Welcome to another uplifting episode of Flourish-Meant. I'm your host, Tina Yeager, and today, we have the honor of welcoming bestselling author and inspirational storyteller Karen Kingsbury.

Her Baxter Family books were developed into a TV series also slated for spring, 2024. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University.
