  1. Thank you so much for your honesty and your words. It’s so refreshing to read. You my friend are what is inspiration. I look forward to reading your blog. I too am recovering from abuse and addiction.

  3. I think it’s awesome to see someone of faith being a light to people by sharing their testimony. I’m young and certainly don’t know all there is to know about life, but with the little bit that I’ve gone through I know it isn’t easy. I’m really looking forward to reading new posts you put up and seeing where your life/adventure takes you! And know that you are an inspiration. I feel like God would want you to understand that if you don’t already.


  4. Hi Karen, I’m a fairly new blogger, looking for like-minded bloggers to follow. Did a search for Brené Brown Followers and one of your posts came up. Looking forward to reading more of your story!

  8. Hiya! It’s me, Mother Hen… just letting you know I have nominated you for a string of 3 awards (you may already have some of them, I don’t know) – feel free to accept any or all of them (or not) – it’s up to you, really. I have included links to your blog from my post in any case. I totally understand if you are too busy/overwhelmed/bored/can’t be bothered to share the love forward, but I figure cross-promotion and the possibility of new traffic to your site can’t be a bad thing in any case. But if you don’t want to, that’s perfectly fine… no offense taken, and I surely hope none given!

    Here’s the link… have fun! http://motherhendiaries.wordpress.com/2014/04/22/you-mean-people-actually-read-this-stuff/

  9. Hi Karen! You were the 500 Like on my Sober Courage page! Woot Woot! Thank you so much for all the support, all the great comments, and your amazing insights! HUGS!


  10. Hi! Thanks so much for the follow on my blog, Crazy Good Parent. So glad I came to check out yours. You had me with slicing open Barbie’s and Ken’s mouths so they could French kiss. I hope you’ll consider sharing your crazy with us over at CGP. I’m planning a special series in December for coping with and thinking about the holidays and it would be great to have a contribution about God. I will likely write about being a family of Buddhist/Jewish/Atheists at “the most wonderful time of the year.”


  11. I can’t begin to thank you enough for stopping over and following my humble blog-o-thing! I wish you the very best, be inspired and please take care.
