I am a stay-at-home mom. I am married to a wonderful husband and have 2 very young boys. Home is a 84sq m HDB flat in Singapore with 3 common bedrooms, living room and kitchen. I am just a typical person, struggling through my marriage, then having children, juggling work, and finally deciding to give up my job for my family.
Before I was a stay home mom, I worked as an engineer for 5 years at an aerospace firm. I was trained in Mechanical Engineering specialized in Aerospace in a local university. It never occurred to me that I would one day be a mother, much less be a stay-at-home one! (It wasn’t that long ago, or so I felt, hehe, that I was still battling common teenage problems like identity crisis!) Fresh out of school and having offered my “dream” job, the future seemed so bright and full of possibilities and hope.
But God knows better. Albeit all the stupid mistakes and meaningless pursuits, God was gracious to me. He gave me a wonderful (but, not perfect) husband, and two lovely boys. Little did I know that this would totally changed my life. Desiring God’s blessings in my family, He has shown and helped me, slowly but surely, to lead the life I’ve always wanted as I surrendered to God…
About This Blog
Blogging is not very me. I have tried to blogged in my earlier years but never managed to maintain one because after a while I find it narcissistic and meaningless. Most of the time, I blogged only when I felt blue! Oh dear! I thought I was taking up precious cyberspace memory instead of achieving anything meaningful with the blog.
After I became a full time stay-at-home mom however, I came across many (men and women alike), wondering why I did so, how did I manage, what are my opinions on children, family, marriage etc. Similar to these friends, I wondered about others too. I have learnt a number of things in the process and I wish to share it as I found there are very limited literature having a Christ-centred one, especially in a Singapore context. My prayer is that it will set you thinking, reflect on your own life as it did mine, and ultimately make decision to yield to Christ in each small area of your life – One day at a time, one area at a time!
The centre of Christian faith is obedience to Christ. As the hymn goes, “Trust and Obey, there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, is to trust and obey.” May obedience to Christ help you to find the life you’ve always wanted.
