Chronic Joy® Staff Writer and Prayer Team

Karin is a handmaiden of the Lord, saved by grace, a worshiper, a poet, a broken heart, a lover of words, His work in progress on the Potter's wheel. She is hungry for truth and amazed by love. After five years in Africa, Karin and Rick (her beloved husband of almost twenty-five years), are back in rural Canada, where chronic pain drives her to the feet of Jesus. She is powered by prayer, love, and many cups of strong coffee. She is the author of From Ashes to Glory (A Psalm a Day).

Lesson in Humility

The world tells us to be proud of ourselves when we need no help from others. God is teaching me lessons in humility.


Be humble before the Lord.

Axe Head Lost

The axe head I had dropped, was surrender, death to self, and life in Him. He could teach me how to relax into the work He has for me.


I felt distant from the two things that mean the most to me: Jesus and writing.

Keep Listening

Life can get overfilled so easily with the voices and concerns of others. I maintained my regular morning quiet times but sensed a new distance from the Lord. I will seek. I will wait. I will listen still – but speak, Lord.


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me."
