My name is Lorybeth. My closest friends call me Lobit, hence the name of this blog.
I am a daughter of the King, a scribe and worshipper at the feet of Jesus. An agent of His transformative grace, I co-labors with Him in the boardrooms of Heaven and Earth, through intercession and by offering my professions as platforms for the advancement of His Kingdom on earth.
A CPA Lawyer in commercial legal practice with focus on Tax and Data Privacy, I amassed local and cross-border experience as an external counsel and in-house tax manager to a number of well-known multinational companies. Currently, I am a pioneer of local law firm which is member firm of an ASEAN law firm now present in 10 ASEAN countries.
Before my pivot to the legal arena, I made use of my degree in Business Administration & Accountancy by being an account manager in a multinational FMCG company. While studying law, I was a finance manager in a start-up IT company and research associate for a development project.
In school, I was also active in my student organizations, where I was trained to hold leadership positions. Currently I serve the the British Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines as their Assistant Corporate Secretary.
I am also a graduate of Life Growth Inc’s courses on Integrated Bible Studies, Christian Life Skills and Faith Coaching, and Pastor Francis Frangipane’s In Christ Image Training I and II.
A member of choirs and worship teams since childhood, I love traditional and contemporary worship styles. In the churches where I grew up, I was a youth group leader and later lead a women’s ministry. In my spare time, I blog on God’s daily demonstrations and revelations, for the purposes of encouraging others and preparing content for books that God will lead me to write. Led to Women of Wonder, a women’s ministry, last October 2016, I serve as part of its worship team and as Corporate Secretary.
I have a heart to impart God’s power to supernaturally restore marriages. I am a happy wife to Michael, with whom I have three furbabies. We attend services at Windwatch Makati on Thursdays and New Life the Fort on Sundays, and regularly livestream with Planetshakers.
