Karolyn

I was born in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada. I lived most of my early life five miles from a little village called Rosseau, right in the belly of the beautiful Muskoka’s.

I now live in British Columbia.

I have Scottish, German, and English roots which kinda makes me stubborn, strong-willed and passionate! These traits are God created, but apart from Him they are my greatest weakness.

I am celebrating 30 years of marriage in 2017.

I am a mother of three adult children, a mother-in-law and  “Nana” to three amazing grandkids.

My greatest passion in life is knowing and loving Jesus Christ through studying the Word of God and prayer.

I am a bit of a solitary, okay kinda a lot of solitary.

I love nature.

I love birds; except Ravens, Crows, Blackbirds, Pigeons and Seagulls; seriously why did God create these annoying creatures?

I love the sound the breeze creates through leafy trees on warm summer days.

I love the haunting echo of the wind through tall Pines on a windy night as I lay resting in my bed.

I love sitting in a canoe in the middle of a mirrored lake and listening to the call of the Loon as evening approaches.

I love the smell of leaves in fall and the sound their dried composition offers me as my feet ramble through them; It reminds me that soon another blanket will fall.

I love the sight of snow-capped mountains against a backdrop of deep blue sky.

I love the sound of the waves upon the golden shores of Hawaii.

I love the smell of the Plumeria flower in Paradise.

I love long quiet mornings with a cup of strong coffee, my bible, journal and the presence of Jesus.

I love reflective quiet evenings sitting by the fire.

I love music!! I love classical, mellow jazz, rock, pop (yes I’m a 80’s girl!) and reflective instrumental movie compositions.

I love to laugh as well as watching others laugh.

My favourite clothes are hoodies, sweatpants and cozy socks.

I love the colour black.

I love reading deep reflective books, biographies of old Saints who embarked on crazy adventures for God, and Agatha Christie novels…mystery is a feast for my mind.

I am a curious kind of girl; I love to ask questions.

I love roller coasters!

My favorite movie(s) is Lord of the Rings; I watch the trilogy at least once a year.

I love the discipline and challenge of physical fitness.

……..

I desire the blessing and privilege of embarking on many more crazy adventures for God even though I am most likely half way through my earthly life.

I have walked many painful valley roads. Roads that were (and are) God’s greatest blessings and kindnesses towards me. I would not have made the discoveries of myself, or of God through His Word had I not chosen to step out in faith and follow Him no matter the cost.

I have ONE hope that is a “sure and steadfast anchor” of my soul and that hope is Jesus Christ.

Because of HIM, I can face every tomorrow that awaits me.

“Adventure is out there!”

  1. karolyn I’m am loving your book. There are already many sentences underlined and starred. The Holy Spirit is using it to speak into a very tender part of my soul. Thank you for being his vessel by putting these beautiful words onto paper. I would love to order books for my girlfriends, but I can’t seem to increase the quantity on the paypal page. I’d like 3 🙂
