Let’s get acquainted! I’m Kelli Best, what’s your name?
This is a basic question when we first meet someone, wouldn’t you agree? Do you normally lead with your own name, or do you ask the other person’s name first? Normally, I introduce myself first because that’s the way my mom taught me! No right or wrong answer here, just a question, of which there will be many. I like to ask questions, to teach and encourage, and to learn about other’s lives; what makes them unique and what has God called them to do.
So, for now, this is what God has called me to do; to share with you what He is sharing with me.
Having been involved in ministry for the last 35 years of my life, I have experienced many things and grown in ways that are unbelieveable at times! These are the things to be shared and planted into the lives of others.
I am an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. Bill and I have been married since 1989 and we have two adult children, Ashlee and Paige. Having worked in church ministry for 30 plus years, we have served in various churches across the country from Missouri to Texas to Ohio and now in Washington state. For many years, we worked specifically in music ministry. Bill then became an associate pastor and finally a lead pastor in eastern Washington where we have been for the last ten years. I have served in women’s ministry for many years in the local church as well as at the Northwest Ministry Network as Women’s Ministry Facilitator for two years. I love speaking and writing and the opportunity to share with others what God is doing in my own life and what He is revealing to me. Cooking and baking are passions as well as reading and all things coffee!
I hope you find something here that sparks an interest. If not, it was nice to meet you.
Let’s begin. . .

Hi Kelli. Sally Catlin here. So happy to see you are starting this blog. I just KNOW that you will have inspiring and helpful things to say as this page grows and you allow God to lead you forwards……and not just on Monday mornings allotted time! You said you like to ask questions. I was reading a book by Stuart and Jill Briscoe that talks about when we meet up with friends how we say “how are you? You’re looking good”. And the authors write… insert a simple question: “Are you being good and doing good?”…..then wait for the answers. Food for thought for us questioning people! Will continue to hold you up in prayer as the Holy Spirit moves you forward in this endeavor. God bless dear friend.
Thanks, Sally for your prayers and your support!! I love the challenge you mentioned above!!! May just have to use that sometime!
