In the darkest of times, God is still there, watching over the both of you. He hears your prayers and is working in your behalf. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. God will be true to His word. With the struggles you have, and all that you do, God will not forget your labor of love. You will make it. God will see to it!

Georgeanne from Hagerstown (June 24, 2014, 7:47 a.m.)


It brought tears when I read your latest post of "2 yrs. later". I admire you so much!! You encourage us with your scriptures. I love the paragraph of "faith abounds". We all are praying for that paragraph to come true. I know God is hearing the many prayers being said & I know He is touched! We love you & appreciate you very much!!

Christopher & Elisabeth Folkerts (Garreau) from Twin Falls, Idaho (Jan. 19, 2014, 11:43 p.m.)


We also check the website about once a week to stay informed. Thank you for the news. Our kids continually remind us and our whole church to pray for Dean. One of our kids prays for him every day. We will continue to pray!

Bill Garman from Troy, Ohio (Jan. 17, 2014, 3 a.m.)


Dannielle Thank you for the update on Dean's condition. I check the website each day or so to see if you have any new updates. The Lord does have a plan for Dean and you here on earth as we wait to go to Heaven and as we are not completely sure what that is the Lord will lead you though each day. I know you are Dean's hero here on this earth. You are in our prayers and thoghts each day.

Mike and Suzann Grimm from Falling Waters (Sept. 15, 2013, 9:15 p.m.)


Dannielle: Dean and you are always in our thoughts and prayers each and every day. Allow the light of Gods' healing presence to shine into your lives...cleansing, healing, refreshing and renewing you. He understands you completely and loves you perfectly. Peace be with you and know that others care. As always, thank you for keeping us updated.

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (Sept. 12, 2013, 10:17 a.m.)


I am so glad to see that you posted another update. The updates about Dean's progress mean a lot to me. Dannielle, you are a true blessing from God and it makes me feel better to know that Dean is being taken care of by such a beautiful and caring person...his adoring and loving wife. I'm looking forward to your next update and every one after that. You are both in my prayers and in my thoughts each and every day.

Georgeanne from Hagerstown, MD (Sept. 11, 2013, 11:25 a.m.)


My heart truly goes out to you reading your latest posting. There's not a day goes by I don't ask God to restore your precious husband to you - he could be a walking testimony of God's healing power! I know it's going to happen - in God's own time. In the meantime, we will continue to earnestly pray that God gives you the strength you need to face each new day. Love to you both!!

Jodi Judge from Roanoke, VA (Sept. 11, 2013, 10:27 a.m.)


Hey there! I have been a friend of MaryAnn and Jeff Werle since I was very young. This is how I came to hear about you and Dean's story. I am grown now and work as a Certified Brain Injury Specialist Case Manager in the Roanoke Area. I read your recent update and noticed that you mentioned Dean losing his sense of taste. I recently ordered a book for a current client of mine called "Navigating Smell and Taste Disorders" (Neurology Now Books)that was recommended by her doctor. I was able to order it through Amazon for her. I felt that I should pass that along to you all :) May God continue to bless you and Dean. He is forever Faithful! In Him, Jodi

Vonnie from Greencastle (Aug. 28, 2013, 12:47 p.m.)


I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I cannot feel it. I believe in God even when He is silent.

Christopher & Elisabeth Folkerts (Garreau) from Twin Falls, Idaho (Aug. 4, 2013, 10:18 p.m.)


Our church here in Idaho still praying for you faithfully.

Jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (July 11, 2013, 10:24 a.m.)


Hi Dannielle, My thoughts and prayer's continue to be with you. I think of you everyday. I am still believing with you for that Miracle for Dean. Our God is able to exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think. Love Jackie

Meldy Santiago from Bulacan, Philippines (June 15, 2013, 10:38 a.m.)

Amazing pictures! Thank you so much for sharing them with everyone.

Hello I was driving the Engine the day of Deans wreck,this is the first being on this page. I am glad to see that he is doing so well and I hope and pray he is able to get back to the way he was before the wreck.So many things run through your mind when you respond to emergency calls and to know what he was faced with that day a year it awsome to know he has come as far as he has in this amount of time and to know the support he has. Ray Mowen Jr. FF/EMT MMP&W Fire Dept.

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (June 11, 2013, 10:14 a.m.)


Thank you so much for the update. I think of you and Dean often. Your faith and outlook are so inspiring. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos that were taken on your 1-year anniversary. You are an inspiration to me. Dean couldn't have chosen anyone better than you. I remember the look in his eyes when he told me that he was getting married. He was so happy and quickly showed me your picture. Bless both of you and your families and may God continue to give you strength.

Rosy Martin from Greencastle (June 11, 2013, 9:24 a.m.)


Your blog is sooo inspiring ! You have a testimony like no other. So many of us would wallow in self pity if our dreams were dashed like yours was. Dean is one fortunate man to have you for his wife.

Jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (June 11, 2013, 8:54 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Your update on Dean brought tears to my eyes. What a precious wife you are to Dean, and an inspiration to all of us who read your updates. I know you bring joy to the heart of the Lord by your constant faith and trust in Him. I continue to stand with you in prayer for Deans complete healing. Love Jackie

Brandon and Rebecca S. from Morgan City (June 10, 2013, 8:17 p.m.)


Dean/Danielle, I remember that day well. You had a beautiful wedding! Thank you for sharing about your anniversary. It is a blessing to hear of the progress Dean is making! Looking to see God restore Dean and restore the sweetness and closeness in your marriage that was taken away by the accident. With Love and Prayers, Brandon and Rebecca S.

Praying for you and Dean today... thinking of you often friend!

Linda pastor from Wilmington (May 29, 2013, 11:19 a.m.)


You are heroic and a true inspiration. Your story needs to be shared. Have you contacted redbook or ladies home journal.

Jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (May 23, 2013, 8:10 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and Dean at this time. Still trusting and believing with you for that Miracle. Love Jackie

bertie martin from south mountain pa (May 6, 2013, 9:31 p.m.)

Rena from Mercersburg (May 5, 2013, 11:25 a.m.)


Happy 1st anniversary!!! Rachel and I drove by last week while you were trimming the shrubbery in front of your home. We think about you both often and encourage you to keep shining; because that is what you're doing! Excellent example girl!!! Thank you very much!

Corliss Cloninger from Conesus, NY (May 1, 2013, 11:41 p.m.)


Praying tonight that God will strengthen you, comfort you, and draw into that peaceful place under the shadow of His wing. Love you.

Julia Ziegler from Lititz, PA (April 8, 2013, 10:52 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, You are a beautiful example of complete faith in God's goodness and mercy in the most difficult of circumstances. You continue to encourage me and so many others as you draw close to the heart of God and exude such peace and rest as you hope and wait on the Lord for complete healing and restoration in Dean's life. It's truly wonderful to hear the updates and I laugh and cry as you share your stories. I will continue to pray for you and Dean and the rest of the family as you look to the Lord for wisdom and direction in all things and believe that the Lord has amazing things in store for you and Dean! I heard a saying which I thought was encouraging..."When God is silent, He is not still." He is still working even when we can't always see what He's doing. "The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:28-31

Candice from Hagerstown (March 25, 2013, 5:54 p.m.)


I think of you and Dean often and am so glad to hear about the progress he is making. Love and continued prayers for you both. xo

Jeremy from Alabama (March 19, 2013, 12:40 p.m.)


Wow! Thank the Lord for an amazing report. Glad to hear Dean is doing so well. God has chosen to begin this miracle and I'm looking forward to seeing Him finish Dean's healing!

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (March 19, 2013, 8:27 a.m.)


Thanks for the update. "The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it." (I Thessalonians 5:24)

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (March 18, 2013, 9:31 a.m.)


Thank you so much for the update. I think about you and Dean every day. I'm glad to hear about his progress. I will constantly keep both of you in my prayers.

Rosalind Martin from Clear Spring Md (March 16, 2013, 12:47 p.m.)


I have bee reading each journal which you post. You have been a great inspiration for me as I sense your strength through Christ. You see I was diagnosed with cancer in May of 2012 and my journey has also given me a new strength through other Christians and the word of God. Leon and I have known the Shenberger family for years- we were farming neighbors when the children were young, and of course we were much youger back then also !! God continue to give you strength.

Jessica M. from Ct (March 7, 2013, 9:54 p.m.)


Wish I lived close enough to bring a meal. Praying for you tonight.

Sue S from New Jersey (March 7, 2013, 7:45 a.m.)


Please can we have an update? We haven't had one in so long and are wondering how Dean is progressing and also how YOU are doing, Dannielle. God bless you both!

Jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (Feb. 28, 2013, 8:14 a.m.)


Hi Dannielle, I continue to stand with you for a complete healing for Dean. I believe the Lord is going to do it. Keep on believing, Keep hope in your heart. I love the meaning of the word hope. "A desire with and expectation of fulfillment". Love Jackie

Susan DArby-Ellis from Salem,Jamaica (Feb. 23, 2013, 7:10 a.m.)


The Lord is able to do things...depend solely upon him... Praying for you both..

Thelma H., HS from Mt. Pleasant Mills, PA (Feb. 13, 2013, 8:28 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, I just read your last entry posted about Dean's progress. It is exciting to hear of his progress. I think of you often and continue to pray for his healing and for strength for you each day.

Hershel and Ann Davis from Essex, MD (Feb. 9, 2013, 8:30 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle,Dean and family, We haven't written in a while, this year has been flying by. I lost my father and a dearest friend in January and now am trying very hard to enable my Mom to live at home, rather than in nursing home. Reading your posts let me know that my trials are so small. Your faith and patience just amaze me. We share your testimony with many of our friends who do not even know you....they ask often as though you are family. Thank you for taking the time to share your journey, it helps us to know how to pray for you and to keep our own trials in perspective. We request prayer for you every service in Essex. You are constantly in our hearts and prayers.

John and Susan Romero from Escondido Calif. (Feb. 8, 2013, 1:19 a.m.)


Dear Dean and Dannielle and the Shenberger family, We are praying for a complete recovery. Praying for strength and hope and grace to fill your days. We love you. We missed you, Dean and family at our meeting in Nov. It wasn't the same without you all. Just know that some saints in California are praying. Your updates are an encouragement to us. Encourages us to keep on looking to God who never fails.

Jodie from Jonesville, LA (Feb. 6, 2013, 11:39 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I have not sent anything for a while, though I have been keeping updated on Dean's progress. I rejoice at the progress he has made and pray earnestly that the Lord will complete his healing in His will and His way. I pray also for you that the Lord will continue to strengthen you as you go about this awesome task that the Lord has entrusted you with. There is so much I want to say, but cannot seem to express in words. Please know that the whole congregation in Jonesville is holding on with you for Dean's complete healing. The children will at times ask the congregation to not forget Dean in prayer. He is always on our minds and in our hearts, as are you. With much love and prayer,

Rena from Mercersburg (Feb. 6, 2013, 9:42 a.m.)


Hi there, Still thinking about you both and praying.

Amy Beachy from Manheim, PA (Jan. 29, 2013, 1:08 p.m.)


I just wanted to say hello and let you know that I never cease to pray for you, Dean and the family daily. Blessings to you!

Barb Miller from Malawi (Jan. 19, 2013, 9:44 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I have not written to you once but I've prayed for you pretty much every day since Dean's accident. Because of my time in rehab I can picture some of the things you need to do, like transferring Dean in and out of bed. I'm praying for his eyesight and short-term memory to be restored and for his walking to improve. I also pray for you, for strength, endurance, encouragement, and that you will have the support you need. I also pray that God will be glorified through you and Dean. Your last update was a tear-jerker and moved me to write at last. Thank you for writing and being so honest about what is happening and your feelings about it all. This certainly is not the life you dreamed of having. Dear, dear Dannielle, you are a testimony to the grace of God and a witness to Christians, non-Christians, and the spirit world of what the power of God can do. You are in a very difficult situation but you are being victorious! We are so proud of you. You're an inspiration to the rest of us to keep on keeping on. Blessings, Barb, for Doug too

Rachel Nichols from Mercersburg (Jan. 17, 2013, 11:17 p.m.)


Happy to hear of your journey's progress. You two have come so far and embody God's love and will. May the One who was a source of blessing for our ancestors, bring blessings of healing upon Dean and Dannielle, a healing of body and a healing of spirit. May those in whose care they are entrusted be gifted with wisdom and skill, and those who surround them be gifted with love and trust, openness and support in their care. And may they be healed along with all those who are in need. Blessed are You, Source of healing.

Dennis "Manzy" Phillips from Fredericksburg, VA (Jan. 16, 2013, 10:44 a.m.)


God bless you, Danielle, and all yours and Dean's family for being faithful, caring and loving one another. May God's love and the encouragement you get from everyone - familiy and friends, continue to give you that perfect peace as your mind is stayed on the Lord. It blesses my heart to read of your love for Dean and makes me want to be a better persom nyself in serving the Lord. I pray for your dialy strength and courage. May God bless you, Dean and all your family.

jane hause from waynesboro, Pa. (Jan. 15, 2013, 2:47 a.m.)


Thank you Dannielle for sharing about Day 1...I was curious about the events that led up to the accident....It must be terribly difficult that he doesn't quite remember you. You will remain in my prayers.

Jackie from Lima, NY (Jan. 14, 2013, 12:28 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, My prayers continue to be with you daily. It was good to read your update today. My prayer is for the Grace and Peace of God to be your portion, as you take care of Dean, and for complete healing for Dean. There is nothing to hard or impossible for our God. Healing IS the children's bread. You are amazing Dannielle. Love Jackie

Hannah Calef from CT (Jan. 11, 2013, 11:52 a.m.)


Just wanted to say my husband, Pete and I are still praying for y'all! (I met Dean at the SUMMIT in Ohio a couple years ago) We look forward to seeing/hearing how God is continuing to work in your lives! Dannielle, your testimony has been a huge encouragement to me! May God bless you for your faithfulness.

Sue S from New Jersey (Jan. 8, 2013, 6:26 a.m.)


I continue to pray and hope you are adjusting to your new life and that progress is being made. Is there a chance of getting an update, please? Thank you and God be with you both.

Mike Grimm from Falling Waters (Jan. 4, 2013, 2:25 p.m.)


Hi Danielle and Dean: You two are always on our minds and in our daily prayers. It was so good to hear the news that you got to bring Dean home. Was reading in our daily devotionals and God wanted us to learn a new habit....saying each day,'I trust you, Jesus" in response to whatever happens each day in our lives. We know that you are a true example of this, Danielle and are a true child of God. We pray for your strength and that you continually receive His blessings gratefully, knowing they flow directly from His hands of grace. God bless you and Dean. Really miss him at Whitetail. Continued blessings to all.

brenda from sudan (Jan. 4, 2013, 1:32 a.m.)

Barbara Flannery from Rush, New York (Dec. 22, 2012, 11:08 a.m.)


You don't know me, but I have been praying for Dean and you, Dannielle, since I first heard about his accident. I just read that you both will be home for Christmas and God bless you both always. You, Dannielle, have done the very best that any wife could do and I greatly admire you for all you have done for Dean. I am sure, very sure, it has not been easy. I wish you both a very Merry, Blessed Christmas and the very best wishes for 2013. You did it, you got yourselves, home for Christmas!!!

regina (kinslow) thompson from allegan,mi (Dec. 21, 2012, 5:52 p.m.)

Jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (Dec. 18, 2012, 9:19 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and Dean. I pray the New Year will bring New Beginnings for you both. I am still believing for that Miracle. I think of the scripture in the Ps:"I would have fainted lest I had seen the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living".I pray you see with your eyes the goodness of the Lord bringing Healing and Restoration to Dean. I love you Dannielle. You are an inspiration to us all. Jackie

Duane Arch from Maugansville, MD (Dec. 7, 2012, 3:20 p.m.)


Dannielle, you and Dean are both in my daily thoughts and prayers. The battle is His, Victory is ours, and Victory is sweet! Just remember He won't give you more that you can bear and although it seems tough, He will never leave you nor forsake you! Stay encouraged that God will see you thru this.

Larry & Dianne from Falling Waters, WV (Dec. 6, 2012, 9 p.m.)


Dear Dean & Dannielle, May God bless you all as we all continue to press for this great victory. We thank the Lord for all the progress Dean has made.

You can rest assured, all the Saints are holding both of you up in their prayers. We love both of you so much!!

dear dean,dannielle and your family. my thoughts and prayers are with you now as you rely onthe lord for the strength to endure.may dean ,s needs be met.andtouched by the tender hands of the lord. may god bless you all.

Joy A from Escondido, CA (Dec. 1, 2012, 3:08 p.m.)


Dear Sis. Dannielle; God has brought you both this far by faith, and he isn't about to abandon you now. this is yet another test of your faith. Don't get weary in the battle. Just remember this, once you commit it to God the battle is no longer yours, for you've given it to Him. Your job is to just continue to trust God, knowing that: He is in control, that he will never leave you nor forsake you, that he loves you. That he will not give you more than you can bear. That he would not allow this test to come if he didn't think that you were ready to take this next step in your journey of faith. That he knows the plans that he has for you, plans to prosper you, not to hinder you. I believe that Dean has made all the progress that he has made is because you are reaping the reward, or the fruits of never ceasing to praise God no matter what comes your way. Your blogs are such a blessing, they always begin with praise and thanskgiving even though the way has been rough, and uncertain. As you commit yourseves into his hands, and submit to his plan, you can trust him and rest in his peace knowing that his way is best. Just continue to do as you have been doing. TRUST: You have trusted in his word, and stood on his promises that cannot fail. PRAISE: God wants to hear your voice when the wisest man has spoken and said that your circumstances are as hopeless as can be, that's when God wants to hear you sing. THANKFULNESS: Is the key that opens the windows of heaven for spiritual blessings to fall freely on you, it opens up the treasure house of heaven, it moves the hand of God. God wants to bless a heart full of gratitude. Considering Dean's head injury, and how long he was in a coma, it is the greatest miracle of all that Dean still has a knowledge of God, loves God, and has a mind to serve God, and that he is able to express this to you. And that he remembers you and his family. God has brought Dean through so many hurdles, and I stand in awe at the miracles that have already taken place. We must never cease to praise him for what he has already done. Keep trusting God one day at a time. God is still on his throne, and Jesus is still sitting at his right hand making intercession for us. For we are not our own, we are bought with a price, therfore glorify God in your body and spirit which are Gods. I Cor. 6:19,20. God bless you and all those that are fasting and praying for Dean's complete recovery. I am praying that God will continue to give you the spiritual, and physical strength that you will need each day. Sis. Joy

Jenifer from Harrisburg Hospital (Nov. 30, 2012, 12:53 p.m.)

