Enough is Enough.The Need to Live More Simply • ep 150

Life is short. So why do we waste it on details that will turn to dust one day? As our society gains more and more convenience, we also gain more and more confusion and distraction from what we are really supposed to be living for. If we spent the same amount of time on things of God that we do on Internet scrolling, Netflix binging, shopping, decor, and more…we could change the world!
Join me as we focus on the One who matters most and what we are truly living for! Living with less is really so much more!


Homeschool Consulting & Mentorship

Now Taking Appointments!

“I am grateful for a Spirit-filled woman like Karen who I could discuss homeschooling and life within this new adventure of hers. I have been homeschooling for seven years and felt like I needed some outside perspective for my life and homeschool. I chose Karen because I love her focus on living for Jesus and I desire that for my life. I opted for a one-hour session with her via FaceTime. The hour flew by. The format worked well because Karen came to the hour-long session well-prepared after reviewing a questionnaire I had previously filled out. She listened to my concerns and questions and provided feedback. She prayed for me, encouraged me, challenged me, and gave me some things to think and pray about. Her insight and perspective were such a blessing to me. I highly recommend the consultation! If I ever feel the need to have outside perspective again, I would do another consultation again. It was a great investment for me and my family.”

Surrender Instead of Striving//ep149

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

I have learned many lessons lately and one that stands out is how important it is to maintain a posture of surrender rather than striving. Surrender doesn’t mean sit back and do nothing, in fact, you will get more done (in God’s strength) than you ever imagined.

In a world of planners and to-do lists and folks always trying to control their lives and strive for greater achievement, it is actually comforting to know every detail is controlled by God and ordained before time began. Simple living is much easier to reach in a life surrendered to God.

Homeschool to College • ep 148

this podcast sponsored by Apologia

We have officially dropped my daughter off at college after homeschooling grades from K-12. What a surreal experience! And I have learned so much! I was also blindsided by some things, however. So grab your coffee and sit down with me today, as I want to share with you as a girlfriend- the good, the bad, and everything in between…to encourage you to feel all the feels and to walk through it all in God’ strength. There is so much going on at this time that is exciting, scary, happy, sad, and all of it is ok! It gives us more of an opportunity to lean on the Lord.

I also want to share with you how my perspective has changed and I am even more laser-focused to simplify my life than ever! 

Whether you are walking this journey now or will be someday, I hope you will be encouraged!

The Idol of Homeschooling (and Other Things That Distract Us) • ep 147

Recently I posted on Instagram about the idol of homeschooling. It received quite a bit of feedback and I wanted to talk further about it today.

Whether you are a homeschooler or not, we all can relate to getting distracted by the things we love or the things we do– before we know it, those things have been put on a pedestal while we have lost sight of Who should really be on the pedestal- the Lord. Let’s stop giving glory to anything but God in our lives. Let’s shed the identity of “homeschool mom,” “soccer mom,” “working mom,” “single lady” and stand in our identity as a CHILD OF GOD! Let’s shine our light for Him and not for homeschooling or whatever it is we do. Because ultimately, it is He who causes all things to work in us.
