This is Karen


I’m Karen Toews, excited that at every age we can work for and achieve changes that will support our desires for a full, purposeful life.

My favourite people – the support team – are an enduring, endearing husband with unique, crazy ways to help me lighten up; two wonderful children from whom I receive more than I’ve given; and six grandkids (late teens and early twenties!!) who continue to shower my heart with love and joy as they grow towards adulthood.

Nature, physical activity (i.e. hiking, kayaking, cycling, snow-shoeing), adventuresome travel – all of these are my happy places. These feed my well, as does the personal foundation of a guiding faith and assurance as one of God’s beloved.

I’m grateful for opportunities and blessings I’ve experienced on the spectrum of life – though as life is for all of us,  mine has not been without its challenges:

  • precious time stollen over several decades suffering migraine headaches
  • family change and growth: the biggest one moving with my husband across Canada to start a new life
  • the ebb and flow of yearnings of the soul that continue to stretch and re-shape me.

In my fifties, as a Registered Holistic Nutritional Consultant I launched on a holistic health journey and for several years worked and coached others on the same path. It remains a lifestyle foundation for myself and others with whom I share my table.

As a woman in my sixties, I continue to embrace learning and the challenges in re-scripting this stage of life. I am not alone in the discovery of who am I now?” It is my joy and desire to inspire other women in their seasons of change to move ahead with confidence and courage and purpose.
