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 firstname.lastname@example.org."
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.

"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.

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
