Missional Living Marriage encourages and equips you to experience a deeper marriage through Christ.

I know how it feels to be married and feel empty. I know the deep wounds you are carrying. I feel your hurt and lament with you. But I want you to know that you don’t have to stay where you are right now. There is hope!

My husband and I have listened and walked alongside couples for the past few years. We have found that most couples have the same struggles because we believe our spouse will complete us. What do we do when our ideal world is shattered? We need a new vision that shows us the true understanding of love and marriage in God’s economy.

Our marriages can’t be left up to chance or placed on auto pilot once we say, “I do.” Each day we must live out our marriages missionally. Marriage unites two sinners to become one. Our marriage is not all about us; it’s about glorifying God and to be a representation of how Christ loves the church. Yes, God wants us to have great marriages, but he also wants our marriages to be holy and glorify Him!
Missional Living Marriage is where you’ll find guidance, biblical truth, and tools to strengthen and grow your marriage for His glory.
Sweet friend, my prayer for you is that you will choose to fight for your marriage!

About Karen


Hi I’m Karen!

I have been married to the love of my life for over thirty-two years and I married him twice. Yes, we have been through some very difficult struggles, which in part is how Missional Living Marriage came about. Looking back over that trying time, feeling hopeless and like I had nowhere to turn; I feel led to share what I’ve learned

 I am a mother of two adult children and a grandmother, “Mimi,” one of my best titles yet! Oh, and I can’t forget my two, four-legged friends, Journey and Oso.

I want to serve Jesus well and share the hope and love I have found in Christ personally and in my marriage. I have a heartfelt desire to live life missionally for Christ, which is a quest I will be on till He brings me home.

Are you just living, or are you living missionally?

I invite you to jump in with me and take on this incredible mission!



“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13 ESV)

I believe…

…All of scripture is the inerrant Word of God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training of righteousness. (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16)

…The Word of God is living and active and applies for all ages of time. (Hebrews 4:12)

…all humanity is made in the image of God, and are meant to glorify God in His creation. (Genesis 1:27-30; 1 Corinthians 10:31)

…The Godhead exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom worked together in the Creation. (Deuteronomy 6:4)

…God the Father is all-powerful (Omnipotent), all-present (Omnipresent), and all-knowing (Omniscient). 

…in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. His deity,  virgin birth, sinless humanity, death as substitutional sacrifice for sin, physical resurrection from the dead, and ascension into heaven.  (John 1:1-2, 14, 34; Romans 3:24-26; Romans 8:34)

…the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, indwells, empowers, and seals believers. (John 3:5-8; 14:16-17; 1:7-11; Romans 4:30)

…salvation is a free gift of grace from God and not something to be earned by works. We are justified by faith through Jesus Christ alone.(Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:22)
