Over the past several years, my vocational direction has become more and more clear.  I know I want to go into pastoral ministry of some kind.  I also know that I have a heart to help other Asian American women in ministry leadership, especially those who may be called to be a pastor, as I believe I have been.  (more…)

Restless for over four years, I had been seeking a career or life change. However, the Lord kept on telling me to “wait for him.”  Being a person who is used to making decisions and being proactive, it was difficult to wait for him instead of taking matters in my own hands. (more…)

I came back home and asked God to give me assurance and confidence because I didn’t have the ability to reestablish a bank on the verge of bankruptcy.  I thought to myself, If this is God’s call, then God will provide all the resources and capital to turn the bank around. (more…)

After the economic crash in 2008, lots of banks suffered from the financial crisis – in particular, facing challenges with the deterioration of credit.  While I was in a better condition at Nara Bank compared to other banks, the financial turmoil triggered internal politics that led me to quit my position as the President and CEO.  I felt that God was telling me, “Your time is up.”  Without any hesitation and without planning, I resigned.  The minute I did, I felt so relieved, and peace and joy came into my heart.  I knew it was God’s call.  For two years, in fact, I had been praying to God to show me how to serve God after my time in the banking business.

If you had asked me five years ago what I would be doing in five year’s time, I would have given you a blank, helpless look. What I did know was that I was coming to a crossroads and a choice had to be made. My passion was for the Church but my paycheck came from my day job. (more…)

Lately I’ve just been learning a lot about what it means to be obedient in my work.  I feel like God has called me to my finance job, but all the things that I would identify myself as – Asian, female, introvert, mother, and Christian – make me feel like a fish out of water in my industry.  (more…)

Near the end of seminary, I started asking myself, “What am I going to do when I graduate?”  In the late 1980s, there weren’t any conservative evangelical Chinese churches that I knew of that were ordaining women.  (more…)

My mother became a Christian a year before I was born and desired to offer me to God.  Her prayer was simple, “Lord, if this baby comes out healthy, I’d like to dedicate it to you.”  She shared this with me throughout my years growing up and even though I didn’t fully understand what it meant to be dedicated to the Lord, it felt good and gave me a sense of purpose.  In high school, feeling like I didn’t have a choice about my future felt a bit alarming.  My mother wanted me to go to a Bible college, but I bucked at the thought and applied to Ivy League colleges. To console herself, my mother told me that even if I didn’t go into ministry, if I made a lot of money, I could at least tithe to the church. (more…)
