Karl A. Oglesby is a gifted poet/ author, lyricist and artist called by God to "minister to the broken-hearted (and suffering) and to take His message of peace to the world." He has been writing poetry for over 20 yrs. and was well known for his romantic and deeply passionate love poems until He was wondrously consecrated and anointed by God upon which he dedicated his literary gift to the glory of God and the establishment of His Kingdom in all the earth. Most of his poetry is cause oriented as he frequently writes in support of or as an advocate for those who have suffered greatly (for ex: the persecuted church, the anti-slavery movement, anti-violence, victims of church burnings and the holocausts and the broken-hearted; he is also often commissioned to write Living Legacy poems which he describes as being oil paintings painted with words, which describe a loved one’s life, personality and etc.)
