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 :)

the big ONE NINE

Let me begin by apologizing for being the worst blogger EVER lately! Can't believe how long it's been since my last post! I am ashamed! School has been nuts! BLEH! But I am NOT gonna talk about school right now because... GUESS WHAT..... its ma birfday! hip hip hooray! The big ONE NINE baby! What a crazy nineteen years it's been... but really! This past year has made me realize that not everyday is guaranteed. You hear that everyday is a blessing... but it truly is. We are never entitled to tomorrow. I am so so blessed to have a nineteenth birthday! I really do love those American Cancer Society commercials about celebrating more birthdays! mmm gets me every time! haha! Ok ok enough with the sappy stuff... wanna hear what I got for my birthday?????
My mom came down to Fayetteville on a whim to hang out with me on my birthday which was SUCH a blast. We had a spa day together and got to get a little spoiled and pampered! It was HEAVEN!!!! I went home last weekend to celebrate my birthday with my family and got a bunch of fall clothes! Then when my mom came up she brought me probably one of the best birthday presents I've ever gotten!!! Oh my word... STILL slightly freaking out about it. How do I explain this??.... Well at the beginning of December we have our winter formal called Kappa Kissmas and my present is that my parents are flying "the boy" down to Arkansas for the formal! I know I know.... who's "the boy"??? I think I wanna keep it TBA for right now! I don't know why.... partly because that is a WHOLE other blog post and also because I get awkward and flustered explaining it (but you will hear about it soon... lets say november 11ish). Can't believe I'm putting this on my blog! oh my word MOVING ON!!!!! So yeah a pretty darn good birthday! I'm trying not to think about being in my twenties next year because that totally freaks me out! EEK!
