"Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near... For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55:6,9

Hello friends and family,
Here is an update on Kylie and her progress..

Kylie is still struggling with her short term memory. She is making very small improvements each day though. The memories don't last from day to day, but she has remembered a few things after they have happened. She doesn't remember everything or answer correctly all the time, but sometimes when we prompt her she can remember the little details about her day, which is a small victory!
We still need a ton of prayer for her memory to keep improving and for her brain to keep healing itself!

Therapy has been the most trying thing for Kylie, and for my family. She is no longer attending therapies at the rehab center because she refuses to participate. We have engaged in a new type of therapy where therapists come to our house. Kylie still refuses to participate sometimes when they come to our house, which is the most difficult part of the journey so far for us. She gets mad whenever the word therapy is mentioned or when she sees a therapist. It worries us because this window of time is so important for her to receive as much help as possible in her healing process. She has been refusing all her therapies though, and we really feel like we have tried all our avenues in this realm. This is where we need the most prayer so she can heal as much as possible in this phase of her recovery. Pray for her to not be so negative anytime she hears the word therapy and anytime she sees a therapist. Please pray for knowledge and perseverance for my mom and my family on this part of the journey because our faith is tested every day right now.

When she is not engaging in therapies and hearing the word 'therapy', she is very sweet and always does whatever we ask her to do. She helps out around the house, she makes her bed every morning, she sets the table for dinner, and she always helps us empty the dishwasher! :) She wants to speak to others and share her story of how God got her through this crazy journey. She wants to share her faith with others and help them persevere through their battles because she got through hers! It is very inspiring to hear her talking about this :)

The last thing I want to mention is an amazing event that some of our neighbors and friends are putting on to fundraise for Kylie. It is a golf tournament that is taking place at Los Serranos Country Club on July 28th. I attached a flyer to this post, but you can contact Don Herold at or Brian Lerg at for more information!

Thank you everyone for your continuing prayers and support. We are staying strong on this journey because of our amazing circle of friends and family, and of course because of God! Keep praying and thanking God each day!

"Look to the Lord and His strength, continually; seek His face always."
Psalm 105:4
