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.

Fire Evacuation

I was jarred out of bed by an automated phone call an hour ago.

Our house is in a "highly recommended" volunteer evacuation zone for a wildfire in high winds.

Hubby is off to work and kids are off to school. They are all well out of fire danger.

I'm spending some time packing up a two-week supply of medication and our birds and such.

My parents live nearby and are likely canceling their weekend travels plans, so if evacuation mores to mandatory, they will grab their cats and come get me.

I will NOT go to the evacuation center, rather to my husband's work, as that much neuro stimulation of people, movement, noise, as well as potential anaphylactic allergen exposure, would not make it a safe place for me.

I'm planning to bring my laptop if I need to leave, but not sure when I'll be able to update next. A post on monthly giveaway is auto-set to go up tomorrow morning. Otherwise, I'll try to check in with an "I'm safe" after this is over. Thanks for your prayers.
