Karen Friday’s passion in moving an audience to laughter, tears, surprise and deep reflection started in elementary school with oratorical contests. She not only possesses an affection for words (just ask her family), but she also cherishes God’s Word. Knowing Jesus more and making Him known is a mission she carries out through speaking, mentoring, writing and blogging. In the blogging world, Karen is referred to as Girl Friday where she shares a central message: You are never far from hope. Her heartbeat is helping followers of Christ live with authentic hope and faith in real life. Karen has published both devotionals and articles and is currently working on her first non-fiction book. She considers her life as a pastor’s wife and women’s ministry leader a sacred calling. Karen and her husband Mike reside in East Tennessee and have two grown children and two grandchildren. The entire family is fond of the expression, “TGIF: Thank God it’s Friday.” They owe Monday an apology.
