Update: Stroke of Grace has become In Darkness Sing and has moved to JenniferSaake.com.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.

Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Stroke of Grace became In Darkness Sing in early 2018 and has moved, along with all five of Jennifer's active blogs, to one location at JenniferSaake.com.

Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.

They Came!

My new boots came today, a day earlier than I expected! I'm wearing them right now (yes, for those who know me in person, shock and surprise, actually in the house, and by choice!). I think I will replace the laces with elastic, so that it doesn't take me so long to try to get them off and on. I also want to look for some comfy, gel insoles for a little more support. Even though I can already thing of a couple minor upgrades I would like to make, I'm a little excited. Just saying. ;)

Kendra, I remembered the other thing I wanted to tell you. It may well be just hormonal cycles, but I was really, badly broken out around my nose and mouth, especially my chin, for a couple weeks, so deep and painful. On Saturday, I started wearing mineral makeup again (look for one without bismuth nor cornstarch) for the sun protection and have keep wearing mineral foundation ever since because by Monday it was already drying up the acne and I have hardly had any new zit since Saturday. The three or so new ones I have gotten have all been small and not deep or oozy or very sore! Just passing along for whatever it is worth.

Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 NASB