Dear Dannielle, Dean and Family, We are still praying daily for all of you and staying up on the good progress reports. Thank you so much for those, Dannielle, they are such a blessing and help us to know how to pray more fervently. We will be traveling all day on Friday, so will not sign in for a particular slot, but will certainly be agreeing in prayer in a special way on that day. Stay encouraged, God is still able to grant a full recovery!

He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places. He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze." -Ps. 18:32-34 (NKJV)

Dear, dear Dannielle... As I read your message this evening I am just so excited to hear the progress Dean is making. We serve a Wonderful Lord. He's our Maker, Redeemer, Deliverer and Healer, and He's all of that for Dean. We are seeing God's healing power and you are witnessing it right before your very eyes. "Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so." AND soon we will be hearing Dean express all that the Lord has done in and through him during this time. You Dannielle are a wonderful, precious nurse to Dean and his dear wife. Your love along with the Lord's healing power will bring him through this. Love you & praying for you both.

At this stage, no news is good news. I rejoice to realize updates are fewer and far between because Dean is needing his faithful companion by his side in new ways, improving every day! :) "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.

My Dear Son-in-law, Dean and my wonderful Daughter, Dannielle. From the moment Donnie, Dannielle and I prayed at the printing shop minutes after the accident, I had an overwhelming sense of peace that all would be well. Nothing about the accident seemed well or peaceful. Julie also made a comment about the peace she had, that all would be well. I want to Thank the Lord for His love and His word as it is the final authority. May you, Dean and Dannielle find blessings that neither one of you could ever imagine. I love you both dearly. Love Mom

Dear Dannielle and Dean, It is great to hear that you were able to spend Dean's Birthday together yesterday. Let him know that we think about him everyday, and wish him a blessed year ahead, with new beginnings and experiences with his wonderful wife by his side. Please tell him that your Whitetail family continues to pray for you both each day. We are so happy to hear of Dean's new eating behaviors and his jabbering, I am sure he is going to have a lot to share when he is fully speaking again. We look forward to seeing you both soon. If there is anything we can do to help please let us know. We love you both very much and are glad you are making your journey back home together.

Sherry DeShong (Denny's wife) from Harrisonville Pa (Oct. 5, 2012, 11:38 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I have not had internet service recently, so have just now been blessed to read the recent updates. Happy belated Birthday Dean! What a miracle God is working everyday! Dannielle you are Gods' angel while He continues to do His healing in Deans' body! Dean has made more progress in your loving hands than anywhere else! He is responding to your love & coming back to you dear one! God, love & family has amazing healing power that is impossible for anyone else to provide! There is no substitute or medicine that can work such miracles in someones' life! As a nurse, I have been blessed to see the power of God & love of family work more than ANYTHING anyone can prescribe! It is proof of Gods' love & miracles that even those who doubt cannot deny! Sometimes, I think that God uses those situations to bring others who witness it to know Him & develop a relationship with Him. They witness it with their own eyes, & it becomes real, undeniable, that yes, there is a God, & he has just worked a miracle in their life! :) These situations, hardships, turn into a blessing, even though we don't know or recognize it at the time until we are beyond it. I have had the blessings of such things in my life & am SO grateful to God! During the most impossible of times, it IS possible with God! Without Him, it is impossible! You & Deans' family embody that incredible love of God! What a wonderful gift Dean, you & his family are blessing all of us with in your testimony & your strength in God! I have prayed daily that if God needs someone in heaven, to please allow me to stand in Deans' place. And I say that truthfully & with all my heart! You & Dean have so much living & beautiful things to share together, & you have just begun! The sound of little feet running across the floor & into your arms, birthdays, anniversarys, memories to make & love to celebrate! God has blessed me with ALL of those things in my life, & for that I am eternally grateful & ready to go if He would but take me so that you & Dean might have ALL of those same wonderful blessings! I wish all of those blessings for you & Dean dear Dannielle! There are no two people that are more deserving of all the blessings that God has to offer! Your love & faithfullness in God are wonderous! Thank you for being an inspiration & blessing to all of us! GOD BLESS YOU ALL as you continue in His strength. :)

Maria Laing from Lima, Ohio (Oct. 5, 2012, 3:52 a.m.)

Dear Sis Dannielle..Everytime I've read your notes about Dean,my heart was touched that drawn my knees to kneel before God.So many times I wanted to give you an encouraging words , but I was the one who was encourage with the faith that you displayed in handling the hard situation of your loving husband. All I can say now is,even though we are far and haven't met yet ..but we are one in spirit..longing and begging God's miraculous healing over Dean's body."God is always present,even sometimes we feel He is absent.God bless you:)

Marelin K. Sites from Greencastle Pa (Sept. 27, 2012, 3 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle and Dean, I pray the move closer to home brings you both comfort and peace. It will be so wonderful to have your families close by for support and encouragement. My prayer continues to be for a total healing of Dean's body and the life you both planned not so very long ago as you walked down the aisle to meet the love of your life. Have faith in God's love for you both and know that He is there to provide you with all the comfort and strength you need. 2 Corinthians 1:3

Stay true to the will of God and the belief of MIRACLE'S. God bless to a very loving and devoted couple. Keep believing, one day things will be as good as they were when you first married. Good Luck!

Jodie Crooks from Jonesville, Louisiana (Sept. 26, 2012, 11:05 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, My tears are flowing with yours. Each time I read your posts I can almost feel the hope in you of Dean's full recovery. I believe, oh yes, I firmly believe that the Lord is going to restore Dean to full health. Don't lose hope, don't give up, hold onto the faith that you have and nurture it like a tiny little tender plant. Remember, even when He is four days late, God is still RIGHT ON TIME!! With much love and unending prayers, Jodie Crooks

Claudia Vogrin from Indiana (Sept. 26, 2012, 5:01 a.m.)


Dear Danielle, I thank the Lord for having such a Godly wife for Dean. And he is a man of God who deserves a wife who walks with God. You are a beautiful couple who glorify Jesus together. It is so encouraging seeing the progress Dean is making. It's one step at a time, but in the right direction. I am praying that you will get the bigger bed to sleep beside him again. I think it will be very comforting and healing for Dean. God is faithful!! With Love, Claudia Vogrin

Linda M Shull from Warsaw, IN (Sept. 26, 2012, 1:04 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, It is so good that you have found a place closer to home. I hope and pray that everyone will do their part so you can do yours and Dean and you will both be restored. Keep on trusting. Your blogs are very encouraging and I know you are on a tough road. Keep looking up and God will sustain you.

Joyce Stamper from Hagerstown, MD (Sept. 25, 2012, 8:01 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, On your most recent comment Sept. 25,you mentioned "Even in the darkest times we must believe the truth of God's love. Like the stars, God is present when we don't see him! This brought back so many memories of what happened to my 2nd, son 20 years ago. His name was Christopher and he was 8 1/2years old. He and Devin were best friends. He and Matt were not to cross Virginia Ave.on their bikes. While I was working on the side porch the started across the street and I heard a sound I saw Chris laying on the side of the road--he was not responding-He was taken to the hospital; but they flew him to John Hopkins. We spent 10 days there and they woke me up at midnight saying he was brain dead. We lost him and that was the hardest thing I ever went through. He had just gotten saved at school a few days before: so I know he went to heaven. I'm saying this to let you know I feel with you; for I know the burden you feel, and my heart and prayers go out to you. I was so happy I got to know you, and you amaze me at the spiritual strength you have shown. May God continue to hold you up. I love both of you very much and I'm praying for a miracle for Dean. KEEP HOLDING ON!

Sis. Joyce Stamper from Hagerstown, Md. (Sept. 25, 2012, 7:16 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, My heart was touched when I read what you wrote on Day 99. You said :"Clouds may come and cover beautiful moments. However clouds are temporary for we know the stars still shine even though we no longer see their sparkling lights reflecting in the eyes of our beholder. Even in the darkest times we must believe the truth of God's love. Like the stars, God is present when we don't see him.

Dan Johnston from chambersburg (Sept. 24, 2012, 6:56 p.m.)


Hello, I am a friend of Tom & Heidi Trate. My wife Marcia & I will be praying for you and Dean. Trusting the the Lord will bring healing and His name will be glorified. God's Blessing on both of you! Dan

NANETTE PENTZ from Five Forks Pa (Sept. 20, 2012, 7:37 p.m.)

Ann Davis from Essex, MD (Sept. 20, 2012, 3:26 p.m.)


Dear Danielle and Dean, I haven't checked on you in a few days and what wonderful progress seems to be happening. Hersh and I pray for you every day and request prayer in Essex every service. God is so good! We are looking to the day when you two will walk out of the hospital and into the church together....oh I want to be there!!

Donna Kauffman from Harrisonville, PA (Sept. 20, 2012, 2:34 p.m.)


Hello dear Dannielle, Aww, my heart is so broken as I read today! I've been following your story and earnestly praying and caring. I can't begin to fathom the deep, deep sorrow you have faced in this most devastating, painful situation! You and your beloved Dean so belong together for a life-long of wedded bliss. You were/are so lovely together. Yes, the storms change us! You're beautiful testimony of how Jesus is changing you is so breathtaking. I marvel at His strength in you when you have been so weak. A few verses come to my mind that have been placed there through my own journey of joy and grief... So unlike yours, yet so real... I trust you can take these pieces of the precious Word and make them YOURS. Spoken right into your heart by our loving Savior. His heart is broken with yours! He's weeping with you. He cares more deeply than any of us care for you! Isaiah. 41:13  Example:  My daughter, Dannielle, I am YOUR God,.  I am holding your hand and saying to you, My daughter, don’t be afraid, I will help you.   Exodus 3:7  And the LORD said, I have seen your affliction, my daughter, and have heard your cry; and I know your sorrows.   Deuteronomy 33:12  I will cover you all day long, dear daughter, Dannielle, and you will shall dwell between My shoulders.   Deuteronomy 33:27  I am your eternal God.  I am your refuge, dear daughter, and underneath you are My everlasting arms:   Revelations 8:4  And the smoke of the incense, which came with your prayers, ascended up before Me out of the angel’s hand, my daughter, Dannielle.   Isaiah. 42:16  I will lead you in paths that you have not known: I will make darkness light before you, dear daughter, and make these crooked things straight.  These things will I do for you. and I will not forsake you.   Exodus 33:14  My presence, My dear daughter, Dannielle, will go with you, and I will give you rest. Isaiah 49:16  My daughter, Dannielle, I have graven You on the palms of My hands.   Psalm 91:4  I will cover you with My feathers, and under My wings you can trust (rest).   Zephaniah 3:17  I take great delight in you, My daughter, I will quiet you with My love, I will rejoice over you with singing.    Isaiah 41:10  Don’t be afraid, I am with you.  Don’t be dismayed; I am your God: I will strengthen you, dear daughter; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with My righteous hand.   Psalm 31:7  I saw your affliction and know the anguish of your soul, My dear daughter.    2Kings 20:5  I have heard your prayers, dear Dannielle, I have seen your tears: behold, I will heal you.   I Peter 5:10  And, I, your God of all grace, after you have suffered a little while, will Myself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.    Isaiah 43:1  For I have redeemed you, Dannielle, I have called you by your name; you are mine.   Isaiah  40:11  I will feed you who are in my flock like a shepherd: I will gather you, My little lamb with My arm, and carry you in My bosom (heart), and I will gently lead you.   Those are a few very personal and precious messages from our caring Shepherd written for you, Dannielle. I trust Jesus will pierce your sweet spirit with these precious words and minister to you in even greater ways of His deep compassion and tender mercy and redeeming love for you his precious daughter! Please know that I care and care and care. I learned about your situation from Eldon Martin who attends our church and works with someone who knows you. Love you, dear! Donna Kauffman Psalm 91:1,2  "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."  

Family Kriek from SA from Nairobi (Sept. 19, 2012, 11:31 a.m.)

Remember, the same waves that were over the disciple's heads were under the Master’s feet.

jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (Sept. 19, 2012, 9:20 a.m.)


Good Morning Danielle, The Lord's loving kindnesses indeed never cease. His compassion's they fail not, they are new every morning. I continue to stand with you in prayer, believing for strength for you as you continue to fight for Dean. Our God is still a Miracle working God and He is in the fight with you and His army of prayer warriors continue to stand and believe for complete healing for Dean. Who's report will we believe? We will believe the report of the Lord. Much love Jackie

Judy Boyd from Whitetail (Sept. 19, 2012, 8:47 a.m.)

Helen from Lima, NY (Sept. 18, 2012, 8:52 p.m.)


Dearest Dannielle, Thank you sooo much for sharing your journey with us. It keeps us, not only up-to-date, but also in constant prayer for complete healing for Dean and strength for you in the process. So wonderful to hear each step that Dean is taking. Expecting more & more progress DAILY!! Continuing to believe that the Lord is restoring Dean completely... in HIS timing. We don't understand HIS plan, but we know it is a much higher plan than we can ask OR even think. Each picture you post helps us to know Dean better, but I just love the one of you holding hands... so precious... Much Love, Helen

Bonnie L Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (Sept. 18, 2012, 6:21 p.m.)


PATIENCE: Patience is not a desperate waiting in doubt, but a hopeful waiting in confidence. How well Dean, his family, friends and Dean's beloved wife know waiting, being hopeful and having confidence that they serve a Mighty God that can and will do super natural healing not of man or of this earth, but of the Holy Spirit which is what works in us. Last night on the 700 club. They had a story about a christian family that was in a horrible accident, their daughter was the one that received the most trauma. The doctors did not expect her to live. As her friends and and church family heard of this they began to pray ( much like we have been praying for Dean) as her family were them self being released form the hospital of their injuries they would sit by her bed and pray and encourage keeping a watchful eye on her needs both spiritually and medically. ( much like Dean's beloved wife does) It was a long journey, she had to learn everything from the beginning through therapy . The one thing that her mother said was that the journey seemed long but day by day she improved, and with a very strong deep down Holy Spirit filled endurance. The Lord had given her everything she needed to run the race and finish a victor. Now here is the beauty of this story she is now this beautiful healed young woman that is talking, walking, enjoying a restored and renewed life. She is speaking to small and large groups of people about her journey and how the power of prayer and God's miracle has healed her broken body and mind to glorify the Father. As I listened to this I felt a burst of joy , for I thought of Dean and I could see him being restored and renewed and speaking to others about his journey and how much he would be thrilled and joyful to glorify God this way. Dannielle speaks so often of the love and patience that Dean showed her, I am sure that in these 90 some days, patience is something she surely has deep with in her core. But with her faith, her hopeful, believing waiting in confidence she knows and stands firm for Dean's "RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS". Dear sweet, sweet, Lord I lift up Dean to you Father, and I thank you for what you are doing in him, and Lord when the Dr's say anything that is not positive for Dean's restoration to be healed and whole we do not agree with that cause we serve a Mighty God that knew us before we were in the womb and He is able, yes our God is able to mend and restore anything that is broken in our earthly bodies. As I pray for Dean, I am believing a renewal for him daily. And Father I lift Dannielle up to you and ask that you continue to build her up give her the strength, courage and faith that she needs to continue in this journey that has many valley's, let her see the light at the end of the tunnel, those glorious mountain tops where we will all lift our hands up in praise and and thank You Father God, for Dean's total healing. Lord please be with this awesome couples parents, and family and friends comfort then and give them peace that Dean is Your child , You love him very much, You are with him , Father you have done much already and will continue to do more. Thank you Dear Father, we love and adore You, and praise Your name always. Amen \0/

Kathy Helm from Whitetail (Sept. 16, 2012, 9:06 p.m.)


Sounds like Dean is making progress with God's help and your devotion. Dean is always in my prayers.

Kristy from Oriskany Falls, NY (Sept. 15, 2012, 12:25 p.m.)


Giving God praise for the continued work of miracles for you and Dean. Thank you for your insightful words. How encouraging to read of the unfathomable love of the Lord in your lives. May you both be blessed with grace, peace and joy in the journey.

Claudia Vogrin from Indiana (Sept. 14, 2012, 9:30 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Thank you for the updates on Dean. I look forward to checking to see what the Lord is doing, and what we need to continue to pray for. Dean is such a wonderful man, and you are truly God's gift to him. God has prepared you for such a time as this. May He be glorified as we watch and see His healing power. In His Love, Claudia Vogrin

Brandon and Rebecca from Morgan City, AL (Sept. 14, 2012, 10:15 a.m.)


Danielle, Dean and family, we continue to hold you all up in prayer daily. This scripture keeps coming to my mind. "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward."--Hebrews 10:35. May we all hold our confidence in God. I have seen God come though in amazing ways as his people held on in faith and confidence. Praise the Lord that Dean has made all the progress he has made! Looking for God to Restore Dean. - Brandon, Rebecca and Family

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Sept. 13, 2012, 11:22 p.m.)


Hi Dannielle! It has been awhile since I wrote. I am so excited to hear the progress going on. The Lord is faithful. I am having some issues of my own health wise, right now and that is why I have gotten behind. Keep hanging in there and trust the One who will deliver us to Him one day. God bless and I'll keep praying.

Tiffany from Chambersburg, PA (Sept. 13, 2012, 10:07 a.m.)


You don't know me, but I've been reading your updates since Dean's accident. I want you to know that I'm still praying for him (and you as well)! The Lord sees your faithfulness and He sees your pain... neither of you have been forgotten! I pray God's peace and strength rests over you today. I am really looking forward to the day when we get to read that update that says Dean has been healed... I believe our God can do it. :) Until then, we praise Him for the good He has already done!

