Energized by Joy!

Hi! My name is Karen Oeser. My worship dancing friends call me Pastor Gil, which means “to be joyful” in Hebrew. I try to bring joy into everything I do in life. What’s my secret? I’m a blessing finder. I make it my quest to find a blessing in ANY situation, regardless of how insurmountable and painful it might appear.

“I’m energized every time I enter your heavenly sanctuary to seek more of your power and drink in more of your glory. For your tender mercies mean more than life itself. How I love and praise you, God!” Psalm 63: 2-3 (TPT)

Throughout this website, I share my personal journey through devotions, worship dances, activations, podcasts, speeches and workshops to connect with women who have experienced trauma and ready to start living again. My hope is that you can hear the truth of what God is saying to you and that you choose to receive it and find healing…then importantly, use your experience to begin serving others.
So, come with me, let’s go on adventure together to unleash YOUR inner joy and become everything God created you to be!

You to Energized by Joy!

Hi! My name is Karen Oeser and I welcome you to Energized by Joy! The name of this ministry came to me after God gave me my purpose statement late in 2020. I believe my purpose on this earth is to be God’s radiant light of love and joy for others and myself so that I can confidently lead women to freedom using dance and the written and spoken word.

My worship dancing friends call me Pastor Gil, which means “to be joyful,” in Hebrew. Almost anyone who meets me would concur. I am highly excitable and love to share new ways of thinking. I’ve always had the idea that moments after we arrive in heaven, droves of people will race over to us in gratitude for something we unknowingly did. But I say, “why wait for heaven?” Nothing gives me more joy than letting people know how they unknowingly blessed me by something they said or did in passing. It brings a smile to their face and makes them feel like their lives have meaning and value.

How to Save Family &
Relationships

Go back to the beginning. Ask yourself: What drew me to this person to begin with? What qualities did they possess that I found valuable? What made them so amazing? And are they still? Reevaluating the reasons you came together reminds you of the reasons to stay together, and this strengthens your already-existing foundation.

The Stories of Success

When I first met Karen and she shared her story and goals, there was an instant level of respect. Her background, both professional and personal, has given her knowledge and perspective that is invaluable in the world of women. Coming from a home run by a single mother for most of my life, I have personally seen and experienced the shortfalls of financial education for women and the consequences of such. Karen’s drive, experience, and compassion for women in that same situation will be the lighthouse for those who are drifting further into the dark waters of financial distress. Karen is a character of transparency, motivation, and integrity. The fact that she is at the helm of such a pivotal movement provides certainty for its generational impact.

I initially contacted Karen through LinkedIn because she described herself as a financial literacy advocate. That was an understatement. Her passion to help women become financially literate is unparalleled. I will never forget the energy and drive Karen brought to our first call as she described her vision for Financial Literacy for Her. Karen understands the ugly statistics that some would see as insurmountable, but she views it as a mountain to be conquered. She firmly believes that no woman should be left behind and will not stop until every woman has had the chance to safely and vulnerably learn what it takes to reach financial freedom. It was a no-brainer to partner with Karen through our organization, The Association of Financial Educators (AFE), to provide financial education to her community and beyond. I am honored that she has chosen our organization to join her on her climb up the mountain as we prepare women for the amazing view on the other side.

Karen is the reason I found my way to live out my calling practically and realistically. I’ve known what I was created for, but until our lives merged I didn’t have the wisdom nor the direction or even more importantly the practical every day/weekly/monthly and even yearly steps to effectively reach my potential. Karen awakened the dormant passion inside of me. She cast vision and highlighted life-giving habits and goals for me to grow not only in my career path, but also in my capacity as a free joyful, able, thankful essential being to this world. Her life and business experiences lead me into circumspect practices of making decisions and re-examining current systems and processes to upkeep boundaries and values that otherwise would slow down my growth if dealt with more leniently. Everything I have seen and will come to see of what my tangible life means in this world and to my Creator will intrinsically include who Karen was and is to me and how she was instrumental in leading me into financial freedom.
