|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

Its Been A While
For those of you who have been regular visitors to our website, you know
its been a while since we've done an update... a year actually! 2014 has
been a year of change and transition for us and rather than to try a
chronological update, we'll just share the highlights in photos and
commentary. Our intent is to not neglect this website in the upcoming year
so hopefully you will be seeing more frequent updates. And of course, for
the "up to the minute" news, feel free to visit us on Facebook. And with
that said, here is 2014 in review!
Beckie & Andrew
Beckie continues to work for the home care agency Companion Care
where she provides for the basic needs of several local clients.
Additionally, from October through early December she has been on
special assignment assisting her mother in California.
Meanwhile, Andrew has concluded his first hear in his new healthcare
The census at the house remains unchanged from last year with four
adults (Beckie & Andrew, Debbie Hamilton, Terry Butters and two
subservient quadrupeds (Chico & Molly).
Becks mom is recovering from some recent health issues with assistance
from Beck. Meanwhile, Andrew's mom is receiving treatment in a skilled
nursing environment with the hope of her returning to her assisted living
Family & Friends
We have been able to connect multiple times with Beck's brother Andy and
his wife Wendy in Morro Bay. We've also gotten to spend time with Mike
and Mary both at their house in Condon and during a short trip where they
got to stay with us here in Washington. On that trip, Mike and Andrew
surprised each other with matching facial hair styles!
New friends include the Martin family, whose soon Jay received driving
lessons from Andrew over the summer and who obtained his driver's
license in early fall. Jay's aunt Veronica also showed nerves of steel during
a short motorcycle ride with Andrew!
Ty & Lexi
In addition to letting Andrew experiment on Jay as a driving instructor, the
Martins have also graciously allowed Andrew to hang out at their house
during Beck's absence and let him be honorary uncle/grandpa to their
grandchildren Ty and Lexi. They have also extended an invitation for him
to share Thanksgiving with them this year! Thank you Martin family!
Christmas plans are indefinite but the day’s celebration will likely be at the
Canyon Park Denny’s.
Andrew had a great second season of kayaking, paddling in locals
including Deception Pass, Lake Keechelus and Morro Bay.
Morro Bay was our destination three times this year. It has become our
destination of choice for relaxation and resetting ourselves after seasons
of work and travel. We hope to visit it again more than once in 2015... and
especially, Andrew intends to do business again with Kayak Horizons
down on the Embarcadero!
Other travels took Andrew to a getaway in Leavenworth, to a visit to his
old homestead, to the Sundial Bridge and Bethel Church in Redding, and
to his dad's long lost grave site. More locally, his travels took him to the
sidewalk during an early morning run, giving him a nice little abrasion!
And like every other child in the world, he kept the scab until it fell off
Things To Come In 2015
Beckie and Andrew have kept close to the west coast the last several years
and that trend will probably continue until they retire. That means our
good friends in Indiana and Tennessee won't be on our travel agenda for a
while but they continue to be in our hearts and prayers and we look
forward to the time we will all be able to touch bases again!
