I met Karen on my first trip to Israel 6 years ago (I can't believe it's been that long!). Our fearless leader, Chris Katulka, for the first 2 and half weeks kept telling us about how amazing his wife of 8 months was. He would tell us she was hilarious, super sweet, and had the best heart. Our little group was nervous about meeting her because either Chris was right and this woman is really intimidating, or Chris is still in the honeymoon phase and she's no where near as awesome as he thinks. Well, when she finally arrived in Israel and it turned out Chris was wrong, very wrong. Karen was so much more amazing than he described!
Karen has the best sense of humor (I mean seriously, talk show host funny), her heart is so full of love for the Lord and for his creation, and is ready to jump in and serve wherever there is a need. Today, six years later, they have beautiful family - their daughter Olive and twin sons Cohen and Preston. I can't believe what Karen is able to accomplish in a day. For our very first guest on the blog, she couldn't have been more perfect. Once you're done reading through our interview, go check out her blog. She is truly one of the most transparent and honest people I know. Hit her up with some questions of your own in the comments!Read More
