I've lived a full life. Had a music ministry in the 70s and 80s, doing vocal concerts with either guitar or piano accompaniment. Prayer ministry in the 90s and International Ministry from 2001 - 2015. Spiritual warfare, street ministry, giving programs on Hans Nielsen Hauge and more. I have been to Israel 4 times and China 7 times - doing consulting work with the Chinese staff of a ministry. I love giving a program on the history of missions by portraying a woman who went to China with her husband in 1902, and became a widow in 1913, but stayed in China until her death at age 101.

Currently very involved in Blue Grass / Gospel music, both jam sessions during the school year and festivals during the summer. {guitar and singing}

Have been a Sabbath keeper for 15 years. Very involved in Hebrew Roots.

50 years after I started playing the trombone, I bought myself a flute! I play in a city band (Fairmont), and in a small group called Windy Women. Also playing accordion and piano.

Janet, I was just reminded of you as I have sorted through Karen's photos and writings. She made up a time line of her life and included our trip out to see you. I am a bit confused though as she indicated that she and I had made two trips to CO.

Wow, 26 years in child protection. You deserve a medal.

Karen died 12 years ago, from the cancer treatments on her heart and lungs.
