Every month, we will be sharing one of our favorite Anchor Moments with you. The Anchor Moment is a special time of sharing where someone briefly shares about a time in their life when their faith has truly anchored them, inspired them or directed their decision making.


This month’s Anchor Moment is from Jody Duppenthaler, 27-year past YoungLife volunteer and current staff member with One True Legacy, from Tacoma, WA.

Before Jesus, Jody was directionless and deep in the muck of her sin. It took her until 22 (and her 3rd commitment) for the Lord to breakthrough her hardened heart. But, oh she’s so glad He didn’t ever give up on her!

Jesus literally changed her life & she did a 180 and fell madly in love with Him. He called Jody to get a teaching degree and to serve teens in YoungLife. She volunteered for over 27 years, served on staff with women for over 8 years, and for the region for 4 years. It has been a great joy all the years! She loves people, sunshine, coffee and cycling. She believes the opportunity to meet, build friendships & point people to Jesus is the most important work because it’s eternal.

Currently Jody is on staff with Our True Legacy, an organization focused on discipling others in a myriad of ways. She is married to the greatest man, Bill, and has 3 children: Emily, 31, who’s married to Curtis; twin boys, Peter (30) married to Emma; and Andrew (30) married to Emily. She has four grandchildren: Aubrie (8), Calvin (2), Lucy (9mo), and Jane (4mo). They all have her heart!

While it seems there often are troubles and struggles, the Lord is always faithful to help Jody through it all. All her needs are more than met by Him!
