Hello, readers! My name is Jonel and I go by an alias “The Praying Lensman” which is also the name of my blog. “Praying” because I believe in one, almighty, and munificent God. “Lensman” because I capture photos and short videos as a hobby.

Thus, I will be blogging about parenting, work life, Christianity, and other topics under the sun.
