In 2009 we travelled with a group to Israel, where we experienced a moving call of God on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. We were called to draw together our talents and resources as teachers, writers, and passionate followers of Jesus to produce educational tools and materials that would make a difference in this tumultuous, emerging age.
The company name, Wasp & Bee Publications, LLC, combines aspects of our identities. Kimberly is a white, Anglo-Saxon protestant (Methodist) pastor (a WASP). Melinda is a Jewish follower of Rabbi Yeshua, who was named in the synagogue as Malka Devorah ("queen bee").
