Meet Karen

My husband and I have raised three children. All are doing well. Now they are all successful adults. I love children. My friends could tell you how much I love children. Whenever I see a child or baby, I break out in a smile. I love all the children at church. At this point, I am only interested in being an occasional Sitter.

Karen L. responds:
Hi Kelley, thanks for the great review.
Rachel H. says:
Karen is one of the best babysitters we've ever had. She takes time to understand you as the parent and the children, and she truly has a loving heart. I'm so happy we were able to find such a wise and caring babysitter for our two boys, both of whom can be a handful!

Karen L. responds:
Hello Rachel. Thanks for the great review. Your boys both have different personalities. I enjoy a challenge. I am glad that both of them have warmed up to me. Thanks and happy New Year. Ms. Karen
Sonali L. says:
We were visiting St. Louis for one night and Miss Karen watched our 4 month old daughter in the hotel while we were at a wedding downstairs. Not only was she incredibly prompt to respond to my inquiry and arrive day of, but she was extremely aware and understanding of how we felt leaving our daughter with someone we barely knew --- even if we were very close. She was very loving and caring of our daughter and... More

Karen L. responds:
Dear Sonali, I am the lucky one. I enjoyed rocking her to sleep, several times. :) I hope you enjoyed your stay in St. Louis. Call me if you ever come back. God Bless Ms. Karen
Taneia L. says:
Karen is an awesome sitter. Our son took to her instantly which is saying a lot. She is flexible, punctual, and overall a great sitter. You can tell that she loves kids. We were very apprehensive about hiring a sitter because our son has never been without us, but after we interviewed Karen we were very impressed and at ease. We will be using her again!!

Karen L. responds:
Good day Taneia, Thanks for the kind words. I enjoyed watching your son. I will see you next month. God bless the three of you. Ms. Karen

Hi Jolonn, I hope you call me when she can travel. Bless the both of you. Karen
Shawntelle M. says:
Karen did a wonderful job watching my three children. I came home to see my daughter really took a liking to her and later asked for Miss Karen to come back again if we needed her. I will definitely hire her again.

Karen L. responds:
Hello Shawntelle and Dr. C., I had a wonderful time watching your 3 gifts from God. Thanks for contacting me and entrusting me to sit with your children. I'm looking forward to you calling me again. Thanks and God Bless. Ms. Karen
Jenifer B. says:
Karen sat for my 20 month old son on a day when he was not feeling his best. He clicked with Karen right away. She is so kind and caring! She arrived early for our appointment. She did a great job of feeding and playing with him. She even followed up with a phone call to check on him. She is a wonderful Christian woman and a great sitter!

Karen L. responds:
I felt right at home. Her son and I got along very well. I am looking forward to seeing all of them very soon. What a wonderful way to spend my Sunday afternoon and evening.
Taiwo A. says:
Karen was very great with my son! She arrived on time and was very understanding. Thank you so much for being such a great help, I couldn't have asked for a better sitter for my son.
Posted: 04:39 PM, Sep 20, 2012 | Relationship: Karen worked for Taiwo
Karen L. responds:
I had a wonderful time with your son. This was the first business trip, that he has been on. Normally, a family member took care of him. He has a smile that would lighten up a room, as well as my heart. Taiwo, thanks for giving me the privilege to look after your baby during the day. Give him a big kiss in the morning from me. God Bless your entire family. Ms. Karen
Amanda H. says:
Karen was on time and my boys instantly took to her. She was very kind and did a wonderful job watching them. Thank you Karen!

Karen L. responds:
Hello Amanda, Thank you for the great comments. I enjoyed watching your boys. Hopefully, you will call me next time you have a "date night". God bless all!!! Thanks, Miss Karen
Leslie C. says:
Karen arrived to the interview on time and seemed very interested in my child.

Karen L. responds:
Thanks Leslie, I enjoyed meeting the both of you. I wish you the best of luck, with the sitter you chose. Karen
Tishaura J. says:
From the moment I saw Karen's photo and read her profile, I just knew that she was a good fit. She's been a true godsend for me and my son. My mother passed away years ago and I don't have very many people I can call for advice on raising my son and Ms. Karen has helped me tremendously. You won't be disappointed if you hire her. She is fabulous!!

Mallie E. says:
Amazing woman and came into my life at the right moment. She fit right in and my kids adored her! She really helped me with my infant girl since we've just moved here from nashville. She cared for her, fed her and rocked her to sleep. She also assisted with my laundry, some kitchen duties and always offered a hand. Most of all, she understood what it was like to be a mom to three kids and offered help when... More
