When Words Begin to Heal
The old adage "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can
never hurt me" is not true. Demeaning, caustic words can cause
invisible scars that erode self-esteem. Through Scriptural examples,
inspirational testimonies, and Karenís own personal journey youíll
learn to apply ďGodís loveĒ to your own life. Youíll come away
praising God because you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Many people struggle with hidden fears, and doubts that make them want
to run from life. Karen uses the story of Elijah in 1 Kings 19 to
demonstrate God's love and mercy. She weaves in her own personal
journey of faith through multiple traumas.
Thorns Among the Roses
Karen's heartwarming presentation on forgiveness demonstrates that it
is a process that sets us free. Forgiveness is a sweet fragrance to
our souls. It is the rosebud in the hand of Christ. Sometimes Christ
is referred to in Scripture as the Rose of Sharon. Only He can set us
Thank God I Am Clay
With humor and insight, Karen shows her audience how God uses life's
tough problems to mold and shape us. We can find wholeness in Christ -
even after the loss of a child. When our hearts burn with grief, God
is present molding us like fine silver.
Renewal of Hope
With humor and through Scripture Karen directs her audience to the
truth that we are created with the loving hands of a heavenly Father.
He has known us since we were in our mother's womb. All our days are
accounted for. As individuals we are each "Somebody Special" to God.
Hope may be described like the upside of a beautiful embroidery piece.
It is the golden thread that God uses to bind together faith and love.
A masterful work of art God creates to join our hearts and souls
together with patience and determination.
From Godís Heart to Your Heart: From the Ordinary to the
What do you do when someone you love disappoints you, or even
betrays you? Joseph didnít see the unexpected coming. One moment life
was as usual, the next it dumped him into a pit. Being stripped of his
multi-color coat and sold into slavery, by his own brothers, was not
exactly the kind of day heíd planned. Yet, even from the pit, Joseph
trusted God. Often life brings the unexpected, are you prepared? God
taught Karen that when illness stripped her of the career she loved,
He had a better plan. Through Scripture and true stories, Karen
demonstrates how your life, too, can be transformed from the ordinary
to the extraordinary.
Erasing Old Tapes
"Marriage is a gift from God," declares Karen in this
presentation. "Yet, when John and I married we had to find a way to
erase the old "tapes" - memories of past hurts." Karen demonstrates
how through Scripture, prayer, and putting together a creative
Marriage Statement, she and her husband overcame. We all need
laughter, honesty, and trust in our marriages. Our faith became the
roadway to our success in overcoming.
Grandma, Were You Ever a Mommy?
With a grandmother's love Karen explores with young mothers the
importance of listening to our children. She emphasizes looking for
special moments. Journaling your child's sayings will be a treasure
that will warm your heart on the coldest of nights.
Heart to Heart
Karen uses humor and true experiences to enrich the hearts of
young mothers. She presents thought-provoking answers on how to keep
our children safe in a world that is sometimes hostile and unsafe.
Karen says, "Developing faith in God enhances our children's well
being and character."
