God enables us through Christ!  I hope my testimony throughout these pages encourages you to hang on for a little while longer!  

Just around the bend, there is hope for a better future! 

By faith, I have experienced God take me from places that I was hoping to go, by chasing freedom that was really just all a lie!  

There is hope in all things God has done!  

Please stay encouraged and take a time to read a message that God has waiting for you somewhere within Hope in Today Ministries!  I share with you, because of all God has done for me!  Somewhere on this ministry site, you will find in my blog a writing that I wrote as God actually transformed my pride and stubborn thinking to be set free in the truth of Christ!  Just days later, that very writing helped me yet once again to make the right choice!  And, in these two choices, I have found the blessings that God knew were waiting for me at the end of the rainbow!

Don't give up on something or someone good too soon ... just because a struggle is in the path!  Seek the Truth and stay encouraged and by all means necessary, don't  move until God's peace is with you to take that step that is not based of emotion or pride, but of faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love!

Love in Christ, 
Karen Rowe

Meet Karen and our dog Bonnie


Meet Karen: 


Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed.  I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down.  I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us.


I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone.  If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree.  


Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain?


This is why I write.  By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today!  Jesus is our Hope!  He is the Truth, the Way and the Life.


I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. 


We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI.  We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family.


We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule.


I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! 


I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life.


And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me!  I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ!  Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find!  Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst.


By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven.  God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things.  By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son!  We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us.


To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience.  I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son.  God loves you right now just as you are!


There is so much to learn!  


I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! 


Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him!


Love in Christ,
