About Karla Jo

I am a follower of Christ. Daughter of the King of everything. I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother (YaYa). Sister, daughter, friend. I live in Waco, Texas and I can’t fall asleep unless I’m wearing socks.

I am a fairly high introvert who functions in an extrovert world. I write far more comfortably than I talk. Were it possible and not completely weird, I would engage in conversation solely by passing notes.

In 1989, Jesus caught the heart He had been pursuing, and I have been following Him home ever since. Along the way, I discovered a calling to minister primarily to women in the Church. Through the years I have met and become friends with some extraordinary women. All of them flawed, all of them in the process of becoming more like Jesus, just like me. Through these friendships, I have learned to trust others with my real self. They taught me what it looks like to be part of a community, how to work through confrontation or difficulties without walking away from the relationship. I’ve learned to worship, pray, care for others, fight for others, and to have fun, all because I have been part of a company of women who love Jesus. Women scattered around the country but still settled very much in my heart.

While I do love the face to face life of ministering to and being friends with women, I feel most alive (and in my comfort zone) when I am creating something with words.

This site is where I get to tell you what God is speaking to me and doing in me, and encourage you to move closer to Him, to trust Him because He is trustworthy. So I hope you will hang around a bit and find something that encourages you, makes you laugh or cry or just want to know Him more.

Welcome to my words. Let’s be friends!
