About Our Speaker: Karen Sheehy

A native of New Orleans, Karen Schwaner Sheehy, is a wife and mother.  Raised in the Catholic faith, Karen had been given all of the tools needed to fight the battles that were waiting for her.  However, she must choose to use those tools to live in the love, joy and light of Christ.  Pained by the journey of becoming a mother and raising a challenging son, Karen learns to place her trust in God, and finds that he is always there as a patient Father, loving her and calling her to himself.

Through this journey, Karen has been given the strength to share her story with others as a motivational speaker, blogger, president of a non-profit, and developer of spiritualsafariguidecom.  She has learned to trust God and allow him to use her in helping others trust him as well through her latest project of writing a book, The Healing Eyes of Mercy.  Currently she is serving as the Louisiana WINE (Women In The New Evangelization) Specialist and is pursuing her Master’s in Theology at the University of Holy Cross in New Orleans along with a certification as a spiritual director for the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

Karen lives with her husband Tom and son Joseph in Mandeville where they attend Mary, Queen of Peace Parish for the last 15 years.

Personal Prayer ministry is available upon request after the meal.
Logo items and books are available for purchase.
