  54. Sandy says:

    This is the first time i dare to post since day 1 when I started reading your blog. I’ve been aching the whole way… With no words to express anything. But, this time I had to comment. It made my day! God is answering our prayers. God is wonderful and amazing! (He’s not a dick) I have faith he will cure JLK. While there is life there is hope. I will fast and pray for a miracle.

    • admin says:

      Let me explain why for me this doesn’t work. It makes me feel like if I pray hard enough…or the right way he will cure her. And if that doesnt happen…again fault falls on me. This much I know. I did not cause this. My faith.. and moreso my relationship with God is more than strong enough for a little name calling.

  55. Zoe says:

    Who’d have ever thought that 2 bites of applesauce could make so many people so very happy!

  56. Susan says:

    This is wonderful!!

    I asked my small group to pray for Jennifer, and for you, and for your family tonight. You, and she, and your lives are touching people in ways you may not imagine. I know that’s small (or no) comfort now, but thank you for sharing your lives with us. We love you, even though we have never met you in person.

  57. Bonnie Muis says:

    “The Beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters Jennifer all the day long (and night);
    And Jennifer shall dwell between His shoulders.”
    Deuteronomy 33:12
    As a little lamb, Jesus is carrying your sweet Jennifer safely to Heaven.
    Jesus is carrying you too Libby, and your family. His shoulders are big enough for all of you! Even if you are not there for her last breath, Jesus is there with her and His timing is perfect.
    I have fallen in love with Jennifer through your words. Praying You will sense God’s peace.
    Life is not made up of days, but of moments. May you blessed with many precious moments with your Jennifer!

  58. Ana says:

    Yei !!!! So happy ! God bless ur family 😉 ❤️

  59. Samantha Warren says:


  60. Laurel Smith says:

    Yay! I bet it was the best tasting apple sauce ever for her. Enjoy this little victory, JLK and you deserve it!

  61. Stacy Evans says:

    After catching up on JLKs last week, (last night). This seams like
    the best news in awhile. It makes my heart smile for JLK. Still praying
    for you guys!

  62. Baidra Murphy says:

    Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

  63. Awesome! I woke up at 3:00 this morning thinking about you all. Instead of worrying, I just prayed. Relish in those precious moments. xox

  64. Stefanie Coleman says:

    I just found your blog a few days ago and have been in agony for you all and sending prayers to our Heavenly Father. Last night your blog was the last thing I read and this morning it was one of the first things I read. So very happy about those two things! Thank you for sharing that they happened. And for sharing your life. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.

  65. Andrea in Texas says:

    Continued prayers…may these small victories be baby steps to the miracle that I pray occurs. Your strength is truly awe inspiring. JLK’s faith and love for you and the family fill me with such wonder and happiness.

  66. mejoho says:

    Oh…..SO HAPPY FOR JENNIFER…..and her family!!! I shared your story with my sister just yesterday and I know she said a silent prayer for Jennifer, too. We are very aware what CA can do to a family. We don’t like that word or the destruction it causes.

    Here, we’re hoping and praying for MUCH BETTER DAYS for JENNIFER and HER FAMILY. Lots Hugs to ALL of you!!!

  67. Beth says:

    This news made my heart sing! You don’t know me, but we share mutual friends. I am sending love and prayers to you and your family.

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and I’ve grown to know and love JLK and your family. You are all constantly in my thoughts. Hope you are all very strong to support her and to love on her now that she needs it most. And I also hope you can find some peace to heal your very broken hearts. Sending you my love.

  73. Jana says:

    Lord, please spare this sweet child and her family from suffering. I weep and mourn for them/with them. The fear, the sadness, the loss, Lord, please take it all away and fill them up with your peace, love and joy. Thank you, Lord for the moments of joy and love they are experiencing. Please let those moments be more and longer…please lavishly bless this family with all they need. Lord, please use this story to glorify You and make a difference in our government. God bless the Kranz family beyond all earthly understanding. Oh, Father…I pray in your son’s precious name, Jesus. Amen

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price? Thank you, I appreciate it!
