Presenter: Karen Ervin
Karen Ervin has given her life to Christ and is consecrated as a virgin living in the world for the Archdiocese of Detroit.  Her love for the Lord is infectious and she leads women and youth retreats so that others might encounter Christ. She comes with a wealth of knowledge in the battles we face everyday to live the faith, having worked for 23 years as a high school teacher, counselor and principal. She now works in parish ministry and shares the Gospel as the Associate Director of Evangelization at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth, Michigan.

In Taste and See, Ginny Kubitz Moyer demonstrates how the five senses are a powerful, biblically based means for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the “messy splendor” of daily life. Each sense is allotted five chapters, and every chapter concludes with Ignatian Examen-inspired prayer steps that encourage us to recognize and reflect upon God’s presence and goodness in the physical world. Ginny Kubitz Moyer is an award-winning writer from California.
