TWO VIDEO CLIPS- swipe left for the second clip ** Fingerspelling Receptivity Practice: cookie ingredients 🍪🍪🍪🍪 If you’re having a hard time with this FS receptivity practice then try to catch only the first 3 letters and then fill in the blank. 🙃
** English subtitles in the second video clip ** I usually only have one meeting every two weeks but you know how it usually is at the end of the year... really busy!! 🙃 ___ Created two sentences using two of the signs I showed yesterday- month and temperature... I wanted to show how the signs look really similar when signed at a normal speed in sentences and also to show it is NOT necessary to t
One of you asked what’s the difference between ‘month’ and ‘temperature’ - so here’s a video showing the difference :) plus two other similar signs (well, rent and monthly are basically the same, rent tends to be quicker and smaller). Temperature- the dominant index finger represents the change in the thermometer throughout the day / week. ** 1) Month - 2) Temperature - 3) Rent - 4) Monthly **
Congrats to my big sis, Kim, on her new PR (Personal Record)!!! So so SO proud of her for not giving up!!! 17 min PR!!!! And like 27 min faster than her last marathon 22 months ago!! What did she do differently? Pretty much everything!!! Because you gotta do something different if you want to get different results!! ;-) Kim- I knew you could do it!! So proud of you for not giving up!!! Now you’re
This is my big sis, Kim, she’s running a full marathon tomorrow (California International Marathon in Sacramento) and this will be her first marathon in almost two years (22 months). She went through some health issues and disappointments in the last few years but she never gave up... she kept pushing through and now she’s ready to run a full marathon again tomorrow and I’m SO proud of her!!
Months are fingerspelled out using the first three letters if they are longer than 5 letters with the exception of September... Sept not Sep. — Jan - Feb - March - April - May - June - July - Aug - Sept - Oct - Nov - Dec — I created a slower version of this video on YouTube for those of you who would like to play the video in slow motion.

Yes, it’s hard to see the E’s in the last video but remember what I’ve always said? CONTEXT IS KEY!! 😄 Today’s the first day of D__C!!! Happy D__C!! 😄
Today’s the first day of December!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Happy December!!! 😄
😄 Here’s the story… yesterday, on the first flight (@Delta) back home, the flight attendant was passing out drinks and snacks row by row and Micah asked me what I wanted… water and “graham cookies” (biscoff cookies) as usual. And then when Micah asked for “cookies”, she told us that she didn’t have any, I made a dramatic sad face 🙁 and then she signed, “sorry”… my frown turned into a big smile BEC
Here’s another fingerspelling receptivity practice bc sometimes you do have to catch all the letters in case you're not familiar with what is being fingerspelled... like a city in Kentucky for example. 🙃 I don’t really have a tip other than to keep practicing reading fingerspelling!! 🙃 ** If you have a tip that helps you, feel free to share in the comment section for others to try!! :) ** Let me k
Happy Thanksgiving!! 💛
Signs for Thanksgiving 🍂
In Kentucky visiting Micah’s family for Thanksgiving. :) I remember the first time Micah told me the name of the place where he grew up- Pleasureville... I was like, ha, really? Pleasureville? 😄 When he first brought me home years ago, I could see right away why this place was called Pleasureville... it’s so quiet and peaceful here... it’s always a pleasure visiting here. :)
“Hi!! I just got here in ____________.” This might be a bit too fast for some but remember, the most important letters to catch are usually the first 2-3 letters (and then the last 2-3 letters if it’s a long word)... so try to catch the first 3 letters and then fill in the blank. Let me know if you got it!! :) ** It has been a while since I’ve done a fingerspelling receptivity practice video... I
Sign for ‘magazine’. :)
Thank you all sooo much for the words of encouragement!!! Means so so SO much to me!! 💛 I will not give up. I’ll keep pushing through!! Thanks so much again!! . Here’s a video showing how to sign “picture”- two different versions. See the vision board? I’ll be finishing it tomorrow. :)
Your support and encouragement in the last week meant so so so SO much to me that I wanted to open up a bit more and share a part of why I lost motivation. When I first launched Signed With Heart three years ago, I was scared, like really scared. It was just so scary to put myself out there… to be honest, it still is. I’ve been living in fear and it was starting to take a toll on me that I started
So so so SO sweet of Stephanie (@rootedlovemomma) to make this video for me in response to my video last night!!! Seriously, you all are sooo sweet!!! Your words of encouragement means SO much to me!! Thank you, thank you!!!! 💛
😬 So, it has been about a month since I’ve been struggling with motivation... I realized I had to do something different because I was still having trouble getting back on track 🙈 so I thought of making a vision board... I’ve been meaning to make one for years- so I figured now’s a good time!! ;-) My goal is to have the vision board finished by Sunday evening. Once I finish, I will post a video sh
I’m not a big fan of Halloween 👻 but I’m reposting this video for those who would like to learn some Halloween signs. 😜 Full video on YouTube, type in “ASL THAT HALLOWEEN” :)
Here’s a video showing the signs “enter” and “born” on the same level (the main difference is that “enter” is signed further from the body) and a few sentences to show you that context is really key. 🙃 Go on _____, it’s fine. I was ______ on January 30, 1989. I was ______ and raised here in San Diego. I just saw her _________ the restaurant.
