A message from Karen

I love to let creativity splash on the pages I write. I desire to help you develop strong relationships with your family and God and to live more joyfully. Check out videos of my TV appearances and my numerous upcoming book releases. It’s a pleasure to connect with my readers, so please join me on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter. I will soon be signing a contract for another family devotional. This one will focus on families who impact lives (or deire to do so).

My book The One Year My Princess Devotions won the Christian Retailer Best Awards, children's nonfiction category, for the year of release. These are books the retailers believe have a great impact. Hopefully as Christians we impact lives, including our children’s lives.

 I love to cook, especially breads. My new book Gift of Bread includes recipes, heart warming stores around bread, and insights into bread in the Bible. It’s a book that’s been on my heart for a long time. Jesus is the Bread of Life and I’m thankful for His gift of living bread. Check out a video on making muffin bouquets, a great way to include bread on your table. See more videos on my youtube channel.


Winter and Advent

It’s after Thanksgiving and time for preparing hearts for Christmas! Advent is almost here! Carols and Christmas shows are filling the airwaves. Shoppers are in a frenzy. And

we want a little peace,

               need a lillte peace!

Peace begins with a little God time each day. That’s where an advent reading helps!

Peace continues by making wise time choices.

  • Don’t try to do everything. Chose what you want to do and have time to do.
  • For hard ones on your list, consider a promise note to do someting together or a gift card with a loving letter.
  • All those parties and events might be overwhelming so choose what to attend.
  • All those cookies and treats might be too tempting, so eat soeme veggies and healthy snacks befrore leaving home.

Peace comes with speaking encouragement and avodiing engaging in arguements.

  • We won’t agree with everyone but we can thank a person for sharing his or her views.
  • Silent night and day might be good...pause before speaking and sharing your opinion.

Have a Bleesed Christmas! And may God bless you in the coming year.


Fall Festivities

Fall Fun and Festivities

This fall I will be out and about with my books at various events. It will e fun to engage with people and be in the community. I’ll be at an olive oil and vinegar (From Oil and Grapes)store with my bread book, a Christian book store  (The Faith and Home Store)where I’ll demo baking, some book fairs, Christmas bazaars, and inside amall for an author showcase (Indian River Mall in Vero).

As people shop for Christmas gifts, I hope they consider books since those are lsting gifts. Books open our imaginations to new thoughts and reflections as well as new experiences.

I just cmpleted my 26th book that will release next summer! IT’ a family devotional focusing on families who serve others.
