Stepping onto Karen Sheppard's property you feel right at home. It is a place of welcome for all ages, from all walks of life, and that is just how Karen likes it. Children can run and play in the yard and friends and neighbors can fellowship at her garden table.
For Karen and her husband, home is a place of life, creativity and hope. It is a place where bodies and souls are fed around the table ~ where everyone has value because they are made in the image of God.
Karen's story of home chronicles decades of experience in cultivating a place of belonging through homemaking. She has made a home for her children, for their children and she hopes to one day nurture the souls of yet another generation.
