Now that I am in the field of church consulting in helping church leaders “get it done,” my assistance takes many forms. One job I have been doing is for University Covenant Church in northern California, serving in the role of long-distance event project manager and stage/decor designer. Last week the event launched and I […]
As a creative entrepreneur, I have discovered one of my joys is a wide variety of things to do — and learn! My day varies from event planning, stage design, wedding decor, church consulting, and now editing a trailer for a potential TV show! How to juggle everything?
At the end of October, I left being on staff at Saddleback Church. How life changes. Now I am doing something very unexpected… using calligraphy and stick figures to make leadership videos!
It’s been a long time since I have done a stage design, and it was great fun to finally integrate one with LED lighting!
Recently, someone asked me to post some before and after pictures of our church stage. I’ve put up pictures and links to the individual posts for details. Compare the before and after pictures — what a change! At my previous church, the color scheme was gold and maroon. This gave a very traditional feel to […]
Although I have been involved in the production of various dramas, sketches, musicals and other creative elements, it’s usually been in a coordinator or producer role. This summer I got the chance to be the drama director of our children’s summer camp play, Superhero Central.

Revit is the kind of program I have wanted to use all my life. I learned how to draw house plans and model a […]
My last post talked about the Disney musical spoof our staff did for our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner this past weekend. (Take a look at the video!) But the program had many more elements to make this an international extravaganza. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how it came together.
Last night was our church’s Volunteer Appreciation event — a no-holds-barred, all-stops-pulled, over-the-top event for the people we love — our volunteers!!! This year’s theme was “Ambassador for Christ,” an international journey of celebration through activities, video, and even a Disney musical! We had this event at Saddleback Irvine South for our campus’s volunteers, including […]
One of the cool things in Hawaii is looking at the amazing nature here. The plants are so green and full of various colors. As we drive around, I love looking at all the flowers. Spring is truly beautiful here.
When we came to Hawaii many many years ago, there used to be a Dole Pineapple tour. However, Dole has moved away and now there only one company in the U.S. that grows pineapples, called Maui Pineapples. We went on a tour and learned so much interesting info on pineapples!
This year, for the first time, Saddleback Church had Good Friday services. Our campus had two Good Friday services, and also 7 Easter services!
