At a time when authenticity seems to be in short supply, Karen provides a genuine voice for things that matter most. Faith, loyalty, integrity, compassion, and thoughtful patriotism are themes she weaves into a tapestry of transforming and inspiring stories. She can also make me laugh for days while making me think about things in new ways.
Alabama West-Florida Conference of
the United Methodist Church
“I recently had Karen Spears Zacharias as one of my hand-chosen speakers for my annual Pulpwoood Queens Book Club Author Extravaganza and her speech was one of the highlights of the event. Of the thirty authors featured, Karen was by far the crowd favorite! Everyone was inspired.” Kathy L. Patrick/founder of the International Book Club, Pulpwood Queens Beauty & the Book.
“Karen Spears Zacharias is not only entertaining and informative but has a message the church needs to hear. She has that unique ability to get us all to laugh and while our mouths are open, she gives us something to chew on!” Pastor Kevin Lobello. First United Methodist Church/Griffin, Georgia.
“If this writer Karen Spears Zacharias should turn evangelist, the stadium will be full every night.” – Sonny Brewer, author of The Poet of Tolstoy Park.
“Karen Zacharias is the rarest, most valuable kind of speaker and writer. Not only does she transport her audience to the real-life scenes she describes through vivid storytelling, but she also explains the technical details of creating nonfiction work in a clear way, so that fellow writers can follow those blueprints and begin to achieve better results as essayists, memoirists, journalists, and other chroniclers of events and lives. Thanks to Karen’s guidance, her audience is able to convey what happened and what it all means.” – George Weinstein, Program Chairman of the Atlanta Writers Club
