Kelly Yee (kellyyee)- was one of the original contributors to this site when we first started writing in 2009. She now contributes as our graphics designer. She is currently a Graphic Communication student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Over the past few years she has developed promotional materials and designed/managed the online/social media strategies for many of the ministries and churches that we all serve in. It is always encouraging to see someone pursue their God-given gifts in the universities, and to use it for His glory. Full disclaimer, Kelly is my (Bryan’s) younger sister.
