About Karen J Ragland

David and I met in June of 2010. I lived in Bristol Virginia and he lived in Louisiana. After meeting we discovered that we held many of the same values and to say we immediately fell in love is an understatement. We had several hurdles to overcome, but while getting to know each other we discovered that we shared many of the same dreams. Our love of God, and how we can minister his word, our love of family, and honor. It did not take much convincing for me to move to Louisiana where David lived. I took a leap of faith, left my job and moved April 16th of 2011. There were still several obstacles that we needed to deal with head on and resolve but a year later we were married on 4/13/12. We talked for a few years about setting up a Christian blog and/or website and so here we are, finding our way through how to get this started. I think we have done well so far and we are so ready to actively interact with everyone here. We hope we will get to know everyone – whether you believe as we do or not.
