Not exactly sure where to begin. I never find it easy to talk about myself..hahaha! My friends and family can describe who I am much better than I probably could. But…here it goes! ūüôā

Firstly.. I am a “FOLLOWER” of Jesus Christ. Above anything else, I seek God in all I do. I strive daily to be more like HIM and seek HIS will for my life.¬†

I am the wife of one of the most patient, loving, sacrificial, hardworking, God-fearing man I know ~ “Neil Root” https://www.facebook.com/neilroot! He truly is the love of my life. He never gives up on anything, especially ME! His family has taken me in with¬†immense¬†LOVE¬†and have helped Neil and I out on so many levels..we are beyond blessed!!!

I have a twin sister (Deana), an older brother “Jason” & younger sister “Joanne. Who I love dearly! Family is VERY important!!! xo

My parents are truly “out of this world”. ¬†I know …we all feel that way about our parents! Hahah! They are now retired from ministry. They were Pastors for 35 years. No words can express how grateful and blessed I am to have them in my corner. Even when I was far away from God they never gave up on me. They have sacrificed so much for their children. I don’t know if I could ever repay them back for all they have done. But beyond that..they have always made a stand for Jesus and nothing can ever compare or come between the connection my family has because of God’s Holy Spirit in all of us! They have represented and continue to represent what it means to let the light of Jesus shine! If there’s one thing I am truly thankful for ..it is that I had Parents who loved the Lord and made sure I knew about HIM! xo

I am a singer/songwriter for the band “3rd Stratosphere”: ¬† https://www.facebook.com/3rdStratosphere. My husband is the drummer, DJ, & singer/songwriter¬†and my twin sister “Deana Hoyles” https://www.facebook.com/DeanaHoyles¬†singer/songwriter, plays piano and guitar. I LOVE music..of all genres..but have to admit I am a huge fan of Hard Rock, Metal & Electronic/Trance!¬†

I love cooking, not to much of a baking fan, though I have learned new recipes since I found out I had a few allergens to some foods. So I’m getting better with each recipe. I really enjoy cooking the main course though. Less science to it..hahaha..I’m more of a “taste as you go” kinda gal..whereas baking is more ..precise.

I love to draw and paint. I slacked off for several years but I’m getting back into it again. I’m currently working on a kids book with my Mom “Beverley”. Check out her “Blog” here:¬†http://feetfirstbook.wordpress.com/

Here is a list of several other of my loves:

Calligraphy,¬†Martial arts,¬†Horse back riding,¬†Exercising (MaxT3:¬†http://www.maxt3.com/),¬†Snowboarding,¬†Dancing,¬†Biking,¬†Healthy Eating, Motorcycles, Motocross, Nascar, Tennis, X-box 360, Loving Animals (Especially love – Lions, Turtles & Dogs), Fashion, Cleaning, Watersports, Bowling, Olympics, LOVE the outdoors – boat rides, I am a big fan of Spring & Fall..not a huge fan of Summer, unless it is a mildly hot day, I do love Winter when it’s not to cold/storming…it’s SO beautiful when the snow has fallen…Christmas is my FAV time of year. Though very busy…it brings back so many fond memories.

I’m just a gal who is trying her best. Though often stricken down with migraines and working with specialists to find out the answers..I push through the pain as best I can..though some days are far worse than others.¬†But I know God’s gonna bring me through it.¬†

Every day I am learning new things, and though I make mistakes, I make sure to learn from them!

My main goal for creating this blog is to uplift YOU! Whether it be, helping you make some healthy choices (ie: recipes I will post and other informative blogs/links about improving your health). Or some of my fav music videos/songs or just ones that I hope will bless you. From time to time I will post poems, lyrics to songs and scriptures/devotionals that I hope will impact you in a positive way and breath HOPE into your day! I just want to speak truth, but also show LOVE, kindness and be here for anyone who needs help! 

With ALL my LOVE,

~ Donna ~

Ps. here is a song that blesses me every time I hear it! I pray it will touch your spirit! xo

“NOT FOR A MOMENT‚ÄĚ
(Meredith Andrews, Jacob Sooter, & Mia )
Vertical Church ‚Äď Live Worship

You were reaching through the storm
Walking on the water
Even when I could not see

In the middle of it all
When I thought You were a thousand miles away
Not for a moment did You forsake me
Not for a moment did You forsake me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are Sovereign
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Not for a moment will You forsake me

You were singing in the dark
Whispering Your promise
Even when I could not hear

I was held in Your arms
Carried for a thousand miles to show
Not for a moment did You forsake me
Not for a moment did You forsake me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are Sovereign
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Not for a moment will You forsake me

Every step, every breath You are there
Every tear, every cry, every prayer
In my hurt, at my worst
When my world falls down
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Not for a moment will You forsake me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are Sovereign
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Not for a moment will You forsake me
