You-ooh Are Someone To Love ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, January 2, 2018

photo found on Snowangelz

In the roughly ten years that I have been a fan of this young man, David Archuleta, he has come a long way, in terms of talent and stage presence, speaking to the public at large, sharing personal stories, overcoming shyness, and embracing confidence issues, as  he calls them. He has grown up! He has already learned how to ward off rude questions posed by interviewers.

However, as a parent, there were many times (in an alternate universe) when I wished I could have helped him in his journey, when I could have told him that it’s okay when he makes a mistake during a performance, that he is so past having to explain any blunder and that it happens to everyone.

I wish I could encourage him to use his genius as a musician to give him the strength he needs to overcome his shyness. And that we, his fans adore him, flaws and all.

I wish I could tell him that he owns every stage he performs on and not to be alarmed when he sees thousands of us in the audience, waiting for him to sing. When you’re that talented and charismatic, the audience just wants to be part of your universe.

There. I said it. 😀

David Archuleta ~ Hope all had a wonderful Christmas and Wishing all a happy New Year!

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, December 26, 2017

David wished us a Merry Christmas in two posts with beautiful messages!

I had to post one more for the holidays. I guess my ugly #Christmas sweater scared all the kids from wanting to stand next to me. 😂 their jammies were jammin' though! I shared this verse with my friends and family and thought it would be good to share it with all of you as well! "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." – Isaiah 9:6 May we remember the reason behind the season everyone. Joy to the world! A Savior is born! The Prince of Peace. Let's carry the Christmas spirit forward and #lighttheworld . Enjoy your time with loved ones and let's see how we can lighten someone's day with an act of kindness. Merry Christmas everyone!🎄🌟

David and family out visiting neighbors today!

Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year. I’m so thankful I got to spend it with the people I love most. We spent today visiting the people in the neighborhood we grew up in. The Rowley’s (first photo) changed my life. Mr. Rowley is the most incredible man and he radiates God’s light. He was our former bishop and helped and cared for our family when we especially needed it. Thinking about the conversations we’ve had brings tears to my eyes. I would not have been able to make it through that time in my life 4 years ago if he had not been there. Him and his sweet wife are angels! Mr. Walton (2nd pic) is another amazing man. His incredible wife Mary passed away this year. They were always serving others together and thinking about how they could improve another persons life. We were able to go visit him and Ella (an elderly lady who has the coolest Christmas setup) and sing for them. Brother Walton gives the best hugs EVER, so I’m so happy David got a pic of it, haha. What have you guys done for Christmas today? Merry Christmas!

Thank you all for an amazing year 2017!  David has been more than I ever imagined, a slow start but then full speed ahead!  And 2018 looks to be more amazing the 2017!  Hang on y’all!

David Archuleta at 2017 ANASAZI Foundation Gala ~ Patty aka Djafan attended!

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, November 12, 2017

Hello everyone! I’m home!  I had a wonderful trip to Arizona this weekend!  When I received the alert that David would be in Arizona at the Anasazi Gala Event I asked my hubby if he wanted to visit his brother in Arizona on the weekend of the event and we went.

Knowing that David is very selective in the causes he supports I read everything I could about this foundation and it’s work. Since I was going to be making a hefty donation to attend, I wanted to know what I was supporting because of David.  I was greatly impressed with what they do for the troubled and their families.

The event started with a silent auction.  I bid on a couple of things and was successful in one!  This was the first online auction I participated in.  I receive an alert every time I was outbid with an invitation to rebid; it was fun.

credit picture djafan

I chatted with a couple of “Walkers”, the name of those that lead or have been part of this program.  I noticed that many of them wore small medicine bags hanging around their necks. I asked why.  They explained that in the walk when they accomplish a goal they select an item to put in the bag and carry it close so they remember these things were part of the healing of their hearts.  I was moved and knew that David’s light had lead me there.                          

The doors opened at 6:30pm to a beautifully decorated ballroom.  Everyone was assigned a table and I being a single attendee was seated in a great seat in a table sponsored by Hundai.  My table mates were warm and friendly.

They did an incredible presentation with various speakers and alumni of the program, very moving.  Following the light, having an inner light, sharing one’s light was a common thread among all who spoke.  David was a perfect fit for this event.

David was announced and bounced out on stage with Brady by his side.  David sang and spoke beautifully just as always.  When it was over Brady was collecting stuff from the stage and I went over to speak to him.  He is so sweet and kind and uber talented.

