We want to provide ideas, inspiration, and information for moms everywhere as we look at the world around us through MomColoredGlasses...
This week’s mom profile is of Karen, our newest regular contributor to Looking Up. She will be joining Kate DeVries as they both share their perspectives on faith each month.
These days, she lives with her young daughter and husband in Oklahoma City, but once upon a time, we rode the bus together to school and swam together in her neighborhood pool. We reconnected on Facebook (surprise, surprise) and I have enjoyed following her journey to motherhood over the last year. It is an understatement to say that I was thrilled when she decided to join us at MCG. Look for Karen’s first Looking Up post tomorrow!
