As soon as I read Seth Adam Smith‘s blog post titled “Marriage is Not for You” I was hooked. *And so was the rest of the world*.
Seth has writing that is raw and real–stories that we can relate to, learn from, and gain encouragement from. Stories that expose his soul, and in turn, comfort ours. He’s definitely an inspiration for me to keep writing and reaching for my goals in telling stories without any fear.
So….imagine how *humbled* I was when Seth wanted to interview ME. Yeah. I know. It should’ve been the other way around! But Seth is a friendly, down-to-earth guy that shares a passion for people just like I do.

A big thanks to Seth for taking the time to talk to me about my story and what inspires All Our Lemmony Things… And a big thanks to all the readers and followers who make it worth it.

Hello Ms. Kayla,
I hope you are doing well. I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wonderful story “God will give you more than you can handle,” about a writer whose father died to cancer and how she was able to cope with her great loss. I received it from one of the yahoo groups several days ago and warmed my entire body despite the bitter cold. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way. Please let me know if you are the same Kayla Lemmon who wrote the story.
Happy New Year,
Yes, I’m the one who wrote that. Thank you for your kind words, Hamza!
I have always thought that God will never give me more than I can handle until I lost my precious one-year-old daughter to Spina Bifida two months ago. Deep sadness filled my heart and I experienced an unbearable pain in my soul for her short life. Your gentle words have no doubt alleviated the emotional, heavy burden I carried with me since the day we buried her. God has given me more than I can handle, but I have come to realize that the images, the sounds, and the sleepless nights we experienced in the hospital room are now the most precious moments we shared with her. She was so fragile and not old enough to talk, but I am quite sure that I heard her cry inwardly for God to take her home and to release her from the torturing pain she was going through. I am now filled with peace that she is in a safe, loving place now and she is resting in God’s blessed hand where there is no pain at all.
An inspiring story and so true! I always like to write the “truth”, even though I have been accused of wearing my feelings on my shirtsleeve! People are encouraged by honesty. Blessings! IN CHRIST ALONE
Kayla…you are as good a writer as Seth too. You have a way with words that really connects with people. Your blog is one of my favorites. 🙂
I agree with Lisa S! I am hooked to both of your blogs!! 😀
Hamza.. I wish I could give you a huge hug. I am sorry for the extreme pain you have recently gone through. I lost my daughter too. I hope you never feel alone. You aren’t. Ever! I will keep you in my prayers. May you continue to feel God’s love.. xo
Thanks, dearest Kayla, for your kind words and gentle comfort. My heart ached for your daughter, too. Death is not extinguishing light, it is putting out the lamp because dawn has already come. Their dawn has come no doubt. May their souls be blessed and forgiven. May God help us embrace pain and burn it as fuel for the long journeys of our healing.
