My name is Kezia (pronounced “Ke-sha”). I live in Krabi, Thailand with my husband, Jason, where we serve alongside each other in the ministry under Sowers International (www.sower.org).
I am originally from the Philippines (born and raised), but I left and went to North Carolina in my mid-twenties. I met my husband in China on my first summer mission trip. During that time, he was a full-time missionary in Digos (Philippines), a city about an hour away from my hometown. Even after being married for almost 6 years, I still think it’s funny that we exchanged countries and met in Beijing. God definitely has a good sense of humor.
I am a teacher with over a decade of teaching experience in formal and informal classroom settings in the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States. I currently teach at the Sowers language school. And yes, I love teaching!
I can’t swim but I love to be near any body of water. I feel particularly calm when it rains; I have an uncommon delight for it.
My mom (who has not read the Bible before naming us) named me and my sister after two of Job’s new daughters (Job 42:14).
14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.
– Job 42:14
So we are also sisters in the Bible. Pretty awesome, right?! I believe that our mom naming us the way she did was God speaking to us and telling us, “You are My daughters.” Writing about it makes me want to wildly dance in elation realizing how He had us in mind even before we were born.
I am super humbled that you checked out my blog. I know there are many voices out there fighting for your time and your attention. Glad that you could be here. This minuscule space in the vast internet world is my way of sharing what God has taught me over the years, how He grew me out of my decent life and brought me to my knees, and how He is continuing to grow me out of it as I continue to pursue Him daily. I believe that He has called us to live powerful lives in the Holy Spirit and to not be satisfied with a shallow relationship with Jesus but to desire to dig deeper and to know Him more. We are to walk with Jesus and to pursue to be like Him each day. I hope to encourage you in your walk as I write about my weaknesses made perfect in the strength of God.
I would love to have a conversation with you, so don’t hesitate to comment, to ask questions, or to email me for a prayer request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish I could sit across you right now to talk about Jesus and how sweet life is with Him over a cup of coffee!
In Our Messiah’s Love,
