Confusion….

As a part of my Bible college education, I had to write lesson plans.  In one class, it was required to write a lesson nearly every week, and evaluate other classmates’ lessons.  One of the lessons I wrote was on the Fruit of Spirit: Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, […]

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 […]

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 it startled me. I didn’t […]
