Testimonials

"I was moved by the content of MY TWO HOUSES and excited to gain a copy for my two girls. After reading it to them, I can see the difference it is making in their lives."

DONNA - SINGLE MUM OF 2 GIRLS

"I gave my son CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE for Christmas. It was the most beautiful, heartfelt book I've ever read and he absolutely loves it. I was so touched as a mum reading it to him. Such raw honesty and at the same time, such comfort. Even in a nuclear family, the book would be a good read."

KIMMY -  BLENDED FAMILY OF 4

My Josh loves MY FAMILY BUSH. As a family we read it through after the launch admittedly through some tears at times. Thank you so much for your ministry Karina and your family; you really are such a blessing. 

HELEN - SINGLE MOTHER OF 3 BOYS

I enjoyed ONE STEP AT A TIME because it shows some of the many ups and downs of step families, proving that through hard times and good, God will always be there for us.

My Two Houses tells the story of a child who lives with the challenges of being in a blended family and is helped by prayer, scripture and the knowledge that wherever you are, God is near and can be your friend.

Caught in the Middle is the story of a child whose relationship with God through the Bible and prayer, helps with the difficulties faced and feelings experienced as a result of having divorced parents.

My Family Bush helps to bring meaning to the concepts of 'step', 'half' and 'full' as they apply to blended family relationships whilst showing that all families regardless of their structure are special and loved by God.

One Step at a Time - A Step Family Journal is a collection of short stories written for step families with each chapter of the novel dedicated to one of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. A graphic novel for independent readers.
