Sharing my faith and my life one day at a time.


Hi there! My name is Samantha. You can call me that or you can call me Sam or Sammy. I welcome all versions but Sammy is definitely my favorite.

I was born on February 25th in 1976 in Manila, Philippines. I spent the first 34 years of my life there.

I work with children because of my deep heart for them.  I love them all -- chubby, skinny, sad, happy, shy, sassy, spunky, sweet, and everything in between! I believe being with them keeps me more accountable and honest to God.

I spend the rest of my time serving with my husband: leading a church on Sundays, and helping him demonstrate Jesus to many young people who desperately need Him.

I love books, writing, photography, technology, decorating, good food, travel, and beauty products. Most of all, I love being a wife!

I also have a unquenchable passion the next generation. I love helping my husband in what he has been called to do with the city of Omaha.

Once again, I feel incredibly blessed that I have many opportunities to do what I love for a living.

I find absolute joy in talking about my faith and sharing it with you every day.

I have been through so much. Today, I know that my story has a purpose.

This means there that through it all there is one thing I absolutely know for sure today: I am at a peaceful place in my life where I feel very secure with who I am in Jesus Christ and what He has done for me. The greatest thing that has ever happened to me is finding God again after years of knowing He exists but never really fully acknowledging His love.

His grace rescued me and I am alive because of it.

Therefore, that sense of security comes from Him 100% and not on my own strength.

I am now resting in Him and everything else is falling into place. On days that I feel like it isn't -- it's still okay with me because I know His ways are much higher than my ways.

I am blessed to have met a man who is an everyday reminder of God's love for me. I have always wanted someone who is deeply in love with Jesus and I am in awe that God filled the desires of my heart.

I have a family who has raised me well and given me everything I need and much more. I love them so much and will do anything for them.

I am not perfect. I know life isn't either. But I choose to be happy and grateful not because I am awesome (trust me, I am not!) but because of who He is and what He has done for me. God continues to supply all the joy and grace to live my life with the purpose He has called me to.

Do you want to more what it is like to walk with Him? I invite you to get a glimpse of my imperfect life serving a perfect God. Be blessed today!
