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.

Happy New Year

It has been an entire month since I last posted. I don't think that has ever happened before.


The past month has included my mom's birthday, our son's 17th...


of course, Jesus' birthday celebration...


graduation from my intensive, advanced bonus therapy I undertook this fall...


a car accident (no one injured, our older car totaled - so we are only a one car family again, but thankfully still a three-living-children family! - no I was not in the car when this happened)...


...an overnight car trip to celebrate with Rick's side of the family...


4 airplane rides totalling around 11 hours in the air, a full Christmas week in Florida with many "firsts" that my early therapists could never have conceived I would ever even be able to attempt...


a New Year's Eve day "Christmas" with my parents...


and LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of very intense hours determinedly focused on book writing.


I typically strive to blog at least 3 times a week, but may be rather sparse in posting over the next couple months in dedicated effort to finally get this manuscript submitted!


I do hope to get more Florida pictures and stories posted in coming days.
