I am for Boulder with love.

"As someone who has struggled with addiction and homelessness in the past, I understand the needs here as well as the possibilities. God’s grace has allowed me to overcome many obstacles in my life, and now all I want to do is give back to this city that I love. Through my work at Mental Health Partners, serving in the community, and praying for people as I walk Pearl Street, I am For Boulder With Love.”

"After living in Boulder for 35 years, we absolutely love the people of our city—especially our neighbors in North Boulder. A few years back we decided together that we wanted our home to be a gift to our neighborhood. In the summer we host a happy hour on our driveway, called ‘Drinks on the Drive’—an open invite for our neighbors to come gather, meet each other, and catch up on life. Through this simple act, God has opened up countless ways for us to be For Boulder With Love.”

"My time as a student at CU has been filled with defining moments. From graduating with a major in Engineering to meeting life-long friends, the last four years have been an incredible blessing to me. But being a student in college can also be challenging, confusing, and lonely. Through God’s leading, I’ve been able to serve college students through our University Ministry. In this way, I am For Boulder With Love.”

"When I moved to the U.S. from Taiwan as a student many years ago, I struggled with communicating in English for even simple tasks. Life was exciting, but also challenging. Over the years, God has given me many opportunities to use my past experiences to help those going through similar challenges. Through CU and other organizations, God continues to bring the nations to us here in Boulder. By helping international women and others new to the community feel more at home, I am for Boulder With Love.”

"I quit my job in Singapore to move back to Boulder so that I could live in a place again where I could bike, run, be outside, and be healthy. God meets me in the beauty of His creation, and I know that is a gift He offers everyone in Boulder. What I didn’t expect were all the opportunities God would give me to be a gift to others. Even in simple gestures, like when my small group handed out protein bars on the hiking trail, I am For Boulder With Love.”

"I’ve always loved hiking and walking around my neighborhood, enjoying God’s beautiful creation and saying hello to the many people that walk this part of town. As I got older, I started getting tired more quickly on my walks and I would often look for a big rock or a bench to rest on. It was on one of these walks many years ago that God gave me the idea to put a bench in my front yard for people like myself to rest and linger a while. It may just be a bench and a cardboard sign, but it’s in this way that I am For Boulder With Love.”

This vision to love Boulder will take all of us.
