Hi!

I’m Melinda. I’m a former startup entrepreneur, former free-thinker; now a church worker, and a believer of God.

This blog is about my thoughts on knowing God. And navigating through life with its potholes, pressure, pain, pleasure—being encouraged with the hope that is anchored on Him.


I typically write one to two times a week to give my contemplative thoughts a home.

And then I write because of you. The you who resonates not only with the content of my writing but the heart of it. The you who may say, “someone gets me.” A struggle shared is a heart encouraged. And I’m glad you are here.

A little bit about me

I’m a wife to a wonderful and kind husband and a step-mum to a teen.

Through my earlier years in life, I pursued happiness, money, and significance—never satiated. Independent, self-sufficient, driven, and egoistic. Yes, yes, I do have friends, I’m not that terrible, please.

As life would have it, life got hard, like hell kinda hard. It got to the point where I have all the fight sucked out of me, and I knew I couldn’t do life on my own anymore. So, I searched, I questioned about life (loads of them)…and I found God.


I learnt that there is a God.

By me denying His existence does not change the fact that there is a God.
A God who is the Creator of the universe.
A God who loves me for who I am, unconditionally. Someone who I don’t need to strive to be loved. Someone who has forgiven my past and present wrongs.
A God who is alive and I can have an on-going relationship with. Someone who hears me, and I can hear when I quiet down in my heart. Someone who I can totally depend on.
A God of miracles and healings!

So, I pursue God. To love Him.


My best decision ever.

And that is the best decision I’ve made in my life.
The search for who I am, what’s my purpose in life, and the meaning of life—found, when I found Christ.

I hope this blog inspires you to live life like heaven is on earth—
by knowing God
never losing hope
being kind to yourself and
passing-it-on in being kind to others through your words and deeds.

If it has encouraged you, please share this blog and encourage others.

Yours truly,
Mel
