Thanks for Carrying my Burden

Thanks to all who prayed for me (Kendra).  I am so grateful for the Global church and how they “carry my burdens” to God’s throne room. I was reminded of Galatians 6:2,4-5: 2 Carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ…. 4 Let … Continue reading

Please Pray

This week, my first MRI after radiation is scheduled to see what the radiation was able to accomplish.  I am terrified, because of what I think God wants to do after the MRI. This week, I was revealing some of my hopes and fears.  I was told, “You are strong.” … Continue reading

Best Worst Year Ever

  This week we want give you thoughts about 2017 from Amy and Kendra. Pictured is a fresh, blank journal I (Amy) just found to celebrate the New Year. It’s interesting that last year’s journal said, “Everything Starts With A Dream,” on the front cover. I’m ready for a new … Continue reading

My Christmas Prayer

Five years ago this month, I (Kendra) started praying for healing.  It was while we were at my in-laws to celebrate Christmas that I had my first seizure, which led to a scan that found my tumor. Although I was scared, I was convinced that my God would heal me. … Continue reading

When I can’t…

I (Kendra) had brain surgery in August.  Compared to the other two brain surgeries, my recovery was awesome.  I did have a hard time using some words, but it was minimal.  I praised God for His protection and my recovery. But when I stopped taking steroids, I began to realize … Continue reading

Worthless

Sin whispers, “I am easier.” Satan whispers, “No one can obey all of God’s rules.” Sin says, “Why try to do right?  You can’t be perfect. Satan says, “You failed.” Sin lies, “You will always be a failure and worthless.” Satan lies, “You can’t be used by God.” And all … Continue reading

My Reward won’t be Heaven

It is that time of the year for Judgement Houses.  Churches or other groups come together to create a walk-through gospel presentation that is intended to compete with a haunted house.  Although different groups use a different script, every Judgement House that I have seen follows the same flow.  First, … Continue reading

Feeling Loved

Shortly after my (Kendra’s) third brain surgery, some people were discussing my amazing recovery.  Someone asked, “What is your prognosis?” Because I have dealt with this four (almost five years), I bluntly said, “Unless God does the unexplained, I am going to die.” My friend broke down in tears. And … Continue reading

The Key to Making Good Decisions

“You are good enough.” “You are valuable.” “You are loved.” “God owns the cattle on thousand hill-tops; resources don’t limit Him” (Ps. 50:10) “Trust God rather than money.” “If you hold your money in a fist, God can’t give you more.  Open your fist, and trust God to provide.” These … Continue reading
