Before motherhood, Karen was a teacher and high school coach who actually had hobbies. Now she spends her days running carpool, parked in the football bleachers or baseball stadium or stealing away to a coffee shop to write or to work on a new speaking message. Though hopelessly craft-challenged with pitiful, partially finished scrapbooks, she enjoys baking and cooking and has won several blue ribbon rosettes at various county fairs for her cookies, cakes, pies and breads.
