Name: Deanna

Nicknames: D-D, Dea, Beanie Butt (Mom called me that when I was a child until I was 11 or 12)

Home: Arizona (I was actually born here in Phoenix and am a missionary kid. My parents were missionaries to the Navajo indians when I was born until I was 5 years old and then we moved to St. Louis.) I can remember the wild mustangs on the reservations and we still have some wild horses near where we live now.

Family: Stephen is my husband of 17 years. He is also a missionary kid. He actually grew up in Ecuador and lived there for 10 years. He speaks fluent Spanish, which comes in very handy here in Arizona. Our family has been missionaries to Santo Domingo, Ecuador in 2005 and 2006 and are building a school there.
Our boys, Kevin and Timothy, both love participating in our exciting travels and sharing Christ's love with others.
We also have a wonderful half lab, mostly border collie 80 lbs. or so dog named Tupac. We didn't name him that. That was his name when we got him as a puppy from the pound, so it kind of stuck. He is a big sweetheart.

As you can see from the pictures, our family loves to travel, but within the past year, we haven't traveled far from home, because my pain with the Fibromyalgia has really become a challenge. I was also diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease in my lower back and neck and have no more soft cartilage left between my c-5 and c-6 vertibrae in my neck and the bones are now rubbing together, which causes alot of pain and discomfort. This is why I believe the Lord has led me to Sparkpeople for inspiration, encouragement, strength, guidance and friendship.

My favorite B ible verse is Isaiah 40:31 (from the Message Bible)
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind.

emoticon Dear Deanna, I'm so sorry your procedures did not go as planned. I am praying for you to get that Isaiah 40:31 strength soon so you can spread your wings and find your way back to us. We love you, D-D, and miss your friendly face in CWF.
emoticon to your DH Stephen for braving the SP pages and letting us know of your condition and need for prayer.

Gentle hugs,
Dotti
