When my husband John and I really grow up, I hope we’re like our maternal grandparents.

On his side, MeMe and PawPaw shared 65 years of life and marriage together– raising four children in Louisville, Kentucky – who all went on to meaningfully serve Christ and kin in academia, business, and missions.   (more…)

Three little sisters from the neighborhood sit in a row beside me, stealing glances at me during worship. When I clap, they clap. When I look down to smile at them, they smile back at me. When I turn my attention to the worship leader and the lyrics on the screen, they try to do the same, but I can feel the gaze of the youngest one, still on me. (more…)

One of our strategies as campus ministers of AACF (Asian American Christian Fellowship)  is to raise up men and women to serve God by serving their peers while they are in college.  But after years of releasing students into life after college, I soon began to ask, What happens after they graduate?  How do they continue in leadership, especially the women(more…)

Hello everyone!

We are looking to expand our blog into new territory by featuring a diversity of voices and faces of evangelical Asian American women in leadership.  With so few Asian American women in leadership, it’s easy to forget that there is more than one way to be an Asian American woman leader, and it’s easy to dismiss oneself as a leader just because you don’t fit into the few models that are clearly visible.

Thus, we are calling all of you to consider helping us to diversify our blog in the following ways: (more…)

I recently saw the movie Waiting For Superman in which there were brief clips of Michelle Rhee, chancellor of the District of Columbia Public Schools system of Washington, D.C.  I had heard of her controversial leadership in educational reform, but I had never seen her face.  Whether I agree with her position on education, there was one thing I was sure of — after watching her in action in those brief movie clips, taking on leadership as an Asian American woman in a challenging multi-ethnic arena, I found myself feeling incredibly empowered and encouraged.  While I have no aspirations to become a chancellor of a public school system, all of sudden it wasn’t as hard to picture myself as one.
