Da Vonne Lee

November 7, 2014, our oldest daughter was involved in a terrible car accident resulting in several broken bones and a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). That life changing moment has forced us to find a "new normal". Due to the extent of her brain injury, Brittlyn was never expected to wake up and yet God has done a miracle in her life! She is very alert and aware and is working hard to recover all she lost.

One amazing thing we discovered through her early recovery days, was that even though she was unable to have an ineligible conversation and couldn't always recognize us, she was able to sing EVERY WORD of Scripture she had hidden in her heart from the many many songs we had created over the years. PRAISE THE LORD!!! We SAW the power of God's Word right before our eyes!!

Hebrews 4:12 - The Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE...
2 Corinthians 4:16 - Though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed!!!

Our little Bella, born July 8th, 2007; was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly after entering this world. Along with many other medical issues, Bella was dually diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) in April of 2013. Guess what!!? Our resources have been a POWERFUL tools for HER to get God's Word tucked in her heart too! Even though it is difficult for her to say what's in her head, she KNOWS God's Word, and it is powerfully and effectively molding her into Christ's likeness. :)

How did all this start?

In 1994, I began teaching my children to memorize the Word of God in creative ways. Naturally, what we had been doing at home just spilled into VBS, Sunday School, Caravan classes, Children's Church, Homeschool groups and even Bible Quizzing. My children and I began to lead workshops teaching others what God had shown to us. The impact it has had on the children around us has been nothing short of amazing.

I have seen "tough" kids, usually boys, who stand in the back, arms crossed, saying with their faces, "There is NO WAY I'm going to memorize ANYTHING!" having the time of their lives and asking for more. Instead of "Do I have to?", Bible memorization has not only become enjoyable but many times the favorite activity at an event. Isn't God GREAT?! With His guidance and creativity, I have seen children as young as 3 years old memorize entire BOOKS of the Bible. Praise the Lord! And they remember it!!! - Even the references!!

Well, who am I? My name is DaVonne Lee. I am wife to Cameron and mother to 17 wonderful children; Five live in heaven with Jesus, and we have home schooled the remaining 12 who have been left in our care (Brittlyn, Berrick, Bryce, Blake, Brandon, Bradly, Bowen, Brynn, Bella, Brayah, Braven, and Bodhi.

Before attending Mid-America Nazarene College and traveling in their PR groups for two years, I sang with Continental Singers traveling across America, Holland, France, Belgium and Germany. In February of 2002, I joined the staff of Westside Church of the Nazarene serving as their Worship Arts Ministry Leader. When available, we lead workshops to demonstrate creative ways we have learned to Hide God's Word and Keep it there - thus our ministry name: Hide & Keep!
