About R Kyle McDaniel

Hey there! My name is Kyle McDaniel, I’m 39 years old and I live in Fort Worth, TX with my wife Kitty and our two kids, Henry 3 and Catherine 1. Both Kitty and I are “from” North Texas but have moved around here and there throughout our lives but this area has always felt like it was home for us. 1/7/2021: I figured it was time for an update. The four of us became the five of us this year as we welcomed our third child to our family, our precious baby girl Vivienne Coers McDaniel. Vivivenne means “alive” and Coers was my wife Kitty’s maiden name and it’s French meaning “heart/s” and it’s our faith the Lord will one day give her a new and living heart to fulfill the meaning of her name. Kitty and I met in December of 2010 and were married on July 28th, 2012. We had both come to know the Lord and be born again before meeting each other and have seen our relationship with Him grow and mature through the years of our marriage as we’ve learned to love each other as He has loved us. We are just a regular family I guess, just people who really need Jesus and love him very much. If you feel lead to reach out, please do so, we’d love to hear from you or anything you think the Holy Spirit would have you share with us. God Bless, Kyle

“Behold I stand at the door and knock…”

It’s just so weird. If I had a tally of the time I chit chatted and small talked while at church and among my brethren versus the amount of time we spent just talking about Jesus as we fellowshipped in … Continue reading

The Yield of Suffering

Suffering is the means by which we know Christ. If it is said, “I shall know him, even as I have been fully known” then we shall know him by his cross or not at all. The cross was for … Continue reading

Blessing and Brokeness

“It’s the most peculiar thing but blessing flows from brokenness just as the Spirit flowed from the Rock which it had shattered. The greater blessing is that which is born of the cross. On the cross and there alone do … Continue reading

Adam or Christ?

Doug Wilson speaks frequently and accurately about the crisis of masculinity in the church. See here: And here: And it’s no wonder there’s a crisis of masculinity in America and the west at large because the church hasn’t modeled biblical … Continue reading
