Meet Erica Ford, Las Vegas
TM Resource Developer and
YouTube Communications Manager
Erica spent the last half of 2021 volunteering for Teshuvah Ministries as part of Rebekah's Main Group MOD POD. When she completed those 6 months at TM and as she discovered her life purpose after her Mikvah 2021 during Sukkot, her heart decided to volunteer for another year. Erica abruptly became a widow in 2018 after 9 months of marriage to her beloved zakar. Good memories. Her daughter, Veronica (29) loves to keep her on her toes as she is adventurous just like her mother. Erica works as a PBX Operator going on still after 3 decades in the same establishment in Las Vegas, NV. Her desire is to retire from there and travel by bus, train, plane, tricycle, and automobile to the worldwide destinations Papa YAH has created since the beginning of time.
"In October of 2019, I wanted to dig deeper into understanding the Creator of heaven and earth and His Hebrew/Israelite name. I had a lot of "Why" questions. While I was doing my own attempted research on this topic, I discovered Teshuvah Ministries on YouTube. I got more than what I asked for! I hit the motherlode of jackpots(Vegas Girl)...lol Once I started watching the "Hebrew Block" videos created by Rebekah, my Israelite heart just leaped out and started beating again after my recent traumatic life experience. Then, I had a chance to attend Shavuot (Feast of Weeks) to Idaho 2021 and met her entire family and fellow Mo'edim travelers. The Garvin's welcomed this ezer kenegdo into their open arms and gave me adventures I won't ever soon forget. Bus included! We also made a video of that trip. Its on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Love & Laughs! When I accepted the part of MOD 3, this was the best choice I made in my lifetime with Yeshua ha'Mashiach. I got to meet Ladies all over the States and other countries who were also after YaHoVaH's heart thru His Appointed Feast's while attending to my moderator duties on the Group Spot app. My heart overflowed with gladness! Still. Also, Rebekah taught us the importance of Ruach ha'Kodesh (Spirit of Truth) presence in femininity form from the Tanakh and how to let HER flow within us. As I move on to my next TM assignments, I will need Mahma Ruach's counsel and inspiration much more! Glory be to YHVH."
You can 'cc' me, Erica Ford, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions/concerns/ suggestions about the TM website and/or YouTube TM channel. Thank you and hope to see you in the Happily-Ever-After!
During her volunteer year (2022) Erica's goals are to ....
Just let YHVH Elohim, Yeshua haMashiach, and Ruach Kodesh move within this Melchizedek Priestess according to the designed purpose I was originally created to be for Them. Ahmein!
This will be helping Rebekah focus on the larger projects she needs to fulfill for those seeking wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of all things Moedim(Feast Rhythm) for the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel. To be able to do this for YHVH is an incredible honor and a wholehearted pleasure.

Meet Tawnya Bulger, North Dakota
TM's Sukkot Recruiter and Reunion Secretary
Tawnya spent the first half of 2021 volunteering in the Ladies of Teshuvah Group as one of Rebekah's Main Group MODS (Moderators). After completing those 6 months she has now chosen to volunteer at TM for the next year. Tawnya comes from a rancher family and has been married to Jeremy for 18 blessed years. They have a son, Cayden (17) and a daughter, Clara (16) whom she has home schooled since they were 8 and 7. Before she married Jeremy, she was a single mom with two daughters: Miranda (26) who is married with an 18 month old son and Bailey (22) who is married and expecting her first child this May. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, but credits homeschooling her youngest two with her best education! Tawnya is a published author of children's books.
"In March 2020, finally heeding the long-heard whispers of Ruach stating: "There IS more to this walk, if you desire," we held our family's first Passover celebration. A few weeks later, a friend loaned us a "Biblical Feasts" book and I discovered that Yah had SEVEN amazing and set-apart Mo’edim for His people! In May, I found "The Happy Hippy Hebrew Girl" and teachings about Feasts and before I knew it, I was spending Sukkot 2020 with the Happy Hippy Hebrew herself, feeling like a final missing piece of my faith journey was sliding into place. The entirety of the Scriptures were beginning to make sense to me and didn't feel as schizophrenic as they had before. Sukkot 2021 found myself and my family back in Idaho and it was like coming home. It was seeing again that we are not the 'only lonelies' on this journey. Even when we are the only ones in our small community. Even when our church friends and family seem to think we've taken this whole thing too far or we are trying to become "Jewish." We aren't alone. We walk with Elohim and we walk our paths with the rest of the Scattered. Introduction by email is a very poor substitution to face-to-face fellowship and I cannot wait to meet you at Sukkot 2022! Next year at Sukkot, we can rejoice at overcoming the challenges that sought to stop us, watch as the young adults reacquaint themselves with one another, and take in the views of Creator's gift to us. We can celebrate the birth of our Messiah, our faith in His work and our stumbling obedience in following after Him. You won't regret it! Make plans now to join us for Sukkot 2022 in Idaho. If you have any questions please email me at email@example.com."
