You (Ewe) are blessed. Those three words remind me that I am not forgotten in this flock of humanity. You aren’t either. We have a Shepherd who blesses us and cares about our daily struggles.

Being blessed is not contingent upon our circumstances; it’s about who we are as His sheep and the promises that God speaks over us. Plain and simple, a blessing is a favor from God. When we accept His blessings, we grow closer to Him. Enjoy the blessing that is freely given and, in turn, be a blessing to others.

This blog incorporates the analogy of sheep to symbolically reinforce the blessings that God has in store for each one of us. Be inspired, be motivated, be encouraged as you grow in faith.

About Karen Allen

karen allen author

Karen has lived in the southern U.S. all her life mostly in Alabama but a few college years in Mississippi and honeymoon years in Louisiana. She became fascinated with the field of laboratory medicine in the 6th grade and ended up turning it into a B.S. degree in Medical Technology from the University of Southern Mississippi. She later earned a Master’s degree in Education from her employer, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Karen’s career has been spent in healthcare either in a hospital or research laboratory or managing the Quality Assurance Office for the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center as a certified clinical research professional. However, her love for ministry (writing included) and missions is where her heart lies. Now that she is retired, she is excited to spend more time doing the things she loves.

In 2003, Karen was diagnosed with cancer which inspired the writing of her book “Confronting Cancer with Faith.” Now living a full and healthy life, she glorifies God and encourages others facing crises through her writing, music, and motivational speaking. Ewe R Blessed Ministries serves as the connecting point.

Karen and her husband George “Parky” Allen of 36 years reside in Birmingham, AL. They have no children but have always had dogs that are treated like their children! Karen may be emailed at karen@confrontingcancerwithfaith.com.
