Kuan-Yin T Timothee, MBA, JD

Chispa Magazine writer, Kuan-Yin T Timothee, MBA, JD is a descendant of Asian and Latin roots, an Army Vet, who decided her life was not over while married and raising four children pursued and obtained her bachelors, masters, and law degrees. While she always was a woman’s champion and loved the Lord since 18, her experiences with the Lord strengthened her resolve to help women live on, and in their purpose. Divorced and now happily married to her grade-school sweetheart, she is more certain than ever that the journey with Christ was never meant to be a “perfect life” but always an intentional one. She loves the study of The Word and desires to seek the Lord and fulfill her purpose with passion and power. As a friend, wife, mother and grandmother, she thrives to help women, the world sees as "victims" or "battered" as women that can survive. Having led young ladies’ ministries, Kuan-Yin looks to effectuate the change that many are afraid to take, yet necessary in order to reach the next level. She is firm believer in pushing women to be their all, know who God is, and what He wants to do in their lives.

Doubting Yet Still Craving Change?

Doubting-Yet-Craving-Change-Chispa-Magazine

I believe that walking through life presents itself with obstacles—some “happen” to us and other obstacles we set up (unknowingly) for ourselves. And when we receive the “grace of God” to forgive ourselves for being less than perfect, our faith begins a journey of its own. Our faith must grow spiritually and develop just as…

Your Time is Now

The Time Is Now-Chispa Magazine-Kuan-Yin

So many of us walk around aimlessly for a long portion of our lives trying to figure life out. Or we have an idea of what “we want to be when we grow up” but that idea either changes or situations in life deter us so that dream takes a long time to fulfill or…

Do Want A Bite?

taste and see that he is good-Chispa Magazine

The fight to survive is a daily struggle. What I mean is that each day you are in a fight: a fight not to revert to your old self, the fight to deal with daily disappointment and hurt, a fight not to blow your cool—say something that in that moment—you should have withheld [Proverbs 15:4…

The Paradox of What is Good

The Paradox of Good-Chispa Magazine-Kuan-Yin

Good, according to Merriam Webster means “of favorable character or tendency.” Usually when everything is going “well” people say, “I had a good day.” Or when a kid brings home an A+, as a parent, we consider that a “good” grade. It is funny the things we “believe” and “say” are good. We measure “good”…

Connected to The Hip

Connected to The Hip-Chispa Magazine

It is foolish to think I can do this life without Jesus. The hip  bone’s main function is mobility and support. It is “in the center of our body and expands above and below.” I feel the same about Jesus. We are connected at the hip; we have a close relationship and spend a lot…

Road Warrior

Road Warrior-Chispa Magazine - Home Page

A “road warrior” is a person who travels, often as part of their job and works at the same time, hustling and on the move. Did you know we are not alive to live in a vegetative state? Unless there is a physical impediment preventing activity, our bodies were made to move.  The journey of…

Sensitive Spots

God-Light-Chispa Magazine

When we physically fall hard enough the evidence is a rainbow-colored bruise on our skin—or, if the fall is bad, stitches and/or broken bones (ouch). We usually learn to hide the bruise with makeup or choose to wear different clothes, so we don’t show others “how bad the fall” was. If the fall resulted in…

Fully Loaded for War

Armor of God-Chispa Magazine-Kuan-Yin

Soldiers are trained to shoot an enemy, dug defensive trenches, and defend a territory. Why would the Lord of the Bible tell us to put on “armor” if we would not “physically” be in a fight? God gives us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). But, the thief of Earth comes…

Is It Possible?

Kuan-Yin-Chispa Magazine-Friday

I saw this quote “I pray that I always err on the side of impossible” and got excited. I was excited because it meant that it really isn’t about me, alone. I can do all things when I trust and rely on God as my strength. Seeing this quote humbled and strengthened me simultaneously because…