Elisabeth Hageman from Canada (Sept. 12, 2012, 8:48 p.m.)


Amen!!! So encouraging to hear about the wonderful things the Lord is doing - greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done! My love to you and Dean!

Elena Mom from mercersburg, PA 17236 (Sept. 12, 2012, 12:44 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I really miss you and love the picture of you and Dean holding hands. Psalms 103:3 tells me He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. 13: The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. 19: The Lord has made the heaven his throne; from there he rules over everthing. 22: Prasie the Lord, everything he has created, everywhere in his kingdom. As for me---I, too, will praise the Lord. Amen Dannielle you are such a servant of the Lord and I, as your mother ask for the Lord to honor and bless you in your obedience here on this earth, as you walk daily moment by moment with the Lord. You have not given up, Dean must know and feel hope in his spirit. May we all see the healing process exceed what anyone of us can understand or imagine. May each of us cry out with praises and give the Lord ALL of the honor and glory.....Thank you Lord for your loving kindness and your healing for Dean. I love you Lord... love your Mom

Ashley & Toby from Mechanicsburg, PA (Sept. 12, 2012, 11:56 a.m.)


Such wonderful news to hear that Dean is breathing on his own! Thoughts and prayers with you and Dean daily. xoxo

Shannon from York Hospital (Sept. 12, 2012, 9:37 a.m.)


I'm not sure if you remember me but I had the pleasure of being Dean's Respiratory Therapist during his stay at York Hospital. It's so lovely to be able to come to this sight and read all about Dean's progression. Often, once our patients leave, we never hear of how they are doing and what strides they are making... so thank you Dannielle! As an RT, I was so happy to read that the trach is out!!! Woo hoo! Keep up the great work Dean! We're all rooting for you!

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (Sept. 11, 2012, 11:33 a.m.)


Dannielle, I don't know you but you must have been sent from heaven to be Dean's wife. You're a very special person. I read everything you write on a daily basis. Your writings should be bound together and put into a book. I know Dean through work. He is such a wonderful person. I think of you, Dean and both of your families every day and also keep you in my prayers.

Rachel Nichols from Mercersburg, PA (Sept. 10, 2012, 1:46 p.m.)


You are in my continued thoughts and prayers. Especially today, when it is so beautiful outside. I told my friends today that this is what I call "God's day," although aren't they all! Dannielle's updates are so appreciated, especially since we know they take her away from the side of her beloved. Dannielle, you too need to feel some sunshine on your face and breath in the fresh air. To let God's natural beauties refresh your soul and to bring them back to Dean. I see the two of you on the path in the painting you shared.

Nancy Tirrell from Morgantown PA (Sept. 8, 2012, 12:59 p.m.)


Dannielle, Thank you so much for writing this blog and updating all who are praying. Every time I read it, I am encouraged. It is wonderful to know Dean is making progress, but it is also a huge blessing to read about what God is teaching you and see how you are glorifying Him and receiving comfort and peace that only He can give. I pray often for Dean's restoration and your continued stamina and strength.

De from Elkhorn, Nebraska (Sept. 7, 2012, 12:08 a.m.)


Dannielle- We have never met, but I met Dean at Heidi & Duane's wedding. (I was Heidi's roommate at the Academy). I have been praying since the first day and will continue to pray for you and Dean. You are in our thoughts every day, and we pray for Dean's recovery.

Christopher & Elisabeth (Garreau) Folkerts from Twin Falls, Idaho (Sept. 6, 2012, 11:01 p.m.)


Still praying!

Amy from Manheim, PA (Sept. 6, 2012, 10:13 p.m.)


Hi Dannielle, I am so happy to hear about all of the improvements that Dean is making. I am following you everyday and praying. What the Lord lays on your heart to write is an encouragement and blessing. I would like to come and meet you and Dean someday!

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (Sept. 4, 2012, 9:28 a.m.)


Ok here it goes. Last night I read Dannielle's post about the hot air balloon . I was so deeply touched and was so amazed how God guided her that day. i prayed for her and Dean as I always do after reading the post. Now I am always also looking for the signs of God and how He shows us things that are telling us I hear you and I am with you. Well this morning I went to my facebook page where I posted a picture of Dean and Dannielle's beautiful wedding picture asking my prayer warrior friends to pray for them. Right next to their picture was this beautiful picture of a field, sunset and these awesome hot air balloons the colors in this picture were just beautiful. I posted both of them on 8/28/12 not knowing how Dannielle felt about them. The quote with the picture was this. God is working things out for you even if you don't feel it. have faith and be thankful where faith and hope grows, miracles blossom never regret a day of your life. Good days give you happiness and bad days give you experience. both are essential in life. all are God's blessings. Before I posted this to my FB page I wrote,Blessing are many trials are few I would be nothing without You. I know you are working things out in my life , I thank you Daddy God. I want to do Your will and stand in Your Glory I thank you for your unconditional love and that I can freely praise You. I LOVE YOU DADDY. This really touched me this morning, I felt such a revelation of how the Father put this all together. Dannielle i would love you to be able to see this awesome picture maybe you could print it out and put up for You and Dean to see. It is on my FB page or you can go to Positive Inspirational Quotes. Father God, I thank you for Dean and Dannielle I ask that You continue to place Your healing hands upon Dean restore him to perfect health. Please be with Dannielle continue to give her the strength and courage that she needs to do what she has to do for the rights of her husband. Lord Dean and Dannielle are your precious ones I know that You are with them through this journey in the valley's and we will all rejoice with them as they reach the mountain tops. Father God thank You for your signs letting us know You are right beside us. Amen. \0/

Rose Marzan from Philippines (Sept. 2, 2012, 10:12 p.m.)

Adding our prayers to both Dean & Dannielle and their families. Christina & Jaimie Nowakowski (We worked with Dannielle at Whitetail)

Kristy Camp from Oriskany Falls, NY (Sept. 1, 2012, 3 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle and Dean, I continue to follow your progress. The daily ups and downs. Trials and triumphs. I continue to pray the grace of God for you both each day and for His marvelous healing power to bring about complete restoration to Dean. Both of you together are an amazing couple and the Lord is using this season of your lives to inspire so many for Him. God is truly making beautiful things out of your circumstances. Please know that you are loved by so many and we will continue to pray with you and believe. God is working miracles seen and unseen each and every day. It is great joy to share them with you. God bless and thank you for being so transparent.

Candace from Fallingwaters, wv (Sept. 1, 2012, 5:59 a.m.)


Happy belated birthday! I just want you to know how inspiring you are to me. From the first time that I met you I knew you had something special. Please know you and dean are in my prayers.

kathy from whitetail (Aug. 31, 2012, 8:31 a.m.)


i and the mtn hosts are still with you.

Jo-Anne from England (Aug. 30, 2012, 6:01 p.m.)


Dear Danielle. I heard about your husbands accident through a Christian forum I belong to. I have followed your journey and prayed for you both. The Lord is giving you tremendous grace and this trial has certainly proved your faith to be precious and genuine. I felt much empathy with you when reading your last entry. My first husband spent months in hospital and I faced what seemed to be a continual battle to truly advocate for him and protect him when he was unable to speak for himself. Be assured that the Lord will give you wisdom and grant you the courage you need to stand strong under very trying circumstances. Our mighty God is far greater than any who might stand in the way of your hearts desires here on earth. We have an Advocate in Christ Jesus who not only stands as the One who brought about our reconciliation with the Father, but who also tends us as a Shepherd every moment. If David, a mere human, set all His strength against those wild beasts who would have harmed his sheep, how much more will the Good Shepherd guard your precious husband and yourself no matter who seems to be against you. with love in Christ, Jo

Stephanie from Asia (Aug. 30, 2012, 3:12 p.m.)


Persisting in prayer with you. Believing in faith for your husbands complete healing. After reading your latest update, will pray also for your concerns regarding deans care and full disclosure to you of deans medial records. He is able! You continue to inspire me to love my own husband and family and live it out each day.

Mrs. Martin from PA (Aug. 30, 2012, 9:12 a.m.)


You and your husband have been in my prayers often, my heart goes out to you. I came across these verses this morning in my devotions...hope it blesses you like it did me. Ezekiel 34:11,12 "For thus sayeth the Lord God; Behold, I, Even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day." I'm sure there is times when this journey has been cloudy and dark for you, but God promises to seek you and gather you to Himself again. I know you have felt Him doing that to you... don't give up! Ezekiel 34 is full of "I will" promises from God...He never breaks His promises!

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 30, 2012, 7:59 a.m.)


"I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with My eye." (Psalm 32:8)

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 30, 2012, 2:30 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Hope your day is going well. I look forward to your updates and hope your birthday went well as could be. You are blessed child of God who is committed to God and Dean and the family. Take care. I'll keep praying.

Dorothy Wilt from Waynesboro, PA (Aug. 30, 2012, 1:42 a.m.)


Happy Birthday, Danielle. I hope you were able to find some happiness on your special day. As always, Ben and I continually pray for you and Dean and all who love you. From one new bride to another, I find your faith in God and how you advocate for your husband to be inspirational and astounding. Clearly, your strength comes from the Lord. Ben and I are so glad to have met such sweet people as you and Dean. We will continue to pray until he is completely restored, and we will give thanks unto God for his goodness and mercy.

Kay Kirk from Hagerstown, MD (Aug. 30, 2012, 1:38 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Happy Birthday on your 28th birthday. We are all praying for you and Dean in our Sunday School class at Otterbein--your grandparents are in my class. I have read some of your journey, and see that you are keeping your focus on the Lord. God bless you for that. Remember PSALM 62:5-7 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. May you alway look to Jesus for comfort and strength, because he loves you. Love in Jesus, Kay Kirk

Anita from Greencastle (Aug. 29, 2012, 11:29 p.m.)

Dannielle and the Shenberger family, from your Whitetail family, we continue our prayers for Dean-everyday you and Dean are in our conversations, thoughts, emails and prayers. Our love, support and prayers are always with you.

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 29, 2012, 6:38 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I tried to send you a Happy Birthday wish from Ruth Boner's computer, but it hung up the computer. I am doing it from mine. I hope your day went ok despite all and you and Dean had a good day together. Keep hanging in there and trusting God for a good outcome.

Nurse Liz from York, PA (Aug. 29, 2012, 3:04 p.m.)


Happy Birthday to you Dannielle! Thinking and praying for all of you. We are all still following your story here at York. Tell Dean to keep up the good work. Looking forward to reading about his progress at Kessler. Keep your head up, you are all just amazing.

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (Aug. 29, 2012, 6:33 a.m.)


Happy Birthday Dannielle, you are such a beautiful woman of God. I am sure that it is hard to celebrate this day when all of you is with your husband. But I am so thankful for you, and for the day that the Father brought you into this world. God bless you and keep you safe. \0/

Brenda from Sudan (Aug. 29, 2012, 2:01 a.m.)


Dannielle! Congratulations. I'm so encouraged to read about your courage, faithfulness and perseverance! I hope that you may find a special Birthday gift today. Blessings and strength from our Father!!! Brenda

Duane and Darese Arch from Maugansville, MD (Aug. 28, 2012, 9:22 p.m.)


Happy birthday Dannielle! Under the circumstances, I trust you had a good day! On behalf of Darese and myself, we read your posts everyday and they are such a inspiration to us! May the Lord continue to bless you and Dean. We pray for you both everyday and are still trusting the Lord for his complete healing.

Marsha Taylor from Falling Waters, WV (Aug. 28, 2012, 6:14 p.m.)


Danielle your strength and courage amaze me each and every time I read your postings. Dean could not have ask for a better advocate than you. I know times are hard and you get discouraged but may you gain strength in knowing the vast number of people who are on your side and praying for you and Dean daily. I want to wish you a very special birthday, may you soon get to celebrate it with your dear husband. May God continue to sustain both you and Dean and may the devil be defeated in every way concerning this matter.

Shawna from Greencastle (Aug. 28, 2012, 4:23 p.m.)


Dannielle - I first heard of you from my Sunday School teacher asking us to pray for you. I have been keeping up with your story. You are such an inspiration to me. To be so young and so focused and so dedicated to the Lord. You hang in there! God has always given me hard things in my life when he needed me to learn something and when he wanted me to seek him. Always, always when it is over, I see how much of a blessing the hard thing was even though it did not seem like it at the time. Please hang in there we are all praying for you.

Shella from WV (Aug. 28, 2012, 2:18 p.m.)


Happy Happy Birthday dear Dannielle!! May the Lord give you an awesome, special blessing today!! Praying that God will soon restore Dean to perfect health. "I am the Lord that healeth thee".

Hazel & Dick Nelson from Mercersburg (Aug. 28, 2012, 1:42 p.m.)


Thinking of you & Dean on this special day that the Lord hath made. Thank you heavenly Father for sending Dannielle to be with Dean. Love and prayers are with you two.

Lydia Christman from Mercersburg (Aug. 28, 2012, 12:36 p.m.)


Happy Birthday Dannielle. I hope all of your wishes come true. You are truly a very special young woman. May God continue to guide you & comfort you on this very hard & long journey. I pray that he will heal Dean completely & give you & Dean the strength that is needed to get through each day and night. I love you. Blessings. Lydia

Bridget from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 28, 2012, 11:43 a.m.)


Happy Birthday Dannielle! I remember like it was yesterday....this little girl running around Nana and Pap's farm and how you have grown to become a beautiful and strong woman. I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that we continue to hold Dean in our thoughts and prayers daily. Stay strong and continue to be Dean's voice. Please let us know if you need anything. We love you and God Bless!!

Georgeanne from Hagerstown (Aug. 28, 2012, 11:38 a.m.)


Happy Birthday to a very precious young lady that I've grown to love and admire deeply over the past couple of months. I've learned alot from reading your posting this morning. Never knew a wife had to become guardian of her husband to get medical information! May God grant you the desire of your heart which is to have your "Gift" back completely whole. We're all praying towards that end so keep those army boots laced up and ready to roll!! Love you.

Deb Haines from Greencastle (Aug. 28, 2012, 9:05 a.m.)


Happy Birthday, Dannielle! Hope you have a blessed day! Of course, every day is blessed for you; even when the chips are down, you realize that you're strength is in the Lord and are joyful because of Him! Love you!

mom elena from mercersburg, PA 17236 (Aug. 28, 2012, 9:04 a.m.)


Happy Birthday my precious daughter. You always held fast to the correct and right things of life, always truthful, always loving, caring about others in life and always serving our Abba Father. May the Lord of mercy bless you today and continue to keep you safely under the wings of the Most High. It is a joy and blessing to be your mom. Love you very much...

Melinda from Chambersburg (Aug. 27, 2012, 11:09 p.m.)


Ahh, Danielle - I read your posts every day, and you are in my thoughts and prayers, particularly as you deal with bureaucracy on top of the tender care you are giving Dean. I met you once or twice at concerts for Lauren (Suzuki events), and remember your joyful smile. The story about China as harrowing . . . peace and strength and patience -- I hope you can float on the love and goodwiill of those who are pulling for both of you.

Leann RN from York, PA (Aug. 27, 2012, 7:42 p.m.)


Continuing to follow your story and sending thoughts and prayers to you both. It has been such a battle for you and Dean, as well as those who love you both. My hope is that you find moments of peace to sustain you throughout these days, and especially the nights.

Janine from Mercersburg (Aug. 27, 2012, 2:12 p.m.)


Dearest Danielle and Dean, Be strong! It takes faith only the size of a mustard seed to move mountains, We have that faith. Believe! Danielle stay on the path dont grow faint. God is in control and Deans outcome rests with God. I pray for you and you are always in my heart. Fondly, Janine

jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (Aug. 27, 2012, 12:15 p.m.)


Dannielle, My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you daily. Trusting for that Miracle for Dean. Our God is able. Jackie H

mom elena from mercersburg, PA 17236 (Aug. 27, 2012, 11:52 a.m.)


My dearest, loving daughther. I so love our visits and time together. You have grown into a beautiful young women inside and out. I so rejoice with you in your fight for Dean. I believe this is all scriptural Matthew chapter 7, Jesus spoke to us about effective prayer, Jesus NEVER says give up anywhere that I can read. This acciedent has been very tragic not just for Dean but for Dannielle, his family and others. The Lord gave me one night in the midst of prayer and fasting Isaiah 54:17, But in the coming day, no weapon turned against you will succeed. And everyone who tells lies in court will be brought to justice, These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken! I know that Dannielle is only serving the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and that God is in the business of healing. I love you very much darling......

Todd Sheldon from Waynsesboro, PA (Aug. 27, 2012, 7:34 a.m.)


"In our desert of grief, Jesus can provide an oasis of hope." Heard this morning on "Our Daily Bread." Blessings of cool, clear water! Todd Sheldon

Jeremy R from Alabama (Aug. 26, 2012, 11:32 p.m.)


I often think of a song I recently heard when I think of you all... Guest The Potter Knows The Clay Verse 1 I know you are going through the fire Its getting hard to stand the heat But even harder is the wondering Is God’s hand still on me Its lonely in the flames When you’re counting days of pain Chorus But the Potter knows the clay How much pressure it can take How many times around the wheel ‘Til there’s submission to His will he’s planned a beautiful design but it’ll take some fire and time its gonna be okay ‘cause the Potter knows the clay Verse 2 Friend I just came through that fire Not too very long ago And looking back I can see why And that my God was in control But on the hottest days I'd cry Oh Lord, isn't it about time

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 26, 2012, 11:29 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I was so touched by your words of distress as this man was suffering. We need prayer for this man as well as protection for Dean. The biggest protecton for Dean is all the prayers that surround him from all of God's children. You know your Bible better than me, but a verse in the Bible, and forgive my misquote, is about God's Grace is sufficient for us. Keep encouraged, keep praying and keep near Dean as he struggles and the family struggles. God's is our healer and protector of our faith and he will sustain us through all things. Sincerely, Miss Linda M. Shull shull1956@centurylink.net

Sarah from Hagerstown MD. (Aug. 26, 2012, 9:03 p.m.)


