On this episode, Lisa Nehring talks with one of her adult kids, Kendra Vittioe, about a life-threatening accident Kendra lived through.

When Kendra was 14, she, her siblings, and a friend were in an accident where the minivan they were riding in was t-boned by a truck. Kendra survived a frontal lob head injury that could have killed her. A piece of her skull was removed, and the neurosurgeons literally had to vacuum pieces of glass from her brain.

This was a “near miss” tragedy, as Kendra and everyone else involved walked away from the accident with physical injuries that healed.

Have 13:5 & 6: “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.”

Jer 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Our animals- a horse and a dog at the time- helped Kendra regain her confidence.

Having “green therapy- the ability to just go outside and take long walks.

Parents being aware of the anxiety- or trauma response- to certain stimuli and remind their kids to breathe and that it will be alright.

Being aware of what the kids can and not do- keeping in touch with them so that parents aren’t going “too easy” or “too hard” on them.

Kendra and her husband Tony are homeschooling their own children. You can find Kendra blogging at Life’s a Journey and on Pinterest.
