Media & Awards

Truly Rich and Blessed’s author, Tina Santiago Rodriguez, is honored to have her work featured on different sites, and also in various print publications both here in the Philippines and abroad. Below are just some of the sites to which she has contributed (and still contributes, for a few) — just click on each image to view her articles:

“Truly Rich Mom” Features

Tina has also been blessed to be featured on a few websites as “Truly Rich Mom,” which was the old name of this site. She is still very much a mom (and a wife!) and continues to advocate intentional family life — including homeschooling — here on Truly Rich and Blessed.

In 2019, Tina’s motherhood story was also featured on Manila Bulletin (print edition).

TV Appearances

Over the past few years, Tina has also been invited to be on TV for different reasons. Below are a few clips:

ANC Bantay Bata segment on Homeschooling

GMA 7 Assignment Pilipinas on Working From Home

Kerygma TV Ad for Kerygma TV Partners (with her family, part of her “riches” here on earth)

Tina was also invited to guest on ANC’s personal finance show, On The Money, in December 2015 but unfortunately, the episode was preempted due to more urgent news coverage on Typhoon Nona.


Never in her wildest dreams had Tina imagined that this blog would be nominated for any award, much less selected as a finalist for anything. But God has other plans for us most of the time, and in 2015, this site — then known as “Truly Rich Mom” — was chosen as a finalist for the Family and Relationships category of the Bloggys 2015 – Philippine Blogging Awards

It was an honor to be among other wonderful and inspiring bloggers, and Tina gives all the glory back to the Lord!

In 2017, Tina was again surprised when her blog was included in the list of nominees for “Best Catholic Blog” at the Catholic Social Media Awards. By God’s grace, and through Mama Mary’s intercession, Truly Rich and Blessed was among the awardees!

Beyond any earthly recognition though, Tina hopes that Truly Rich and Blessed will continue to be God’s platform for His work. All for His greater glory!
