"So many speakers have an heir of confidence in their ideas that they put a wall between his listeners and himself. You are one of the few speakers I have ever felt was on the same side of the wall with his audience. It felt like we were all searching for answers together. Your arm was around the attendees' shoulders in the way you delivered your message, and your humility was unexpected for anyone who leads in a crowd. So many people try to do what you did and say, "Follow me," but instead, you were saying, "Walk with me." A small difference, for sure, but all the difference in the world."    - Michael B. T.

"Karl,  you are called to be speak. You always inspire me! Your speech has left me with the question, what has God called me to do? Wow, I'm so excited to find out."    - Rachael B.

"Your talk was amazing!!! I am speechless and left with tears and a strong desire to find God's path for me. Thank you so much for being vulnerable and sharing about yourself. I am moved beyond words and extremely inspired. I feel very privileged to have heard your talk tonight."  - Katelyn O.


"Karl, what a connection I can make with everything you say...you are an inspirational speaker. When I hear you speak it makes me feel alive, with purpose, not alone......what a talent [you have] to connect to me like that and help me to remember some of the most important things I seem to have forgotten..."    - Suzanne R.
