Introducing Me

Hi!  My name is Jill D. Allen, wife and mother of two teenaged children.  My life growing up seemed pretty enviable from the outside looking in.  My parents were initially blessed with two sons.  The eldest expiring at age 4 with leukemia. As devastating as that was my parents went on to have 3 more children, all girls.   My father was a very intelligent man, enjoying  success as a Civil Engineer.  Providing very well for his family.   I guess I’d have to categorize us as upper-middle class.  All of our needs were met, and then some.  My father was a good “provider.”

I’d like to begin my story where I began “My Life Journey,” as I call it.  A.K.A., “My Spiritual Life Journey”.  This, for me, was at  age 22, after surviving a car accident that completely changed the course of my life.  A major car accident.  I suffered a traumatic brain injury and partial paralysis of my right arm.  I was no longer “ME”.  Thus began my conscious journey to find my “LOST” self!!!  I was “LOST,” folks, and Thank God, I began looking… for “ME,” along THIS… “My spiritual life journey”.  Amen.

Years of continued…struggling???  TO survive “LIFE”???  After surviving the car accident.  I spent years searching and searching for the medical diagnosis that would explain EVERYTHING!!!  Glimpses of the truth had been revealed, however, I absolutely REFUSED  to even  consider that “MY” life had been touched by such evil during childhood.  Yep, “LIFE” had sure been difficult.  I had chosen, however, to survive it by denying it.  God finally revealed the truth.  The missing puzzle piece of my life that would allow all those shattered pieces to begin fitting together…AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!!!  This, is “My Life Journey,” folks.  A.K.A.:  “My Spiritual Life Journey”.  Amen.

I have been married for almost 18 yrs. now to Christopher, my soul-mate.  We have two children, 16 yr. old Danielle and 14 yr. old Chase, as of Aug., 2013. Great kids.  We have truly been blessed.  Two dogs, 1 golden retriever and 1 black lab, complete our family.  Career wise, I chose to enter the medical field as a COTA, now possessing 23 yrs of experience, most of which has been treating  the elderly in Nursing Homes. LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Recent turmoil, EVERYWHERE, in every aspect of life has really, let’s say…”disturbed” me.  A riot breaking out during a Memorial Day celebration in Jacksonville, FL…what???  Are you serious!?!   Citizens rioting at a celebration to honor the great men and women who have sacrificed their lives, fighting for OUR freedom!!!  And 3 young women, rescued in OH after being held captive and tortured for years by some crazed man.  Oh, and then there were those devastating tornadoes, thereby resulting in death and destruction by the hand of Mother Nature!  Trying to manage my personal “plate of crap” on a daily basis.   Recent, let’s say…difficulties at work.  And and on and on and on.  All occurring, BOOM, in what seemed like a rather short time period, during mid year,  2013!!!  STOP!!!  It’s ALL hitting me at once!!!  I can’t take ANY more…

Is this all leading to our end?  What can we do to turn things around?  I’m feeling a “NEED” to, at least, try to make a difference in this country…in this WORLD!!!  I’m asking that you please join me.  Perhaps, together, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!   Ready to start the journey?  Here we go…

  1. Hi Jill,
    I see you have some experience with God helping you along the way.
    May I ask if you are born-again into the family of God through the Blood of Jesus?

  2. It was a pleasure meeting you. Please let’s stay in touch and get together soon. I believe we can make a difference!

  3. I just want to say thank you for the team that helped me when I was recovering and when I met you Jill, I could see when one is a child of God, it is in their eyes, the way they carry themselves, and you displayed a desire to always want to grow in God’s word and have that intimate relationship that He wants us all to have with the Father. Our lives met then as I was in need of help, you all were there, working together as 1 team, unified as 1 team, and always carried a smile because inside you He lives!yiC
