Writing To Remember

I’m a word person, but I’ve never been a good journal-er. It feels so formal and final to write with a pen in a journal. It leaves no room for me to mull and play with words and re-write, which is more my preferred style. In fact, the only times I’ve journaled daily have been…

One Simple Call, One Amazing Encounter!

Beverly is an 88-year-old woman who has lived in Fullerton for many years. I have lived in Fullerton my entire life. Beverly and I do not live too far from one another yet I would never have known her except through the Senior Buddy program at Fullerton Free. I have a new friend in Beverly….

People Like Me

“. . . And when they learned that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.” Exodus 31 I meet my senior buddy on the street outside her apartment complex. I greet her from behind a mask, smiling with my eyes (that’s a thing, I guess). I…

Getting Creative

Two weekends ago, our Chosen leaders celebrated our foster teens as we closed out our club year! Usually, we end the club year with a birthday celebration, complete with cake and ice cream, fun games, and a discussion/huddle group time to go over the Scripture shared. But due to the COVID-19 restrictions, this end of…

Pressing Pause And Deep Breaths

DEEP BREATHS . . . That’s what I was thinking on the morning of Thursday, March 12. It feels like a lifetime ago. I was sitting in my car in the pouring rain with a dead battery, a cranky 3-year-old, a wet, smelly dog AND the reverberation of the breaking news of stay-at-home orders ringing…

Sidewalk Church

Gathering for church out on the sidewalk? Singing worship songs on the grass in the front yard? Reading Scripture from our camp chairs with neighbors? These activities were NOT on our radar before March 2020. You can probably relate — who could have guessed that we would do months of streaming sermons from our living…

Best Seat in the House

Can you believe it’s already been over eight weeks of shelter in place? Where did April go? I remember when this all first started, and I was asked to coordinate and oversee the Volunteer Strike Team as our church staff took action in the midst of Covid-19. At first it was overwhelming . . ….

The Church In Fullerton

How many churches are there in Fullerton? There’s one church! It’s amazing to see what God does when our cities churches link arms in an effort to love and serve our city’s needs in times of crisis.

Better Working Together

Recently, the Schaefer’s and I embarked on a journey to fill up our church’s stake bed truck with food to refill our pantry on North Campus. I drove the stake bed while the Schaefer’s followed behind in their truck (social distancing of course) and we were off! When we arrived at Second Harvest Food Bank…

Prayer Walking

My husband Jim and I have lived in our current house for oh, about 38 years. You’d think we would have evangelized for several blocks in each direction by now. Well, not for lack of trying. We’ve done the usual stuff: hosted Christmas parties for 30-40 neighbors (one year we had costumed Dickens carolers from…
