Substance Over Shadows is my once-collaborative, now-personal blog inspired by Colossians 2:
These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.
– Colossians 2:17
My name is Karen Francis.
I am saved by grace and a daughter of God. I am the wife of Chad Francis. We moved to Vancouver, Washington in January 2016, a few weeks before our daughter Maddie was born. I am a self-proclaimed pencilligraphist, selective grammar snob, and love finding shadows of the gospel in the day-to-day moments (and sharing them here).
