“There are people who laugh at me. I do get upset because of that,” shares Catherine. Catherine’s condition was very visible, and she attracted attention because of it.

Have you had surgery? Has your child? Even if you were anxiously awaiting treatment, you were probably a bit nervous, scared, and unsure.

Internet scrolling you can feel good about

by on Monday, March 6, 2017 at 6:28 am

Here’s the thing: We scroll through a thousand things every day. A deluge of emails. An increasingly divisive steam of social media posts. Mindless surfing of a website or twenty. Those aren’t bad things, they just aren’t really all that life-giving most of the time. CUREkids is the opposite of that.

Wherever Jesus is, healing follows

by on Monday, December 19, 2016 at 10:11 pm

It’s no secret that Jesus spent a lot of time healing people, but He didn’t necessarily spend a lot of time seeking out people to heal. In Matthew, crowds came to Jesus and placed people with a variety of disabilities at His feet. An entire town gathered at His door in Mark and He healed many of their diseases. A paralyzed man was carried on a mat and brought before Jesus in Luke. In John, a man found Jesus as soon as He arrived in town and begged Him to heal his son.

“All my fears are behind me”

The first time we met John Paul at clinic, he was sitting in the happiest place in the hospital—the playroom—unsuccessfully fighting back tears. A recent fall had left his upper leg in severe pain, and it wasn’t getting any better. We tried to cheer him up with activities, conversation, and anything to distract him. He hadn’t […]

Is God a crutch?

by on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 6:00 am

A few weeks ago, I started seeing a video about crutches pop up all over the place. In this video we see an exciting new redesign for crutches, which basically haven’t changed much or been improved upon since the American Civil War, 150 years ago. It was interesting to see this redesign, since we see a lot of crutches here at the hospital.

In the midst of brokenness

by on Friday, May 6, 2016 at 5:55 am

There is so much brokenness in the world. Broken homes, broken lives and broken hearts. I’m becoming more and more aware of this as I travel around the world. Brokenness is real. It’s so evident in other countries, but it’s also here at home as well. It just feels more broken outside the boundaries of my familiarity.

Facing trials with joy

by on Monday, March 7, 2016 at 6:00 am

This morning, I took time away from my busy-ness to read some of the updates of the CUREkids. Hopeful images of shining smiles in times of distress called me out of my drone-like existence and challenged my apathy. It was said of a girl named Sirgut that, “even if she is in pain sometimes, she always has a beautiful smile on her face to everyone who passes by.” Reading this convicted me of my own discontentment.
