Karen was a self-proclaimed “pew potato” until God changed her heart and her life’s direction through a Bible study in her church. A passion for the Word of God was ignited that has grown into a full time ministry. Karen’s mission is to challenge believers to discover the great adventure of loving God with all your heart, mind and soul.
“I press on so that I may take hold of that for which
Christ Jesus took hold of me.”
For the past 18 years, Karen has enjoyed teaching God’s Word to men, women, and children in numerous Bible study and Sunday School classes, weekend retreats and conferences. Her message transcends denominational lines, enabling her to speak to any group. She fervently wants to reach other “pew potatoes” with God’s passion and purpose for their lives.
Karen is a graduate of the College of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma. For 29 years she operated her own custom home design firm in Ardmore, Oklahoma. She stepped away from her home design business to respond to God’s call to write a Bible study on Heaven, Heavenly Minded for Earthly Good. Since its publication in March 2007, she continues to teach and speak God’s Word in her own church, community, and a wide variety of audiences wherever the Lord leads. She and her husband Don, have two grown children, Ross and Taylor. Taylor and her husband Andy are expecting a baby boy in August.
