"I have had the opportunity to know Kara, and have observed her ministry and work throughput the past three years. I can verify personally that she is a women of moral character, of true and deep faith in Christ, and that all her work is orthodox and completely in good standing with the teachings of the Catholic Church. I have personally observed the fruitfulness of Kara’s ministry, and how her songs, words and testimony have powerfully touched and ministered to the hearts of others. I highly recommend Kara Klein as a guest speaker and/or singer for any diocesan school or youth event, as her dynamic way of sharing the Gospel is sure to touch the hearts of both youth and adults alike."
