What’s In A Name?


Hello, Rea here!

I personally believe that our name has a meaning aptly for who we are. And the good news is we can actually create that meaning especially for us — as much as we create our own life. Through the years I tried to understand who I amย and it does change depending on what state I am at that moment. There were so many versions of me already and here are some.

On the first job Rea was


E-ffective and efficient

A-s well as a good learner


On living — again!

R-ising from the ashes

E-mpowering herself

A-cting really really strange


The latest as of this entry — hey I may be updated after hitting publish!

R-eveling in ordinarily awesome moments

E-ntrusting God with my life

A-cknowledging my brokenness


Why am I sharing the trivialities of REA?

Because this is a fun way to reacquaint with oneself!

Try it, the acronym thingy — share yourself here in the comment.

I know you have much to say about yourself so do it in paragraph for each letter!

It’s an honor to know you actually!

      T-heresa I never thought you are tongue-tied

      E-ncouraging others to accept the Savior.
