Karen’s Christianity is anchored in the Lord, and is always available to help anyone in need. She lives the scripture: Matthew 28:19-20 which says, Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world. AMEN.
The song that is her motto is:

If I Can Help Somebody

If I can help somebody, as I travel along
If I can help somebody, with a word or song
If I can help somebody, from doing wrong
No, my living shall not be in vain
No, my living shall not be in vain
No, my living shall not be in vain
If I can help somebody, as I’m singing the song
You know, my living shall not be in vain.
