If you’re on Facebook or received my personal email message, you have read of my health update this past week. If not, word on the street is…my PET scan was clear! The doctors have declared that the cancer is in remission. I am claiming God’s healing grace and offering Him my humble and thankful praise.
The next step is to continue appointments every two months with my ENT along with a six month check-up with the oncologist.
God is incredibly good—isn’t He?
On another note, I would appreciate your prayers for a dear friend of mine as she continues her journey in battling the ugly cancer beast. She is traveling to
to consult with doctors regarding a new cancer treatment program. Please join
me in praying God’s sovereign hand in her situation as they meet with the
specialists on Tuesday. Kansas City

Thank you, praying friends.
When I ended my chemotherapy and radiation treatments last November, I wondered, What’s next, God? Since then, with thanksgiving and awe of His grace toward me, I began to pray, “Lord, thank you for carrying me through the most difficult journey I have ever experienced. When I wanted to give up—in every instance, Your mercy was greater. Every single time. So God, I surrender. Whatever You want from me, I’ll do.”
Each time I prayed that prayer, I meant it. And you know what God did? He answered.
Several weeks ago, I was asked to pray about sharing a small portion of my testimony in church. I've mentioned in previous posts of how speaking in front of crowds was definitely out of my comfort zone. But as I remembered my prayer of submission, I realized, this was one of the What’s next, God? opportunities. So last Sunday, I did it—I shared. Even though speaking in front of a large crowd was a little daunting, I realized once again, this wasn’t about me. It was an opportunity to share about a relationship—a God relationship.
Oh my. God is teaching me so much during this crazy journey of mine. And for some reason, that only my heavenly Father knows, I’m still here. But one thing is for certain, through every trial and victory I continue to experience God more and more.
Because you see, it’s all about the relationship.
