karikampakisMy name is Kari, and one thing you should know upfront is that I’m a work-in-progress. If you are as well, you’ve hit the right place.

My first job is raising four precious girls. My second job is writing. Writing’s my passion, and the more I bare my heart and soul, the better my life gets. Walls come down…wounds heal….amazing people cross my path. Honesty is contagious, and when I open up I give others permission to do the same. This is rewarding to me. The truth has set me free.

As you cruise my site, you’ll learn about me and my life filter. In my columns and blog I talk a lot about God, and that’s because His fingerprints are all over my journey. God is my rock, and only when I see and seek Him do I come alive. Only when I think about eternity does this world make sense.

I’m thrilled to announce that my debut book from Thomas Nelson, 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know, is now available for pre-order! You can find it on Amazon and Christianbook.com, and after its release in November 2014, it will be available everywhere books are sold. I’m very excited and would love your help spreading the word. Written for teen and tween girls, it’s a practical roadmap based on God’s timeless truths.

To read my work, start with my most popular pieces: “Raising a Kind Daughter,”10 Common Mistakes Parents Today Make (Me Included),” “10 Truths Young Girls Should Know,” “If I Die Young,” “The Scary Truth of Raising Daughters,” and “Children are Blessings, Not Burdens.”

You can also find me on The Huffington Post and watch a live interview here as I share my experience in navigating the world of daughters.

Thanks for dropping by, and please join me on Facebook or subscribe to my blog to keep up with my writing and book updates. I’d love to connect with you!
