It’s here.

Launch day.


All those words.  All those stories.  All those hours of writing and thinking and dreaming and hoping and planning.

They launch into the universe today.

It all started with the elevator doors opening and my first book, So Close To Amazing.

And because of you?

And your encouragement.  And your support.  And your heart.  And every single one of you that cheered the book across the finish line.

It became a best seller.

And now?

It has a friend.

Meet the newest member of the family.

You’ve Got This Because God’s Got You.


We live in a world that’s weary today.

I see it online and on social media.  I see it in the faces of the Walmart checkout line.  I see it across the miles and the hearts of so many who have written me and e-mailed me. The hurting. The overwhelming. The challenge of waking up and facing the day and putting one foot in front of the other.

So many of us are facing giant mountains that look insurmountable where we can’t even get a foothold to face the climb.

I get it.

I understand.

We all need an extra dose of hope right now.

And that is exactly why I wrote You’ve Got This Because God’s Got You.

This devotional book is filled with 52 stories that uplift.

Stories full of joy. Stories that celebrate imperfection. Stories of walking through the valley. Stories that will help you shine with the strength and the confidence that God’s love can bring.

It’s a tiny, pocket-sized, power-packed message of hope.

So just in case no one else has mentioned it today….

….let me be the first.

You are incredible. You are amazing. You are such a rock star that astronauts can see your sparkle from outer space. You are unique and special and wonderful and creative and in all this whole wide world there is no one else like you.

And the best part?

You’ve got today.

You’ve got tomorrow.

You’ve got all the mountains and journeys and challenges and hurdles and overwhelmingness and the steps yet to be taken


You’ve got this….

….because God’s got you.

You can order the devotional today (and one for a weary friend, too) here.

And it’s friend, So Close To Amazing here.

    A great big hearty CONGRATULATIONS, KariAnne!!!! You rock with the big dogs, my friend! Like a Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Tim McGraw rock star all rolled into one, with huge doses of John Maxwell, Zig Ziglar and Lysa Terkuerst leadership, encouragement and faith all tossed together in a great big KariAnne Wood salad. Or maybe a pie, because you're sweet. (But not like a fruit salad - definitely dessert!) Love you and wish you all the best!!

    A well deserved Congratulations!! This will be a thoughtful Christmas gift for many friends. Making things pretty is wonderful and fun (and I recommend it! .) Sadly, not all problems can be fixed with a glue stick and glitter. But stirring people's hearts and giving them hope, now that's a WORLD changer! Hope it's a best seller, KariAnne!

    I know God's got me, you see I have migraines every day--some days tolerable, other days not--but I carry on, because God's got me. This book will help me (along with umteen other meds Lol.) But there will be a cure some day. In the mean time, I need your book and I bought one for my best friend's birthday because she is fighting a battle too. Thanks for writing this book, Karianne. Please keep on a keepin' on!!!

    It's so nice when things happen to deserving people! Congratulations on another book launch. I'm so happy for you. It takes a certain amount of courage to put yourself "out there" in this day and age when so many people feel entitled to be critical and hurtful. I'm so glad I found your blog. It's one of my pleasures of my morning while having coffee. Stay upbeat and smiling. We need more like you! Have a blessed day dear!

    You wrote another one?! Snuck it right under my nose, I see. That is awesome! And I agree. I think the people on this little planet ARE weary. I am so happy you are there to make us all feel like you are our best friend. You darling girl, you. I was just thinking the other day how I needed to reread your first book, because I inhaled it the first time, and I want to revisit to see if I missed anything in my hurry. I love that you are out there putting happy and hopeful into the air and watching it float like a helium balloon escaped from it's weight. Such a lovely way to spend your life. Smooches from VA, The Other Marian

    Yippee! I love celebrating your accomplishments. This is another WOW moment my friend. You will need to take a little rest now, okay. You don't want to get a joy headache, LOL. Seriously KariAnne, you are amazing and filled with faith, love, and kindness and it shows in everything you do. It shows in comments left when we both started our blogs and had no idea what to do after we hit the publish button and it continues through today and will in the future. You are my sister through Christ my bloggy friend and an all around blessing, I will always celebrate you. xo
