“Ask God for things, but when He gives you hard opportunities remember that you prayed and asked for it.” –Kendall

Kendall’s testimony shines with such a boundless faith and great expectation from Jesus.

Then there’s the penny.

Kendall fell in love with the penny in fall of 2012, but would have never imagined she would be the voice to help it change the world. 

The journey she has been on for these last four years was never by her design; it was her willingness that made everything possible. “Dream big, and small.” We may not think we have a world-changing dream or idea, but when we come to God with what we do have, and stay obedient in Him, we will see the lives around us change.

God gave Kendall a dream to give the penny a voice – He was the one who changed the world. She was simply a conduit of God’s will and plans flowing through her life.

Admit that you have no idea what you’re doing.” – Kendall

If you want to live a life where the dreams you have come to reality, give it all to God and admit that you aren’t the one in control.
Kendall’s obedience and consistency in her life with her time with God, to her time with people, leaves us inspired and believing in everything she does. Her faithfulness and courage are what gave the penny a voice through prayer and sacrifice.

She lives a life to deem others as worthy and shows us what it really looks like to not only pursuing your dreams, but to live a life that glorifies God in every little decision we make.
