Foundation of Love

Before my dream life disappeared… Before my miscarriages… Before finding an unknown mass in my brain… Before surgeries… Before chemo… Before radiation… Before I was aware of the lies that limited who I was… God loved me (Romans 5:8).  I belonged in His family.  In 2009, I was excited.  I was set up for my […]

Peace though Prayer

Insurance… it is just one of those things that even the word “Insurance” brings a bunch of different emotions.  I understand that I should be grateful for insurance.  After 7 years of fighting a brain tumor, we still have money. We didn’t have to use all of our money to pay medical expenses.  On the […]

Pink Elephant

Pink elephants… I have been thinking about pink elephants.  Do you think about pink elephants? Their trunks are cute, and their feet are huge.  Sometimes, they have beady eyes and big eyelashes. Oh! You don’t think about pink elephants.  I probably wouldn’t either if there wasn’t a challenge not to think about pink elephants.  You […]

The Struggle is NOT Over

I became aware of a battle for my life in 2011 when a seizure revealed a mass in my brain.  And over the last 7 years, I have been reminded to fight and fight hard through surgeries, chemo, and radiation.  Even through I have broken a surgery pattern (surgery in 2012, 2014, 2016, and no […]

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Not Alone

Last year, she hated the Fourth of July.  When the fireworks started, we went inside.  This year, she enjoyed the lights and tolerated the noises while we were outside.  But when we came inside, she didn’t like it.  I (Kendra) convinced her to lay down in her bed, but she wasn’t ready for me to […]

Rescue Mission – Memorial Day

You are in a war right now. If you, like me, designate yourself as Christian, then the enemy has you in his sights. He knows your weak points, he knows your fortifications, and he’s patient. He knows the right time to strike. He also knows who your leader is, but he wants you to be […]

Personal Reflections for Easter

Sometimes I (Amy) forget that Jesus love and died for: the politician I don’t like the coworker I can’t stand the relative I don’t get along with the idiot in traffic I nearly hit that annoying person at church that person from my past that I can’t forgive that bully at school that person on […]
