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 :)

off to K2

I know I have not been faithful to the blog lately so I apologize. I am about to leave for Kanakuk Kamps to volunteer at K2! I know I know... my last post was just about getting back from kamp but now I'm going back! If I could only explain my love for kamp... it is easily my favorite place in the whole wide world. Whenever I go through the front gates, my heart starts racing with excitement and then I feel like I'm gonna be sick like I'm about to give a speech! haha! Maybe I just sound nutty but Kamp has THAT big of a place in my heart... It's like th master bathroom of my heart... my sanctuary! My bff from kamp, Laura Talton, came in town a couple days early before we drive down to kamp together. Laura is from Alabama and prolly best way to describe her is Charlotte LaBouff from Disney's The Princess and the frog (don't worry I provided a picture to jog your memory)! She is the most darling southern belle you'll ever meet. We will be gone for 2 weeks and I dont know if I'll be able to post while I'm there so this might be a "see ya soon" kinda post. But one thing that would absolutely make my day would be if I got letters from yall! I can't describe what a blessing it is to get mail and care packages (just a heads up- you usually wanna send it early bc mail is slow). my address is...

Hope to hear from you! Can't wait to tell you all about it when I get back! Well it's 1:05 and I was supposed to leave 5 minutes ago! O boy! Be praying for safe travel! ciao
