110: Ministering Out of Personal Tragedy with Karen Altizer
Show Notes

One of the ways God makes the most out of our pastor wife platform is by using our experiences to help others. A personal tragedy in Karen's life has become the catalyst for a community-wide (and beyond!) outreach to minister to those whose lives have been impacted by the grief surrounding the death of a loved one. In this episode she shares how God brought her healing after the suicide of her brother to eventually become a facilitator for Grief Share, a ministry that helps those facing the deep hurt of losing a loved one or friend and supports them as they move toward rebuilding their lives.

Karen Altizer resides in West Virginia with her husband and children.  She is a pastor’s wife and a homeschool mom, and volunteers for various ministries within her church and community.  Karen has been in full time ministry for over 20 years and has been a facilitator for GriefShare for six years.
