A Writing Ministry


I had no idea I had a "writing" ministry, but apparently, Joseph, my Bible teacher, thought so.

He told me this, over two weeks ago.

All I know is that when "prompted" by the Holy Spirit, I'd find myself writing, and writing, and writing.

So much so, that Spirit and I wrote 22 books on spiritual warfare in 36 days, on 24 November 2019 until 29 December 2019, as China was having the virus problem.

Spirit and I also wrote two more books on Jesus (non-fiction this time) after New Year.

Strangely enough, these books revealed the dreams and visions I'd been having for decades, which eerily echoed what the world was about to go through before the end of 2019 -- and what it was going through, all along.

It was surely God's perfect timing that I become a baby Christian on 6 September 2019, as proper preparation for those books.

In those 22 books, I had created a 26-year-old character, SCRIBU, the dream warrior, and scribe to Spirit.

SCRIBU stands for "Scripture-based understanding".

In between, Spirit and I wrote many posts on prophecy, and Bible passages often ignored.

I never knew when the "prompt" to write would come, but when it did, I had to pay attention to it right away, for it was just proper I'd pay attention to the Holy Spirit, and the Scripture verses that needed to be shared in my articles.

And because I was a blogger, and internet marketer, I had the compulsion to share those prophecy posts, too.

Whether other marketers and readers cared, bought my books on Amazon, or paid attention, was of no immediate concern to me.

I was tasked to write, and I wrote.

They say you know if you really love your work, if you would do it, whether anyone cared to listen to you or to "buy" your idea, product, or service.

Well, I was in the service of the LORD.

I loved everything I was doing for Him.

It was the most enjoyable, unpaid work of my life!

The world wasn't paying me for my services.

All I do was free, as it alighted upon my heart, as prompted to write, and to share.

Joseph may just be right.

I may have a writing ministry.

Still, the Lord Jesus must be the focus:


"He must increase, but I must decrease."

John 3:30 (King James Version)

I Used To Wear Many Hats Once


Funny, that's the only photo of me wearing a hat, as I playfully tried one on at some work I used to do a couple of years ago, or so.

But it's also true I'd be what they'd call, wearing "many hats", for I had dozens of various jobs in writing, design, fashion, marketing, communications, journalism, and entrepreneurship.

I also taught beginner's piano at one point 17 years ago.

My resume (which I try not to write anymore), is filled with odds and ends of sometimes totally unrelated stuff compared to what I first took up in college -- Architecture.

But that's how God created me, a compendium of sorts.

I felt weird enough as it was, but I also felt surely, God had a plan for His quirky child.

I reasoned, He didn't give me all this stuff to do, and develop, for no reason at all.

I truly felt like a square peg, in a round hole, when I see how all seem to have their act together, pursuing only one profession, and all that.

Some days, I'd cry inside my heart, and ask God, what am I really meant to do?

Most days, He was quiet.

Until that fateful day on 6 September 2019, a day before my birthday, when I told myself, I've got to get my act together, and come up with something solid.

That was probably what God was waiting for -- total surrender -- and He led me to two important videos from Dr. David R. Reagan, about how the rebellious nation, America, was "begging for destruction".

Did he have any idea how prophetic his videos were?

And what did America have to do with me?

Nevertheless, those two powerful videos paved the way for my becoming a born-again Christian, as if my soul knew it was "time", and no later. 

That also signaled the end of the odd jobs, here and there -- which I could do, and have done, anyway.

Now, I know there was a purpose to all that exhaustive exercise.

It was part of my "training".

No one cared if I didn't have the qualifications or education -- like photojournalism -- and everything else.

They just knew I was an eager character, with eyes and heart dancing, for stuff to do.

One look at my eyes, and they knew I could do anything I set my mind to do.

So, an English editor coached me very briefly how to use a camera, and in that same afternoon, I was covering a USO ball, with hundreds of American servicemen at the U.S. Embassy in Manila.

I don't know how I got another job earlier than that, with a German engineer, and his Filipino assistant.

I was draftswoman then, and was using the latest drawing table. You know how advanced Germans and Taiwanese are, and this was a semi-electronics firm at the Export Processing Zone Authority in Baguio City where I lived.

I left after a couple of weeks, as I preferred being in the "assembly" area with everyone else, but thing is, I chatted too much, and that was a no-no.

I loved asking how people were.

I preferred being with them, than being shut up in a tiny office with the German engineer and his Filipino assistant, with a cake the former brought, and forgot to share. He was too busy working, and so should I.

That very building -- among many others -- was destroyed completely during the infamous 16 July 1990 earthquake that hit Luzon, Philippines.

Again, God had planted me a bit, then "plucked" me out, before anything happened to his eager, and adventurous, daughter.

Apparently, He had many other plans for me, and that's a very long story, but since I'm a writer, I may just write about it sometime in the near future.

So, it's very true, I did wear many hats at work, and at home.