During this volunteer year Tawnya's goals are to ....
● Write a children's fiction book series on the Melchizedek Priesthood and Yah's Feasts.
● Along with Melody, mine the gems out of the Ladies of Teshuvah GroupSpot app feed from Aug '21-Oct '21 to collect into a written format for Rebekah to publish into a book or KU Vault.
● Rock the Sukkot "Recruitment Secretary" role and increase the attendance of Scattered Israel next year at TM's Sukkot Campmeeting in Idaho––where we and our children will continue to discover what it means to walk this Narrow Path as a Melchizedek priest and priestesses after Ye'shua.
Meet Melody Meachum, North Carolina
Ladies of Teshuvah Communications Secretary
Melody spent the first half of 2021 volunteering in the Ladies of Teshuvah Group as one of Rebekah's Prayer War Room MODS (Moderators). After completing those 6 months she has now chosen to volunteer at TM for the next year. Melody and her husband, Mark have been married for 34 years. They have a son, Spencer (33) and a daughter Stephenie (40) who has recently adopted and given Melody the long-awaited title of, "GiGi". Melody spent 30+ years in the Beauty business. Now retired, she currently provides childcare for her new grandson. Her career path was in cosmetology. From teaching to being an award winning manager of a Salon chain in the South; from being an independent contractor to owning her own. In 2011 she left cosmetology to care for her mother. Melody is a published author.
"As I was starting my Etsy business I found Rebekah and TM while researching the Feasts of YHVH. I became better acquainted with her and many other dynamic "on fire for Elohim" ladies through Rebekah's Ladies of Teshuvah group for women. Because of the life-changing manna I received from this ministry, I jumped in, fully committed to the Ladies of Teshuvah group. I desired to go deeper, share my journey in YHVH with others, be an encouragement and source of edification for other women in the group and should the opportunity ever present itself, perhaps serve as a volunteer. To participate in this fellowship of like-minded women at all is a precious gift that my heart has greatly valued since day one. In the coming months, I'll be consulting the Ruach Ha' Qodesh for Her inspiration on what exactly She wants to communicate to the extraordinary group of set-apart women in the Ladies group twice a month. The goal of my email campaigns will be to help keep women's hearts focused on Elohim. If you haven't signed up and joined the group, please click on "Families> Women> Ladies of Teshuvah" and follow the directions. I look forward to connecting with more women over the coming months. If you feel led to contact me please do. May all the abundant blessings of an obedient heart be yours. Blessings, Love, and Shalom!" You may contact me via email here:
During this volunteer year Melody's goals are to ....
● Assist in increasing membership in the Ladies of Teshuvah group by regularly connecting through meaningful emails sent out twice a month.
● To successfully archive older Ladies of Teshuvah content with project-partner Tawnya from Aug '21-Oct '21 and organize under topical headings for Rebekah.
● To be sensitive to The Ruach's voice and be fluid enough to drop, pivot or postpone my ideas, so Hers always has priority in both creative art projects and writing.
Meet Katie Walker, Ohio
TM's Homeschool Resource Secretary
Katie spent the first half of 2021 volunteering in the Ladies of Teshuvah Group as one of Rebekah's Main Group MODS (Moderators). After completing those 6 months she has now chosen to volunteer at TM for the next year. Katie is married to Chris, and they have 3 small children (2 toddlers and a baby in the home. Katie has several certifications in Allied health. She also has an Associate's degree in Health Science for Health Information Technology, but due to her convictions and beliefs she does not work in health care. Katie stays at home home school and be mom to her beautiful children. She is always looking for a way to plant seeds of Truth in their hearts. Katie has been moved on by the Ruach ha'Kodesh to make resources for children to help guide them into Truth. She will soon be a published author.
