Prayers for Anissa

I first met the amazingly talented Anissa Mayhew at the Tampa Blogher Meetup.  Since her untimely stroke, a super mom, uber blogger has been trapped inside her head.  Every day I pray for her release and recovery.  I pray that Anissa, her family and her husband, Peter, find the strength to pull through this.


To follow her road to recovery, please visit her blog, Hope4Peyton.

 Prayers for Anissa


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    Denise –
    I do not know Anissa… But now I do. I just spent a chunk of time reading her husbands posts. My heart is broken for this family. I just prayed for her health. I told God that she is not done with her work here. When she wakes up she will be an advocate for advocates.. meaning… don’t let the doctors give up. What an amazing woman – and her husband… her rock. It is NOT her time to go, I pray for that.

    Strokes are so awful! I remember my grandpa after he had his and I could see the frustration in his eyes and on his face whenever he attempted to communicate. I can’t imagine how frustrated Anissa must feel right now. My prayers are with her and her family.

    Wow and look at how hot she is looking in that photo too! I’ve thought about her a lot since the stroke. Hits close to home when it happens to a fellow mommy, especially one the same age.
