Lifting the bar for relationships
helping you build relationships and live the victorious life god wants you to live
Karen and Gary Budzinski began challenging couples to apply themselves to strengthen their relationships in 1981, just a month after they were married. They did not realize at that time that the rest of their life work would be dedicated to helping others build better relationships. Karen’s book, How to Build an Enduring Marriage, contains a wealth of information that has benefited an inestimable number of couples over the past 33 years.
Karen and Gary have headed up Women’s and Men’s Ministries for several churches, been Sunday School teachers for adult, youth, and children’s classes, taught Discipleship and New Believer’s Classes, led marriage groups for couples, and counseled troubled marriages. They have held Seminars and taught homiletics to individual groups. Karen has spoken at District levels, and speaks every year to various MOPS groups. They have both taught leaders in Peru and Haiti. Karen teaches an on-going class on Building Better Relationships in their home. Gary and Karen are Certified Presenters for National Center for Biblical Parenting.
Karen and her husband, Gary, live in Michigan. Their family has grown to include five adult children, their spouses, and eight grandchildren, with another one on the way!
