I don't know if traveling is a luxury.