I saw Kari and she looked gorgeous.  She was surprised to see me lol  This was the first time ever I didn’t see anyone I knew in a filled room.  I went over to an area where several were congregating in front of huge double doors and saw Firefly group of singing sisters.  I couldn’t believe Maddie recognized me from Queens Creek.  Maddie sang Don’t Give Up with David , the best duet partner for this song to date IMO.  I asked to take a picture of them and they asked me to join them. I said why not. lol

Well I found that this group were big sponsors of Anasazi and were going to have a photo op with David.  I was so lucky that they let me take part being a single donor and all.  They were going in a groups and I went in by myself.

David glowed and he said hey you! Oh my gosh, I said I came!  He asked how I found out about it. I told him an online alert and I asked my husband if he wanted to visit his brother in Arizona.  I told David my husband asked if  by any chance David was going to be there, I said yes.  David started laughing that laugh of his lol.  He asked where’s your husband?  I said visiting his brother, more laughter.  I thanked him for singing, for his light, for him being him, for his message, for not giving up on his gift, can you tell I was a tad excited?  haha.  The photographer asked me to stand next to David for the picture, I said oh yeah lol.  Took the picture and said bye until next time. He thanked me for coming and supporting such a worthy cause.

I took video of the entire singing and talking of David.  I apologize for the shakiness, for  cutting his head off at times, and for my squeals.  lol  I tried really hard to stay still, without any success.  At the end all the Walkers come to the front during David’s last song.

I don’t like the way it narrows but it happens when it gets uploaded. I hope you guys enjoy it.

Leaving the information for Anasazi for anyone who may be interested.

The ANASAZI Foundation is an organization headquartered in Arizona that has served families by introducing them to the wisdom of the the Navajo Indians,  also known as “wise teachers” or “ancient ones”.  It doesn’t surprise us that David, with his philanthropic heart, love of nature and respect for humankind, was involved in this event that was not heavily advertised. David  performed many songs, including “Up All Night” and “Invincible”.

“Founded in 1988 by renowned wilderness pioneers Larry Olsen and Ezekiel Sanchez, ANASAZI gives young people an opportunity, through a primitive living experience and a philosophy that invites healing at the hands of nature, to effect a change of heart—a change in one’s whole way of walking in the world. ANASAZI’s licensed and nationally accredited outdoor behavioral healthcare programs are non-punitive—its caring and patient staff is focused not on bad behaviors, but on helping young people discover and nurture the “seeds of greatness” which lie within. To those at ANASAZI, the wilderness is not a harsh place to break youth down, but rather a safe place—a place free from distractions where one can learn, ponder, and build.

ANASAZI’s family-focused intervention programs (for youth 12-17 and young adults 18-25) are recognized worldwide for their unique and caring approach to treatment. ANASAZI’s preventive efforts—including parenting workshops and community drug awareness/education forums—have inspired two international best-sellers (Leadership and Self-Deception and The Anatomy of Peace), an Emmy-nominated drug abuse prevention campaign, and peacemaking techniques used as far away as the Middle East.”

  • davidarchie  Every 6 months I take a little weekend break, wherever I might be, to listen to my church’s world conference. Yesterday I was able to attend in person. My heart hurts hearing about another shooting in Vegas. In a world where so much is going on, with natural disasters, shootings, hate, wars, depression and anxiety, fears, and so many other things going on we ask ourselves “Where can I turn for peace? Where is my solace?” That’s what speaker Jean B Bingham talked about in the conference yesterday morning. Sometimes it’s hard to trust. But there is a source of healing, and that is from Christ. Jean Bingham also mentioned there is a way to become free from the constraints of our own misunderstanding. Well, how? One way I’ve gained it is watching and listening to men and women of God in these conferences. I loved how a big emphasis was on trust and to “lean not unto [our] own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) my love is with the victims of the recent Vegas shooting, and also with the many still recovering from the natural disasters. I’m left asking however (as powerful as prayer is) what more can I do than just thinking about them and praying. Let’s allow sad things to bring us together, become united and do something to help others. May our prayers turn us to action. We can be the helping hands and the light in even the darkest times of an other’s life. If you’d like to watch a talk from the conference, I’m putting the link in my bio today. #trust#thoughts #ldsconf #jeanbbingham#prayforlasvegas

David Archuleta ~ Chasing The Unattainable Dream by Kristin Rivers

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, September 26, 2017

credit Pamela Pike

Thank you Kristin for sharing your gift of writing with us.

How many times in life have we struggled to achieve a dream that seems unattainable? How many people told you to give up the dream placed on your heart or forget a goal that you know will change or better your life?

Since I was a teenager, one of my biggest dreams was to see and meet my favorite musician and role model, David Archuleta. I have had my share of people tell me to face the reality of ever meeting him. I’ve been told to give up, get over it and not get hopes up. No matter what dreams we have, the naysayers will come knocking with their comments, personal opinions and “helpful” commentary. Some still don’t realize how much words can hurt as much as actions.

