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 :)

my morning cup

"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit- fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name." - John 15:16

Father God,
You are everything that is good, holy, just, mighty, and powerful. Why do I continue to come back to your throne as an idolater?! If I know, believe, and understand that You are the one true God, then I shouldn't continue putting the gods of this world (facebook, internet, boys, college) before You. Even though my wretched heart will fail me daily, YOUR faithfulness will never fail me! It never has. I desire to bear your fruit that is eternal. Blot out my iniquities Lord and continue to provide the tools and opportunities I need to bear Your fruit. Thank you for loving me and using me in my brokenness! Amen.

Thought I'd share my heartbeat this morning. Hope it blesses someone. It's a beautiful Tuesday... take time to rest by the wayside- He's not in a hurry to spend time with you today :)

where can a order a rwandan baby??

I know I am traveling backwards a little but before I got the wisdom teeth out (by the way- still feel like someone took a hole puncher to my mouth ugh) I had just gotten back from Colorado with the fam jam. We were visiting Dalton because he's been working at Camp Kivu all summer as the "manny" for the Braner Family. Yes, he is the only 21 year old guy I know who can handle 5 kids all by himself. He is a stud. The Braner kids consist of Hays, Maggie, Tiki (just adopted from rwanda this year), Dax, and Gabby (adopted from rwanda a couple years ago). They are the cutest, craziest, little kiddos you've ever met. Gabby and I had quite a few photo shoots together (she loved my camera) and she is the most beautiful little girl to take pictures of. Oh and you have GOT to check out Dax's twitter.... he has the funniest one liners of my life... its twitter.com/dax_ism... jordan sparks and taylor swift follow him. These kids are legit! haha. enjoy the pictures :) have a blessed monday!
