Favorite Verse: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

 Joshua 1:9

Why This Verse is Important to Karen: 

More than 23 years ago, I wrote this scripture on a 3×5 card and held it in my hand as I walked into court to finally be set free from my abusive husband of 12 years. I was trembling in fear of him and this command and promise from God assured me that I was not alone and that my God was so much bigger than my circumstances and my abuser. I was transformed from victim to victor! Today I volunteer at the domestic violence shelter that helped me during my darkest days and I share this promise with the many women God has placed in my path.