I was probably the strangest creature of all.

And no one even knew the strange dreams and visions I was having since 1997, when I folded up all my shops in the big city, got a tiny row house in one of the nearby provinces, and sort of turned my back on the world.

I needed to heal away from the world, for even as my businesses were going strong, I was dying inside.

To this day, I'm still suffering financially from that "stepping back", as if the world was punishing me for doing so.

And now, after having written 22 books on spiritual warfare, and creating my young SCRIBU, the 26-year-old character who lived those decades-old dreams and visions I had, every piece of the puzzle began to finally fit.

How long I waited for it to become so!

But I always kept the faith that there was a purpose to my wearing so many hats, and learning so many things, and of course, God had always known that.

If you're wondering why your life is weird, why the world is weird, now I've come to know.

The Holy Spirit finally touched my tiny hat, and I was moved to do many new things in the service of the LORD.


"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."

John 14:26 (King James Version)

As mentioned earlier, that event occurred a day before my birthday, November of last year, so you can say, it was with my invitation that I got my life straightened out, once and for all.

God knew the time was ripe, and I was ready for His instructions.

Well, the "instruction" was to write, and write, and write.

I did feel, ages ago, that there were many books in my heart.

God held the key, and He finally "unlocked" it from my being. 

As I quietly wrote those 22 books, in a span of 36 days, all through November, Christmas, and close to New Year of 2020, little did I know that what I dreamt once before, so many years ago, about three, worried molecular biologists, was actually already happening in China, and other parts of the world.

I've had so many crazy dreams and visions, the likes of which were similar to zombie films now. Is it a wonder I don't watch such movies, at all?

It was dark, and full of hidden meanings.

Soon as I started having those heavy dreams, I got myself a Carl Jung-inspired book on dream symbology, and began to understand the meaning of my dreams.

Again, God let me learn and experiment differently, as I even began selling books on esoteric subjects like alternative health, living, and thinking, at the big city's organic market, where I had a long table to display all those books and artifacts.

I love books and art, so things came naturally for me.

Of course, all those books were set aside completely, when I finally became a born-again Christian, and I understood these were not of Christ.

What a humbling discovery!

Jesus knew I longed to sit at His feet and learn EVERYTHING from Him.

When I finally became a born-again Christian on 6 September 2019, Jesus took charge of my education, and re-education.

I sense it was all part of that education, the stumbling, the failing, the falling, and being in that posh and corporate world, which I'm now writing about through those 22 books.

Testing the waters of my first love -- which was writing -- I joined a number of literary contests in December 2019, and was informed two of my works (amazingly, I forgot the bodies of work, as I was just writing, and writing, night and day, as the Spirit prompted me) may just be included in anthologies, and who knows if they may even win a prize?

My father, a brilliant surgeon and physician, dissuaded me from taking up Journalism, as he said there was no money in it.

He said I would break my back writing, so "commanded" I take up Architecture instead, as I loved to draw and paint as a child.

How about Archaeology?

Nope.

How about Sociology?

Nope.

How about Commerce?

Nope.

Surely, that was also part of God's plan, that I be asked to do something else that was not in my heart.

I can only imagine, it's probably to test how much I loved writing.

Folks, I can't not love writing.

I joked I had an Underwood typewriter when I was in my Mama's womb, and was typing away, night and day, with my mom hushing me every so often, as people needed to sleep.

I loved writing essays in High School, and I only needed to be given a word, just one word, and I'd be off writing.

My heart invented the word "keyword", before SEO folks used it in this digital age.

My heart was already churning much, even then.

But I had my limits.

To this day, given many opportunities to embrace Shakespeare, I have not, and I apologize.

My English teacher in High School would often look questioningly in my direction, to please "de-code" the Bard's words.

I was as clueless as my un-interested classmates.

Much later on, a mother asked I coach her autistic son about Shakespeare, but I had to leave for the U.S., and that saved me from having to do that, even as I bought a book on him, giving myself a chance to understand his Old English language.

As you can imagine, that book remained unopened throughout my trip.

Little did I know, I was to focus on the King James Version of the Bible, also Old English.

Ah, but that, my heart loved!

I only use the KJV for my Bible readings now.

As you can see, I can go on and on about those many hats I wore, the rich, varied experiences of my life and work, but like I said, it may end up in a book.

I write fast, and furiously.

I can't not be that way.

One word from Spirit, and I'm off!

All because it's from the WORD of God -- Jesus.

Now, no other words matter but His Word.

Perhaps, this was what Jesus was waiting for me to see, before my writing finally blossomed.

I needed the Living Water so I can blossom as a writer.

Such a beautiful thought!

I didn't even know I was going to write this piece, until I got up, and just did it.

I thank God for opening the doors to my heart, and finally allowing my writing to shine, and most importantly, it is in His service that I do so.

I am completely, and fully, in Jesus' service.

