Hi, I'm Kara.
Kara wants to know everything about everything, but especially about God. She looked high and low for a very long time before figuring out that to really know about God, you have to get to know God, and the only real way to do that is by accepting his invitation to know his son. Since making that decision, she’s gone to Mozambique on mission, made wonderful friends in small group and Bible study, serves in the Venue on Sundays, and (not so) secretly wishes to go to grad school for theology someday. When she’s not being the smiling face and voice of the PCC office on Mondays and Tuesdays, you can find her reading, crocheting, or coordinating the chaos of her homeschooled kids, her husband, and their mini-zoo.
What are you listening to?
I can’t get enough of Hillsong United’s So Will I (100 Billion X)
Something unusual in your purse/wallet/desk/car?
I have four kids and a grandbaby. There’s been something weird in purse pretty consistently for 21 years. Surprisingly, today, the only unusual thing is a matchbook. It’s from IF:Gathering and is a reminder of 2 Timothy 1:6-7.
Funniest/Worst vacation memory:
My worst vacation memory is from middle school. My mom and step-dad had a timeshare in central Tennessee, and we took my best friend, Holly, on vacation with us. I think it was spring break. We took a chartered tour to Gatlinburg for the day and Holly and I gorged ourselves on salt water taffy. We both got so sick. I’m quite sure we actually came down with stomach flu, but I can’t eat salt water taffy to this day.
The best thing you cook/bake:
My lasagna and my potato soup are the stuff of legend at my house.
Game show or reality TV show you’d want to be on?
The Sing-Off. I don’t think it’s even on anymore, but I was in a cappella choir and jazz choir in high school, and would love to be part of a group again. There’s something amazing about being part of that magical kind of blend of voices.
