Joey: I live in Hemet, CA with my wife Jolynne, our four children, and our many animals. I work in Public Social Services, helping the unemployed and underemployed to find satisfying work. I discovered the Ekklesia Project through the works of Stanley Hauerwas and William Cavanaugh, and their writing still influences my passion for People, Peace, and Planet. I am currently in the discernment process in the San Diego Diocese of the Episcopal Church-which I expect to last a long time. I was a delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention for Bernie Sanders and remain politically committed as an expression of loving my neighbor and my enemy.
Jolynne (Jan 2013): My name is Jolynne Aszterbaum. I am married to Joey Aszterbaum (for 17 years yesterday!) We have four kids. Kyler 15, Josie 13, Ethan 10 and Ellie 7. We live in Hemet, CA. Which is in the desert. In a valley. Alllll by itself.