"My husband and I have always been consistent with at least one thing in our life, and that was praying for Truth. Finally, one day right before 2020 our eyes started opening to Yehovah's true calendar. We started keeping Shabbat and shortly after we found Yehovah's feast days. Once I started walking on the Narrow Path, and made teshuvah, like many others experience, it was a lonely walk. I know I had Ye'shua, but I longed for fellowship with others ladies who loved Yehovah as much as I did, if not more. The Ruach ha'Kodesh had already weeded out people in my life and I was left with my husband and children. I felt very blessed, but I longed for friendship with other woman. Shortly after we started keeping Shabbat we were introduced to Yehovah's Feasts. We celebrated and remembered Passover for the first time in 2020. As I was watching Michael Roods series on the calendar during Shabbat Night LIVE on YouTube around Passover that year, I saw Rebekah on his show. She seemed like a really excited all-in-or-nothing kind of gal. She said "if you are a lady looking for fellowship come on over and join our Facebook group." Since that happened not only have I gained new friends, but I have gained a new family. Now I am a volunteer for her ministry. Soon under the youth section on TM's website there will be a section for home school resources. I have a passion to help others and it all started with my new heart. It is my hearts desire to bring Yehovah's Feasts to life in my children's hearts so when they are older they can bring Ye'shua's light into the world. I want to share Truth through the eyes of my little ones. You may contact me through my new YouTube Channel, called "Keeping it Set Apart." Link is below."
During this volunteer year Katie's goals are to ....
● Compile all the great Biblical homeschool resources into a list for TM's website––helping parents keep their children's hearts focused on Yah.
● Write a youth craft and activities book designed to help Torah mommas instruct their children during Yehovah's Feasts throughout the year.
● Start her own YouTube Channel about teaching children the ways of Yah: Keeping it Set Apart YouTube Channel
Tawnya Bulger, SR. MOD (POD 2) and TM Volunteer
"Rebekah’s passionate vision and drive for teaching the hungry heart longing to draw nearer, and worship in Spirit and in Truth, is unlike anything I've experienced before in ministry. Her dedication, and commitment to teach, answer questions, and mentor others, is unparalleled and unique in today’s Hebrew movement. TM has taught me much more than how to celebrate a Feast. Now, the Moadim cycle feels like a single day has been completed; an epic story, completed with the future of the remnant Bride clearly ahead, in our long awaited, and anticipated future. Each appointed Feast is a link that joins the previous celebration to the next one in the cycle. YHVH's 7 Feasts as a complete annual cycle, are properly, and perfectly marked by Elohim’s calendar in the sky, and our Shabbats. In the completed 7 Feast cycle, we can see the richly layered, grand-overview- the unspeakable enormity, of His patient design to restore us throughout mankind’s history, through His only Son, Yeshua. Should any woman desire to go deeper, TM is the place! Rebekah and her husband Issac, are a gift for the wandering heart searching for understanding, and the set-apart path “home,” to the happily-ever-after of Ye’shua’s Kingdom.This path is very straight and narrow, but it doesn’t have’t to be lonely; TM is waiting, for the yearning, seeking hearts, that crave fellowship and unity. TM is an educational and spiritual journey into the heart and mechanics of ancient Biblical Truths, pointing always to the magnificent, complete work of our Melchizedek Priest, Yeshua ‘ha Mashiack. TM prepares us for the eternal traditions that will continue in Yeshua’s Millennial Kingdom, and prepares our hearts to be Kings, and Priests, under Yeshua’s rule upon His return, as prophesied. I could’ve never written a review like this a year and half ago when I began with TM. But, the determination to be faithful to the learning process, coming humbly with no agenda except a hunger to learn and *remaining teachable, has produced the treasured fruit of understanding. I’m confident that time will continue to usher me into season-after-season of new insights and new experiences for a heart that's utterly sold-out to the King of kings! Our Heavenly family is cheering us onward as we patiently endure and pursue the call to BE Israel; an identity deserving of a passionate, whole hearted, and life-long pursuit!"

