New York Times bestselling author and Proverbs 31 speaker, Karen Ehman, lives on alert. She waits to hear “heart drops”, those hints that indicate a way to someone’s heart, so she can best love those around her while managing the demands of her busy life. Karen is excellent at taking a broad topic like “loving well” and breaking it down to practical steps we all can follow.
In this interview we cover everything from how to schedule check-ins with friends to how to offer teenagers a soft landing place in your home. Karen’s honesty about her own struggles with listening and loving without distraction normalizes the challenges to putting this life of other-centered living into practice. She reminds us how pausing in the middle of our normal busy to focus on someone else’s needs and offers hope that small efforts can make big impact.
You won’t want to miss Karen’s wisdom in both this interview and her newest book. She is simultaneously encouraging and challenging as she reminds us of God’s call to love those around us.
