TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Totally against the advice and wishes of her parents, Karen decided to marry her high school sweetheart, Brian.  (See episodes 87 and 88 for Brian's story).  He and his whole family were members of the LDS Church. As their friendship grew more serious the concern of both their families increased. Karen walked away from her faith for a time, and in this winsome and often humorous interview, Karen shares the struggles and regrets she went through as a result of her decision. Her story has a happy ending, but we don't get to find out how it works out until part 2. Karen Culbertson is now a licensed counselor and pastor's wife. She is grateful for the grace of God that brought healing to her life and marriage. Listen to part 1 of her story here:  https://unveilinggracepodcast.com/

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The authenticity of love (the willingness to be honest with me face to face) is what blew me away when I considered Christianity. ~Lynn

Make sure your actions match your values. Know what is important (the non-negotiables) before you make any life decisions. ~Karen
