Karen Eidemiller, Massage Therapist
My motto: "Karing Karen Cares for You"
Who am I?
Hi, my name is Karen. I'm the one in the scrubs in the picture to the right.
Over the last year and a half I have been involved in the massage therapy program at Everest Institute in Tigard, Oregon, in order to become a massage therapist.
Well, November 2nd is graduation, a day I've been looking forward to for a long time.
How did all begin for me? Well, I used to do massage for different people throughout my childhood and a great part of my adulthood. For years I thought it was supposed to be just for ministry.
Then one day, about three years ago, I was chatting with someone who I realized later would become a very good friend.
He asked me, "Karen, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
I looked at him and answered, "I am grown up."
"No, seriously," he came back. "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
I told him the only thing that I knew - to be receptionist or a secretary.
"No, Karen. You can be anything you want to be."
What he said had made an impression on me. But, try as I might, I kept coming up with the same answer. Finally, I threw up my hands in frustration and called out to God, "What do You want me to be?"
And as I sat there, I heard the Lord say to me, "Karen, all of this time, you thought that you were supposed to be doing massage for ministry, but I have not only given you your hands to do massage for ministry, but I want you to become a massage therapist and make it a living."
So I made the call to Everest Institute. Three months later, I began the program.
It's taken me a bit longer than a year but I'm finally
graduating on November 2nd. And I know it will be one of the best days
of my life.
What can I do for you?
