About Vania Tan
Vania loves to create. But while she would rather click her mouse than type on her keyboard, she is game to draw parallels in everyday life to what the word of God says through text. Her name is a natural conversation starter (although she has heard far too many variations to it). Just like her name, uniqueness is what she appreciates and through all her experiences she is able to say that God has made everyone unique in His own perfect way. Her desire in life is to continually carry out the love of God through the way she lives and to others around her.

I come from a family of five, comprising four women and one man. We have our fair share of annoying habits: those we used to have, those we still have, and those I do not even want to imagine we might develop in future.
“Every day is Mother’s Day”, my mother would jokingly say to me every so often. Having been away from home during my university days and now living some 10,000 kilometers away from my mom, I couldn’t agree more. I treasure dearly each moment I get to spend with her. Mothers, as most of us would […]
The solar eclipse that happened in mid-March was indeed a breathtaking spectacle. While millions witnessed the event around the world, a fortunate few in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard, far north of Europe, even got to see a total solar eclipse, with the moon completely blocking the sun. As I don’t live anywhere close to […]
