Legacy

I was ten years old when I first started keeping a journal. I’ll spare you the details of what I wrote in this first journal, but it was far from a Christ-centered record of life. The topics frequently covered were: the boys I liked, the friends I had, and what I did on that particular […]

When we were first married, my husband and I, like many young couples, had opposite expectations for many things. When our first anniversary rolled around, he wanted to go camping but I wanted to go to Malibu. When buying items for our first Christmas, he grabbed the colored Christmas lights and I grabbed the white. […]

When Stress Changes Our Plans In 2015, my Labor Day did not go according to plan. Instead of spending an enjoyable day with friends, I sat in an emergency care center learning that I had shingles. One of the diagnostic questions the doctor asked me was if I had recently been under significant stress to […]

“I saved a seat for you!” These words from my new friend were exactly what I needed to hear to take a deep breath and relax. Just moments before, I had been sitting in my car and very seriously considering just going home. As a generally outgoing person, I was embarrassed by how nervous I […]

Having a mentor in my life has always been important in my spiritual growth, but there are several “mentors” that I have never met and will never meet. These people have mentored me through their writing and […]

You can subscribe to their blog for weekly updates and more material that will encourage you to lead like Jesus! “How old are you?” It’s one of the first questions I was asked when […]

We’ve all been there. Approaching Thanksgiving Day with a list of complaints piling up in our hearts, clouding our vision from what truly matters. I’ve walked through a lot of Thanksgivings struggling to be truly grateful, with my eyes set on the temporary and not the eternal. If you’re in the same boat, struggling to […]

Introduce yourself as if we were on a coffee date! Tell us about yourself. Would you be drinking coffee or tea?  Hey there! I’m Kara. You might know me as Gretchen’s older sister, Trey’s goofy wife, or Kate, Justin, and Alisa’s crazy mom. I wear many hats throughout the day, but some of my favorites […]
