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.
We are always in need of prayer as parents. Parenting is continually challenging. We now have 2 teenagers and 3 younger ones and there is a big difference in how we need to parent each child. Please pray for wisdom, patience, humility, and daily reliance on God’s Spirit.
We just celebrated 18 years of marriage in June. Please pray that God continues to deepen our relationship as husband and wife. He has been faithful in this over the years and we desire more.
Please pray as we work to build relationships with our neighbors. Pray for deeper connections and for opportunities to speak about the sustaining faith we have in Jesus.
Please join us as we continually pray over our children. Evelyn (15), Anthony (13), Lillian (7), Charlotte (6), and Jackson (3). Pray that God will draw their young hearts toward Him and that they will be protected from the pressures of this world and the lies of the Deceiver.
