For 45 years the business of hair helped Cher Stone to finance her true passion, social justice. In the early 80s she became the “junior helper” and helped to open what was referred to as the sandwich kitchen at St. Mark’s Church on Boulevard In Idaho Falls. Over 40 years later Cher and the Idaho Falls Soup Kitchen are still serving our community.

In 2013 she melded her passion for spirituality and listening to people by offering Spiritual Direction.

She graduated from Kerygma, a two-year scriptural program, and from Education For Ministry, a four-year program in the Swanee Theological School. The Haden Institute‘s two-year Spiritual Director’s program wrapped all of her studies and interests into the experience of a lifetime.
