I thought it was about time you started meeting us one by one. So it seemed I should be the first, as the blogger and director of Praising Hands.
I first began learning sign language as a child when my friend, who is deaf, communicated mainly through sign language and gestures. Later, while working on a Special Education Credential, I was required to take a course in ASL, American Sign Language.
All of my life I have been interested in music. Besides learning to play more than one instrument, I was in orchestra all through high school. I also had dance lessons as a child and was involved in various folk dancing groups throughout my younger life. During my first two years of college, I was a music major. There fore I was in orchestra and choir.
When, after joining our church, someone talked to me about the desire to form a Signing Choir, these two parts of my life came together. And the rest of the story you know form a previous post.
Thank you for visiting and may God bless.
