Today, we get the opportunity to hear from Karen Holdeman on the podcast! Karen shares how to stand in the gap for our children through prayer as they grow up. Karen also shows us what it looks like to boldly hold God to His Word. Finally, she reminds us that God's good gifts don't often come packaged the way we want them to, but they always transform us into the likeness of His son Jesus!

Karen wants to live in a world where God's authority is acknowledged, life at all ages in valued, addictions do not exist, strawberries grow year round, and roses never fade. When she's not helping with Connection Groups at her church or playing with grandkids, you can find her taking walks with her husband, Randy, or camping with the family.

Her favorite Scripture is Psalm 23 and Revelation 2:10c, NASB.
