35 Times Around the Sun: Signs of Renaissance

Now Available

This book is my gift to the travelers that seek understanding of self and appreciate responsible stewardship and its call to action. Sometimes I bump into those who have dreams with no demands and ponder in total defeat. Ignorance can choke progression and cause misfortune so it is only wise to seek counsel, therefore added knowledge may freely flow unto thee. I encourage you to follow your life’s signs and do a critical study into the causes and effects of major situations that seem coincidental. Those moments actually highlight a deep world that may still exist in someone else’s life and your resolutions can create valuable solutions that renew hope and change the life of a human being.

Brief Samples

Great friends....Ram & Angelica

Asia overall, has a rich history of cultures and traditions that contribute and influence our world very much. Everywhere I have visited whether in Japan, China, Korea or the Philippines. They love their families and country with a golden heart.

When I arrived back in the Philippines in 2013, I was able to appreciate their sincere dedication to their country every day-to date. The thing that stuck out the most were the stories of hope that many have shared with me openly and confidential. I mentioned some of the stories in my 5th book Philippine Dream “More Rice Jamal,” and have created several programs that hopefully will allow some of those dreams come to fruition. The idea is to support by teaching and guiding the dream to life!

It is my pleasure to intertwine my gift with their aspirations and execute a plan that’s sure to preserve their rich history’s template and motivate generations to come. That’s why one of my future book releases Philippine Dream 2 will be available after the event in 2015!

Traveling opens the eye where television has no jurisdiction and allows for a clear understanding of what lies beyond the blue water and mountains. This is a beautiful country indeed with a different kind of wealth that our western family could benefit from in a variety of ways. I do my best to highlight the "Maganda" here via my website and books, on behalf of a great people and their good effort to maintain its rich resources...'themselves.'
                The Inays,Tatays, Ates and Kuyas should be known all over the world for their lived definition of family, respect, prudence and pride for their Republic. Unfortunately, most only know about their 'third world condition' that the media routinely coins. That idea alone pauses a person to consider visitation and exploration to view the religious lifestyle of dedication on several platforms of progression that many could learn from.

Like General Douglas MacArthur, I too was first brought here by means of military order via the “Fortress at Sea” USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) Nuclear Aircraft Carrier. Interestingly enough, I too made a promise to return as you can view my YouTubeVideo Philippine Dream “More Rice Jamal,” which is actually my 5th book release last year.

I did not receive the Medal of Honor as the great General did. However, I created a Philippine Dream Award dedicated to those people that I continue to meet here each day whose good deeds are often overlooked. I am certain that he witnessed the same spirit of love in these people that catapulted his promise to return and fulfillment of his word.

Salamat for visiting my website, there’s a lot more to come!

Importance of Family

Seasons Greetings from our family to yours, may God bless you
with tidings of Joy this New Year and beyond!

Speaking of family, I am very proud of my mother, Irish Rose Lowe. After a wonderful year of inspiration by publishing her 1st 2 books in 2014, her 1st CD Single"Hold On" is now available to kick off 2015. Follow the provided links to store and her website.

“It was foretold by my mother Delores Sue Abram during her life that I will not only survive but live to inspire others by various means. The stories of my life via song and books are driven by the Spirit of the Lord. My life is proof that God listens, inspires and will answer the prayers of the weary. So I thank all of you who remembered your sister in her days of trouble and encourage you to “Hold On.”
God Bless You All!”



Happy birthday to our first son Jarel on this day of November 18, 2014.....just days shy of my favorite grandmother Delores; who smiles from the sky.
Salamat Po Tatay God for the safe delivery & good health of my ganda wife and son. Major shot out to the hospital staff & owner for their exceptional professionalism and hospitality.
I really appreciate those of you who have sent greetings of love and tidings of joy via prayer,
God Bless You All!

Family life is one the most important aspects of God's great Creation. It contains the reflection of pure Love that nurtures and disciplines in order to protect its essence. When you hear the word Family, it has the ability to instantly tame a memory that's true and never fading. These posts are dedicated to inspire Family Life!

Our Son Jarel!

After journeying “35 Times Around the Sun,” I am blessed that our awesome Creator gave me a beautiful wife and our little prince, eager to arrive. I know my favorite grandmother’s Delores, Clara & Mary are somewhere smiling in the sky. I can’t wait to bring him back to the states so he can feel the love of his grandparents, uncles, aunts & cousins. I could barely take my eyes off the screen, thank you God for smiling on us!

Family Love from Crystal Hamilton Fahrner & Family!

My cousin Larissa, Brother Jose & their daughter Gabby!

Surprise visit to Kesia's School, Read Story below.

Our surprise trip to Quezon Province to see my little sister Kesia, Inay Linda & Tatay Pete here in the Philippines was very rewarding, on so many levels. Kesia had the biggest smile on her face having no idea that I would visit her in school. Not only was she happy to see me & my wife, but her sister Keren was with us as well, a triple dose of love.  All the kids were excited asking thousands of questions at a high speed rate!
                I was very humbled when I learned that the student’s teacher Ms. Wilma, who is pictured in red standing behind me; is a Cancer Survivor! She continues to do her monthly therapy while still continuing to teach. This is very inspirational, to see an individual who is dedicated to her life’s purpose, putting the kid’s needs above hers. Although they have no air condition like I did when I was in a kid in school, they are the most energetic kids that listen to instructions carefully. Ms. Wilma also welcomed me to join them again and I am definitely looking forward to that.
                I am very happy to be apart of Kesia’s life and consider her as my sister, the support of family goes a very long way. For those of you that don’t know, Kesia is the little girl on the front cover of my 5th book, Philippine Dream “More Rice Jamal.” Her family has a very special place in my heart. I remember when I often surprised my little niece Marcedes back in the United States, returning home on leave. My dad informed me that just by her seeing me allowed her to feel family support, in return it ultimately motivated her to crave learning. Kesia has the highest grade consistently in her class! The future of the Philippines looks very great!

My Inay Linda Surprised!

Keren, Inay & Maremy

What a great way to spend a beautiful Sunday in the mountains of Picnic Grove Park
Tagaytay, Philippines. Although Taal Volcano has recorded many eruptions throughout 
its history, I am happy that today it was on chill mode!

One of our son's Ninangs' Dianne joined us ;)

Bigggg thanks to PNP for giving us a (PULIS) escort

My mother always gets my mail first. Thanks mother, it is yours as well...just for being my Mother, encouragement of a mother & dad goes a very long way ;))) Waiting on two more...for you ;)

Visiting Kamay ni Hesus Shrine in Lucban, Quezon was very interesting…..definitely appreciate the ‘monumental’ artistry at that level in the mountains. The statue is 50ft tall and the 3rd tallest of its kind in the world.
