I love to serve and be available for God, but over the past few years, there have been some necessary changes due to my illnesses.

Kara, her husband Conrad, and their crazy calico cat, Lulu, live in Calgary, Canada, where she has been a teacher for 28 years. Kara felt led to write a book of devotionals when her own journey with chronic illnesses pressed her into God’s arms of love more deeply. She prays that her journey and refinement will also encourage you in your walk with God.
