What do children need to thrive? What will give them the best possible chance at success? How can we instill positive values and shape solid citizens?

You’ll learn the essential keys to helping kids succeed, including:

  • How to Shape Values, Confidence and Self-Image
  • The Hidden Secret of Character
  • How Kids Learn Resilience
  • The 5 Keys to Academic Success
  • How to Help Kids Discover Their Passion and Purpose

“Karen has always been there to listen to my needs and is the definition of a prayer warrior whose faith never wavers.

She also has encouraged me to focus on the musical creativity that God has graciously given to me, through using her own talents as an artist. And Karen’s spiritual strength and depth was evident when leading her cell group meetings. It was there that she helped me to get back on a path to following my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for which I will always be grateful!"

“Karen has been an invaluable resource for me over many years, coaching with both personal and business matters, always directing me in Godly ways that are based on Scripture.  She is an expert on human relationships and family dynamics and interactions.  I am so very blessed to have found her!”

"Karen always has one ear to heaven as she listens.  She has helped me gain fresh perspective and find solutions to my questions."

“Karen is full of wisdom and compassion. Her insights are not only helpful but provide encouragement through every stage of life!”
