About me

A husband of a beautiful wife and a father of three naughty kids, Jonel works five days a week and spends his rest days with his growing Christian family. He shares his experiences and thought about parenting, work life, Christianity, and many other topics under the sun.

As a staunch Christian, truth is in his veins and despises anything that is fake. He sees Christ in the Eucharist, in the Church, and in the poor.
