Website and Magazine shoot!!

Today I met with Steve. He started a wellness messenger newsletter and last year started a website/community along with a magazine printed a few times a year. He wanted to feature me in the magazine coming out in January. I thought it was a great opportunity to spread my message of how important Organ Donor's are to their recipients. It was just a short video clip of my message along with some great photo's. I will be receiving copy and credit for the work. I LOVE sharing my story and inspiring hope, and raising awareness of the need for Donors. I wish I knew the name of my donor~ I hope someday I will be able to share with her family all the things I have accomplished because of their sacrifice.

*To answer a question from one of my readers. . . . I wrote a letter to my Donor's Family January 2009. I gather the mail everyday hoping that a repy letter will be there. I want to hear from my donor family terribly. I told them how much I love my donor despite not even knowing who she is. I shared with them parts of my life and who I was. . . and who I can be now~ I may never hear back from them, but I will always love them and honor my unknown donor. :)

well done Jamie! Have you written your Donor family? I would give anything to hear from even one of my mother's recipients, still waiting after 5 years, maybe someday

I found your blog through a Google Alert notice, and only now just figured out that you're the same Jamie that my girlfriend, Ashley, talks about! How odd!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
