“Karen is such an engaging person! She spoke to our group with honesty, warmth and humor sharing stories that were completely relatable and making faith seem utterly accessible”


"Karen has deeply moved me. Her spiritual direction was recommended to me by my parish priest and I found in her a great companion to understand my struggles and then  prayerfully pull me out of them. Forever Grateful."

Caitlin McCollom, Texas

"Karen is a beautiful example of a real life hands on Christian soldier who is so approachable, intelligent and loving."

"I love Karen's bible study. It is so simple and un-intimidating, but every page contains a gem. There are so many treasures that you can hold onto in each lesson. During conflicting times as these, this book is reassuring especially if you are having trouble forgiving. This is one of God's answers to prayer. You want to know peace? You want to know joy? This study has it and the weekly activities to help with your connection to God."