If you wish to see my 22 books (actually, 26) on Amazon, here's the link!

Thank you for being with me, and bearing with me.

GOD bless your kind heart!

What a journey!

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, I first started writing spiritual warfare short fiction late November 2019, and published my first book on 24 November 2019 at Amazon.

I found myself finishing the 22nd book by 29 December 2019, not really knowing that there was biological chaos growing in China, and other parts of the world.

That's very strange to reflect upon now.

I was tasked to keep busy, and write, while something was brewing in the world, even as I had dreamt an inkling of it here.

I had no idea I could write fiction, but Spirit had other ideas.

The stories -- based on my dreams and visions from decades ago -- were rich material for my books.

I had no idea they were going to be so relevant, especially with what's happening to the world today, right this very moment -- deadly virus and all.

All I know is I dreamt what I dreamt, wrote it all down, turned it over in my heart, and when I became a born-again Christian a day before my birthday last year, things started making sense.

Especially when I started reading the Bible.

Now, I don't feel so weird or strange anymore.

Now, I knew my dreams had a pattern, and I was probably being "alerted" to things that most people don't pay attention to.

Perhaps, I really did listen to the LORD.

Perhaps, I really did have a great desire to know EVERYTHING about Him.

Maybe, He saw all that, for He created me for a purpose, just as He created you for a purpose, and maybe my time to share all these with you, has come.

How can I say all my books came from the Holy Spirit?

Only because I wrote it in record time -- all 22 books in 36 days, and the thoughts and words would just flow.

Most importantly, all books are backed by Scripture.

I created SCRIBU, a fictional 26-year-old character who dreams the chief demon's schemes, to his great agitation.

How could she be in the know?

No one was supposed to know what he was up to.

How could she have known?

STONE, the chief warrior angel, and protector to SCRIBU, merely smiles knowingly.

This is the main theme of the 22 stories:


SCRIBU, the Dream Warrior, dreams,
SKAL, the Chief Demon, schemes,
STONE, the Chief Warrior Angel, protects, and
The SON, the Word of God, saves.

"6 STEPS TO JESUS" Book on Amazon


The Holy Spirit dunnit.

I had barely put out my 23rd book on Amazon, when, just by doing chores yesterday morning, and thinking about a previous book I started writing about Christ -- remaining unfinished -- the "idea" for a new title came.

Just like that.

Thus, the unfinished book was shelved by the Holy Spirit, for I had not finished it in one sitting (that's how we write our books), and gave me a new title to work on.

Long story short, the book above was created, now the 24th book in my Amazon file, and also the 2nd non-fiction book on Jesus.

By studying the Bible, and focusing on Jesus' words, I was able to identify six (6) instructions He had for discipleship in His ministry.

No, you don't have to take up Theology, for this is for everyone who wish to know Jesus and His invitation for us to follow Him.

I was so excited to write this book, and share it with you.

As expected, Amazon worked as fast in putting out my 24th book, of which I am extremely proud of, for the Introduction was easy to start, but true commitment in the cause of Christ was in the writing of the first chapter.

After that, all my index card notes served their purpose, and all chapters flowed easily.

But I can't quite get over the fact that the first chapter was the "deciding factor" in my own followership.

Once I got through that hurdle, everything was as good as done.

Please welcome my 24th book, "6 Steps to Jesus", now LIVE on Amazon!

You can read a sample of my writing from that Amazon page.

As always, thank you for being here!

Without you, where would a writer be?

"SERVANT OF SCRIPTURE" Book on Amazon


Please welcome my first Christian non-fiction book, "Servant of Scripture" book.

This is my 23rd book, after writing 22 other short fiction books (since 24 November 2019) on the SCRIBU series on spiritual warfare.

I knew that I'd be writing a non-fiction book this year.

I also knew that I had to write that 22nd book before the end of last year.

Everything in God's good timing, of course. 

He worked with what I had in my heart.

He knew I loved Him, have always loved Him, and eager to know EVERYTHING about Him.

All my books, since I became a born-again Christian four months ago, speak of God and Scripture.

I write according to how I understand Scripture, although Christ makes it plain to everyone what He means in His instructions and prophecies.

Somehow, a child-like heart like mine understands His parables and lessons.

As I've described "Servant of Scripture" on Amazon:


"Easy to read, easy to understand, backed by Scripture, this book will tell you why reading the Bible is important in this season of the end times. This book was inspired by God this morning. It is also my first book for 2020."

So, you're getting this book fresh, as I wrote it in one sitting just this morning, and had it published in the same morning.

That's how the Holy Spirit works in me, really firing me up to do the work that needs to be done, so I can share the Good News of the Gospel, with people who care to listen.

You can even read a sample of the book when you go to the Amazon page, so I won't hold you back now, and give you the link to that right here.

You can also find all 23 books and blog posts (from two blogs) on my Amazon author page.
