This is the amazing Kenley Randolph. We’ve been friends for a while now, and have both acted in some films together. But, you need to hear her incredible story... Kenley recently has undergone an extremely painful surgery to remove a fat tumor attached to the spine. She has been in so much pain after the surgery that she couldn’t stand, walk, or move her back.
However, Monday while sitting with her parents in the hospital she said, "Mom, God and Jesus are talking to me right now in my heart but I can't understand what they are saying." David and Melody (her parents) responded, "Kenley, ask Jesus to help you understand what He’s saying." She pauses, stares ahead tapping at her heart and says, "Jesus help me understand what you are saying" she pauses again staring straight ahead and goes, “He's saying he loves me, that I'm great and He’s with me. Be fun, be brave. You will feel better soon." David and Melody gave her hugs and kisses. She smiles and said, “I’m ready to try to stand and walk.” Whatever you may be going through in your life good or bad make sure to be like Kenley. Listen carefully to what God is saying to you. If you can’t understand, ask again. Because he’s saying, “He loves you. You’re great. He’s with you. Be fun, be brave. And you will be better soon." Thank you Kenley!
I have never been more proud of my little brother. Arden, you are one of the greatest men I know. Loyal, full of life, and overflowing with love. You and Christian were 100% made for each other and will change the world.
Today’s their 1 day anniversary so go celebrate them!
This may be a ridiculous video, but there is an amazing story behind it…
As young middle school kids, Alex and I for fun started creating absolutely hilarious videos and got pretty good at making them. Years later, Alex is now doing visual effects for feature films and I couldn’t be prouder of him. You have probably seen his work without even knowing it. He’s worked on films such as Black Panther, The Shallows, Suicide Squad, and much more.
I tell you all of this to encourage you to pursue anything you love with excellence. Even though this is a ridiculous video, Alex and I constantly tried to make every video with excellence…now almost 10 years later this looks like a video made with today's equipment. Oh, and both Alex and I now get to be paid to produce films.
So be like Alex…don't settle for anything but great work!
Happy Birthday to one of my oldest friends! I love you so much, bro!
This weekend was extremely powerful and wonderful! It was a landmark in my life. And all because Pastor @adamsmallcombe and @keirasmallcombe .
When I first met pastor Adam, I was blown away by how he immediately began to pour into me and called gifts out in my life.
Ten months later he trusted me with his platform and gave me the honor of speaking to VIVE youth & to the entire VIVE church family...a privilege that I don’t take lightly.
Pastors Adam & Kiera you are amazing! Thank you for faithfully encouraging, activating and transforming lives. I am eternally grateful for you and your beautiful family.
