Jenni Swartz, Retreat Coordinator

Was blessed to hear Karen speak at our annual women's retreat last October. She is so funny and we could all relate to her life story. I love how she weaves her testimony with the Word of God and how He has rescued her throughout her life. We thoroughly enjoyed her presentations over the weekend as her effervescent personality bubbled over to the crowd. She totally made us all feel like one of her girlfriends just hanging out for the weekend!

I was blessed to hear Karen speak at a women's conference. I love her honesty, her ability to laugh at herself and encourage us to laugh at ourselves, her willingness to get "in the trenches" with us, and her compassion. I believe everyone can benefit from hearing her speak.

Lisa Parnell, Fall Conference Leader

Our church had Karen come and speak at our fall conference last Oct. 2017 and Karen was a hit with the ladies. Karen had a great message for the ladies and her delivery was honest, warm and funny at times as well. We enjoy speakers that are published in order to sell inspiring books to continue the message after the conference is over. I would highly recommend Karen for any ladies retreat or conference.

I really enjoyed how Ms. McCracken was able to find the humor in everyday and sometimes embarrassing occurrences. I laughed from deep down inside, which releases stress and tension - something I think we all carry as anymore we seem to be "on call" most of the time.

Karen was the guest speaker at our Fall Women's Conference and she was exactly what I needed at the time! Karen was raw and honest yet hilarious. She spoke of relatable issues while being encouraging with scripture. It would be a blessing to hear her speak again.

"The following is a letter from my previous Pastor and mentor, Pastor Tyre Denney, who has since gone on to be with the Lord. To Whom It May Concern, Karen McCracken demonstrated her ability to reach our entire congregation through speaking in our services and through ongoing programs and events. She is an excellent communicator, well organized, creative and has a spontaneous wit and humor, which is very refreshing. She earnestly seeks to meet the developing spiritual needs of our children and youth. Her creative approach to their unique needs has been evident in the wide variety of programs she has developed and implemented such as: Friday Night Lights, Praise and Worship for Kids, Creative Ministries, TNT Tuesdays, Summer Sunday Nights, Puppet ministry, 24 Hours of Prayer, children’s & youth camps, Youth mission trips, Bible Studies, community service projects, conducted reverse Trick or Treating during Halloween......
