it’s not just a unicorn. it’s a movement.

Any unicorn lovers amongst my blog readers?

Several weeks ago, we launched our holiday campaign called One Less Gift. It’s a simple invitation – that in lieu of some of the random (or mindful) gifts we give to our friends and family- to instead, make a donation in their name and send them one of our comical e-cards and make a donation in their name.

One of the e-cards pokes fun at the unicorn.

I had no idea how popular the unicorns were in our larger pop culture. Advocates, unicorn lovers, groupies, and believers of the unicorn came out of nowhere to defend the magic of the unicorn.

Want evidence?

Unicorn advocates on Twitter:

A real unicorn coffee cup.

I also received this unicorn coffee mug as a gift (with clean water in it). The amazing thing: She actually owned and used it regularly. It’s a beauty and now become my daily coffee mug.

And how about this beauty?

My friends over at MiiR Bottles made this exclusive Unicorn 800ml water bottle. It’s a one of a kind collector’s item and I’m hoping some Unicorn Lover that’s reading this blog might be willing to pay $500 for it.

Isn’t it beautiful? Any takers?

Truly amazing.

It’s not just a unicorn. It’s a movement.

Okay, that’s another shot at the “It’s not just a tree. It’s a movement” nonsense. But seriously, if you’re looking to send someone a fun and meaningful gift during the last few hours before Christmas, consider sending them an E-Card that fights poverty. Here’s how it works:

  • Visit the site and pick one of the One Less Gift e-cards
  • You choose an amount you want to donate in someone’s name.
  • Insert their name, email and send them an e-card.

100% of your donation (minus credit card fees) go to empower those living in extreme poverty.

    Gave this to all the volunteers in our youth group. First time I’ve given a gift like this, and it was a big hit! God bless.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers Wow. So proud of our 13 year-old son. When he began the trumpet in middle school, you could say it was a little painful. But this cat has got some groove. He's taught himself the piano, guitar, and really come along on the trumpet.

Parents: Fret not if you have no musical skills. I am living proof that musical genes or the lack thereof are not passed on. #AsianMilesDavis
