About Me

Are you tired of the striving?

Tired of feeling like you are not enough?

Looking down the road of your life ahead and wondering who you are and where you are going?

Struggling with the idea of perfection because you believe that on the other side you will find your joy & worth?

You are trying so hard to be someone else that you are missing who God really created you to be.

I’m Karen and I want you to know you are not alone in your struggle with “am I enough?”

I’m here to speak truth, especially in those dim moments and to empower you to give yourself permission to fully walk in who you are in Christ. Friend, own the value that you bring to this world- showing up right now… in the middle!

My mission is to inspire you to find your strength, confidence and identity in who you are in Christ. Learn to remove the pressure of striving by simply accepting who you are right now.

I want you to know that I’ve been exactly where you are. I have dealt with the runaway emotions, isolation, perfection and questioning my worth. I know what its like to be wife, mom and still fell like you don’t have it together. Because of my journey of learning to let go , I have truly found peace in knowing that I am enough in Christ and I’m learning daily to show up in my life right where I am. I am able to savor the process and relinquish the striving. I’m truly living in the abundance of God – my way!

And I want to encourage you to do the same.

Let’s show up right now where we are, embrace the strength we have and grow in our confidence. Let’s press forward and do life in the middle. Together.

I am a Connecticut born and raised girl who now lives in New York, with my husband and our four kids.

When I am not busy keeping my tribe happy, healthy and alive you can find me in Starbucks writing or having long coffee dates with a friend. Or just binge watching on too much Netflix or Hallmark channel movies!

I am passionate about living my healthiest life.. and I love to run. Running is my place where I can be alone, clear my mind and get lost in my music and thoughts. Running for me is my best way to Glorify God with my body and my soul.

Life for me is a process of many steps forward and some steps back, by no means has it looked perfect. I am seeking God , believing what He says about me and taking in one step and prayer at a time. And I want to inspire and motivate you to do the same!
