Tara's Story...

My stay at the Sheepfold can truly be described as life changing. Many things have happened to me during our stay that could only have come from God. I feel very blessed to have found this little oasis in the midst of all of the difficult challenges I was facing over a month ago.


Here I have a found shelter, healthy meals, clothes and unconditional love for myself and my year-old son, Noah. In fact, it is his first birthday today, and I am planning a birthday party here for the whole house. Legal services were provided for me from a professional, who loves God with all his heart. These are just a few blessings.


I give thanks, my innermost thanks to Fran Lundquist, whose devotion to Christ is witnessed through the establishment of this ministry. The Sheepfold has helped my family during this time of our greatest need.

For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Baptism Story

Praise report! We had a baptism here this weekend! Here is her story!


“I felt like the Lord suddenly was telling me it was time to be baptized and the manager on shift encouraged me. I went up to talk to a staff member and they asked why I wanted to be baptized.” I said, “Because I believe that Jesus is my Lord and Savior! Then I was able to be baptized and celebrate my new life in Christ! What an awesome day!!!”


- Ashley, Sheepfold Mom

Hike of Mt. Rubidoux

Enjoying the sunshine with the kids! We highly recommend the hike to the cross at Mount Rubidoux. It helps to remind us to check in with Jesus as we walk in the world!

Babies and Bible

As a single Mom, there are times that my baby joins us for Bible study. My guy is already taking notes and learning how to highlight scripture.


Please continue to pray for our families and be encouraged by our favorite scripture from today's Bible study.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
