About Me

Overland Park, Kansas
My name is Kate, I'm 19 years old, and on March 4th 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was told I had to get my left kidney removed- praise the Lord I have two! A month later they took out my kidney and told me the tumor was benign! I worship a God of miracles! I am a desperately dependent follower of Christ, who feeds on God's Word like manna! I know the healing hand of God and I believe He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me! I started this blog to communicate continued prayer requests, keep people up to date on my health and daily life, and most importantly share how Christ's love is transforming my heart everyday! Thank you for all your support! God Bless! PS I love to know who is reading the blog so comments are much encouraged and loved :)

I am so excited! One of my graduation gifts is a mother/daughter trip to florida with my mom, meg, and I and THEN all my best friends and their moms too! There's 12 of us. That is a LOT of estrogen, people! Here's the possible problem though- I looked up the weather and it is supposed to be thunderstorms ALL week! O my word! I know I have made myself notorious for silly prayer requests but He says to make your prayer requests known... so gosh darnet I'm MAKIN EM KNOWN! haha! Please be praying that it is sunny and beautiful weather. I've been looking forward to this trip since November and now even more since this looong spring. Somedays all I could think of while I was in the hospital bed was laying out on a beach in Florida! I am leaving EARLY tomorrow morning and then getting back next friday! Actually half of the girls are already half way there on a plane as we speak! Be praying for safe travels :) ciao

Well folks... its over. High school is no more. finished. gone. forever. WHAT!?! I can't believe that it's over! It really does fly by. This last week has been craziness because of my open house and graduation all in the same weekend so I haven't been able to blog lately but I'm back on the horse again! Yeehaw! Is that how the saying goes? Anyway, I guess I've hit quite the mile marker! This week has really been emotionally spending. I think it's because this milestone is so much sweeter knowing that I was never guaranteed I was going to make it there. Okay so maybe that sounds morbid but thats how I see it! God is so unbelievably good to me. We wake up almost every morning acting like we were entitled to this day but really it is a gift. It's really hard to live with that mindset sometimes but it is such an important principle... to live with a heart of thanksgiving. I am so thankful for all the amazing high school memories that I have, I'm thankful for the incredible fellowship I have, for the opportunity to have a high school education, for supportive parents, for the ability to graduate after missing a whole quarter of school... there is so much to lift up in thanks to Him. When you have a heart of thanksgiving towards your Master, you gain a clearer view of His glory.
