Amber’s Story


God has redeemed me from my sinful ways. He has set me free from my abusive past. The Lord God has me, and my three beautiful daughters, in His hands and mighty protection! He is healing our broken hearts day by day; each step I take towards God has a magnificent healing power on my life. I am HAPPY, and I am not afraid to smile anymore! I take pride in teaching my children about God’s love and His many bountiful blessings!


I am very thankful for Sheepfold, and the love and hope for a new life I receive every day from all the wonderful people at Sheepfold.


None of this would have been possible if Officer Nick, from Running Springs, CA, had not taken the time to listen to my cry for help. He truly helped my family by being patient and staying in contact with me. After 3 months of being involved with my case, he offered the Sheepfold (again) as an opportunity and this time, I took it.


I was very nervous about taking such a big step, but Officer Nick spoke to me and calmed my fears. Without him taking time out of his busy schedule I would not be at the Sheepfold with my new joy, hope and love I have with God.


Truly caring and taking time out of your day can make a wondrous difference in someone’s life, future and hope in the Lord!







Happy Mother's Day!


Students Contribute Each Month


The students at California Baptist University diligently serve the Sheepfold on a monthly basis. They do any task asked of them such as washing the vans, sanitizing the toys, organizing our food pantries and garages, and even picking the fruit from our various fruit trees.


We are so thankful for their continued commitment and their servant hearts. Thank you CBU students for faithfully serving each month!


You are such a blessing to us!

Thank You for the Car!!


Wow! Yesterday morning on my way to school, I was thinking about the way I have been praying, thinking about where I’ve been and where I am going. Waiting for my bus, I knew I would be late once again, but I was able to say “It’s OK!” I said those words because I knew it was.


I know the importance of keeping the faith, I just didn’t know my blessing would come before I even got back home! God is Awesome! This gift of a donated car is so special to me and is a huge step towards independence again. God bless you for being so giving, kind, and generous. Thank you for the love in your heart. I just can’t say thank you enough for the car. I couldn’t even sleep through the night, I just had to write you.
