About Kate Guajardo
Name: Kate Guajardo
Kate’s family: In 2009 I married my best friend, Aaron. Since then we’ve added the greatest kids to our family; Penelope, Silas, and our new edition, Eleanora.
Ministry Role: I serve as the Pastor of Oaks Kids by leading and developing the weekly service and events. Oaks Kids is for kids ages 0 to 5th grade.
Regular order at Starbucks: I like to change it up. Pike’s Place, Vanilla Latte, Caramel Macchiato, and Flat Whites are all in my regular rotation.
Favorite movies: I really don’t like rewatching movies unless it’s Disney classics or my absolute favorite, You’ve Got Mail.
Favorite Sports: College Football
Favorite Band/Music: I have 2 Spotify playlists: Bethel Worship & Disney
Favorite Books: Loving Your Kids on Purpose by Danny Silk & Anonymous by Alicia Chole
Favorite TV Shows: Lost, King of Queens, and This is Us
Favorite scripture: Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
People who inspire me: I am fascinated by people who spend a lifetime devoted to God’s call on their life. I love to hear the stories of a life well lived!
Weird quirks: I really love connecting with people. So if I run into someone I haven’t seen in a really long time, I feel the need to approach them and remind them how they know me. I’ve embarrassed myself more times than I’d like to admit when people don’t reciprocate with the same excitement I have to reconnect with them.
One thing that most people don’t know about me: Aaron and I were youth pastors for 8 years at a bilingual church in New Mexico. So I like to think I can speak Spanish, pero hablo solomente poquito Español.
When and where I got saved: Just about every week in Children’s Church
Least Favorite Thing to Do: I really do not like hanging out at the mall (at least not since 8th grade).
Hidden talent: I like to think that I know all the lyrics to songs. If I don’t I just make them up.
What makes me laugh: My kids. They say the funniest things and don’t even know it!
