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 :)

end of the year! PTL

Oh my word I can't believe I'm moving home on Saturday!! My last final is in the morning and then I'm driving back with my dad! What a crazy school year it has been! It's been amazing and hard and eye-opening and long and just a crazy mixture of experiences. I have learned so much this year about myself, life, and God. I am so thankful for this year but I definitely wouldn't do it again. I am exhausted. I am leaving my freshman year with so many wonderful memories and friendships but I am ready to move on to summer. Every end of the school year I have been so excited and ready for summer but this is the first year that I feel DESPERATE for summer. I mean last year, summer came early for me... I was out of school at spring break when I was diagnosed. It was no vacation but I wasn't being pressed with studying or essays or STUDIO! I will be home for about two weeks and then I will be working at Kanakuk Kamps for 2 months! AHHH I am so pumped. It is definitely not the most "relaxing" way to spend your summer but Kamp is a haven for me. I am so ready to share Jesus with high school girls and invest in their summers. I have been praying all year for my kampers and I am getting so anxious now that it is just around the corner. Be praying for me and my kampers this summer.... Pray for energy, strength, wisdom, discernment, love, and transformed hearts for Jesus. Over my 2-4's I will post prayer requests and updates on what is going on in the Kamp bubble. BLAH but I keep remembering that I still have a final I need to ace on Saturday so I can't get too sucked into thinking about kamp right now. Otherwise I will risk the temptation of blowing off this test.... no maam... not an option!! Well praise Jesus for Dead Day tomorrow! Have a lovely Friday :) I'm praying for some sunshine!
