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. Here is her resume.

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.

Be a Banana Not THAT GIRL

Today's post is a video.


Definitely not a flawless presentation! When I get "thumbs down" on YouTube, please remind me that it's a rather decent presentation for someone who couldn't even swallow on her own or sit up, a little less than 5 years ago.


I nearly didn't even publish it because anyone who watches without knowing I'm a brain injury survivor, won't understand my bumpy presentation and reliance on the script. But I decided I just wanted to post my thoughts today through my reality of why I actually am, cognitively, today.


If you are wondering why I did not mention the name of my company or product, I intentionally made my presentation generic enough that it can be used by representatives of many different companies. Here's a presentation (notice the significant difference in my ability to present without trying to read from my written script!) I recorded a few days ago, about the business I had signed up for pre-stroke and have just become serious about again, in effort to earn my way to Mount Hermon Christian Writer's Conference in the spring! (If you have previously read my posts on money and on Lilla Rose, you will especially appreciate this effort.)

That correct product name of what I called "Beautiful Circle" is actually called "Lovely Circle."
