- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo
- family unity, harmony, love, strength, joy, happiness
- anything else you feel God puts on your heart

Radiation: upper back

MMy appointment is for 3:00 and I am nervous.  Anxious maybe?   So tired and needing a map.  Managed pain with pillows and positioning today, thanks to the nurses who would lift and maneuver these cranky leg and hips.  But was awake for most of this day with my husband by my side.  Love that. 

Get thee behind me, Satan, you shall not prevail, because Jesus never fails.

Lord, I receive your peace. Thank you.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
—John 16:33


  1. Praying for you. God's got this!

  2. My heart continues to be prompted to pray for your inner peace, courage and strength. May God continue to hold your family in a real personal way!

  3. Prayers for you and your family!

  4. Dear Kristen, I am so humbled by you letting us into your journey. I am forever changed by you. I saw the sun differently today and watched geese fly by me with great interest. I really looked at the front display at Costco and even ate a hotdog there with my family (hate eating there....) You have taught through your words that no one is promised tomorrow but we can always count on our faith in God and one another........I have learned more from you then I ever did in church. I need to thank you even though we never met and I feel that its not appropriate at this time to come into your life. Please know that I am praying for you all the time.I work in health care and my favourite picture of you is the one in the lift with you giving the peace sign with both hands. That speaks volumes to me.....That no matter what life gives us, we have PEACE !!!!! Peace to you my friend........Shelley
