“Karen DeBeus is a powerfully anointed speaker, who shows us Jesus. Her messages are encouraging, challenging and accompanied with truth and love.” – conference attendee
While I love writing, there is nothing like face-to-face meetings in real life. I love talking with homeschooling families and women at events. Real-life hugs, chats, and prayers are such a blessing!
Karen DeBeus is an author, national speaker, and podcaster who is passionate about sharing her love for Jesus. Her ministry, Simply Living for Him, exists to encourage living more simply as we pursue God above all else. In a world that is often filled with busyness, Karen encourages families to seek Jesus above the noise of this world. He is the remedy to clutter and chaos! The more we desire Him, the less we desire the things of this world. Karen speaks to homeschooling families in a real and authentic way, pointing them to Jesus in the homeschooling journey. She encourages simplicity in homeschool and getting rid of distractions that hinder us in homeschool and in life.
What recent attendees are saying:
“By far, your blog and FB page have been the most valuable resource I walked away with from the convention. I downloaded your books that very same weekend and read through them immediately. I plan to read again later this summer while we are on vacation. As a “newbie”, I can tell you that I have to fight off the feelings of being overwhelmed. Yours is a site that reminds me of what truly matters. God bless and keep up the good work – you are making a difference!” ~A HEAV attendee
“I needed to hear Karen DeBeus! Thanks for reminding me to enjoy every second of this homeschool journey and to stop trying to keep busy prove to anyone that we are teaching & learning! It’s the time spent as a family with God being our master educator!” ~ TTD Nashville attendee
“Thank you for your transparency and sharing some of your family struggles. It’s amazing to see how God turns everything for good for those who love Him. More importantly, thank you for sharing your passion for Christ!!!” ~ a recent conference attendee
