It's no surprise to me that Karen received a Dove Award, a Movieguide and a Grace Award for her soul-stirring performance as Miss Clara in the movie War Room.
I asked Karen if she had any advice to share with single Christian women about marriage.
"If you're feeling the pressure to get married, just to get married and you haven't found anyone," she said, "don't just jump into any situation to have a husband and to have a child.
You could be jumping into a fire. Trust God because nothing is more wonderful than having a mate that is loving and supportive. This is a healthy relationship to bring a child into."
Read about Karen's journey of conceiving and giving birth after age 35 on my InSeason Mom blog.
You can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter and her Website.
