Karen Franceschini, MA, has worked in the field of early childhood education for thirty-five years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Child Development. She feels grateful to be able to combine her love for children and her strong Christian faith in this, her first publication. Karen’s 2020-2021 preschool class is the inspiration for I Promise to Always Be with You, and it is her hope that it will bless children all over the world. In her free time, Karen enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and pets. She also enjoys reading, gardening, and days at the beach. She wishes to give God the glory for this work and “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