Here’s a video for those who asked what’s the difference between ‘enter’ and ‘born’. :) The main difference between the signs is the location of the sign, ‘born’ is usually signed close to the stomach / body while ‘enter’ is usually signed higher up and further away from the body... but really, context is key, because ‘born’ is sometimes signed as high as ‘enter’ (because it takes a little effort
Here’s a video showing the difference between “in” and “enter”. :) ** In- flat letter O and letter C handshape. Enter- closed 5 handshapes. ** And really, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support. Your words of encouragement and kindness means so much to me!!
This is embarrassing but last two weeks has been tough for me. Yesterday, I realized that I’ve lost motivation (in general) 🙈 like I’ve been struggling to get back on track for two weeks now. 🙈 I was talking with my online friend Lucia (@drawwithrydi - met her through an online program I signed up for last year) about it yesterday and then she surprised me with this video saying, “I believe in you
How to sign: makeup 💄👄 ** Lipstick from @hudabeauty. Foundation from @makeupforeverofficial.
So excited!! 😍 I've been trying to get a @hudabeauty palette for MONTHSSSS!!! The first palette earlier this year was completely sold out for months. It was not until a couple of days before the release of the new palette that I found out about it and I didn't think I would be able to get it because I wasn't able to get the first one so I figured it would be sold out again. Two days later, @hudabe
After asking if they need help- in case they say they don’t need help, you could say, “let me know if you need anything” :)
HOW TO SIGN: Do you need help? ** Need: letter X handshape, 2x.
Here's a video showing the difference between 'help' and 'amen' for those who asked. // Help: the non-dominant hand lifts the thumbs up. | Amen: the thumbs up goes down to the palm // There's another sign for 'help'... thumbs up tapped on the palm twice (which is like signing 'amen' twice. 🙃 Remember, context is key.).
Earlier this week, two of you asked how to sign 'amen' so here's a video showing the sign for 'amen'. :) There are a few other variations- the one shown in the video is the one I use. 👍🏼✋🏼
Sign for 'heartbreaking' ** I honestly don't know what to post tonight other than that it's heartbreaking. 😔 I can't imagine the pain all the families are feeling right now, my heart aches for them. 😔 Please keep them in your prayers. ❤️
Sign for "sad" 😕 Yesterday, the news showed pictures of some of the victims... it was surreal to see them smiling and enjoying life unaware of what came next. It's so sad. Praying for all the families affected by this tragedy. 😔Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Love your family well. Keep the families & victims in your prayers as they begin the long journey to healing after this tragedy. ❤️
Sign for "pray" -- showing two different versions ** The second sign shows 'pray' in a circular motion, backward. The second sign shows that you're pray*ing* or you're praying (or prayed) with a heavy heart. ** So so so SO sad 😔 & I am praying for all the families affected & all of the injured victims to have a quick recovery. 😔 #prayforlasvegas
At the end of the video, I was thinking / saying “month” but I signed “goal”. 😛 Sooo, I started using a habit tracker last month… basically, the goal is to mark X everyday with the goal of not breaking the chain. My goals for September were to go to bed by 10pm, wake up without snoozing, run 3x a week, to not use social media until after 5:30pm and to post on Instagram everyday. I’ve been running
It's October now?! 😳 Time flies by so fast!! I know I say this all the time but seriously, is it just me or did this year really fly by soooo much faster than last year?! 😳
After asking if they are deaf, you could say hi 👋🏼 and introduce yourself, and just say you're learning sign :) Most Deaf people don’t mind at all. No need to show off your sign repertoire haha - but just use the signs you do know to have a simple convo! Just basically say hi, and that you saw them and wanted to say hi. And see what happens next. :) I usually ask people how they learn sign languag
Deaf Culture 411 - If you see a deaf person (or think you see one), ask them if they are deaf just to make sure. It’s easy to mistake their not talking / replying for being deaf, but if they are asking for paper and pen, then it's most likely they are deaf. BUT they could be mute and just not know sign. Also, not all people wearing hearing aids and cochlear implants know sign language so that's wh
Deaf Culture 411- hand waving is used to get someone's attention (it's kinda like saying "hey" or to start talking to get attention) but if you see a deaf person and you want to say hi- walk up to them and if they don't see you / turn to you / look up to you, then I would suggest doing a quick wave (short arm) to get their attention... not wave your arms from the distance, it's like yelling from
**SWIPE, SWIPE, SWIPE** 😶 *lips folded inward* So, last week was International Week of the Deaf and I didn't post anything on here. 😬 But I did post on @deafbiblesociety (the non-profit organization I work with)! 🙃 And THIS week, we celebrate Deaf Awareness Week. Usually, 'International Week of the Deaf' and 'Deaf Awareness Week' are celebrated during the same week-the LAST FULL WEEK of September
In case you didn't see last night's post, I posted a new YouTube video yesterday- 25 Basic ASL Signs For Beginners **Part 3** (link on profile @signedwithheart). The video is 13 min long- lots of slow motions and side views. Signs shown in the video: people, person, friend, family, say, tell, talk, see you later, mean (as in "what does this mean?"), mean (as in unkind), hungry, food, and a few sen
