Every bride wants her father's blessing and to have the wisdom that comes from more than forty years of happy marriage.
In this classic book, a father writes letters of love, encouragement, and advice to his newly engaged daughter. In his letters are the hopes and dreams that all parents share for their children as they begin a new chapter of their lives.
Beloved for its thoughtfulness and insight, the advice found in Letters to Karen is a sound and relevant today as when it was originally written in 1965.
Dr. Charles W. Shedd was a master communicator of homespun wisdom. He authored more than forty books, wrote nationally syndicated columns, and was a favorite guest of numerous television and radio outlets. Shedd served as a Presbyterian minister for more than fifty years. Perhaps more than anything, apart from his role as a husband of forty years to Martha and later to Anna Ruth, Charlie Shedd will be remembered for advice on love and relationships. The high-water mark for these efforts can be found in the classic books, Letters to Karen and Letters to Philip which have sold in millions of copies. In them, he mentored a Christian generation in the art of keeping Christ and joy in the heart of relationships.
