Technology Addiction

By Dora Liu

I thought I am pretty good at not checking my phone..until I took the challenge not to use my phone for 12 hours…I realized how addictive I was with my phone— it just immersed in everything in my life and I  need it so much. It just feel like, I couldn’t live without my phone. […]

A day without electronics

By xshen

One of ISEED classes in June is about “transition” as the program draws near to end. Our instructor gave us a homework, to spend a day without using electronics in order to to challenge our self-discipline. In the beginning, I was anxious and reluctant to do this homework because I realize I couldn’t depend on […]

“Total surrendering”

By vkirezi

“Total surrendering” After taking a class on transitioning into careers, talking about grit and discipline, our instructor (a former ISEEDer, yay!) suggested that we take 12 hours without technology. At first it sounded very difficult, especially that I love listening to music. During that 12-hour period, one of the things I spent most time on […]

Relationships, relationships, relationships.

By vkirezi

Relationships, relationships, relationships As I was reflecting on my discipleship year, in preparation for the end of ISEED presentation, I realized that learning about importance of relationships in ministry was a big take away. One of the main reasons is that it is very important if we want people to feel welcome, cared for, to […]

Some feeling about reaching out

By Junshuo Yang

I used to walk on a beach in Panama City, Florida at night. The wind was a little bit chill.  I felt cool but did not care. Because I was talking to Him. Suddenly, I stopped. I noticed the waves. They were loud. They were strong. I ignored them for a long time. Why? Because […]

My path to faith

By Sheng Guo

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.”           — Matthew 7:7 I grew up in China, the authority of which promotes atheism. My parents are ancestor worshipers and occasionally go to the Buddhist temples to make a […]

I Want to See Him

By Dora Liu

“Have you ever missed someone so much that it made you cry?” “Yes…Jesus… I often think of him and it often brings me in tears..” The beginning of the month was really tough for my body. My schedule messed up so much because of the staying home order. And whenever I don’t rest well, I […]
