"Passionate, energetic, contagious, and fanatical (in a good way)!! These are just a few of the words I would use to describe my friend, Charisa Knight, whom I have had the privilege of knowing over 18 years. I have watched her blossom from a timid, young wife and mother into a power-house presence in the local church and community fighting for the "under-dog" and the oppressed around the world. Her research and life experiences have made her a knowledgeable resource in the areas of human trafficking, adoption and parenting. Her bio says it all!
When Charisa speaks, you will want to listen because you will hear God's heart through her words. God has given her a gift and that is to speak His message for people to wake up to the ugliness around the world and get involved in doing something about it. Charisa's heart is to point us all towards God so we can find the ministry that makes us passionate, energetic, contagious and, yes, fanatical (in a good way)!!"