I have been following your notes pretty closely. Our church has kept Dean lifted up in prayer as well as I have! I had this verse on my heart and wanted to share with you. My God bless you all!! God is good ALL THE TIME! :O) Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint." NOTE - The word "wait" in this verse implies a positive action of hope, based on knowing that the Word of God is a true fact and that it will soon come to pass - waiting with earnest expectation!

Aaronne Livingston from Arroyo Grande, California (Aug. 26, 2012, 11:04 a.m.)


Adam and I are praying for Dean and Dannielle daily. May God restore what has been lost. May He give strength, peace, and love during this time of your lives. We pray that Dean would be touched by a miracle from God. We love you Dannielle, and know that Jesus loves you too.

Rebecca B from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 26, 2012, 9:40 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, We are holding you up in prayer each day. II Corinthians 12:10 . . . for when I am weak, then am I strong. You are a blessing, not only to Dean, but to us as well. Thank you for the detailed requests for Dean's healing. It helps us know how to direct our prayers. Keep reading those encouraging scriptures to Dean. I know he hears them and draws strength from them. I pray daily that he will soon be able to communicate with you in a purposeful way. Sending lots of love your way

Winnie from Hancock (Aug. 26, 2012, 6:57 a.m.)


Just want you to know we our praying for you and dean night and day,Dannielle.Wishing we could help you in some other way too.reading your updates everyday helps us.love from all my Family

Lisa from West Chester (Aug. 26, 2012, 5:47 a.m.)


Praying for you especially right now! I hope rooms have been changed by now. I understand what you are going through! Keep being an advocate for your husband!

Jodie Crooks from Jonesville, Louisiana (Aug. 26, 2012, 2:10 a.m.)


Be not weary in well doing, for in due season, ye shall reap if ye faint not. I feel that this verse in Galatians 6 can be applied to your situation. The devil wants you to doubt. He wants you to grow weary in trusting the Lord, but take courage, be strong for as the bible says, "the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee!!"

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 26, 2012, 1:59 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I am encouraged from the verses you find in the Word. It helps me through my day as I am going through a challenge, but not one such as yours. I can tell you are ministering to all those around you. I'm sure the nurses and doctors see the love of Christ within you and think what a beautiful, dedicated, Godly woman she is. You may never know how many come to know Christ through your testimony. Even a person who knows their must be a God and they don't believe there is one. Dean may be struggling physically, but the things you have said he is also looking forward to the day you both can return home. Keep the faith. God bless. Sincerely, Miss Linda M. Shull

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 25, 2012, 12:33 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, You have a good head on your shoulders and a true commitment to God and Dean. Keep the faith and I'll continue prayers for healing in all areas for Dean, you and the family. You truly are a blessing to them. Sincerely, Miss Linda M. Shull

Mj from Ohio (Aug. 24, 2012, 7:40 a.m.)


My prayers for Dean to be relieved of all pain are being said faithfully. God has a plan for Dean and we must believe in God's plan for we cannot change it. I pray for Danielle's strength to continue and that she will be able to take time to heal.

Angela LaRue from Cebu, Philippines (Aug. 24, 2012, 2:59 a.m.)


My heart and many prayerful words are with you both. Ange

Laura from ship (Aug. 23, 2012, 3:47 p.m.)


Praying for you Danielle as you travel this hard often lonely and long journey. Praying for Dean as he works hard internally to return to you! Praying that his health and mind will be completely restored. Thank you for your news posts... it gives us a glimpse into who Dean was, who you are, the struggles, the joys, the pain. My heart aches for you.. and rejoices with you when you rejoice. God bless yoU!

David and Barbara from Morgan City, AL (Aug. 23, 2012, 3:45 p.m.)


Dannielle (and Family), We are continuing to pray for Dean's healing in our daily prayers and at Church. God will sustain all of you thru this trial. It has been a while since we signed the guestbook, but wanted you to know that we have not forgotten you. You have many saints praying for you and Dean.

Alvin Craig from Md. (Aug. 23, 2012, 8:01 a.m.)


Both of you are in our daily prayers. We are asking God for a miracle of healing for Brother Dean. Continue to be strong in the Lord. In Christian love, Brother Alvin

Maria Laing from Lima, Ohio (Aug. 23, 2012, 5 a.m.)


Dearest Dannielle, each night I read your posts before I retire for the night. I entrust you and Dean to God and hope that, in His mercy, He will sustain you through this time. I carry you with me in my thoughts and my heart...and in my prayers. There are not words sufficient to express my care for you. Always loving you....Maria

Sharon J from Denver (Aug. 23, 2012, 1:46 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, We were blessed to have Dean and his brothers visit us when they came to the Wyo. shooting competition. It was such a blessing to get to know them a bit. We were so pleased when he found someone to be his loving partner. You are indeed an angel by his side. I cant imagine how hard it is to stay strong through this continuing storm. Our family greatly appreciates the time and effort you are putting into keep all of us updated on a daily basis. Please know that we are standing with you in prayer for a complete recovery!

jackie H from Lima (Aug. 22, 2012, 12:42 p.m.)


Hi Dannielle, My prayers continue to be with you and Dean. I am standing with you and believing for a Miracle. Jesus is greater than any storm. One word from Him can calm the seas, One word from Him can bring Healing. "Is there anything to hard for the Lord?" I don't think so. Healing is the children's bread. Keep on believing for that Miracle Dannielle. We are all believing with you. Love Jackie

kathy long from waynesboro (Aug. 22, 2012, 11:22 a.m.)


Dear Danielle and Dean, Today I am feeling impressed to pray against discouragement for the two of you. Praying dear ones! We longs love you!

Claudia Vogrin from Indiana (Aug. 21, 2012, 11:48 a.m.)


Can someone remind me what "storming" is?

Julie from Mercersburg (Aug. 20, 2012, 9:26 p.m.)


Proverbs 31:10-12 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Doug and I have always prayed that God would send Dean his help mate. A special treasure in whom he could walk through life with hand in hand. Loving and knowing Dean so well we dreamed of the special qualities she might have to compliment him. Our prayers and dreams came true on May 5th of 2012! God blessed our family with Dannielle Maria, a gift from God! She has been a priceless treasure in whom our whole family is proud to call Mrs. Dean Shenberger! Our hearts safely trust in her and we have seen her graciousness and devotion in showing her beloved one goodness all her days! We know God has brought them together and has a special plan and blessing for their lives! We continue to bring their precious names before the mercy seat of God, knowing He has given us many wonderful promises to claim in their behalf. We can not fully express all our heart truly feels, but may she feel our deep love, support, and prayers! We wish we could be there with her every day to give her a hug when she needs one, to catch her fallen tears, but we place her in our loving Heavenly Father's arms knowing He can be there when no one can no matter the time of day! We look forward to the day when we have our favorite neighbors back home! May the Lord grant the desires of her heart, for His honor and glory! We love you Dannielle!

Jack Slick from Hagerstown (Aug. 20, 2012, 1:24 p.m.)


This morning we started boot camp at the Y missing one of our buddies. When Dean would walk through the door we knew it was time to run. I'll miss the mornings we would get started before him and hear his padding footsteps behind us as he caught us. Get well as soon as possible Dean, all of us at boot camp miss you!

Claudia Vogrinus from Indiana (Aug. 18, 2012, 11:37 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Thank you for the daily updates on Dean's healing. It is very helpful to know specifics on how to pray for him. You are such a Godly woman who walks with God. The Scriptures that you post are an inspiration to us. Thank you for taking the time out of your exhausting days to let us know how Dean is progressing. With Love and Prayers, Claudia Vogrin

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (Aug. 18, 2012, 9:37 p.m.)


A couple of weeks ago I was reading what Dannielle wrote about how she caught Dean's tears in her hand and than she asked for us to pray for him, there where so many things that Dean was enduring I started to pray and I wept I was feeling for Dean and Dannielle how over whelming it is. Then I thought about how God brought these two beautiful spirits together to share the rest of their lives with each other as one. Knowing every thing Dannielle is feeling also. I heard this song and it made me think about what Dean's beautiful wife is to him. The song is called Angel by Your Side, Frances Battistellie, I can't say everything is okay cause I can see the tears your crying, And i can't promise to take the pain away but you can know I won't stop trying I'll be the angel by your side I will get you through the night I'll be the strength you can't provide on your own. Cause when your down and out of time And you think you lost your fight Let me be your angel by your side. I know it feels like your running out of faith cause it so hard to keep believing But if i can bring a smile back to your face for a moment You'll forget all about it I'll be your angel by your side I will get you through the night I'll be the strength you can't provide on your own. Cause when your down and out of time And you think you lost the fight let me be the angel by your side Cause this won't be the last time you will need a little hope But I want to be the first to let you know I'll be the angel by your side I will get you through the night. I'll be the strength you can't provide on your own. Cause when you're down and out of time And you think you lost the fight Let me be your angel by your side. Dear sweet Danniellee you are Dean's angel you have loved him and been his watchful eye when something has been over looked. You pray for him nonstop and seek God's every word for healing and strength. What a blessed man Dean is to have such a beautiful wife that see's the wonderful man her husband is and honors him with her whole heart and soul. Always thinking and praying for Dean's recovery and that the Father will continue to give you the strength that you need in the journey of full recovery. God bless you and yours. \0/

Helen from Lima (Aug. 18, 2012, 5:28 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle... Such good news to hear of Dean's progress. I know this has to feel like the longest journey you've ever taken. But thanks be to our Lord Jesus that He walks beside you all the way, strengthening you each and every day. Continuing to pray for you both and looking to the day when Dean is whole again.

Melissa from McFadden (Aug. 17, 2012, 6:24 p.m.)


Dannielle, It is so great to hear of the little steps Dean is taking to regain his mobility and communication skills. I can imagine that these little signs of progress are very rewarding. Don't ever forget how many people are continually praying for Dean's recovery, and sending you strength to see him through his this ordeal. I will pray that you and Dean are able to share many more days ahead with the sun shinning down on your faces, and the fresh breezes whisking your sorrows away.

Ashley A. & Toby S. from Mechanicsburg, PA (Aug. 17, 2012, 11:43 a.m.)


Dannielle - I am so excited to hear such great news about Dean! Being in the sunlight and feeling the breeze on a gorgeous day will do wonders for his spirit (and yours!). Keeping you both in our prayers. xoxo

Beth from NY (Aug. 17, 2012, 8:14 a.m.)


Continuing to hold you before our precious Father in prayer, as you walk this journey with Him. Praying for Dean's continued healing and restoration.

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 16, 2012, 11:50 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, Praise God for all the good things you wrote. It sounds like Dean is coming along. The race will be slow, but the victory great. I keep Ruth Boner informed as much as I can as she has no one to help her with the computer. Keep your chin up and keep looking up as you are. God bless. We are all thinking of you and praying for you.

Rena from Mercersburg, PA (Aug. 16, 2012, 9:48 p.m.)


From a song I cherish: "I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand, though rich or poor I may be. Faith can see right through the circumstance, sees the forest in spite of the trees. Your grace provides for me". Alison Krauss Thinking of you both!

Sherry & Denny DeShong from Harrisonville, Pa. (Aug. 16, 2012, 9:12 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, my heart breaks for you & Dean & I cry tears for you both each time I pray for you & Dean's family throughout the day & as I lay my head on my pillow at night & pray for safekeeping of Dean & peaceful rest for you during the night. I ask the Lord to heal Dean & bring him back to you! I know He will in His time, but we are yet human & suffer all the emotions of being so. Thank the Lord for the words that He has given us to sustain us through the times when it is all we can do to put one foot in front of the other & watch the ones we love so much suffer, especially on a daily basis every minute of the day. It's unbearable to witness the pain & struggles they must endure. I too had to bear this with my precious Mother who bravely battled cancer for 2 1/2 years & suffered so much pain. I too was by her bedside every moment other than when I would try to get a few hours of much needed sleep, which mostly eluded me. I couldn't bear that she might need something & I wouldn't be there to provide it for her & comfort her. I held her in my arms as she left me, & went to be with God. The human part of me begged to keep her with me, but knew that meant suffering for her, so I could not wish to do so, no matter how desperately I wished for one more moment with her. I gave her to God with love, even though it's left me with a broken heart that I can only trust God to mend. The only comfort I find is knowing that she is looking upon the face of God! I can only imagine what beauty she now sees! I am still heartbroken & shed so many tears because of the emotions that make us mere humans, even though it has been a year since I lost her. God is my strength! If He were not holding me in His arms, the human part of me would surely fail desperately! He is my sustainer every day! If the Bible would be being written today Danielle, you would surely be one of God's most precious disciples! You are an example of that precious, giving love & what God wants each of us to strive for, & hold in our hearts! What a wonderful world we would live in! Please know that as you shed your precious tears of love that someone shares them with you, & for you. I have prayed that God might choose my precious Mother to be one of the guardian angels He sends to watch over you & Dean as He does His healing in Dean's body, for I surely know that you & Dean are being held in the most loving & caring hands possible,while God keeps you & Dean's family in safe keeping & His endless love!

Jami from Frederick, MD (Aug. 16, 2012, 2:59 p.m.)


You don't know me, but I have been following your daily reports since the accident. You are an amazing women and Dean is a strong man. I know the good Lord above is watching over you both daily. I also know that one day Dean is going to wake up and have a complete recovery. This will strengthen you even more in your relationship with each other and God. God Bless and I will continue to pray for Dean!

Todd Sheldon from Waynesboro, PA (Aug. 16, 2012, 10:29 a.m.)


Dannielle, Dean and families. I am so very encouraged by your reports of God's faithfulness to you all AND by the witness of your ever deepening faith evidenced through your daily blog. Sun, 8/12 Dr. Tony Evans spoke on "Discovering the Strength of Faith." He has such a creative way with words. I share these with you NOT to instruct you but to encourage you because I see you living out your faith in the 4 ways he expresses. FIRST: "Faith is acting like something is true; Even when it is not true; So that it may become true; Because God says it is true." SECOND: "Do what others can't do; Because you can see what others can't see." THIRD: "Faith is acting like God is telling the truth." FOURTH: "Don't stare at what you're going through; Keep your eyes on 'the Joy set before you.'" May God continue to Bless you through your Faith, His Word, evidenced of His Love through progress in Dean's mind and body.

Becky from York,PA (Aug. 16, 2012, 10:14 a.m.)


Still following your story and praying for you both! Stay strong, the Lord is with you.

Elisabeth Hageman from Canada (Aug. 16, 2012, 9:48 a.m.)


"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD." -Psalm 31:24. Much love to you and Dean, Dannielle! You are always in my prayers.

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 15, 2012, 10:51 a.m.)


Loved the eagle picture! When a storm comes, the eagle sets its wings so the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle does not escape the storm, it simply uses the storm to lift it higher. “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Christina Kasper from Oklahoma (Aug. 15, 2012, 9:05 a.m.)


Keep holding on! God's plan is perfect, we just have to trust his timing.

meldy s. from Philippines (Aug. 15, 2012, 6:12 a.m.)


Sis Danielle, thanks for keeping us all updated about Bro Dean's condition. As we read your daily blogs, we can really feel how great the faith you have in God is to keep standing on His promises during this time of suffering. Truly God's grace is all sufficient for you and Bro. Dean. It is indeed God's plan to give "YOU" to him as companion for life. It is our earnest prayers to restore Bro Dean's health and condition to pursue your life's journey… together… in the Lord. God knows, God sees, God feels, God cares, He hears your earnest cry, our prayers, and we believe that the answer is already on the way.

Andrea Walsh from Harleysville (Aug. 14, 2012, 10:04 p.m.)


Dannielle and Family, My family and I have been praying for Dean and you all. My best to you, Dean, and your extended family. Andrea (friend of Heidi)

Mary Ellen Eshleman from Mercersburg,PA (Aug. 14, 2012, 10:38 a.m.)


Dannielle, as I read you blog each day my heart goes out to you and your families. Many times we want to know the WHYS in life but if we knew them would we be any different. As you go through each day remember that many are praying for you. Pastor Al and I pray for you frequently.

Tara Crooks from Jonesville, LA (Aug. 14, 2012, 9:21 a.m.)


Dannielle, I so admire your determined faith in God and your positive spirit. I can only imagine that at times it gets very discouraging. I am praying that God will give you a special blessing today and, in the days to come,that He will do abundantly more than you could ask or even think. That's the kind of Father He is!

Arthur M from Cayman (Aug. 13, 2012, 6 p.m.)


We are so glad to see every now and then the news about Dean's condition.Thank you sis Dannielle all your efforts for giving us update.Praying for you all.

Thomas from Hagerstown (Aug. 13, 2012, 4:13 p.m.)


I used to do bootcamp at the Y with Dean in the morning. I am so sorry to hear about his terrible accident. Please know that I am praying for both of you daily.

Marie Lewis from Felton PA (Aug. 13, 2012, 11:01 a.m.)


Dannielle, your strength, faith and love are inspiring to all. You are truly an amazing woman and I pray for you and Dean's healing each day. Best to you all, Marie

Brenda Reynolds from Coatesville, Pa (Aug. 13, 2012, 9:48 a.m.)


I you have been reading your daily reports and praying for both you and Dean. God is good and his truth lives forever. God has promised his people that he will never let them endure more than they can bear. Be encouraged that where two are together in his name--he is there.

Sis. Joyce Stamper from Hagerstown, Md. (Aug. 13, 2012, 6:57 a.m.)


Dear Danielle, I've been following along with your reports each day-first of all I had to have Amanda put them on for me; but when she went to Jamica, my son Matt showed me how to get your reports. I'm so glad I can finally do it. I want you to know how much you and Dean mean to me--I'm praying earnestly for you; for I know a little of what you are going through. I lost my son Chris when he was hit by a car when he was 8 1/2 years old. We spent 10 days at John Hopkins, so I know the heart-ache you all feel. May God continue to strengthen you all-Keep trusting-God will never fail. Love,Sis. Joyce

Alice from Vinton, VA (Aug. 13, 2012, 1:14 a.m.)


Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

Kurt Hague from Lansdale (Aug. 12, 2012, 4 p.m.)


I read your diary everyday, and everyday I am amazed by your strength and love for Dean. All things are possible when you put your trust in the Lord. I will continue to pray for you and Dean every day.

Rebecca B from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 12, 2012, 9:21 a.m.)


We continue to lift both of you up in our prayers as you make this treacherous journey through unfamiliar territory. Your Guide, however, is familiar to us all. He will lead you safely through. Know how often your names are on our lips in prayer. We remember you throughout every day. We miss you both so very much, and look forward to the day when we will see you again.

Rachel Nichols from Mercersburg, PA (Aug. 11, 2012, 10:12 a.m.)


To Dean's family - Donnie Cordell just told me about Dean's Marathon. This has touched me deeply and I add my prayers for healing of body and soul for all of you; Dean is not taking this journey alone. Your family elevates our community and we in turn will lift you with our prayers. Dannielle, although I have never had the privilege of meeting you, please know that you are inspiring a lot of people with your faith and actions. God stands beside you during the whole journey. May He bless you all with strength of mind and body, with wisdom as you make difficult decisions, and with shalom -- peace.

Julie C. from Michigan (Aug. 11, 2012, 6:38 a.m.)


A Corrie TenBoom quote that blessed my family throughout our accident recovery days/months/years: "There are no 'ifs' in God's Kingdom. His timing is perfect. His will is our hiding place."

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (Aug. 11, 2012, 12:30 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, Hang in there. You are doing great. God is pleased I know with your dedication and so is Dean. You'll have a long road, but God will sustain you. He, God is always there for us as His son, Jesus, intercedes for us. I read the updates daily and am always encouraged by your words of wisdom. I'll keep praying and may God bless and sustain you all. Sincerely, Miss Linda M. Shull

Marelin K. Sites from Greencastle PA (Aug. 10, 2012, 7:25 p.m.)


Following your blog daily and praying faithfully throughout each day. Have faith in God's love and know that He is there to provide you with all the comfort and strength you may need. I continue to pray for Dean's miraculous healing. "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort." 2 Cor 1:3

Stacy Lehman from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 9, 2012, 4:43 p.m.)


Danielle, we are continuing to pray for you and for Dean. I have been checking your blog quite often whether I comment or not is another question, but I wanted you to know that we have not forgotten you and Dean. We think about you guys a lot and I totally agree with Emily...He IS the GREAT PHYSICIAN! Dean is in good hands with both his earthly doctors and his heavenly doctor. Thank you for continuing to share your faith and allowing God to shine through you.

Lloyd &Rachel Gingrich from Mercersburg, PA (Aug. 9, 2012, 3:40 p.m.)


Dear friends: It doesn't seem like enough to tell you that we are praying but than we realize that it is enough because HE IS ENOUGH!

Shannon Doyle from Boonsboro, MD (Aug. 9, 2012, 5:47 a.m.)


I have been actively involved in reading your story since the day of the accident. I am amazed at the strength that you both have been blessed with. Dannielle--you are an amazing woman! To each of us out here that reads of your day to day commitment to your husband, we are all challenged. Could we too be the wife that you have been to Dean if we were in a similar situation. What a Godly woman and example you are to all. You are touching so many lives by such a tragic experience. Dean, you and your family are in our daily prayers.

Susan Darby-Ellis from SalemJamaica (Aug. 9, 2012, 1:09 a.m.)


Hi everyone, I timely went through most of the postings done and my heart is truly touched. But we are sure we serve an able and mighty God. He can do the things that seem so impossible to man. I will continue praying for this dear brother...i don't personally know him, but based on what i have read and seen he is a christian indeed. God will come through for him..so let us keep the prayer bells ringing for God will surely answer. Yous in Christ, Sis. Susan

Dennis "Manzy" Phillips from Fredericksburg, VA (Aug. 9, 2012, 12:58 a.m.)


I am praying tonight/this morning for the mercies, love, protection, and healing of God to be given to Dean, and you, Danielle, and to let you know that the both of you are being prayed for 24/7.

Misty Brown from Waynesboro, Pa (Aug. 8, 2012, 10:10 p.m.)


Dannielle, I have been thinking of you and praying for you and Dean all day. Will continue to pray throughout the night for you both.

David Kaiser from Columbus, Ohio (Aug. 8, 2012, 8:56 p.m.)


Praying for his health to return and for many graces for him and his family!

Todd Sheldon from Waynesboro, PA (Aug. 8, 2012, 7:34 p.m.)


Dean, Dannielle and your families: I just read your post-operative update at 6:47 p.m. on 8/8. As I reflect on the surgeons' perspective of the overwhelming complexities of the day & as I recall these are highly experienced surgeons in a "top flight trauma center" I am reminded by the Lord of: Proverbs 22:29 "Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men." Praise you Lord for the skilled staff You have brought to bear on Dean's care!

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (Aug. 8, 2012, 4 p.m.)


I'm praying for the steady hands and vast knowledge of all of the doctors involved in Dean's surgery(s). My thoughts are with Dean, Dannielle and the families today.

Rose Marzan from Philippines (Aug. 8, 2012, 2:43 p.m.)


In your times of troubles,the Lord whispers to us;"Be not afraid,I'll go before you ,always."Everything has a reason..God will not permit any troubles to come upon us,unless He has an specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.Our God is real and an answering God.The master healer and great physician.Beloved,lets put our trust and everything in Gods hand.Amen.

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 8, 2012, 11:54 a.m.)


God is able to do exceeding (far beyond the usual in magnitude and degree), abundantly (in large measure), above (over all other factors or considerations), all (whole, complete) that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. (Ephesians 3:20)

Heather from Ohio (Aug. 8, 2012, 11:52 a.m.)


Praying for you, Dean and the doctors. I've been reading your updates every day and have been praying that God will continue to give you peace, comfort and an ever-growing trust in our Heavenly Father. I cannot imagine the pain and exhaustion you must feel, Dannielle. Praying...

Ashley A. & Toby S. from Mechanicsburg, PA (Aug. 8, 2012, 8:25 a.m.)


Continuing each and everyday to pray for you and Dean. Today especially, you are both in our thoughts and prayers. Stay strong! xoxo.

sharon from colmbia city,in (Aug. 8, 2012, 7:46 a.m.)


Danielle Your and yours are in my prayers. I ask for prayers yesterday in bible study. Danielle remember the caregiver also needs care. Praying for you and Dean expecially today. Also praying for the drs. and nurses who will be attending to Dean. Thank you so much for all your updates.

Renee Krepfle from Marion, Iowa (Aug. 7, 2012, 11:53 p.m.)


Dannielle, We are continuing to pray for you and your husband, Dean. Although we have never met you, we do so enjoy Dennis and his friendship...and enjoyed time with him in NYC about a month ago. Your entries are a blessing as God obviously has you in the shelter of HIs wing. I can't imagine just how difficult this is - but marvel what God is doing in and through you as we read your updates.

Amy Beachy from Manheim, Pa (Aug. 7, 2012, 11:45 p.m.)


Dear Danielle, I am praying daily for you and Dean. I can't imagine what you are going through, but I am so encouraged by your steadfast and trusting spirit. God is using your testimony mightily and all the glory keeps pointing to Him. Verses that blessed me when I went through cancer were; Isaiah 43:1-3~ He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel, fear not for I have redeemed you. I have summoned you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters I will be with you. When you pass through the mighty rivers they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flames burn you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Verses that you are an example of are; Jeremiah 17:7-8~ Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water, that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes, but it's leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to produce fruit. Continually lifting you and Dean up in prayer!! Love in Christ, Amy

Emily Thompson from Hagerstown, MD (Aug. 7, 2012, 5:58 p.m.)


Dannielle, Dean, and family, We are still thinking about you and praying for God's healing upon Dean's body-to renew his brain functioning completely and to restore every fracture and break. He IS the Great Physician! We are also praying for continued comfort as you go through this difficult time.

Brian&Brittany from Roaring Spring, PA (Aug. 7, 2012, 6:41 a.m.)


We look forward to reading your new update every morning. :-) Continue looking to Jesus and trusting Him. Our Prayers are always with you!

Brenda from Sudan (Aug. 7, 2012, 3:30 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle and Dean, I'm so blessed by reading your special updates about how the Lord brought you two together. Through this getting to know Dean also a bit. I'm looking forward to what God will continue to do in your lives together. Strength, Joy, Peace, Love, Trust, Perseverance, Hope, Faith!!! I keep on praying for you two. Blessings, Brenda

Jodie Crooks from Jonesville, Louisiana (Aug. 7, 2012, 1:06 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, How precious are your thoughts!! I know that at times you feel as if everything is flying apart, but PRAISE THE LORD, you have the peacemaker right beside you. Where can we go but to the Lord?!! He hears, he knows, and he understands. He is bottling up all of your prayers and ours and getting ready to pour them out in answers that we cannot contain!! You are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. My God bless you each and every moment!!

Autumn from York, PA (Aug. 6, 2012, 10:20 p.m.)


Still following along with your journey and praying for you and Dean.

Tera, Kayla and Eva K. from Smithsburg, MD (Aug. 6, 2012, 5:05 p.m.)


Dannielle and Dean, You are in our prayers and thoughts daily. Thanks so much for allowing us to pray with you and keeping us up to date. Your words inspire me daily.

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 6, 2012, 7:35 a.m.)


"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you." (Isaiah 43:2)

Jeremy from Alabama (Aug. 6, 2012, 7:27 a.m.)


Still praying. You all have not been forgotten. Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. We must keep our faith and eyes on the word of God and not the circumstances surrounding us.

Janet & Rick Smith from Mercersburg, PA (Aug. 6, 2012, 6:51 a.m.)


Dean & Danielle and family, You are continually in our prayers. I heard a comment on the radio and I immediately thought of you "If you want to see the stars you must go out into the dark." It is nice to read your blogs because you always have a positive thought and know there is always light. Please take care and thank you for keeping us updated.

Tim Crooks from Jonesville, LA (Aug. 6, 2012, 2:19 a.m.)


I want you to know that God is still in control of this situation,regardless of what our view is of the matter. I wanted to share a few words to a song that i know to be true,"Have faith when you speak to the Master That`s all he asks you for, Prayer is the key to Heaven But faith unlocks the door...prayer is the key to heaven, and faith unlocks the door!!!". We are continually holding each of you up to God in prayer, and i believe that God is continually working a great work on Bro Deans behalf. In Prayer always, Tim C

Melinda from Chambersburg (Aug. 5, 2012, 5:46 p.m.)


Still sending lots of good thoughts your way -- and strength for the caregivers who watch Dean with such skill and love.

Maria Laing from Lima, Ohio (Aug. 5, 2012, 2:27 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle and the family of Dean, My heart is with you through this, as well as my prayers....much love, Maria

Christopher and Elisabeth (Garreau) Folkerts from Twin Falls, Idaho (Aug. 4, 2012, 9:01 p.m.)


Still praying everyday. Our girls pray for "Mr. Dean" whom they have never met, but whom they know sent them a beloved teddy bear 8 years ago when our oldest was born. Also praying is our church here in Twin Falls, Idaho. This is so reminiscent of our own summer two year ago when my brother Michael's life hung in the balance week after week. I pray the Lord shows you the same kindness he showed us.

Andy from Exton, PA (Aug. 3, 2012, 8:05 a.m.)


Praying for you both. "My God is so big so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do." With much love in Christ, Andy, Janie, and Levi Fritchey

Josie Barthlow from Hagerstown, Md (Aug. 3, 2012, 7:45 a.m.)


I believe what it seems like you're saying...I know it seems like a bit of a set-back but I believe this is just another step in God's plan for Dean's healing! You were directed to that area for the specialists who have been given the passion of healing...I was glad to hear they thought it was time to work on his facial fractures and pray that afterwards this proves to be what he needed to continue to improve at God's speed :) I had become worried about your (Dannielle) well-being when it appeared the updates werent coming from you...I admire your desire to be at Dean's side all the time but you need to also rest so you can be strong for the rehab to come and when he awakes :) Lots of love to you and the entire family-I know you have a great deal of support which I am truly thankful for <3

Susanna Garreau from Greenville, SC (Aug. 2, 2012, 5:07 p.m.)


Dean and Danielle, Know that you have been much in my prayers as you walk through this dark time together. I praise God for your testimony of persevering faith and pray that He will comfort and strengthen your hearts with His own sweet presence. Trusting in the God of miracles for healing!

the Kriek family from living in kenya form SA high commission (Aug. 2, 2012, 4:11 p.m.)

Missie(secretary) from STCU York Hospital (Aug. 2, 2012, 3:31 p.m.)


Hey Danille, We were all watching out the window and waving, actually I was knocking. Guess you didnt hear me from 3 stories up. lol.We wish you the best and are praying for Dean. prayers

kathy long from waynesboro (Aug. 2, 2012, 2:05 p.m.)


I am again, (still), amazed at how the Lord continues to put you exactly where you need to be at each stage of this marathon. We love you and continue to pray, and to remember to thank the Lord for His continual care for you. blessings Dannielle and Dean!

Elena Mom from mercersburg, PA 17236 (Aug. 2, 2012, 12:07 p.m.)


Dear Dean and Dannielle, Praise God your footsteps are ordered by the Lord Jehovah Rapha. Dean and Dannielle may peace abound in each of you as the healing continues. We love you both dearly. Dad and Mom Murphy

Janine Davis from Mercersburg (Aug. 2, 2012, 11:54 a.m.)


Danielle, I am so thankful and I praise God at how day by day our prayers are being answered on Deans behalf. I am also so thankful for how our Blessed Lord increases your faith as you need it day by day. We are praying for the Doctors and nurses that are caring for Dean. Many blessings and much love to all of you as you continue to rest in His care. Janine

Vonnie from Greencastle, PA (Aug. 2, 2012, 11:27 a.m.)


“Do not remember the things that have happened before. Do not think about the things of the past. See, I will do a new thing. It will begin happening now. Will you not know about it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:18-19)

Rose Marzan from Philippines (Aug. 2, 2012, 8:22 a.m.)


Yes, my dear sister.We will never forget to pray for Dean,everytime we kneel our knees..both night and day.Our hope is in the Lord.Be strong ,God still cares.

Dori Groenendyk from Hagerstown, MD (Aug. 1, 2012, 7:40 p.m.)


I just want you to know I am joining the army of prayer warriors, lifting you up to our merciful, wonderful God. I believe he has goodness and light ahead for you. May you feel and experience His love in your suffering. Yours in Jesus, Dori Groenendyk

Hazel & Dick Nelson from Mercersburg (Aug. 1, 2012, 7:30 p.m.)


Our love and prayers are with Dean and Dannielle. May the Lord bless you and keep you.

Wenda Deville from Falling Waters, WV (Aug. 1, 2012, 9:20 a.m.)


Danneille, your love and devotion are what God intended when he gave Eve to Adam. May you be encouraged knowing we are still praying earnestly for you and Dean. Love you both very much!

Janet Craig from York PA (Aug. 1, 2012, 8:48 a.m.)


I was reading the Way of Truth paper and felt like it was printed just for you Dannielle about faith. You are so strong and inspire us with your words. I hope this is a comfort to you in time of need. It says "just like Peter, we will feel ourselves sinking. But when you can't see with your eyes, see with your heart. Know that Jesus is there with His arm outstretched saying quietly, "I've got you, my child. You're safe. This storm may be too much for you, but it's not too much for you and Me together. And remember, even when you feel alone, you're not. He has His eyes on you, too. There may be a gigantic wave in front of you, but just remember-on the other side of the wave is Jesus, with His arm stretched out saying, "I've got you, my child. You're safe. Don't fear the wind or the waves because I'm holding you tight. Release your fear. Trust me. You're safe. I've got you." We think of you everyday and trust the dear Lord will see you both through this storm.

Melinda Borrell from Chambersburg (Aug. 1, 2012, 12:04 a.m.)


I heard about the accident while at Suzuki camp with Elinor - and I'm glad we can keep up with you on this blog. Please know all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Let me know if there's anything we can do to help the kids with piano lessons or anything else - a place to rest while in C-burg?

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (July 31, 2012, 8:47 p.m.)


I know how blood clots can affect people. My sister had one and it went to her lung. She said she couldn't breathe and the DR and I thought it was from her asthma. Thankfully they could catch it, even though it went to her lung, and put her on blood thinners. I'll pray all goes well with the surgery and he stays well and so do you.

Heather Yoder from York (July 31, 2012, 8:40 p.m.)


Dannielle and Dean, prayers sent up for you and now waiting to hear that He has answered and you are back in Kessler tonight! God is blessing your new part of this journey and will start revealing His plan and future for you both! Jeremiah 29:11, one of my favorite that I lean on...hope this is a strength for you two also!

Candy from Hagerstown (July 31, 2012, 7:52 p.m.)


Im sitting here with my mom and my grandmother, Stutzie. I was reading them the updates. My grandmother says, "Our love and prayers are with you." May Dean be completely healed. I hope he can return to the rehab facility soon. All of our love to Dean, Danielle, and the entire Shenberger family. xoxo

Deb from Camp Hill, PA (July 31, 2012, 1:12 p.m.)


Danielle, I am praying ferverantly for Dean. I read your posts every morning and continue to pray throughout each day. God has His hand on you both and will carry you through. His promises are real ...continue to hold fast to them, proclaiming victory in Jesus and thanking Him for all He has done and will do! Much love to you!

Barb Lange from Chambersburg, PA (July 31, 2012, 12:53 p.m.)


Danielle, Just saw your post and will pray Dean will feel well enough to stay and not be moved one more time! I want to encourage you not to lose heart. God is answering a prayer of mine that I have been praying for over 14 years. God hears us and answers, even if it is not in our time. But His timing is perfect! Blessings and peace upon you!

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (July 30, 2012, 9:39 p.m.)


Praise God you made it safely. I will pray you all have a restful night as you get settled in to new surroundings.

