My little gift to the world


Looking at my time now, the time is 5:00 pm February 18.

In my home country, it’s 12:00 am on 19th already. Here, it’s still 7 hours before 18th ends. In south Korea, it’s 8:00am February 19th.

I still marvel at the variation in time around this big world. While some are pulling the bed covers off to start a new day, some people oceans apart, are still neck deep into the previous day’s work. Country to country, even  state to state, time varies.

But the one thing that is sure is: each person has a full day – of 24 hours. And each minute counts.

I am 24 today (or will 7 hours from now), but in my journal, I like to count my years in days. Each day, I look at my planets (the priorities I have drawn as planets around God, who serves as the SUN) and I evaluate, making sure that I am in step with God’s purpose for my life in all aspects.

Then I get better the next day.

Today, as I take on a new year, I leave this with you to mull over – 

Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ.

Wake up from your sleep,
Climb out of your coffins;
Christ will show you the light!

So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!

Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants.

from Ephesians 5:11-17 (message)


To the meat of the matter: My little gift to the world

Since 2014 when the book was released, I’ve had opportunity to share more than 1,000 copies (of the 2,000 copies of Donut produced) with young people freely and I’ve been privileged to hear testimonies.

Few days ago, I promised to release a free e-book format of my first published book, Donut today. Since the hard copy is free, why not make the e-book available so that any one who wants to read can access. Why not?

Well, I wasn’t hoarding it.

I just didn’t figure how to compress 80MB pdf file to a smaller size until recently. You see, knowledge is power. I was able to make an e-book format that is a little more than 7MB, so you can download without using up too much data.

So here it is.

All you need to do is to click this link to start downloading.

And if you do not mind, do me a little favour by letting me know, after you read it, how how the book blessed you or just what you think about it. Click here to fill a Google Form. Other inquiries can be forwarded to my email.

As you go on in life, remember “Count each day because each day counts.”

It’s my day today,
