Hi, I’m Karen.
Becoming a friend to the hurting heart has come through the inexpressible experience of watching my precious three year old son slip away in death to leukemia. I was determined to make sense of the pain, and discovered Biblical resources that comforted and brought me healing. Since then, acquiring several certifications in grief coaching and completing a masters of education have all contributed to creating this online school.
Eventually our book, Comfort for the Day, was written so others could access these same resources. When not creating online courses, I lead highly interactive workshops where my audiences learn about healthy grief and/or discover skills to authentically help grieving friends.
My marriage of 40+ years is enhanced with two wonderful adult children and two granddaughters. I am committed to morning speed-walking and enjoy vegetarian cooking, reading, riding on the back of my husband’s motor cycle, and watching thought provoking movies.
Making connections helps me foster a safe and supporting environment for my grief coaching clients. Watching them move from suffering to wholehearted living is deeply satisfying.
Please check out my blog at www.comfortfortheday.com and my Facebook page can be found at Comfort for the Day.
I am looking forward to supporting you in your grief as you participate in the courses we have to offer.
