“Find Something More – A Story of Transformation and Grace”

Kendra Von Esh was a Corporate Executive who thought she had it all—money, prestige, and power, She had bought into the “me” culture. She devoured all the pleasures this world had to offer but nothing satisfied her desire to “Find Something More”. Her life was  filled with stress and anxiety and feelings of never being good enough continued as the norm.  She bought into the lie that life was not supposed to be peaceful and loving … that it was stressful and difficult so party hard because life is short.

Kendra was a confirmed Catholic – but learned nothing about the Faith. She only went to Mass on Christmas and Easter as a child. Her family never spoke about religion or God and so the world raised her. When she moved out on her own she wasn’t going to church of any kind for decades.

I spent most of my life seeking acceptance, love, peace and happiness in everyone and everything … except God.

Then God found her on Easter in 2013 and flipped her reality upside down and transformed her life! Kendra’s transformation was so miraculous that she left her Executive Career to inspire others to deepen their relationship with God as a Catholic Speaker, TV News Anchor, Radio Host and Author.

She speaks about how her relationship with God, the supernatural sacramental graces of the Faith and gifts of the Holy Spirit have changed everything in her life!

He completely transformed me! I am overflowing with so much joy and supernatural peace because of God’s love. I want this for everyone.”

Kendra’s passion is helping her audiences ‘Find Something More’ as they experience the supernatural transformation, acceptance, peace, and joy that can only come from God.

                          Psalm 46: Be Still And Know That I Am God!

HISTORY of Mary Queen of Humility Chapter of Magnificat; Scarborugh Maine

[for the Diocese of Portland, Maine]

In Maine a group of four women had been meeting weekly to study the bible together for over 15 years. They began to pray that God would use them to start some kind of ministry for women in the state of Maine. They were also asking God what name to call their group. The original group included Cindi Schaab, Cindy Andreson, Cathy Koenig, and Rose Clark (who has passed on to God).

In April 2010, while at Mass, Cindi Schaab was given the word “Magnificat”. Excitedly, when she got home she called Cindy Andreson, one of the women in her group to tell her. Cindy Andreson, was excitedly trying to call Cindi Schaab at the very same time to tell her that she had discovered an exciting women’s ministry on the internet called “Magnificat Ministry”.

So, after contacting Kathy MacInnis in New Orleans, the formation began for Magnificat Maine. An intercessory prayer group was formed and has grown to more than 25 women who have  been meeting monthly to pray since May of 2010. The service team prayerfully received from the Holy Spirit,  “Mary, Queen of Humility”, for their chapter name. Father John Bacevicius, OFM was knowledgeable about Magnificat and he became our chapter’s Spiritual Advisor.

On September 8, 2015, the paperwork from the state of Maine for incorporation was approved. On September 15, 2016, the notification came through for acceptance in the Official Catholic Directory in the Portland, Maine Diocese. These were both Marian feast days. On November 7, 2016, Magnificat-Scarborough, ME Chapter was officially approved. Kathy MacIinnis poignantly revealed to the service team that this date of approval was very significant because it was her mother, Caroline’s birthday. Her mother, Ms. Caroline, had been an enthusiastic prayer intercessor for Magnificat Ministry, and Kathy said she has entrusted Magnificat-Scarborough, ME Chapter to her mother’s special intercession in Heaven.

The Holy Spirit has been forming and guiding this group each step of the way in miraculous ways. It has been a long process but God’s Holy Timing is perfect. Magnificat Maine will host their first Magnificat meal on September 9, 2017.

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God My Savior”!
