--- Interview by Nicole Pyles

WOW: First of all, congratulations on your new book! What led you to write this devotional? Thank you! 

Karen: After writing my first book, Time to Refresh, I wanted to inspire people to keep moving forward. So many times we have life-altering events, like a job loss or the end of a relationship, that leave us feeling unsure about our next step. For my second book, Time to Reset, I decided to focus on how to reset different areas of my life, including my faith walk. 

WOW: I love that you said in a recent interview with WOW, that God calls us to inspire one another. I totally agree! For those of us, not feeling very inspirational right now, how do we find the answers that can lead to that sort of growth? 

Karen: I truly believe we’re here to help one another. With so much going on in the world right now, we could all use inspiration and support. If you are dealing with life’s challenges, tell God exactly how you feel. If you are mad, frustrated, or worried, let God know your heart. If you are having a hard time, ask God to show you how to deal with what’s going on in your life. If you know someone who is going through a tough time, offer to help by meeting with them regularly just to talk. If they have questions about a new career path, help them find the answers. 

WOW: I love your advice! Talking to God has helped me in so many ways in my own faith walk. You work one-on-one with writers all the time. What is a common struggle that you see writers deal with? 

Karen: One of the most common struggles I see in new writers is making time to write. On the one hand, they’re eager to write, but on the other hand, they find it hard to fit writing into their schedule due to other commitments. I understand exactly how they feel. For a long time, I used to struggle to find time to write. Until I decided to make time to write. The first thing I help new writers do is to establish a writing routine where they block out time on their calendar to write or work on tasks related to their writing projects. 

WOW: It makes such a difference to block out time. Okay, you are a content marketing pro! I love your blog and website. How do you keep up with it and get your blog post ideas? 

Karen: That is so sweet and a huge compliment, thank you! In 2017, when I made the decision to become a blogger I knew I wanted to offer a valuable resource for people. I did a lot of research before I started blogging and I took a course to become certified in content marketing. 

As a blogger, you know that blogging takes lots of time and focus. To keep track of everything, I have a content strategy for the year, which includes a content calendar that outlines the topics I plan to cover each month. To find ideas, I read lots of articles and read comments to see what people are talking about or the areas where they need help. I try to offer solutions to real problems. 

WOW: That level of research and planning shows me how much of a true expert you are! What are you working on next? 

Karen: I’m working on a few writing projects. One project I’m working on is my first fiction book. It’s in the very early stages but I’m working on an outline right now. My other writing project is the next book in the Time to Grow in Grace series called, Time to Rejoice, which I hope to publish later this year or in early 2022.

WOW: Count me as your first reader when your fiction book comes out! And good luck on the tour!
