i have never really been broken over lost people. but tonight, something hit my heart really hard. i was at my church's christmas production. the skit was mostly about a family. the mother and kids were excited about getting to go caroling and going to their church's christmas eve service. the father was not as excited. he had put off writing a song that he had to complete for his job. his mother was preaching to him to try to get him to realize that the christmas song he had to write had to come from his heart. he finally realized and actually understood what his mother was saying. when his family had realized what amazing change had happened in his life, they were overjoyed. i realized that i have so many people around me every single day that are exactly like that. they don't know what they are missing out on. they hear what they need to do from some people, but they don't process it and understand it. God is calling me to witness to everyone around me. i have become so broken over the lost. a few certain people have been laid on my heart. it really hurts me to think about that, if they died tonight, they would not be in heaven. i am so thankful for the amazing gift God has given me, eternal life in paradise. i want everyone to be able to have that and receive that gift. i pray that He will give me the strength and the words to say to help them have the joy in their life that i do.

in Christ, Kate

It's so scary to release all control, but yet so comforting at the same time...

My Answer is You

There's a world of difference when faith is in a heart
It stands out like sunlight
Life becomes so dark
And when those around me ask me why I dare to dream
Or why I love or why I sing

My answer is You
My answer is You
You're the hope that my heart is holding on to
Skeptics won't understand
It's strange from the world's point of view
My answer is You

They might find it incredible to believe what I can't see
They might think it's foolish
Or even say it's weak
I want to live my life so differently because of faith
If it causes them to question, for me to say

My answer is You
My answer is You
You're the hope that my heart is holding onto
Skeptics won't understand
It's strange from the world's point of view
But my answer is plain and it's simple, Lord
My answer is You!

so...life is really interesting at this point but i'm getting through with God's help. Lately some things have been getting rough and I have been getting farther away from God but really i should do the opposite! I am really trying to put everything into his hands and just release everything to Him. This friday night we have a Good Friday service and my dad is singing in it so I gotta go see him. But this week I have really been trying to focus on what Easter really means. I hope yall have an amazing rest of the week, but we only have one day!!! yeAH!!! lol

Beauty Guide for Girls:

March 25 2006

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit which is so precious to God.This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They trusted God." 

-1 Peter 3:3-5

thank you!

He wants to be best friends with us! Yall it just absolutely blows my mind! i can't even begin to fathom everything about Him! He has always been here! There was never a place where He started! and He will always be here!!!!! there is never an end! if you try to think about it, you just can't! your brain is just to "earthly" to even think about Him!! and everything that happens to you happens for a reason!  when something happens to you that you don't necessarily like or enjoy, just think about how he already has your whoooole life planned out for you! isn't that amazing?! he knows exactly what is going to happen every single aspect of your life down to the smallest detail! He wanted  to have a relationship with you soooooo much that He sent His ONLY son to DIE for you!!!!!!!! it's amazing how much He loves you! He even loves you more than your parents!!!!!

God is EVERYTHING we need!

February 21 2006

All of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward
Worth living for
Still more awesome than I know

All of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

You're my sacrifice of greatest price
Still more awesome than I know
You're my coming King You're everything
Still more awesome than I know

All of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

It's amazing how God is everything we need...

 I started really listening to everyone around me and how they talk and what manner that they talk in. I saw what a positive attitude is like-very pleasant. But i also saw what a negative attitude was like-not to pleasant. Then I really started thinking about everything that I say and how it comes out. Do people really pay attention to the things I say and how I say them? Absolutely! Everything you say is being listened to by everyone around you. That's why you should always have a great example with the things that you say! "But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."--Matthew12:36&37 Usually what people say is a reflection of who they are and what is inside of them. We have to choose our words carefully because the words that you say affect other's opinions of you. All the things that we say need to be glorifying God. "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord my Rock and my Salvation."--Psalm 19:14 All the negative things that we say are worthless. They only cause us trouble. "Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful."--2 Timothy 2:23&24 All of this said, your words and your speech leave an example. Therefore, your speech should be pure and encouraging. "From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things as surely as the work of his hands rewards him."--Proverbs 12:14 Challenge: try to go a whole day without saying anything negative.

Be Blessed

one of the best friends a girl could ever ask for....amazing!
"I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints."    --Philemon 1:4-7

....so i had an AMAZING weekend with a group of amazing girls who are so fun and are so strong in their faith. They really encouraged me.

bethany!!--the most amazing leader EVER!!


mrs. swanson


aarrooo! lol--b.hobs

b.hobs leading a session


me and erica with her super tan face! lol

our whole house in our camo

me and kathlyn

me, lindsey, and b.hobs

so...this weekend, our theme verse was 1 Timothy 4:12-"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity." It was talking about how to be a tupos(which is the greek word for example) for everyone in everything we do. But the one thing that bethany(our leader) really stressed was how we live to glorify God. She kept saying that over and over and it didn't really hit home with me until the last night. I realized that i wasn't doing that! Every single thing that i do down to the smallest things were being looked at by everyone around me. It really occured to be that I needed to be a greater example for God and His love. Worship was amazing! I absolutey knew God was talking to me. I could just feel Him right there with me. To wrap everything up in one word...undescribable.

be blessed,  kate

keep singing...

February 03 2006

Another rainy day/ I can't recall having sunshine on my face/ All I feel is pain/ All I wanna do is walk out of this place/ But when I am stuck, I can't move/ When I don't know what I should do/ When I wonder if I'll ever make it through// But I gotta keep singing/ I gotta keep praising Your name/ You're the one that's keeping my heart beating/ I gotta keep singing/ I gotta keep praising Your name/ That's the only way that I'll find healing/ Can I climb up in Your lap/ I don't wanna leave/ Jesus sing over me/ I gotta keep singing// Oh You're EVERYTHING I NEED/ And I gotta keep singing

amazing song my mercyme...Keep Singing
