Karen Ehman is a Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and New York Times Best-selling author. Described as profoundly practical, engagingly funny and downright real, her passion is to help women to live their priorities and love their lives as they serve God and others.
Karen writes for Encouragement for Today online devotions that bring God’s peace, perspective, and purpose to over one million women daily. She has authored seven books including the popular LET. IT. GO: How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith and her newest release Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It and When to Say Nothing at All. Both include a companion DVD Bible study designed for group or individual use. Her next book, Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need to Knock It Off releases in November of 2015 and is co-authored with Ruth Schwenk of TheBetterMom.com
She is also the Speaker Track Director of Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference and a teaching staff member of their writer’s training site COMPEL.
She has been a guest on national television and radio programs including The 700 Club, At Home Live, FamilyLife, Engaging Women, The Harvest Show, Moody Midday Connection, and Focus on the Family. She is a graduate of Spring Arbor University and has been married for over a quarter-century to her college sweetheart Todd. Together they raise their three sometimes quarrelsome but mostly charming children in the boondocks of central Michigan ranging in age from teen to adult.
Her favorite ways to spend her time though are to chat with her grown daughter who owns her own hair salon far away in the Charlotte, NC, watch her oldest son–an electrician’s apprentice–pop wheelies on his dirt bike (while simultaneously deepening her prayer life!) or cheer for her youngest son in the football stands or baseball bleachers. She also is content to just hang out with her man doing absolutely nothing at all. You’ll often find her whipping up something tasty for her family and friends or the many teens that gather around her kitchen island processing life and enjoying something from Mama Karen’s oven. (Although she only has three kiddos of her own, at last count at least seven teens had her in their cell phone as “Mom”)
