“We were really blessed when Karen came to Carnegie Church of Christ. Karen’s heartfelt testimony of her brokenness, and the power and love of Jesus to heal, were an inspiration to us. Many of the folk who came were not “churched” people, Karen’s warmth and openness helped them to feel at ease and open up to the work of God in their lives. I would have no problems recommending her ministry.”
Karen has released two CDs of her original music and has published a children’s picture book.
“Thank you so much for giving us such an inspiring morning with your beautiful music. I have been playing your CD non-stop in the car and it is giving me inspiration to face the busy schedule I have each day lately.”
Karen is available to speak at Sunday services, retreats, women’s events, seniors’ groups, conferences, social events, and other church functions.
“The Ladies at Wonthaggi Baptist were touched by the message of your life’s journey, and how God has healed and blessed you. So many comments were made about your soothing and encouraging songs and how you integrated them with your testimony, and especially that they were your own songs and written from your heart. Thankyou for making the trip down and sharing your journey with us; you have been a real blessing.”
Karen’s story can be used to enhance and match up with your church’s current focus. She adapts her testimony and choice of songs to fit in neatly with your service requirements.
‘We were very happy that Karen came to our Young in Heart Seniors Group. She shared her experiences of teaching vulnerable youth and her chaplaincy experiences. It was very moving and showed her heart of compassion in doing this work. With her lovely voice she sang some of the songs she has written. It was a very insightful and moving time for us.’
“Karen’s testimony was uplifting, encouraging, and inspiring on many levels and was a blessing to all of us. It is a beautiful marriage of words and song which flow seamlessly together. God’s love, faithfulness, guidance and protection comes through powerfully in her presentation. Karen was encouraged to get out of her comfort zone and God honoured her obedience. A joyful and healing testimony.”
“It was truly inspiring to hear how God worked, and still works, in Karen’s life. Her songs are so meaningful, and through them Karen gives glory to our heavenly Father. Thankyou Karen and Jeff. Keep sharing your testimony!”
She caught my eye the moment I walked into the room. Her eyes were glazed over. She looked scared. But there was a touch of cheekiness hidden there too.
I’ll call her Melissa. The student I’ll never forget. She was only one of many needy students. The majority had been sent here because they didn’t have jobs and hadn’t completed year 10. I began to have my eyes opened to a whole new group of people. People I once blamed for being homeless, taking drugs, stealing. Now I saw them afresh.
Snippets of Melissa’s past were slowly revealed as she began to trust me more….
