In this video, Karen discusses the importance of remembering the real meaning of Christmas. She mentions the distractions and sometimes family tensions that can draw us away from what really matters - the birth of Jesus and why He came.
This is followed by Karen's original song where she asks 'Does it Matter?' If you'd like a copy, just sign up for my newsletter or send me a message and I'll send you the link.
See the words below.
Does it matter it was in a stable
The place of Jesus’ birth?
Does it matter He was born so lowly
when His Glory filled the Earth?
The angels sang “Glory to God
in the Highest.
Peace on Earth. Goodwill to all
on whom His favour rests.”
Does it matter that the shepherds
heard the angels sing?
Does it matter that the Magi
came with gifts to bring?
Yes it matters. It fills the prophesies
in the books of old.
Yes it matters for God’s promise
had been already told.
Hallelujah, oh hallelujah
He’s come to set us free.
Hallelujah, oh hallelujah
He came for you and me.

Megan Jung - Minister, Williamstown Church of Christ
“The Ladies at Wonthaggi Baptist were touched by the message of your life's journey, and how God has healed and blessed you. So many comments were made about your soothing and encouraging songs and how you integrated them with your testimony, and especially that they were your own songs and written from your heart. Thankyou for making the trip down and sharing your journey with us; you have been a real blessing.”
WendyThomas and the Women of Worth Team - Wonthaggi Baptist Church
“We were really blessed when Karen came to Carnegie Church of Christ. Karen's heartfelt testimony of her brokenness, and the power and love of Jesus to heal, were an inspiration to us. Many of the folk who came were not "churched" people, Karen's warmth and openness helped them to feel at ease and open up to the work of God in their lives. I would have no problems recommending her ministry.”
Peter Los- Pastor, Carnegie Church of Christ
“It was truly inspiring to hear how God worked, and still works, in Karen's life. Her songs are so meaningful, and through them Karen gives glory to our heavenly Father. Thankyou Karen and Jeff. Keep sharing your testimony!”
Danijela Vasilevski -- Lifeway Christian Church, Lara
“Karen’s testimony was uplifting, encouraging, and inspiring on many levels and was a blessing to all of us. It is a beautiful marriage of words and song which flow seamlessly together. God’s love, faithfulness, guidance and protection comes through powerfully in her presentation. Karen was encouraged to get out of her comfort zone and God honoured her obedience. A joyful and healing testimony.”
