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 and Guatemala on mission, made wonderful friends in the Venue, small groups, and Women's Bible Study, and (not so) secretly wishes to go to grad school for theology someday. When she’s not at the office making sure everyone's records are up to date (she is our Church Management Systems Coordinator, after all), you might find her reading, crocheting, or coordinating the chaos of her homeschooled kids, her husband, and their mini-zoo.
What are you listening to?
I still can’t get enough of Hillsong United’s So Will I (100 Billion X), but I also love finding Christian artists they don’t play on the radio – alternative and folk are my faves.
Something unusual in your purse/wallet/desk/car?
I have four kids and a grandbaby. There’s been something weird in my purse pretty consistently for over 20 years.
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 for 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. I’ve even gotten good at making them gluten and dairy free. Respectively. (I refuse to make the lasagna dairy free – sorry kid.)
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.
