Karen has been involved in various church ministries for 37 years. She was one of five women who founded the women’s support group in 2001, located in the Seattle area, called Partners In Process. She has served on the board of directors of Prodigals International since 2003 and wrote their women’s curriculum for starting groups, designed for women seeking support in dealing with another’s sex and love addiction. She oversees the women’s groups and helps women start PIP groups in their area. Presenting Restoring Hearts Women’s Conference has been a joy to work on since 2008. Karen’s passion is sharing her experience, strength and hope with women and walking alongside them as they rediscover who they are in Christ in the midst of their husband’s unfaithfulness. She has been married for 25 years, home schools their 2 teenage children, and has 2 adult children and a soon-to-be daughter-in-law.
