An Audience of One

Faith-Based Musings of Kendra Purtell


Hello and welcome!

I’m a wife and mother, living in California, along with my family. My story involves a history of health issues, which led to a prolonged addiction to prescription Fentanyl. More importantly, my story involves healing, deliverance, and freedom from Fentanyl. You can hear some of this story here.

I enjoy blogging about my faith, life in general, and all things humorous.


As to the title of this site, it was inspired by The Man In The Balcony, which is a story my dad has told through the years. It’s a story I think of often, and is explained more in the post titled What’s In a Name.

In the performance of life, let us remember there is just one in the audience whose opinion truly matters. May this richest of understandings then shape the entirety of how we live each day.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

🤍, Kendra Purtell
