God’s Financial Plan for your Life
God has entrusted you with exactly the unique financial “talents” He has so intended. Sound stewardship is up to you, and that you are provided with His Word as your guide. It’s not about what you will do with those resources, but rather what He can achieve through you—using the resources He gave you, while growing you into fellowship with Him in the process.
Karren C Johnson - Financial Counselor/Coach - Contact Me
Born January 20th 1970, and raised in a small town named Woodbine MD. I lived there for 29 years. I met my husband Hersel Johnson in 1997 and we married in October of 1999; March of 2003 we had our first child Sophia.
I received Christ into my life October of 1996. Soon afterwards I became a member of United Methodist Church. Now I am a proud member of Great Commission Deliverance Ministries (Waynesboro, PA)
In October of 2008 I experienced a hardship, due to the recession, and it was the biggest situation that I have had to experience in my life. In this time all of my personal resources were exhausted. I also was facing foreclosure on our home, but the hand of God moved and sustained our home and family for the 18 months that it lasted. No, my husband was not given a job, nor did we win the lottery, but through much prayer, and through trusting God in a situation that was much bigger than us, we handed it over to God, over and over again. My mind was set on paying what bills I could and staying obedient to giving to God, even though when tempted to use Gods Money otherwise. I believed that my obedience and my trust in God that he could do much with little, God never failed me.
In those 18 months when my husband was laid off, I taught myself how to manage/spend Gods money and how to become content with what I had to work with. Gods word “I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU” became well known to me. In April of 2010 my husband was offered a good job. One that was better than any of his previous places of employment. God had protected our home from foreclosure, and we even had debts paid off in the mist of it. I was not out the woods yet financially, but the worst was over and the restoration could now begin. I was left with a feeling of fullness from what I had just finished experiencing and learned.
I said to God, I feel as if I need to tell people about this, and help them through financial hard times, but I did not know where to start or how. In 2012, I was presented with the opportunity to become a Financial Counselor. At that point I realized God was answering my prayer. Since God had provided for me and my family in an amazing way, I was more than glad to except this position.
I am a Financial Counselor/Coach providing free counseling, through the Christian base group Vision Resourcing Group. This organization provides training and many tools for us to learn how to handle our money Gods way. God desires us to be good stewards over out money.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

In the book's third chapter titled, "Race, Racialization, and Asian-American Leaders in Post-Racist Evangelicalism," Yong writes that "the North American evangelical world has taken many important steps toward overcoming the racist history of slavery in this country, and my own story, to be told in this chapter, reflects how I and other Asian-Americans have been beneficiaries of such repentant attitudes and even practices."
