Kate Fuller

Kate has been with Women4Truth since 2010 and is very grateful for its years of Biblical, transformative teaching. Her passion for the Bible was instilled in her as a small-town pastor's daughter. Verses memorized in childhood sustained her through two bouts with cancer when her children were young. Consequently, she loves young moms and Biblical truth's power in their lives. Kate first taught in 2001 on "God's Purposes in Suffering." Since then, she has taught at women's conferences on a variety of topics, from "Doctrine and the Daily Grind" to "Trapped in the Minivan - Lessons about God Along the Way." She and her husband Jon are empty nesters and avid rafters and hikers, founding an adventure group at their church, New Valley. Their eldest, Nate, goes to UCSD Medical School; Nate's wife Grace works with foreign students at UCSD; their daughter Jesse works for the Tempe Police Department; their youngest, Sam, works with computer systems in San Diego. Because Kate has way too many words to keep bottled up, and because she believes God's children should testify to His grace, she has a blog, gracesentme.tumblr.com.    kate@jefuller.com
