OMF Lit At MIBF 2017

I have bought a few of my favorite books from OMF Literature, such as All The Places To Go (John Ortberg) and Passion (Louie Giglio). The majority of the books I have I have won through various OMF online contests!

You play a huge part in my bookworm journey. Indeed, you’ve awakened the bookworm in me some ten years ago! Thank you so much, OMF! ❤


For the past years, I’ve been using books from OMF Literature for both our weekly Youth Group Bible Study gatherings and Kids’ JAM School (JCEF Church’s Children’s Ministry).


We have already finished the book Mga Gabay Sa Pag-aaral Ng Biblia (Aklat 1) by Bertram Lim, which I won from an OMF online contest a few years ago. We’re now using Bible Study Guides (Volume 3) by the same author for our Youth Group Bible Study gatherings.


It’s going to be my second time to attend the Manila International Book Fair this 2017, and I couldn’t be any more excited! Yiiiiiiiha! 😍


The following promos and books heighten my excitement! Check them out!

My Bookworm Journey

Standard

I came to know Omf Literature when I was 3 years into college, though I don’t remember now exactly what brought me to their store at Boni Avenue. Most likely, the Left Behind series, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye being on sale was what drew me to the place. At the time, I could buy only a book or two at once, so I’ve had to keep coming back to the store until I almost completed the series.  Then, a friend gave me a copy of Philip Yancey’s “What’s So Amazing About Grace?” which has become one of my favorites. Later on, I found out that it was also published by OMF. That, I think, jump-started my bookworm journey.  I’ve discovered and got fond of various authors and their works over time. Now, I’m a certified bibliophile—a staggering fact, which my mother and brother are having a difficult time to accept to this day.

Save for 5 books, all of these are some of the prizes I’ve won through OMF’s online contests via their Facebook page. Sometimes, I still can’t believe they could be as generous as they’ve been through the years. I still get excited whenever they put up a new contest or raffle, which they often do; so do yourself a favor by visiting their Facebook page every once in a while. You’re welcome!

 

Book Review: Found: Letters on Love, Life, and God

Standard

screenshot_2017-02-21-16-03-56-1-2I can’t be more grateful to have read this amazing book—Found: Letters on Love, Life, and God—just in time for Love Month! How sweet it is to be reading letters these days…

Reading the book felt like having a face-to-face conversation with the author. All throughout the read, it seemed like the author knew me personally as she’s gone through the same experiences I had. I’ve been encouraged and reminded of how much God loves me and how great and enough that love is. This made me realize that most of the disciplines that I have now are healthy, although I still need to work on some.

I love how she plays with words; Ms. Isa Garcia is a certified wordsmith! Reading the book made me want to meet the author in the near future as we have a lot of things in common—we share a lot of the same sentiments. I’m thankful for the author’s courage to share her heart with us, readers.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Love is the Man who takes the blame, who feels the whip on His battered back, and carries a wooden beam. He climbs the hill, and is nailed to the cross even though he did no wrong, all because of love.”


“Your heart’s not glass. It’s made of far better and tougher stuff.”

–> This one’s for those who are afraid to love again.

“Going along with someone is to know that to share love — no matter how brief or how long the moment — is always a privilege. The space we get to love somebody is always just enough.”

–> This reminded me to savor every moment.

“So many of the things you say Yes to in life will determine who you are and where you’ll end up. Your Yes is far too sacred to be squandered.”

–> This is something we should be reminding ourselves of every once in a while.

“When you leave, you begin to understand the worth of what you have walked away from.”

“I want to be sought after for the way that I love, for my capacity to inspire, for a big faith.”


“Truth is just that: The thing that stands tall even after everything else has crumbled away.”

–> I love how she defines truth in this book.


The calligraphy artworks included in the book are a breath of fresh air—wow! Check them out!
