Happy Birthday KAYLA RAE

I am in a state of SHOCK... My firstborn child turned 20 years old yesterday... Am I getting old or what??? The good side of all this is that Renee and I are blessed with three awesome children.
Kayla happens to be the oldest. She attends Hope International University, which is across the street from Cal State Fullerton. Her love is for the Lord and I know that one day she will be in the ministry serving the Lord... perhaps even here at the Shepherd :)

I've told Kayla from day one, "Be Humble not Hyper." The reason I tell her this is because she is the most energetic person I know (besides the person I look at in the mirror each day). She loves life and she loves the Lord. Her spirit is contagious and she leads her school, her team, her friends and her peers to a closer walk with Jesus. If you ever get the chance to spend some time with her, you would know what I was talking about.

Ohhhhhhhh yes, you didn't think I would forget to tell you, did you? She also is the starting point guard for the basketball team. Now, this blog is complete...hehahahehahahahe !

Pastor Dudley,

Your love for your church family, as well as your God-given family is such a wonderful sight to behold. I've now been a member of SOTH for nearly 7 years and I've loved every minute of it. When I first met my husband, we decided to visit his church, as well as mine to determine which would become our official church home after marriage. Well, he came to Shepherd one week, then the next,then the next. We never made it to his church and that was 3 1/2 years ago! One of our favorite parts of the service is offering time. We know we are sowing seed into good soil and that makes us feel great. God bless you, Pastor.

Wow am I feeling old. I remember when you could not make it to the supercross. So Marty and I took your kids and his to watch the race at the collisium. I carried your daughter out on my shoulders so that we could keep track of her and not loose her in the crowd. I know that she will probably not remember that night or me for that matter. But Everytime I see a picture of your family, I am reminded of what a great family you and Marty have been blessed with.

Your Friend,
Bill Sternberg
