Episode 28: HOME; Yay! You’re Here

Why is it that anyone with an accent makes regular words sound even better? Karen Ehman is our special guest today and her Midwestern accent is warm and endearing. She is a New York Times bestselling author and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Her book, Reach Out Gather In, is all about making our homes a welcoming place for others. Karen reflects on the things her mom taught her that continue to make a difference in how she lives and mothers her own children. Her challenge for us is to look around at someone that needs your love and encouragement and reach out to them.

In this season of HOME we wanted to get to know Karen’s home and family. She has grown kids but a couple of them came back to stay for a while. Her wisdom for charging rent is a golden nugget of greatness. What a treat to hear from a mama farther down the road about what’s to come and how to handle adult kids. Her straight talk is refreshing!

Her latest book, Make Their Day: 101 Simple, Powerful Ways to Love Others Well, is full of creative ways to show someone how much you appreciate them. Don’t minimize the gift or words you share with someone…it may be exactly what they needed at just that moment. Find Karen Ehman and all her great wisdom at or on Insta @karenehman.
