My personal history begins below: I hope you enjoy ☺️

I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, and came to study Marriage and Family Therapy in Texas when I was in my mid-twenties. I am the youngest of seven siblings, grew up in a lower-class, conservative Presbyterian, and traditional Korean home.

My favorite part of my introduction is about me as a simple, ordinary, and common women. I love to read, write, doodle, walk around the waterside, drink ☕️ and tea 🍵 . I also love to play 🏀 , 🎾 , 🏊‍♀️ , and doing nothing when I get busy with doing all of these. Listening to rain drop is my favorite sound, which take me into my early childhood. I used to wake up because of rain 🌧, which reminds me of poverty, nature, and resilience. I felt “rich” on those rainy days even though my family struggled financially and my house was “a bit” falling apart 😆.

I’m a curious person in my nature, and it gets me into trouble at times. Oh, well, that is why I am here in the U.S. so it is all good : ) Someday, I love to travel around the world as a ⛺️-maker. (see 1 below) One of my final vision before the end of my day on this earth is to build a retreat center by the river on the hillside for the poor, the wounded, and the hurt for free. I “sort of” can not do that at the present moment and for a while. However, I am a visionary and dreamer who continues to strive until I get where I need to be.

Therefore, in the meantime until I get to my future retreat center, I try out various types of recipes from all over the world and 🖼 and craft projects instead. It still serves the purpose for my life to live well for me and others on behalf of my God.

Thank you for visiting. I hope to see you again soon!

In peace.

김 천신 배상
(Kim Chun Shin Bae Sang)
(see 2 below for spiritually embedded meaning for indigenous Korean, “Bae Sang,” which is similar to “sincerely”)

  1. Tentmaking, in general, refers to the activities of any Christian who, while dedicating him or herself to the ministry of the Gospel, receives little or no pay for Church work, but performs other (“tentmaking”) jobs to provide support. Specifically, tentmaking can also refer to a method of international Christian evangelism in which missionaries support themselves by working full-time in the marketplace with their skills and education, instead of receiving financial support from a Church. The term comes from the fact that the apostle Paul supported himself by making tents while living and preaching in Corinthians (Acts 18:3) (from Wikipedia)
  2. In standard communication, when writing letters to seniors, write ‘[your full name] 배상(拜上)(Bae Sang, Chinese Korean word, equivalent to indigenious Korean, 올림 (ol lim)’ in the signature column. Also, when sending to the same-year ship, ‘[your first name, in general] 드림 (dream, yes same pronoucination with dream in English!😁Korean folks has plenty of “dreams” 😂’) was used, and ‘[your name] 씀 (Seom, indigenous Korean)’ was written to the lower one. Also, the word 배상(拜上)(Bae Sang, equivalent English meaning for ‘compensation’ )is sometimes used to mean ‘to bow up,’ which was used mainly in polite letters and is not used much today.