Jason and Trinity(Nyenhuis)Turner from Tulsa, OK (July 30, 2012, 5:25 p.m.)


Good afternoon.... My family and I have been keeping you all in our prayers.Today I was listening to a song by Don Moen and felt impressed to share part of it.... "God will make a way where there seems to be no way... He works in ways we cannot see....he will make a way for me" Continue to hang on to God and his promise, he makes roads in the wilderness and streams in the desert, and he WILL be there for you all.

jackie Higginson from Lima, NY (July 30, 2012, 10:29 a.m.)


Dear Danielle, I continue to pray and believe with you for a complete healing for Dean. Your Hope & Faith in God is a testimony to all who read your updates every day. Faith is the substance of things Hoped for the evidence of things not seen. I Look forward to the day when you and Dean walk hand in hand out of the hospital. Weeping will endure for the night but JOY comes in the morning. Faith will become sight. I love you Jackie

Julia Siegrist from Lancaster, PA (July 30, 2012, 9:52 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, The Lord is shining brightly through your humility and transparency during this ongoing trial. It is a beautiful thing to witness your love and devotion not only to your husband, Dean, but also to your Savior whom you trust and rely on to restore and heal. I continue to uplift you and Dean and the family in prayer and continue to believe in faith that the Lord is not done yet and He has a grand plan for you and Dean's lives! This is just a detour in your journey, but not one that took the Lord by surprise. He loves you and Dean so much and I know He is glorified by your unwavering hope in His sovereignty. Isaiah 43:1-7 "But now thus says the Lord, He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel:“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in My eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I am with you;I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. I will say to the north, Give up,and to the south, Do not withhold; bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by My name, whom I created for My glory, whom I formed and made.” Julia Siegrist

Amanda T. from Chambersburg, PA (July 28, 2012, 8:34 p.m.)


Danielle, I don't know you personally, but I know a friend of your parents'. She sent me your link and our entire church is checking and praying. You have been such a blessing to me simply through reading your updates and seeing your faith and godliness. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 We will keep praying!

Helen from Lima,NY (July 28, 2012, 7:51 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I continue to pray and trust the Lord for Dean's complete recovery. May the Lord grant you HIS strength as you walk through this journey with your beloved. Dean's song to you at your wedding was absolutely lovely... I wept as I listened. Romans 5:5 "Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." Love you, and I wait for that day to meet your beloved whole & full of joy!!

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (July 28, 2012, 1:12 p.m.)


I keep praying daily. I look at your updates every night. Just trust in God and Dean. They will keep you going. Dean may not be able to respond very well at this time, but your being there I am sure keeps him responding. I'll keep praying and looking at the updates. Please Lord, keep them all safe and grant healing to this wonderful son and husband, I pray in Your Name, AMEN

Elisabeth Hageman from Lima, New York (July 27, 2012, 10:40 p.m.)


Dannielle, I remember you once telling me that love is a gift....thank-you for the gift of your love for your husband, and the gift of your faith in Jesus to bring great good and healing out of your situation. You and Dean are always in my thoughts and prayers - I love you!

jack york from Rochester, NY (July 27, 2012, 7:48 p.m.)


Danielle....I don't know you but I know your friends Wendy and Jen M.,Brian R., Mike P.,Sarah G., Jordan K. and Christine M. and all those at CT. I have prayed for Dean and for you since I heard. Tonight, as I read thru your last writing, I sensed that God was saying that He is laying a strong foundation for what He has in store for you'n'Dean. May you stay strong and focused on HIM, as He weaves His perfect plan...K? I will continue to pray. May His peace be yours and His grace sufficient for this time. In Christ, still in Awe of Him in me, jack

Bev Hannah from Waynesboro, PA (July 27, 2012, 7:47 p.m.)


Wanted you to know that Julie from Fairview BIC shared your story with us at Pregnancy Ministries and I have sent your site address to all of the centers in Franklin County. There are a lot of praying women, and I am sure each of them will pass your needs on to others. Bless you as you lean upon the breast of our sweet Savior! Bev Hannah

Deb Haines from Greencastle (July 27, 2012, 4:11 p.m.)


Me again, Dannielle. The word I got from the Lord today is, "Stay encouraged!" Many have responded that it was for them, but I feel it may be for you as well. Michelle and I said that you were special the day we met you. And, as I worked more and more with you, I knew my first impression to be true. Stay encouraged, dear one, stay encouraged!

Dean and Dannielle, I don't think it's a possibility that I can say something that someone else hasn't! However, I just wanted to let you both know that our family is praying for Dean's complete healing. It has been amazing being able to read how far he has come. May God bless you and continue to heal Dean! In Christ, The Boroughs Family

Teresa Kalmey from Waynesboro, PA (July 27, 2012, 8:35 a.m.)


Every day I check the updates and every day I pray for you both. I continue to ask God for a miracle.

Paul Kabanga KAPUYA from Kinshasa DR Congo (July 27, 2012, 6:36 a.m.)


From Malvern Bible Chapel Prayer n Praise I hear about you. And I pray for you ( jacques 5:6,16-18). I will remain in touch on your website to get all your updates news. God bless you In the Name of JESUS-CHRIST Paul

Carolyn from Hagerstown, MD (July 26, 2012, 6:38 p.m.)


Hello Danielle, Dean and family. Not a day passes that I do not think about you. My prayers mingle with all those that are being prayed by friends and family all over the world. Our God is a mighty God and hears every broken heart as it cries to HIM on Dean's behalf. Nothing is impossible with God. He is working a good work through you and speaking of HIS mighty love through your actions and attitude. May the Lord continue to give you strength, hope and peace as you walk through this journey.

Deb Haines from Greencastle (July 26, 2012, 5:12 p.m.)


You both have touched the lives of many and I stand in awe at what God has done in your lives so far. I just know that Dean will tell you things that he recalled during these days that you thought he wouldn't know/remember. Your relationship will be even closer than most newlyweds because of this affliction. And, your relationship with the Lord probably has grown as well...a relationship that may have taken more months/years to develop without this trial. God, who has started a good work, will be faithful to complete it!

Dave and Lisa Ziettlow from Midland, MI (July 26, 2012, 2:09 p.m.)


I read that very message last night in my Stream in the Desert edition...and prayed for you. How good to see that our Father comforted you with it! And how precious to see Dean sing to his cherished one. I pray for you daily and specifically thanks to your faithful updates. Lisa

Allison from Harleysville (July 26, 2012, 1:27 p.m.)


Thank you for sharing Deans song from your wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. It brought me to tears to see how his voice grew stronger when you reached for his hand. The love you two share is undeniable. We are praying for Deans complete recovery!

elena Mom from mercersurg (July 26, 2012, 10:01 a.m.)


Today is the day that the Lord has made we will be glad and rejoice in it. Thank you Lord for your grace and mercy that they are new every morning. Isaiah 53:4,5 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were punishment from God for his own sins! But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed! This is the word of the the Lord. Praise the Lord you are standing on His word, Dannielle. We are praying, we will continue to seek, ask and knock. Remember that brick wall will no longer be in your view. The trees, sun and Gods beauty will be in you and Deans vision. John14:14 Yes, ask anything in my name, and I will do it! In Jesus name we ask that you Lord would complete Deans creative miracle, heal Deans broken bones, fractures and bruises, repair Deans eyes, correct Deans vision, repair all of Deans nerves, restore Deans brain, heal Deans lungs, wake Dean up, desolve Deans blood clots.In Jesus name Amen. We love you both, Dad and Mom

Beth from NY (July 26, 2012, 8:05 a.m.)


Continuing to pray for your precious Dean and believing for his full and complete recovery. We are standing in faith with you, praying for peace and strength for you as you continue to stand on the promises of our loving God!

Georgeanne from Hagerstown (July 26, 2012, 8:05 a.m.)


I have tears of joy this morning as I read your latest posting of Dean wiggling his toes and moving his feet to the Borowsky family's music! Thanks so much for posting Dean's song. I play it over and over. You can just feel the love between both of you as he sings Let It Be Me! I've watched him grow from a small child into this beautiful human being we see today. I know at the end of this storm God has a gorgeous rainbow waiting for both of you! I also pray for the day you both can go home together and then walk through our church doors - what rejoicing and praising God there will be!! May He continue to wrap His loving arms around you and encourage you as you daily encourage us with your wonderful postings!

Marelin K Sites from Greencastle, Pa (July 25, 2012, 1:50 p.m.)


I continue to pray for Dean every day. It's obvious what a special man Dean is from all the comments and prayers that are being sent to him. Find hope in the knowledge that he is deeply loved by Dannielle and his family and friends and that many prayers with his name are ascending to heaven daily. May His love bless you today. Exodus 15:26 "I am the Lord that healeth thee."

Rose Marzan from Phillippines (July 25, 2012, 9:23 a.m.)


We dont know ,what words we use to comfort you my dear sister Dannielle and to the loving family of Bro Dean...but I know the Lord of heaven and Earth is sufficient to ease your pain specially in time like this.We are still here ,praying,begging the Lords help for Deans recovery.We trusted a loving and mighty God.Lets keep our faith in Him.God bless you more.

Dannielle, It's amazing to see Dean's progress. I anticipate hearing of each step forward as I click on each new update. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Linda Shull from Warsaw, IN (July 25, 2012, 12:14 a.m.)


I will be praying for him. I am Ruth's friend that you met at their house. I also came to Don's viewing. God will bless all of you and keep you safe at this time.

Leann RN from York, PA (July 24, 2012, 10:50 p.m.)


Dannielle and Dean, Your story has touched my heart in so many ways. Every time I think of you both, I am so thankful for the blessings in my life. I pray that you continue to hope and persevere, and that God brings you a miracle of love. I also pray that you find comfort in whatever the answer to your prayers shows itself to be. It was a privilege to meet such a loving family. I look forward to watching this journey unfold.

Krista-RT from York (July 24, 2012, 2:27 p.m.)


Dannielle- I was so disappointed to hear that Dean was going back to STICU, hoping his stay there will be short. Your spirit is always uplifting when I would come into the room to treat Dean. Thank you for sharing your memories of your wedding video and pictures. Dean has lots of family and prayers around him, I wish and pray the best for him at Kessler. I look forward to positive readings on your site. One day I hope to see you and Dean walking back into York hospital!!! Prayers for Dean- Krista

jackie Higginson from jackiehigginson@elim.edu (July 24, 2012, 10:56 a.m.)


Danielle, I carry both you and Dean in my heart continually. Trusting with you for Dean's complete healing. Our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think. I love you Jackie

Stacy L from Greencastle, PA (July 24, 2012, 10:25 a.m.)


Danielle, I have been so blessed by your blog. I want to encourage you because you have no idea how much of an encouragement you have been to me...and I feel like it should be the other way around. God is so good and he has blessed us abundantly and I can only pray that he continues to bless you with this amazing relationship you have with Christ and Dean. Continue leaning on God and he will get you through. Thank you for being open and honest on your blog so that even though we are not physically with you we can continually pray for Deans needs! Thank you and may God be an ever present light in your lives!

Jay and Sue Horst from Mercersburg (July 24, 2012, 9:53 a.m.)


Continuing to pray for both you and Dean

Helen T from Lima, NY (July 23, 2012, 10:01 p.m.)


Continuing to pray for both you and Dean, but especially for Dean at this time of another challenge... We know that "HE doeth all things well." There are things we don't understand BUT we do know that God is in complete control of Dean. We praise Him for that and continue to pray for complete healing for Dean. Love you much!!!!

Mary Ellen Eshleman from Mercersburg,PA (July 23, 2012, 9:46 p.m.)


Dannielle, as I have read down through the guestbook, I see how God has been using you at York Hospital. The light of Jesus is shining through you. We continue to lift you, Dean and your families to our heavenly Father.

Heather Yoder from York (July 23, 2012, 9:33 p.m.)


Oh Dannielle and Dean, I am sorry to hear of this step backwards in recovery but not dismayed! God has a reason Dean needs to return to STCU and will show this in His time! Be encouraged that full recovery is on the horizon! What a beautiful way to state about the sun coming thru at any time! So true! I am thankful to God that the fever and tachycardia happened while you are still in acute care and that treatment can happen swiftly without delay! God is soooo good!!! Always looking out for us! I am continuing along with you in seeking, knocking and asking and will not accept anything less than His answers that He vows to us will come!! Thank you for allowing me to be part of this journey with you both! See you tomorrow!

Sonia Ortiz from York,Pa (July 23, 2012, 9:01 p.m.)


Hello, Danielle I have been keeping up on Deans recovery sorry to hear that he is back in the unit but he will get better soon. I am still on vacation I wont see you but Dean & all the family will continousley be in our prayers. God Bless

Debbie Haines from Greencastle (July 23, 2012, 7:54 p.m.)


Dannielle, I'm calling your cell phone right now apologizing for not calling you sooner. I just read on FB about Dean's accident! Call me if you need anything...even just need to talk. Need housework done while you're visiting...whatever. Love you!

Jodie Crooks from Jonesville, Louisiana (July 23, 2012, 7:04 p.m.)


God's ways are higher than our ways. Sometimes it is hard to understand, but we know that He is in control of Dean's life and He has done so much already, we are looking for Him to continue this healing process! Our prayers are with you that the Lord will strengthen you in his arms of peace and love.

Misty from Berkeley Springs (July 23, 2012, 2:58 p.m.)

Well today is the big move day. At this time I am sure you are on your way.

Thank You Dear Lord for all that you done & thank you for what you are still doing. Amen

Nurse Liz from York (July 22, 2012, 9:07 p.m.)


Miss seeing you but glad things are moving upward and onward. Looking forward to hearing about rehab! Thinking and praying for you both :)

E Duane Arch from Maugansville, MD (July 22, 2012, 8:15 p.m.)


Dannielle, you and Dean are constantly on my mind and in my prayers. I am so inspired by your faith in God, your confidence in Him, and your positive thinking! Keep it up girl! We will see you both through this! May God continue to bless you!

Shawn McNamara from Shrewbury, Pennsylvania (July 21, 2012, 11:42 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, We met you and heard of Dean's story while our Mom was in the Cardiac ICU. Our 87 year old Mother was in ICU for 18 days and passed away on Friday morning. We were the large, loud family in the waiting room! I wanted to let you know that we have been following Dean's progress and praying for him and your family since the day we met you. At our mom's funeral mass on Monday, we are asking the congregation to lift Dean and you up in pray. Athough we only met you briefly, we were touched by your love and devotion to your husband and God. We will continue to pray and are confident that God's blessings will be continue to be revealed to you both. The McNamara Family smcnamara2@ccbcmd.edu

Boyd Nightenhelser from Indy (July 21, 2012, 7:40 p.m.)

Jeremy R from Morgan City, Al (July 21, 2012, 9:23 a.m.)


I appreciate the daily updates on Dean's condition. I have had the opportunity to interact with Dean at many Fellowship meetings. I've even had the privilege of hosting Dennis and Dean in my home for a fellowship meeting. I have been holding Dean up in prayer since I heard of the accident. I am looking forward to seeing Dean again at a fellowship meeting, completely back to normal! Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Stacy Ziler from Martinsburg, wv (July 20, 2012, 1:36 p.m.)

Barb Miller from Malawi (July 20, 2012, 3:50 a.m.)


Dannielle, we are so encouraged by your reliance on God and the scriptures you share. Is this the Kessler Institute in West Orange, NJ? That's where I've gone since my accident. I have an appointment with my doctor there on Aug. 15.

Elena Mom from mercersburg, PA 17236 (July 19, 2012, 8:07 p.m.)


My dearest Dannielle and Dean, Life is going to change and as you walk into this new phase, always remember that God is in control. You must regularly ask and it will be given to you, you must continually seek and you will find, you must knock habitually and it will by opened to you: for everyone who ask takes, and the one who seeks finds, and it will be opened for the one who knocks. Or what man is there of you , who when his son will ask for bread, will give hime a stone? Or then will ask for a fish will give over to him a snake? Therefore if you, being evil yourselves, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more your Father, the One in the Heavens, will give good things to those who ask Him. Therefore everything that you would want that people would do to you, in this way you must also do to them: for this is the Torah and the Prophets Matthew 7: 7-12 All Mommy can see is HOPE because we serve a big God, and He loves you both. Thank you GOD for Deans total healing and Thank you God for the Strengh as You Heavenly Father substain them both. Love you, Mom

Judy Cosgrove from Greencastle (July 19, 2012, 5:10 p.m.)


I appreciate the daily updates. I check them hoping for positive signs and yet any news is welcome. Continue to keep all of you in my prayers.

Kathy Helm from Whitetail (July 19, 2012, 1:31 p.m.)

Hi guys - I am a friend of David Shenberger's (which is where I learned about Dean's accident). I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for his full and complete recovery!

Denise from McConnellsburg, PA (July 19, 2012, 7:38 a.m.)

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (July 19, 2012, 4:51 a.m.)


\0/ I AM PRAISING OUR DADDY GOD \0/ I have so enjoyed reading the progress that Dean has had. It is so encouraging to hear of so much activity from Dean. I loved the comment from Dannielle about watching him as if new parent watching their newborn , as Dean is coming back. I can not wait to hear what Dean has to say and how things where for him during these times of his journey through all of this I am sure it will be an awesome testimony of encouragement and strength. As my thoughts and prayers are with Dean, his loving wife and dear family I am so very encouraged by their faith love and pure heart for God's will. How it lights my path in life every day. Thank you so much for your daily post it delights my heart to see how our Daddy God is good... all the time. I continue to pray for you and yours daily. \0/

Dennis "Manzy" Phillips from Fredericksburg, VA (July 19, 2012, 1:20 a.m.)


I have not had the pleasure to meet you but I am praying for you and Dean daily. I have attended services through the years at Hagerstown and enjoy, and respect, God's people and the good spirit I sense there. Just want you to know how much I greatly respect you all for staying true to God and not wavering from what you know to be the right way to live - holy. God continues to answer your prayers and will bring Dean around. Dean will awaken to a God that is still on the throne, who hears prayers, and also answers them. He will tell you so.

