I’m Karmen, the voice behind Blessings Beyond the Barnyard. I’m really glad you stopped by.
On this page, you’ll find a few shots of the people who keep my heart turning flips. The tall cowboy in the pictures below stole my heart a couple of decades ago, and we begat two smaller cowboys after years of infertility and two losses. I’m pretty crazy about them and by that, I mean I’m crazy about them. We have recently become foster parents and can’t wait to see what God does through these scary steps of obedience. We are doing our best to live with intention, loving life on a farm in Alabama.
On the blog, you’ll read about things I love: Jesus, big hair, BIG prayers, encouraging and exhorting YOU. Exhort is just a fancy word meant to FIRE YOU UP! Did you know our creative Creator has a plan and a purpose for YOUR LIFE? This isn’t dressed rehearsal, and God wants so much more for us than the shallow end of the pool!
My hope is to excite YOU with REAL stories about REAL life and challenge you to #PrayBig because we serve a GREAT God! ( Side note-I LOVE ALL CAPS, BOLD font & use excessive punctuation!!!)
Mostly, after visiting this space I hope you feel like we’ve met for coffee or visited on the porch because those conversations are my favorite.
