Karen Congeni grew up in a family of eleven children. She is a former elementary school teacher and registered nurse. She is a lifelong Catholic. She lives in Ohio with her husband and six children. We Have A Pope! is her first book with more planned. Her great love for children and her Faith inspired her to write this book.
"We are all familiar with the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Karen Congeni's pictures are worth thousands of words in We Have A Pope! as she deftly explains the papacy to children. This book is a beautiful introduction for our young people to the ministry of the Successors to Saint Peter."
