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 :)

How've ya been old friend?

Well i havn't posted anything in FOREVER! What is the deal?!!? Get your act together kate! Thought I would catch everyone up on my "summer of george" (please don't tell me I'm the only one that still watches seinfeld). This weekend I got back from volunteering in the K1 kitchen. What a blast!!! My highlight of the trip was definetly getting to know Kirby Merrill, a 24 year old gal with Down's Syndrome. We ended up having more in common than I thought... we both love quick trip hot dogs, Lady Antebellum and Faith Hill, we both have to make our beds right before we get in, our brothers are rooming together at KU next year and the list goes on. She has such a heart for the Lord and His word.... I would always find her with a gazillion highlighters and her open bible. I admire the way she so eagerly dives into the word and strive for that same eagerness. love ya kirbs :)
In other news.... I'm working on Rush stuff right now and getting all my recs ready! ATTENTION ALL SORORITY BABES: if you were a Pi Beta Phi, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Zeta Tau Alpha, or Chi Omega then God Bless your soul because i would LOVE to send you my resume and get a rec from you!!! I would be eternally grateful :) I'm sweatin over here trying to get as many recs as I can muster up!
What else is new?.... hmmm.... oh I'm nannying for a family this week so if anyone has suggestions of fun places i could take the kiddos or activities we could do, LEMME KNOW! To conclude I have a little prayer request- I'm having really sharp pains in my incision area that are abnormal for me so be praying we can figure out whats goin on or that it will go away! Thanks for tunin' in :) Have a fantastic Thursday!
