|A Little About Us
Welcome to the McNiece family website. The McNieces have been married for over 35 years and in
2012, purchased a home with the intent of providing hospitality, and a community living environment.
They previously ran the Christian Community Living Center in Lynnwood. For 15 years the CCLC
was a community home opened to those in need of emergency housing. People stayed for anywhere
from weeks to years. Over time the house specialty became single moms and woman in stressed
marriages, though there were single dads and whole families who joined the CCLC Family over the
years. As time went by it became evident that some level of counseling training would be beneficial to
help meet the needs of the residents. In the late 1990's, Andrew & Beckie attended the Basic Prayer
Counseling Training course offered by Elijah House. Afterward they had an opportunity to teacher
assist in a second basic school, and after that concluded they maintained a full counseling schedule
for the next year. Since then they have provided lay-counseling services on an as needed basis for
those referred by word of mouth.
Other involvements include Andrew and Becks joint development of curriculum and leading the
Sunday morning Junior High School program at Lynnwood Neighborhood Church for 10 years;
Beck's involvement in Children's Ministry, Administrative and Office Support, Intercessory Prayer
and the development of E-Pray email prayer chain ministries at Family Life Center and Living Hope
over 15 and 6 years respectively. From 2004-2007, Beck and Andrew led Power Alley, a home
fellowship group that stressed Fellowship, Worship, The Word, Prayer and Outreach. Over the years,
Andrew has participated in four Worship Teams in various support roles, and also occasionally
leading worship. Andrew has also authored over 80 songs.
Beck is currently a home health care provider for Companion Care. Andrew has a background in
Law Enforcement and is very happily employed. Andrew is also a Ham Radio Operator at
Technician's level with the call sign K7AXZ.
We currently live at:
19404 4th Dr. SE

A Week In Oregon
Beck has spent a little over a week in Oregon assisting her mom as she
transitions out of rehab and back into her retirement community home in
Hillsboro. Her time was extended a few days because of car trouble.
How Many Cars Can We Kill In Three Months??
When my trusty Ford Escape developed oil pressure issued and the
mechanic deemed a vehicle with over 220000 miles on it a poor investment
for repair, I bit the bullet, went into debt, and bought another car (a Mini
Cooper). A month later Beck’s Honda CR-V developed transmission issues.
It also had over 220000 miles on it and I decided not to even bother trying
to get it fixed. Going into further debt we purchasing an Audi to replace it.
Then a couple of weeks later the Mini Cooper developed… can you believe
this… oil pressure problems! Nothing that couldn’t be repaired of course,
all that was needed was a little more debt. And then a couple of weeks
after that, the Audi developed some issues requiring shop time… and
more debt. Two days after getting it out of the shop, Beck took an
emergency trip to Oregon to help out with her mom, where she was
stranded when… you guessed it… the transmission went out!
I drove down to rescue her, letting Beck drive the Mini home while I drove
the Audi. It was drivable but took a little extra skill to get moving from a
Once home we pondered our options and decided the only possible way
to afford yet another vehicle was to find something that got insanely good
gas mileage. That way we could offset a car payment out of our gas budget.
We headed over to Magic Toyota to see if a new car was even possible for
us and encountered Ziad, part of the sales staff there. He quickly
confirmed we were qualified to obtain a new vehicle so the rest was a
matter of hammering out the details.
Half jokingly I commented that it would be nice if we could make a deal on
two new cars. I didn’t seriously think a deal like that would be possible but
Ziad was able to make it happen.
Giving both the Audi and the Mini in trade, we drove out with two brand
new Toyota Prius’s! We were so happy with the experience that we intend
to do it again in about three years… and we hope Ziad is still there to help
Back To Oregon!
Beck received word that her mother has fallen again, this time resulting in
a broken pelvis. Thankfully she will have reliable transportation on this trip
(thank you again Ziad).
We don’t know how long she will be down this time or what the plan will
be for her mom’s long term care. Beck will be exploring those options
once she arrives.
During Beck’s absence I’ve been assimilated into the family of our good
friends, the Martins. There I’ve provided the services of shopping cart
muscle (they can pack a shopping cart to over 300 pounds), taste tester
(consuming pigs feet among other delicacies) and jungle gym (for use by
Ty and Lexy). I LOVE it!!!!
Riding Season Is Around The Corner!
With this year's riding season around the corner I've got the bike cleaned
and polished. I'm just awaiting time to do the oil change and seasonal
service, and my motor will be running as I head out on the highway!!
