She who watches, who discovers the world. I write. I photograph. I blog. Filipina.

Hello and welcome to Charina.Writes. I am Charina. I am a wife, mother, writer, blogger, photographer and author of the bookFinding God in the Ordinary. 

For me, writing is anything – it can be beautiful, ugly, pleasant, chaotic, happy, sad, painful and calming. It’s realness scribbled on paper.

As you can tell, I am also fascinated with photography. When I look at a camera, I don’t only see beautiful images. I see life. I see stories that are longing and waiting to be told.

I would love for you to join me in my journey….
