In her first sit-down interview as second lady, Karen Pence told CBN’s Jenna Browder about the role of faith in her marriage to Vice President Mike Pence.
The Pences’ relationship has been in the headlines in recent weeks following a Washington Post article that mentioned the vice president’s personal policy to not dine alone with any woman other than his wife.
Faith has always been a big part of their relationship and in Tuesday’s interview, the second lady shared a story about a time when the couple was just dating and had a conversation about the way they see God and each other.
Karen Pence’s Passion for Healing: Why She Says Art Is the Answer
While Pence puts God and family first, she also has a passion for healing those who are hurting. That’s why she believes strongly in art therapy and has chosen it as one of her main initiatives.
Pence was an art teacher for 25 years and learned about art healing when she became first lady of Indiana. She saw firsthand the difference it made in the lives of people and became a major advocate for it, lending her support to programs across the state.
“What we’ve found is art therapy can be used for anyone who’s experiencing trauma,” Pence said, noting her involvement with children battling deadly illnesses like cancer.
“But it’s also something that can be used and very effectively with wounded warriors who are going through PTSD,” she added. “It’s very effective with people who have eating disorders. It can be used for grief counseling.”
Now, as second lady of the U.S., she hopes to promote art therapy on a national scale.
