The worldwide web just got smarter. Through it, the world now has access to a gifted teacher named Karen May. She is mind-and-heart stretching communicator of God’s truth. She sees truth from fresh and interesting angles due to a life-time of an intimate walk with the Father. I have never met a lay-person who is a more serious student of His word. Highly listenable and highly likable! Meet her at

Karen May has brought joy, laughter, and the perfect God-authored message to our ladies as we have gathered for our events. She allows the Lord to speak through her and she makes every woman in the room feel like she is their best friend. It is a rare treasure when you find a speaker (for women’s ministry and otherwise) that is relatable, relational, and radically in love with Jesus!

Karen May is a genuine and authentic teacher. Her love for the Lord radiates as she communicates the truth of God’s word as it relates to women of today. After hearing Karen speak, our women were reminded how deep God’s love is for them. Women walked away desiring to experience the depths of God’s love like never before. She is real and relevant to women wherever they find themselves. Karen’s love for people is evident and her passion for God is contagious.

Karen has served as a spiritual mentor to our Children’s Ministry for 4 years. Her devotion to Biblical teaching and prayer preparation bring a spiritual dimension like none other. Her warmth and love for people and the Lord bring moments when the Holy Spirit ministers to each of us in our greatest need. Her teaching continues to impact us long after our time together is over. I believe Karen is truly set apart because of her devotion to being a student of the word. It’s an added bonus to call her friend and encourager.

You don’t have to be around Karen long before her deep love for The Lord and His Word grips your heart! She is passionate about sharing the story of our Amazing God and His desire to have a personal relationship with us through His son Jesus. Whether its from a stage or across the lunch table, her joyful and compassionate spirit draws you in and then gently compels you to walk in faithful obedience. She is a gifted teacher, speaker, encourager and forever friend.

Karen May is a wonderfully gifted, transparent, and relevant communicator. Her message is grounded in God’s Word and is Gospel-centered. Karen is so relatable and she captures the entire room with her beauty and grace. Her words were powerful and yet so humble. She is refreshingly approachable and clearly lives out what she teaches. The ladies of our church loved having her with us recently, and we would be so blessed to have her come and share the Word with us again.

I’ve had the unique privilege of knowing Karen all her life as her older brother. She is the real deal! Karen is a highly qualified teacher and communicator of God’s Word, but, more importantly, she truly lives the Word. She has a genuine love for others as she engages people through her home, local church, and other ministries. Karen spoke to our women almost two years ago on a Saturday night. The response was so overwhelming, I asked her to speak that Sunday morning (see the videos page). God used her inspirational story to greatly encourage our people. I highly recommend Karen to your church or organization. You will be richly blessed!

Our survey asked: “What did you enjoy MOST about the Retreat?” ALL of them wrote in the box – the Speaker, guest speaker, Karen May, etc. The team members were repeatedly told: “this Retreat has been the BEST one ever.” Karen and her message were the reasons why! She speaks with such love, and it’s wonderfully felt and received. We just want to thank you again, God is blessing you and your Ministry, and through that, all of us.
