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…

Women In Worship

Just as I was about to enter my current role in shepherding Women’s Ministry, we had a summer night of worship. That night as we sang, “I will put my trust in you alone and I will not be shaken,” the room began to literally shake as we experienced an earthquake together. I will never…

Sisters Zooming With Sisters

Our Engage women’s small group meets weekly during the year and then takes summers off. We were transitioning to this mode of going to a monthly restaurant meet-up when we unexpectedly got the word “stay home.” It was odd and a bit jarring. We skipped our first restaurant get together and soon a month had…

Mentoring Amidst Covid-19

This is a crazy and very unique time in which we are living! Most aspects of our lives probably look very different right now than they did over a month ago. Masks and hand sanitizer. Zoom and Livestream. Doordash and drive through. Pj’s all day long. Out of stock toilet paper and flour. Binging TV…

How to Ride A Bike: What Triplet Four-Year-Olds Taught Me About Anxiety

Last week one of my daughters learned how to ride a bike. She skipped her training wheels and went straight to two wheels after a few months of perfecting the balance bike. She is only four years old, and she made her two sisters (they’re triplets) jealous almost immediately. As she rode down the street…

We Love Our Preschoolers Because He First Loved Us

Over the last few weeks, Fullerton Free Preschool has been temporarily closed in an effort to comply with government regulations and help stop the spread of COVID-19. While we miss the laughter and play in the classroom, we know this time away is for the safety of our families and staff. During this closure, our…

When Hope Died

Perhaps this season of strangeness we find ourselves in is allowing us to experience Holy Week in a new way. Perhaps you find yourself relating to the disciples this year. Good Friday wouldn’t have felt good to them. Not at all. Had I been with them, how long would I have stayed in the garden…

Humerian Missionary Update

We, like you, are adjusting to living life while practicing social distancing and self-isolation. Ukraine closed things like schools and the border fairly quickly after the epicenter of the outbreak shifted to Europe. Only essential businesses are open. And we, like you, have transitioned to working from home, alongside caring for our daughter and doing…
