Our Future

This pic is getting printed and placed into a frame! It really gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling to see the youth contributing to our church. I’m overflowing with gratitude that my son, Kainoa, softened his heart and went from being a full blown introvert and atheist, to serving the Lord and being so open to learning new things. He went from wanting to be apart of the worship team and learning piano, to learning how to be the audio guy and manning the soundboard, and now he’s learning how  ...

Weekend Vibes

Such a nice weekend with the kids and Kame’i. Since we’ve started going to church consistently and serving, our lives have made a huge shirt. I thought by doing this we would be drained — energetically & financially and also never have time for our family. I was totally wrong. I feel completely fulfilled an look forward to our weekends, even with all the extra driving during the week, late evenings at church, will still manage to put gas in our car (living paycheck to paycheck off  ...

What Happens in Vegas

Late post but this weekend was family filled. My dad came to visit, we celebrated my nephews birthday and had a BBQ with friends and family at Tahiti Village for Labor Day. Mahalo Winnie and Charlie for inviting us! It was so much fun I forgot to make videos. I have a few I’ll share here from my story. Wish I took more so you could see the pool and the lazy river.

When You Pray for Bae

Nothing more attractive than a big, strong man submitting to our Creator by pushing aside his ego, opening up the Bible and learning more about how he can be a better version of himself through the Word. S I D E B A R: Remember that Bible I bought the other day? I felt called to give it to The Beefcake last night — and he was actually open to accepting it. Mahalo ke Akua for softening his heart.

#thankmelater

Last week Friday, I gifted myself a new bible. I wanted a different version and also something I wouldn’t be too upset for ‘ruining’ because I wanted to take notes in this bible and mark it up. I can’t get myself to do that with my She Reads Truth Bible because it was a little pricey. So I go to Barnes & Noble’s, find an inexpensive Bible and when I get home, I don’t even feel drawn to it. I don’t know what that was about. I totally thought I  ...

Peace Out, Comfort Zone!

I’ve been dabbling in graphic/web design and video editing for about 15 years and have felt a strong pull to contribute to my church, New Hope Las Vegas, for the past week or so.  I’m not sure why, but and I kept putting it off and today I finally decided to stop procrastinating and step out of my comfort zone by serving God through the Impact Media Ministry. Now that my oldest son is a part of the Youth Worship Team, I spend a lot more time at our church so I might as well do something  ...

Bless Up!

I wanted to take a moment to congratulate my oldest son (far right in this pic) for disrespecting his comfort zone this month. 1. He made some huge spiritual leaps and went on a camping trip with our church’s youth ministry. He came back home a brand new person and I want to thank @rexmariano, @kama_paulo, @jx3_always, Little Bam, @Elijah_Tialavea & @relentless_youth for pouring gasoline all over his soul and lighting it on FIYAH — in the best possible way. The love and light you all  ...
