Listen For The Still, Calm Voice Of God Karen Braun

These were the life-saving words thrown before Karen’s drowning rebellion. Her desperate cry and broken response became, “Lord, I’ve made such a mess of my life! If you can do anything with it, take it, it’s yours.

That conversation altered EVERYTHING!

Karen has a unique gift mix and set of experiences that she passionately invests into the lives of people and mission organizations around the world.

Being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and servant leader and co laborer has taught Karen that life is messy and that love grows best from a pure heart, a clean conscience and genuine faith. Prayer is the oil!

She currently serves as a Conversation Consultant with Cultivate Prayer helping to cultivate a culture of prayer behaviour and practice, individually and corporately, literally around the world.

Married to her  ‘Sir’ Douglas John since income tax due date of ’83; and after ten years infertility and two failed adoptions, they embraced two natural miracle sons. The couple resides back in Kelowna, BC where they first met, after years of ministry in other provinces and cities. Of course life wouldn’t be the same without Cooper, their mini 3 1/2 lb Chihuahua!

In 2016 after major surgery, Karen was given the diagnosis of having three kinds of “uncommon and complicated” aggressive cancer cells, with two to three months to live. Her prayer became, “Lord I don’t know this, help me.” As she inquired of her Lord, she listened and obeyed His directional voice. Today she is cancer free. Yea God!!!

Her hobbies include creating and observing beauty – painting, decorating, walking, gardening, and hosting parties inside and outside. Karen loves to laugh, listen, and to respond to the life-giving voice of her Redeemer as she reads, journals, walks, talks, plays and prays.


“I found Karen to be articulate, transparent, thought provoking, a great communicator, engaging and a great listener. She is warm and personable, drawing you into the knowledge of God and leading you down a path of your own discovery of Him.”                                                                              – Janet Courtney, Women’s Conference Coordinator

“Karen is a prayer cultivator, the same way a farmer cultivates the soil-by digging down, preparing the soil of one’s heart for eventual seed, nurturing it till it grows and bears much lasting fruit.”  – Shirley Eu, Intercultural Network Canada