2022-2023 Communications Secretary for LoT
"I would like to thank Rebekah for giving me the opportunity to volunteer for Teshuvah Ministries (LOT – War Room) as a Moderator for the past 6 months. I have grown to know Rebekah and her family – initially through ministry, but also personally over the 6 months and am privileged to call them dear Kingdom family! Rebekah is a beautiful and passionate ambassador for Yehovah Elohim. Her creativity, enthusiasm and dedication to ministry and mentoring is contagious and very encouraging. Rebekah is especially supportive and makes herself readily available to have conversation in relation to Scriptural understanding and beliefs.She takes the role of discipleship very seriously. Her life is a consistent example of what it means to live wholly for the King and His Kingdom.Rebekah is open and approachable. Rebekah’s mission is clear – she desires for woman to embrace that for which they were originally created – to be ezer kenegdos! She defines what this role is and then seeks to equip woman with the knowledge and enthusiasm to confidently fulfill this role within the context of their own personal lives and within their families. Rebekah pours herself out tirelessly, making available resources and materials to assist ladies in walking the Ancient Path with wisdom, strength, and integrity. She willingly shares her expertise and experience and encourages those with whom she crosses paths, to join her in running the race for the Kingdom and finishing victoriously. As a mentor, Rebekah’s directive is clear. She is kind and gentle and offers guidance where necessary and “tough love” when needed. I value her no-nonsense and decisive approach.Her boundaries are clear, and she is always quick to articulate her position and to minimize any misunderstanding. She demonstrates strong leadership qualities and is not afraid to take full responsibility in making the tough decisions. A wonderful aspect of Rebekah is her selfless ability to encourage and provide opportunity for others to learn, grow and be equipped to embrace a ‘calling’ for the Kingdom.Rebekah ‘protects’ the ministry she has been given responsibility for, however she is open to making this platform available for training up more disciples and providing them with the knowledge and skill base to confidently preach the Gospel and start new ministries as they are called to do so. Rebekah is wonderfully talented and organized and prides herself in the systematic and ‘quality’ way in which she presents her ‘offering’ to her King. This means that everything she does is well articulated, beautiful and of the highest standard. It’s lovely to invest time and money in quality materials. It is very evident that Rebekah’s passion and loyalty to her Yehovah Elohim influences every aspect of her life. She lives what she preaches and is not afraid to speak up and be heard. In a world that is fast descending into the pits of darkness, Rebekah and her family are a beacon of Light, pointing others towards a saving relationship with their Elohim. I deeply appreciate how Rebekah, her family and Teshuvah Ministries have supported me in my personal journey and provided me with an opportunity to grow in my Messiah in a completely non-judgmental way. They are an asset to the Kingdom!"

"This was an incredible journey! My body, soul, and spirit needed this spiritual overhaul from the lies and deceptions I’ve taken in from the paganism view in this world. Freedom! Teshuvah Ministries availed the time and space for me to unlearn and learn the Hebrew Roots from the teachings of the Melchizedek Priesthood by Rebekah and Isaac Garvin. TM created plenty of teaching resources, reading materials from their website, and video collections to help me on my spiritual journey for a lifetime. I accepted the volunteer program as part of the MOD(Moderators) POD to assist Rebekah in maintaining communication for her audience and helping out with small projects as needed. It was a blessed joy. Gleaning alongside the Ladies of Teshuvah on the Groupspot app was amazing. I enjoyed their company while using only technology to communicate with each other daily. I enjoyed the Shabbat Fellowship because I got to see and hear the Ladies from various parts of the country and across international waters they lived in. The laughs. The love. Sharing life experiences. Sharing Bible knowledge. We welcomed and let Ruach Kodesh flow thru us for that hour and a half while She filled our hearts with the oil of gladness. I truly enjoyed being part of the MOD POD with Rebekah for Teshuvah Ministries. She made feel welcome from the get-doing! When I was asked to be part of a succession of servant-hearted Moderators for Yeshua haMashiach on the Groupspot app, I was excited and nervous at the same time. The duties were explained to me and I was given ample time for training before I entered into my 6 months of volunteer work. After a little bit of floundering at the beginning, I got the hang of my duties and Rebekah let me fly! She was patient and understanding and I appreciated this from her for her years of experience of teaching and nurturing others to grow spiritually. The few months I spent with her, I managed to learn much more about the Melchizedek Priesthood, the Moedim (Holy Feasts of YHVH), than I ever did before. This time of volunteering will help you think deeper and test for yourself the teachings of TM with Ruach haKodesh. If you decide to become a volunteer for the MOD POD, you won’t regret it. Maybe about the volunteer months being too short but each Shabbat is worth it! Rebekah Garvin has a huge heart and she just wants to give everything she knows about Elohim to every Lady she meets. She will welcome you with open arms and a giant smile on her face just for you. I’m thankful to YHVH for this opportunity to serve the Ladies of Teshuvah and Rebekah. Thank you, Teshuvah Ministries! May our path’s always be connected until we arrive at the Happily-Ever-After. I thank you very much, Rebekah, for your life devotion and work dedication to reach out to the Lost Tribe of Israel near and far. May YHVH bless you, Isaac, Hadassah, and Maggie in the now and the Happily-Ever-After! I love you, Happy, Hippy, Hebrew Lady<3! It is well with my soul.

