Karisa Moore knows what it’s like to cry out to God with groans that words cannot express (Romans 8:26). After losing her oldest son in 2014 to suicide, the Psalms became her guide through grief. She recognized that poetry, art, singing, and dancing, comfort and give words to some of the deepest heartaches and help us to identify God’s presence in all circumstances. She is expanding our mental health vocabulary to include Christ-centered hope through creative expression.
She embraces life alongside her husband and two living children. She loves long hikes, photography, and great stories. Karisa is the Chapter President of Word Weavers International: Boone County and author of Broken Butterflies: Emerging Through Grief, A Suicide Survivor’s Poetic Journal.
