What’s the story behind the name of Resounding His Love? I get asked this question more times than I can count…”Where and How did you come up with the name Resounding His Love for your website?”
First, Resounding His Love Blog is about finding Hope and Healing in numerous areas. This can not be a truer statement for me personally. Let me Explain about behind the name of Resounding His Love.

Behind the Name of resounding his love
I have always loved music and even led the choir back home in Kentucky where I’m from originally. For me, my “identity” was centered around being a singer and I thought that was the only way God could “use me” to reach others.
Keeping It Real
When singing along with the music you need to actually “hear” how you sound right? So imagine my surprise the one thing I considered made me who I am is suddenly gone.
This was my reality due to a massive fluid backup in my inner ear.Identity is Found in Christ Alone and nothing of yourself! #identityinchrist Click To Tweet
As time goes on my hearing declines more and more. The thing is as humans we can take things for granted and assume they’ll always be there right?
I know I’m not the only one who has come to this conclusion. We always assume, whatever we are taking for granted, will be there forever.
How My Hearing Loss Started
Back in 2010, I had a tender red bump that appeared behind my ear. I thought nothing of it and went to bed. As with every morning when my alarm goes off I get up to turn it off. However, on this particular morning, I couldn’t raise my head off the pillow.
I started crying and told my husband my head hurts so bad! When Mike turned the light on he was in complete shock. He said, “Hunny, you’re not going to work today, because we’re taking you straight to the Dr right now!
In all seriousness, Dumbo had nothing on me! The whole left side of my face, ear, and neck were super huge, fire red and hot to the touch! That’s what started my hearing loss. I’ve seen many ENT Specialists and to this day they have no clue what caused this to happen.
Side Effects of my Hearing Loss
I now have only 15% left in my left ear and I have 30% gone from my right. Due to living with autoimmune disorders I have major allergies.
Hearing Aids are useless for me
In all honesty, I’d love to be able to wear hearing aids. However, the audiologists have tried three different kinds with the same results.
Every time they place them in my inner ear inflates and becomes infected. So they’ve come to the conclusion whatever the molding is made of I’m allergic to. Go figure right?

Never allow a disability to stop you from what God is calling you to do! #trustgod #hearingloss Click To Tweet
Since losing my ability to sing I thought I was no longer able to reach people with the Love of Christ. I prayed for God to show me how he wanted to use me.
Receiving Clarity and Confirmation
And God did just that by two individuals on the same day. I finally “got it!” God wanted me to share his grace, mercy, and love through blogging.
However, I was still struggling with a name. God had a plan for that as well. See friend, what I considered a ‘loss’ from an eternal perspective it’s “gain!” I hadn’t been viewing my hearing loss from an eternal perspective at all.
That being said, God and his tender loving-kindness continue to teach me throughout my hearing loss who and where my “identity” comes from…HIM!
Resounding definition: A sound loud enough to reverberate
Now you will understand the “WHY” behind the name…I may not “hear” well but you will “hear” me Resounding the name of Christ! This is done by proclaiming the gospel via the internet.
In Closing on Behind the Name
The one thing on “Behind the Name” I want you to keep at the forefront of your mind is to never allow a disability to stop you from what God is calling you to do.
The only thing You and I must do is get “self” out of the way and “LET GO & LET GOD” do the work in our lives that ONLY he can do.
There’s a very special friend of mine I want to introduce you to. She doesn’t let anything stand in the way of changing lives for Christ. Please go check out Wendy Wallace from One Exceptional Life…You’ll thank me later!
