Rev Karla Blog

I’m passionate about writing. It anchors me to my calling in ways nothing else does. The way a teaching will arrive, often in the wee hours of the night, when I am awakened by the words dancing in my mind. When that happens, I know I’m being invited to bring the words to life to share with you. That is the process – the sacred process.

I’m honored to share this blog with you.
May you dance with these words.

The Bible is Holding You Hostage

You need to hear something. Are you ready? Here it is. The Bible will never say what you need it to say in order for you to be free from the dogma that was part of your religious heritage. If only...
