Yolanda Miller (also known as Yo), a SoCal native, currently works with leading spiritual formation groups for students in Vocation Formation Groups and Apprenticeship Groups at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, as well as groups for those in the marketplace who are curious about exploring God’s calling through Fuller’s De Pree Center for Leadership. She is currently working on her spiritual direction certification with Sisters of St. Joseph in Orange. The common thread through all of these is a passion for helping people discover their identity in Christ, what they were created to do with their life, and a deeper intimacy with their Creator.
Before and after graduating from Fuller with a M.A. in Theology and Youth Ministry in 2000, Yolanda worked in professional youth ministry before ‘retiring’ to answer the call to be stay-at-home parent to two kids, along with her husband Jim, in Glendora, CA where they currently reside. She enjoys gardening, writing, traveling (mostly in her mind, during the pandemic), laughing (often at herself) with others, and eating really amazing food (preferably that she didn’t have to cook herself). Also, in her previous lives, she helped launch Glendora’s first coworking space, was the UCLA mascot, Joe Bruin, and was a TV extra.
