#SpotlightSunday: Dea & Doug Mygrant

Meet Doug and Dea Mygrant. They are crafty, hospitable and promotors of hope. This year they are lending their talents to nadege by restoring this old piece of barn wood into a beautiful farm house table. Don't miss your chance to bid on the finished product at the Restored Gala on 9/23. Until then, scroll down to learn more about this amazing couple and support their campaign here.


1. In three words describe yourself.

The three words to describe Doug are creative, jokester and taskmaster. The 3 words to describe Dea are encouraging, outgoing, and animal lover (especially dogs).

2. What does hope mean to you?

Hope to us means bringing joy into the world by being kind to people and letting them know you care.  

3. What has caused you to help restore hope in Haiti?

It is a small way to help for those who so desperately need our help, and we love to restore old pieces or make pieces into something new and fun.

4. Our theme for the Gala is Isaiah 61:3. How have you witnessed “beauty coming from ashes” in your own life or the lives of others?

We witness beauty coming from the ashes every day in our lives because we mess up every day and we can ask for Gods grace in our lives and share it with others. What a beautiful truth that is!

5. What is your hidden talent?

Doug's hidden talent is that he has installed two in-ground pools in our homes all by himself and loves doing multiple projects around the house. Dea's hidden talent is that she loves painting furniture and making it look completely different without going out and buying new pieces.
