Ever since she can remember, she has enjoyed teaching others. Her own education path includes paramedic training and 60 hours in the honors program at U of H, which included biology and chemistry. Her life journey truly began in 1981 when she married Joey. In the fall of 1989, God instructed Karen to quit work and school and thus began her career as a full-time mom. Two years later, she became a home school teacher. Her three girls that were her first and most important students are Penny, Jennifer, and Esther. In 2011, Karen graduated their last daughter after 20 years of home schooling. All of their daughters have graduated from college. Her ministry to further science awareness has also included joining her husband as the administrators for 20 years over the Texas Regional Science Fair. This ministry was extended when based on a daughter’s need, Revelation Science Classes, www.RevelationScience.org, was birthed in 2005 to offer high school biology, chemistry, physics, human anatomy & physiology utilizing Christian world-view curriculum, such as Apologia and Berean curriculum. Teaching and instructing others has always been and continues to be a ministry and a privilege to Karen and she lives to be used by God to bring Him honor and glory.
