Apart from our shared love for Jesus, we at OYP also share a great love for food so that tells you a little bit about our choice of words here!

But as it says in scripture,"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." - Luke 4:4

It is our hope that the stories and reflections you find here will serve to encourage and bless you on your faith journey. We hope it serves as a reminder that none of us are really alone!

The Cracks Bring the Light out

by Johannes Tjendro You might have been ticked off by Star-Lord when he loses his cool in the recent Avengers movie. If only he’d been more patient. If only he were a more perfect person. It turns out that the guy behind this character we love to hate has something to say about being imperfect. […]

Finding Beauty in our Brokenness.

Written by Michelle Lee Throughout the bible, we see God choosing to use imperfect people for His mission. Peter denied Jesus three times, Paul persecuted Christians before he became one, Jonah ran away from God, David committed adultery, Mary Magdalene was a prostitute and the list goes on. They were broken people and so are […]

Testimony & Thanksgiving: Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God

by Lionel Lee “But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:33 I attended the School of Christian Leadership 2018 (SOCL) feeling very lost and very dry and seeking things of this world and not of God. Having the […]

Testimony & Thanksgiving: Daughter of the Father

by Regina Vanda College life is a time of great transformation, filled with trials but also with graces. The Lord offers to walk with us, to calm the storm for us and to straighten the way to fulfilment of our lives. It is difficult to comprehend how much grace is available for us to claim as […]

Creativity, an everyday Spirituality.

Written by Laura Tan When we hear the word “creative,” many of us are quick to reject or exclude ourselves from the label, claiming that we aren’t born creative. We are so accustomed to thinking of the creative soul as the rare and brilliant genius, the fountainhead of new and exciting ideas, the source of […]

KICKSTART: God Waits For You

I was inspired to join Kickstart through the encouragement of my parents and after I received an email that I did not manage to get a slot in my engineering freshmen camp since the slots were full. Conveniently, it was being held over the weekend and this would be the best opportunity to free myself […]

Testimony & Thanksgiving: The Lover of Your Soul Waits For You.

by Joseph Fernandez I grew up in a Catholic family, where I was considered a “good, Catholic boy”. I would attend Mass and Catechism (I mean, when your mum is the catechist, you pretty much have no choice) and, after my first God experience during Confirmation camp, I joined the Youth Ministry in my parish. […]

KICKSTART: Rooted in Love

I ended the first year of university feeling empty, because it was not spent meaningfully. At that point, I reflected on my life and found it weird that I was a Catholic but had no catholic friends at all. This prompted me to join CSA cell group. Initially thinking that I would just go for […]

The journey from sinfulness to Holiness.

Written by Nicholas Siew The Call to Holiness We yearn to be free from sin and to live a life of holiness but do we know what we are fighting against? Or what we are fighting for? Do we know what holiness means? In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for holy is Kadosch which […]

KICKSTART: A Leap of Faith

One of my friends was egging me on to participate in Kickstart but I was very hesitant and anxious. I am an introverted person and retreats make me anxious. However, as most stories go, I decided to take a leap of faith. The camp was meant to be between God and I. Sounds like a […]
