Cindy Foley | Discerning God in Our Stories, Episode 7

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Cindy Foley

If my chief thing is to look for God, and look for His goodness in people, it makes me less critical.” – Cindy Foley

Cindy Foley and her husband Tim are the Divisional Leaders of the Northwest Division of The Salvation Army, with headquarters in Seattle, WA.  Tim and Cindy have served together in appointments in Hawaii, Arizona, and in a variety of roles in California, notably as the first Administrators of the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in San Diego, at the College for Officers Training, and as Divisional Leaders for the Golden State Division. Cindy was later appointed as the Chief Financial Officer for The Salvation Army USA.  Cindy shares highlights of noticing God throughout her life, including life lessons from the farm, teaching Sunday school at age 11, opening the first Salvation Army Kroc Center and serving with her husband in ministry. Cindy encourages us to notice God as we think of people – “There’s a big difference between looking for the goodness of God in people instead of looking for mistakes or things that aren’t done.”
