Dr. Karyn Purvis

We at Dropping Anchors are heartbroken tonight to hear of the passing of Dr. Karyn Purvis (more here). Her work and her faith have paved the way to healing for so many of our sons, our daughters, and our families.

Jesus said, “let the little children come to me,” and I can’t help but imagine Dr. Purvis sitting next to Jesus now. How dear she must have been to Jesus’ heart. She saw through the brokenness to the heart of the child and in doing so set fire to the spark of hope in our families that all children can find deeper levels of healing.

We are grateful for her life and the hope she shared. Dr. Purvis will be missed, but what a legacy she has left us.
