Karl is the newest addition to the FLM staff, joining the team in 2019. He has been married to his incredible wife Jessica since 2004 and they live with their 5 children in Columbia, SC. Karl grew up in rural West Michigan but moved to South Carolina to complete his undergraduate degree in Theology at Columbia International University. He enjoys anything athletic and competitive, from basketball to Bocce ball, from ultimate frisbee to a rousing game of Spades (because no one in the south knows how to play Euchre). Family is everything to Karl. He loves spending his time whooping up on his kids playing basketball in the driveway, wrestling with all the kiddos on the floor, or getting as far away from them as possible to have a quiet date night with his beautiful bride.
I'm thankful for: The life transforming power of the gospel. For the evidence of its power in my own life and the lives of many of the men who are connected to Focused Living.
I'm thankful for: God’s faithful provision for me and my family. Not just financially, but in all areas of our lives. One big one this year was His provision of a great house in a great neighborhood where my family can plant some roots and grow.
I'm thankful for: The wisdom of our Heavenly Father who gives his wisdom generously to us earthly fathers. Parenting is harder than I imagined, but God faithfully provides all that I need to lead my family well.
I'm thankful for: My faithful and supportive wife, Jessica. It is a joy to journey through life with her.
