Hello! You may have noticed that the website has not had any new articles posted for quite a while. This is simply because around late-2017 I made the difficult decision to focus my time and energy on other projects for the time being.

While I have hopes to be able to pick up more writing for ourLynden in the future, we still put occassional updates on the Facebook Page for ourLynden and encourage you to follow there!

After 8 years in Seattle, Joel and Lindsey moved back to Lynden in 2013. Joel is the founder of ourLynden and Borderview International, and serves on the Lynden Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors [ourLynden is not directly affiliated with the Chamber]. Joel and Lindsey make their church home at Calvary Creekside on the Badger. Their son Jude Hanson VanderHoek was born in 2017. "Lynden is home and we love it!"
