Additional Info
These are some of the hopes of our Asian parents. Knowing that our parents have sacrificed for us, we want to honor their wishes. But we also want to serve Jesus, and sometimes that can seem to conflict with family expectations. Discovering our Asian identity in the midst of Western culture means learning to bridge these conflicting values. This book can serve as our guide along the way as we explore
our parents’ ways of loving us
vocations that show respect for our parents and allow us to serve God
the “model minority” myth and performance pressures
marriage, singleness, and being male and female
racial reconciliation
spirituality and church experiences
unique gifts Asians bring to Western culture