Dan and Lois Long from Mercersburg (July 18, 2012, 3:58 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle and Family, May God continue to give strength and grace in your journey of faith. We are praying for Dean, as well as our church-Welsh Run Church of the Brethren. Your testimony of faith is an inspiration for us all.

Lydia & Tom Christman from Mercersburg (July 17, 2012, 11:47 p.m.)


Dannielle, we are constantly praying for Dean's complete healing. I check the blog every night for an update on Dean's progress. There are nights that I cannot read the updates without tears. I wish I could wind back the hands of time so that the accident would not have happened. I look upon your faith in God and it helps me believe that Dean will be healed and returned to you as good as new so that you two may continue your love story. I don't believe that God would give you such a wonderful gift as Dean just to take him away. May God be with you both and bless you each and every day of your lives. I Love you Dannielle, like you were my daughter and I am here for you in whatever way you may need.

Eldon Lehman from Mercersburg (July 17, 2012, 9:51 p.m.)

I am praying with and for you and Dean, that he makes a full recovery and that you be sustained through this time. Tim joins me in wishing you the best. Much love, Maria

Jennie Gilmer from Minnesota (July 15, 2012, 10:16 p.m.)


Dear Dean & Dannielle, I just want you to know that I and my family have been checking this site & praying frequently since we heard about the accident. My heart goes out to you both as you take this journey. I'm praying that as you lie down to sleep this night, may Our Father rise up and fight for you! May He, through this battle, draw by His Spirit your loved ones who do not love Him. May He bring the breakthrough where there's only been a roadblock. May you remember this day and everyday that the battle is the Lord's! Sleep well tonight knowing God fights for you! Blessings, Jennie

Esther Gwan from Baltimore MD (July 15, 2012, 9:22 p.m.)


Hi Dean, You are in our prayers as we praise God for all the creative miracles He is accomplishing in your life. WE praise God for new facial bones and supernatural healing to your brain. We believe in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the power in His blood that your life is in the hands of the Lord and He is using the medical institution to glorify His name through your healing. Blessings in abundance.

Sue Witmer from Mercersburg, PA (July 15, 2012, 8:59 p.m.)


Dannielle, Please know that you and Dean are in my prayers daily. Thanks for the updates. What a great inspiration to see the prayers that are being poured out on your behalf from all over the world. Our God truly is AWESOME!

Shaunna Barnhart from Puerto Vallarta (July 15, 2012, 7:57 p.m.)


Dannielle and Dean I just wanted to let you know that I think about and pray for you daily. I read the updates everyday and am continually encouraged to see how God is answering our collective prayer. You are both so blessed and loved.

F. Powers from Chambersburg PA (July 15, 2012, 6:23 p.m.)


I saw your message(s) on Facebook and I am holding you and your loved ones up in prayer for strength, rest, and healing. Blessings to you all.

Praying for you Danielle and your husband!

Ann Davis from Essex,MD (July 15, 2012, 9:06 a.m.)


Going to Church now. You can be assured that your names are called out to God in Essex every time we meet and in our prayers throughout the days.

kendra from California (July 15, 2012, 1:03 a.m.)


I've never met you guys, but am praying for you and your husband! It's good to hear the updates and God's precious promises. Keep looking to Him!

David and Barbara Parsons from Morgan City, Alabama (July 14, 2012, 11:49 p.m.)


We have signed the guestbook before, but wanted to let you know that we are still praying for Dean. God has brought you and Dean this far, don't think that he won't carry you thru until Dean is completely recovered. We will continue to pray for God's grace and healing power to fully restore Dean and help you in this trying situation. God raised up my daughter a few years ago after the doctors had did all they could do to a full recovery. He can do the same for Dean. There will be a future time when you will look back on this and remember how God was a true strength and very present help. Be encouraged that our God has all power for every situation, including this one.

Jodie Crooks (July 14, 2012, 10:46 a.m.)


My favorite verse is Psalm 46:5. God is in the midst of her. She shall not be moved. God shall help her and that right early!! A definition of early from Strong's that I like is "of bright joy after night of distress". I believe that God has healed Dean! Healing is a slow process and requires patience and our faith may be shaken during this process, but God SHALL help and that right "after a night of distress"!! Stand on the promises of God!! We are holding you up daily in prayer!

Karen Hawbaker from Mercersburg (July 14, 2012, 9:09 a.m.)


I faithfully read the updates and pray for continued healing. God bless you!

Elizabeth Borowsky from Emmitsburg, MD (July 14, 2012, 12:18 a.m.)


Danielle, Sending you my love and prayers. Thinking about you and Dean every day. I check the site for the daily updates and really appreciate your writing. Please let me know if there is anything I could do. One of these days, we (family and I) want to come and play a concert for you and Dean! Elizabeth

Darrell Sanford from Hattiesburg, MS (July 13, 2012, 1:31 p.m.)


So sorry to hear about Dean's accident. Prayer is being offered here among the church of God at Bellevue in Hattiesburg for his recovery. May God's blessings and mercy rest upon Dean and all the family during this time. Our love and prayers are with you. Bro. Darrell Sanford

Annette Metcalfe from Mercersburg-Whitetail (July 13, 2012, 11:37 a.m.)


Danielle and family, So glad to hear of Dean's improvements every day. He is truly being touched by God's healing hand. I know it is due to the many, many prayers that have been ongoing for him. I am also glad you seem to be in good, positive spirits. Greatly appreciate the updates. Thinking and praying for you, Dean and the entire family.

amanda turner from Brampton, ON (July 13, 2012, 11:01 a.m.)


I have been excited each day to check the news about Dean's progress. God is truly good and merciful! I am keeping Dean and his family in my prayers and it is a blessing to me to see the amazing results of prayer in this case! Wow. It brings tears of joy to my eyes to read about how well Dean is doing!

Pam and Butch Painter from Summersville WV (July 13, 2012, 10:41 a.m.)


Sis Danielle, this is Pam and Butch (the ones in Bro Harleys congregation who told you I used to cry when he left for work but now I cry when he comes home)LOL We are praying much for you and Bro Dean I believe with all my heart you will see him healed. We love you all and are praying for God to continue working this miracle.

God is such a wonderful and faithful God and NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE for Him! Working out the IMPOSSIBLE is His normal work!! Therefore, He will continue to use you and Dean as wonderful examples of His love and His servants that NEVER give up hope!! You are beaming examples to soooo many people in the hospital and community of God's patience and faithfulness!! Keep your beautiful eyes on Our Miraculous Father! He will never fail you and will bring His promises to completion! Heather Yoder

I can tell you it is so uplifting to read his progress and I just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all daily. It is so amazing to see God's wonderful hands of healing at work on Dean daily. God Bless!

Dear Sis, Dannielle & all, Praise the Lord for what He is doing everyday to Bro Dean , truly we are serving a living God and He hears and answers our prayers for him. Sometime in May, when Bro. Dean told me that you are getting married soon, I asked him if you can go with him next time he visits us here in the Philippine Islands that he told me, he is planning to come back with you in December for our convention this year. And I told him, we will be praying & looking forward to seeing you both here this coming Decmber, Lord willing, And I know & believe in my heart that both of you can come to our convention when he's completely healed, Lord willing. Keeping Bro. Dean in our prayers for his complete healing and praying for you all, too. Great is God's faithfulness, He never fails. with so much love & prayers, sis judith

My heart is breaking for you and we will be praying.

Elena Mom from mercersburg, PA 17236 (July 11, 2012, 10:21 p.m.)


I can only see hope for total healing, because this is what I read as Jesus continues to give us His word thoughout the Bible. Matthew 9:27-30 After Jesus left the girl's home, two blind men followed along behind him shouting, "Son of David, have mercy on us!" They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked them, "Do you believe, I can make you see?" "Yes, Lord," they told him, "we do," then he touched their eyes and said, "Because of your faith, it will happen." And suddenly they could see! Dannielle my daughter and Dean my son-in-law, I love you and may you always find the healing that only God above can give you through His word......

Rose Marzan from Philppines (July 11, 2012, 7:24 p.m.)


We will continue to pray for Deans complete healing.A prayer of faith can move mountains.So lets keep believing my beloved.He will do miacle on Bro Deans body.Amen!

Robert Corey from Waynesboro, PA (July 11, 2012, 3:23 p.m.)


Dannielle our prayers go out to you and Dean. I worked with you as a cashier at Whitetail Ski Resort during the 2010 ski season. I have been following Dean's progress and would like to offer you these words of encouragement: "May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13

Christina Kasper from Oklahoma (July 11, 2012, 11:15 a.m.)

Dear Dean, Dean's family, Friends, and Caregivers, My prayers are with you all! I pray the Lord make your feet light as you all run this race together. I pray you find your second wind at mile 20. May new legs carry you at mile 22. May cheers of joy and laughter help you break through the wall at mile 24. May long lost faces greet you at mile 25. May the roar of your supportive crowd fill your ears at mile 26. And may you cross the finish line with your arms victoriously raised in the air with a time never thought possible! This is what my marathon was like last year and I pray the same for you all. Remember to celebrate each and every mile and drink lots of water. :) I am with you running in spirit.

Dear Dannielle and friends, Please know that our Church has been keeping Dean in our prayers these last few weeks. Our people do not know him but nonetheless they feel bound to him. Paul told the Church of Galatia to bear one another's burdens and to fulfill the Law of Christ. Please know that the Black Rock Bible Church is helping to shoulder the burden of prayer. If there is anything else that we can do (or myself) please let us know. We are praying and praising with you! May the Hand of the Almighty God of Creator bless you and keep you!

Dannielle and family- it's great to hear how well Dean is stabilizing I check this page everyday to see how hes doing. It lifts me up hearing the good news because my family has been hit hard in the last few months with my sister finding out she has cancer and now my grandmother who's cancer is spreading through her.

I just wanted to let you know when Bro. Doug Shenberger reported Dean's progress in church last night, the auditorium rang like wedding bells with cries of "Praise the Lord" coming from every person there. Then the sounds of tears of joy came from many ladies and I'm pretty sure men too. It was very moving to see the love for Dean pouring out from all those attending Church last night. We will never stop praying for Dean for God has promised complete healing if we only ask.

Janet Craig from York PA (July 5, 2012, 3:25 p.m.)


Dannielle I was just reading the Way of Truth paper and the message Bro Terry preached in Cayman. He said God's grace is beyond anything we can comprehend. Don't ever underestimated God's grace; and the grace that was back there (in Bible times), we have it today. Paul said (from the Bible) "Through it all, it enabled me. It provided just what I needed. It strengthened and encouraged me. It helped me to go along when I felt I was all alone. Keep the faith Dannielle. I know you know you are not all alone. God give you strength when you sit by your dear husbands bedside.

Jodie Crooks from Jonesville, Louisiana (July 5, 2012, 8:45 a.m.)


We have cried so many tears with you, tears of anguish, tears of distress, but now tears of joy as we sing praises to our God for all He is doing. Like the song says, "Just hold on a little longer, help is on the way". We love you all and are continuously holding you up to God in prayer!

I hope that God sees fit to heal the rest of Dean's body and restore him to as he was before this accident...it is very nice to see how many people are praying along with the family. We know God can do it as we have seen so many improvements in the past couple weeks. Dannielle, you dont know me but I admire your loyalty to your husband and hope that you will be able some day soon to fill him in on these past weeks. Love to you and yours :)

Danielle, I have been thinking and praying for you and your husband Dean. I can only imagine how horrible this time has been for you. My husband also had a motorcycle accident which should have been serious but fortunately for us the miracle was in his lack of injuries. I believe your miracle will be seen through the healing process! I just discovered your blog and read the updates. It sounds like you have already seen many miracles. If you need me to fast or pray for a specific need, I would be more than willing to do so. Love & Blessings, Alicia Rice de Escobar

Keith McGehee from Dayton, OH (July 4, 2012, 1:46 p.m.)

Judy Slater from Ann Arbor, Michigan (July 3, 2012, 3:06 p.m.)


Dannielle and beloved family members, I am the church admin. where Cassandra Taylor just joined, Westminster Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor. Cassandra sent your update site to us this morning and I have forwarded it to our prayer group. Dean's name will appear this Sunday July 8th in our worship bulletin on the prayer list page. Our pastors, Stephen Carl and Cathi King, have also been notified. We now hold all of you up in prayer and praise every day here. There is no separation soul to soul or heart to heart; we are all one in prayer. Judy Slater

Nancy Tirrell from Birdsboro Pa (July 3, 2012, 1:33 p.m.)


I was glad to hear the encouraging news. Keep talking to him, Danielle. I believe he hears you, even if he can't respond. We never know what God is doing behind the scenes. But rest assured, He is being glorified through this.

Georgeanne from Hagerstown (July 3, 2012, 1:23 p.m.)


Your 7/2 posting was so special!! I agree with what Dean wrote to you - God brought you 2 together & God's grace is going to see you 2 thru this rough spot. Dean is so blessed to have you sitting there by his bedside. Your beautiful smile is exactly what he needs to see when he opens his eyes. Our love and prayers are with you both.

Veronica from Buenos Aires (July 3, 2012, 10:15 a.m.)


Dannielle, I am a friend of Dana Dick, I live in Buenos Aires with my nearly 13 years old tween girls (a miracle in my life).

Keep strong, and we'll keep praying. With love in Christ

Carolyn from Hoover (July 3, 2012, 9:46 a.m.)


As I was taking a walk this morning, I was thanking GOD for his mercy, asking for his healing touch, and praising Him! I began to sing in my heart and thought of Danielle. Sitting by her husband's side and knowing her devotion and her praise. Yes, praise to the Lord for His peace in the midst of the storm. How marvelous to know this kind of love from above.

Marelin & Herk Sites from Greencastle Pa (July 3, 2012, 8:35 a.m.)


Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God." The twin commands to not panic and to recognize His sovereighty have been helpful to us during difficult challenges in our lives. Praying for Dean's healing, Dannielle and all the families.

Tera Keplinger from Smithsburg, MD (July 3, 2012, 7:46 a.m.)

Leasure Family from Mercersburg, PA (July 2, 2012, 9:09 p.m.)


This verse jumped out at me: Psalm 27:13-14, "I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!" I suppose it is the COURAGE part that I have focused on. We are thinking of you often.

sharon pequignot from columbia city,in (July 2, 2012, 8:42 p.m.)


Dean,Danielle,Don,Ruthie and all of the family. Remembering you in prayer, I have ask for prayer every Sunday in church. Don't know you Dean and Danielle but by looking at all the pictures I feel I do. Love and prayers

Every day God thinks of you. Psalm 68:19 Every hour God looks after you. 2Thes 3:3 Every minute God cares for you. 1Peter 5:7 Because Every second HE LOVES YOU... Jer 31:3

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (July 2, 2012, 2:54 a.m.)


Psalm 30:2 O Lord my God , I called to you for help and you healed me. As I read through all the people on the guestbook, so many have called out to the Lord for healing of dear Dean, a man of God. As we all read the updates and pray for everything that Dean needs to improve and be healed, in our earthly form seems like so much to ask. But we serve a Mighty God who is of the super natural of things His miracles are not of this earth. So we must see it in the bigger picture. Tonight I was watching Jesus the movie and was reminded of how Jesus was healing those that had waited for a long time for what healing Jesus had for them. I pray that we will still have faith in the healing and power that the Father is touching Dean with every day. We don't always understand the wait but I am sure that Dean and his loved ones are touching many lives with the way they are faithful and hopeful in the name of the Almighty Father. We are the ones that are standing in agreement for Dean and his perfect healing. Heal me, O Lord and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Thank You, Sweet Jesus for hearing our prayers. And thank you for what you have done and what you are going to do. Lord continue to be with Dean, his beautiful and faithful wife and his awesome family. Amen \0/

Kristy Camp from Oriskany Falls (July 1, 2012, 9:17 p.m.)


May the God of all grace continue to keep you both as you journey together on this road. I have been praying for a complete healing of Deans body and mind. Be encouraged that many are standing with you. Blessings

Rex and Becca (Garreau) Cabaltica from Xining, China (July 1, 2012, 8:26 p.m.)


We are remembering you in prayer daily and trusting our loving and faithful Father for His perfect way in each of your lives. We shared about Dean's need at our fellowship yesterday and many in this city are now praying for Dean as well. Blessings to all of you!

Derek and Ruth Hunsberger from Greencastle, PA (July 1, 2012, 6:38 p.m.)


We're praying for you, Dean -- and Danielle too! Danielle, we've never met you, but we love you and lift you up with Dean before God's throne of grace. May He bring healing and joy!

Doug and Cathy from Tallahassee, Florida (July 1, 2012, 5:48 p.m.)

Eldon & Flo Lehman from Mercersburg (June 30, 2012, 11:06 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle and Dean, From deep within we cry out to God with you. Believing that the same dear shepherd that stilled the storms on the Sea of Galilee so that there was "A GREAT CALM" continues to vanquish storms today and in their place bring a tremendous calm! "for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that HE IS ABLE to keep (that which I have committed unto him) against that day." Oh how he loves us. Blessings

Gregg and Karen Brady from Freeport, Pa. (June 30, 2012, 3:24 p.m.)


Dannielle& Dean, I spoke to Nana today and shared this with her. In Matthew a good person was slain and left for dead after the bullies beat him.. A good Samaritan came along and poured the oil and wine on his wounds.. he was HEALED Luke 10. Our Abba Father is pouring out HIS oil of Anointing and Wine in celebration of Dean's life and HEALING also your wounds associated with your Dean's injuries. We want to remind you and Dean and all of the families, friends and loved ones, you are loved with an everlasting love from our Father in Heaven.In these times reach out and put HIS HAND in yours and "EXPECT GREAT THINGS". Jeremiah 17 4 and Isaiah 53-5. We are a phone call away if you need us..We Love you precious child of God...

Leon & Rosalind Martin from Clear Spring Md (June 30, 2012, 10:05 a.m.)