With my dream about Archuleta, I almost gave up last year. A Christmas tour that didn’t have concerts near me…did me in. I was left devastated, heartbroken, angry and beyond tired of the waiting. With having other things going on in my life at the time, that made the blow even harder to swallow. I had to stop talking to some fans because I couldn’t deal with their excitement, leaving fansites I used to go on and ignored videos shared on YouTube and social media. It felt easier to distance myself so I wouldn’t lash out at other people. I was really losing my faith and asking God why I had to wait longer for something I wanted so badly, feeling yet again that my dream was stupid and that I should have given up a long time ago. The words of the past haunted my mind and distracted me from what my heart was trying to say: don’t quit.  There was still a part of me that dared to hope, a stubbornness that said not to quit just yet. Many of us have been told, or heard, about how people give up just when their dream would finally come to pass.

I just wanted to quit, accepting that maybe it will never happen until I was older and living closer to where he would have a concert. At times, we have to put dreams on hold until we’re better off financially, someone encourages us to just do it and stop letting life pass by or our focus is for other people in our lives than our own.

Earlier, I mentioned how words can hurt people. But I think we forget how words can also heal and help, especially when you least expect it. A joke to a friend over email one night In December 2016 created an opportunity that left me crying in bed the following morning and one step closer to that impossible dream finally becoming reality. Yet, the following months were still laced with bitterness, brokenness and hopelessness. I was so focused on what I didn’t have that I forgot what I did have. When you wait so long…you feel really defeated, other times broken and a shadow of your former self and still feel the temptation to walk away and accept things as they are.

This past weekend in Worcester, MA, the dream came true.  Sitting front row with some amazing fans and surrounded by 1,000 people, we waited in anticipation for what the many speakers, besides Archuleta, would share with all of us……and there he was. The moment David Archuleta came out at the beginning of the conference to sing “Glorious”…things got real for me. After seven long years…I was watching this remarkable, God-fearing man perform his heart out and inspire everyone present with his words before my own eyes. There was some laughter, plenty of smiles and moments where I was close to tears. During each break, I would be left speechless at everything: not just David but everyone else who spoke and shared their stories with all of us. Brad Wilcox talking about grace and reading to his grandson, Alissa Parker’s brave story about her late daughter, Emilie, who died at Sandy Hook in 2012 and many, many more.

In case you were wondering “So, did she get to meet him?”

Yes, I did. My lips are sealed at this point though! But, I can say this: he was worth the long wait…and boy does he know how to surprise people. David, if you happen to be reading this I think you know what I’m referring to.

I want people who read this to know your dreams are never impossible or unattainable. Sometimes they just take a little more time than other goals we want to achieve. They require holding on to hope when you feel you just can’t anymore, having faith and trust in whatever higher power you believe in and A TON of patience. If there’s anything David has taught his fans over the years, it’s patience.

Thank you for listening and reading, and don’t give up on those dreams just yet.

David Archuleta ~ The Troubadour Concert Experience, NO WORDS.

Posted by djafan on Sunday, July 23, 2017

 

I can’t believe it’s been a month since the Troubadour concert.  The memories are still so vivid, I can play the videos and it takes me right back to that night.  I’m so glad David’s Aunt Laurie convinced me to leave the balcony and experience the GA energy. The venue told me the balcony seats were on a first come basis, but told me not to worry there wouldn’t be a line for this concert, WHAT?! Well as you can see picture below there was quite the line and they looked a tad surprised.  After leaving the balcony I made it right to the front, I could reach out and touch his feet lol,  I have been to many many David concerts over the last 10 years and nothing had prepared me for the Troubadour.  David was singing the best I’d ever heard him sing and the energy in the entire place was alive, the electricity traveling back and forth from us to him and from him to us was unreal.  The look on his face every time we sang his new songs back to him, even I’m Ready one that he hasn’t released yet, the joy and love oozed out of him. The love fest at the end with all the high fives, the selfies, his reaching out so far almost falling into the crowd on several times.  David used all the arms reaching out to him for support leaning in, it was incredible.

I’ve included the limited videos I took, I just couldn’t stay still!  And a few pictures I took and some are Monica’s, thank you Monica!  Just look at those pictures, watch the videos, not the best quality but you can FEEL it all.  I’m so ready to do this again!!!

Up All Night and David became one on this night.  I had seen all the videos and there was something missing, but wow did he kick it out of the stratosphere, “moving” and all like he calls it.  I’m highlight it here.
