About Me ~ Oma Gerhild!

Hi! I'm Gerhild Fulson and welcome to my website!

Gerhild in the kitchenThat's me ... making some goulash soup!

Born in Germany, immigrated to Canada when I was a toddler, wife of one (celebrated our 47th anniversary this year), mother of three, grandmother of three, teacher, writer, cook, website consultant, mentor, and lover of life: that’s me.

I live close to Niagara Falls in Southern Ontario. These gorgeous surroundings enable my hubby, Andy, and I to go on photographic outings to take photos to post on our websites. Of course, most of my photos are of food!

With so much going on right now, I feel like I’ve just started to fulfill the real purpose of my life. So blessed to be able to say that!

Gerhild in BremenMe again ... in Bremen!

The present path I’m on started in 2006 on a trip to Germany. It was our first trip back since we’d immigrated over 50 years ago.

What struck both Andy and I was the deadness of many of the churches we visited. Beautiful, historic buildings, lovingly restored, empty, except for tourists.

We were struck by the hopelessness of many we spoke to … their families suffering with cancer, depression, and suicide.

We returned, and together with another couple, founded the Gottes Wort ministry and now travel yearly to Germany, ministering and teaching in small house groups and churches.

To fund this, I started Together with this website and (over 76,000 fans), I so enjoy being able to share my German heritage and culture with others.

It’s always a joy when someone writes in to say that what they’ve read and/or made has rekindled fond memories of being in the kitchen with their Mutti and Oma.

What I try to include here on my site are recipes that are traditional, yet quicker and easier to make than the original. Many are my own creations, such as Flatladen.

This is my take on Rouladen. In fact, when I first posted it online, if you googled Flatladen, the result was 0. That’s because it’s a word created by my boys. If you google it now, there are over 10,000 results. My recipe! Other recipes here are adaptations or things I’ve experimented with. All are delicious!

How I started this website ...

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine told me about starting up a website business. She showed me some of the monthly checks she was receiving. Wow, I thought, What about me? This would be an easy way to share my recipes! I loved working on the computer. I loved cooking. Why not marry the two?

SBI! Case Studies In fact, as soon as I signed up with Site Build It!, I decided to go to Bible College full-time. During that time, I followed the Action Guide, and my site was up quickly and soon I started making money. And that all during studying, researching term papers, and doing projects for school!

Perhaps you're saying, "What about me?". It’s ideal for a stay-at-home Mom, a retiree, or anyone whose interested in making money. Don’t know what to do the site on? Don’t let that stop you. They’ll walk you through that process as well.


Not quite sure if you can tackle this yourself, or if you want to check me out a bit further, go to my own Fulson Web Publishing company ... and let me help you!
