And so it begins or rather, continues…
Life never stops. It just keeps going. It doesn’t even slow. In fact, it feels like it just ramps up.
When Minhee and I welcomed our first child, Jubilee, about 14 years ago, the one most consistent advice or comment we received from those who were older and wiser were these following words:
“Enjoy. Time really flies.”
We respectfully nodded. Again and again. Every time someone said that, we responded precociously:
“Yes, we know.” (Nod. Nod. And on to the next conversation)
But the truth is you never really know how fast time flies until you actually go through the seasons of time and life. You feelin’ me?

This is the most hilarious and visual parenting advice for you new parents.
For the first year of our new church, the only children were our two daughters [then 2-years-old and 1 month]. We’ve since been privileged with another kid [son] but the early years were difficult for our children because they really didn’t have anyone to hang out with at church.

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve had numerous births with more babies coming. So, I thought it would be pastorally wise to give these new and expectant parents [and blog visitors] some heartfelt parenting advice.

This past Sunday was one of the greatest days of my life. Minhee and I, along with our other two younger children, and the larger Quest family, witnessed the baptism of my oldest daughter, JC, who after much prayer, chose to make this public profession of her love and devotion to Jesus. Minhee and the kids came on stage along with others in JC’s class and I had the great joy as her father to baptize her.
It is really hard to put into words the emotions that Minhee and I experienced but in two words: Read the rest of this entry »
