A Prayer Request for our Family

by | May 24, 2018 | Uncategorized | 34 comments

We’re facing a family challenge, and I’d love to have your prayers, and for you to know why I might not be around the blog as much as I had hoped to be. But then again maybe I will, I just don’t know.

Please click here to read the explanation.

And thank you for all your love and support!

    My family will be praying for your husband and family in our daily prayers. May God bless you all and bring your husband into full healing.

    Praying for Jim and for all of you. I am humbled by his response to all of this.

  4. LAinAZ

    My father had clear cell melanoma, the drugs that have come out in just the last 3 years since his diagnosis are amazing.Since my sister also had a stage 1 melanoma removed my dermatologist has told its not if but when for me, so thank you to your husband for participating in a drug trial that will benefit so many more. You will all be in my prayers.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. Many prayers for strength and courage for his fight. Praying also for an abundance of grace to carry your family.

  8. Annie

    May the God of eternal hope fill your hearts with unspeakable peace. Keeping you and your family in my prayers!

  9. Sanasi

    When I saw people asking for prayers for a father of nine with melanoma I kind of thought maybe it was your husband – praying for your family and so encouraged by your family's faithfulness and hope. <3

  10. Joanne

    Blessed Solanus Casey….this is the miracle we need. Please bless this wonderful family man with healing and strength if it be the will of God. Through the intercession of our beautiful lady, MARY, we ask for you to intercede and provide the miracle needed. Amen

  11. Renee

    Adding this to my current intention to Blessed Alvaro!

  12. Ali

    You have all been added to our Mother's Spirituality Group prayer list.

  13. Ashley Casto

    Prayers for your family, Kendra! The Tierney's are even inspiring in their attitude towards cancer!

  14. Kris

    Thank you for sharing this, and for giving us the gift of offering prayers for your husband and your family.

    I read this when you posted but couldn't reply at the time. I'm hyperventilating for you guys and all that this entails for you, I know you know youve got a long road ahead, but your attitude seems just amazing, and so does his judging by his blog anyway, which I did enjoy reading. Lots of prayers and love as you all commence to kicking cancer's butt again!

  16. Andrew H.

    Praying here too! I'm so very sorry you're all going through this. It is not easy and can be so very scary, but He guides us through these awful times. I don't know if you remember my daughter, Cristina (former CTK & DM), but she has been fighting her cancer and likely will be the rest of her life, so I understand what you're going through. She learned a lot of tips in helping to deal with chemo side effects, so if there's anything we can share just let me know. If you'd like to reach me, just let Monica G. know & she can share my contact info. Please know that my family will be praying for your husband and all of you until we hear he is healed!
    God bless,
    Kathy Hernandez

    Lifting up prayers for your entire family. May your eyes of faith embrace each and every grace that God will give to you throughout this journey. His love is steadfast, and he will be holding your hand through it all.

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
