His Beloved of Texas is a lay apostolate in Austin, TX. We put on Adoration, worship nights, and retreats at parishes across the Diocese. We have a great love for Jesus in the Eucharist and want to give people a chance to encounter His great love and sit at His feet. We also have two podcasts! Check out our podcast page for more details. Come along and journey with us!
Kendra is a wife, speaker, coach, and mother of 6. Growing up Catholic, she was also deeply formed by her involvement with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and her protestant friends who beautifully lived out what it meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Because she wasn't rooted in the teachings and truth of the Church and the Eucharist, it was easy for her to leave the church in college. Thankfully, through the intercession of Mama Mary, her parents prayed her Home. Wanting to pour into the youth, she volunteered at her church and ended up marrying the youth minister! They have been living a life of evangelization ever since. She has a love for teaching young girls about their worth and identity in Christ, and loves to share her love story that could only be written by God. Kendra is a chastity speaker and she shares how chastity and waiting for the man that God was preparing for her heart changed her life forever. This story has touched many young girls over the last two decades. Kendra gave this inspiring talk at the Thrive Chastity event for thousands of teens with chastity speaker Jason Evert. Kendra is also a High School volleyball coach. She was the founder of a women's group called Oasis and the retreat Mom's Turn. To hear more of Kendra's story listen to Episode 2 of the His Beloved podcast.