"I am so very grateful for the time I spent as a MOD in Rebekah's Ladies of Teshuvah (LoT) group. I felt like the Ruach ha'Kodesh truly blessed that time and showed me soooo many things that I couldn’t wait to share. Even though I was such a newbie to the Feast Rhythm, or perhaps because of it, I couldn’t wait to jump in and bounce all my thoughts off of my “like-hearted” sisters in LoT...serving in the Ladies group filled me in ways I was never filled while serving in my church building! There is a depth and hunger in the group that fed my own. Without this fellowship and encouragement onto His good deeds that He has prepared for us, the Narrow Path would feel quite desolate. Thanks, Rebekah, for the opportunity and for sharing LoT and TM with us!!"

"Being a MOD for the Ladies prayer room was an awesome opportunity to say, "Thank-you" in ACTIONS. This life-changing ministry is so deserving, and the relationship building with the ladies has been wonderful. Thank you again Rebekah for allowing our wings to unfurl over LoT, to love and be loved in return. This Ladies group is ALWAYS a source of pertinent information, and a virtual hug.... It's extremely important to be connected to a group of like-minded believers during the days were headed into. All one needs to be a Moderator is a heart on fire! All I ever wanted on this side of the Kingdom is to DO something that mattered eternally. TM lovingly continues to teach and inspire my heart to creatively express love through His Feasts, and the sisterhood of hearts here that are unified in the Spirit and Truth of YHVH; what MORE could my heart ask for? In a way, LoT encircles the Throne, with honor, love and humbleness with the only intention of getting closer through Yeshua. This group of women are thoroughly focused on what matters. There's no other place I'd rather be, than serving alongside the women in this group. This experience has nourished, encouraged and changed me forever too."
"I am grateful for saying "yes " to Rebekah's invite. I'm so thankful for the time I spent as a MOD. The hard part was not talking myself out of it. I listened to my heart. To be honest, I was super nervous I would not be able to help. I was no where near the level of wisdom or good with words like my MOD sisters was at the time. In the end, I think that is why I was able to help. We all have different skill to bring and serve...Within the 6 months I felt the Rauch ha'Kodesh shaping my heart. Serving with Rebekah and the other MODs have brought so much joy into my life."

"The opportunity to become a MOD in Rebekah's Ladies of Teshuvah group has blessed me beyond words...! So grateful and Elohim has moved me into places I never thought possible!! Being a MOD has been life-changing! The Ruach ha'Kodesh has really worked with me these past 6 months and I'm so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to serve alongside all these beautiful ladies!! Totally transparency, I was terrified!! Now I see there was a bigger plan... all I had to do was say 'yes'! Prior to being a MOD, I was so camera-shy and now the Ruach ha'Kodesh is leading me to create content and encourage others in their walk... something I NEVER thought in my wildest imaginations would happen! There are so many testimonies I could share in relation to my time as a MOD... it is literally just being willing, the Ruach does the rest!! Praying for a new generation to rise up and serve... the harvest is truly plentiful!"
"This is a great time to give yourself the opportunity to unlearn and learn, understand deeper, and grow in body, soul, and spirit while doing things for others. I gave myself this chance and lifetime challenge when I become a MOD in Rebekah's Ladies of Teshuvah group. My "self" is content and satisfied with my decision. Katie and Rebekah helped me navigate the technical part of Group Spot and everything that entails. My duties were to help other ladies keep the Feast Rhythm and weekly Shabbat Fellowships. Thank you to MOD 2 & 3 for your wisdom, knowledge, patience and understanding. Excited to see the next Ladies who will come beside TM and help build up for the next generation of Yah's Chosen."
"I've been very grateful to share being a MOD with some amazing incredible women. It’s been a great learning experience, and I definitely would recommend it to anyone who loves companionship and sisterhood in this walk; even beyond what you could get just being on the LoT app or group. I'm thankful for this experience!"
MOD POD 3 and Member of Ladies of Teshuvah
Rebekah hand picks women in her group to rise up and assume more responsibility in it. It is an amazing opportunity she offers other women to serve beside her in Ye'shua's Royal Priesthood.
But first you must be part of the Ladies of Teshuvah group and show that you care about it and others.
