Everyone knows that it is very easy for a mother to lose track of who she is during the years “in the trenches.” Now I find myself looking around my empty house while everyone is at school and wondering, “Who am I?”
As a church family, we place a high value on relationships and community. Community can be expressed in a variety of ways—different types and sizes of groups—but we desire that all expressions of community would live out a series of values. Of the seven core values of community that we have adopted at Sound City, one of the more critical, challenging, and misunderstood values is the “commitment to transparency.”
Last month, I had the privilege of leading a team from Sound City down to Vicente Guerrero, Mexico to serve and love the people in this community. This is our 3rd year as a church to partner with Foundation For His Ministry (FFHM).

It’s always amazing to see the Lord work through each mission team, and this year was no exception.
Many people have asked me and the other staff members what they can do to help. This is very encouraging! So, here are some ways that you can get involved to help and serve. Many of these things may seem simple, but the primary idea is that it frees me and other leaders up to focus on leadership, care, and other church-wide priorities.
