Yesterday I walked into the dentist office holding my breath! I was so excited and so nervous for the work to begin on my front top teeth. All of the other appointments and surgeries resulted in new teeth that no one could really see. This appointment was the one really would make the difference and change everything. After four plus hours in the chair with my awesome dentist, Sarina and her assistant Dawn it was over. Well over for a few weeks. Each crown requires time where the lab is creating the actual permanent tooth that will cap the old tooth that is prepped for it. So I currently have 9 temporaries in my mouth while all of the final impressions are sent to the lab and Joe the genius there figures out how to fit everything together and make it beautiful! Right now half of the top of my mouth has a temporary bridge. Yes one of my gaps is bridged, covering a space I have had since 2007. Before that it was all rotten teeth! But my right side will not be filled until the final appointment where they will place my permanent implants on that side. But the result just from one side being filled was dramatic!

Six years ago I took a break from YWAM Perth to go on furlough and to pursue my teeth being fixed. During that furlough I lost my mom, Connie, in a car accident and through this devastating loss I have fought to also take care of myself and this included getting my teeth fixed! I am finally getting to see my dream come true and I also get to share it with all of you! My mom’s two big prayer requests for me were that I would be free from college debt and have my teeth fixed! I am a testimony of her prayers (and so many others who have prayed for me!). Today I am free from the debt of my college loans and next month my teeth will be completely finished! Thank you to everyone that has been a part of this process and the reality of my miracle coming true!!
