Karen Wilber (MA Biblical Studies) has a lifelong love of storytelling, both written and oral. She developed a passion for scripture after being challenged by a pastor to read the Bible in a year. She dovetailed these two loves into the telling of stories from the Bible, particularly the book of Ruth and the parables of Jesus. Her masterï¿½s thesis, The Character of God in the Book of Ruth: Traditional Rabbinic and Current Evangelical Interpretations explored the characteristics of God revealed within the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz.
Karen has a bachelorï¿½s degree in Elementary Education and a masterï¿½s in Library and Information Science. She has worked as a teacher, librarian, and corporate trainer and is currently a stay-at-home mom.
Her writing has been featured in MomSense, Women of Passions, Computers in Libraries, and other library association newsletters. She is a contributing author to The Cypress Times. Karen writes two columns for Examiner.com. She is the St. Petersburg Frugal Family Examiner and the St. Petersburg Frugal Living Examiner.
Her blog, Along the Way--http://karenalongtheway.blogspot.com, is a combination of scriptural reflections and the joy of being a stay-at-home mom with two active children.
Her latest project, a Bible study on the book of Ruth, is currently in revision.
