Bullies and a Change of Heart

Posted by Karen Hessen on Saturday, March 23, 2013, In : Bullies 
I enjoyed my monthly lunch with my sister, Amy, yesterday. It is always pleasant to revisit our past and to look at the things our adult children have accomplished, the challenges they have overcome and to champion them on as they continue to face obstacles in their lives. I had the privilege of meeting Amy's new puppy, Tytan. He promises to provide future fodder for my column "Out of the Ark." 
  

Amy is older than me by five years. I have always depended on her counsel. When we were growing u...

Infinitely Trees

Posted by Karen Hessen on Sunday, July 24, 2011, In : Infinitely Trees, 
I am nearly finished with the Apprentice Course offered through the Christian Writer's Guild. It has been, on some levels, challenging, but on all levels rewarding.

Isn't this gorgeous? A field of red clover near our home.

I look forward to this every spring. The area we live in grows crops for seed. Red clover is one of those crops and undoubtedly the most gorgeous. 

The big May birthday event is over for our family. Doug is busy trying out all of his new gismos and gadgets. 

I have had a devotional published in the Secret Place, Summer, 2011 edition. You can pick up a Secret Place at any American Baptist or First Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church.

Happy Birthday, Kurtis!

Posted by Karen Hessen on Friday, February 18, 2011, In : adoption, child abuse 
Kurtis turned 35 on February 17th. He is not exactly the same kid I adopted in 1978. At that time he was the most severly abused child to survive in the United States. Today he works at Jennings McCall residential facility in Forest Grove. He is as lovely on the inside as he is handsome on the outside. That's mom talk.
