Kari Trent Stageberg
At 20, I found myself trapped in an abusive relationship. Several years later, the Lord literally and physically rescued me. At that point, I surrendered my life to Christ, and He began the incredible work of healing and restoration in my life and family. That brings us to today. I believe that EVERYONE can experience that SAME restoration and healing – no matter what decisions you’ve made, or what life has thrown at you. I believe that begins with a personal relationship with Christ, and from there, resources like The Blessing will help you discover the INCREDIBLE person you are – and the UNIQUE purpose only you have here on earth.