We have known the family for years. As farmers when all our children were small we were neighbors.Keeping each of you in our prayers as you may need to make tough choices and we know we serve a God who cares and heals far beyond our expetations.

Gary & Cheryl from Clear Spring (June 30, 2012, 9:46 a.m.)


Dear Dean and Dannielle, May Gods arms surround you both. We pray He will give you strength to help you go through one day at a time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. In Christian Love, Sincerely, Cheryl and Gary

Brother Matty from Hagerstown Congregation (June 30, 2012, 9:34 a.m.)


Satan does not want this miracle to happen. We must dissappoint him. God is able, God is willing. God bless and comfort Dean's young bride and precious family.

Nancy Tirrell from Birdsboro Pa (June 30, 2012, 7:49 a.m.)


Dear Danielle, I read your updates every day. My daughter in law, Crystal Tirrell, told me about Dean's accident and I've been praying for him and for you and your family. I feel like I am going through this with you in a way, a very small way. Every day when I open the page, I hope for good news. Crystal spoke so highly of you and Dean and your family. She said your love for the Lord and for each other was very evident at your wedding. I do not understand why God is allowing you to go through this fiery trial. We do know He is sovereign and you are both His precious children whom He loves more than we can imagine. You are doing the very best thing possible--drawing near to Him and allowing Him to comfort you, give you peace that passes understanding, and strength for this very tough battle. Know that you are on my heart throughout each day and that many times during the day, I lift prayer up to our Heavenly Father for all of you.

Suzanne Mason from Hayward, CA (June 30, 2012, 12:53 a.m.)


I just heard about Dean's accident, and I'm praying for you, him, and both of your families, Dannielle. I will spread the word that prayer is needed, and my church will be praying for you all as well. Much love in Christ, from California...

At times like this we must rely on our faith, family and friends to get us through, hour by hour. I will continue to pray for Dean's needs, his lovely wife, Dannielle, and the families. God bless you all!

Hannah Acheson from Sioux Falls, SD (June 29, 2012, 11:24 a.m.)


Dean, Dannielle and the whole Shenberger family have been regularly on my mind and heavy on my heart since I learned of Dean's condition yesterday. I am praying for mercy on Dean's body, unspeakable peace and comfort for his family, and a stunned hospital staff as they behold wondrous things that can only be attributed to the Great Healer. "Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..." (Rom. 12:12)

Leon & Rosalind Martin from Clear Spring Md. (June 29, 2012, 8:44 a.m.)


Keeping you folks in our prayers , knowing that we serve a Risen Lord who loves us and will sustain us. A verse for meditation, 1 Corinthians 2:5 - My faith should not stand in the wisdom of man but in the power of God. We are all so grateful for the wisdom God has blessed our physicians with , however, as we know the Lord our creator is the ultimate healer od all sickness. We know that you are surrounded by friends and your church family through all of this.

Catalin & Judy from Mercersburg (June 29, 2012, 3:31 a.m.)


thoughts & prayers are so strongly with you tonight.

Heidi Mason from Penfield, NY (June 29, 2012, 3:21 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle and families, God bless you all! I'm the mom of Jen and Wendy Mason from Campus Target. I was praying for you and Dean, asking God to lead me to what is specifically on His heart to share with you this night. I opened my Bible right to Ezek. 37 and my spirit was stirred within me as I read it. I believe we can prophesy to the bones in Dean's face (leg, ribs, too) to "hear the word of the Lord." (vs.4) And that He is saying, "I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin, and I will put breath and spirit in you, and you shall live; and you shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord." I don't know what Dean's present state is, as I haven't seen an update since Wed., but even if things are not looking good, Jesus is still our hope. He said (vss.9-11), "Prophesy to the breath and spirit,son of man,'Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath and spirit, and breathe upon these slain that they may live.' So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath and spirit came into the bones and they lived and stood up upon their feet..."(I believe He's declaring that Dean will stand again, too). Vs. 12 says to prophesy, "Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open your grave and cause you to come up out of your grave...and I will bring you [back home]..." 14-"And I shall put My Spirit in you and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land. Then you shall know, understand, and realize that I the Lord have spoken it and preformed it, says the Lord." Luke 1:37 "...with God, nothing is ever impossible, and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment." Jer.32:27 "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me?" 17 "Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard for You." Oh my goodness--just turning a few pages, these scriptures "popped out" to me... Jer.29:10b-11 "I will visit you and keep My good promise to you... for I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord...for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome." 30:16-17 "...all who devour you will be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, will go into captivity. And they who despoil you will become a spoil, and all who prey upon you will I give for a prey. For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord..." 31:3 "...Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you." vs.7b "Proclaim praise, and say, The Lord has saved His people...!" vs.16-17 (for families) "Thus says the Lord: Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord; and [your children] shall return from the enemy's land." (meaning not that D & D are not walking with God, but, in the context of your situation, that they are being attacked by him)"And there is hope for your future, says the Lord: your children shall come back to their own country (basically, their land of promise from God). v.25 ...I will [fully] satisfy the weary soul, and I will replenish every languishing and sorrowful person." Mal.4:2-3 "...unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy. And you shall tread down the lawless and wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts." 3:16-17 "Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name. 'And they shall be Mine,' says the Lord of hosts, 'in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels, My special possession, My peculiar treasure....'" Ps.136:26 "O give thanks to the God olf heaven, for His mercy and lovingkindness endure forever!" :)

Sherrie Anderson from Canandaigua NY (June 29, 2012, 1 a.m.)


Awake and praying through your prayer requests and just wanted to encourage you to stand firm, not waivering in your faith for, your God is a faithful God and has promised to never leave you nor forsake you.

Love to you all, Sherrie

Melissa McFadden from Whitetail Resort - Mercersburg (June 28, 2012, 10:54 p.m.)


Dannielle and family, I wanted to share with you that today I spent my 15 minutes of prayer time on a break from work, at Whitetail. I went outside and found a peaceful place that I felt certain Dean would approve of, and spent my time there praying that he is able to have the strength to become stable on his own. You both are so close to my heart, in prayer and every minute of the day. I know how very special Whitetail is for the two of you, as it is where you first met Dean, only to find out that you both had been working there in different departments for the past several years. It is my hope for you that one day you will return to Whitetail together and we can reminiscence of days past. Prayers and strength are being sent you way. Melissa

I have reuested prayer for him through our prayer circle at the Greencastle Church of God and added him to our prayer list. I have been praying through each and every day. The list to pray for is a great idea, I printed it, and I will have it anointed and prayed over again this evening during bible study. We will continue to hold Dean and his family up in prayer until he RECOVERS! With God, all things are possible. Love you in Jesus Kelly Witmer Witmer's Plumbing, Heating and A/C

It is obvious that you have that, that the love you share is already deep and beautiful. We are praying and trusting that the Lord will see you through this and give you many years for your love and closeness to grow deeper.

Dear Dannielle and Shenberger Family, My heart is touched and full of love for you all. We are daily lifting Bro. Dean up in our prayers and praying that God will do a marvelous work here! What a Mighty we serve who is touched by our needs! I know God is with you all right this moment surrounding you with His Loving Arms.Thanking the Lord for the improvement and still holding on that our brother will have complete healing. Here are some verses of encouragement. Psalms 121:1-3 " I lift up my eyes to the hills - where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip - he who watches over you will not slumber;". Love you all...

judith d batalla from paniqui, tarlac philippines (June 25, 2012, 11:28 a.m.)


Dear Sis Dannielle & Shenberger family, Thank the Lord for the update I just read a while ago. Every time I check my account,I keep on checking the update about Bro. Dean. The dear Saints here in the Philippines (those who do not have facebook accounts) will be very thankful to hear of any good report about him because since the accident, we've been praying for him and been receiving text messages asking "how is Bro. Dean doing now?". We are keeping Bro. Dean in fervent prayers & you all, trusting & believing God will answer our prayers and will heal him completely soon. I remember the faith of Elijah with that small sign up on the skies & he knows God answered his prayers. And with those responses from Bro. Dean, we know God is able to do a miracle & strengthen & heal his body as we are serving a living God who hears our prayers. God bless you all the strength & grace you all need these days of trials. We love & care for you all, unworthy servant of the living God, sis judith (in behalf of The Church of God, Philippines)

Dannielle & Dean, continued prayers each and every day. You are both in my thoughts and prayers. Every single improvement is an answer to prayer.

Sharon Wilt from Mont Alto, PA (June 25, 2012, 9:38 a.m.)


Dean and Dannielle and family: Our prayers for fully successful recovery are, indeed, being sent your way. God is able. I am a witness. Scripture says in Romans 8:28, "...All things work together for good, to them that love the Lord..." We also are taught, and are shown through his mercy and kindness, that with God all things are possible. Danielle and Family, we know that you are running this race with Dean, and we are also praying for your strength and courage as you face each day of good news or not so good news. Stay strong for Dean. Let God's will be done, and go with Dean down this road. It is not the road you would willingly choose, but until the direction changes, stay vigilant and God be with you all. Dean has crossed a mighty Jordan already, God is watching over him. I am sincerely yours, Sharon Wilt along with all of my family praying and believing.

Linda Rose Horst from Mercersburg (June 25, 2012, 12:26 a.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I just read your update and was so encouraged to keep asking, keep seeking, and keep knocking in prayer for you and Dean.

Melissa McFadden from Whitetail Resort - Mercersburg (June 24, 2012, 10:18 p.m.)


My thoughts and prayers have been continious since I have heard of Dean's accident. I can't even begin to count how many times each day Dean, Dannielle, or the Shenberger family enter my mind. The visitation on this website is surely a testiment of friends and family's concern for Dean's full recovery My Mother has always told me "when you are going through a crisis in your life, the world around you just seems to stop and the only thing that you can focus on is the situation at hand", over the years I have become a firm believer in her words, and even during this crisis I have had difficultly thinking of any thing but the wellbeing of Dean and his loved ones who surround him. My heart is with Dean's entire family. My family and I continue to check Dean's website daily and look forward to even the smallest signs that his recovery is moving in a positive direction, as I am sure his family waits for by the minute. WIth all the positive energy being sent to Dean we must know that he is aware of those who are surrounding him with love and pray, and will pull his strength from us. Much love, Melissa and family

Toni Horvat from Sabillasville MD (June 24, 2012, 10:14 p.m.)


"But now thus saith the LORD...Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee;..." Isaiah 43:1a,2a Praying that God's presence will be with each of you in a very real way as you pass through this trial.

Kim from Chambersburg (June 24, 2012, 10:03 p.m.)

Bobby, Rosemary and family from Falling Waters, WV (June 24, 2012, 8:14 p.m.)


We are thankful for the answer to prayer in regards to Deans eye response, we are expecting complete healing for Dean. While driving to York on Saturday the last verse of How Firm a Foundation kept coming to my mind, “The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose, I will not, I will not, desert to his foes; That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.” If you can read the other verses also they are very encouraging. Hold on dear ones God will not forsake you during these trying times. We love and appreciate you all. God bless you each one.

Judy Bivens from Mercersburg, Pa. (June 24, 2012, 8:04 p.m.)

My heart aches for you and you are often in my thoughts and prayers. God understands your sorrow, He sees the falling tear, And whispers, "I am with thee," Then falter not, nor fear. God understands your heartache, He knows the bitter pain; O, trust Him in the darkness, You cannot trust in vain. God understands your weakness, He knows the tempter's pow'r; And He will walk beside you however dark the hour. He understands your longing, Your deepest grief he shares; Then let Him bear your burden, He understands, and cares.

Brian Jacobs from Fort Worth, Texas (June 23, 2012, 6:47 p.m.)

I will pass on this advise that I received years ago......take it one step at a time and pace yourself. Your journey is going to last a while. Maintaining your health is going to mean so much to Dean in the long run. Your consistant presense and support is something Dean will be counting on for years to come. So remember to take care of yourselves. If I can help in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me. God bless you all with courage and strength.

Steve & Esther Martin from Hagerstown (June 23, 2012, 9:21 a.m.)


Our heavenly Father giveth strength and grace just when we need it,and I know he will pull you all through this as overcomers. He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater, He sendeth more strength as our labors increase; To added afflictions He addeth His mercy, To multiplied trials He multiplies peace. When we have exhausted our store of endurance, When our strength has failed ere the day is half done, When we reach the end of our hoarded resources Our Father’s full giving is only begun. Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision, Our God ever yearns His resources to share; Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing; The Father both thee and thy load will upbear. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men; For out of His infinite riches in Jesus He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again. We love and appreciate all of you so very much,and know that Jesus Never Fails.

Helen and Phares Bitikofer from Greencastle, PA. (June 23, 2012, 7:21 a.m.)

uncle richard from mercersburg,pa (June 21, 2012, 10:10 p.m.)


Dannielle, I want to share a few things to encourage you. been speaking with Jim since this happened And declaring the word of Life over you and Dean. God has given me a peace concerning this and whenever I think of you and Dean i cant help but give GOD praise.. it tell us in Jer 29;11 His thoughts for you both are good and not evil to give you an expected end. that end is life shalom peace (nothing missing nothing broken) remember Jesus through death destroyed him that had power of death that is the devil... Dannielle that is all forms of death and it includes this. the price of death has been paid already for Dean and satan has no right to HIM. Dean is Gods BELOVED SON AND YOU ARE HIS BELOVED DAUGHTER. in isa 53 our Loving Father tells us it pleased HIM to bruise Jesus he galdly endured death and all its pains just for you and Dean every stripe he took he saw this day and its price has been paid. Dannielle mediatate on Jesus love for you and dean.. according to rom 8;26 as you are with Dean hold his hand praying in the spirit meditating on the Fathers love for you.

Learning to ABIDE IN HIM is the hardest lesson you will ever know, but it's worth it. Looking back one day you will say, 'O, God You are so marvelous in ALL that You do. Why didn't I see it before?'

I can't begin to imagine what y'all are going through, especially you Dannielle, but our Lord does and I'm praying you feel His arms tightly around you and His peace through this storm, and that He, our Healer, would completely and quickly heal Dean in ways beyond the doctors' understanding. P.S. The summit just didn't feel quite right without Dean last year but he's got a pretty great reason for that to have come to an end. =)

Bonnie Bingaman from Waynesboro, Pa. (June 19, 2012, 10:42 p.m.)


Dear Dannielle, I was so shocked and my heart is breaking. When Katie told me about Dean's accident, I started praying for God's healing miracle for Dean. You and Dean and your loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers daily. The Lord declares that he will restore Dean to good health and that He will heal the wounds. when we call for help He will hear our call and He will heal. He tells us that he will heal His people and let them enjoy abundant peace and security. This is God breathed and it is the truth. I pray that you will be blanketed with the peace of God and will have the strength and courage that you need during this journey through this valley. I am looking ahead to the time of your future together husband and wife, mom and dad, nanny and pappy, because i believe in miracles and that God can restore Dean back to supernatural Holy Spirit health. So that you will grow old together. Thank you Father ahead of time for what you are doing and what you are going to do. (((BIG HUG))) to you and yous. \0/

Ronda Baggett from NC (June 19, 2012, 10:39 p.m.)


When I saw one set of footprints in the sand.....Jesus said, My child I would never leave you. In your hardest trial....it was then that I carried you. Lean on Jesus.....you are in His mighty hand, under the shelter of His wing. Praying continually for the Lord to comfort you all and give victory.

Just remember we are praying for all of you! We love you Dean and Danielle! God bless you!

Bob Williams from Williamstown, WV (June 19, 2012, 9:17 p.m.)


To Dannielle and all of the beloved family of Dean: I am without words to convey the sorrow and grief I feel over this tragic event. I'm sure that mine is but a fraction of the great pain those of you who live and love Dean each day must be experiencing. I do know and understand that the tender mercies and promises of God are more than words to your family of faith. As you endure with hope, I am encouraged and blessed to see such a living example of faith in the Creator and Sustainer of life. May you always remember that in His time, He worketh all things together for our good and HIS glory! Not only to work with healing in Dean, but to bring comfort and peace to each of those who love Dean. I was reading in 2 Kings, chapter 4 today about how God over and over wrought miracles to the Shunammite woman through the hand of HIS servant, Elisha. Even at a time when all seemed hopeless and she was helpless, except to act in faith, she was blessed. Her beloved son, who had suffered an injury to his head was raised up by the power of God for HIS glory. It was an enduring, miraculous healing that at least 7 years later (2 Kings chapter 8)we see the mother and son being blessed by the King and all things restored unto their family. I would be amiss to suggest that this is the same plan or purpose for what is happening in your lives at this time. But, I can confidently proclaim that HE is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. Draw near to HIM and rest in HIM knowing that he is not just a sympathetic or empathetic God...He is compassionate above measure! Matthew 14:14 reminds us, "And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick." I will be in prayer for Dean, your strength, and God's touch. Even though I will be working, I will fast tomorrow.

Danielle I have felt a warmth and and wonderful feeling since first meeting you.I believe God brought you and Dean together, there is no understanding as to why this happened. But one thing is for sure we serve an all powerful God, nothing is impossible with God. So hold onto the prayers and good thoughts that are being sent your way. And claim victory in this situation for in Psalms 50:15 it says- And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you! Many prayers are being sent to God from all over the world for Dean and I know God is a loving caring God and he will answer us. I love you both very much.

Hello Dannielle. I know we have never met. I am the youngest sister to Brother Greg Tyler. I am certain your loved ones surround you now as do the saints of God. It does bring great comfort and carries you through. God knows that I have walked a mile in your shoes. And I know how HE held me through a similar trial, one day at a time. 16 years ago, my husband suffered a tramatic brain injury from an auto accident. If I can be of assistance, the Lord knows that I am willing. You,Dean and the entire family are in my prayers. With loving compassion, Carolyn

"Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." ~Isaiah 41:9-10 My husband and I will be praying for you all! We had the privilege of meeting Dean at the SUMMIT a few years ago. Our car broke down on the way home and he stayed back and helped us for the whole afternoon as we tried to get it back on the road... then the next year he helped teach me how to ski. May God bless you with strength and endurance as you go through this trial!
