What Readers Are Saying About Karen Kingsbury Fiction…

“Karen Kingsbury has been such a godsend. Her books have brought me to God and have motivated my husband and me to remarry after a bad divorce. After not being able to have kids, we now have an adopted boy and are trying to adopt another. Your books show faith, love, and tenderness, and I love them.”
—Kathy, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

“I just love all of Karen Kingsbury’s books. Every one has touched me in a very deep way, relating to one or another ‘storm’ I have gone through and yet giving me hope that God is always there, carrying us when we don’t care anymore whether we live or die. I have been to that place, and God did lift me up from the depths of sorrow and pain! Thank you so much!”
—Henrietta, British Columbia, Canada

“Karen Kingsbury’s fiction has changed my life by reminding me that there is hope amid seemingly hopeless circumstances and that faith in God’s redemptive plan is the anchor I can hold on to when life’s compasses fail.”
—Amy, Lawrenceville, GA

“From Karen Kingsbury’s very first book to her most recent, she has inspired me to be a better person, have a stronger faith in God, and to question how I am raising my family in a world filled with hate and evil.”

“When I went off to college, I fell into a dark depression but convinced myself that Christians not only don’t suffer depression, but that it is inherently un-Christian to be depressed… I bought When Joy Came to Stay and read it in one sitting… I was able to receive treatment for my illness and work on dealing with events and behaviors that led to this depression. The book made it easier for me to see that God can use even dark times to bless us and help us grow.”

“My grandmother has been diagnosed with dementia… Right after her diagnosis, she asked me to bring her some books. I took her everything I own by Karen Kingsbury, which is about ten books. She devoured them! They  encouraged her and gave her hope.”
—Donna I.

“I can’t tell you how much Karen Kingsbury’s books have blessed my life. The novels make me think seriously about what commitment means, sticking it out even when all seems gloomy, and understanding the covenant of marriage.”
