Friendships That Transcend ~ Urgent Prayer for Joanne
Today when I logged in to my Facebook there was News in the Feed that I did not want. One of my first blog friends and subsequently In Real Life friend, Joanne at The Simple Wife, has suffered a stroke and undergone surgery today. I can’t tell you how this has just shaken me and so many others to the core. She’s 38, takes excellent care of herself, has a terrific family. She’s the kind of friend you can talk to about everything or nothing. I’ll never forget first meeting her in San Antonio and my being amazed at how tall she is and her at how short I am. We had great fun with it. Okay, maybe her more than me. The look on my face is my response to her heckling me over my height. (Great. Sydney just saw this picture and said, “Man, mom. You’re a shrimp.”) Thanks.
I’m fully believing God for complete healing and that in a short time we’ll be having great fun with Joanne again.
Would you please, please join me in intercession for her, husband Toben, and daughters Audrey and Emma?
UPDATE: Joanne’s friend Janna has posted an update and a request on a way we can help on her blog. Please visit!

So sad…Praying with you all! Expecting God to do BIG things!
Still praying here, too, Lisa! :( So sad.. and I remember those pictures, well.
It was that same exact Siesta trip that I met both you and Joanne for the first time. How much of a treasure you ladies are to me, you’ll never know. I hope to get to know both you and Joanne better on the flip side of all of this.
I am amazed at all the people who are going to the Feet of our Father in prayer for Joanne!! I being one of them. Praying for and Believing IN FULL Healing and Restoration for Joanne!
Love you sweet Sister,
Praying, Lisa. I saw the news about her on the LPM blog. Going to check out the update. Please keep us posted. He is faithful!!
