Karen Argust Bio

I am a single mother of two beautiful girls ages 32 and 8 and a grandmother of five.  I adopted my oldest when she was 10 and my youngest when she was 2 ½.  My youngest is also one of my five grandchildren.

I was born outside Detroit, Michigan but by age five we were living in Denver, Colorado.  I am the eldest of five children.  Colorado is where I lived until 2015 when I retired and moved to Texas.

I worked in Finance at Lockheed Martin for nearly 30 years.  Other employment included positions in bookkeeping, accounting and payroll for construction and home builders.

I have a bachelors degree in Business Administration from the University of Denver.  I just recently completed a three-year bible study curriculum at Faith Bible Institute.  I have dreams of completing the first degree I pursued right out of high school, which is music education. I have completed three years of studies in this pursuit.

In addition to directing children’s choirs, I have sung in church and community choirs.  During college I also taught flute lessons.  Currently I am an active member of First Baptist Church Universal City, where I am a choir member.  I also am a member of the Praise Team and the hand bell choir.

As a Girl Scout, whose mother was our leader, I learned to sew my own clothing in 4th grade.  I enjoy sewing still although raising an active 8-year-old takes up much of my time.  I also enjoy many other types of crafts like crocheting and needlepoint.

I am excited to share my knowledge with young people and watching as they explore their full potential.
