Thank You for visiting!! Please leave a comment and let me know what you like and what you would like to see in another book... I'd sure appreciate it!
The process of discovering beauty is as individual as each picture taken ... it's as individual as each person who interprets what they see.
To discover beauty, one must pause and be still long enough for the images to actually register and recognize that what one sees is a gift unique to that moment in time.
To discover beauty, a person needs to recapture the child-like wonder that caused them once to ask "why?", "how?" and "WOW"!
May these few pictures of captured beauty cause you to pause and be still to discover the beauty within.

In John 7:37–39 Jesus says, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." He invites us to come to Him and drink. The picture Jesus paints in this verse is a picture of streams of rushing, glistening, cleansing and supremely invigorating water pouring out on believers, and then – in turn – pouring on out from them to affect others around them. What a beautiful picture this provides us: a portrait of true believers experiencing God in their daily walks and allowing His Spirit to flow from them as they are filled by Him. For me that is what this book is about. It documents and vividly displays God’s unique way of flowing into Karen’s life to transform her view of herself, this world and of course, Her Savior. I am certain that through her photographs your spirit will be awakened to His presence in the beauty that surrounds each of us. Through her words you are invited to participate in the journey on which God has taken her. God used nature and a camera lens to fill her, cleanse her, refresh her and restore her. As readers, it is my sincere hope you too will be blessed in that same way, as she willingly shares the streams that have been poured into her life as she faithfully walks with God.

Discovering beauty looks different for each person. For me, it's been a journey through some very painful experiences and being honest with those painful experiences. I had to choose to keep looking. In the year 2000 there were a series of some unbelievable painful experiences... I was desperate to find something "good"... somewhere. I enjoy being in the woods, up in the mountains or at the beach... My story began to unfold as I returned to my passion for Biology- Botany.. micro or macro. Discovering how God attended to every detail, in every living thing. Combining my interest for Photography and Biology... I began to document those "wow" moments as I realized they were bring me life... After the encouragement from friends, I embarked on the project of writing this book. My husband, David, and I live in the Foothills of North Carolina with our twins, Geoffrey and Katherine and our English Springer, Cody. We have homeschooled the twins since 2001. They graduate in May!!
